The wider world perceives fashion as frivolity
that should be done away with.
The point is that fashion is the armour
to survive the reality of everyday life.
Bill Cunningham, photographer

That blue jacket. That signature unobtrusive approach to snapping photos of the fashion–savvy, as they are naturally, on the streets of the chicest cities around the world. The fashion world bid a sad farewell to a beloved icon last week: Bill Cunningham, deemed the first street style photographer with a career spanning almost 30 years at The New York Times, passed away at age 87.

‘We all dress for Bill,’ said fashion luminary and artistic director of Condé Nast, Anna Wintour. Cunningham was a living landmark, making his way around Midtown Manhattan on his bicycle to capture the most fashionable passersby (here’s where we would go and what we would wear if we were in NYC and other major fashion capitals).

Trends and celebrities were not what he sought, though. Instead, his fashion reportage was drawn to details, confidence, and fashion as an art form of self-expression. All you had to do was to own your look.

And that’s a mantra we can – and should – all live by.
