Street Fighter is legend. To say this fighting video game franchise was groundbreaking would be an understatement. The one-on-one fighting genre has never really been the same since this game was launched in 1987 and subsequently followed with the even more transformative Street Fighter II. Some three decades later SF’s influence remains evident. Look no further than the October 2017 issue of Vogue Me China for a story wherein the models “become” street fighters. Enter Wangy, Massima Desire, Kennah, and Nandy Nicodème, all of whom are photographed by Matthew Kristall in the gritty streets of New York wearing some of this season’s leading fashions. Nandy (pictured) wears a shimmery striped dress by Christopher Kane. You win. Perfect!
