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.
