Amsterdam Redefines Street Style

By Sarah Ayache

Amsterdam has a reputation for being progressive in regards to human rights and social acceptance, but it’s the port city’s adaptive street style that has begun wheeling heads. The Dutch capital’s fashion is largely inspired by the architecture of the city. With cobblestone roads and alleys paved over its 165 canals, biking, as in bicycling, has become the most common mode of transport.

It was Chanel’s intuition in understanding that women would walk and take metros, that famously created clothing combining style and functionality and Amsterdam is putting a new spin on this idea of stylish utility.

Check out life in the bike lane:
