The humble sweatshirt has made a comeback recently thanks to Parisian label Vetements. Outside the Dries van Noten show, it gets layered under a sculpted, tailored jacket to make the whole look less casual.
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 thing we noticed at this past weekend’s Frieze Art Fair was the rising popularity of vintage clothing, especially among a younger generation of women who want to stand out without breaking the bank. After walking the Dries Van Noten show in Paris, model Tilda Lindstam mixed a vintage-looking mini dress (that wouldn’t be out of place on Mad Men) with a black leather biker jacket and black patent loafers.
Nothing says “summertime” like a crisp all white outfit. Christine Centenera was elegantly turned out in an optic white tunic layered over a white shirt and white slit maxi skirt at the Dries Van Noten show.
This coat by Dries van Noten looks like a winner for fall/winter 2014. Editor and trendsetter Miroslava Duma, who wore a silver and black one to the Ralph Lauren show, wore a second version in burgundy and blue stripes to the Balmain show in Paris.
Fringe provided the dramatic accent for many of the guests at Paris fashion week, like this woman at the Dries Van Noten show, who accessorized a pink top with a fur fringe scarf and black hat.
Men’s accessories are a huge growth area in retail right now, and no wonder when men like La Repubblica‘s Simone Marchetti wear them so well. The pink polka dot scarf is Valentino.
Model Maria Loks wore Dries van Noten’s vertical stripe top when exiting the show in Paris, styling it nicely with a crisp white button down underneath. Also note the running shoes, a popular footwear choice for a lot of models and photographers during fashion week. I definitely had shoe envy!
Clutches: they’re not just handbags but impromptu umbrellas during a sudden rainstorm. Outside the Dries van Noten show, a guest ducked for cover under a red clutch that matched the red stripe on her green and black tunic.
Eva Chen, new editor-in-chief at Lucky Magazine and the youngest editor-in-chief at Conde Nast, wore a fabulous Dries van Noten dragon-print coat to the Sonia Rykiel show in Paris. Dries, Dries, Dries: it’s often cited as a fashion insider’s favorite label, and no wonder. The reclusive designer sources gorgeous prints like this one from archives near and far and makes them into wearable works of art.
The ever-stylish Elina Halimi of Kabuki Paris swished by the Alberta Ferretti show in Milan in a red and blue striped Dries van Noten skirt with fringe, beaded sweatshirt, gold booties and a motorcycle jacket.
