Semana de Moda en las Calles: Cycle Chic

Los bicis a los éuropeos son como las tablas de surf a los californianos.  ¿A quién le hace falta un vehículo cuando un poco de movimiento de los pies te puede llevar de paseo?  El blog basado en Copenhague, Cycle Chic, encaja su estilo de vida de ciclismo y su moda divertido, haciendo el arte de quedarse moderno en ruedas parece fácil.  Estoy anotando.

Street Style Week: Cycle Chic

Cycles to Europeans are like surfboards to Californians.  A way of life.  Who needs a motor vehicle when a little foot motion can take you for a ride?  The Copenhagen-based blog, Cycle Chic, dovetails their cycling lifestyle and funky fashion, making the art of staying stylish on wheels seem effortless.  I’m taking notes.

Semana de Moda en las Calles: Backyard Bill

Urbano + Exclusivo + Clásico + Chévere + Expresión Invidivuo + Mundial = Moda en la Calle.  Esas palabras y más son maneras que identificamos la gente de más de moda en las calles.  Los que se dedican su tiempo a encontrar los mejores de las calles de alguna saben capturar las caras y conjuntos que siempre nos dejan cautivados.  Esta semana, presentamos algunos de nuestros blogs de moda en la calle y nuestros “looks” favoritos de sus colecciónes.

Backyard Bill es un blog basado en Nueva York que empezó como uno en donde los sujetos fueron fotografiados en el patio trasero de Bill.  Años después, Bill se ha mudado de su patio solo a entrelazar los hogares y ambientes de sus sujetos.  Así tenemos un surtido íntimo y divertido de gente de moda.  Nos encanta.

Theo Synnestvdedt – Copenhague, Dinamarca.

Wesley O’Meara – Nueva York.
