Fashion Week: It’s what all of us ardent fashion aficionados long for. The clothes, the shoes, the bags, the hair! All of us long to be there, to be in arms length of the excitement. We wish we could snap memorable moments such as the epic Zoolander finale at Valentino or catch close-ups of the most vogue editors and models making the streets their runway in between shows. But unfortunately, for the large majority of us we’re verboten from the enticing frenzy that is Fashion Week. So instead, we scroll blogs and Instagram feeds to nourish our fix. Instagram offers us the immediacy we demand, especially in exhilarating times. We want to know what’s happening before it’s even occurred. But when there are millions of accounts churning out mediocre content, how do you know where to look? We’re here to solve this problem. Fashion Week is a special time, therefore you need curated material that meets your needs. That’s why we rounded up 10 of our must-follow Instagrams for this Fashion Week. And because we already know you follow Cara, Gigi, and Leandra, we came up with some more low-key, slightly more under the radar names and accounts that are ones to look out for.
A GUY NAMED PATRICK
When your resume consists of co-founding the underground dinner club Spring Street Social Society and creating a website called The Liquor Cabinet, you pique our interest. When you throw a first ever CFDA award for Fashion Instagrammer of the Year into the mix? Well, then you have our attention. @aguynamedpatrick is an iPhone-only documenter, which is part of what makes his account so damn impressive. With beautiful food and scene photography it’s no wonder he has 398k followers. I mean the guy is a natural. But what’s even more awing are his inviting Fashion Week images from Paris to New York. Based in the Big Apple, this is the guy to follow for a New Yorker’s perspective through an iPhone lens.
In case you didn’t know, “this is NOT a Street Style Blog.” Adam Katz Sinding would like for you to know that. The man behind the popular site and Instagram, @le21eme, is more like a photojournalist reporting the styles from the streets during Fashion Week and beyond. Not only that, the photographer has been commissioned by the likes of Style.com (now Vogue Runway) and W Magazine. The guy clearly has a great eye. He finds the beauty in the ordinary and the eclectic, which is why @le21eme is the account to stream for killer (forgive me, Adam) street style.
She’s cute, she’s stylish, and she’s fun. Susanna Lau is a TTS-approved triple threat. With bangs as infamous as Anna Wintour’s bob and a distinct, vibrant style, this British fashion blogger has made a name for herself since her start in 2006 with her blog Style Bubble (the girl has her own Wiki page). Praised by household names such as Christopher Kane and Nanette Lepore and featured in Elle, Vogue UK, and W magazines, Lau is a certified fashion insider. Make sure to follow @susiebubble for all access to the best of the best shows and more from this upcoming Fashion Week. She’ll bring you everywhere with her, and I mean everywhere that matters. You’ll also want to see those funky fresh getups she dons too.
Looking at Landon Nordeman’s Instagram is like looking at the world through a magnifying glass. Everything is as up close and personal as it gets and it’s simply majestic. The colors, the intimacy. It almost feels intrusive, yet you love it. Nordeman, a legendary photographer who began his photography career as an intern at National Geographic has landed spots in The New York Times and Town and Country. Naturally, the @landonnordeman account has an editorial feel, though executed in a unique style. You feel as if you’re standing right in front of Kendall Jenner at Marc Jacobs or directly behind the iconic Grace Coddington (shown above, duh). Frankly, following @landonnordeman is the closest you’ll get to feeling as if you’re in the midst of the action.
Beauty looks aren’t just about lipsticks and updos. Nails hold a noble place in the beauty realm and rightfully so. Think about the nail art craze that’s generated a demand for salons specializing in such artistry. Your nails are noticed. Whether it be for the reach of your green juice or running your hand along a gorgeous mohair sweater, they’re in the line of vision of many around you. Everyone values pretty paws, even designers. That’s why we’re following @opi_products this Fashion Week. Chosen to manicure the models of Jeremy Scott and Rodarte, OPI has pretty elite clientele. Did we mention our TTS founder @cyndiramirez will be taking over their insta this Fashion Week? Even more of a reason to give them a follow.
