The weather feels a little like fall today and as such we’re going to do some trend spotting for September. Velvet was on the checklists of some major retailers this past fashion month – look for more of it in stores come fall. Tiffany Hsu wore a dramatic ruched red velvet dress to the Miu Miu show in Paris.
Candela Novembre was one of several showgoers we’ve seen this week to wear metallic silver pants, adding some flash to a gray day.
It was an alternately windy, freezing, snowy and rainy New York Fashion Week this February, but fashion week guests survived it in style. At the Jason Wu show, Irene Kim topped a gold pleated skirt with a fluffy white shearling coat.
The brand Loewe is accumulating a cult following among the fashion set. Actress Hilary Tsui attended the show yesterday in a metallic Loewe dress, flared pants, and Loewe bag and sunglasses.
Street style-wise, this has been the season of Gilda. The Italian fashionista has tapped into the ’70s zeitgeist that’s been percolating since Alessandro Michele took over at Gucci. Her center part and retro shades, personal style trademarks of hers for years already, add to a sexy, louche look that’s also beautifully put together.
Bao Bao Wan attended the Dior couture show in a shimmering metallic cocktail dress and sky-high platform wedges.
I must say I was somewhat skeptical of Alessandro Michele’s first collection for Gucci – the fall/winter collection he showed on the runway this past February. With so many vintage-y, even granny-like quirks, it was as if Bushwick had landed in Milan. But when you see the clothes in motion, his vision becomes clear, and the true luxury of the fabrics and cut shines through – as seen on Miroslava Duma at the Gucci Cruise show yesterday in New York. This copper-colored dress from the fall 2015 collection has just the right combination of quirk and classic feminine beauty. The clothes on the resort runway – which was actually a closed-off West 22nd Street – were equally fluid and graceful.
Loved this interpretation of trends on Yoyo Cao that’s current without being over the top: a bolero jacket and hat with layered necklaces and a ’70s-style patchwork denim maxi skirt.
Legendary fashion writer Lynn Yaeger displayed her deft hand at mixing high and low at the Rick Owens show, where she topped off a black tulle Comme des Garcons shift with a gold metallic cardigan by Joe Fresh.
When we saw the editors of French Vogue in lower heels during couture week, we knew major change was afoot. Long known for their sky-high stilettos and skinny jeans, French Voguettes like Jennifer Neyt have moved to a more relaxed silhouette of slouchy pants and heels no higher than three inches tall. Take note! A look at those heels, after the jump.
This has been a uniform of sorts for some of us women pounding the streets during New York fashion week, but of course Giovanna Battaglia does it particularly well: graphic tee, tennis-esque skirt and sneakers. I love all the gold going on in this outfit. Silver and gold are turning out to be key shades for accessories for fall – not just jewelry but also shoes and bags.
It was great to see Elena Perminova back on the scene at Paris Couture. At the Christian Dior show on Tuesday, she mixed a silver silk dress with a classic boater hat and metallic sunglasses – a chic combination of old and new for summer.
It was so exciting to see top model Sui He, now number 13 in the world, exiting the Ralph Lauren show in NYC. I remember photographing her when she just hit the scene. Her June look is a harbinger for what we may see on models at Paris Haute Couture in July: all denim with some sweet kicks: metallic Nike Air Max 1 sneakers in “Party,” now sold out at Barneys. Green Givenchy bag. Click through for a close up. (more…)
At the Roberto Cavalli show in Milan, Eleonora Carisi wore a great leather jacket with sleeves done up in paillettes in a snakeskin pattern. Also love the interplay between mirrored sunglass, silver clutch and silver capped heels.
The sun is out – better get prepared! Metallic shorts and sunglasses deflected all those rays on a beautifully sunny day outside the Roberto Cavalli show in Milan
