On The Streets: 10 Spectacular Real-Life Looks From Fashion Week

New York Fashion Week has come and gone (hell, London is almost kaput, too), and while we loved celebrating the work of our city's best designers, we know that's only part of the fun for. The week was a hotbed of fantastic street style, with our friends The Sartorialist, Garance Doré, Street Peeper, Altamira, and Jak & Jil (Face Hunter, it wasn't the same without ya!) snapping away the best looks not seen on the models (at least not the ones on duty). This year seemed less like an off-the-runway fashion show of borrowed It-items, and rather a collective ease and sense of enjoyment in cross-continental personal style, whether it was showing off playfulness in accessories (Miroslava Duma's bracelets), color (Iekeliene Stange's multi-colored velvet ensemble), or reveling in those few special designer pieces (Dree Hemingway's Alex Wang fringe boots). Check out some of the looks that stood out for us the most this week... and by all means, tell us if you love 'em or hate 'em!
