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.
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!
A belted coat is an elegant way to fend off the cold. Model Auguste Abeliunaite paired a gray tie-waist coat with black leather pants, boots and a big Prada bag after the Prabal Gurung show in New York.
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.
Colorful knits can be like visual vitamin C during a long winter and make great holiday gifts. Model Xiao Wen Ju wore a pink, blue and black sweater, scarf and top by Kenzo after walking the show in Paris.
The cobalt blue color that Stella McCartney popularized does not seem to be going away anytime soon – in fact it could soon be a welcome pick-me-up during winter. Irene Kim of Irene Is Good wore a cobalt blue fur by Bedni and an Ann Demeulemeester top to the Ann Demeulemeester show in Paris.
Model and musician Jamie Bochert wore a plaid Prada dress after walking the Bottega Veneta show in Milan. The once-controversial grunge look has now become a timeless classic.
Model Soo Joo Park left the Chanel show clad in Chanel, including a double C printed bandana-style silk scarf. Bandana motifs have been big both at Chanel and Saint Laurent, and if you don’t have the budget for one of these designs, you can always get in on the trend with just a regular black and white paisley-print bandana, $2.99 at Ricky’s.
The end of Fashion Month is always bittersweet, but everyone celebrated Wednesday in Paris. Models Alexandra Hochguertel, Ysaunny Brito and Agne Konciute gamely held up a sign and then ran down the street.
Normcore is one thing, but the return of the brightly colored silk scarf might provoke more dejà vu in some of us. This ’90s staple was seen loosely tied on many a fashionable neck at the Milan shows, which is nowhere near the Upper East Side BTW. After the Fendi show, model Sasha Luss paired hers with a trench and cuffed jeans.
Another over-the-knee look, this time with knee socks on model Molly Bair right after the Prada show in Milan. Needless to say, it helps if you have legs up to here.
Top model Aymeline Valade said to her friend when she was leaving Fendi: I always have a bike. It’s the easiest way to get around.
Model Katlin Aas wore a polished and chic version of the rocker chick look after walking the Michael Kors show. Long layers on top are key for fall, as are low heeled boots like these.
More black and white! Obviously something is in the air. Model Saskia de Brauw wore a black cotton suit with white trim after the Marc Jacobs show. Love the sheer panel and also her mussed hair.
Little did we know when we spotted new model Binx Walton after the Chanel fall ready-to-wear show in Paris that she would be part of the label’s fall ad campaign as shot by Karl Lagerfeld. She layered an oversize black sweater with a silver padlock necklace and a sheer purple maxi skirt and mid-calf boots – a look that went well with the hair and makeup from the Chanel show. Close-up, after the jump. (more…)
