Vincent met Akiko Otterbourne-Wilde at the final show of the local punk band "Burnt Toast" at the notoriously run down East London pub The Olde Wolly Jumper. Between songs Akiko came over and asked Vincent about his outfit - he was wearing the Inazuma Club t-shirt ( a Japanese Krautrock band from Kobe)- and he fell in love with her, right on the spot. Both were heavily into Asian culture and so it was only natural that Vincent helped her open her own men's boutique "Mr. Yuniyoshi".
