Mixing fabrics on Astor Place - a panel of plaid.
I shot this after NYFW. I’m not in love with it but I’m intrigued. It’s more much subtle than the flashy mixing and matching of prints outside the tents. I feel like it’s truer “street style” - trickled down from the fashion show runway to the unofficial runway/red carpet/street style hullaballoo outside the tents to a random person I encountered. Maybe they work in fashion, maybe they follow fashion, but who knows. This just clicked with me. I’ve got some exciting photos coming up!
PS: I see people do this a lot downtown with flannel plaid shirts, they wrap it around their waist and layer. It’s a lot more casual and downtown grungy. I didn’t go out much this weekend and then went out the other day and remembered how young and downtown my neighborhood - I saw so many remnants of the punk and rock in roll (now hipster-esque) age on St. Mark’s.
