Here's my pal Mia Veur, buyer for Melbourne shop Left, on her lunch break with a little bit of an Amish thing going on. It's mostly VINTAGE but a black and white COMME DES GARCONS skirt.

Next is Louise Dutoit, also just featured on Garance's website, in an awesome painted ACNE leather jacket with ACNE pants and the super-coveted ACNE wedges with mirrored platform. She works for Acne, in case you were wondering... Then Greta at the Y-3 show in a black CLUB MONACO dress with a cute bow thing, black mummy'ish TORY BURCH boots and a brown BALENCIAGA bag, a woman in Paris with a grey sequined/rosetted skirt with GIVENCHY heels and a CHANEL bag, Kiryeong Han in Seoul with a black RAF SIMONS jacket and a grey BUCKLER hood with black KSUBI shorts and white AMERICAN APPAREL leggings and finally Fabiola Figueroa in a ZARA jacket with animal print drop crotch pants and NINE WEST shoes.

(I got two...)

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.

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.

Here's London'er Aisha Speirs in NYC (she's an editor at Surface Magazine here) in a VINTAGE pink quilted jacket over a black tank top, with wide-legged ZUCCA pants. I don't think I've ever seen wide legged pants that wide before... And with a polka dot COMME DES GARCONS bag and black FERRAGAMO shoes. Speaking of Surface Mag... I'm in this month's issue along with pal KENZO MINAMI. Pick up an issue if you want to see a picture of me looking a bit confused.

Then Leigh Lezark in London with a blue tartan dress. Also in NYC is a dude with a white blazer grey rolled up pants, and a LOUIS VUITTON bag, then another girl wearing all COMME DES GARCONS, then Camilla with a black STEPHAN SCHNEIDER shirt, a black MARTIN MARGIELA bag, and a strap'y pair of sandals, then Marija in Sydney with a black and white striped KIRRILY JOHNSTON cardigan over a STELLA MCCARTNEY swimsuit, black TRASH & VAUDEVILLE boots, and also a bag from MAISON MARTIN MARGIELA.

I ran into i-D Magazine's Erika Kurihara on the street in Tokyo. I was there street-peeping, and she was in town styling the MIHARA YASUHIRO show. She's wearing a great pink DRIES VAN NOTEN jacket over a colorful JUNYA WATANABE top with khaki VIVIENNE WESTWOOD shorts, brown suede ZARA shoes, and a black YSL bag.

I forgot her name, but next is an editor from Harpers Bazaar Australia in a grey sweatshirt and skirt with studded light blue/grey'ish GIVENCHY shoes, then a guy in Melbourne in an APC trench coat, and Meg in Las Vegas with a black MARTIN MARGIELA dress and JIL SANDER heels.

Oh, Anna. I don't think there are many people around besides Anna Dello Russo who could pull of wearing this gold brocade'y DOLCE & GABBANA (i think?) dress out in the middle of the day, but anything goes during fashion week. She's also got a pair of gold heels and a MARC JACOBS clutch.

Next is Miroslava Duma in NYC wearing a red and blue print CHANEL dress and a BALENCIAGA bag, Mary Kate Steinmiller of TeenVogue in a cute blue ensemble with a great necklace and MARNI heels, then Han Gyul Koo in Seoul with a VINTAGE jacket and a pair of black jeans with a bunch of belts on the legs, and Holly at Capsule Show wearing APC.
