In a rapidly changing global fashion system, new centres such as Shanghai are joining other cities such as Dubai, Moscow and Mumbai as global fashion capitals. Street Style is a series that explores and reveals the relationship between culture, the city, and the street fashion. Books in the series use a predominantly visual approach (visual ethnography) paired with critical analysis, and are inspired by street fashion blogs, magazines, and other fashion incubators such as internet sites.
Each volume is a collaboration between a street style photographer and an author, focusing on a particular city and the relationship between street style and the culture of that city. Style is predominantly an individual matter – the way people put themselves together creates a sense of individual identity, but collectively there is a sense of common culture in a community, a city, or a country.
The books will address points such as:
• Each city has a unique energy, a different look. How is this defined?
• What does street style tell you about a city and its culture?
• How does street style reflect cultural and social currents – what’s going on in music, art and on the sidewalks of communities?
Each volume will be divided into sections such as:
Head: Head cover, hair styles, makeup trends etc.
Body: Clothing includes shirts, skirts, pants, jackets, rainwear, coats etc.
Accessories: Handbags, shoes, gloves, scarves, belts, jewellery
