Street Style . sketchbook

illustration by cybele
Going through old sketchbooks I found a sketch for some girls I saw on Dekalb Avenue at Vanderbilt in Brooklyn - in 2oo7.  I liked how the trio were all in black.  I also thought it was interesting, with the exception of the girl in pants, that they looked fashionably current.  I updated the sketch by giving the first girl high-waisted print pants, instead of the capris she was really wearing, and then assigned them all shoes.  I hadn't drawn the shoes in the sketch.  This task allowed me to go shoe shopping for my models.  From left to right they are wearing, Bensimon lace-up flats - gris fonce, Jeffery Campbell mariel wedges and Madewell peekaboo slingbacks.
