Street View is a fashion series in which Isa Giallorenzo spotlights some of the coolest styles seen in Chicago.

Artist and LVL3 director Vincent Uribe joined forces with Chelsea Culp to curate #figureandground, a backdrop gallery featuring the artwork of 30 School of the Art Institute of Chicago alumni. Perfect for the Instagram generation: style your look, go to the party, pick a backdrop, strike a pose, and share the moment. This mutant piece was featured at Party, an event promoted by SAIC’s Student Union Galleries, which is celebrating its 20th anniversary. If you missed it, the After Party opening reception will be happening on February 17 from 4 to 6 PM. The current artworks will be on view until February 7. Oh, and about Vincent’s look: what’s not to love? Layers, textures, a well-executed print mix, and attention to detail—just check out those shoelaces after the jump.
