Model Lakshmi Menon wore studded, cuffed denim shorts from the Gap when our Video Look Book cameras caught her strolling around Soho this week. She said she’d been doing some work for Nordstrom — much easier than couture shoots. She paired the faded jean shorts with a top by Dries Van Noten, Tod’s loafers, and a bag by Givenchy. She explained that her “easy chic” style is inspired by what she sees people wearing on the streets. “You see a huge amount of influences, and especially cultural influences, which you don’t see so much on the runway, I guess, because the runway’s also very trend-oriented. But on the streets it’s also a lot more spontaneous — that’s what I like about street style.” Check her out in the Video Look Book.
