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.

Entering a shop and trying on something woolly or fluffy is pretty much unthinkable. So how am I able to explain today’s choice? Let’s agree that this is a slip-up. Can we move on now?
