Paris Fashion Week
The couple that dresses together… Congrats to Giovanna Battaglia and Oscar Engelbert, married this past weekend and seen here at Paris fashion week FW2016 in matching sunny yellow. Check out the Instagram hashtag #oscarandgio for a ton of cute photos of their glamorous wedding in Capri.
Rainbows have been a recurring motif in fashion for the past few seasons. If you have anything rainbow, now is the time to bust it out.
The humble sweatshirt has made a comeback recently thanks to Parisian label Vetements. Outside the Dries van Noten show, it gets layered under a sculpted, tailored jacket to make the whole look less casual.
Covetable shoes, bag, and pretty much everything on Janka Polliani at the Cedric Charlier show in Paris. The clashing colors keep it from being a little too neat.
Clothes that work for the office don’t have to be dowdy. At the Cedric Charlier show in Paris, Darja Barannik combined a midi skirt and jacket with heels and a crossbody chain bag for a look that’s both professional and fashionable – in Gucci green and red colors.
It’s that time of year again: time to bare your legs after a winter spent in hiding. Make the transition easier with mid-calf boots and a great jacket, as Irene Kim did at the Chloe show. We are seeing a lot of varsity and bomber jackets for spring, especially in this military green color. Kim was also ahead of the curve with her ombre hair.
Spring is the time to experiment with different textures and colors now that we can finally shed some layers. Model Irina Liss exited the Margiela show in a black and white leather jacket with sheen. A long skinny silk scarf is the perfect spring accessory.
At the Maison Martin Margiela show, Gilda Ambrosio wore two trends we’ve been seeing a lot of: velvet and choker necklaces. And the two things go together so well, in a Stevie Nicks kind of way.
We may not be fully out of the cold weather yet, but you can keep it light and breezy with a long lightweight coat, which are getting more play on the streets than cropped jackets this season. Caroline Issa wore a beautiful lace coat by Sacai over cropped jeans to the Valentino show.
On the prowl: Christina Pitanguy in a tiger-stripe jacket at the Stella McCartney show in Paris.
Loved the clean sculptural lines and fall colors of this Salvatore Ferragamo dress on Giovanna Battaglia, spotted outside the Carven show in Paris. Another styling tip to note: turtlenecks are still going strong for winter 2015/2016.
Jada Pinkett Smith wore a colorful yellow trench to the Chloe show, draping it over a white blouse with a long silk tie and slouchy black trousers that are all the rage now in Paris. My one critique of this outfit: too many accessories – the multiple bodyguards! Even Karlie Kloss evades her stalkers with just one, and there is a particular Chinese billionaire who often attends the shows with no security in sight. They are surely there somewhere, but much more subtle.
New blogger Samantha Angelo of The Eye Travels turned heads this fashion week season with her statuesque beauty and flair for mixing different pieces. Outside the Chloe show in Paris, she belted a long Dries Van Noten coat, part trench and part duster, over an Acne dress with a pointed collar and Mary Jane-style Charlotte Olympia shoes. The military subtext to the outfit may especially work for another reason: she actually served in the Marines as a clarinetist in the United States Marine Band! Certainly a multi-talented player on the fashion scene.
