British Siblings Nadia And Hassan Discuss Vintage Fashion And Photography (VIDEO, PHOTOS)

Siblings Nadia and Hassan live in a way that is refreshingly traditional and yet distinctly modern, much like the quaint countryside to which they retreat from their urban lives. Preferring Dostoevsky and the spoken word to Facebook and Twitter, Hassan wears his dad’s khakis with a unique touch; he rolls up the hem to fine-tune the proportion. Plus, he adds a chambray shirt (which he cut into a vest) and wears it over a T-shirt.

Nadia is interested in esoterica; books like The Poetics of Space, films like Fassbinder’s The Bitter Tears Of Petra von Kant and taking photos with film. She makes kitschy corduroy overalls with a Mickey Mouse belt and sweaters recovered from her childhood seem 21st century. Few can tuck socks into trousers with handmade brogues and possess both a serious stature, while remaining hip like Hassan, or exude both a sultry and edgy glamour in a calf-length dirndl skirt with a chopped-off man’s shirt like Nadia.
