    ‘Street’ style at Paris fashion week seems to be, unsuprisingly, more sober, thought through, and refined than in any other cities. What’s funny though is that it’s the same people attending all the major fashion weeks, but they seem to adapt their style to their idea of what fashion should be like in a particular city.

      Definitely agreed. I think that’s what makes the whole process so interested though…fashion is just a series of adaptations to either fit in or stand out. How people choose to express that is always fascinating.

    As you can see socks rule :)

    • Martin

      September 27, 2012 at 11:05 am

      yes, unfortunately… in my opinion socks/anklets ALWAYS look cheap, very cheap… and ridiculous… I have never ever seen a combo of that sort looking chic or flattering… hey girls, wake up and consider this as a no-go :-)

      • Remy

        September 27, 2012 at 12:28 pm

        I agree with you. Socks are horrible.

          I dunno – I remember this fondly from the first time I saw it in discos in the late 70′s. Princess Di did it too, and it was really cute…

    I really love the total black look with the long skirt!

    Hot women in white pants after Labor Day, fuzzy dice on purses, slits on dresses revealing toned legs in ankle boots–it’s all here. And we come here to see it all.

    That first picture is simply AMAZING! Such power and yet it manages to still be feminine despite the masculine look. Love it! I particularly love that it’s not a full suit, but separates. And her hair! Her pinky ring! Her brogues! Unbelievably good!

    Thoroughly enjoying your many pictures from Milan. Thank you for posting them in groups.


    • cristi

      September 28, 2012 at 9:28 am

      I couldn’t agree more! I absolutely love the androginous look on her. Although I would’ve worn some nice socks with that shoes.

    The last photo is my favourite, I adore animals :)

    Why haven’t I got those eyes? Elegant, androgynous style. You captured an intense expression.

    I like the bag placed in 2nd photo. Amazing!
    For a new trend, i have seen some uniqe bags around like handcrafted brand Luxsaccus. It seems little expensive but totaly different! Although I havent heard about it before, it seems glamour as i have reviewed at my friend’s hand.

    September 27, 2012 at 10:33 am

    I love the androgyny in the first picture. And such a sweet moment captured in the last photo – dogs bring such happiness!

      Ladies Monk shoes very similar to those are made by Dune.

    I love the blue eyes and the ring of the first picture. Great style. The two women bring into my mind Gertrude Stein and Alice B.Toklas.

    First photo: is that the Italian version of “Pat” from SNL in the 80s?

    That watch in the 2nd photo I neeeeeeeeeed, but not even it could save that overall baglady look.

    The first shot is just a little too ‘girls in drag’ for my tastes but all power to you for finding these girls.

    I’m actually loving the socks and heels combo.. they might look cheap outside of an on-trend context, I suppose, but if you know better, they’re so odd and DGAF.

    I started warming up to them during the Milan street shots, I suppose! Now to try and rock that look in my little Southern city..
