The inimitable Joan Smalls exited the Fendi show in a cool burgundy look, one of several we’ve seen on the streets recently.
Bye bye, NY – I am heading to Milan and Paris for the next fashion weeks. The last time I traveled, I got stuck in Charles de Gaulle airport, but at least it was with super stylish model Irina Kravchenko. Here’s wishing everyone safe travels this fashion season.
Zlata! She has been one of our favorite models since she appeared on the scene a couple of years ago. She left the Creatures of the Wind show wearing a Prada shearling coat edged with brightly colored yellow and red fur, one of several bright furs we’ve seen on the streets recently. The shearling treatment here gives it a cool downtown ’70s edge.
Two cute and practical looks on models Sasha Luss and Kremi Otashliyska after the Chanel couture show in Paris. When prepping for Fashion Month, which begins this week and does not end until March 11th, I always look at what the models are wearing. Like us photographers, they are literally running between shows – but looking good doing it.
Soo Joo definitely seems to be one of Karl Lagerfeld’s favorite models of the moment, and it’s always great to see her after the Chanel show. After the couture show in Paris, she left wearing a swingy Chanel tweed coat, made a little bit more edgy with the addition of leather leggings. Also note! Turtleneck sweater.
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.
