Putting a spring in their step: Walthamstow’s celebrity mattress lookalikes

We’re all aware that fashion is driven by some fairly unusual influences. The fact that it’s considered socially acceptable (by quite a large proportion of people) to walk around Hoxton wearing the sort of outfit which, realistically, would pass as one of the costumes from Byker Grove, says something about London’s broad taste in clothing. But now, hold the phone, celebrities are basing their outfits on the mattresses which lounge around the streets of Walthamstow. In our opinion, this is taking it a bit far, but their attention to detail is so impressive that we look forward to seeing how the trend progresses. With a bit of luck, Gaga will get on it and turn up to something wearing an actual mattress salvaged from E17. Ashleigh Arnott
