WHY STREET STYLE IS SO IMPORTANT FOR FASHION…
Street style is about much more than creatively starved art students who’ve clearly spent hours in front of the mirror practising the obligatory pretentious ‘Street Style Pose’, which usually entails standing on one leg like a contrived flamingo and avoiding looking into the camera so as to create a sense of ‘sprezzatura‘.
Is an essential force that drives both the high fashion industry and high street trends. More importantly, when done correctly, it can be an art form in itself – reflecting the complex relationship between the world of aesthetics and the real world.
Street style is much more than a means to an end for art school drop outs and aspiring fashion photographers. It’s a glimpse into the complex relationship between fashion and history, heritage and humanity.
