SCOTT TERRAL, 18, FASHION BLOGGER, FRANCE
SCOTT’S STYLE: How can I describe my style? I don’t have a style unique but I do like change my style according to my inspirations and my humors. I do like dandy’s style and mix what I have in my closet. I like chic and sophisticated outfit. Otherwise, I like wearing sober colors like the blue, grey, white , kaki, red. The other side, I’m trying to give a nonconformists style to my outfits.
INSPIRATION: I am really inspiring by the London look, Rock and Roll and the Dandy style at the same time. I’m trying to pick up some inspirations that I saw and liked in the magazine, pubs, tumblr…
FASHION + STYLE: When I’m hearing the word “fashion”, I think directly to the last collection of fashion designers, the trends of the season coming soon, what the it people are wearing.
About the style, the style doesn’t have the same meaning as fashion, because each people brings something particular, original, our personally touch to the outfit that people wear. Style means creativity and what we are. It’s like an another language or a signal to the people that we are different and we want to show it by our style.
This is the first impression that we give to someone and what we want to be represent by the style.
THE MOST STYLISH CITY IN THE WORLD: I think the most stylish city in the world is London and as you can see I am really inspiring by the London look.
HOLIDAY WISH-LIST: What I would like have on my wish list, are shoes (creepers and boots, coats (trench and duffle coat) and beanies! I just want to have a lot of things!
FALL FAVORITES: I mostly like wearing boots, my parka and jumpers during fall.

PAUL JEREMY GRYKO, 16 STUDENT, POLAND
PAUL’S STYLE: My style is certainly simple and often very casual, because I like feeling comfortable with clothes I wear. Also my appearance should be compatible with my mood. I think there’s no signature trademarks… but I love headwear – beanies, cups and hats – I suppose it has something to do with my hair-complex (I really hate it!).
INSPIRATION: Everything might be inspiring, but especially people – I often view street fashion blogs and watch all these incredible photos of people in London, Paris or NY. However, even in my city I can be inspired by someone or something. And - just look at this amazing colors of autumn – they’re gorgeous! To those who will see, everything might be an inspiration.
STYLE ICON: I don’t have a style icon, but I admire style of all these actors and actresses from old Hollywood. They had something elegant, subtle and sophisticated in their image!
PERSONAL STYLE EVOLUTION: person and it’s hard for me to say how my style evolved. I know that I’m at the beginning of my road – all I can admit it’s that I am still looking for “the golden mean” – between following trends and timeless elegance.
STAPLE ITEMS: Definitely a white shirt – it’s so many ways of good looking in it – from elegant to casual.
FALL FAVORITES: Big, soft, warm sweaters! I love them! When it is so cold outside and you are sitting in your favorite sweater, reading a book and drinking cacao or tea (ooooh gosh) – you must know this wonderful feeling!
And coats – it’s incredible how they make you look more sophisticated. It’s been two years since I’ve changed sport jackets to coats in my wardrobe and I don’t regret it.

