Scott Crolla

I was interviewed yesterday by Mayfair magazine about my attitudes to Mayfair and experience of it over the years.   The thing I remembered most vividly was walking along Dover Street one Saturday morning in 1981 and coming across the grand bow window of Scott Crolla’s new shop.   It was a cornucopia of delights, full of the grandest and most luxurious jackets and shirts at the height of the New Romantic revival.   Of course, I could never afford to buy anything or now it would be a collector’s item, but I can remember the sense of voyeuristic pleasure after a long diet of Moss Bros.

    I remember this well…I used to get my hair cut in the basement of that amazing shop. I think I might have even bought a pair of brocade cigarette cut slacks there….
