England

Free Speech

We wanted to visit a couple of shops today; firstly, the new Y-3 London flagship on Conduit Street. Y-3 is the amazing collaboration between Yohji Yamamoto and Adidas and we were excited to visit the new store.

However when we turned into the street, we were confronted by a street-full of people coming towards us throwing paint and smoke-bombs. Rather than the peaceful protest that covered most of London, this was the bunch of hooded and masked idiots who had broken away simply to smash banks and invade shops like Fortnum & Mason. What they think they are achieving is beyond me; the police are suffering cuts as it is and who the hell do they think end up paying the clean-up bills?? I just don’t understand the mentality of these students, they haven’t got a clue…