20, UNITED STATES, ASPIRING FASHION PHOTOGRAPHER
JOSEPH’S STYLE: I really pull many ideas from British fashion history, especially Mod Culture, I adore the veneration of lines such as Ben Sherman and Fred Perry. But overall, a very put-together, clean look is what I go for, and most importantly, a look that resonates with my city. I really react to the visuals and aesthetic of Detroit and try to wear outfits that reflect that.
INSPIRATION: Amazing designers like Tom Ford and Alexander McQueen have always inspired me to just push fashion and myself. In a more subdued manner, much of art history inspires me as well, such as the paintings of Otto Dix and Henry de-Louse Lautrec, in which the characters are always wearing beautiful clothing and are just sophisticated and put-together. Also, the work of photographer Nan Goldin contains some of the most unique and inspiring individuals I’ve seen.
FAVORITE FASHION MAGAZINE: Currently, I would have to say Interview magazine. They always have great discussions, and I have probably read the interview with Tom Ford (in an issue from last year) countless times. Other than that, some of my favorites are W magazine, Dazed and Confused, and VOGUE.
CURRENTLY: Currently I’m studying photography at an art school in Detroit. My dream has always been to be a fashion photographer and I’m pushing myself more and more everyday towards that. Other than that, now that school is out I’ve really been focusing on my other jobs, working retail at J.Crew and modeling. I’m really working to get signed with bigger modeling agencies right now. Anyways, I’m hoping some combination of all 3 of these focuses gets me out to Manhattan and into the real heart of the fashion scene.
IF YOU HAD TO ONE WEAR PRINT FOR THE REST OF YOUR LIFE… Polka dot print, hands down! I love polka dot on either black or navy, and I really think it’s fun to just add touches of the print to an outfit, such as a pocket square or a tie. It also plays off other patterns such as gingham very well. My next in line would definitely be floral.
THIS SEASON: The two trends I’m really pushing are very short inseam shorts and short sleeve button downs. I try to stay at 7” for shorts, I just think it looks so much classier and easier to dress up. Also, I’ve been stocking up on my s/s button downs! They have to be my favorite type of shirt as they are so versatile. They can be comfortably worn by themselves during the summer heat, but can be layered under a cardigan or a jacket at nighttime. Short sleeve floral button downs are the bomb.
SUMMER LOVIN: When Im not at work I’m either taking photos or hitting the beach! I love exploring my city with friends and taking photos of what we find. I’ve been trying to get out to Belle Isle in Detroit and soak up some sun, a great excuse to wear my short bathing suits and tank tops. Music wise, lately I’ve been blasting a lot of Grimes, Hot Chip, MSTRKRFT, Beach House, and Daft Punk. I’m a huge electronic music fan.
PRZEMEK’S STYLE: I’ am huge fan of Scandinavian minimalism, so I also look up to simple and classic forms. Of course I love fashion experiments so sometimes I like to add on some trends and own ideas, then stir it up well and here we are… This is my style! I claim that appearance and what we are wearing, enable us to express our personalities. My personality is greatly influenced by situations I find myself in! So in the end my style is screening of all those influences.
INSPIRATION: I could make a list of a hundred things that inspire me well but I think that mostly people in my life, whom I met or saw on the street/internet. Also art and culture are lining-up!
WHAT IS ONE THING IN THE FASHION INDUSTRY YOU’D LIKE TO SEE CHANGE? I has a word with my friend about this matter and he talked about fast-fashion. He opted in slowing down this galloping madness. I think the truth lies somewhere in between… Of course, it is nice to have up-to-date clothes but I have to agree with him that fast fashion exploits people for cheap labor and the environment for resources. In the meantime, the concept of high fashion/haute couture is going away a bit, makes me sad.
STYLE CRUSH: Personally I find Brad Goreski, Kyle Anderson, Bryanboy and Simone Marchetti as my style Gurus.
IMPACT: I claim that fashion in itself has not a bad contribution to society. It is fairly positive I think and this effect can clearly be seen in every social group. I can also say that It moves clockwise first, then widdershins… so society has a significant impact on fashion too. Nowadays fashion industry is sky-rocketing, so it brings to a conclusion that there is demand for this kind of goods and contents. People care more about their appearance and they look for trends/style advice, inspirations and sorts of creative ideas in their lives.
SPRING AWAKENING: Intense colors like neons, at the other hand gradient-dye clothes. Also will add on some flowers pieces to my closet. Moreover, I deeply need in my life something made from neoprene (I saw neoprene top from COS but now it’s out of stock… by the way I think that neoprene will be strong trend this summer.
SUMMER LOVIN: I’m going to pass university-leaving exams, defend a thesis and get Bachelor’s degree so I’m study hard. As for music I currently have Watch the Throne album by Kanye West and Jay-Z on my player. And finally when it comes to clothing I have no idea what I will wear this summer. My shopping list is like never-ending story and it is being enlarged. I’m searching high and low the internet so it always ends up with new must-haves everyday!
FREDDY’S STYLE: I would describe my style as modern preppy chic on a budget. I find myself gravitating toward button-downs, polo’s, khakis, oxfords, and well-constructed bags. This combination of classic wasp meets modern Ralph Lauren with a little bit of Gant best describes my daily style. While emphasizing on my budget mind set - of relating my style to my inspiration with my current well curated closet.
INSPIRATION: I find my inspiration everywhere, growing up I found it in movies like Clueless and Cruel Intentions. Now I find my inspiration in books like Preppy and Take Ivy, while also being inspired daily on the streets of Manhattan, and not to forget beloved fashion blogs.
WHAT IS ONE THING YOU’D LIKE TO SEE CHANGE IN THE FASHION INDUSTRY? Personally, I would like to see a change in how interns are treated in the fashion industry. With small changes to a minimum wage stipend, and a proper learning environment an intern can successfully benefit from. The only way to grow stronger as a community is to help the next generation be their best!
STYLE CRUSH: Without a doubt, Brad Goreski. He has mastered preppy chic and made a brand for himself by doing it so well!
IMPACT: The biggest impact fashion has on society is how it allows each individual to express themselves artistically with their clothing. Which is why I love fashion so much! Each individual is able convey their personality without saying a word – creating the largest impact possible on society.
SPRING AWAKENING: I enjoy wearing color the most during Spring! Color-blocking is my personal favorite trend for spring, each season keeps on getting better and allowing for more colors. This Spring I can’t wait to wear more mint, orange, yellow, and pastel blue.
SUMMER LOVIN: This summer is a fashion mecca of interning at Vogue in the accessories department, while working at Bloomingdales in the Men’s Metro section on weekends. I plan on dressing my 7 days a week, and enjoying the tunes of Madonna’s new album.

