Street style photography has massively changed over the last years, so much in fact that it has led to an outcry of Suzy Menkes (remember her famous article?). Following fashion week equals still having a look at street style shots for me. However…

Issue n°1: There is probably some kind of saturation that has crept in overtime. The captured outfits lead rather to a yawn than to an inspiring moment.
Issue n°2: A colour explosion topped by futurustic elements and a bouquet of flowers means my attention, but attention does not necessarily equal interest.
Issue n°3:  Most of the looks seem by now far from being genuine and authentic but either an outcry for attention (see issue n°2) or an literal extension from the runway. Minus the overall vision of the designer and the show aspect that goes with it.

Sometimes, though, I come across pictures like the ones showed above. Pretty nice examples of how to style a sneaker if you ask me. Rather simple and yet more than enough to get me thinking what I like about them…

This leather jacket is worth mentioning. One because of its colour, since we all have seen a lot of different shades of brown by now and yet that particular shade is just perfect. Two because of its cut and shape, since the sleeves are worth a second look, yet the overall impression remains flattering. I think that the designer’s decisions not to go overboard with details and to keep the jacket short are both very smart, since those seem to provide balance to the end result.
