Irene Kim of The Contempt + the Sublime made a big splash at New York fashion week this past season, wearing cool outfits every day. At the Altuzarra show, she wore layers of floral print denim by Topshop, a pale blue coat, pink hat and those shiny new Birkenstocks that may be everywhere come summer.
Model Charlotte Free bundled up in green – including a moss green Chanel bag – after walking the Chanel show in Paris. She has really cool, individualistic personal style that reminds me of the grunge days in the ’90s, when we’d do a lot of our clothes shopping at Army Navy stores.
I had a dream last night about these DKNY jeans covered with decals, seen here on Dani Stahl outside the Derek Lam show, so I figured it was time to run the photo. A Valentino clutch and Fendi fur keyring add to the fun.
Up-and-coming label Sacai has been getting a lot of buzz recently for its great jackets and skirts. The show in Paris drew a few fashion heavy hitters including Caroline Issa, who wore a pretty blue print skirt and jacket to the show.
Sarah Rutson looked fabulous as always at the Celine FW2014 show in Paris. The lace-up booties are Alaia and the diamond-print coat – wait for it – J. Crew! Now that’s mastering the mix.
Congratulations to designer and street style star Vika Gazinskaya, who beat out thousands of competitors to become one of the 12 finalists for the LVMH Young Designer Prize.
With a new season comes a new obsession with coats and jackets. I loved this transitional look on a guest at the Comme des Garçons show in Paris. The blue silk coat is actually a blue leather jacket lined in faux fur and covered with silk. And once it gets warm enough, expect to see more bared ankles like hers.
Michelle Elie tends to wear all Comme des Garçons during Paris fashion week, and the Issey Miyake show was no exception. This time it was a fabulous red plaid outfit with designer Rei Kawakubo’s signature complex twists and folds. The gold filigree sunglasses are Dolce & Gabbana and the killer spiked heels (literally, you could probably kill someone with them) are Louboutin. Close up after the jump. (more…)
Like a certain other street style photographer at the New York Times, I am loving the pretty pastel pinks that are appearing like early signs of spring. Outside the Hermès show in Paris, a guest wore a pink cotton shirtdress wrapped with a pink wrap belt and accessorized with a matching pale pink bag and shoes. Beauty notes add the finishing touch: deep pink stained lips and lime green nails and toes. Detail shots after the jump. (more…)
Architectural lines emerged as one of the big trends in the fall/winter 2014 collections. A simple white silk jacket and black pants with white stilettos can look perfectly tailored and elegant.
French top model Caroline de Maigret wore an Etoile Isabel Marant cotton coat to the designer’s show in Paris. I love the shades of blue all over – including jeans and a denim Chanel clutch – and the tribal vibe of this spring coat. Very sexy and cool.
Vogue Australia’s Christine Centenera expertly layered a menswear-inspired blue shirt under a sweater and over a super feminine long black skirt and stiletto sandals at the Miu Miu show in Paris.
Elina Halimi of Paris’ Kabuki boutique wore a snakeskin print jacket and wide-legged ivory trousers to the Chanel show. This is the new shape of pants for 2014 – wide-legged and cropped to reveal the ankle – and yes, you can wear white boots before Memorial Day. They’re actually great for spring.
I love how simple and elegant this look is on model Anja Rubik after the Nina Ricci show. A slim below-the-knee skirt and ankle boots are a great way to dress up an oversize sweater.
