Street-style photography – what’s next?

I’m absolutely loving Jak & Jil’s ‘My Favourite Things’ post of Anna Dello Russo’s palatial Milan apartments (yes, plural). Not just for the ogle factor of gasping at the Vogue Nippon fashion-director-at-large’s extensive accessory archive (can I just say monogrammed croc case?) but for taking street-style photography to the next level.

As blogging becomes more popular, a savvy blogger needs to think about setting themselves apart from the rest. Jak & Jil’s Tommy Ton and Garance Doré have both used their influential positions to engage with the fashion-fabulous and get even closer access to them. Tommy gets even more detail-focussed than Todd Selby in ‘at-home’ shoots with his stylist subjects while Garance said recently in this Interview magazine article, ‘I’ve kind of had it with street photography. At first, it was great to see fashion on someone going to work, but now there are so many pictures like that that the magic has been lost a bit. I want to take pictures that tell more of a story.’

I can’t wait to see where others go with the medium…

    A great post. London Fashion Week seemed over-run with street style photographers, all taking photographs of the same person. It must be very difficult for them to find a look or a person that can now be deemed as original. It was therefore refreshing to see this new avenue for such beautiful photography.

    Definitely where 'street-style' should be headed…i.e. home style.

    Although on the other hand, this kind of avenue gives 'normal' people less of a chance of being part of it? For me it is almost during the fashion weeks themselves when I tire the most of the street style blogs, for sure. Claire x

    So true, it is increasingly hard to do anything original!

    Yes it was a great feature and I agree with Garance even though I wish she wasn't with the Sat. Tommy's shoot was insightful although Anna Dello Russo has the scariest calf muscles which luckily were seen!

    Tommy lives not far from me. I've never met him but its cool to think that we may bump into each other one day.

    Perhaps I will take his photo.

    If only I could become so big that I could get Anna dello Russo to pose for me… freakin love her!
