New York Fashion Week
A pretty look in red and white on Tina Leung – and a good lesson in layering spring dresses when the weather isn’t cooperating!
You may be wondering right about now when it will be time to break out the white jeans. The answer is: it’s never too early to wear white jeans, as seen on Eglantina Zingg of Project Runway Latin America – in February! This is one wardrobe item that needs a refresher every year or so. A cropped pair with raw cuffs is an updated spin on a classic.
Farewell, coats: One of my favorite coats of Fashion Month, an embroidered one by Etro, on Nausheen Shah at the Carolina Herrera show.
An Instagram for the New York Times: Jenna Lyons, Leandra Medine and Courtney Crangi hammed it up after the J. Crew presentation last September. It’s hard to imagine the brand without Jenna Lyons. Her personal style has made quite an impact on the fashion industry and on street style. We’ll see where she lands!
Sporty white pants with a red stripe go from winter to spring on Danielle Bernstein at the Tory Burch show.
Hey New Yorkers, don’t get too used to this nice weather, because tomorrow, well you know – with Shiona Turini in a hoodie in the rain outside the Public School show.
A mix of spring patterns was a nice harbinger of the warm weather to come.
At the Sies Marjan show in NYC, Aimee Song wore a dress in crushed velvet with white boots and fishnet stockings, several trends we would see throughout fashion month. For fishnets, the larger the knit, the better.
Sometimes the simplest look is the chicest. Model Maggie Laine mixed a (vintage?) fur with faded black jeans after the Tibi show in NYC.
These clashing colors on Camille Charrière early in NY fashion week turned out to be a good indicator of trends we would see throughout the month, when guests at the shows mixed clashing pink and red or orange and red for visual impact. The Celine crossbody bag is also a favorite with the fashion crowd.
One way to stand out from the crowd: a yellow leather jumpsuit by Savannah Snead, as seen on stylist Brandon Foster at NY fashion week last month.
The humble baseball cap is becoming something of a high-fashion item. We spotted Miroslava Duma wearing one several times during Paris couture week, and then a Balenciaga cap appeared at New York fashion week. The caps in question are usually new and close-fitting for a polished look.
Caroline Daur mixed a white jumpsuit with an unstructured trench by Rochas for a look that transitioned from winter to spring.
A tough-looking mix of Vêtements pants, Chanel black leather bag and combat boots outside the shows in NYC.
