The World’s Best-Dressed Street Style Stars, According to Photographers

By Alec Leach For Highsnobiety.com 

Fashion week is serious business these days. The format has fast evolved into a global spectacle, giving outsiders a glimpse into the mad circus that is fashion week, with all its ever-changing trends, outrageously expensive outfits and Instagram-savvy #influencers. Street style has launched careers, generated millions of clicks for online publications and produced some incredible eye candy, thanks to the many spectacular — or just straight-up gaudy — outfits on show.

With the Spring/Summer 2017 shows fast approaching (London Collections: Men kicks the schedule off on June 10), I hit up a few photographer friends of mine to see who’s killing it on the fashion week circuit these days, from rap megastars to industry insiders and off-duty models.

Stay tuned for a ton of street style action throughout June, as our street style snappers hit up the world’s fashion capitals to document the best — and most outrageous — outfits on show.

“Marcus Paul’s style is always on point. The designer he wears the most, Haider Ackermann, is also one of my favorites, so I really enjoy shooting him. Also, it feels great to see a professional stylist who can actually style himself perfectly. Surprisingly, it’s not so easy to find nowadays.” – Julien Boudet.

Meet Marcus Paul, Pusha T’s Stylist

BY JAVIN BUSBY

On 2011’s “No Church in the Wild,” Jay Z raps about a cocaine white Rolls Royce, “drug dealer chic.” Yesterday, he and G.O.O.D. Music president Pusha T dropped their latest single, “Drug Dealers Anonymous,” that will be on Push’s forthcoming album. It’s no secret that Push very well could be the king of coke rap, so maintaining a look that doesn’t abandon his own personal style, but is good enough for the president of G.O.O.D. Music, adidas collaborator, and OG in the game is important. To help him get there, meet Marcus Paul, the man behind Pusha’s style.

With an impressive list of clients—including Lebron James, Jay Z, and C.C. Sabathia—Paul tells us his business has grown solely through word of mouth and the strong rapport he has with his clients beyond just improving their closets. “Every client I’ve worked with, I try to build a relationship with them, because it’s not only a professional relationship, but also a personal one, and I think that that’s important,” he says. Paul strives to show his level of dedication and immersion beyond picking the right belt or sneaker. Clothing helps his clients play the part of the well put-together celebrity who is ready to go at all times. “They’re extremely tired, but they’ve still got to put on that mask of, ‘Yo, I’m an artist, I’ve got to smile, I’ve got to do what I’ve got to do.’ It’s important, and I admire that,” he adds. This level of connection has served him well as he continues to add new names to his clientele list, including those he says he is not yet at liberty to share, but excited to hint toward. “Let’s just say, they have some things that are out already that are making waves,” he says about two of his recent acquisitions.

Checking Out Pusha T’s Closet

Jacket: I love the pieces from ‘By Walid’. It’s this London brand my stylist Marcus Paul put me on to some time ago. This piece is silk with 18th-century embroidery. Every jacket is a one-off. I actually went to the designer’s studio last week in London and got to meet him. It was pretty fresh. He’s extremely artsy and a really cool guy. He had some newer patterns and jackets to choose from. For me, the details matter: Fashion and hip-hop are always about being first and being different and being able to set yourself apart from the bunch.
