New York vs London: a fashion week infographic

Did you know the 3460 miles between New York and London is about the equivalent of three million times the length of supermodel Karlie Kloss?

That’s just one style-related stat from a new infographic released in time for fashion week season by online fashion marketplace Lyst. The focus otherwise is on pitting the two cities against each other from a trend perspective – given I’m a Brit in the Big Apple, this one is a winner for me.

New Yorkers are favoring the Isabel Marant Samuel sweater, while Londoners are after a particular Miu Miu pink number, it suggests for instance. It also shows little black dresses are trending in both cities ahead of Valentine’s Day, with key styles by Acne Studios, Maje and Etoile standing out.

Lyst tracks over one million items, from more than 9,000 global fashion designers and retail stores, on its site. It also generates $100m in annual sales. That leads to a reported 100,000 fashion data changes every hour.

Part of the infographic is below, but read more about it and see the rest via
