The French love McDo and they love it even more in New York. The French love New York. “Eetz like walking zoo a movie zet,” says un acteur de second rôle in the French film of the year, Blue Is the Warmest Color. And, c’est vrai, with such a cinegenic history, moving through Manhattan can make you feel like you’re on film, a spectacular sensation that’s amplified  by the movie sets, which, if you spend enough time on the island, you’re bound to be asked to walk around. The movie stars and models also help—common as brownstones and skyscrapers—who casually serve themselves from the Whole Foods salad bar, ride Bixi’s opposite traffic, and walk their purse-sized pooches here like it’s NBD, because it’s not, it’s New York.

In honor of this spectacular city we call home, we’ve organized a tour of our favorite New York fashion imagery. From Vogue Italia‘s 2011 ride on the A Train through Vogue Japan‘s 2013 trip on the same, here is New York style as it’s fit-to-print: cinematic in scale and starring a breadth of urban tropes, incl. active uptowners, derelict chic, questionable subcultural appropriation, and many Frenchies, because no one loves us like they do.
