Styleforum in Paris: Streetstyle Pics - Page 4

post #46 of 61

Just thought that I'd bring to attention the first preorder that we've put together in Paris, for Stephan Schneider outerwear and one very excellent pair of pants:http://www.styleforum.net/t/517050/stephan-schneider-styleforum-preorders-are-now-open-until-noon-february-3/0_50

Thought that I'd move this temporarily to CM so that you guys hopefully get a look at the pictures that our photographer, @oisin, snapped of passing Parisians.  

 

Since this really is, to a large degree, quick snapshots of passerbys who caught our eyes, there are quite a number of classic menswear looks in here along with more streetwear stuff.  

 

I'm using our Paris threads to get a better handle on different mechanics of the forum, so please bear with me as it moves around between the two main forums (CM and SWD).

 

Cheers,

 

Fok.

I would agree with this but I also see a similar attention to fit in Milan for both men and women.

Even though the clothing is pretty fitted, I think that the style of Parisians is very different from the much more sexed up "bella figura" style that you see throughout Italy.

That's true -- France is a deeply conservative country in a lot of ways, at least in public.

Thanks for those pictures, it's really pleasant to see Paris through your streetstyle shoots !

As a Parisian, i tend to not pay enough attention to the diversity around me, i guess your pictures convinced me to be attentive again !

Great thread.

 

I will be there in 2 weeks - and this thread has made that time even slower!

I am born and raised in Paris and living there for the past 48 years and I can certify that most of the people shoot in these photos are not/French or Parisiens.
Paris is definitely not a city where "common people" are elegant or are really into fashion.
Most youth are buying their cloths from H&M or Zara...
If you take pictures of people in Marais or in front of Collette, you will have a very large percentage ofnot French.
All the pictures taken with Asians in it are definitely not French related... Go into Chinese quarter if you want to see real "French Asian"...
These pictures of French fashions are as much bogus and cliché than beret and baguette...

To be fair the author fulfills his stated brief: photographs of people on Paris streets. 

I saw some baguettes in Paris last November too.

It's street style during a fashion week. Not really not sure what you expected. We also saw a lot of unremarkable looking people.

Definitely feel like you should have included these unremarkable people in equal proportion to the numbers of them you saw on the street vs the people who "are elegant or are really into fashion".

 

I've always relied on SF images to give me a comprehensive cross section of the world outside my computer room. If these allegations by the Frenchman above are true and SF is in fact not representative of the man on the street then I'm beginning to think I've overbought spectator shoes, fair isle knits, shawl collar bathrobe coats, knee-length popover shirts, and pants with large cuffs that show all of my ankles. On the plus side these revelations mean that I get to buy and try out socks for the first time.

 

Je suis déçu d'apprendre ces nouvelles...
