A chic and sophisticated look on Anya Ziourova in crisp black and white at the Balmain show in Paris. The neck tie, with just one fold at the throat and the ends dangling long, is particularly in fashion right now. Try it with any silk scarf.
Two maximalist looks, complete with furs (one in pink), beautiful beading, suede and fringe on Erica Pelosini and a friend at the Elie Saab show in Paris.
More military green, this time on Ece Sukan at the Sacai show. The way she’s styled this look, with a long coat over a miniskirt and knee-high boots, is perfect for transitional spring weather. It would also work with a trench.
Located on a sunny corner right near Barclays Center in Brooklyn, this spin off of Ganso Ramen specializes in Japanese street food and grilled meats and vegetables – basically everything you need to go with beer or sake. There are big wooden booths and counter seating overlooking the grill. It’s a set up that works well with what socializing New York diners seem to be craving right now: drinks and shared food.

A great combination of a bomber jacket in army green and Coca Cola sweatshirt with a feminine white skirt and pom pom heels outside the Kenzo show in Paris.
A cute spring look on Leandra Medine aka the Man Repeller at the Mugler show in Paris. She always has the best jeans!
Sigh – I must admit I am jealous of everyone just heading out to Coachella right now for weekend two. Still dreaming about weekend one! Model Gigi Hadid wore – what else? – Guess to day three of Coachella 2015.

Stroll past Maje, Theory and Reiss and you’ll find the newish Maille mustard store, a little slice of Paris in New York.

Two big trends we saw at Coachella: hip bags a.k.a. fanny packs – logical because they’re a hands-free way to carry your stuff while you’re at a concert – but also ruffles, which was more surprising to me. Big feminine ruffles were everywhere on tops and dresses, perhaps stemming from the prairie chic on the runways for spring 2015.
Pretty by the pool: Alexis Ren belted an H&M dress and layered it with gold necklaces at a poolside party in Palm Springs.
There’s nothing like spending a few days in the beautiful California desert to help you fast forward to summer. I just got back from Coachella, where I was shooting fashion for the New York Times Styles section Instagram – @nytimesfashion – check out the whole slideshow of Coachella style here. There were too many good looks to include them all though, so you’ll see more Coachella fashion on Gastro Chic! Like this sheer ivory silk dress worn as a bikini coverup with a gaucho hat, fringe bag and high tops.
