Vogue British Plays Copycat With Street Style Shots

Jul 27, 2011 By Amy

Style hunting is a very aggressive sport. Yes, I just compared style spotting and trend setting to a sweaty sport and I’m pretty sure it qualifies. There’s the long days of shopping, the carrying of the heavy bags, the quick impulse decisions, the team work when shopping with friends, or the solo street style strut. However you choose to participate, male or female, there’s no denying it’s fierce out there when it comes to hunting good fashion.

Now playing off of famed street and personal style blogs, who have clearly defined their style hunting skills, Vogue British is doing a little trending of their own with this “Style Hunter” editorial shot by photographer,Raymond Meier. You know times are changing when magazines are mirroring blogs. The editorial’s lead page even reads, “The new-season accessories are ammunition for street snappers and bloggers. From fabulous fedoras to brilliant bags, get in the frame.”

The problem with this shoot isn’t the insanely awesome fashions, it’s the fact that the images feel very posed and don’t come off authentic. I’d rather see the fashions showed off in an elaborate high fashion jungle spread than the street. Clearly with shots of shoes, cutting out people’s faces, they tried a little too hard to relate to the blogosphere aesthetic. Maybe if they wanted more organic shots, they should’ve worked with actual bloggers? Then again, they can always put the photos into Instagram to add an original look…
