Tiffany Hsu at Miu Miu FW2016

Tiffany Hsu at Miu Miu FW2016

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.

Irene Kim at Jason Wu FW2015

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.

Gilda Ambrosio at Dries van Noten SS2016

Gilda Ambrosio at Dries van Noten SS2016

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.

Miroslava Duma at Gucci Cruise 2016

Miroslava Duma at Gucci Cruise 2016

 

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.

Yoyo Cau at Sacai FW2015

Yoyo Cao at Sacai FW2015

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.

Bye Bye, Stilettos: Jennifer Neyt at Tory Burch SS2015

Jennifer Neyt at Tory Burch SS2015

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.

Giovanna Battaglia at Diane von Furstenberg SS2015

Giovanna Battaglia at Diane von Furstenberg SS2015

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.

Sui He at Ralph Lauren Resort 2015

Sui He at Ralph Lauren Resort 2015

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.
