Incredible Street Style Straight From Paris
As Paris kicks off with incredible fashions for Spring 2013 the streets are no less a fashion show. Relish in the photos that follow which relay the sidewalk style through the thousands of tourists and locals that frequent fashion week in Paris.
While cameras flash in studios and in the photo pit, there is a whole separate show going on where lens meets street, city, and sky. This fashion show celebrates not modes or stylists but the beauty that can be seen in the face of passerby’s and their unique style that represents who they are. Many of the most influential street style models are nobody anybody knows and are never heard from again. They go about their daily lives without the paparazzi following them… that is, until another photog spots them on the street.
Even in the case of the most stylish women and men in Paris, the chance that they would be photographed again is super rare. Not only that but if that did happen it wouldn’t be by the same photographer which would result in a completely different photo altogether. Also, the model (or random inspiration) wouldn’t be wearing the same thing twice with the exact same accessories nor would they be in the same location. So basically a street style shot is a moment in time where beauty exists in the eye of the beholder and those who share it.
With this exciting world class fashion week half over the shots coming out of Paris are living up to the hype of Raf Simons designing for Dior, Gareth Pugh designing an uplifting collection, and Balenciaga looking fiercer than usual with their scalloped black and white pieces. Speaking of fierce check out this ladies exploded houndstooth wool outerwear piece and her McQueen runway shoes! She pulls off high fashion very well. Photo from Fashionologie.
