Nabile Quenum, West Side Highway, New York
Who is the subject and who is the object of a street style photograph? That designation gets harder and harder to maintain as the photographers who shoot at Fashion Week cross the line into becoming style stars themselves. Nabile Quenum of J'ai Perdu Ma Veste is one of the most immediately recognizable photographers at Fashion Week. His signature high-end streetwear look is popping up all over the blogosphere. He is one of the few people I have seen successfully wear the Pharrell Yogi Bear park ranger hat, and paired, at that, with chrome-tipped sneakers and fringe. His visual brand extends from his photographs right through to his person.
