Street Style Page 1
Forever 21 has launched its own street style blog, the cleverly titled 21st Street, which is essentially just another shopping platform. We feel pretty much the same about this blog as we do the fast fashion conglomerate as a whole.
With Memorial Day only days away, we can officially welcome Summer — and all the sundresses, sandals, and denim cutoffs that come with it. We’re looking to a whole new dress code to inspire us on the breeziest — and even the stickiest — Summer days. Consider this your jumping-off point for your most stylish season yet, and start clicking through now.
We’ve always been a fan of Carlyne Cerf de Dudzeele’s work for Vogue and V, among others, but our admiration turned into an obsession when we saw her in the HBO documentary In Vogue: The Editor’s Eye. Naturally, her words carry a lof of weight to us.
No matter where you stand on the whole black crow vs. peacock issue, there’s no doubt that street style stars have become a hot commodity for brands. Case in point: former Harper’s Bazaar Russia editor-turned-street style star Miroslava Duma just landed a campaign for ironically named French label American Retro.
Anna Dello Russo is easily one of the most photographed editors during fashion week — or, for that matter, ever. But that wasn’t always the case.
In what is either the next frontier in street style or a lawsuit waiting to happen, four enterprising Brooklyn-dwellers have created Streetblaster, “Williamsburg’s premier live fashion blog,” which auto-posts pictures of passerby snapped by a motion-detecting camera in the window of their apartment.
Street style star Anna Dello Russo is just as weird about getting her picture taken as we are. Who knew?
And we totally agree with them.
One day in, and we already have a pretty good sense of what people will be wearing off the runway this show season.
We’ll admit it: we get a (not-so-small) thrill whenever we’re stopped by a street style photographer. It doesn’t really matter if we’ve heard of them or not, it’s nice to be noticed, you know? (Unless said photog is BILL CUNNINGHAM. That’s a different story entirely.) And that is why the latest video from SRSLY is too perfect.
The chic looks seen at this week’s Tel Aviv Fashion Week extended far beyond the runway, with stylish Israelis and international showgoers turning it out in their most fashionable frocks.
Harper’s Bazaar‘s Senior Fashion Market Editor Joanna Hillman (we know, long title, can you imagine what her business cards must look like?) is tired of seeing people dressed like clowns — or worse, trend seekers.
Believe it or not, there once was a time when blogging was nothing but a hobby, something people did in their spare time because they were particularly interested in a subject or needed an outlet for their creative output. Now, bloggers like BryanBoy make over a $100,000 a year, 14-year-olds get profiled by The New Yorker, and street style photographers earn some serious cash for catching the right sartorial snap at the right time.
Before there was Bill Cunningham and Scott Schuman, there was… Vivian Maier? The world’s love affair with street style photography is well documented, but one of its most talented figures was all but undiscovered until a few years ago.
Every morning when I get dressed, I wonder if my outfit would be Bill Cunningham-approved. And I am certainly not the only one.
Meet Volcom’s new denim designer, Jennifer Herrema. She fronts a rock band called RTX, and formerly fronted The Royal Trucks, is aviators-obsessed, grew up in D.C.’s skate culture, and owns more animal tails than Davy Crockett.
On the anniversary of American history’s finest milestone, we can’t help but remind ourselves of a privilege — context depending, of course — we often take for granted: freedom. While we sip our Diet Cokes, listen to our Last.fm players, and write fashion-related pieces for this very site, we are walking the beaten path of fashion’s history of freedom.
Put a picture of Karl Lagerfeld on something, and you can pretty much guarantee it will be come the next, very large, great big thing. From the Karl mask bags to t-shirts, this stuff sells. And now you can add a little value to your neckline with a metal rendition of his iconic face.
There are millions of sites in the blogosphere and let’s face it, you don’t have time to read them all. Lucky for you (and us!), we’ve found someone who does, and she’s going to be sharing a few with you each week. Think of them as blogs to know, Twitter users to follow, online stores to shop at — and so much more! If you’re looking to expand your blogroll or source from the best content on the web, Hillary Frazier is your girl!
