One for the New York Times last week: Jian DeLeon headed out into a snow storm to get to the menswear shows. A baseball cap is actually a great idea for shielding the snow.
Leave it to mix master Veronika Heilbrunner to combine a Fendi coat with a Metallica tee, as seen here at the Chanel couture show.
Leopard-print pants mixed with a fur-trimmed jacket give a feline spin to this look on Giorgia Tordini at the Chanel couture show. The thing that takes it to the next level is the white shoes and bag in winter – a daring choice that really works.
Tina Leung wore a great combination of a Raf Simons puffer over a Courreges black and white jacket to Paris couture week. Her hair and makeup are Dior.
A classic black-and-white Chanel look spotted outside the couture show, complete with some major accessories.
Just when we were getting used to the wide-legged pants silhouette, it seems to be moving back in the other direction. Spotted on several influential guests at the Paris shows, including stylist Barbara Martello, were big puffer jackets like this one by Carmen March with skinny pants or even stirrup leggings like these.
Proud to photograph street style during NYFW: Men’s for failing New York Times! Here’s the resulting slideshow. Terrific!
Flashback to last winter’s deep freeze: if in doubt, pile on the layers, as Taylor Tomasi Hill did outside Milk Studios during last February’s New York Fashion Week.
Model Teddy Quinlivan posed in a black leather biker jacket and skirt after the Valentino show in Paris this fall. Add some black tights and this outfit would be a great bet for Paris couture week in winter, known for its relatively mild temperatures but gloomy skies.
“Dressing down” does not have to mean wearing athleisure gear from head to toe, especially in New York City. This woman in Astor Place looked comfortable but chic in a open bouclé coat over a cool tee, pink knit hat, torn jeans and ankle boots.
So this happened over the New Year: a round up of some of the best street style photos from the NYT, including some of mine! Thanks to my editors, photographer colleagues and everyone who posed for us. These photos wouldn’t exist without the fabulous fashion out on the streets.

Very sad to hear the news today that Franca Sozzani has died. The groundbreaking editor of Vogue Italia, who once published an “all black” issue of the magazine, was a pleasure to photograph. Always elegantly dressed, she was a true lady, smiling and polite, yet a bit mysterious. Although she favored certain labels – particularly Alaia, Fendi, Valentino and Prada, designed by her fashion friends – she was always open to change, both in what she wore and how she approached the magazine, for which she even wrote a blog. We will miss her. A gallery of some of her best looks, after the jump.

Take a tapas bar, a prime downtown location and popular celebrity chef Bobby Flay and you’ve got a winning combination for a place that will be packed seemingly all the time, as Gato has been since it opened earlier this year. By the time we got in the door, Bobby Flay had handed over the reins to executive chef Kenneth Carias, though according to the staff Flay circles back frequently. His flavorful imprimatur is still on all of the food here, though some dishes shine more than others, and previously unsung dishes are now rising to the forefront.

One notable trend to emerge last winter and this one is exposed ankles, no matter what the temperature. This photo was taken when the polar vortex bore down on New York fashion week last winter. Part of it is due to the conundrum of what to wear with cropped, wide cut jeans and pants, the new silhouette that is edging out skinny jeans. And part of it may just be plain old fashion masochism.
