Let’s hear it for the boys: WWD announced yesterday that the CFDA is starting up a separate men’s fashion week in New York this July. And why not? American men’s fashion is extremely influential around the globe. At the Peter Som show in NY, one of those influencers, Kyle Anderson of Marie Claire, wore an amazing MBMJ Nascar-inspired jacket, mesh shirt and a flight suit, partly undone and tied around his waist.
“These are my wings,” Garage Magazine’s Michelle Elie said of her leather Comme des Garçons halter and sleeves outside the Kenzo show in Paris. A huge supporter of designer Rei Kawakubo, Elie treats fashion like wearable art, not just something to wear. It’s always refreshing to see during fashion week. The shorts are Jil Sander.
Who would have thought that Fendi bags would still be so popular more than a decade after the Fendi baguette craze? And yet that seems to be the case, with many a fashionista toting them around this past fashion week season. They’re also a little more practical than investing in just the “monster” charm. Helena Bordon paired a Fendi bag with blue and white pajama style pants and an orange coral necklace at the Nina Ricci show in Paris. Full length shot, after the jump. (more…)
Welcome to Paris Fashion Week! The weather has cooled off a little here, which means the fashion flock is breaking out jackets, boots and pants. Brazil’s Christina Pitanguy wore black layers to yesterday’s Cedric Charlier show, mixing a black Prada jacket with Stella McCartney pants, shoes and bag by Saint Laurent and a crystal shark tooth necklace by a Brazilian designer.
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.
Yes, already we are back to leather jacket season and this was a particularly cool one on WSJ’s David Thiebeuele yesterday at Lincoln Center. He mixed it with a white tee, windowpane plaid pants and lace-up oxfords. Note that he did not go for sneakers – keeping it sophisticated with just the right ratio of casual to formal. You have to walk the line.
Here’s another great summer work outfit: nautical pants and striped red top on Vogue’s Virginia Smith.
I have been struggling with what to do about crop tops. Memories of Jennifer Aniston in red carpet appearances past have clouded my judgment somewhat, because this generation of crop tops is not the navel gazing version that plagued us in the early 2000s. Instead the new crop tops are often paired with high waisted pants and skirts, revealing just the tiniest bit of sexy skin, as Lucky editor Eva Chen did so effortlessly at the Dior Cruise show. I also love her work clutch, the sort of bag you see so often on fashion editors now.
The fashion world turned out for the Dior Cruise show yesterday in Brooklyn. Nina Garcia, fashion-forward as always, sported one of my favorite trends for 2014: cropped, wide legged pants. They looked great in floral quilting with heels and a black top.
