Slide Show

June 3, 2016

The pitter patter of little feet will be coming to an office or restaurant near you. No, we don’t mean someone is expecting a baby. We’re talking about slides and mules, those late 90’s throwbacks that make a rather annoying sound as our feet slap about when we walk.

This time around, there are lots of variations to the theme. From pancake flats to chunky block heels, there’s one thing to be sure of… they’re back!

Low heels and closed pointed toes make these mules almost seasonless:

Wide crossed straps, embellishments and chunky soles take “shower shoes” to the next level.

Chunky heels and peep toes in colored suede, denim or floral prints modernize the mule and are the perfect warm weather option that’s not too bare:

If last year was about the Birkenstock, this summer will be all about the designer Dr. Scholl:

Whatever shape you choose, it’s time to slide into summer!

Shirting The Issue

September 17, 2015

New York Fashion Week is almost over, and amid the whirlwind of shows, parties and street style, a few trends are emerging that we can start to wear right now.

The crisp tailored shirt has proven to be influential this season, with designers re-tooling the classic into dresses, tunics and new variations on the ultimate topper to almost everything.

Biker Chic

March 20, 2013

Biker influences were all over the Fall 2013 runways this season. From takes on the classic Perfecto motorcycle jacket in black leather, to the loosely interpreted hybrids, it seems biker chic is a trend to watch.

Sacai was a much buzzed about collection during Paris fashion week. Designer Chitose Abe merged familiar elements with one another to create unique versions of fall favorites. The teal double-breasted princess coat with an inset leather front bearing classic motorcycle jacket details is a feminine and modern twist on the expected.

Consuelo Castiglioni took an austere approach at Marni this season, showing strict cuts and angular silhouettes. Her woolen coatdresses utilized the asymmetry and zipper details associated with the classic motorcycle jacket. Low slung belts and shiny boots completed the look.

Joseph Altuzarra layered a shrunken vinyl biker jacket over a trench coat, and worked the fabric into body con dresses for his eponymous collection. Both vinyl and leather were skillfully manipulated with other fabrics to create a young, sexy collection with lots of street cred.

Phillip Lim cited “girlfriends of bikers” as his inspiration for the season. His edgy collection was filled with motorcycle references, including zippers, asymmetry and channel quilting, often on leather. He softened and feminized the look, opting for softer colors and mixing it with more fluid fabrics.

Junya Watanabe took the classic Perfecto jacket on a journey, as he mixed it with plaids, tweeds and denim to create a collection of punk inspired clothing with a thrift shop vibe.

At Fendi, Karl Lagerfeld stepped away from the fur just long enough to craft a cobalt blue leather motorcycle jacket with a high-low hemline. Layered over a white dress with thigh high slits, and shown with contrasting hot pants and over-the-knee stockings, the jacket added an urban air of sophistication to the look.

Etro, the Italian house known for its rich paisley patterns and luxe fabrications, got on the biker bandwagon, showing long and lean leather pieces over plaid. The double layer effects and fur trim, added a sleek modern air to the collection.

Highly hyped designer Fausto Puglisi mixed two of the season’s biggest trends: biker and plaid, in his mixed media jacket. Paying homage to the upcoming Met Costume Institute’s show entitled “Punk: Chaos to Couture”, Puglisi managed to make the obvious look new and exciting. By combining his motorcycle details with tartan, as well as crystal and metal embellishments, he rebelled against the expected, creating his own style revolution.

Urban Garden

December 6, 2012

Delicate florals added a feminine touch to fashion for spring. Often mixed with other patterns, these sweet florals had a street-wise edge when tailored into modern items.

Overall Approach

September 25, 2012

Overalls are making a comeback next spring,with feminine iterations seen all over the catwalks.

Soft, feminine versions take the work wear staple to another level.

Kinder Aggugini showed silk floral printed overalls with a charming gingham blouse.

Henry Holland showed a lace trimmed floral version for his House of Holland collection.

Phillip Lim took an edgier approach in bold colors worn bare, with a striped cover-up and ankle boots.

White Space

May 8, 2012

There is an age-old rule of fashion that declares, “ White should not be worn before Memorial Day or after Labor Day.” For decades, women adhered to this, as if it were gospel. Until now.

This season, many designers showed white leather shoes and handbags for winter, causing a clash of seasonality and fashion etiquette that somehow looks very modern.

Phillip Lim showed white t-strap dancing shoes with heavy winter woolens. Worn with bare legs, or dark tights, the contradiction of style looks very fresh and youthful.

J.Mendel, known for his luxe sophisticated sportswear and furs, showed creamy winter whites layered head to toe. His white leather shoes and bags were the perfect accompaniment.

Indie design favorite, Alexander Wang also embraced the rule-bending, by adding an oversized white bag to this edgy black and white look.

As our weather patterns spiral out of control, predicting what is appropriate to wear is nearly impossible. Why not just roll with it, and let your style be the guiding force, rather than a confused weather-person, or an outdated notion of what is proper?
