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.
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. (more…)
If you think of all white as the summer equivalent of all black, you will get over any qualms you have about wearing it. This classic neutral makes a statement while keeping you cool. Paula Goldstein posed in all white outside the Dior couture show in Paris.
A guest at the Dior couture show paired crisp white overalls with Chanel accessories for a casual but chic look.
Polka dots are the quintessential summer print, and they’re especially pretty in a long silk dress, as seen on Candela at the Schiaparelli show in Paris.
One trend we noticed at the Governors Ball – several stylish attendees were wearing chinoiserie-style robes as outerwear. Stylist Catherine Baba of Paris has been doing this for years, often pairing hers with a sun hat.
Less than a month to go until the couture crowd descends on Paris for another round of haute couture shows. Outside the Ulyana Sergeenko show last summer, a guest stepped out of a limo in a crisp look in all white from head to toe.
The couple that dresses together… Congrats to Giovanna Battaglia and Oscar Engelbert, married this past weekend and seen here at Paris fashion week FW2016 in matching sunny yellow. Check out the Instagram hashtag #oscarandgio for a ton of cute photos of their glamorous wedding in Capri.
Rainbows have been a recurring motif in fashion for the past few seasons. If you have anything rainbow, now is the time to bust it out.
