I have been publishing Street Style photography of random people from Madrid and San Sebástian for three months now. On my search for the interesting Madrid Style, I haven’t gotten dissapointed. Most of the looks I shoot are natural styles people are wearing every day but still they attract attention.
This morning I stumbled, searching for moda callejera Madrid on Google, over an article by ABC.es about Scott Schuhman, The Sartorialist about Madrid Style and Street Style in Spain.
It was about him and how he sees Spanish street style. His answer was pretty hard and the result was that the Spanish think they cannot be in fashion without spending a lot of money. They also don’t have this special something, that normally attracts the attention of his lense.
So when I look back at the pictures I have published so far for Madrid Style and the ones waiting for their moment here on madrilicious.com, I am asking myself:
- Do the Spanish only have style when they spend a lot of money
- Is it maybe that I get attracted easier to peoples style than The Sartorialist
- Or is it wrong and the Spanish really have more style than a Scott Schuhman has seen up till now?
Maybe this is a good moment to reflect over the Spanish style in Madrid and have a look at Street Style Madrid once again.
I would love if you guys could tell me which of the styles I photograhed you like best and why. Or maybe if you think he is right it would be great to know this as well. I will try to convince you of the opposite in the next month to come then.
To make a start my favourite of the looks I published for Madrid Style is the woman in Conde Duque. She is wearing a black blazer, a marine shirt, jeans and burgundy boots. AS accessories she has her cute dog and some cool sunglasses. It is a mix of French chic and Spanish casuality you can only find in big cities. It is not screaming for attention but the outfit is selected and put together carefully.
