In- Trenched

February 3, 2016

Designers are re-inventing the trench coat for their pre-fall collections, with a new play on proportion, color and details. Long,lean and cinched at the waist, these are coats you don’t already own, and should!

Sacai

Sacai takes the classic khaki trench and makes it edgy, through the use of straps, buckles, wind flaps and trapunto stitching. A touch of fur elevates the look.

John Galliano

John Galliano keeps it clean with a streamlined version of the trench coat. Hidden buttons and and leather cuffs make this minimal coat look chic.

Strict military details are softened by Camilla + Marc’s use of color and texture. The soft russet hue layers over a gauzy skirt of the same tone.

Alexander Wang

Soft fabric and an oversized shape make this trench a must have. Grommet details on the belt add a level of dimension to the look.

Burberry

The trench is iconic for Burberry, who somehow manage to update and upgrade it every season. Contrasting denim details and leather buttons do the trick.

Take Flight

January 27, 2016

Look out leather moto jacket…there is a new style in town and it is gaining momentum!
We’ve been seeing the flight jacket popping up for a few seasons now, but it looks like it could be poised to replace our beloved biker jackets as the item of choice.

French label Sacai paired the classic olive flight jacket with a lace skirt for their pre-fall collection.

Think Pink

December 19, 2012

Pink was the surprise color of the season, with hues ranging from strong and vibrant, to soft and pastel ruling the runways.

Even the softest of shades had a strength to them. This is not your average girlie pink!

Costume National used  hot pink for modern clothes with a sexy vibe:

Burberry mixed their rich pink with red, for a new silhouette with exaggerated round shoulders and a nipped waist:

Raf Simons popped his pale pink with a bright yellow lining and edgy black shorts for Christian Dior:

Caramelized

October 18, 2012

What’s not to love about caramel? It’s rich and adds a luxurious texture to everything; including clothing.

For spring 2013, designers showed caramel colored leathers that as crave worthy as their namesake sweet.

Akris showed head to toe caramel leather.

Both Fendi and Billy Reid paired their leather back to crisp white shirts.

Burberry went pants free with their short leather trench style jacket in new proportions.

Luxury leather goods maker Hermes layered a leather vest and cotton trench over white shorts.

As you start to develop your fall wardrobe, think about adding a little caramel leather in clothing or accessories. It’s an investment that will take you through the entire year.

Take a Shine to It

July 10, 2012

Metallic fabrics turned up on the runway this season, adding an unexpected sparkle to men’s fashion for Spring 2013.

Lanvin chose a classic platinum for their head to toe sportswear  looks.

Burberry took a shine to outerwear and shirts in colored metallic.

Neil Barrett paired a metallic leather jacket with easy khaki shorts.

Roberto Cavalli mixed matte and shine in monochromatic shades of lilac.

Cavalli also used silver pants as a foil to a classic white peacoat.

Futuristic fabrics add a modern and unexpected edge to familiar pieces. Are you ready to shine?

Never Say Never

April 17, 2012

Fashion is a funny thing. I remember many years ago being quoted in Instyle magazine that a “denim don’t” was wearing high heels or a dressy top with jeans. For those of you that know me well, that look has become a staple for me.

My former co-workers know that I firmly believe that animal prints belong only on animals, yet you have all seen my furry leopard booties that I wear constantly.

The mixing of stripes and prints has long been considered a fashion faux pas, but this season it’s considered a chic modern way to express your style.

As fashion evolves, and our eye adjusts, many of those old school rules get broken.

One thing I never expected to emerge as a trend is the animal sweater. You know the ones I’m talking about; the kind a distant relative with questionable taste might send you for a gift.  The ones you see in airports on people you might be inclined to make fun of ( don’t get all judge-y here, you know you do it too !) I can’t even tell you they’re back because I’m not sure they were ever fashionable in the first place.

This season, designers across the globe showed intarsia sweaters with animal motifs. Lions and tigers and bears, (oh my!) as well as the occasional horse or owl. The look is very ’80s in most cases, and skews toward the tacky side.

It’s not something I think I will be sporting come fall, but one thing I have learned after all these years in the fashion biz, is to never say never”.
