Vogue fashion writer NICK REMSEN: “In Vogue’s September 2014 issue, we highlight street style’s new paradigm—a seismic shift, essentially, away from the look-at-me and take-my-picture vibes of yesteryear. 2014’s choicest city-strutters are now dressed in, well, all things normal—though before you cry “normcore,” think ultra-chic basics by the likes of A.P.C. and Common Projects, along with intelligent, original daywear from the kids at Public School, Hood By Air, and Marques’Almeida.”

WEST QUEEN WEST/ TORONTO / CANADA
“TORONTO is currently enjoying newfound prominence—and desirability—amongst globe-trotting tastemakers. QUEEN STREET WEST is a verifiable artery of indie patisseries, homegrown labels, and hidden-from-view galleries—hallmarks of hipness, if ever they existed. It’s also the home of the Museum of Contemporary Canadian Art, well-established “art” hotels The Drake and the Gladstone, and the charming Bicyclette, a local clothing boutique and lifestyle brand whose owners love “glitter, DIY projects, treasure hunts and details.” Soho House Toronto is nearby, as is Graffiti Alley, a block where street art is both 100 percent legal and lauded.”
