I am always dying for a sartorial shot of color at this time of year. Bright reds and oranges make a statement outside the Prabal Gurung show with this lobster print skirt.
Another example of the full skirts à la Dior that are in fashion now. When splashed with a big print, they’re like a pretty canvas, as on Viviana Volpicella at the Valentino show. Like how she has paired it with a simple navy blue sweater and button-down shirt to keep it grounded.
I must say I was skeptical of the religious icon-themed Dolce & Gabbana fall/winter 2013 collection when it was on the runways last year. Decking yourself out in an elaborate Byzantine mosaic? Really? But I must say the clothes and bags look beautiful in real life, glittering in the sunshine – and someone like Anna Dello Russo can really pull it off.
Valentina Siragusa of Factory Blog wore an oversize purple silk blazer at the Gucci show yesterday. Look for more silhouettes like this in coats and blazers for fall 2013.
The always-chic Sarah Rutson wore a colorful short sleeved Givenchy “American Dream” sweatshirt to the DKNY show yesterday. Givenchy’s Riccardo Tisci has reinvented the lowly sweatshirt as high fashion, starting with his much-copied Rottweiler designs several years back. Look out for more luxe sweatshirts on the fashion crowd this fall. The boots are Balmain.
At the Peter Som show on Saturday, Natalie Joos wore a vivid, swingy look that could have come right off the spring runways. The top is Peter Pilotto, the pants Mister Zimi, and the two go wonderfully together. The look from behind, after the jump. (more…)
Loved the creativity of this sheer layered look outside the Dior couture show in Paris. The bag is Dior.
Fashion blogger Susie Bubble always stands out in a crowd. At the Valentino show, she wore Chanel shorts (vintage I think) a colorful print top and chunky heels and headphones. The element that brings it all together: the color blue.
One from the archives: Miroslava Duma in a green tween Lanvin tweed top and miniskirt. Love how she mixed it with an army green jacket, lots of bracelets and a delicious little Chanel bag.
Love the infusion of color that hits menswear when the weather gets warmer. Here a guest at New York fashion week mixes a sharp blue gingham blazer with green jeans.
This look is all about the mix – love how she fearlessly pairs lilac suede booties with a green print tee over an orange and white striped dress. It’s a new way of layering that really works for summer.
Floral prints have come a long way now that they’ve gone high tech, with an unprecedented richness of detail and saturated color. Olivia Chantecaille wore a bright pink and red floral dress to the Peter Som show, balancing it out with discreet black sunglasses, bag and shoes.
A rainy day is no excuse to slouch in the style department: just make sure you have an excellent umbrella. In the cold rain outside the Marni show in Milan, Eleanora Carisi and Candela Novembre looked chic in Marni S/S 2013 outfits. Novembre’s bag is Prada, the umbrella is Chanel. And before you ditch all your platform shoes in favor of the flat soles in stores now, remember, they’re the fashionista’s version of rain boots. Detail shot of that bag, after the jump.
This is how to wear brights right now: by pairing them with neutrals, as J.J. Martin did at the Balmain show in Paris. Martin has really mastered the ladylike look, bringing adult polish to trends and making them her own. To wit: the discreet black shoes and bag that finish off the outfit, after the jump. (more…)
