When the weather gets tough, leather vests and pants are an even tougher shield against the cold. At the Balmain show in Paris, a guest wore an embossed snakeskin-giraffe print leather vest and green leather leggings. Chic armor.
Vogue Australia’s Christine Centenera wore a Christopher Kane cut-out top and a slitted skirt that fell to mid-calf level to the Bottega Veneta show in Milan. This was the new hem length on many an editor at the spring/summer shows.
I like how Natalie Joos of Tales of Endearment can take new clothes, like this red mini dress by Valentino, and give them her own vintage-y spin. She brings out the ’50s styling in the dress by pairing it with a red headscarf and shades.
You might want to take advantage of the next few days of 70+ degree weather in NYC to wear all white, a trend that kept going in Paris long after August had ended. Turkish Vogue‘s Ece Sukan cut a sharp profile in a white cotton jacket and skirt with a side slit.
The end of Fashion Month is always bittersweet, but everyone celebrated Wednesday in Paris. Models Alexandra Hochguertel, Ysaunny Brito and Agne Konciute gamely held up a sign and then ran down the street.
One fun thing about the Chanel show is seeing all the clothes and bags outside the show in real life on real girls. Chiara Ferragni looked fab in a colorful Chanel dress and bag from the F/W 2014 supermarket-themed collection.
As fun as it can be to see oodles of Chanel and Fendi during fashion month, it’s also great to see some of our favorite editors wearing new designers. Joanna Hillman wore a colorful print Tanya Taylor dress to the Nina Ricci show in Paris.
One of the best things about getting dressed in warm weather: it can be as simple as just putting on a pretty dress. Work it for as long as you can, since fall is coming soon. Eleonora Carisi of Jou Jou Villeroy wore a pink snakeskin print Just Cavalli dress to the show in Milan.
At the Ralph Lauren show in New York, Shiona Turini used her street style clout to make a political point with her “they have names” tee – so names like Eric Garner and Trayvon Martin stay on people’s minds even when we are living in the bubble that is fashion week. Not only that, it actually looked chic.
Meanwhile, on the other side of town, the fashion got wild at the Jeremy Scott show. Sam and Cailli Beckerman of Beckerman Blog mixed Moschino bags and Sponge Bob visor with sequins and painted jeans. Cailli Beckerman actually painted the Beavis and Butthead cartoons on those jeans herself – impressive!
