The Parisian style has always been demanded but now more than ever thanks to a number fashion bloggers promoting Parisian style in their recently published books: Garance Dorè- Love Style, Life, Kristina Bazan- Kayture on the Go and Co-authored How to be Parisian. The hugely successful Instagram account @fourmonthsinparis by Carin Olsson is promoting all things Parisian, flowers, macarons, beautiful architecture and French fashion shows the essence of Parisian through the eyes of an expat. Classical, romantic, chic.
A counter culture trend opposes the classical Parisian- the urban, graphic, very NYC, bending towards the hip hop end of the fashion spectrum- New York Street style inspired fashion, graphics, block colors, jerseys, kicks and Calvin Klein Underwear, promoted a lot by the @beckermanblog, @soojmooj, @zanitazanita– the urban street bloggers.
If you combine the two you have a perfect ‘Sex and The City’ style mix between the Carrie looks in New York and Carrie looks in Paris- inspiring my four counter culture looks.
