In the past few years, the fashion industry has evolved from one in which designers and photographers framed their own story around a model – one who remained largely silent and transmutable – to one in which the subject of the photograph has just as much of a voice, if not more so, than the designers and the photographers. So it’s interesting to see, thanks to the internet and social media, who thrived in the previous scenario versus who thrives in the current one. Now more than ever it’s apparent who is beautiful on the inside as well as the outside.
So cheers to the weird, the strange, the eccentric. There would be no “fashion” – design would remain static – if there weren’t people willing to push the envelope and in doing so, create a new normal.
Victoria Magrath of In the Frow in a dress that would have fit right in at last night’s Golden Globes.
R.I.P. Azzedine Alaïa, one of the last true master couturiers. He was a familiar sight during Paris couture week, when he walked into shows without any fanfare, almost always with his dear friend Carla Sozzani. One interesting thing to note about this photo – these were their outfits of choice for July. Mid-summer or not, black was always the order of the day.
An example of how a long-sleeved, high-necked frock can still be quite sexy, as seen on Jasmine Sanders at the Dior show.
Gigi Hadid walked the spring runway at Alberta Ferretti in a cool one-piece bathing suit. Good thing it was really warm out this day!
A tough-looking mix of Vêtements pants, Chanel black leather bag and combat boots outside the shows in NYC.
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.
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.
Winter may be upon us, but that hasn’t stopped New Yorkers from dressing up in the morning. In downtown Manhattan, a woman mixed a fringe bag with black and nude brick motif tights and combat boots.
Combat boots have been a major trend for fall 2016, as seen on Victoria’s Secret model Sara Sampaio after walking the Alberta Ferretti show.
This woman was one of many wearing all black on the streets of New York today, the day after the 2016 election. Hot pants may be unusual in November, but the heart-shaped sunglasses should be a tip off: she is wearing an almost exact replica of the look of Darlene in Mr. Robot, the TV show about a dystopian future in which hackers band together under a group called “F Society.”
Designer Ulyana Sergeenko arrived at the Dolce & Gabbana show in Milan in a black lace dress – and so did her daughter, who accessorized with an ice cream cone bag.
Isn’t it romantic? Fashion power couple Justin O’Shea and Veronika Heilbrunner arrived at the Jason Wu show in New York in all black. They both have great Instagram feeds that detail their travels around the world.
Loved this very Parisian mix of a sheer black ruffled dress and lace socks with a black biker jacket and deep red lipstick outside the Gucci resort show.
