Fei Fei Sun is definitely one of the most fashion-forward models in an industry where women tend to throw on jeans and T-shirts for their off duty hours. She left the Roberto Cavalli show in argyle tights, a denim and leather studded jacket, plaid kilt and fur moccasins – a cool post-punk look.
Elle Ukraine editor Natalia Osadcha looked so elegant at all the shows in Milan today. She emerged from a cafe in a black leather coat, black and white heels and clutch draped with netting.
Model Katlin Aas has a cool, laid back style that’s casual but never haphazard. In Milan she conquered the cold with lots of layers under a leather jacket, an oversize scarf and beanie hat. Also like how she has styled the lace-up boots with wool socks for an outdoorsy look (also practical in the snow).
Italian blogger Gilda Koral Flora of Thank God It’s Friday wore a cool sculptural Rick Owens jacket to the designer’s show in Paris.
New model Zlata Mangafic was one of the most widely booked models during the past fashion week season and always a pleasure to encounter outside the shows. Her look reminds me of Chanel muse and model Stella Tennant, and like Ms. Tennant, she has laid-back but elegant personal style. After walking the Chanel show, Zlata left the Grand Palais in a green Edun leather jacket, Derek Lam tweed sequin skirt and Celine bag.
Vivid prints like this one are a great way to liven up a winter outfit. And that is actually not a fur jacket but a fur vest worn over a leather jacket, an excellent layering technique.
Here are more of the new pants for you, looser, expertly tailored, and a little bit cropped in this case. Another development seen on the spring runways as well as the streets: playing with volume in the back of jackets and tops. Designers like Sacai have taken a cue from traditional Japanese garb and added an unexpected pouf to the back of jackets and tops, as on this one. Click through to see the jacket in profile. (more…)
The ever-stylish Elina Halimi of Kabuki Paris swished by the Alberta Ferretti show in Milan in a red and blue striped Dries van Noten skirt with fringe, beaded sweatshirt, gold booties and a motorcycle jacket.
A really cool outfit outside the Armani show this morning in Milan. I like how she has paired the black skater skirt with a sheer black top under a white leather vest to add some feminine floatiness to the look. And here again we see the new over-the-ankle type boots that will be big for fall, here in snappy black and white.
One supposed “rule” of the new over-the-ankle boots is that you can’t wear them with miniskirts. Well guess what: If you have legs like Joan Smalls, you can wear them with anything. The top model exited the Gucci show in all black, including a skater skirt and sheer mesh top.
Welcome to Milan fashion week! First show: Gucci. We’ve seen a lot of black and white on the streets this season but not a lot of gray, which may be why this elegant and sporty look in gray and white seemed like such a breath of fresh air. Also note the boots – just above the ankle is the way to go for fall.
A great rainy day look on Zanna Roberts Rassi, who mixed a bright red maxi skirt with chunky heel black boots – the perfect balance of practicality and style.
More Throwback Thursdays: Sometimes I look back at old photos and realize I didn’t know what I had, like this photo of Karlie Kloss from Valentine’s Day in 2011. It was before she hit megastardom as a model, and though the bag is Dior, I love how she’s just in regular jeans and scuffed up boots.
