BAMIN NOTES | Trend: Mix & Match Utilitarian & Luxury Looks Like the Best of NYFW’s Street Style
New York Fashion Week just happened, and the best street style we saw didn’t resist the bitter NYC cold snap. The most innovative outfits managed to work with the freezing temperatures, combining more practical pieces like denim and even duck shoes with patterns, bright coats and fur jackets. While documenting NYFW’s street style for Vogue, photographer Phil Oh snapped a photo of model, stylist and writer Natalie Cantell mixing patterns and colors by rocking a leopard and orange neomesh BAMIN duffel. The mash-up of leopard and neomesh creates a fantastic contrast of high-low fabrics, and we really love how much the leopard and neon orange pops next to Natalie’s navy blue and black ensemble. Street style in NYC has always been about mixing high fashion with the utilitarian for looks that are both innovative and effortless.
Natalie’s navy button-up dress and black and blue textured coat wasn’t the only pops of blue we saw this NYFW. Every shade blue made an appearance–there were pale blues, bold cobalts and deep indigo. There was definitely a lot of denim, but we were especially impressed by the way street style icons managed to mix in a variety of different textures too, creating that contrast between high fashion and utilitarian by mixing and matching practical denim with pieces like luxurious cobalt leather jackets and blue furs.
