No matter what the weather, most New Yorkers are outdoors for long stretches every day, commuting to work or school. A biker in Soho wore a skeleton face mask to combat the cold.
On another brutally cold day last February, this guest at the Victoria Beckham show brought out the big guns: a black leather shearling coat, incredibly warm no matter what the weather.
We are fully into sweater season now, but sweater dressing doesn’t have to be boring. Big graphic prints and fair isle patterns are showing up on the streets. On Madison Avenue, an oversize black, gray and white horse print sweater added graphic punch to a monochromatic outfit.
Love her offbeat mash-up of different shades of red and orange plus the mixture of textures: silk, knitwear, and flannel.
One way to keep winter clothes from getting boring is to seek out interesting textures. Love how this guest combined a black and white graphic popcorn sweater with a quilted A-line skirt at the Chanel show.
Vogue Turkey’s editor at large Ece Sukan mixed a white summer dress with a black turtleneck and snakeskin boots in one very cool outfit outside the Viktor & Rolf show.
There are designers, there are fashion shows and then there are the designers that fashion editors actually wear, and in that regard Prada has been a favorite for years now. Anna Dello Russo wore the bright orange pantsuit Prada runway look from the Fall 2012 collection to the Viktor & Rolf show in Paris. One look at this outfit tells you that pantsuits have definitely shed their dowdy image for fall 2012, reemerging as vibrant and fashion-forward.

Sweater weather is upon us, and the options are even better this year than years past thanks to advances in technology. The same technique that allowed for elaborate prints on spring 2012 blouses and pants is now being applied to fall 2012 sweaters, resulting in cool patterns like this animal print on Marina Larroude’s sweater at the Paris Carven show.
Though fashion industry insiders may be known for spearheading the next new thing, they don’t change out their entire wardrobes as soon as Labor Day ends. In fact, they often wear summer favorites into fall – and use them to showcase new fall purchases.
Here are some tips from Paris Fashion Week for how to gracefully transition from summer to fall looks, as seen on guests and models at the shows.
Model Natalia Vadianova caused quite a stir when she appeared at the Valentino show in Paris. Here she is exiting the show in a black brocade dress with a Dior bag. Love the fun yellow sunglasses she donned to shield herself from the paparazzi, Jackie O-style.
Raf Simons’ ready-to-wear debut at Dior was one of the most highly anticipated events at Paris Fashion Week, so guests really dressed to the max. This young woman wore a gorgeous blue print Dior gown to the show.
Model Hanne Gaby Odiele left the Kenzo show in two shades of green – mint and military. Loved how this outfit also played with bits of transparency with the transparent raincoat and bag.
Miroslava Mikheeva Duma put together a beautiful outfit for yesterday’s Hermes show in Paris and carried a green crocodile Hermes bag.
Anna Wintour wore head to toe Prada to the Carven show in Paris. The Prada fall 2012 collection, both the blacks and the graphic prints, has been a big favorite of editors here. It’s already being knocked off by certain chain stores, but there’s no substitute for the original.
