TAKE MY PICTURE from GARAGE Magazine on Vimeo.

Garage Magazine put together this fantastic video which examines the explosion in popularity of streetstyle photography in recent years. The video takes on the topic from both the perspective of both veteran fashion editors and street style ‘stars’.  In it key fashion figures from Tim Blanks, Phi Oh, Suzie Bubble, Jack and Lazaro of Proenza Schouler weigh in on the topic.  This well-edited piece is well worth a watch for anyone who is looking for insight and an insider perspective on streetstyle’s role in the modern fashion.

There has been a backlash against the heavily peacocked personal style bloggers , most notably with Suzy Menke’s T Magazine article ‘The Circus of Fashion’ . In my opinion streetstyle has cemented itself as a key component of fashion coverage but much like anything else, it comes down to execution and taste.

Are you for or against the proliferation of street style coverage? Sound off in the comments section.

I’m constantly inspired by the style of strangers on the streets of New York. But when I’m online I like to take a look at what’s occurring in far off lands and Japanese streetstyle has long been my favorite. I would say that Japanese streetstyle blogs really emphasize brand-mixing and celebrating a personalized look. Here are some of my favorite looks from the Japanese streetstyle blog Style Arena.

Here are some of my November streetstyle picks from Harajuku, Ginza, Daikanyama, and Shibuya.

Yuki Ikeda

Hunting jacket: JUNYA WATANABE COMME des GARÇONS MAN
Shirt: SLACK
Sarrouel Pants: GANRYU
Loafers: Hender Scheme × HARUTA
Bag: Hender Scheme

A very Junya-esque look worn with a lot of confidence. The proportions and lines are clean and the pants are drop-crotch without being extreme. Casual and effortless and the all khaki is a good contrast to the indigo shirt below.

Paz

Trench Coat: COMME des GARÇONS HOMME PLUS
Shirt: COMME des GARÇONS
Handbag: Ungaro

Paz is wearing a men’s jacket and owning it. This pattern isn’t easy to pull off but the color on the dress and shoes help tone down how eye-catching it is.  This fit is better than the sum of it’s parts and to me that indicates great personal style.

Mayumi Kaneko

Chester Coat: URBAN RESEARCH
Loafers: URBAN RESEARCH
Tote Bag: MARC BY MARC JACOBS

A nice languid fit that’s broken up by the cropped patterned trousers and cropped coat sleeves. A simple fit but the looseness of the clothes puts a really nice drape. Doesn’t hurt that this beezy has such a great haircut either.

Yamazoe

Chester Coat: JOHN LAWRENCE SULLIVAN
Shirt: JOHN LAWRENCE SULLIVAN
Slacks: JOHN LAWRENCE SULLIVAN
Scarves: BALMAIN
Sneakers: VANS
Socks: UNIQLO
Tote Bag: YOHJI YAMAMOTO

The vans in this fit tone down a luxe look with mostly John Lawrence Sullivan. I like that the chesterfield does not look too dressy here and instead gives more of a youthful vibe. The slacks fit perfect but the purple socks put this one over the top.

Shinya

Coat: COMME des GARCONS
Jacket work: COMME des GARCONS
Shirt: COMME des GARCONS
Pants skinny: banal Chic Bizarre
Glasses: MYKITA
Sneakers: Y-3

Shinya is pulling off three difficult things here: orange hair, black and navy and layering a jacket underneath a coat. For that he deserves props. Before you attempt this look make sure your swag is up to pair, self-doubt will be your downfall.
