Let’s hear it for the boys: WWD announced yesterday that the CFDA is starting up a separate men’s fashion week in New York this July. And why not? American men’s fashion is extremely influential around the globe. At the Peter Som show in NY, one of those influencers, Kyle Anderson of Marie Claire, wore an amazing MBMJ Nascar-inspired jacket, mesh shirt and a flight suit, partly undone and tied around his waist.
I still love the classic combination of black and blue, especially in winter when all black gets so boring. Top model and actress Rosie Huntington-Whiteley wore a black and blue tuxedo jacket, black leather mini and black ankle boots and monogrammed navy blue bag to the Balmain show in Paris. It’s also amazing how she color-coordinated with her bodyguard – on purpose? The jet setter recently contributed a travel checklist to Who What Wear Daily that was totally personal and totally fascinating – check it out here.
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.
This was one of those “only at Paris Fashion Week” moments outside the Haider Ackerman show. The ever-chic stylist Catherine Baba made a grand exit by bike. She was one of several to wear all white this week while the weather’s still hot – plus of course a Chinese sun hat that’s become her signature look.
Welcome to Paris Fashion Week! The weather has cooled off a little here, which means the fashion flock is breaking out jackets, boots and pants. Brazil’s Christina Pitanguy wore black layers to yesterday’s Cedric Charlier show, mixing a black Prada jacket with Stella McCartney pants, shoes and bag by Saint Laurent and a crystal shark tooth necklace by a Brazilian designer.
Models off duty Hjunjeong Ji and Irene Kim both wore black and white to the Ralph Lauren show in New York – a great graphic punch.
Meanwhile, on the other side of town, the fashion got wild at the Jeremy Scott show. Sam and Cailli Beckerman of Beckerman Blog mixed Moschino bags and Sponge Bob visor with sequins and painted jeans. Cailli Beckerman actually painted the Beavis and Butthead cartoons on those jeans herself – impressive!
These boots were made for walkin’! Stylist Shea Marie of Peace Love Shea has just launched a line of shoes and boots with Steve Madden, including this sexy suede over-the-knee pair. She wore them with a leopard-print Equipment dress and white jacket with fringe sleeves to the Michael Kors show yesterday.
Yes, already we are back to leather jacket season and this was a particularly cool one on WSJ’s David Thiebeuele yesterday at Lincoln Center. He mixed it with a white tee, windowpane plaid pants and lace-up oxfords. Note that he did not go for sneakers – keeping it sophisticated with just the right ratio of casual to formal. You have to walk the line.
