Oh, the streets during fashion week. There’s so much being said about it and there always seems to be a discussion going on – is it street style or playing dress up for the photographers / how do we borrow style when we’re looking at borrowed stuff / why is everyone a photographer these days / and so on. I don’t think the discussions will end soon and there’s a lot of different viewpoints that all seem make sense in their own way, but however street style and fashion weeks might be changing, I do always get quite some inspiration from seeing what happens on the streets of NY, Milan, Paris and London during fashion week. True, there’s many pictures I skip and there’s obviously thousands of pictures published from the past few weeks of which only about 20 end up in my inspiration folder – but I do like just browsing through all those pictures sometimes as a source of inspiration and sometimes as a form of malicious delight (what was she thinking wearing THAT – and don’t tell me you’ve never thought that when looking at what other people are wearing). So anyway, I spent my Sunday night catching up on what happened in Milan and Paris in the past few weeks since I’ve been super busy working and hadn’t seen much of it, and above are the pictures that ended up in my FW SS14 inspiration folder. Sometimes it’s a strong look, sometimes it’s a small detail, and sometimes it’s just a pair of shoes I really really want (those black Stella boots in the 10th picture!). And then again, don’t we all need a little inspiration on Monday morning? I sure do. Happy Monday!
