These two personify casual chic and I love how they’re color coordinated…on purpose or mere coincidence?
Sometimes couples seem to “match” and it feels too thought out and saccharine. And sometimes it just seems like they have similar tastes…these two seem to fall into the latter category. And I love that she’s wearing oxford shoes at night!
As much as I love seeing what the designers have created I love seeing what ideas from previous seasons have taken hold. Over the knee boots were big the last few seasons on the runway and they were everywhere on the audiences at the shows -and even on some of the girls working at the tents. (and on some of the runways although others had more just up-to-the-knee options) And for those who liked the look but didn’t have the boots the thigh high stockings with nylons beneath achieved the same effect admirably.
Last Thursday night (has it already been almost a week?) there was an opening in Tribeca of LA grafitti artist RETNA that looked like it was out of a film about Soho in the Eighties. The space was dark and cavernous and full of people that were both very stylish and somehow distinctly New York. The coat on the right caught my eye in a black sea and the graphic energy seemed to match the artwork. It also seems to be part of the new looser, graphic trend emerging that I’m calling boho chic. The girl on the left is also on trend with the fashion crowd in her over the knee platform boots. Something I’ve seen ALOT of in the tents: maybe because other than fashion week you might get mistaken as a hooker?
I’ve been going crazy trying to figure out my #NYFW schedule…but one show (and can we say after party?) that’s not to be missed is Jeremy Scott. And wouldn’t it be swell if THESE were in the swag bag? Hahaha! Not too likely…
If you have hot pink hair maybe black is the best solution. The jacket has a great asymmetry and she’s rocking the spiked heels!
We all saw a return to longer skirt lengths on the Spring 2011 runways this fall. And little by little I’m seeing this out at night as well. This girl appears to be trying to have the best of both worlds by working a longer lace dress over a smaller body-con black one. It’s an interesting alternative and one I haven’t seen before. The messily pulled back hair and filigreed belt buckle gives it a slight prairie girl vibe but she saved it from being too referential to country by avoiding cowboy boots and sticking with some great black platform booties.
I almost prefer the look from the back! Love the chunky heel, teddy bear backpack and especially the gun/headband! And her puffy shorts are positively cheeky. ;)
