Fashion month is finally over and despite not getting off my couch for even a second this whole time, I’m exhausted. But luckily it all ends with Paris so we are left with lots and lots of Balenciaga and Céline in our minds, to keep it going for the months to come. My one trend takeaway from the whole thing though: if you ever bought two different colors of the same shoe just because you like it so much and have always felt guilty, now is your time to flaunt both of them at the same time with no guilt. For more inspiration (because we won’t be getting a new batch of street style looks until June) here are my favorite 90 looks from Paris Fashion Week.
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!
Please let me know if it had the same effect on you as it did on me but ever since the beginning of Paris Fashion Week with fantastic street style looks and even more amazing collections (such as Céline, Louis Vuitton, Jacquemus, Balenciaga etc), I’ve been shopping (and therefore selling) more than ever. I felt the immediate need to update my entire – too classic, too minimal, too comfortable – wardrobe and get plaid jackets, long sleeved sweaters, heeled boots, stirrup trousers (yep, they’re back), asymmetrical skirts as far as the eye can see and basically anything metallic or knit that will help me layer the shit out of my clothes. Anyways here are 130 of the best looks from PFW streets because if I’m going down, I’m taking everybody with me.
For many people Paris is the most beautiful city in the world because of it’s architecture, culture and history but for me its fashion, more so the style of the city itself is one of the main reasons Paris stands above everywhere else in the world. Without the fashion weeks it has the utmost laid back vibe where everyone looks effortless but during fashion weeks the whole city swings into high gear with outfits that look so simple yet well-thought, hiding the charm in the details. Here are the final batch of Menswear Fashion Week street style looks with 65 of my favorite looks from Paris.
This season will be remembered, more than anything, as the season of the street style. No, it’s not the first time people dressed up for the cameras, not the first time bloggers flooded the shows (or at least the entrance of the shows) nor the first time people cared more about street style more than (some) runway shows but this was the season the power of streets was finally confirmed commercially and creatively. The most buzzed about and celebrated collections of the season were Vetements and Balenciaga, both in the hands of the same creative director, both all about the “streets”. Things finally turned the other way around, from streets to runways, now it’s time to wait for the next thing and meanwhile enjoy this new era, starting with the (many, many) best street style looks from Paris Fashion Week.
