On the prowl: Christina Pitanguy in a tiger-stripe jacket at the Stella McCartney show in Paris.
Such a sharp look on Karla Martinez de Salas – and believe it or not, she is about six months pregnant! The Miu Miu coat and top are a great boxy shape for maternity wear. The jeans aren’t actual maternity jeans, just low-cut J. Brands that she held onto, waiting for bell bottoms to come back. The wait is up!
Two great transitional outfits on models Ola Rudnicka and Maja Salamon that kept the fun spirit of summer going but introduced a bit of fall seriousness with polished accessories.
One good thing about super hot weather: nothing comes between you and your accessories. Helena Bordon wore a Snob Essentials crossbody bag over striped shorts and a striped crop top at the Prabal Gurung show.
I really like how Olivia Palermo styled this outfit, because when one is pulling a pair of (kind of loud) wide-legged black and white striped trousers out of one’s closet, one doesn’t necessarily think, now where is my equally attention-grabbing black and white striped shirt to go with? Yet somehow the whole thing comes together quite elegantly.
This week I shot street style photos at the Kingpins Show, a denim trade show, for Team Peter Stigter in New York. It was a cool experience, and you can see all the photos on the Kingpins Facebook page. From the myriad denim swatches hanging inside to the jeans on the guests, there were so many looks that underscored the ubiquity of denim today. Where would we be without Levi Strauss? On Washington Street, construction workers labored in stone washed jeans while a girl whizzed by in shredded jeans and Converse sneakers.
Teen Vogue‘s Amy Astley wore Celine to the Stella McCartney show in New York recently. The zig zag knit pieces from this collection have been super popular with the fashion set – warm enough for freezing office A/C, breathable enough for summer parties after work, and stylish all the time.
White suiting always looks elegant in summer, and I liked St. Vincent’s rock star interpretation of the theme: white sleeveless jacket over a striped bandeau top, and nothing else.
More black and white, this time on Stylebop’s Leila Yavari. This cut of this leather skirt is perfect for 2015 – slim but not quite a pencil cut, with an athletic-style gathered waist.
Loved this burst of yellow and white at the Kenzo show in Paris, plus the amazing architectural details on her sweater.
The skirt or dress and sneakers trend is one of the better ones in the past few years. A guest at the Chloe show in Paris mixed a nautically inspired striped skirt with white sneakers and a print top for an easy and chic way to get around the city.
One of my favorite looks on Helena Bordon during Paris fashion week. A striped maxi skirt or dress is a great base for spring layering, and I love how she mixed it with a sheer white off the shoulder sweater. Chloe green bag.
