Manhattan Street Style Throughout History

START

From runway shows to publishing houses, New York City is undoubtedly the American epicenter of the fashion industry. Before it became a fashion capital, however, it was considered uncharted territory until Dutch explorer Henry Hudson discovered Manhattan island on this day in 1609. As the Dutch colonized the land, the island flourished into a major port city during the 17th and 18th centuries, developing into an important political site during the American Revolution, Civil War, and into the 20th century. Today, Manhattan breeds beauty, opportunity, and inspiration in ways that few other cities have been able to recreate. For decades, the streets of New York City have doubled as a catwalk, even for those outside of fashion. The top trends and best kept sartorial secrets can be found around any corner, crossing a SoHo intersection or hiding in a West Village thrift store. This is nothing new—New York has been overflowing with street style since before “street style” was in anyone’s vocabulary. To celebrate the anniversary of Manhattan’s discovery, CR looks back on New York’s best street style moments, from the 1910s to today.
