“Intimacy Journey” is a project, created by two Roman photographers, interested in the diversity of the cultural arena that inevitably affects the fashion fields. London creates a natural habitat for the springing of the variety of colours and languages, which in a unique way become almost universal.
In such a context it is principal to distinguish the individuality of one person. Starting from a single individual, our aim is to search the deeply hidden factors of the individual’s aesthetic, recreating a unique intimacy concealed inside a person.
Our base is the person, the person that extends beyound one human being and inadventently affects and integrates with people around.
Thinking of that, the project extends towards all the people engaged in this project. The result is an unconventionl sharing of experience that streches beyound the trends of two realities of Rome and London, but embraces the experience of the world as a whole.
Mia Le Journal embarks on the project dictating a style that extends far beyound the single cultural context, it becomes a meeting point between multiple “intimacies” that produce a universal language.

“I walk unseen in a corridor of doors…
…words of chalk written on a black door…telling stories of a keyless night”“I silently climb wooden stairs without reaching the top…London light is grey water in which you drown…
…and an open door on top of those stairs…it is a cascade from which you cannot escape…”

– THE END –
“ Ava’s look of the day brought me back to my teen years, but with a contemporary touch. The combination of a jogger pant and Vans sneakers was quite unusual back in the days, but is quite common nowadays to mix different genres together.
It is also cute that is wearing a cat sweater, as I will learn after on set that she is very keen of them. Ava’s style reflects her personality on the day: effortless but chic, laid-back and fun. ”

PERCY DALTON’S PEANUTS
Fish Island is located south of the Hertford Union canal and is so called for some of its streets names; Dace Road is one of them.
In 1865 the Imperial Gas Light and Coke company bought 30 acres of land but then they sold the site and the present network of streets was laid out and filled with small houses and multi-storey factories.
Until the late 1990’s the Island’s largest employer was Percy Dalton’s famous Peanut Company.
After a number of vacant properties Fish Island fell into disrepair, the council permitted their conversion to live\work loft apartments
