OMG, More Street Style

We couldn't sit out couture's robust offering of ladies on duty looking off duty--no way.

Sorry, we just couldn’t help it. But doesn’t it seem like out of all the street style weeks we document, discuss and sometimes argue about, the street style that comes pending Couture Week offers the most robust variety of fashion–or at least our own warped perceptions of what fashion-at-a-fashion-show should look like–anyway?

Sometimes I think that the clothes circumventing the shows will be more formal than what we’d typically see. This speculation concerns me because the people in the photos, which obviously amount for the bodies wearing the clothes, are the show-goers–not to be confused with the runway models (give or take a leopard print coif), who, mind you, haven’t been dressing all that fittingly lately either.

Jeans? At couture? Shouldn’t she be in a full length, ball gown-sized skirt? No, dimwit! How will she get around like that? I can’t believe it has only taken one small slew of visuals from one small fashion week for me to forget how dramatically critics react to the aforementioned, unseasoned skirt. The thing is, I kind of want to see her in a full length, ball-gown sized skirt. So what do I make of that? (Other than, you know, selfish voyeurism.)

Now, we don’t mean to start any contentions or anything but in addition to and independent of the question above, we ask this: Tommy or Phil?

The photos watermarked Vogue at lower right hand corner are shot by Phil Oh, the unwatermarked versions are from Tommy Ton’s loot for Style.com. We’re pretty gripped by both (though holding some of their more similar shots up against each other as documented in the slideshow has proven pretty comical) but do you prefer some to the others? Why or why not? Did this 500 part question just iniquitously remind you of deceased college application and SAT-exam prompts? Someone, somewhere is writing about YOLO as we think.

I guess in the end we should just be happy all the photos exist, right? As Cher Horowitz once appropriately declared, “It’s like, the more the merrier!”

      Sadly I feel the same way after seeing pictures from my friends recent trips. I used to think there is no way that Euro women walked out like this on a regular basis but they really do. I love Carolines Mode and another street style blog.

    Great silhouettes and captures from both, though I’m more of a Phil fan.

    It seems as though Phil’s photos are more about the girl, Tommy’s are more about the fashion statement. I wouldn’t say one is better than the other. Sometimes I like to see a photo and think of that person and what they are experiencing. Sometimes I just want to see the juxtaposition of plaid with a beautiful metallic print.

    • Hudson Berry

      Well said.

  • Hudson Berry

    Phil Oh captured the fuck out of these young women. But Tommy Ton always manages to capture the special POV of his subjects, (see leopard print chignon and Ulyana Sergeenko’s short-haired twin rocking sailboats on le skirt).

    I believe Tommy has a special eye for detail and attitude while Phil is more focussed in the whole outfit, anyway, it´s nice to get both point of views on the same person/look/outfit.

    Sorry for my english, saying hi from Peru!

    Honestly, I think the accessory I like most in this whole array is Hanne Gaby’s midriff. I wish I could order one of those on yoox.

  • Alba B.

    Forever young, I want to see forever Tommy Ton, do you want to be Tonic, just follow Tommy Ton.

    Although my fav remains Annie Leibovitz, Richard Price and Testino.
    What about you do you have to chose only among Tommy & Phil when the see is full of fishotographers?

    In scandinavia people think jews have a very strange face, especially the nose is very bad-looking,kinda scythe-like they say, . They call it ” Ful nasa”. the word “ful” is pronounced like the english word “fuel”. i kind of feel sorry for them, but maybe its the testosterone.. i´ve heard it increases the tissues inside the nose, especially bone mass.

    It´s intresting to note that the hebrew work “nasa” can mean both “to marry” and “to lift” and “to desire” among many other verbs..

    Maybe Tommy’s photos have more of a journalistic feel as they’re also documenting the vibe of the place/moment.

    I just wished more street fashion/style blogs differentiated what was photographed during fashion weeks and what was shot on a normal day.

    During fashion weeks, people dress up with “up” emphasised. But those shots aren’t really “street” compared to photographs of people who live and commute day-to-day in a certain place.

    If this goes on, the idea of what is street style will eventually be skewed to that of what is worn during fashion weeks.

    Tommy
    epitomizes 2013 street fashion. He captures more than the women, but what is
    also happening around her and quite masterfully I might add.
