We had a surprise sighting of model Grace Mahary outside the Rick Owens show, which she attended as a guest of the designer. Take a cue from her and go for leather pants in this cold weather. If there was ever a time for them, it’s now!
Look for more graphic prints like this one seen at the Maison Margiela SS2015 show on Vogue’s Virginia Smith. John Galliano debuted as Maison Margiela’s new head designer with a couture collection today that has received very positive reviews.
Moi, je ne suis pas Charlie.
I am not nearly as daring or provocative as the cartoonists and editors behind Charlie Hebdo. But like many I am drawn to the provocateurs. Artists and free thinkers are indelibly associated with the city of Paris and should be always. In the world of fashion they would be the punks or those who dare to wear the crazy things no one else would. At the Rick Owens show, Natalya Bogacheva was one of them, donning Thom Browne’s rabbit ears hat and mask to twirl in front of the Eiffel Tower. Vive la Paris.
W Mag’s Karla Martinez looked impeccably stylish in a great Celine scarf outside the Comme des Garçons show in Paris. I love how she layered different colors and textures to make a unified whole.
A cute look spotted yesterday on Madison Avenue and a great example of how to wear sunglasses with a winter hat. Another thing to note: fashion people are not letting go of cropped pants and bare ankles, no matter how cold it gets!
No matter what age we are, we can all take fashion inspiration from Carine Roitfeld. She manages to stay both on trend yet true to her personal style year after year. Before pencil skirts started popping up on runways everywhere, she was wearing them, bringing a classic trend into the new millenium.
A belted coat is an elegant way to fend off the cold. Model Auguste Abeliunaite paired a gray tie-waist coat with black leather pants, boots and a big Prada bag after the Prabal Gurung show in New York.
Leave it to Rumi Neely to look sexy even in the dead of winter. Outside the Prabal Gurung show, she cut a stylish silhouette with a fluffy gray fur coat on top and black leather miniskirt on the bottom.
As New York winter kicks into high gear, it’s time to review how to conquer the weather with style. Model Anmari Botha layered a black leather jacket under a 3/4 sleeve coat and over a black turtleneck and necklace last year at the Jason Wu show. This is a particularly good idea when it’s cold enough to wear your leather jacket even indoors.
A great hi-lo mix on blogger Golestaneh outside the Elie Saab show in Paris: a Stella McCartney colorblock sweatshirt with a blue miniskirt by Zara.
Adding a little bit – or a lot – of fringe makes skirts and dresses just a little bit sexier, especially when they’re in motion. At the BCBG show in NYC, a guest wore a leather fringe skirt and Aquazzura peep toe booties.
Always on the forefront of new designers and trends, Vogue Australia editor Christine Centenera wore a pale wash denim jumpsuit printed with the word “white” by Off-White c/o Virgil Abloh to the Chloe show in Paris. We saw a lot of this designer’s sportswear on fashion week attendees – particularly the menswear.
