There’s no surprise that Charlotte Hall, one of the founders behind luxury emporium LN-CC (Late Night Chameleon Café) in London’s industrial Shoreditch area is one of the U.K.’s leading ladies when it comes to boundary-pushing style. While prim, proper and ladylike (when she wants to be), this clothing aficionado can rock a pair of Ann Demuelemeester boots without fear and look effortlessly cool while doing it. Her quiet and sophisticated accent doesn’t hurt, either. We shot the subdued blonde with impeccable taste at designer J.W. Anderson’s flat, in conjunction with Aldo’s collaborative project, titled 'Aldo Rise'. As long-time friends, the duo considers each other not only creative amigos, but Jonathan (J.W.’s real name) deems Charlotte his muse, infusing his collections with elements from her personal style. Hall graciously lent her helping hand when one of us (won’t say who!) left our favourite Warby Parker glasses in the taxi en route to her shoot. Let’s just say Hall has a way of tracking down taxi drivers! When all was said and done, Hall gave us an after-hours tour of LN-CC, a kaleidoscopic space designed by the extraordinary Gary Card. We chatted with Hall about Marky Mark, Jonathan's (how do we put this politely?) interesting decor and his master persuasive design skills. “Jonathan has always had a talent for creating conceptual footwear that has become quite iconic. It’s genius, really," Hall told us. And while Hall says she’s a girl who lives in flats (her "well loved" Converse are proof), there’s only one guy who can transform her ways. It’s no surprise that the only man capable of making this happen is J.W. After all, that’s what friends are for.
