I was sitting down having a coffee in Melbourne in some alleyway -- I forget the name -- and saw this girl walking towards me, struggling with her heavy-ass bag. She was nice enough to let me take her photograph. Love her VINTAGE look and the pink hair.

Also in mostly vintage is Sidra in NYC in huge harem pants, a cage vest, and a really cute hen bag! Also in New York is a dude in the LOUIS VUITTON x STEPHEN SPROUSE sneakers, and two dudes (one in London, one in Tokyo) rocking similiar looks, and Ko Taeyong in Seoul wearing mostly BEYOND CLOSET.

Here are a pair of girls I caught outside the BERNHARD WILLHELM show in Paris. I love the coats and all the layering. Wonder if they're roommates and share wardrobes...

Also in Paris is a dude in a shiny maroon/black hooded jacket with grey rolled-up CHEAP MONDAY jeans and white REPETTO shoes. In NYC is model Jamie Bochert wearing all CAMILLA STAERK, stylist Stephanie Carranza with a cool fringe bag, and a dude wearing a blue oversized HENRIK VIBSKOV robe/cardigan. I have the same thing in black/white... Also Hyun Jeong Kim in the STELLA MCCARTNEY for H&M jacket, the ALEXANDER MCQUEEN skull print scarf, black J BRAND jeans, YSL bag, and also in a pair of REPETTO shoes.

Here's freelance writer Sidra Durst rocking the "wet-hair look" in Nolita/Chinatown in a vaguely Asian print black/white extra-long VINTAGE cardigan and a pair of nifty high-waisted shorts. Actually, it's not from a giant glob of L.A. Look styling gel -- she lives around the corner and just got out of the shower.

Apache Beat singer, and editor of online magazine The Pop Manifesto, Ilirjana Alushaj is on Mercer Street in a cute blue TWINKLE trench coat over a green high-waisted skirt, blue leggings, a SPORTSGIRL bag, and red MARC BY MARC JACOBS flats. In Seoul are two dude, Dong Woo Han in a VINTAGE Japanese Navy Jacket (and as a commenter pointed out, there's a lot to be said about that...), with shirt, pants, and boots from Korean label GENERAL IDEA BY BUMSUK. The other guy is in a pretty cool black/grey jacket with black harem pants. Two more guys are in London -- one in a black coat with rolled-up jeans, and another in a cropped trench coat and B-STORE shoes.
