Despite years of shooting model Teddy Quinlivan, I never realized she was transgender – until she came out as trans at the end of New York fashion week in support of other trans individuals. Brava! It goes to show you how ridiculous the U.S. laws against transgender people are: she belongs in a Victoria’s Secret show, not a men’s room. Here she is chic and beautiful in green lace after the Sacai show in Paris. Love the boots too.
What goes with leopard? How about more leopard? Caroline Vreeland wore a leopard-print coat with leopard-print over-the-knee boots at the Cushnie et Ochs show. Over-the-knee boots were wildly popular this season among the fashion week crowd.
Sofa prints! Who knew they could be so chic? But they’re popping up everywhere, especially on lightweight floral coats for fall. Pair it with a velvet top and you’ve got a Victorian vibe going.
It’s really beginning to feel like fall in NYC, which makes me wish for all the rich colors and fabrics of the season. One for the New York Times and one of my favorite menswear looks from Paris – Robert Ferrell in a plaid overcoat with plaid bag. Love the combination of colors and patterns.
Prince of Wales plaid popped up everywhere during fashion month on women and men. This lightweight material works well as transition wear during the spring. At Valentino, Marianne mixed it with an orange sweatshirt and retro sunglasses.
Staying chic even in the rain with a fantastically painted leather coat and feather-trimmed jacket at Paris fashion week.
A pretty look in red and white on Tina Leung – and a good lesson in layering spring dresses when the weather isn’t cooperating!
A look in green silk with florals at the Gucci show – beautifully put together, especially the scarf tied at the wrist.
You may be wondering right about now when it will be time to break out the white jeans. The answer is: it’s never too early to wear white jeans, as seen on Eglantina Zingg of Project Runway Latin America – in February! This is one wardrobe item that needs a refresher every year or so. A cropped pair with raw cuffs is an updated spin on a classic.
Farewell, coats: One of my favorite coats of Fashion Month, an embroidered one by Etro, on Nausheen Shah at the Carolina Herrera show.
Hey New Yorkers, don’t get too used to this nice weather, because tomorrow, well you know – with Shiona Turini in a hoodie in the rain outside the Public School show.
At the Sies Marjan show in NYC, Aimee Song wore a dress in crushed velvet with white boots and fishnet stockings, several trends we would see throughout fashion month. For fishnets, the larger the knit, the better.
Sometimes the simplest look is the chicest. Model Maggie Laine mixed a (vintage?) fur with faded black jeans after the Tibi show in NYC.
