Street Style Recap: Wednesday, November 18th 2009:

Munsoo Kwon in Seoul for fashion week. I don't wear a lot of black, but if I did, I'd try to dress like Munsoo. The black jacket is from Japanese brand N HOOLYWOOD (not sure exactly why its spelled like that...) over a white DAMIR DOMA t-shirt over another black asymmetric t-shirt, with black COMME DES GARCONS drop crotch pants with a black KENZO leather bag and shoes from SWEAR.

Next is UK television presenter Jameela Jamil in a silver sequined JULIEN MACDONALD dress, then Neri in Tokyo with a grey textured BEAMS cardigan over a blue plaid shirt with MUJI shorts and CONVERSE shoes, then a girl in ROMANCE WAS BORN fringe dress, then a pair of New Yorkers -- one in a pink jacket over a floral dress and a woman with a nice crisp white shirt and a really nice bicycle.

Fred Perry Centenary Party -- That's 100 Years, Y'all! :


World Champion, Judah Friedlander was on hand to celebrate the 100 year anniversary of
FRED PERRY at SPIN, a table tennis club in NYC. I guess it sorta makes sense, you know, Fred Perry... Tennis... And renting out Arthur Ashe centre court would have been a bit much... So yeah, they flew in The Friendly Fires to play a 6'ish song set. I hadn't heard them before, but I had sorta, in a way, since there were moments when I expected to hear a shriek of "SISTERRR SAVIOURRRR!!". I'm sure I'm not the first person to mention that, and I totally don't mean it as a criticism since I love The Rapture, but anyway, yeah. They were cute and fun though.

Also, Fred Perry had a bunch of installations of its style thru the decades and branded ping-pong tables, and a special (cocaine themed?) mirrored ones in the Fred Perry backroom. Oh, and Fred Perry swizzle sticks for the mixed drinks! Gin and tonics might have made more sense than margaritas, but hey, can't complain too much.


Street Style Recap: Monday, November 16th 2009:

You've seen this photo on other blogs as well, but here's Vanessa Traina at the GIVENCHY show in Paris in the couture heels and the silver crown thingy. She kinda looks like a ghost, I think? A wealthy pretty ghost though, or something like that...

And then one of the designers from JAIDEN JAMES in London, then NYC's Becka Diamond (see her feature in today's Refinery29) in a THAKOON dress with ALAIA heels over a pair of knee-high RICK OWENS socks (I didn't know he made socks?) with a BALENCIAGA bag, Hyun Do Lee in a VINTAGE colorblock windbreaker with UNIQLO pants and DR MARTENS, Vika at Marc by Marc with a black dress and a STELLA MCCARTNEY bag, and a lady at the Chicago Zara opening party in all ZARA.

Street Style Recap: Tuesday, November 10th 2009:

From his good looks, and what appears to be a model book cradled in his arm, here's what I'm assuming is a male model, in Paris. Love the vest and I like the black drop crotch pants tucked into the boots. Wish I found out who made everything, but he seemed not too interested in talking. Next time.

Ece Sukan from Vogue Turkey in a great sequined floral top with a short skirt, singer Ciara (i think?) in NYC in a blue slit/clut-out dress with CHRISTIAN LOUBOUTIN heels, Teen Vogue's Sarah Kuhn in a black lace top with leather shorts, black SEYCHELLES shoes and a CHANEL bag, Byung Sun Choi in Seoul with a plaid scarf, red shoes, and the jacket and pants by Danish designer HENRIK VIBSKOV, then Mister Mort at Pool in a DOCKERS suit with a BROOKS BROTHERS shirt and a self-made bowtie and LL BEAN shoes.

Street Style Recap, Monday, November 9th 2009:

Here's a relatively simple look from Kojin in Tokyo, but I really like the EMPORIO ARMANI polka dot scarf tucked into the maroon MARTIN MARGIELA sweater. By the way, I just got a maroon Afghan'y cardigan from the Margiela sample sale -- 220 West 19th Street NYC -- ends Saturday... Also love his bag...

Also, another photo of Jane Keltner, this time in a grey t-shirt with a JASON WU skirt and a black PROENZA SCHOULER bag, then a woman in a red plaid MARC BY MARC JACOBS dress, then Raquel a buyer for TSUM Russia in a black BALENCIAGA leather jacket over a white ALEXANDER WANG dress with the coveted black BALMAIN boots and a giant CHANEL bag, then Daisuke in Seoul with a grey suit/shorts combo from TOPMAN over a COMME DES GARCONS shirt, and finally Alexandra Ben-Guerion in a blue ELIE TAHARI coat over a pink AMERICAN APPAREL tank with wide baggy pants and LANVIN heels.
