Despite being the least favorite fashion week of many – and therefore the one that’s taken the least seriously by fashion industry – London Fashion Week always manages to deliver with the street style thanks to big European guns like Camille Charriere, Lucy Williams, Pandora Sykes, Hedvig Opshaug and so on. It was a breath of fresh (and hot) air after frigid NYC and a subtle and quotidian transition to Milan and color/print extravaganza, with so many seasonal and next-seasonal inspirational looks. Here are my 75 favorite street style looks from LFW…
Fashion weeks usually make me really happy, despite all the “circus” leading up to fights between bloggers and editors (that I find really, really lame of editors btw), I look forward to fresh inspiration from runways and streets. However this time New York Fashion Week kind of made me sad when I saw all these amazing women looking just as fine even during horrible winter conditions, something which I always claim is the reason why I look like crap in winter. Apparently it’s not winter, it’s me. Here’s hoping these 100 best looks from NYFW starring Ramya Giangola and Jan Michael Quammie will light a fire in me.
Normally I find the fashion calendar deeply disappointing every year in the sense that couture week comes after menswear fashion weeks – street style vise – because I don’t like the transition from real street looks of natural menswear styling to over the top couturesque looks. However this year Demna Gvasalia effect was so dominant even the couture week streets were filled with puffer jackets. In fact puffer jackets were all there is, to a point of absurdity, but no complaints here.
I may have been away from the blog for a while for personal reasons (mixed with “I can’t pose under this winter conditions anymore” feelings – though you can still follow my daily looks on Instagram) but don’t think for a second that I’m away from my laptop, the internet or the fashion world in general. Since I’m nuts about menswear and especially menswear styling (hint: oversized stuff and layering magic), I have been religiously following menswear fashion weeks (London, Milan and Paris) and that of course includes the street style scenes from the shows. My favorite looks from 3 cities ahead, both men and women, all in one place!
I may not be around as much as I used to and publish a post every single day like before but don’t you think for a single second that I gave up street style, or spending hours online checking out fashion weeks. Street style is my drug – let it be Pinterest boards, style blogs or fashion week snaps, I can’t live without it. And I can’t not share it with you, especially now that I have so many beautiful looks stored from around the world: best of Moscow, Kiev, Seoul and Tbilisi fashion weeks ladies and gentlemen.
