Sheer summer getting shorter

A season’s high (or low) always presents the opportunity to see how a trend evolves to cope with the change in weather. Snapped on the streets of New York, this particular piece of street style gives us a chance to see how the sheer maxi skirt has evolved to cope with the heat of summer 2011. Unsurprisingly it’s gotten shorter, and isn’t quite so maxi anymore. It’s a stylistic change that isn’t quite necessary, however, given the trend’s skirts and dresses almost always included a shorter skirt overlaid with a longer sheer one.

Having flown over 590,000 kilometres in a single year (2012), he’s done much to push the boundaries of a fashioniser, always looking to fold one extra Tom Ford suit into his set of Samsonite cases and for one extra occasion to tie a tie for. As much an editor-at-large as he is’s Editor-in-chief, when he's not travelling to all the fashion weeks his passports will allow him to, Daniel works on guiding this publication’s editorial and trend views.
