Trench coats are back in full force in a a variety of fabrics, especially plaids. This doesn’t mean you have to tone down what goes underneath, however: Elizabeth von Guttman wore hers with bright red track pants.
WWD’s Alex Badia mixed it up with different variations on pinstripes including a pinstriped trench at the Diane von Furstenberg show.
Model Hanne Gaby saddled up outside the Dior show yesterday in a red Comme des Garcons trench festooned with dozens of buckled belts. Her chauffeur was taking her right over to the Balenciaga show in style.
“Il pleut il mouille c’est la fête à la grenouille”: Vogue’s Virginia Smith wore a fantastic trench from the Gap that was part of their collaboration with Parisian store Merci in 2009.
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.
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.
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.
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.
A cool trench is a great way to brighten up a rainy day. Stylist Tina Leung of Tina Loves wore a colorful burgundy and blue wave print trench to the Balmain show in Paris.
Loved this elegant look in all white, including a white trench, on Nasiba Adilova at the Isabel Marant show in Paris.
Loved this spring look on Candela Novembre at the Emporio Armani show in Milan – especially her Fendi Iridia sandals. Detail shot of those after the jump. (more…)
Elle Ukraine editor Natalia Osadcha looked so elegant at all the shows in Milan today. She emerged from a cafe in a black leather coat, black and white heels and clutch draped with netting.
Loved this look on Brazil’s Helena Bordon at yesterday’s Issey Miyake show. Mixing ripped jeans and a quirky athletic-inspired tee with a floral trench and heels is daring, but it all comes together beautifully. She said that the jeans got so ripped that she had to safety pin them, but guess what? Ripped, safety-pinned jeans are definitely in fashion.
