Two big trends we saw at Coachella: hip bags a.k.a. fanny packs – logical because they’re a hands-free way to carry your stuff while you’re at a concert – but also ruffles, which was more surprising to me. Big feminine ruffles were everywhere on tops and dresses, perhaps stemming from the prairie chic on the runways for spring 2015.
There’s nothing like spending a few days in the beautiful California desert to help you fast forward to summer. I just got back from Coachella, where I was shooting fashion for the New York Times Styles section Instagram – @nytimesfashion – check out the whole slideshow of Coachella style here. There were too many good looks to include them all though, so you’ll see more Coachella fashion on Gastro Chic! Like this sheer ivory silk dress worn as a bikini coverup with a gaucho hat, fringe bag and high tops.
Looking at photos of festival fashion, I keep coming back to the spring Chloe collection and its pretty prairie chic, which is spot-on for spring 2015. Anya Ziourova wore a ruffled, floral and polka dot print Chloe maxi dress to the show in Paris.
I love seeing the Chanel models actually in Chanel in real life. Sasha Luss mixed a red and black tweed Chanel dress with a biker jacket, tights and boots, and a big fur hat. Another beauty shot of the Chanel cat-eye makeup, after the jump. (more…)
Charlotte Free, a true free spirit among models, after the Chanel show. I wish she had been at the punk-themed Met Ball – she would have been one of the only guests dressed appropriately. Follow her on Instagram for things like photos of her with Marilyn Manson.
During Fashion Month it’s easy to overlook the actual photographers’ street style when some are dressed just as well as our show-going subjects. Marianne Theodorsen of the Style Devil wore a charming boater hat, collared shirt and white and ecru pleated skirt to shoot outside the shows in Paris yesterday. Modern Madeleine.
These two buyers from Toronto’s Kastor & Pollux dressed in an eclectic mix of fast fashion from shops like H&M, yet managed to pull it all together as one coordinated pink and black polka dot look. The cute knit hat on Bianca is by RK Knits.
Bye bye, NY – I am heading to Milan and Paris for the next fashion weeks. The last time I traveled, I got stuck in Charles de Gaulle airport, but at least it was with super stylish model Irina Kravchenko. Here’s wishing everyone safe travels this fashion season.
A cool urban look in black leather and stripes in primary colors on Shine by Three‘s Margaret Zhang outside the Marc by Marc Jacobs show. The striped top gets a little softness from the turtleneck sweater underneath.
As you might expect, big, chunky knitwear was a popular choice during this frigid New York fashion week. Blogger Linda Tol wore a great cable knit sweater by I Love Mr. Mittens to the Ralph Lauren show in New York.
