The weather might largely be grey, grotty, and miserable, but London’s summer festival season is in full swing. With hangovers from Houghton just about banished, and sad girls everywhere wiping their streaked mascara off their cheeks post Lana Del Rey and Ethel Cain, last week, All Points East once again took over East London’s Victoria Park for a season of massive line-ups.
Kicking things off was Stormzy, whose ThisIs What We Mean gig summoned a massive rainstorm, which, despite soaking most of the crowd to the bone, did nothing to dampen the former Dazed cover star’s mega homecoming moment.
Of course, this being East London, the look was as important as shuffling to the front to get a good spot in the crowd. Most braved Stormzy’s biblical downpours sans coats or appropriate footwear, opting for second-skin mini dresses, oversized sportswear, and trashed denim, while on Saturday, Field Day goers showed up in the city’s rising designers, hand customised DIY looks, and secondhand Depop scores.
Capturing the street style across this first weekend was Dazed’s Chester McKee, who headed to Victoria Park with his analogue camera. Click through the gallery above for a look at who was wearing what, and head back next week for all the fashion from weekend two.
