Denim Street Looks at European Menswear Shows


Famed photoblogger Tommy Ton just released some street style pics, snapped outside of the recent AW2011 menswear fashion shows in Florence, Milan and Paris.  He has been doing double duty for Style.com (pictures below) and GQ.  Life imitates art imitates life, when we see pops of vibrant color in details, footwear and accessories amongst the masses, before seeing more hot pinks, yellows and neon orange colors on the runway — a departure from what one might expect for the usual (and expected) dark and gloomier Autumn-Winter collections.  The show before the show can be quite interesting in itself!  It’s still winter in Europe, we last checked, but the ladies were out in their sheer tops and denim shorts, too.  Why else but to show off all the architectural shoes!  Captured in the following shots were how people chose to spotlight denim with bright footwear and upturned selvedge hems, or “hid” denim pieces in the layers and textures of their ensembles.

Street Style: The Sartorialist Snaps Denim Jacket Look

Looks effortless, no?  This could be Al Pacino for all we care (who, by the way, has great skin up close) and he could rock this denim jacket look, complete with a faux floral boutonniere and pocket square.  I must admit, the denim jacket is a tricky piece, especially if tried by a novice Fashionisto.

The denim on this jacket works because the grain and the slight vertical abrasions give it a wool suiting appearance.  It isn’t completely Dandy, but you do get the sense that this man knows how to dress summer-casual-elegant.  The Sartorialist really gets around, to our delight, snapping this morsel from Florence, Italy.
