I remember reading the NY Times article or blog post or whatever about the trend of men wearing heels, and I never really saw any dudes rocking them except the usual fashion suspects during fashion week (Jean-Paul, Yu Masui, etc) - so I was excited to see this guy in Tokyo wearing a pair. OK, so they're not that cute, but still... Also, love the jacket -- can't believe its from UNIQLO...


Next is Peny with a white ARABELLA top with a red plaid attached scarf thing with cute black & white polka dot pants and red MIMCO heels. Estrella at the Palladium Boots party wearing purple/blue parachute pants with vintage THIERRY MUGLER heels, Yang Da Won in Seoul with a shiny blue AMERICAN APPAREL jacket over an asymmetrical ANN-SOFIE BACK sweater and ZARA sandals, and a girl at Lollapalooza in Chicago with a gondolier print TORY BURCH shirt, then Shamara in NYC with a WRANGLER denim jacket and brown skirt/pants thing.

Justin, a buyer for online discount shopping site Gilt Groupe, which explains what he's doing at Capsule Show -- scouting out new labels -- and answered my question on how he could afford the head-to-toe JIL SANDER runway look #1.

Yuta is a Tokyo'ite wearing a KENZO MINAMI t-shirt with LEVI'S jeans and shoes from MIHARA YASUHIRO, Jay Jones is on Houston Street in NYC with a RAF SIMONS x FRED PERRY sleeveless shirt with blue drop-crotch pants and red REISS shoes, Choi Young Rak is in a HELMUT LANG jacket with jeans and sandals by RAF SIMONS.

Here's Luis at the RAD BY RAD HOURANI presentation at the Soho Grand Hotel -- It's mostly H&M, and I'm always super jealous of people who have the patience to find the good stuff there.

Also have Jin Hee in a VINTAGE double breasted jacket, Dani at Capsule Show also in thrift store finds along with a pair of F-TROUPE shoes, Sho in Tokyo with a purple geometric print SOMETHING ELSE cardigan over a sorta creepy DIET BUTCHER SLIM SKIN marionette t-shirt with APRIL77 jeans, and a guy in Sydney with a great jacket over a grey ANN DEMEULEMEESTER t-shirt and RICK OWENS high top sneakers.

I spotted Fabienne while being dragged around the Lower East Side, falling for the bait-and-switch apartment trick by shady real estate brokers... I loved her tiger print STELLA MCCARTNEY top, wide-legged Stella pants and heels with little bells attached. I asked if she worked for Stella -- she doesn't... The real estate agent couldn't believe that this is what I do for a living, haha..

Next is a woman in Paris clutching a copy of Love Magazine with a pair of black FULL CIRCLE drop crotch pants, then a friend at Capsule Show in a bit of RICK OWENS with a black pair of ROBERT GELLER pants, Jinik Lee in Seoul with a black W DRESS ROOM jumpsuit, Mitch in Sydney with a RAMONES t-shirt with CHEAP MONDAY jeans, and a guy in LA wearing two plaid shirts with cuffed LEVI'S and a pair of TRETORN shoes.

When I'm in Tokyo, I normally try not to get photos of the Harajuku girls standing around posing & waiting for people to take their picture, but for some reason I was drawn to this girl -- in a musical note print METAMORPHOSIS dress with stripey black and white leggings and a bag from COACH.

Model, Martha Hunt is in Chicago dressing for the scorching heat at Lollapalooza with VINTAGE stars and stripes overalls and a lace bag from VICTORIA'S SECRET. Byeong In Choi is layering KENNETH COLE and rainbow stripe t-shirts in Seoul, Chris is outside Capsule Show in NYC wearing stuff from Scottish label FOLK with white VANS shoes, Oscar is also at Capsule wearing mostly J LINDEBERG -- the label he does sales for, and Tasleema & Akeen are at South Street Seaport wearing DIESEL, SUPRA, and vintage CAZAL sunglasses.

Grey Hutton captured this girl in London, in a cropped white lace NEW LOOK top with a pair of high-waisted jeans and a pair of NIKE sneakers. I dunno what it is about her, but I really like this look.

Have two more photos from this season's Capsule show -- Munsoo in a black ROBERT GELLER vest over a black BUCKLER t-shirt with acid washed CHEAP MONDAY jeans and CONVERSE sneakers, and a guy outside looking a bit Euro with a grey JOHN VARVATOS zip-up sweater, grey HUGO BOSS jeans, and a PRADA bag.

Here's another photo from last season's Paris Fashion Week -- Paper Magazine's Julia Frakes in an African print SUNO jacket over a black lace PRADA dress over a green 3.1 PHILLIP LIM dress, with her signature pastel vegan satin CHANEL bag and grey STELLA MCCARTNEY heels.

Lars Stoten at Capsule Show wearing his designs for MJOLK, Emma in a cut-out DION LEE skirt with a black and red WILLOW jacket, a dude in Harajuku Tokyo wearing black jeans that are hardly there, and then another dude outside the COMME DES GARCONS black popup store wearing all Comme.

Here's Akimoto Ryoto on Tokyo's Omotesando outside the MARIMEKKO shop. I love the brown harem'y pants with the almost clown-like black sneakers.

Here's Eri, who randomly once emailed me a couple years ago about taking photographs for Street Peeper, outside the COMME DES GARCONS BLACK pop-up shop near the NYC High Line park. Of course, she's in nearly head-to-toe Comme, aside from her black PRADA shoes.

Also in NYC is Ian in a nice VINTAGE short sleeve shirt with EARNEST SEWN jeans, black SPRING COURT shoes, and cute circular glasses. Then a woman in Paris in a tight grey turtleneck sweater and a flappy black skirt with a GIVENCHY bag, a woman in Sydney in a black/white stripey jacket, and Da Young Kim in Seoul with a VINTAGE shirt and drop-crotch pants with a gold CASIO watch.
