Luxe Layers: Susie Bubble at Carven SS2017

Susie Bubble at Carven SS2017

One item we spotted several times during fashion month: sheer tulle skirts worn over skirts or jeans. They may not add much in terms of warmth, but they do add some whimsy and glamour to an outfit, as seen on Susie Bubble at the Carven show in Paris.

The zig zag knit, popularized by Missoni, is a classic that never goes out of style. It’s also a cozy way to sweater-dress. Charlotte Groeneveld wore a zig zag knit sweater and dress by Chloe to the shows in Paris.

All Black, New York City, November 9, 2016

All Black, New York City, November 9, 2016

This woman was one of many wearing all black on the streets of New York today, the day after the 2016 election. Hot pants may be unusual in November, but the heart-shaped sunglasses should be a tip off: she is wearing an almost exact replica of the look of Darlene in Mr. Robot, the TV show about a dystopian future in which hackers band together under a group called “F Society.”

Layer It On: Helena Bordon at Sacai SS2017

Helena Bordon at Sacai SS2017

Layering is more than a means of keeping warm. At the Sacai show in Paris, Helena Bordon layered a turtleneck under a patent leather bustier for a look that was both chic and cozy. This technique dials down the sexiness of slip dresses and strapless tops to make them work for daytime. It’s also a way of extending your summer wardrobe into the cooler months.

Irene Kim at Sacai SS2017

Irene Kim at Sacai SS2017

Loved the details in this look on Irene Kim at Sacai: the strappy black leather overalls, the cutouts in the sweater, and the crushed velvet boots. Even better: her outfit matches her hair!

Gilded Edge: Giovanna Battaglia at Valentino SS2017

Giovanna Battaglia at Valentino SS2017

Another nice high-low mix of Prada and street wear, this time on Giovanna Battaglia. At the Valentino show, she topped a denim shirt and Fenty x Puma sneakers with a gold jacquard Prada coat. The flash of ankle keeps the combination of jeans and a long coat chic, not clunky.

Think Pink, Outside Valentino SS2017

Lady With Pink Hair, Outside Valentino SS2017 full length

This lady with pink hair was by far one of the most stylish people to walk out of the Valentino show this fall – much more well dressed and fabulous than many of the young models. So yes, as the New York Times said this weekend, don’t dress your age. If you’re going to dye the gray away, why not dye your hair hot pink?

Vika Gazinskaya at Chalayan SS2017

Love the roomy cut of designer Vika Gazinskaya’s skirt and top, as seen at the Chalayan show in Paris. Comfort is key for fall/winter 2016.
