Louis Vuitton’s traveling exhibit “Volez Voguez Voyager” opened last night in New York with a reception that attracted a very glamorous crowd. Zendaya arrived in a poet’s blouse and shimmering vest.
A cool look to ring in the fall, complete with a cinched military vest and leopard print clutch.
Ece Sukan brightened up a winter day outside the Calvin Klein show in all white.
Mix and match: Justin O’Shea combined a conservative three-piece suit with a wild paisley shirt and pale blue tie at the Maison Martin Margiela show.
Takin’ it to the streets: Chiara Ferragni wore a studded leather garage-type vest (vintage) to the Tommy Hilfiger show yesterday, an apt choice considering the industrial background at many of the shows during New York fashion week. And there are those Alexander Wang boots again!
Remember layering? Well, you might have to do that again soon. Model Bruna Tenorio did a great job of it at last September’s fashion week, mixing ripped jeans with a tailored vest and velvet jacket outside the shows.
Raf Simons’ tenure at Dior has been marked by the same bold color statements he employed at Jil Sander. Nicole Warne wore a brilliant saffron-colored silk Dior vest to the couture show in Paris. Look for longer hemlines in coats and vests come fall, as cropped jackets disappear in favor of a more flowing silhouette.
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.
A great vintage look in vivid coral on J.J. Martin at the Stella Jean show in Milan – and of course she was wearing flatform sandals before most of us were.
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.
One of the guys – Pier of Models Jam – thought it would be a good idea if we set up our own “photo pit” in the Tuileries to catch all the models as they went by. Pier and his Italian photographer comrades started with three chairs and a tripod. More photographers gathered alongside them, then a bunch of tourists formed at the sidelines, and before you know it we had created a sort of huge arena, or “studio,” as we called it, in the middle of the Tuileries. Justin O’Shea and Veronika Heilbrunner danced it up for the cameras. Such a fun moment.
