Reporting for Duty: Yoyo Cao at Loewe SS2017

Yoyo Cao at Loewe SS2017

Yoyo Cao arrived at the Loewe show in a cadet cap and Prince of Wales plaid pants suit. Surprisingly popular among fashion week guests, pant suits have shed their dowdy image and now feature updated, flattering cuts and colors that would work both in and out of the office.

Remixing the Classics: Natasha Goldenberg at Carven SS2017

Natasha Goldenberg at Carven SS2017

Forest green and Prince of Wales plaid are classics for fall, but the style is new on Natasha Goldenberg at the Carven show in Paris. Look for more – much more! – of the broad shoulder cut of this jacket and midi length of the skirt – they were all over the runways for spring.

Samantha Angelo at Chloe SS2016

Samantha Angelo at Chloe SS2016

New blogger Samantha Angelo of The Eye Travels turned heads this fashion week season with her statuesque beauty and flair for mixing different pieces. Outside the Chloe show in Paris, she belted a long Dries Van Noten coat, part trench and part duster, over an Acne dress with a pointed collar and Mary Jane-style Charlotte Olympia shoes. The military subtext to the outfit may especially work for another reason: she actually served in the Marines as a clarinetist in the United States Marine Band! Certainly a multi-talented player on the fashion scene.

A good example of how the 70s are coming back in a way that’s quirky but not at all cheesy. Those glasses!

Expert Layering: Belted Trench Coat at Michael Kors FW2015

Belted Trench Coat, Outside Michael Kors

One thing the cold weather elicited in New York fashion week guests was a flair for layering. A guest at the Michael Kors show layered a turtleneck and plaid dress under a trench coat, but kept it from getting too conservative by cinching her coat with a leather belt and adding a nose ring and multiple earrings. Also: necklaces over turtlenecks are A Thing now. Celine bag.

Sarah Ann Murray at Schiaparelli Couture SS2015

Sarah Ann Murray at Schiaparelli SS2015

 

Sarah Ann Murray of The Rake magazine layered a plaid cape over a plaid jacket at the Schiaparelli couture show in Paris, to great visual effect. And also practical warmth, as mentioned in today’s New York Times Thursday Styles, where my photo of Irene Kim in layered coats illustrates the point!

Another cool detail we saw several times on Paris couture week attendees: decorative leather buckles at the neck of jackets and capes.

Natalya Bogacheva at Rick Owens SS2015

Natalya Bogacheva at Rick Owens SS2015

Moi, je ne suis pas Charlie.

I am not nearly as daring or provocative as the cartoonists and editors behind Charlie Hebdo. But like many I am drawn to the provocateurs. Artists and free thinkers are indelibly associated with the city of Paris and should be always. In the world of fashion they would be the punks or those who dare to wear the crazy things no one else would. At the Rick Owens show, Natalya Bogacheva was one of them, donning Thom Browne’s rabbit ears hat and mask to twirl in front of the Eiffel Tower. Vive la Paris.
