New blogger Samantha Angelo of The Eye Travels turned heads this fashion week season with her statuesque beauty and flair for mixing different pieces. Outside the Chloe show in Paris, she belted a long Dries Van Noten coat, part trench and part duster, over an Acne dress with a pointed collar and Mary Jane-style Charlotte Olympia shoes. The military subtext to the outfit may especially work for another reason: she actually served in the Marines as a clarinetist in the United States Marine Band! Certainly a multi-talented player on the fashion scene.
One of my Parisian favorites, Caroline de Maigret, at the Haider Ackermann show in a black and white coat by the designer.
Such a sharp look on Karla Martinez de Salas – and believe it or not, she is about six months pregnant! The Miu Miu coat and top are a great boxy shape for maternity wear. The jeans aren’t actual maternity jeans, just low-cut J. Brands that she held onto, waiting for bell bottoms to come back. The wait is up!
Blogger Camila Coelho looked lovely in pink plaid at the Carolina Herrera show in New York yesterday. Detail shot of the Dior bag and shoes, after the jump. (more…)
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.
Liv Tyler wore Stella McCartney head to toe to the designer’s show in NYC on Monday.
Big coats with beautiful draping were noticeable everywhere this past fashion week season, including a plaid and dusty pink Johanna Ortiz coat seen on Nausheen Shah. Look for more come fall – or layer a lightweight one on top of an all white outfit right now.
With spring fully upon us, I am definitely feeling the need for some culottes. Skinny jeans were nowhere to be found outside the shows this season, and as hard as it is to pry oneself away from a trusty standard, it’s time to start wrapping one’s mind around a different silhouette like this one.
It may not be warm enough to ditch that outer layer just yet, but at least we can switch from black to blue for a more springlike look, as Caroline Issa did with a belted coat at the Kenzo show in Paris.
Two maximalist looks, complete with furs (one in pink), beautiful beading, suede and fringe on Erica Pelosini and a friend at the Elie Saab show in Paris.
One of France’s great beauties, Inès de la Fressange, wore an elegant combination of navy, cream and black to the Hermes show in Paris. Mixing black and blue: one of the key tenets of fellow French model Caroline de Maigret in her book How to Be Parisian Wherever You Are. Detail shot of Inès, after the jump. (more…)
