FASHION DESIGNER CHARLIE CASELY-HAYFORD’S BEST ADDRESSES

Casely-Hayford’s favourite addresses in the capital include a secret cocktail bar in the East End, a landmark modernist house in Hampstead, and a pop-up restaurant in King’s Cross.

Lounge Bohemia, Shoreditch

20 MIN

To sample some of London’s most experimental cocktails, Casely-Hayford suggests heading to this little-known basement bar with a 1960s Eastern European interior (the unmarked door is in between a kebab shop and a newsagent).

Notre Dame de France

‘The tranquility of the building allows you to escape the bustle of Soho and Leicester Square’ says Casely-Hayford.

LN-CC, Dalston

1 HR

Browse rare books and vinyls, and a superb edit of Japanese brands and experimental European fashion labels, at this Dalston emporium. The store operates on an appointment-only basis, which sometimes means you have the entire place to yourself.

Rita’s Bar & Dining

2 HRS

Pop down to Rita’s, a new restaurant set up by the twenty somethings who opened the amazing Brunswick House Café in Vauxhall.

The Place, Euston

TAILOR CHARLIE CASELY-HAYFORD FINDS HIS HOMETOWN A CUT ABOVE

Born and bred in Hackney, London: that’s how Charlie Casely-Hayford describes his upbringing. The son of Joe Casely-Hayford, veteran menswear designer, Charlie spent the majority of his early youth in his dad’s atelier before studying at Central Saint Martins and the Courtauld Institute. Now a designer at the luxury English menswear house Casely-Hayford, he enjoys a career that regularly takes him from Hackney to Tokyo, Paris and New York.

Unsurprisingly, an ever-evolving appreciation of London’s thriving art scene informs his work. ‘During the past ten years, UK style and the art scene have experienced a period of renaissance,’ he says. ‘London has become a magnet for international artists, but equally this influx has helped redefine the notion of Britishness and what that means on a global stage. Also, the art and fashion of the late 1990s that played at being sensationalist seems no longer relevant in a time when the recession has changed a lot of people’s creative landscapes.’

‘London is the antithesis of a mono-culture,’ says Casely-Hayford. ‘I think the breadth of work it produces evokes that.’ The best of UK style, he reckons, is the result of ‘cross-fertilisation of ideas from different disciplines, creating a strange harmony through discord.’

‘When I decided to be a designer, I wanted to do something special, experimenting with form, structure and surface. I put a great emphasis on combining traditional methods with modern technologies,’ he says.

TUDOR PELAGOS

Waterproof to a depth of 500 metres (1640 feet), the TUDOR Pelagos is a fusion of technology and innovation. Its sporting character and impeccable reliability will meet the requirements of lovers of the deep and those passionate about the vital marine environment.
