The influence that street style has on the runway and fashion trends, is undeniable. The phenomenon is practically unrecognizable from what it was just a few years ago. I, personally, get some good inspiration from roaming the quality street style blogs where all the city's most fashionable residents show off their stylish wares. Allthough it is known for creative minds showing off the newest trends in a wearable way, "street style" has changed a lot for the last years. The fact that "real people" are now too purposely and unsubtle dressing for the cameras,  has become a self-aware rather than accidental culture. Even industry professionals have the need to be photographed as a confirmation that they still matter in the fashion industry; Anna Dello Russo recently told the Telegraph, “In the beginning [being photographed for street style] was a little embarrassing. But sometimes now I think: ‘Oh, if I do not get photographed I will be miserable’. Allthough some people take it too far, it habecome an established part of the fashion industry. Yet again, I find some capturing trends and unique styles I wanted to share with you. Enjoy!

One of my favorite Spring 2014 pieces are from the Versace show, which oozed on urban luxury. We saw flashy separates, skin grazing bra tops, tight trousers, alongside harness details, heavy hardware and loosely cut outerwear pieces. The Medusa Symbol was applied to almost every single piece. The collection had an overall Guns'n'Roses, Inner rock chick feeling, but with the classic Versace sex-appeal. There were a lots of black pieces, but the series of lilacs, baby blues and white mixed in, the pieces had a softer touch to it. The collection ended with a parade of evening gowns, with draped fabrics and deep slits, creating very feminine silhouettes.  Exquisite glamour is evident throughout, with exceptional tailoring, incredible detailing, and the richest textures, which makes the Versace pieces standout yet again.
Can't wait for the Pre-Fall collections!

With Fashion Week's Finale in Paris, we had the chance to take a look at the elegant women who have graced the streets with their impeccable winter looks. 
In the city renowned for its elegance and style, and at times, total sartorial madness, the street is the place to get inspired.
I saw a lot of statement coats, soaring heels and black&white passing the revue. Definitely a good sign for me, as black and whites are dominating my 'walk in closet' for this fall. 
Fashion Week is still a place with dominating overdressed peacocks, but I prefer the sophisticated looks with subtle creative details.  Like Ann Demeulemeester said after her show; “naturally eccentric, by which I mean a woman is eccentric by nature, from the inside; she doesn’t have to show it on the outside,” I couldn't agree more...
