W Magazine’s Karla Martinez always looks fantastic, but particularly on the last day of New York fashion week, when the rest of us looked a lot less refreshed. She sported a Proenza Schouler red tweed shorts suit to the Ralph Lauren show – a great example of how to mix flats with business attire.
More black and white! Obviously something is in the air. Model Saskia de Brauw wore a black cotton suit with white trim after the Marc Jacobs show. Love the sheer panel and also her mussed hair.
Models off duty Hjunjeong Ji and Irene Kim both wore black and white to the Ralph Lauren show in New York – a great graphic punch.
Meanwhile, on the other side of town, the fashion got wild at the Jeremy Scott show. Sam and Cailli Beckerman of Beckerman Blog mixed Moschino bags and Sponge Bob visor with sequins and painted jeans. Cailli Beckerman actually painted the Beavis and Butthead cartoons on those jeans herself – impressive!
These boots were made for walkin’! Stylist Shea Marie of Peace Love Shea has just launched a line of shoes and boots with Steve Madden, including this sexy suede over-the-knee pair. She wore them with a leopard-print Equipment dress and white jacket with fringe sleeves to the Michael Kors show yesterday.
Anna Wintour wore a khaki dress with a white floral print to the Michael Kors show yesterday. This warm khaki color, a signature Michael Kors color, is figuring prominently in men’s and women’s collections this fall.
Blogger Linda Tol of I Believe in Pink wore a goldfish appliqué shirt and white jeans to the Diesel Black Gold show yesterday in New York. Bucket bags like this one are the bag to have this season.
Designer Jeremy Scott has really made a splash at Moschino, starting with his McDonald’s-themed collection of last season and now with a Sponge Bob Squarepants-themed one for fall. The mass market images are so jarring to see on high fashion – including evening gowns – that it makes you rethink this dichotomy altogether, rather like Karl Lagerfeld’s supermarket-themed show for Chanel. Are mass and class really total opposites, or have they merged? Italian blogger Eleonora Carisi of Jou Jou Villeroy wore a Moschino yellow Sponge Bob sweater under white overalls with a clutch appliquéd with images of pizza, cigarettes and an eye. We are watching, indeed.
Yes, already we are back to leather jacket season and this was a particularly cool one on WSJ’s David Thiebeuele yesterday at Lincoln Center. He mixed it with a white tee, windowpane plaid pants and lace-up oxfords. Note that he did not go for sneakers – keeping it sophisticated with just the right ratio of casual to formal. You have to walk the line.
