Once again we’re hopping around the world in a matter of seconds to seek inspiration from the denizens of cities we have visited and those we would like to visit. The Internet definitely pushes globalization along whether we like it or not, but one good outcome is access to inspiration we would never know otherwise. From Japan to Canada, there’s a world of stylish people breaking the mould and setting trends.
New York, USA via Mr. Newton Menswear pieces are given an extra edge with a neon yellow cardigan which could have been ripped off of many a Spring 2010 runway. Neon will be popular this spring.
Vancouver, Canada via The Eyeline The Eyeline is fairly new to the street fashion blogsphere, but is already offering up a lot of inspiration. This young lady wears a very on-trend Native American inspired jacket like that oh-so-popular Opening Ceremony coat everyone was coveting. This particular coat was inherited from the girl’s mother, proof yet again that fashion is cyclical.
Tokyo, Japan via Drop Snap I really like the rich tones and textures that went into this look. The young lady built her outfit around a single color, but between all the layers and rich accents it almost doesn’t seem monochromatic. Clearly, Japanese street fashion is not a single style or category, but it is nearly always chic.
Helsinki, Finland via Hel-Looks The combination of the rich blue with the olive green gloves really pops in this ensemble. Another reason to love Hel-looks is that the photographer always interviews the people photographed; so, now we can know that her coat is vintage and that she loves to acquire new pieces for her wardrobe when she travels. I couldn’t be in more agreement: forget traditional souvenirs, buy a bag or dress that when someone asks you can answer, “I bought this when I was off adventuring through…”
I’m always on the hunt for new street fashion sites to showcase here, so let me know your favorite sites to visit!
