The style on the street downtown Reykjavík

By Sara McMahon

  • Street smart. In Iceland there is only true, honest street -style. And lots of it. Photos/Sara

Street -style’s growing popularity, driven by photographers such as the great Bill Cunningham of the New York Times, Tommy Ton with Style.com, blogger/photographer Garance Doré, and The Sartorialist’s Scott Schuman, has not bypassed this little island in the North Atlantic.

 

Doré once said that today’s street style is “more fashion-week style” than true street -style, but this is not true of Iceland. Here, there is no fashion-week (we have an annual fashion weekend in March), only true, honest street -style. And lots of it. 

Iceland Magazine’s photographer went out and about town and shot a few local stylistas in an attempt to capture Iceland’s true street -style.
