Anyone I’m drawn to shoot usually reads two words in my head: effortless edge.
It’s usually high/low basics that got mixed in a way that looks as if it took them 5 minutes tops to get dressed. Men or women.
I loved how the woman in the first photo paired an inexpensive utility bag with her corset camo trench coat. Print mixing that worked. The guy in the second shot above has been stuck in my head since the first time I saw him months ago for that very reason – effortless. Same thing with the couple outside Beacons Closet (stock up on vintage there if you haven’t already). How cool do they both look in vintage? Personally I’d want to wear both that couple’s looks.
Samsung is giving away a Galaxy Note II to anyone who can also pull off the not ‘try too hard’ vibe here plus win the smartphone at the same time.
With fashion week just around the corner, this is what I’ll be most looking out for.
