New York Street Chic
The double-breasted jacket, particularly in cotton poplin, is a must-have in menswear this summer. Above, Johannes Huebl in a double-breasted jacket at Valentino, and below, a New Yorker on his way to work in a similar style. (more…)
The midi skirt paired with a button-down shirt is shaping up to be a key daytime look for spring/summer 2017. This polished but pretty Valentino skirt was spotted on a couple of guests at the resort show in NYC.
Top model Helena Christensen wore a Valentino frock in layered white tulle to the resort show this week.
The stars align at this time of year, when glittery spring benefit parties intersect with longer daylight hours, allowing us to see some eveningwear trends on the street. At the Whitney Gala and Studio party last night, which raised $5.1M for the museum, artist Cleo Wade wore a long slouchy, long sleeved dress with chunky white heels. The covered-up trend continues, even in eveningwear.
The always-on-trend Olivia Palermo wore a satin bomber jacket with tropical prints and a pop of yellow to the Valentino resort show yesterday in New York. She mixed it with a striped top in a clever styling twist.
Valentino came to town this week to put on a resort show in downtown NYC. The fashion crowd came out in force for designer Pierpaolo Piccioli, who hasn’t missed a beat since taking full helm of the label last year. Harley Viera Newton was one of several starlets in attendance and arrived in a pink striped Valentino dress embroidered with hearts.
Spotted outside the Marchesa bridal show: model Amanda Wellsh in black leather pants. It’s not time to put these away quite yet: they work well on a cool or rainy spring day, especially when you show a little ankle.
“Dressing down” does not have to mean wearing athleisure gear from head to toe, especially in New York City. This woman in Astor Place looked comfortable but chic in a open bouclé coat over a cool tee, pink knit hat, torn jeans and ankle boots.
Winter may be upon us, but that hasn’t stopped New Yorkers from dressing up in the morning. In downtown Manhattan, a woman mixed a fringe bag with black and nude brick motif tights and combat boots.
Winter is coming to New York City, but that hasn’t deterred people from biking around town. A man wore a hat, scarf and gloves as he biked through Astor Place one morning.
This woman was one of many wearing all black on the streets of New York today, the day after the 2016 election. Hot pants may be unusual in November, but the heart-shaped sunglasses should be a tip off: she is wearing an almost exact replica of the look of Darlene in Mr. Robot, the TV show about a dystopian future in which hackers band together under a group called “F Society.”
In the press: a whole slideshow of photos I took for the New York Times Styles section for the Governors Ball. There were a few cool looks among the sea of jorts, notably this one on Jessica Louise Dye, who coordinated a bunch of balloons with her outfit. Fun and extremely practical for the friends trying to find each other at this huge music festival.
J. Crew’s Jenna Lyons mixed a white tee with a cream colored blazer, cream colored jeans and gold jewelry for a relaxed but sophisticated look on a hot day at Prabal Gurung’s show.
This week I shot street style photos at the Kingpins Show, a denim trade show, for Team Peter Stigter in New York. It was a cool experience, and you can see all the photos on the Kingpins Facebook page. From the myriad denim swatches hanging inside to the jeans on the guests, there were so many looks that underscored the ubiquity of denim today. Where would we be without Levi Strauss? On Washington Street, construction workers labored in stone washed jeans while a girl whizzed by in shredded jeans and Converse sneakers.
A great menswear look outside the Stella McCartney show. The white linen suit is a classic, but the Birkenstock-esque sandals bring it up to the present moment.
