Another solution to summer rain: if you have to wear a raincoat, at least make it pink!

Carine Roitfeld at Schiaparelli FW2014

The weather this week reminds me of the weather during last summer’s couture week in Paris, when it was relentlessly rainy and gloomy – in the middle of July! This didn’t trouble the fashion set too much, however – one solution, as Carine demonstrated, was to wear your usual summer dress but pair it with great boots or a jacket.

Woman on a Vespa, Milan

 

Impeccable style from head to toe: a Milanese guest arrived at the Gucci SS2015 show in wide-legged white trousers, pink cap toe heels, a blue button down and a bright red printed helmet. Molto italiana.

A great vintage look in vivid coral on J.J. Martin at the Stella Jean show in Milan – and of course she was wearing flatform sandals before most of us were.

Tilda Lindstam at Dries Van Noten FW2015

One thing we noticed at this past weekend’s Frieze Art Fair was the rising popularity of vintage clothing, especially among a younger generation of women who want to stand out without breaking the bank. After walking the Dries Van Noten show in Paris, model Tilda Lindstam mixed a vintage-looking mini dress (that wouldn’t be out of place on Mad Men) with a black leather biker jacket and black patent loafers.

Nothing says “summertime” like a crisp all white outfit. Christine Centenera was elegantly turned out in an optic white tunic layered over a white shirt and white slit maxi skirt at the Dries Van Noten show.

Christina Pitanguy at Chloe SS2015

This sophisticated but relaxed look is the way to dress right now. At the Chloe show in Paris, Christina Pitanguy mixed and oversized cream colored top with a clingy luxex pleated skirt and platform heels. It’s all about volume, kept in check with flattering proportions.

Skirt and Sneakers, Outside Chloe SS2015

The skirt or dress and sneakers trend is one of the better ones in the past few years. A guest at the Chloe show in Paris mixed a nautically inspired striped skirt with white sneakers and a print top for an easy and chic way to get around the city.

Prolific restauranteur Stephen Starr has created many restaurants that loom large in our collective New York memory, but most are not memorable for the food. If you ever had a girlfriend who wanted a “Sex and the City” type experience when visiting New York, all you had to do was book a table at the latest Stephen Starr place. They were all consistently glitzy, sleek and populated with pretty young things. But now Starr has made an interesting match with chef Justin Smillie, who’s just as serious about food as Starr is about setting the scene.
