One from the archives: Miroslava Duma in a green tween Lanvin tweed top and miniskirt. Love how she mixed it with an army green jacket, lots of bracelets and a delicious little Chanel bag.
When dressing for NY Fashion Week, it’s important for us street style photographers to remember that we must spend a lot of time outside, not just dashing from the warmth of a chauffeured car to a fashion show. Therefore I am much more likely to take cues from stylish photogs like Garance Doré, who always mixes high fashion with a good dose of practicality, as with this fur-lined military parka. The pink lipstick is a nice girly touch.
The fashion crowd looked stylish even in bad weather outside the Rochas show, where the skies opened up just as everyone was arriving. One guest wore a khaki jacket embellished with lots of gold buttons and a pencil skirt in burgundy, a particular popular color this fall.
Since the original huge American music festival was Woodstock, festival fashion often follows the hippie beat of that era. But as a New Yorker, I liked seeing the edgier looks at Bonnaroo. Military boots like Doc Martens are perfect for tackling dust or mud, and not every print has to be paisley. Try leopard!
Handsome polo star Nacho Figueras came to yesterday’s Ralph Lauren show, but the fashion crowd was perhaps even more smitten with his gorgeous wife Delfina Blaquier, photographer, model and star of Ralph Lauren’s Romance campaign. She wore a beautiful embroidered jacket, taupe Hermes bag and open toe lace-up boots. More shots after the jump. (more…)
Despite the no-shoes mandate, many of the volunteers at the recent One Day Without Shoes charity event still dressed quite fashionably. Military jackets continue to be a great transitional option each spring, a practical outer layer worn here with a Marc by Marc Jacobs bag and striped sailor top.
As much as we love coats – camel coats, winter white coats, print coats, belted coats – it is the parka that gets the most play when the weather drops below freezing. But the Norma Kamali sleeping-bag style of years past has been feminized. This winter’s parkas, like this one in army green, often feature cinched waists, even flared skirts. Best of all, they’re fabulously warm.
Expect to see more tulle skirts in the coming months, thanks to the influence of Black Swan and Rodarte.
This super feminine piece is even more interesting when paired with a masculine military jacket and combat boots.
