After one of the busiest weeks in fashion, as London and New York hosted fashion weeks simultaneously, it is unsurprising fashion experts and celebrities conjured a myriad of inventive looks to don on the front rows. Drawing inspiration from an array of imaginative items and icons like 1980s shellsuits or Y2K Paris Hilton dresses, the street style looks were cool but classic.
