Blogger Clara Racz always wears a cool combination of vintage clothes, this time drawing on the Western theme that’s been in fashion with a fringed and beaded suede jacket, cowboy boots and red scarf tied at the neck.
A great ikat print jacket with culottes to the Ermanno Scervino show in Milan. This is how to ease into culottes while the weather is still cool: don’t be afraid to pair them with boots and socks, as long as you still have a flash of skin showing near the ankle.
Gilda Koral Flora of Thank God It’s Friday mixed red Givenchy boots with a Prada clutch at the Stella Jean show in Milan.
So far the big story in New York fashion week street style has been culottes. These wide-legged pants that hang like a skirt, originally created so Victorian women could do sporty things like go horseback riding, look decidedly modern. Man Repeller Leandra Medine wore a kelly green pair to the BCBG show yesterday, pairing them with a white down jacket and red bandana tied at the throat.
Two cute and practical looks on models Sasha Luss and Kremi Otashliyska after the Chanel couture show in Paris. When prepping for Fashion Month, which begins this week and does not end until March 11th, I always look at what the models are wearing. Like us photographers, they are literally running between shows – but looking good doing it.
It’s great to see the classic Dior silhouette on young new faces. Thai actress Araya Alberta Hargate emerged from her car in all Dior outside the couture show in Paris. Another view, after the jump. (more…)
Loved the graphic punch of this look on Elina Halimi: red, green and black and white stripes. The accessories are great too, especially the covetable Louis Vuitton bag.
I just got back from Paris, where I covered street style outside the Paris S/S 2015 couture shows for the New York Times Styles section – check out the slideshow of all my street style photos for them here! All of these photos appeared on Instagram at @nytimesfashion, where the Styles section publishes up-to-the minute fashion photography from around the world – definitely an account worth following. If you missed it, you can also follow me on Instagram at @gastrochic for yet more street style and food photos.
New in this street style slideshow is my photo of Carla Bruni attending one of the shows. The former first lady of France wore skin tight leather pants on the first day of Paris couture… what a way to make an entrance!
Sarah Ann Murray of The Rake magazine layered a plaid cape over a plaid jacket at the Schiaparelli couture show in Paris, to great visual effect. And also practical warmth, as mentioned in today’s New York Times Thursday Styles, where my photo of Irene Kim in layered coats illustrates the point!
Another cool detail we saw several times on Paris couture week attendees: decorative leather buckles at the neck of jackets and capes.
Love this sporty but urban look on model Elisabeth Erm after the Rochas show last winter. Again you can see when the mercury really drops, the fashion set layers a leather jacket underneath a winter coat.
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.
