Spotted outside the Marchesa bridal show: model Amanda Wellsh in black leather pants. It’s not time to put these away quite yet: they work well on a cool or rainy spring day, especially when you show a little ankle.
Love the roomy cut of designer Vika Gazinskaya’s skirt and top, as seen at the Chalayan show in Paris. Comfort is key for fall/winter 2016.
Robe dressing is the new pajama dressing? Gilda Ambrosio belted a silk robe with a fanny pack at the Armani Privé show in Paris.
A particularly cute outfit on Laura Neilson at the J. Mendel couture show in Paris. I like the coordinating sailor stripes, and the flats are key for getting around town on a day of multiple shows. Also, she was one of a couple trendsetters spotted during Paris couture week who tucked a sweater into high-waisted trousers.
Casual chic: Ece Sukan pulls it all together with a crisp cotton top in French blue and a straw bag she scored at a market in Colombia.
Summer is a great time to show off sculptural, minimalist fashion like this quilted print dress, her own design, on Vika Gazinskaya. The slicked-back hair continues on the minimalist vein.
A great vintage look in vivid coral on J.J. Martin at the Stella Jean show in Milan – and of course she was wearing flatform sandals before most of us were.
An all-white outfit looks even better accessorized with a colorful bag, like this Paula Cademartori one carried by Carola Bernard in Milan.
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.
I love how top model Saskia de Brauw combines different layers with such panache. She exited the Mugler show in Paris wearing an oversize gray coat, skinny scarf tied at the neck, oxford and a shirt dress. And yes, that is a bike helmet in her hand. After walking the runway, she just biked home like a regular Parisian!
A cute spring look on Leandra Medine aka the Man Repeller at the Mugler show in Paris. She always has the best jeans!
One of France’s great beauties, Inès de la Fressange, wore an elegant combination of navy, cream and black to the Hermes show in Paris. Mixing black and blue: one of the key tenets of fellow French model Caroline de Maigret in her book How to Be Parisian Wherever You Are. Detail shot of Inès, after the jump. (more…)
I still remember this bitterly cold morning last February. Model Irene Kim handled it with style, wearing a black leather jacket like a cardigan under an oversized fur coat. The white dress underneath is a nice sign of spring.
