As the street style scene grows more event-centred and less an expression of creative and stylish people going about their daily lives, the ensembles we see outside of international fashion weeks have also become more monotonous, less inventive, and just another way for the wealthy elite to show off what their money and influence can buy/borrow.
More and more, I look to farther, less-touched-by-Anna-Dello-Russo locales for street style inspiration. Forget New York, Paris, Milan. I’m more interested in how fashion editors from Australia, Japan, and South Korea choose to express themselves with their clothes. With recent fashion weeks taking place in Seoul, Tokyo, and now Sydney, I was excited to feast my eyes on outfits that haven’t already been published in the Trend Report section of Vogue, or taken straight off the runways of Milan.
