A day’s activities help determine its uniform, whether you know you’re going to find yourself standing on your feet all day or sitting in an office; and the idea of roaming the streets and feeling at home in them dictates a certain style of its own. We’re focusing specifically on all things street this week, and so it’s fitting that our Monday should incorporate Hicham Riad’s shoot for Elle Belgium starring Yana Bovenistier and Chavelli Inghels.
In an urban landscape that equally incorporates grand old buildings and graffitied walls, Carolien Swinnen’s styling is ideal. Attitude-laden embellished beanies, print dresses and bold colours are at times boyish, at times feminine and sophisticated. Riad’s photography, meanwhile, plays to the story of two friends having fun away from the indoors.
Inspiring both streetwear dressing and the fun had wearing it, you can view all of Hicham Riad’s (myhicham.net) shoot for Elle Belgium, September 2013, by clicking on the gallery.
