I had a couple of photos in Deborah Needleman’s debut issue of the New York Times’ T Magazine this past weekend. Hope you caught this great new issue, and if not, it’s all online too. Suzy Menkes’ sharply observed story, “The Circus of Fashion,” is all about the increasing craziness of the scene outside the shows during fashion week. Well, I am here to document it all! Look for more street style photos here over the next couple weeks as we embark on Milan and Paris fashion weeks.
And just for good measure, here’s a street style photo of the inimitable Suzy Menkes, dressed in black outside the Marc by Marc Jacobs show in 2009. Invitation holder, indeed!
Fellow street-style photog Karl-Edwin Guerre of Guerrisms is a snappy but practical dresser throughout all the fashion weeks. On a slushy day outside the DKNY show, he layered bright down jackets and wore L.L. Bean boot-type shoes. The retro Bean boot has been a big hit among the fashion crowd this season, partly thanks to the weather!
Caroline Issa wore a green fur with a bright orange lining to the DKNY show. The coat is actually by a Central Saint Martins student. The streak of color at the lapel went with the streak of blue mascara on her eyes and red lipstick – see the beauty shot below.
Loved this all-over black and white look on a guest at the Badgley Mischka show. Detail shot of her studded minaudiere after the jump.
Michelle Elie of Garage Magazine wore black and white – including graphic print black and white knee socks – to the Lacoste show at Lincoln Center. Close-up of those socks, after the jump.
Photographer (and ex-model – can you tell?!) Candice Lake sported this great 3.1 Phillip Lim I [Heart] Nueva York tee to the Donna Karan show at NY Fashion Week. It’s especially cute paired with printed jeans and a red hat. The fur coat is Hockley London.
Some fashion people play fast and loose with the term “vintage.” It doesn’t refer to a bag from two seasons ago, but rather the treasures you can find when hunting through racks and racks of old stuff, as at Antique Boutique on Broadway in the ’80s and ’90s, when vintage had its heyday. Model Ruby Aldridge continues the tradition with the vintage stuff she wears all the time, like these cool jeans and Western boots. The resulting look is truly original. Close-up of those boots, after the jump.
Loving the leopard prints we’re seeing outside the shows this season. Stella McCartney’s leopard print jacket has been reformatted for spring with a bright, optic white background, as seen on Joanna Hillman outside Rodarte. The sexy black pumps are Alexander Wang.
Bye bye, New York Fashion Week! It’s over, and here’s supermodel Karolina Kurkova for you in Michael Kors, waving goodbye after the show. Next up for me: Milan and Paris. But there are still plenty of NY Fashion Week photos to come.
J. Crew’s Jenna Lyons wore a camel coat, tweed jacket, frayed jeans and J.Crew statement necklace to yesterday’s J. Crew show. Love her all-American style. Close-up of the shoes and bag, after the jump.
Taylor Tomasi Hill wore blue plaid and LL Bean-type boots – with heels – to yesterday’s Rodarte show. They may be a century old, but LL Bean boots have been a hot item this slushy NY fashion week season.
An outfit in creamy winter white outside the Rodarte show, with beautiful beading on the skirt. Details after the jump.
Sofia Sanchez wore a Rodarte leather fringe jacket to the show yesterday. Close up of her cool metal purse, after the jump. (more…)
