If a fashion blogger becomes a mother, what happens to her Instagram feed? WWD today reports on the “baby boom” among fashion bloggers, many of whom started out at age 22-24 and are now nearing 30. Seen here at Coach in September, Chiara Ferragni was several months pregnant at the time, unbeknownst to us, and now sonogram videos and other intimate family moments are interspersed with fashion posts. Many Instagram posts by Chiara and other bloggers like Chriselle Lim, Eva Chen and Arielle Charnas, however, differ from the previous generation’s endless stream of baby pics on Facebook. They’re carefully posed – or hilariously unscripted – moments with kids, who often happen to be wearing great outfits. Instagram’s own Eva Chen was the first-to-market on this trend. Enter the next wave of sponsorships…
On this stormy and snowy day, I am definitely having flashbacks to the very first morning of New York Fashion Week last February, when another snowstorm hit New York. Still editors and buyers trekked to the shows.
One of my favorite new models on the scene: Gisele Fox of Seattle, who closed the Prada show this season. Not only is she genuinely nice, she has a unique gamine look and great personal style.
Binx Walton, still very cool and low key after all her success, including starring in this season’s Celine ads. Her “have a good time” sweatshirt was a welcome sight in the hectic scene outside the Dior show.
A straw hat and bright yellow tunic over jeans and mules made for a great transitional look at NY Fashion Week in September.
Seen on the streets, a combination of vintage and new items that adds up to timeless chic.
Here’s one color trend we’re still seeing a lot of: bright yellow, as spotted on Elina Halimi at the Alberta Ferretti show. This perennially happy color is a nice way to welcome the summer.
Aimee Song wore the color combo of red and blue to the Chanel show in Paris. The chambray jacket and skirt are a great way to welcome the warmer weather – and these Chanel mules are particularly popular with the fashion crowd.
A good indicator of great style: An outfit from five years ago still looks au courant today, as with Caroline Seiber at the Chloe show in the Tuileries in March 2012.
One for the New York Times last week: Jian DeLeon headed out into a snow storm to get to the menswear shows. A baseball cap is actually a great idea for shielding the snow.
“Dressing down” does not have to mean wearing athleisure gear from head to toe, especially in New York City. This woman in Astor Place looked comfortable but chic in a open bouclé coat over a cool tee, pink knit hat, torn jeans and ankle boots.
A dramatic and monochromatic look with an ombre coat, seen outside the J. Crew presentation last winter.
Winter is coming to New York City, but that hasn’t deterred people from biking around town. A man wore a hat, scarf and gloves as he biked through Astor Place one morning.
