You might want to take advantage of the next few days of 70+ degree weather in NYC to wear all white, a trend that kept going in Paris long after August had ended. Turkish Vogue‘s Ece Sukan cut a sharp profile in a white cotton jacket and skirt with a side slit.
Model Soo Joo Park left the Chanel show clad in Chanel, including a double C printed bandana-style silk scarf. Bandana motifs have been big both at Chanel and Saint Laurent, and if you don’t have the budget for one of these designs, you can always get in on the trend with just a regular black and white paisley-print bandana, $2.99 at Ricky’s.
One of the guys – Pier of Models Jam – thought it would be a good idea if we set up our own “photo pit” in the Tuileries to catch all the models as they went by. Pier and his Italian photographer comrades started with three chairs and a tripod. More photographers gathered alongside them, then a bunch of tourists formed at the sidelines, and before you know it we had created a sort of huge arena, or “studio,” as we called it, in the middle of the Tuileries. Justin O’Shea and Veronika Heilbrunner danced it up for the cameras. Such a fun moment.
The end of Fashion Month is always bittersweet, but everyone celebrated Wednesday in Paris. Models Alexandra Hochguertel, Ysaunny Brito and Agne Konciute gamely held up a sign and then ran down the street.
This coat by Dries van Noten looks like a winner for fall/winter 2014. Editor and trendsetter Miroslava Duma, who wore a silver and black one to the Ralph Lauren show, wore a second version in burgundy and blue stripes to the Balmain show in Paris.
One fun thing about the Chanel show is seeing all the clothes and bags outside the show in real life on real girls. Chiara Ferragni looked fab in a colorful Chanel dress and bag from the F/W 2014 supermarket-themed collection.
As fun as it can be to see oodles of Chanel and Fendi during fashion month, it’s also great to see some of our favorite editors wearing new designers. Joanna Hillman wore a colorful print Tanya Taylor dress to the Nina Ricci show in Paris.
This was one of those “only at Paris Fashion Week” moments outside the Haider Ackerman show. The ever-chic stylist Catherine Baba made a grand exit by bike. She was one of several to wear all white this week while the weather’s still hot – plus of course a Chinese sun hat that’s become her signature look.
Welcome to Paris Fashion Week! The weather has cooled off a little here, which means the fashion flock is breaking out jackets, boots and pants. Brazil’s Christina Pitanguy wore black layers to yesterday’s Cedric Charlier show, mixing a black Prada jacket with Stella McCartney pants, shoes and bag by Saint Laurent and a crystal shark tooth necklace by a Brazilian designer.
I don’t know how fashion writer J.J. Martin finds all these fabulous vintage clothes, but she certainly has an eye for them. Loved this stripey pink and black one at the Fendi show, which had side slits before so many designer started doing them this season.
Normcore is one thing, but the return of the brightly colored silk scarf might provoke more dejà vu in some of us. This ’90s staple was seen loosely tied on many a fashionable neck at the Milan shows, which is nowhere near the Upper East Side BTW. After the Fendi show, model Sasha Luss paired hers with a trench and cuffed jeans.
