Street Etiquette at NYFW SS14

Presenting the sights of New York Fashion Week as seen through the eyes of Joshua Kissi and Travis Gumbs of Street Etiquette. Today, they soak up the visuals that occur off the runway, on the streets outside the shows.

From Joshua: “Style and fashion are not just encapsulated for one week in February or one week in September—it happens every day. And it’s not just downtown. It’s not just uptown. It’s not just Brooklyn. It’s all over the place. Getting inspiration from people on the street is one of the biggest things for us.” [Excerpted from our recent Q&A.]

Joshua’s soundtrack for the day. Check out his playlist from last Fashion Week here.

From Joshua: “Great shows today, from experimental menswear by Luar Zepol, with Matrix-inspired gear and the usage of panel-lined shirts and pants, to Billy Reid, where models stomped onto the runway to the beat of a soulful, live brass band in a Southern-styled courtyard. Very enjoyable!”
