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).
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.
