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.
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.
I’m usually not that good with noticing details in a pile of “something” at first glance, I know what I like and don’t like but that’s pretty much it, which results in me having to check that said “something” over and over again with %110 attention to figure out styling tricks, accessories, lengths etc. Though that was not the case this time, probably because it was so dominant and obvious, sequin pieces put together with casual everyday clothing is like a much too literal yet ironic representation of “street style at a couture week”. Especially Miroslava Duma and Yasmin Sewell’s sequin & oversized blazer combos gave me serious style chills, making me dig up old photos for inspiration too. Here are my picks for the best everyday sequin looks, and a butt load of inspiration for how to wear them.
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.
