Garage Magazine‘s Michelle Elie is never afraid to mix it up, pairing a black and white polka dot Comme des Garçons top with black and white polka dot Celine pants and some fabulous Viktor & Rolf platforms in black and white stripes. A shot of those shoes, after the jump. (more…)
Colorblocking has gone black and white for fall, with designers like Viktor & Rolf issuing dresses, pants and jackets in bold black and white sections. Tina Leung wore a suit by the designers on the day of their couture show in Paris.
Bye bye, Paris! Couture week is officially over, but we have many more photos to come. Model Magda Laguinge waved goodbye til the next fashion week season (a mere 10 weeks away…!) outside the Viktor & Rolf couture show.
In a world where there’s so much pressure for designers to take the commercial route, putting out season after season of “safe” clothes guaranteed to move at retail, Rei Kawakubo’s Comme des Garçons is an inspiration. Ruched, ruffled, or even dipped in paint, her creations are unusual and intricate. But the line has a cult following, as evidenced by the line that began forming at 3:30am this past weekend in NYC for a Comme des Garçons sale. Here Garage editor Michelle Elie wears Comme des Garcons at the Viktor & Rolf show in Paris.
Fashion blogger and Luxembourger Anne Catherine Frey wore a Carven dress and Sandro biker jacket to the Viktor & Rolf show in Paris. I love these pale blues for the beginning of spring. Detail shot of the dress, which features a map of Paris, after the jump. (more…)
Keep an eye out for the newly-reinvigorated brand Kenzo. Ever since Opening Ceremony’s Humberto Leon and Carol Lim took the helm as creative directors last year, Kenzo has been gaining visibility in editorial and ad pages – and also in real life on fashion industry folk. We saw numerous Kenzo sweatshirts on the editors this past fashion week, and at the Viktor & Rolf show in the Tuileries, Leigh Lezark work an intricately pleated Kenzo dress that looked particularly beautiful in motion.
Vogue Turkey’s editor at large Ece Sukan mixed a white summer dress with a black turtleneck and snakeskin boots in one very cool outfit outside the Viktor & Rolf show.
There are designers, there are fashion shows and then there are the designers that fashion editors actually wear, and in that regard Prada has been a favorite for years now. Anna Dello Russo wore the bright orange pantsuit Prada runway look from the Fall 2012 collection to the Viktor & Rolf show in Paris. One look at this outfit tells you that pantsuits have definitely shed their dowdy image for fall 2012, reemerging as vibrant and fashion-forward.

All white and polka dots: two themes that are very much of the moment for spring 2012. Love how she contrasts the black polka dot stockings with the white feathered skirt, sheer white blouse and white leather biker vest. The bright clutch and iPhone and red lipstick are the icing on the cake.
Here’s some Easter inspiration for you: the fashion crowd has been going wild for these adorable bunny ear iPhone cases by Rabito. Viviana Volpicella carried one and accessorized with lots of bracelets outside the Viktor & Rolf show in Paris. Full length shot of her, after the jump. (more…)
Perhaps no other model caused as much of a stir this fashion week as recently minted Victoria’s Secret angel Karlie Kloss. Her height, perfect proportions and almost supernaturally good looks made her a real star. Note to “normal” girls though: Don’t even try to look like Karlie Kloss. She was just beamed down from heaven this way.
Karlie exited the Viktor & Rolf show in a denim on denim look that’s been gaining popularity. For the best style, pair two contrasting shades of blue. The motorcycle boots and jacket may be classic Americana, but the bag is Chanel. Super cool super model.
Caroline Issa of Tank Magazine wore a number of great outfits over Paris fashion week, but this one from the Viktor & Rolf show has to be my favorite. I love the elaborate embroidery on this black dress, very 1940s, like the vintage needlepoint bag Ulyana Sergeenko carried earlier in the week. (You can find lots of them on eBay if you’re in the market.)
Leigh Lezark looked smoking hot walking into the Tuileries in a dress for the Viktor & Rolf show in a dress by the designer duo. It’s a fabulous, body-con sportswear look that has been big on the runways for Spring 2012 too.
I never get tired of exquisitely tailored white shirts or shirtdresses – like this one on a model off duty in the Tuileries.
Update: She is Elena Perminov.