OLEG’S STYLE: I don’t have particular sstyle. I’d say that i’m slowly moving to being classical preppy but at the moment i’m just mixing and trying. I feel like until i’m 30 i stil have some time to have fun with clothes.
IF YOU COULDN’T BE YOU, WHO WOULD YOU BE? Oh gosh… I’d love to live in another era. Like 60’s maybe. Like yeah i’d love to be Andy Warhol or someone from his circle. And visit Factory and Studio 54 except all the drugs that happened there.
WHAT ASPECT OF FASHION APPEALS TO YOU THE MOST? I really like that if you know even a little about fashion and style you can easily change people’s opinion about yourself. Like you can dress really sharp and look like a dandy for some people or you can wear total black and people will think you are so edgy and cool…Yeah, that is pretty fun.
STAPLE ITEMS FOR FALL: The coat for sure. Like it’s the very important thing. And i must say that it’s quite hard to find a very nice coat.
HOMETOWN GLORY: The style in Moscow is extremely boring if we are talking about most of the people. People dress ugly that is why sometimes i don’t even want to think what to wear to look better. Like it’s mostly grey and black, horrible khaki combinations. Not fun at all.
HOLIDAY WISH-LIST: I'd love to get a great bright mustard colored coat from Zara. And maybe i can get something from Dries van Notten on sale. Would be great.

CHRISTOPH’S STYLE: I’d say a mix of simplicity and rock’n roll elements.
INSPIRATION: Glotheswise mostly other people I see on the street or at fashion weeks. I also like scrolling trough streetstyle blogs for inspirational outfts (which is basically people watching with the exception that you’re not outside…).
11:11 WISH: For everyone to be a bit more friendly, tolerant and patient towards their fellow human beings. Simple kindness can change so much in our world!
STYLE ICON: I don’t really have ONE style icon but a few people who I think have a great sense of fashion, for instance Jordan or Clement from Lookbook.nu.
ING IN LOVE: During fall I love green army parkas.
WHAT ARE YOU THANKFUL FOR? I’m generally thankful for everything good that ever happened to me. My parents helping and supporting me. My friends. Food on the table. Clean water. Health. I know it’s not easy at times but considering other peoples’ situations we should really appreciate everything we have and take nothing for granted. I know this might sound silly coming from someone who’s blogging about fashion, but sometimes we should take a step back and reflect upon our lifestyle. We buy and buy without thought to give. So, maybe instead of buying your 10th pair of shoes go out and share some of your stuff with someone less fortunate than you.
Stay tuned for an upcoming post on Christoph’s beautiful photography!

TRAVIS’ STYLE: My style is really effortless, textures and cuts play a large part in my style. Whatever I am most comfortable in I wear.
INSPIRATION: The people I am surrounded by inspire me the most friends and peers. Blogs like tumblr and lookbook inspire me a lot too they play one of largest inspiration to me.
TEN-YEAR PLAN: In ten years I plan to be living in New York, I would like to own my own boutique working with student designers launching their designs and ideas.
FASHION THROUGH THE DECADES: The best decade is 90’s fashion. “Clueless” fashion is mind blowing, and still very much in fashion now. 90’s fashion was all about fun and over the top.
FAVORITE DAY OF THE WEEK: It’s hard to pick just one day it just depends on the week, my favorite days are when I have photo shoot.
ING IN LOVE: Hands down my favorite fall piece is my All Saints leather jacket, leather makes me feel strong and sexy.

