Margaret Zhang at Chloe FW2016

 
Denim with lots of volume is a welcome change after years of skinny jeans and shrunken jackets. Margaret Zhang wore an oversize denim trench coat and wide-legged jeans to the Chloe show in Paris.

Jada Pinkett Smith at Chloe SS2016

Jada Pinkett Smith at Chloe SS2016

Jada Pinkett Smith wore a colorful yellow trench to the Chloe show, draping it over a white blouse with a long silk tie and slouchy black trousers that are all the rage now in Paris. My one critique of this outfit: too many accessories – the multiple bodyguards! Even Karlie Kloss evades her stalkers with just one, and there is a particular Chinese billionaire who often attends the shows with no security in sight. They are surely there somewhere, but much more subtle.

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.

If you can’t quite wrap your mind around spring yet, remember: the little black dress is seasonless. As seen on Caroline Vreeland at the Mugler show in Paris.

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.

Nasiba Adilova at Elie Saab Couture SS2015

Nasiba Adilova at Elie Saab Couture SS2015 - 3

We’re really seeing a lot of volume in the clothes outside the shows, especially the pants. It’s a complete 180 from the skinny rocker chick jeans that used to be a fashion staple at Paris fashion weeks. Nasiba Adilova wore a billowing gray silk overcoat and gray wide-legged trousers to the Elie Saab couture show.

Sunshine or Clouds: Anya Ziourova at Giambattista Valli SS2015

Anya Ziourova at Giambattista Valli SS2015

Anya Ziourova brought a clever clutch by the other prominent Anya in fashion – Anya Hindmarch – to the Giambattista Valli show in Paris. One side of the clutch has a cloud with rays of sun, the other a cloud with lightning bolt. Either way, Ziourova was prepared for the weather in a sharp white trench by J.W. Anderson.

Silk Scarves Are Back: Sasha Luss After Fendi

Sasha Luss After Fendi SS2015

Normcore is one thing, but the return of the brightly colored silk scarf  might provoke more dejà vu in some of us. This ’90s staple was seen loosely tied on many a fashionable neck at the Milan shows, which is nowhere near the Upper East Side BTW. After the Fendi show, model Sasha Luss paired hers with a trench and cuffed jeans.

Shala Monroque and the Eiffel Tower

This was one of my favorite “food and fashion” moments of the last women’s RTW season – the ever-glamorous Shala Monroque of Garage Magazine eating a beignet in front of the Eiffel Tower. She had arrived early for one of the shows and was just taking in the view. The vintage rabbit bag is a nod to her blog, Shala’s Rabbit Hole.

Simone Marchetti at Armani

La Repubblica‘s Simone Marchetti is one of the most dapper men on the European fashion scene. Camouflage has been a continuing motif for him, now updated in a pixelated houndtooth print version in this jacket, which I think is Valentino.

P.S. He is really fun to follow on Instagram if you want an inside look at the fashion world and, when he’s off duty, la dolce vita.
