Loved this menswear-inspired suiting look on Ece Sukan at the Tory Burch show last fall. The Chanel purse backpack in mustard yellow was right on trend, too.
Helena Bordon wore a cute Bugs Bunny-themed Moschino dress to the Roberto Cavalli show in Milan. A shot of her palm print Les Petits Jouers backpack, after the jump. (more…)
Susie Bubble wore not one but two very enviable Chanel accessories to the Rochas show in Paris: the new Chanel backpack and Chanel headphones. Yes, that necklace is actually a set of faux pearl headphones. Detail shot, after the jump. (more…)
Crappy weather – we get a lot of it in New York. And every time it sleets sideways I can’t help but think of other times we’ve encountered similarly crappy weather, as at the Jason Wu show during NY Fashion Week. One guest managed it with style by mixing a navy coat with black leather pants, silver high tops and a baseball cap. The orange vest underneath her coat is a nice pop of color – and great for added warmth.
One of the most interesting fashion stories this year is the huge trend that wasn’t: maxi skirts. Despite their appeal to the fashion set (including me, who featured them on this blog several times), on the streets they lost major ground to short shorts, a counter trend. One of my friends described her failed attempt at maxi skirts and dresses this way: “My husband hates long skirts.”
Is it the extreme heat or the avoidance of man repellent clothing that won out? Who knows, but the people have spoken. Short shorts like this cool outfit of black linen overalls and a backpack have become the uniform of summer 2011.
