Recently, I found myself going through some of my old shots from France in order to upload a few for Little Brown Pen's new Flickr group of Paris photos (Nichole was nice enough to post a few of them on her blog as well).
This made me think of my recent post about NYC street style, and I thought I'd revisit a few random (and totally unintentional) street style photos I took in Paris.
I just love this guy...again, it has not to do just with his "fashion", but with his entire attitude - his stance, his bike, his elegant tweed and ponytail. Gorgeous. These two were outside the Pompidou, and again...something ineffable. In their case, it's in the utter artlessness...they are "undone" in such a beautiful way, from the hair to the rumpled cords. There is some amazing mother/daughter style to be found in France as well (mais bien sur!) and some day I'll have to go back and do a whole shoot just on that subject.
And then there's China... ...which, in a very different way, is an amazingly fertile ground for street fashion-watching. Oh my, oh my! My heart beats faster every time I look at this picture.
