Street View 207: Pitchfork Saturday style

by

comment

Street View is a fashion series in which Isa Giallorenzo spotlights some of the coolest styles seen in Chicago.


Stop the presses! Crocs are happening! Crocs with socks! Steven illustrates this trend perfectly—clean, easy and a tad touristy. But don't go all soccer mom-dad on me, OK? No matter what trend or era is currently on your mind, it's usually a good idea to avoid going "full whatever"—if you've seen Tropic Thunder maybe you remember this line. Wise words—the same moderation applies to style. Steven knows it and so do the Pitchfork-goers pictured after the jump.

Steven. Came to see: Kelela and FKA Twigs. Why this outfit? I didnt want to be too hot or too cold.

Carol Ann. Came to see: FKA Twiggs. Why this outfit? It was 90s inspired and cybernetic. I thought about what Id dress if I was a robot.

Meredith Graves, singer of Perfect Pussy. Wants to see: Kendrick Lamar and Slow Dive. Why this outfit? I just watched the French movie Populaire, about secretaries and speed typing competitions in the 50s, so I guess Im going for 1950s French secretary.

Aidan of Wild Beasts. Wants to see: St. Vincent. Why this outfit? Mostly ptacticality. Ive been traveling for one month on only one hand luggage, and double denim is very forgiving of everything you kinda have to brave through when youre touring.
