The best street style from New York Fashion Week SS17
Fashion month has officially kicked off with the Big Apple taking the lead. While known for being the most commercial of the lot, attendees are nothing short of dauntless when it comes to style. In tandem with Tom Ford’s delivery of untapped direction at his FW16 presentation, the New Yorkers show us how it’s done by donning some of the most trailblazing trends we’ve yet to catch up with.
Count on the sartorial mavens to set the pace for the coming weeks of fashion frenzy — we’re in for some serious shifts in the industry, given the see-now-buy-now model adopted by not one, but several designers. One thing’s for sure, though — nothing’s stopping the motion of NYC street style.
