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…)
We’ve been seeing a lot of double-breasted suits and coats on both men and women outside the shows. Caroline Issa wore a charcoal gray power suit under a red fur coat to the Louis Vuitton show in Paris. Click through for the clever message on the back of the coat. (more…)
Photographer and blogger Candice Lake wore a pretty combination of a long suede coat and long white tulle ruffled skirt with boots at the Moncler Gamme Rouge show in Paris. No matter how edgy and dark fashion (and fashion photography) can get – romance is not dead!
During Fashion Month it’s easy to overlook the actual photographers’ street style when some are dressed just as well as our show-going subjects. Marianne Theodorsen of the Style Devil wore a charming boater hat, collared shirt and white and ecru pleated skirt to shoot outside the shows in Paris yesterday. Modern Madeleine.
