I am loving the chic take on utilitarian, garage-style jumpsuits on the streets now. Anya Ziourova wore a blue one by Rosie Assoulin to the Chanel couture show in Paris.
Raf Simons’ tenure at Dior has been marked by the same bold color statements he employed at Jil Sander. Nicole Warne wore a brilliant saffron-colored silk Dior vest to the couture show in Paris. Look for longer hemlines in coats and vests come fall, as cropped jackets disappear in favor of a more flowing silhouette.
The coldest winter I ever spent was a summer in New York air conditioning. The solution: silk! A long silk dress like this one by Leonard Paris on Maryna Kovaltchuk moves beautifully from hot city streets to cold air conditioned spaces, keeping the wearer comfortable all the while.
If you ever need inspiration to wear short shorts, just hang around a bunch of models in the summer – though of course, not all of us have legs like theirs. Vanessa Moody wore white denim shorts with a black top after the Dior show on a hot day in Paris.
I guess it’s the prep in me, but I’m always a sucker for bright colored pants in the summer, like these bright pink ones seen on Lorena Vergani at the Schiaparelli couture show in Paris.
A pretty look on Paula Goldstein in pink florals by Ulyana Sergeenko outside the couture show in Paris.
It’s easy to forget how totally crazy the scene outside the Paris fashion shows has gotten when you’re in the middle of it for a couple days. Scene from an average evening: Olivia Palermo entering the Fendi couture show, flanked by bodyguards and surrounded by photographers, tourists, selfie-seeking teenagers and PETA protesters.
Fashion journalist Blue Carreon wore his signature color – including floral print pants – to the Orley show in New York.
Kate Lanphear, editor-in-chief of Maxim magazine, mixed a pinstripe suit with a vintage rock tee and stilettos at the Michael Bastian show during NYFW: Men’s.
This week I shot street style photos at the Kingpins Show, a denim trade show, for Team Peter Stigter in New York. It was a cool experience, and you can see all the photos on the Kingpins Facebook page. From the myriad denim swatches hanging inside to the jeans on the guests, there were so many looks that underscored the ubiquity of denim today. Where would we be without Levi Strauss? On Washington Street, construction workers labored in stone washed jeans while a girl whizzed by in shredded jeans and Converse sneakers.
Embroidered shorts are a preppy summer staple, but they’re dangerously cool when they’re embroidered with sharks, as seen on Nick Wooster outside the Tommy Hilfiger presentation.
Fashion journalist Jeffrey Podolsky of Barron’s after the Michael Bastian show. As soon as photographers asked for his picture, he lit up a cigarette and smoked it throughout the whole photo session. His outfit too is a bit unorthodox: a pinstriped suit paired with white sneakers, beaded bracelets and a colorful necklace.
