It was good to see some familiar faces at Coachella looking just as good as they do in a land far, far away called Paris fashion week. Blogger Sofie Valkiers mixed some covetable Jimmy Choo over-the-knee suede boots with a Dodo Baror jumpsuit, YSL bag and embroidered denim jacket by Levis. Also digging the layered necklaces – yes, this trend is back again.
This was the last photo I snapped before I was detained by the Coachella authorities for taking fashion photos with a 35mm camera. Pretty ridiculous. But whatever, Sofie, it was worth it!
It’s almost April and definitely time to bust out the florals, as seen on Tiffany Hsu, who wore a great botanical print top paired with cropped jeans to the Fendi show in Milan.
We may not be fully out of the cold weather yet, but you can keep it light and breezy with a long lightweight coat, which are getting more play on the streets than cropped jackets this season. Caroline Issa wore a beautiful lace coat by Sacai over cropped jeans to the Valentino show.
Brighten up a rainy day with graphic prints and bright colors as Polina Askeri did at the Jil Sander show in Milan.
I always look back to the winter shows in NYC some fashion inspiration at this time of year. Despite the chilly temps, Nausheen Shah looked perfectly turned out at the Creatures of the Wind show in an oversize coat, cowl neck sweater, wide brim hat and cuffed jeans.
One of my Parisian favorites, Caroline de Maigret, at the Haider Ackermann show in a black and white coat by the designer.
Takin’ it to the streets: Chiara Ferragni wore a studded leather garage-type vest (vintage) to the Tommy Hilfiger show yesterday, an apt choice considering the industrial background at many of the shows during New York fashion week. And there are those Alexander Wang boots again!
We’re seeing a trend/counter-trend effect here at New York Fashion Week, with romantic, flowy dresses a la Gucci dueling with the sporty look of vintage jeans. High-waisted, light wash vintage Levis are the favorite of the moment, as seen on blogger Danielle Bernstein of We Wore What. She dresses them up with a Sally LaPointe top and Celine shoes. Some detail shots, after the jump. (more…)
Remember layering? Well, you might have to do that again soon. Model Bruna Tenorio did a great job of it at last September’s fashion week, mixing ripped jeans with a tailored vest and velvet jacket outside the shows.
Lily Donaldson at Fendi Couture. Peace out and happy weekend!
Kind of obsessed with this retro look on Sofia Sanchez Barrenechea at the Elie Saab couture show this summer. The glasses! Also, after a few seasons of not seeing jeans because of overall skinny jean fatigue, denim may be back in a big way on the streets this fall, in a variety of cuts and washes. It’s that ’70s thing, as spurred on by the new Gucci collection.
Two great transitional outfits on models Ola Rudnicka and Maja Salamon that kept the fun spirit of summer going but introduced a bit of fall seriousness with polished accessories.
One of my favorite model-off-duty looks outside the couture shows in Paris. Model Cris Herrmann isn’t wearing anything particularly expensive but shows great personal style with a long red silk scarf tied once at the neck, oversize cloth bag and baggy (vintage?) jeans. Très chic.
This week I shot street style photos at the Kingpins Show, a denim trade show, for Team Peter Stigter in New York. It was a cool experience, and you can see all the photos on the Kingpins Facebook page. From the myriad denim swatches hanging inside to the jeans on the guests, there were so many looks that underscored the ubiquity of denim today. Where would we be without Levi Strauss? On Washington Street, construction workers labored in stone washed jeans while a girl whizzed by in shredded jeans and Converse sneakers.
French fashion friends Laure Heriard Dubreuil and Alexandra Golovanoff met up in NYC for the Gucci resort show, both in two cool looks that showcase the new wide cut of pants and jeans right now.
