Hamish Bowles at Elie Saab Couture

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.

Hamish Bowles in a Blue Suit

And in the world of well-dressed men, what would we do without Vogue’s Hamish Bowles? At NYC’s Lincoln Center, his blue suit echoed the cobalt blue seen in collections like Stella McCartney’s for Fall 2012.

Hamish Bowles at Victoria Beckham

The ever-dapper Hamish Bowles emerged from Sunday’s Victoria Beckham show in a deep blue double breasted suit, moss green scarf and light gray overcoat. He’s never been one to shy away from color.

Hamish Bowles at Oscar de la Renta

Bright color, one of the major trends for spring 2011, has always been in fashion for Vogue editor Hamish Bowles. Here’s how the look can play out beautifully in menswear.

Chanel SS2011

Some of the most glamorous women in the world converged upon the Grand Palais in Paris last week for the huge, blockbuster Chanel show that won rave reviews. As ever with Karl Lagerfeld’s shows, many guests wore Chanel from head to toe in a show of support (that verges on adoration) of the French master designer.

Oscar de la Renta SS2011

This season’s Oscar de la Renta show was particularly exciting – it took place during Brooklyn Tornado! You will see the sky get darker throughout these photos – that was not nightfall but the storm coming in. Fortunately we were on Park Avenue and avoided the actual tornado – but for some, it still meant running through a crazy thunderstorm while clad in Oscar de la Renta.

Just before the storm hit. Absolutely fascinated by this woman in chartreuse. (more…)

It’s called Rodar-TAY, darling. A select few braved the frosty atmosphere for the Rodarte show and arrived wearing some lovely, warm clothes for the occasion.

Sometimes, all it takes is a coat in just the right color, like the peachy nude of this overcoat, paired here with a fur hat and beige scarf. (more…)

Calvin Klein Show SS10

It was high-octane glamour outside the Calvin Klein show at their showroom off Seventh Avenue on Thursday. A celebrity contingent including Eva Mendes, Molly Sims, Miranda Kerr, Rose Byrne and Kerry Washington arrived to take in the show. And the rest of the attendees didn’t look too shabby, either.

Marc by Marc Jacobs Show SS10

Though Marc by Marc Jacobs is an American brand, the clothes have this quirky chic that seems quintessentially Parisian – even more so now that Marc lives in Paris. Lynn Yaeger stood outside with one of her reporter colleagues, marveling at all the clothes going by. The show attracts a creative crowd that really sees fashion as a form of self-expression – including Yaeger herself.

Lynn Yaeger at the Marc by Marc Jacobs Show

Definitely one of Yaeger’s most fabulous outfits ever. Her sense of style is timeless – for instance, she’s been wearing oxfords, one of the big trends of the season, for years now, and the intarsia doggie detail on the corner of her sweater evoked the lions in the “Doctor Doolittle” theme of Anna Sui’s show – the show that would take place the day after this photo was taken.

Fashion Week FS08: Marc Jacobs

Finally, the last installment of fashion week: the Marc Jacobs show. Sorry for the delay!

As always, there was excellent people watching to be had at the MJ show. These photos were hard to whittle down.

Gretchen Mol channeled true Hollywood glamour in a white coat.
Hamish Bowles, always ahead of the curve, mixed plaids a week before everyone saw the same trend at the D&G show.
Ellen Pompeo looked gorgeous in the deshabille MJ look for spring.
Richie Rich in black nail polish and rhinestone-encrusted owl thingy.
Luxe velvety layering in a Bloomsbury look.
Rachel Zoe is shocked to learn that the show started without her. Funny, they waited for Anna Wintour.
This girl (Interview Mag? Not sure.) is always On Trend. Black funky glasses, shiny tights, and leopard shoes.
It takes panache to pull off mauve. Somehow this looks really good, especially paired with pea green.
Lynn Yaeger: but of course Bloomsbury is in!
Anna Wintour and her equally elusive husband J. Shelby Bryan.
This dress has a machine gun print! Love.
Neon florals plus biker jacket. A good bet for spring in New York.
Bill Cunningham was beside himself when he spotted these two girls with silk flowers in their hair. Turns out they work for Marc Jacobs.
I had no idea that Ukrainian PM Yulia Tymoshenko was a fan of Sonic Youth. Kidding, people. Still, I like that this hairdo has staying power.
Nice biker jacket and beautiful hair.
MIA. I’m not sure I like what she’s wearing, but here’s her picture anyway.
Another flowy dress that hit below the knee – a trend for fall. Nicely mixed with the fur scarf and belt.
They say dark red lips are in for spring, but doesn’t candy apple red feel spring-ier? Also note her clutch and the diamond band on middle finger, seen several times during fashion week. Her friend rocks the chunky cocktail ring, still going strong.
A MJ rhinestone dress that Selma Blair also wore.
Proof that a guy can have long hair and a beard and still look polished and sophisticated.

Fashion Week SS08: Michael Kors

If so many spring collections have been “Deauville,” Michael Kors’ could be called The Swimmer, after the 1968 film starring Burt Lancaster. Preppy fashions abounded, from women’s Lilly Pulitzer-esque pink and green prints to men’s Bermuda shorts in outrageous (by preppy standards) brushed gold khaki. It was a fun collection in the classic American style.

The show was immensely popular and packed to capacity, so much so that late arrivals were turned away. Below, the guests.

Katrina Szish and Brant, is it you?
The eminently quotable Simon Doonan

Julia Restoin-Roitfeld and Carine Roitfeld

This lady is winning my vote for style icon of NY Fashion Week, Spring Season ’08. Each day she sports her very own distinct look, one that involves tunics and lots of color. Truly chic.
