Two cute and practical looks on models Sasha Luss and Kremi Otashliyska after the Chanel couture show in Paris. When prepping for Fashion Month, which begins this week and does not end until March 11th, I always look at what the models are wearing. Like us photographers, they are literally running between shows – but looking good doing it.
Perhaps in anticipation of the manga-themed spread she did for Vogue Japan, Anna Dello Russo wore several amazing graphic prints to the couture shows in Paris. At the Dior show, she wore an oversize Yohji Yamamoto coat emblazoned with Japanese cartoon imagery.
We saw a lot of elaborate fur coats outside the Paris couture shows, and with temperatures dipping into the teens in New York, expect to see more when New York Fashion Week starts on Thursday. Many of the coats were dyed in fanciful colors, especially pink.
We’re really seeing a lot of volume in the clothes outside the shows, especially the pants. It’s a complete 180 from the skinny rocker chick jeans that used to be a fashion staple at Paris fashion weeks. Nasiba Adilova wore a billowing gray silk overcoat and gray wide-legged trousers to the Elie Saab couture show.
Harper’s Bazaar Germany editor Veronika Heilbrunner always looks great throughout fashion week, but this was my favorite outfit of hers during couture. She took a diaphanous floral Erdem dress and layered it over a white turtleneck, black leggings and sneakers. What a cool mix of high style and street.
Soo Joo definitely seems to be one of Karl Lagerfeld’s favorite models of the moment, and it’s always great to see her after the Chanel show. After the couture show in Paris, she left wearing a swingy Chanel tweed coat, made a little bit more edgy with the addition of leather leggings. Also note! Turtleneck sweater.
It’s great to see the classic Dior silhouette on young new faces. Thai actress Araya Alberta Hargate emerged from her car in all Dior outside the couture show in Paris. Another view, after the jump. (more…)
Black and blue was a popular color combination outside the couture shows and an interesting spin on the usual all black. One guest at the Dior show wore a black and blue fur patchwork coat, pairing it with a wide brimmed hat and over-the-knee boots.
Loved the graphic punch of this look on Elina Halimi: red, green and black and white stripes. The accessories are great too, especially the covetable Louis Vuitton bag.
How do you mix rock n roll personal style with an invitation to the Dior couture show? Top your leather biker pants with a white fur jacket, of course. Stylist Barbara Martello looked super chic in black and white at the Paris couture shows.
This beautiful dove gray is a favorite color of mine, and it looks especially good done from head to (almost) toe in Dior. Christina Pitanguy created a nice bit of contrast by finishing off the gray midi skirt with forest green boots.