GREGORI HOMAGREGORI’S STYLE: I have a more classic style, maybe a little rock… But I’m passive as well as new trends and new styles that keep coming back!
GENDER ROLES IN FASHION: I believe that each one has its role, both very important, as we all perceive women’s fashion always excel the male, but as the creation believe that both sexes have their importance.
WHAT DO YOU THINK FASHION WILL BE LIKE IN FIFTY YEARS? I really don’t know, year after year the fashion world comes to surprise us with its wonders, so I really don’t know, maybe will be dominating even more!!
GOALS AND INSPIRATION: I’m used to say that I don’t have a inspiration, I only create my looks, but a while back here, musicians and history inspired me, I’m always thinking about creating history with my pictures. And in the future I really want to travel a lot, to spend a year abroad and relax my mind!
WHY DO YOU LOVE FASHION? WHO DO YOU ADMIRE IN THE INDUSTRY? My mom was a seamstress, I grew up with fashion so I cannot leave her. I love also very much the magic of photo-shoots, and the models. Would it be too cliche to say that I like Coco Chanel or something like that? Not to mention the same brands, I admire my mother, a humble creator!
FALLING IN LOVE: Fall in Brazil isn’t like in the others countries, so I really love to use summer clothes and that’s what makes me comfortable, which makes me feel good, and also use the trends that I fall well!
HALLOWEEN COSTUME: I would dress me up like a glam monster! Maybe a Dracula!!
ADAM GALLAGHERECLECTIC LAD: My style is ever changing. Eclectic would be the best word actually. You only live once so I ry everything!
HOMETOWN GLORY: My hometown is Riverside, California and there isn’t much style there. I always get people look at me when I’m walking around in one of my fashionable outfits, so the only influence I get from seeing these unfashionable people is to be even more fashionable and different from the crowd.
STYLE ICON: I love bob dylan. I have recently become a huge fan of his in regards to style. But in general I am inspired by seeing a confident person walk by with their head held high, owning what their wearing. thats the best feeling.
GENDER ROLES IN FASHION: I believe everyones role is different. You make our own role.
GOALS: My goal is to be in fashion simply because I love it. Hopefully my blog will take off, I will become an editor of a magazine by my thirties or possibly a stylist. Who knows what dreams may come!
ING IN LOVE: This fall I’m looking forward to opportunity. It tends to knock when its cold outside.

MYSTERY MAN: My style is eccentric and androgynous. But I kind of dress like a tomboy. Like a girl who wants to be a boy. Even though I am a boy I definitely dip and dab in womenswear. Clothes are clothes I wouldn’t wear dress or anything. But tights are cool for anyone! People are definitely shocked when they see me come around the corner because one day I’m wearing short jean cut off and the next I could be in leather pants I mean you never know with me. But thats what I like, I like to keep people guessing and wanting more.
STYLE SOUL-MATE: Chloe Sevigny! All the “hipsters” love her, she’s like the Queen. But honestly if I could trade style or anything I would trade with her because we kind of dress exactly the same but not even on purpose. She’s really down to earth and I love that.
HOW DID YOU FIRST GET INTO FASHION? Um, probably in 7th or 8th grade when Dolce and Gabbana did those spacesuits for men. And when Jessica Stam, wore that silver dress and closed the show. That was probably when I first took notice at how cool fashion said to myself I’ve got to be in this world.
GENDER BENDER: Favorite Menswear: Rick Owens Wedges. Favorite Women-swear: Balmain Jackets and Balenciaga Booties from the Fall 2006 show.
IF YOU HAD THE CHANCE TO WORK WITH ANYONE IN THE INDUSTRY FOR A DAY WHO WOULD IT BE AND WHY? Um, this is hard. Kate Lanphear? I guess. She’s just a really cool chick and I want her job at Elle, except I want to work at W or Nylon.
ING IN LOVE: This fall it’s all about leather pants and hats.
SUMMER ESSENTIALS: Um, I recently moved to New York because I attend LIM College now. I’ve been listening to a lot of Best Coast, The Weeknd and Aaliyah. I’ve been wearing black jeggings almost everyday because my male jeans just haven’t been cutting it lately.

HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOUR STYLE? Postmodernist.
INSPIRATION: I get my inspiration from everything!
WHERE DO YOU SEE YOURSELF IN TEN YEARS? The future is uncertain but I know I will be in the position where I’ll be enjoying what I’m doing. Do what you love!
ING IN LOVE: This Fall I’m looking forward to a new hairstyle!
SUMMER ESSENTIALS: Well it’s the rainy season in Manila so its a perfect excuse to layer and cozy up in warm comfy layers such as lightweight parkas and double breasted suits. A perfect music to go with the weather while staying at home would be chillout music by Mr.SuicideSheep at Youtube. His remixes are amazing. Also, a close second would be BT - A Million Stars (feat. Kirsty Hawkshaw).

CASUAL KIND OF GUY: I would describe my style with two words: Minimalistic and Casual. In combination with my red hair.
STYLE EVOLUTION: When I was 11 or 12 years old and I bought my first baggy-pants, haha! Since then my style evolved so much, and that’s why I love it. You can try new things, and do whatever you want to.
ONE THING IN FASHION YOU’D LIKE TO SEE CHANGE: Bigger men’s sections in the fashion boutiques.
FAVORITES: My favorite color is violet, but at the moment I like the mix of brown, white, grey and black. As far as designers go I love John Galliano, Karl Lagerfeld and Tom Ford. I love Agyness Deyn and Kate Moss and I don’t really have a favorite magazine, since I mostly read what’s on the internet.
CURRENTLY: I’am currently doing an education as a nurse. In ten years I will be a doctor.
FALL SUMMER ESSENTIALS: This summer has been all about relaxing at the lake listening to Fever Ray, and wearing shorts all time!
ING IN LOVE: This fall I would say I’m all about brown leather boots, skinny jeans, scarves and parkas.
