Street style photography is the best representation of when the catwalk hits the sidewalks – that is, when high fashion is paired with classic sensibilities. Thanks to blogs like the Sartorialist, Tommy Ton, and of course, the godfather of street style, Bill Cunningham, you know that you’re in the fashion “it” crowd when you’ve been snapped on the street. Fashion week is when the best-dressed come out to play, so here’s a little high-low fun from the opening shows in New York to the closing shows in Paris.
