Tyson Chandler

At first, the luxurious coating of snow brought on by the weekend’s blizzard only added to the high-fashion-meets-winter-wonderland spirit of the street style photos being snapped outside of NYFW.

Then it all turned to slush. Navigating sidewalks in anything less than boots became a treacherous ordeal. But in the midst of the haute melee, one man, Knickerbocker Tyson Chandler, rose to the occasion—by swooping up his wife and whisking her to the safety of Lincoln Center. Naturally, the ever-present Tommy Ton was there to catch the moment while on assignment for Style.com. The snap feels especially timely with Valentine’s Day on the horizon—not to mention a welcome dose of tenderness in the often unaffectionate fashion scene. To think, we once derided the seven-footer’s overly drapiness as the opposite of MOTH material.

Luckily, Mr. Chandler has more than redeemed himself.
