Fashion and music are my two favourite things in the world so it was great to witness the two of them side by side at the solo gig of Leo ‘The Lion’ Ihenacho in London. For those of you who are unfamiliar with Leo, you may know his band The Streets, which he was in with Mike Skinner. The group had their first number one in 2004 with Dry Your Eyes and since then went on to achieve several platinum singles like A Grand Don’t Come For Free’ and ‘The Hardest Way To Make An Easy Living’. Now, almost 10 years, later he has decided to have a solo career and determined to make it a success, he invited a few familiar faces to his gig at the O2 Academy in London.
Lisa Maffia from So Solid Crew, who appeared in a series of Celebrity Big Brother, rocked it up in leather trousers (above left) while Made In Chelsea star Binky Felstead made her leather trousers more clubby with an orange top. It was a busy night in London as before Leo’s gig, the Made in Chelsea cast were all at the five star Sanctum Hotel in London to raise a glass to cast-mate Spencer Matthews new book, Confessions of A Chelsea Boy. At that party were MiC’s Andy Jordan and Victoria Barker-Harbord (below) – also in leather – with Victoria rocking a stunning leather jacket that is very similar to the Definitions embossed leather jacket. It’s all about the detail on the back so you make an entrance when you leave as well as when you arrive.
I think I need to get some Definitions PU trousers for my next gig night out as I went for a shorts look to congratulate Leo after the gig. Leo’s album Big Trouble in London is out now and he exclusively revealed to me he’s got a lot more gigs lined up to promote it. Check out Leo’s website for more details.
Meanwhile Lisa Maffia has moved into music management and has signed a new three piece guy band called The Clef Truants. They’re good looking boys with soul and they’re just one of a few groups Lisa is working with to take them from performing to their friends to chart success like she’s had. Watch this space!
