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.
We had a surprise sighting of model Grace Mahary outside the Rick Owens show, which she attended as a guest of the designer. Take a cue from her and go for leather pants in this cold weather. If there was ever a time for them, it’s now!
As New York winter kicks into high gear, it’s time to review how to conquer the weather with style. Model Anmari Botha layered a black leather jacket under a 3/4 sleeve coat and over a black turtleneck and necklace last year at the Jason Wu show. This is a particularly good idea when it’s cold enough to wear your leather jacket even indoors.
When the weather gets tough, leather vests and pants are an even tougher shield against the cold. At the Balmain show in Paris, a guest wore an embossed snakeskin-giraffe print leather vest and green leather leggings. Chic armor.
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.
This gorgeous pleated digital print dress from Givenchy is shaping up to be a big editorial favorite for fall 2014. Elina Halimi of Paris’ Kabuki wore it with a Barbara Bui leather vest and Givenchy flat sandals. Front view, after the jump. (more…)
Vogue Brazil‘s Christina Pitanguy is quite the glamazon presence on the fashion week scene. At the Tory Burch show in New York, she wore a fur-trimmed black leather jacket with a textured leather black mini and lace-up black boots. Sexy and chic.
Flashback to the first day of Fashion Month: WSJ’s David Thielebeule always strikes just the right balance of classic and on trend in menswear, layering a black and white burled coat over a black leather jacket, white button down and dark jeans.
With a new season comes a new obsession with coats and jackets. I loved this transitional look on a guest at the Comme des Garçons show in Paris. The blue silk coat is actually a blue leather jacket lined in faux fur and covered with silk. And once it gets warm enough, expect to see more bared ankles like hers.
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).
