Paris Fashion Week
Mix and match: Samantha Angelo of the Eye Travels tied a Saint Pablo tee by Kanye West around a Prada skirt. That’s Kim K. playing “bikini tennis” in the photo.
Love the roomy cut of designer Vika Gazinskaya’s skirt and top, as seen at the Chalayan show in Paris. Comfort is key for fall/winter 2016.
Knitwear is taking on more and more interesting forms, as seen on Veronika Heilbrunner, who wore a knit skirt with keyhole openings at the sides and a sleeveless sweater with yarn fringe, both by Loewe, at the show in Paris.
Congrats to Kym Ellery of ELLERY, winner of the Australian Fashion Laureate award for best Australian womenswear. Aussie actress Sarah Ellen wore a beautiful white silk dress by the designer to the show in Paris this month. Ellery’s signature long flowing sleeves have been a particular favorite with the fashion set.
Another great look that also works for the office. Christine Centenera wore a blazer over a knit skirt and top to the Loewe show. It isn’t all business though: click through to see a sexy detail in the back of the jacket. (more…)
Yoyo Cao arrived at the Loewe show in a cadet cap and Prince of Wales plaid pants suit. Surprisingly popular among fashion week guests, pant suits have shed their dowdy image and now feature updated, flattering cuts and colors that would work both in and out of the office.
If you’ve got it, flaunt it! Young women who have the abs, like model Alanna Arrington, seen here after walking the Balmain show, are wearing crop tops and bandeau tops well into fall, often under a jacket.
Forest green and Prince of Wales plaid are classics for fall, but the style is new on Natasha Goldenberg at the Carven show in Paris. Look for more – much more! – of the broad shoulder cut of this jacket and midi length of the skirt – they were all over the runways for spring.
This trend’s got legs: pajama dressing has been around for a couple seasons now, but this fall the looks are more sophisticated, like this navy silk pajama set on Chiara Ferragni. We noticed many women dressing for evening shows and dinners in silk pajamas. The style has particular appeal because it’s so comfortable, which is the way women really want to dress now.
In case you missed it, here’s a slideshow of street style photos, many of them by me, in the New York Times! It’s a nice roundup of the best looks we saw in Europe, especially during Paris fashion week. There’s also a Milan slideshow: (more…)
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.
