Designer Jeremy Scott has really made a splash at Moschino, starting with his McDonald’s-themed collection of last season and now with a Sponge Bob Squarepants-themed one for fall. The mass market images are so jarring to see on high fashion – including evening gowns – that it makes you rethink this dichotomy altogether, rather like Karl Lagerfeld’s supermarket-themed show for Chanel. Are mass and class really total opposites, or have they merged? Italian blogger Eleonora Carisi of Jou Jou Villeroy wore a Moschino yellow Sponge Bob sweater under white overalls with a clutch appliquéd with images of pizza, cigarettes and an eye. We are watching, indeed.
Yes, already we are back to leather jacket season and this was a particularly cool one on WSJ’s David Thiebeuele yesterday at Lincoln Center. He mixed it with a white tee, windowpane plaid pants and lace-up oxfords. Note that he did not go for sneakers – keeping it sophisticated with just the right ratio of casual to formal. You have to walk the line.
Rumi Neely brought a new companion to the Prabal Gurung show: her puppy Titan. Titan is very fashion: he looks fierce even when he is in a good mood. Both knew that the all-white look is still chic after Labor Day especially when mixed with black accents.
There are certain people we photographers count on to bust out the wildest looks from the runway during fashion week, and Bryanboy is one of them. Though intricate and costly masks have appeared on runways at Maison Martin Margiela, Givenchy and Alexander McQueen, this one goes back to the club kid roots of this trend (and Lady Gaga). It’s an inexpensive piece by Kandigear that you can find on Amazon. The sneakers are Dior.
This is not just great maternity dressing but great fashion. At the Derek Lam show yesterday, Natasha Goldenberg accentuated her shape with a wild rooster print silk dress by Rochas.
Phillip Bloch looked particularly dapper at the Lacoste show yesterday in a blue sport coat and tie, blue cap and navy pants. Also note the shoes: this is how men are wearing sneakers now – very convenient for zipping around during fashion week.
Eva Chen has a new look for fall: a baby bump! Here she is in a plaid Marc Jacobs dress, personalized Edie Parker clutch and Balenciaga boots outside the Lacoste show. Close up of the bag – and bump – after the jump.

It was such a pleasure to see these two lovely ladies Caroline Issa and Yasmin Sewell at the Ostwald Hegalson show yesterday. Both wore black and white maxi dresses (Yasmin’s by Josh Goot) and both are designing their own clothing lines now. Caroline Issa’s for Nordstrom comes out in spring 2015, and Yasmin Sewell’s collection for Barneys is in stores now.
Susie Bubble arrived at the Jason Wu show in a particularly brilliant combination of a print Marc Jacobs top, vest and skirt, Prada orange straw fringe bag and blue Louis Vuitton platform heels. Add some green framed sunglasses to top it off. Close up of that Prada bag after the jump.
