Tilda Lindstam at Dries Van Noten FW2015

One thing we noticed at this past weekend’s Frieze Art Fair was the rising popularity of vintage clothing, especially among a younger generation of women who want to stand out without breaking the bank. After walking the Dries Van Noten show in Paris, model Tilda Lindstam mixed a vintage-looking mini dress (that wouldn’t be out of place on Mad Men) with a black leather biker jacket and black patent loafers.

This sophisticated but relaxed look is the way to dress right now. At the Chloe show in Paris, Christina Pitanguy mixed and oversized cream colored top with a clingy luxex pleated skirt and platform heels. It’s all about volume, kept in check with flattering proportions.

Upland

Prolific restauranteur Stephen Starr has created many restaurants that loom large in our collective New York memory, but most are not memorable for the food. If you ever had a girlfriend who wanted a “Sex and the City” type experience when visiting New York, all you had to do was book a table at the latest Stephen Starr place. They were all consistently glitzy, sleek and populated with pretty young things. But now Starr has made an interesting match with chef Justin Smillie, who’s just as serious about food as Starr is about setting the scene.

Hemlines: up or down? Why decide? A lot of great skirts now play with two different layers and lengths. This khaki one outside the Carven show worked beautifully with a blue varsity jacket.

Chilo’s

This sunny corner spot by the owners of Mayfield, also in Bed Stuy, opened just in time for outdoor dining season. The main attraction is the back patio, which in Hot Bird fashion holds several picnic tables and a food truck. It’s not quite as large a space, so you may find yourself jockeying for position during peak hours, but think of it as an excuse to make friends with your neighbors.
