Street View is a fashion series in which Isa Giallorenzo spotlights some of the coolest styles seen in Chicago.


Thanks to the counterculture spirit of the 60s, wearing second-hand clothes became a trend, one that's lasted up through these days. Out with the new, in with the old—preferably reinterpreted in novel ways, to avoid a costumey feel. Mark does just that, mixing a very Sergeant Pepper's military jacket with a pair of Air Jordan sneakers. Harmonizing apparently dissonant items is what takes a look to the next level.
