Victoria’s Secret model Maria Borges exited the Armani Privé show in Paris in subtle but colorful runway makeup, shell choker, and the natural hairstyle that has become her trademark. Not only a strong beauty statement, but perfect for summer.
Beautiful blue, white and red on Chriselle Lim, who kept it casual but elegant at the Armani Privé show in Paris.
It’s hard to resist model Teddy Quinlivan, who exits every show in a quirky outfit in a style that’s entirely her own and puts on a huge magazine-shoot-esque performance for us photographers. This move was all Teddy. After the Margiela show in Paris, she leapt past in a pale pink bustier, cropped black jeans and a jaunty military hat, still in her runway makeup by Pat McGrath. Wow.
Hannah Bronfman entered the Giorgio Armani show in Paris in a plunging white silk dress with a leather jacket thrown over her shoulders – a great transitional look as summer goes into fall. Also love that although she is quickly becoming a beauty icon, she keeps her look very natural.
Another great vintage look on Clara Racz, this time with layered men’s ties and a U.S.A. bomber jacket.
A particularly cute outfit on Laura Neilson at the J. Mendel couture show in Paris. I like the coordinating sailor stripes, and the flats are key for getting around town on a day of multiple shows. Also, she was one of a couple trendsetters spotted during Paris couture week who tucked a sweater into high-waisted trousers.
Louboutin the man and the shoe is a frequent sighting at the couture shows. Outside the Alexis Mabille show, we spotted a particularly cool pair with a wavy heel and raffia cuff.
How to do gingham now: Alexandra Golovanoff brought this classic check into 2016 with a a voluminous jumpsuit with puffed sleeves. Cute and modern. Also note the new silhouette for heels now: low and blocky.
Model Magda Laguinge dressed for a cool summer day in a vintage jacket and jeans after the Chanel show in Paris. The white patent leather loafers add polish to the whole look.
One of my favorite looks on Leaf Greener at couture week FW2016: a gorgeous green ruffled top and big dangly earrings. The ikat-print heels are an unexpected touch that work really well.
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.
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!
Vetements has really excited fashion fans in a way that few labels have in the recent past. Maybe it’s the combination of nice tailoring with a truly street, elevated athleisure feel. 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.
Carice van Houten a.k.a. the Game of Thrones‘ “Red Queen” looked so positively vibrant in fuchsia at last year’s Schiaparelli show that I didn’t recognize her until now. Just goes to show you want a jolt of summer color can do.
