Crushed velvet on Olivia Palermo. This velvet thing is happening! It looks particularly good in saturated colors like this emerald green.
At the Sies Marjan show in NYC, Aimee Song wore a dress in crushed velvet with white boots and fishnet stockings, several trends we would see throughout fashion month. For fishnets, the larger the knit, the better.
A beautiful blue velvet belted suit on Deena Abdulaziz at the Dior couture show.
Loved the details in this look on Irene Kim at Sacai: the strappy black leather overalls, the cutouts in the sweater, and the crushed velvet boots. Even better: her outfit matches her hair!
Natasha Zinko brought a pop of color to the Elie Saab couture show in Paris – and a ’70s look replete with purple glasses and blouse and yellow velvet pants. Expect more wild colors this fall as traditional autumn colors give way to the whole rainbow.
At the Maison Martin Margiela show, Gilda Ambrosio wore two trends we’ve been seeing a lot of: velvet and choker necklaces. And the two things go together so well, in a Stevie Nicks kind of way.
JJ Martin, who just started a new website about vintage clothing and beautiful Milan interior design, La Double J, wore a vintage floral print velvet coat to the first day of shows.
Love the saturated moss green of her velvet blazer and how it plays off the green in her tweed pants. Also, burgundy and green is one of my favorite color combinations for fall.
Another twist on the colorblocked dress, this time in various shades of blue denim, cotton and velvet on a model off duty after the Armani Privé show.
Whenever I go to parties, I’m secretly on the lookout for fashion inspiration from the other guests. Parisa, who works for H&M, mastered the sartorial mix of work and play at the H&M Conscious Collection party last week. The loose, velvet flocked black jacket has a boho flair for evening, but the crisp white blouse and printed pants (both H&M) are perfectly suitable for work. Most importantly: black ankle boots that have a heel but not too high a heel. You want to be able to work the party!
I loved the combination of colors and textures on Aussie photographer and blogger Candice Lake at Chanel. The Hockley London fur is a nice flash of cheerful yellow on an overcast day, and the black velvet skirt is the perfect counterpart. Plus: red lipstick is the way to go with a bright coat.
