One fun thing about the Chanel show is seeing all the clothes and bags outside the show in real life on real girls. Chiara Ferragni looked fab in a colorful Chanel dress and bag from the F/W 2014 supermarket-themed collection.
Welcome to Paris Fashion Week! The weather has cooled off a little here, which means the fashion flock is breaking out jackets, boots and pants. Brazil’s Christina Pitanguy wore black layers to yesterday’s Cedric Charlier show, mixing a black Prada jacket with Stella McCartney pants, shoes and bag by Saint Laurent and a crystal shark tooth necklace by a Brazilian designer.
Fashion Week has become a sneak preview of a different sort: some of the top bloggers attend the shows wearing looks from collections that haven’t even been released to the public yet. At the Emporio Armani show, Chiara Ferragni wore head-to-toe Fendi resort – a colorful collection that’s distinctive for its polka dots.
Models off duty Hjunjeong Ji and Irene Kim both wore black and white to the Ralph Lauren show in New York – a great graphic punch.
Blogger Linda Tol of I Believe in Pink wore a goldfish appliqué shirt and white jeans to the Diesel Black Gold show yesterday in New York. Bucket bags like this one are the bag to have this season.
Designer Jeremy Scott has really made a splash at Moschino, starting with his McDonald’s-themed collection of last season and now with a Sponge Bob Squarepants-themed one for fall. The mass market images are so jarring to see on high fashion – including evening gowns – that it makes you rethink this dichotomy altogether, rather like Karl Lagerfeld’s supermarket-themed show for Chanel. Are mass and class really total opposites, or have they merged? Italian blogger Eleonora Carisi of Jou Jou Villeroy wore a Moschino yellow Sponge Bob sweater under white overalls with a clutch appliquéd with images of pizza, cigarettes and an eye. We are watching, indeed.
Yes, already we are back to leather jacket season and this was a particularly cool one on WSJ’s David Thiebeuele yesterday at Lincoln Center. He mixed it with a white tee, windowpane plaid pants and lace-up oxfords. Note that he did not go for sneakers – keeping it sophisticated with just the right ratio of casual to formal. You have to walk the line.
Eva Chen has a new look for fall: a baby bump! Here she is in a plaid Marc Jacobs dress, personalized Edie Parker clutch and Balenciaga boots outside the Lacoste show. Close up of the bag – and bump – after the jump. (more…)
It was such a pleasure to see these two lovely ladies Caroline Issa and Yasmin Sewell at the Ostwald Hegalson show yesterday. Both wore black and white maxi dresses (Yasmin’s by Josh Goot) and both are designing their own clothing lines now. Caroline Issa’s for Nordstrom comes out in spring 2015, and Yasmin Sewell’s collection for Barneys is in stores now.
Leandra Medine wore a great white shirt by Rosie Assoulin with jean shorts and sneakers to the Creatures of the Wind show in New York. Also love the sculptural wood clutch.
Anya Ziourova is one of the best dressed women on the fashion week scene, and certainly one of the best dressed pregnant women anywhere. Rather than sticking to maternity clothes, she adapts current fashion to her changing shape. At the Schiaparelli show in Paris, she wore a green top and skirt with zigzag trim. Close up of her Olympia Le Tan “Greater Love” book clutch, after the jump. (more…)
Here’s another great maxi skirt, this time in red white and blue, perfect for summer in either France or the U.S.
Sneakers were all over the runways for fall 2014, but in an interesting takeaway, the It sneakers of the moment are by Dior, not a certain other high fashion house you may associate with sneakers (and supermarkets). Dior sequinned mesh sneakers have been seen on many fashionable feet this couture week, including Nasiba Adilova. Close up after the jump. (more…)
