Hey, gidday mates! I’m a sucker for street style photography, it’s where I (and quite possibly you) pick up the vast majority of my outfit inspiration. But despite the fact that it’s women’s season right now, I’ve still been trawling through the slideshows to see what style takeaways I can glean from the ladies. And rest assured, there are a ton; even for us boys. My three favorites: 1. Stonewash denim (always good). 2. Hoodies layered under heavier jackets. 3. A pop of red. In other words, American sportswear references are huge right now. The good news is that you can replicate it at home with a Champion hoodie and a second hand pair of Levi’s, or you can drop insane cash on Vetements, whatever works. But whether you wear them separately or altogether like my new favorite dresser Chiara Capitani (above), they will not let you down. God bless America! More below.Click to Continue!
Team #Menswear is on the homestretch here in Paris, but for some of the traveling fashion circus, the real tour hasn’t even started yet. Beginning with London Collections: Men on January the 8th, and ending with the Paris women’s shows on March the 9th, the first two months of the year are particularly grueling for the street style photographers, who spend long days outside in the elements, and long nights inside editing their work. Melodie Jeng is one of the few female photographers who does the entire stretch (all 10 fashion weeks), for a range of clients including Vogue, models.com, Barney’s New York, Saks Fifth Ave, New York Magazine, and more. Over the last few seasons I’ve interviewed almost all of the top male photographers, so I thought it was about time I spoke with one of the most successful females. The following is a conversation with Melodie Jeng.Click to Continue!
When it comes to the men’s fashion extravaganzas, my favorite weeks are Milan and Paris, hands down. But for street style photography, you really can’t beat what goes on in Florence at Pitti Uomo. I’m watching from afar this season, and speaking from experience having attended the world’s largest menswear trade show five or six times, it’s almost better seeing the highlight reel on your favorite publication’s website; kinda like watching a game on TV with the expert commentary. Style takeaways thus far include big texture, high-waisted pants, all things 1970s, monochrome, the clash of tailoring and sportswear, and as always, exciting pops of color. I’m about to head out to the airport — Jenny and I are flying to Milan in T-minus five hours. Ciao bella!Click to Continue!
Few things excite me more than good things happening to good people, and Dan Roberts is most definitely good people. The New Zealand-born, Australia-living streetstyle photographer is on a fast-track to success — in his first international fashion week season he shot exclusively for his blog, in his third season he started shooting for Elle USA, and now in his fifth season, he’s shooting all the streetstyle for Vogue Paris. He just flew into New York for the women’s shows, and I caught up with him to find out just how he landed the French whale, what shooting for Vogue Paris has taught him, and what he thinks of people who say that streetstyle, as a movement, is dead:Click to Continue!
Hey, gidday mates. The title of this blog post is somewhat misleading, I’ll admit, but let me explain. Back in June during the men’s fashion weeks in Europe, I went along to the No21 by Alessandro Dell’Acqua show, and everybody who was working that show (from the models to the ushers) was wearing one of these T-shirts. I begged the PR team to give me one, and a week or so after I arrived back in NYC, a parcel showed up with this inside. I’m obsessed. Not only is it a striking visual image, but it’s the fashion show equivalent to your favourite band’s tour T-shirt. Been there, done that, bought the T-shirt. Literally.Click to Continue!
