Ursina Gysi might be the most legit street style star at any given Fashion Week. Already, fan Tumblrs dedicated to the Swiss stylist’s off-kilter looks have started popping up—head to We Love Ursina Gysi for a trove of sartorial-based snaps. And the buzz around Gysi makes sense: While everyone is scampering to throw on a heralded It item for the cameras—be it a Vetements hoodie or Vuitton jeans—Gysi seems to already be wearing it. And rather than exploiting the perks of the trade-to-borrow pieces from designers, Gysi’s ensembles seem more like long-owned or thrifted duds, the kind that might have inspired the genuine article. Her artful plucked-from-her-drawer riffs on runway looks proves it’s not always about shopping—styling matters, too. Put another way: You don’t always need the designer garb to get the look.
Consider her knack for nailing unexpected trends before they become mainstream, whether it’s the slip dress and hoodie in the manner of those seen on the runway at Vetements or an upgrade on your standard black-and-white stripe track pants—hers being a fresh shade of blue with a lime green varsity stripe—artfully topped off with a heel. Everyone loves a windbreaker, sure, but Gysi will wear hers under a sweater with the rumpled hood peaking out from the collar. The best part? She’s always photographed on the go in stellar style. In other words, she’s just doing her job—and inspiring us along the way.
Here, the five trends that Gysi has been on the cutting edge of—all the more reason to keep your eye on her this season.
