Lynn Yaeger at Chanel Couture FW2016

As we get deep into shorts and T-shirt weather, let us take inspiration from Lynn Yaeger, who has been known to say that she doesn’t own any “normal” clothes. Summer dressing is a lot less boring with a mix of bohemian prints and lace.

NYFW: Men’s Street Style SS2017

It’s hard to believe, but we’re already moving into the spring/summer 2017 season in fashion. Last week marked the S/S 2017 menswear shows in NYC, where the guys still dressed well despite the heat. Here’s a whole slideshow of menswear photos I took for the New York Times Styles section for @nytimesfashion on Instagram. Major trends noted on the streets: multiple necklaces and open shirts, as seen on model Luka Sabbat above, chinoiserie and Japanese prints, especially on jackets, shorts suits, kimono dressing, and – wait for it – sandals worn with socks. Never say never!

Outside the show yesterday in Paris, where Vetements showed a spring 2017 ready-to-wear collection, Veronika Heilbrunner wore a Vetements tee with a long black leather skirt and sneakers.

Bill Cunningham 1929 – 2016

I was shocked and saddened to hear about the death of Bill Cunningham this Saturday. He was 87, but somehow he seemed immortal to me, or at least indefatigable. Anyone who shoots street style owes him the world. There was “street” photography before Bill Cunningham, but not the sort that focused solely on fashion until he started publishing his photos in the Times.

People often ask me if I “knew” him, and the answer, as it is for most people in fashion, is both yes and no.
