We are sipping our double shot espressos on Glenferrie Road in Hawthorn, bleary-eyed, (why do people schedule 8.30 a.m. meetings?) when a girl walks past wearing ruby brocade trousers and Nike Air Max 95s. Now that’s an #OOTD to overrule every other. Soon after, a guy in sky blue chinos, leather boots, and a burnt-orange cap runs across the street.
Where were all these fashion icons-in-the-making coming from? A little bit of detective work later, we figured it out. And by detective work, we mean that we looked up and saw a sign on the Glenferrie Station wall that said ‘Swinburne University of Technology’. Genius.
Now, there’s only one thing to do in a situation like this. Ditch the meeting, grab the camera, and run after strangers.
