Erica Pelosini and J.J. Martin wore matching prints from J.J.’s fashion line La Double J to the Marni show. The looks are part of a welcome trend to replicate vintage prints with modern materials, so there’s no more sweating away in thick polyester just so you can wear something cool and retro. For La Double J., Martin goes through troves of prints in an Italian archive, then licenses and reproduces them in Italy with eye-catching results.
A great shade of dusty rose on a print dress on Yasmin Sewell at the Tome show in NYC.
Caroline Issa in a pink print frock at the Giorgio Armani show. The cut outs at the shoulder are very on trend – we’ve seen a lot of this cut on silk dresses and tops, while it was previously mostly in knitwear.
Loved this clever gilded cage bag as carried by Sofie Valkiers at New York fashion week.
Nice end-of-summer looks on Alice Barbier and J.S. Roquer of J’aime Tout Chez Toi.
A mix of spring patterns was a nice harbinger of the warm weather to come.
Leopard-print pants mixed with a fur-trimmed jacket give a feline spin to this look on Giorgia Tordini at the Chanel couture show. The thing that takes it to the next level is the white shoes and bag in winter – a daring choice that really works.
Whimsical, colorful prints are going to be big this fall season, and we got a sneak preview of just how beautiful they can be with Sofia Sanchez de Betak’s star-printed look at the Valentino couture show in Paris.
How to do gingham now: Alexandra Golovanoff brought this classic check into 2016 with a a voluminous jumpsuit with puffed sleeves. Cute and modern. Also note the new silhouette for heels now: low and blocky.
As we get deep into shorts and T-shirt weather, let us take inspiration from Lynn Yaeger, who has been known to say that she doesn’t own any “normal” clothes. Summer dressing is a lot less boring with a mix of bohemian prints and lace.
It was good to see some familiar faces at Coachella looking just as good as they do in a land far, far away called Paris fashion week. Blogger Sofie Valkiers mixed some covetable Jimmy Choo over-the-knee suede boots with a Dodo Baror jumpsuit, YSL bag and embroidered denim jacket by Levis. Also digging the layered necklaces – yes, this trend is back again.
This was the last photo I snapped before I was detained by the Coachella authorities for taking fashion photos with a 35mm camera. Pretty ridiculous. But whatever, Sofie, it was worth it!
A rule of thumb for dressing with hippie flair at music festivals: if you’re going to do it, do it with polish. A guest at Coachella weekend one went for a silk floral top that conjured up traditional embroidery patterns and topped it off with red lipstick. It also doesn’t hurt if your fringe bag is YSL.
A cool dress in a sequin star print was just a little bit trippy and a whole lot chic at Coachella 2016 day one. Leather boots are the way to go for tromping across the dusty festival grounds. Also love the daring hair extensions.
At the Maison Martin Margiela show, Gilda Ambrosio wore two trends we’ve been seeing a lot of: velvet and choker necklaces. And the two things go together so well, in a Stevie Nicks kind of way.
