There’s one mystery I can’t seem to resolve about fashion and cities: when I was living in Milan 6 years ago, I hated the way people dressed on the streets. I wasn’t inspired by anyone, I couldn’t even find 5 people to shoot as an assignment for the school. Then I visited my best friend in London for 3 days and I lost my mind, especially around Portobello Market, I wanted to personally thank people for being so stylish and inspiring. From that moment on London became “the” fashion city in my mind with a natural and unique sense of style. The thing I can’t understand is the fashion week street style scene of London when that creativity disappears completely and turns into Oxford Circus at night if it wasn’t for some of the A-list bloggers and editors. Either the actual London folk hide away from fashion people or the photographers don’t know what to take photos of because I refuse to believe London got boring. Anyways, I could fish out 65 good looks from …
Started off as a boring one but made the ending with some splash (and dreadlocks on white girls, and floral dresses, and sequins, and gold shoes and looots and lots of Vans sneakers that makes this fashion week somewhat relatable) New York Fashion Week hence the street style that comes with it is over as of today. Throughout these 7 days I saved around 450 photos of street style and managed to narrow it down to 120 best looks in case you are as tired as me jumping through one website/instagram account to the other just to catch up. Enjoy, take some rest before the London craze starts oh and one more thing, IS EVERYONE PREGNANT NOW?
There are two things I never forget/neglect doing even when on the zennest of vacations: putting on sunscreen and following fashion week street styles. I’ve given myself a break from everything else these two weeks, in Turkey with my friends at weddings and with my family at the seaside, but I simply can’t ignore the street style scene of Stockholm Fashion Week, always serving perfect inspiration right before fall shopping sessions and fashion month. Thank you beautiful Scandis for always being this cool.
I have a (bucket) list of cities I want to visit since 2010 that I’m trying my best to cross off as I age and I have another list of cities which are trying their best to make me go nuts as I postpone visiting. Where they overlap? Copenhagen. Besides every other wonderful thing I’ve heard about the Danish capital, the fashion scene is getting more insane every single year. Sure, my inferiority complex would reach its peek (both figuratively and literally, a 5’3″ girl doesn’t stand a chance in Scandinavia) but I’m willing to risk therapy after seeing all these amazing street style looks from Copenhagen Fashion Week.
Every fashion week has its own “thing”, just like how every other city has its own, and for me couture fashion week is the most widely inspirational in terms of street style. I can hear you telling me to make my mind and decide if I like menswear street style better more or this, and I can’t lie but admit that menswear inspires me more on a daily basis, but the couture fashion week street style gives me tips on how to dress where I’m most uncomfortable and least inspired getting dressed for: fancy events, night outs, weddings where you don’t want to look like a prom queen etc. Looking chic whilst maintaining your cool is a hard task so here’s to women who had done one heck of a job with it.
