Street Style (Part 2)

Some more street style around the globe as promised. I often find the uniqueness of an outfit to be so inviting.  Yes, I do stare and gawk like a kid at Willy Wonka’s Chocolate Factory.   The more vintage an item, the more I find it to have a personal value and, a world of sentiment.  I like the sense of an item being so rare, or personalized, to the point where it ceases to resemble it’s initial birth.  This, uniqueness,  gives me a sense of everyone being able to enjoy fashion without becoming boring cookie-cuter dressers.  Check some of  them out:

The gentleman meets vintage mixes.

I have to admit. I love accessories to an outfit. It’s a layered look all by itself.

Accessories girl.

Liking the ripped effect coupled with the classic coat down to the metallic shoes. It’s like a mixing era.

Disco queen meets modern chic.

We, at The Fashion Records, adore Iman. I like the wedge shoe to the leather wedge heel. I haven’t been crazy about the ripped tights look for awhile though.

Awesome that Edward Norton bought some Masai Warriors over, as guests at his house in Greenwich Village. They came over to run a marathon for a Masai fundraiser. While in New York, these fearless warriors browsed the streets in their vibrant gear. Talk about re-defining street style!

A fashionable girl in Dakar. I like the colors with the strapped sandals and simple jewelery.

Showing a mixture of retro colors. I like.

Milan fashion is totally rampant.

Wearing daring colors from head to toe. Likely risk taker and owner of his own style!

Street style with attitude.

Reminds me of what I would see in a old Brooklyn fashion book. Very characterized and, individualized. Loving the graphic tees.

Long live colors and character!

That’s right. Well-dressed gentlemen get their photos taken. Check out that styled, retro, men’s satchel. Major bag envy. Check out a similar one: Filson Field Satchel.

Paris men have great style. I want that bag.

Check our some New York splash of colors:

This to me was an excellent 2009 cover that reveals Edward Enninful’s, the Fashion Director, reaching to the depths of his creative mastermind. The four girls look great drenched in colors from the 90’s and shot by the talented photographer Emma Summerton. These ladies were truly captured in their best for the September 2009 cover. This is to those who couldn’t get their hands on this magazine.

Chanel Iman and Jordan Richardson

Chanel Iman looks bit like Jordan Richardson’s twinie. I think that Chanel Iman looks more waif-like than Jordan. I don’t know you be the judge. But here it is: Both are making huge splashes as fashions newest fresh-faced accessories.

So where would my votes go? Both are lovely but, Jordan is more realistic and still fit as a model. Chanel is cute but in a waifish way. I guess the model industry digs that.
