Definitely one of my favorite Anna Dello Russo outfits: black and white with gradients of gray, Fendi bag, long knit scarf and a big bowler hat. Classic Anna!
Simone Marchetti of La Repubblica wore a great black and white plaid coat and shirt to the Armani show in Milan. And: that’s a Fendi fur keychain on his bag.
Here’s the first of our Milan Fashion Week photos – top model Anja Rubik looking stunning in black and white after walking the Gucci show. More to come soon!
One of the most beautiful women on the fashion week circuit, Kate Davidson Hudson is also making waves with her site the Editorialist, the accessories-based ecommerce shop now launching a free print magazine. Needless to say she always has fabulous shoes and bags, like these suede over-the-knee boots that could kick winter to the curb.
This girl really knows how to put an outfit together! Taylor Tomasi Hill wrapped a black and white striped scarf over a blue pantsuit and belted the whole thing, pairing it with black and white gingham shoes. It’s pretty brilliant, but it looks effortless. That’s another fashionable T.T. – Tommy Ton – in the background.
Model Anja Rubik wore a cool mix of black and white at the Gucci show in Milan. The open knit sweater was particularly ahead of the curve and would be a great option for spring.
Gender-bending fashion is in the news, with Jared Leto’s man bun and Diane Keaton’s tuxedo turning heads at the Golden Globes. For women, donning menswear isn’t just for black tie or Pitti Uomo: it looks sharp on a variety of occasions, as on stylist Tina Leung at the Carven show in Paris. The suit is Ralph Lauren, the stilettos Valentino.
A great coat goes a long way towards keeping you in style and warm, like this graphic black and white print coat on street style photographer Tamu McPherson of All the Pretty Birds.
I’m always thinking of Linda Fargo at this time of year because of the fabulous Bergdorf Goodman holiday windows. Here she is looking great outside the Carven show in Paris. She told me the lips necklace is just a novelty item she picked up somewhere – it adds a little fun to an elegant black and white look.
Caroline Issa wore a great black and white mix to the Chanel show in Paris. I also love how she styled the graphic print sweatshirt with a white button-down underneath, popping the collar for a Nehru effect.
Here are more of the new pants for you, looser, expertly tailored, and a little bit cropped in this case. Another development seen on the spring runways as well as the streets: playing with volume in the back of jackets and tops. Designers like Sacai have taken a cue from traditional Japanese garb and added an unexpected pouf to the back of jackets and tops, as on this one. Click through to see the jacket in profile. (more…)
Such a cute black and white rooster print coat on Miroslava Duma at Hermès. It’s by A.W.A.K.E., a new London-based label that was spotted on several tastemakers this past Paris fashion week. The bag is Hermès, the matching black and white spats Valentino.
Another styling note: how to wear fall’s voluminous coats if you’re petite like Miroslava? Cinch them with a belt.
Boots: they’re one of my favorite things about fall. As sad as it may be to put away flip flops for the next seven months, there’s something eminently satisfying about stomping around in a great pair of boots, as Nancy Sinatra famously noted. A guest at the Missoni show paired these blue suede ones with black knee socks underneath for a cool peekaboo effect, mixed with a crisp black and white dress. Look for more knee-high and over-the-knee boots this fall.
A really cool outfit outside the Armani show this morning in Milan. I like how she has paired the black skater skirt with a sheer black top under a white leather vest to add some feminine floatiness to the look. And here again we see the new over-the-ankle type boots that will be big for fall, here in snappy black and white.
Garage Magazine‘s Michelle Elie is never afraid to mix it up, pairing a black and white polka dot Comme des Garçons top with black and white polka dot Celine pants and some fabulous Viktor & Rolf platforms in black and white stripes. A shot of those shoes, after the jump. (more…)
