Natasha Zinko brought a pop of color to the Elie Saab couture show in Paris – and a ’70s look replete with purple glasses and blouse and yellow velvet pants. Expect more wild colors this fall as traditional autumn colors give way to the whole rainbow.
Elena Perminova – and a view of the trenches at Paris couture week this summer.
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.
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.
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.
We saw a lot of elaborate fur coats outside the Paris couture shows, and with temperatures dipping into the teens in New York, expect to see more when New York Fashion Week starts on Thursday. Many of the coats were dyed in fanciful colors, especially pink.
We’re really seeing a lot of volume in the clothes outside the shows, especially the pants. It’s a complete 180 from the skinny rocker chick jeans that used to be a fashion staple at Paris fashion weeks. Nasiba Adilova wore a billowing gray silk overcoat and gray wide-legged trousers to the Elie Saab couture show.
A great hi-lo mix on blogger Golestaneh outside the Elie Saab show in Paris: a Stella McCartney colorblock sweatshirt with a blue miniskirt by Zara.
You might want to take advantage of the next few days of 70+ degree weather in NYC to wear all white, a trend that kept going in Paris long after August had ended. Turkish Vogue‘s Ece Sukan cut a sharp profile in a white cotton jacket and skirt with a side slit.
Years after Alexander Wang brought it to the runway, sporty mesh is still being repurposed as high fashion. The intricate texture really brings out the beautiful lines of this ruffled skirt and crop top on Nausheen Shah at the Elie Saab couture show in Paris.
A little menswear for you: Vogue columnist Hamish Bowles’s choice of a plaid suit in summer 2013 seems prescient now that plaid is everywhere on the streets for men and women. Also love how his socks match his shirt.
Russian designer Ulyana Sergeenko appeared at Paris couture this week with a stylish new pixie haircut. At the Elie Saab show, a day after her own well-attended couture show, she paired a purple silk sheath with lace sleeves with Chanel’s wooden box bag and red stilettos.
