Flashback to last winter’s deep freeze: if in doubt, pile on the layers, as Taylor Tomasi Hill did outside Milk Studios during last February’s New York Fashion Week.
Model Teddy Quinlivan posed in a black leather biker jacket and skirt after the Valentino show in Paris this fall. Add some black tights and this outfit would be a great bet for Paris couture week in winter, known for its relatively mild temperatures but gloomy skies.
“Dressing down” does not have to mean wearing athleisure gear from head to toe, especially in New York City. This woman in Astor Place looked comfortable but chic in a open bouclé coat over a cool tee, pink knit hat, torn jeans and ankle boots.
So this happened over the New Year: a round up of some of the best street style photos from the NYT, including some of mine! Thanks to my editors, photographer colleagues and everyone who posed for us. These photos wouldn’t exist without the fabulous fashion out on the streets. (more…)
Very sad to hear the news today that Franca Sozzani has died. The groundbreaking editor of Vogue Italia, who once published an “all black” issue of the magazine, was a pleasure to photograph. Always elegantly dressed, she was a true lady, smiling and polite, yet a bit mysterious. Although she favored certain labels – particularly Alaia, Fendi, Valentino and Prada, designed by her fashion friends – she was always open to change, both in what she wore and how she approached the magazine, for which she even wrote a blog. We will miss her. A gallery of some of her best looks, after the jump. (more…)
One notable trend to emerge last winter and this one is exposed ankles, no matter what the temperature. This photo was taken when the polar vortex bore down on New York fashion week last winter. Part of it is due to the conundrum of what to wear with cropped, wide cut jeans and pants, the new silhouette that is edging out skinny jeans. And part of it may just be plain old fashion masochism.
A belted and embroidered red coat seen outside the Carolina Herrera show has a pretty, folklore-y appeal that’s perfect for the holidays.
This was one of the coldest days on record last winter – and of course, a day we photographers were all standing around outside for fashion week in New York. The Lacoste show attendees put a chic spin on cold weather dressing, like this woman in blue with suede over-the-knee boots.
A dramatic and monochromatic look with an ombre coat, seen outside the J. Crew presentation last winter.
A burst of yellow – and a spring fashion preview in florals and camo – on Bryanboy and Tina Craig aka Bagsnob in Valentino outside the show.
Winter may be upon us, but that hasn’t stopped New Yorkers from dressing up in the morning. In downtown Manhattan, a woman mixed a fringe bag with black and nude brick motif tights and combat boots.
Loved the interplay of patterns in this embroidered sheer dress by Self Portrait with a leopard bag on Tiffany Hsu at the Erdem show.
The weather’s getting colder, and it’s time to get cozy. Caroline Issa looked comfy but chic in a cashmere turtleneck sweater and pale gray coat and trousers at the Peter Pilotto show in London.
Combat boots have been a major trend for fall 2016, as seen on Victoria’s Secret model Sara Sampaio after walking the Alberta Ferretti show.
Winter is coming to New York City, but that hasn’t deterred people from biking around town. A man wore a hat, scarf and gloves as he biked through Astor Place one morning.
