Berlin Fashion Week has officially begun, and Highsnobiety's dedicated team of photographers set out to capture the unsung heroes of style -- yes, of course I'm talking about the the fiercely dressed folks on the street.
It's interesting to compare how stylish citizens in different countries dress in preparation for the couture circus that is Fashion Week. How does Germany stack up in comparison to, say, New York City? Paris? Italy? If these photos are any indication, Berlin's fashionistas are divided between suave minimalism and outrageous, colorful posturing.
While there are no doubt many more street style photos to come, this first batch of images from Berlin Fashion Week are more than enough for fashion-lovers to dig into.
