New York Fashion Week
A cool and unexpected mix of a tee with damask culottes and gradient sunglasses outside the Temperly SS2018 show.
If a fashion blogger becomes a mother, what happens to her Instagram feed? WWD today reports on the “baby boom” among fashion bloggers, many of whom started out at age 22-24 and are now nearing 30. Seen here at Coach in September, Chiara Ferragni was several months pregnant at the time, unbeknownst to us, and now sonogram videos and other intimate family moments are interspersed with fashion posts. Many Instagram posts by Chiara and other bloggers like Chriselle Lim, Eva Chen and Arielle Charnas, however, differ from the previous generation’s endless stream of baby pics on Facebook. They’re carefully posed – or hilariously unscripted – moments with kids, who often happen to be wearing great outfits. Instagram’s own Eva Chen was the first-to-market on this trend. Enter the next wave of sponsorships…
More style in the snow on Caillie and Sam Beckerman of Toronto’s Beckerman Blog. They did not let the weather dissuade them from carrying Chanel bags to the shows!
On this stormy and snowy day, I am definitely having flashbacks to the very first morning of New York Fashion Week last February, when another snowstorm hit New York. Still editors and buyers trekked to the shows.
Very happy to be included in this New York Times Styles’ “A Year of Style, in Photos” for 2017. The other photos are quite amazing, especially when taken in sum. As for mine, I’m just glad that years of chasing Hanne Gaby Odiele down the street worked out, and not just as a workout.
A cool day-to-night look on David Thielebeule, who’s just as comfortable hopping from city to city for fashion weeks as he is chilling out in the country. As I know, because after seeing him in New York, Milan and Paris, I ran into him in a Westchester apple orchard! Great minds think alike? He’s always well dressed, no matter what the occasion. I like that this look is just the tiniest bit disco and therefore very on trend.
One of my favorite new models on the scene: Gisele Fox of Seattle, who closed the Prada show this season. Not only is she genuinely nice, she has a unique gamine look and great personal style.
What goes with leopard? How about more leopard? Caroline Vreeland wore a leopard-print coat with leopard-print over-the-knee boots at the Cushnie et Ochs show. Over-the-knee boots were wildly popular this season among the fashion week crowd.
The trend of mixing prints is not going anywhere anytime soon, especially in menswear. Alex Badia mixed stripes with stripes with plaid at the Michael Kors show.

It’s so embarrassing when your parents insist on picking you up from the party in person! Rande Gerber and Cindy Crawford at the Marc Jacobs show, which their daughter Kaia walked.
Such a great look for fall that has everything going for it: a tiger-stripe trench, faded denim, green lurex sweater and those dazzling shades. Also note the styling with the sweater tucked into the jeans. Yes, this is happening now!
Doc Martens are the boots of choice for a whole new generation, as seen on Justine Skye at the Public School show in NYC. A cropped hoodie and wide-legged pants finish off the look.
