In Living Color – I spotted blogger / designer Chiara Ferragni in New York, wearing her own shoe line and these are the velvet cate slip-ons, seen below. The Italian blogger, now living in LA, was one of the first few bloggers approached to design. Her brand, The Blonde Salad is now so huge that she has a TBS crew. (I guess you really know you’ve made it when you’ve been Simpsonized). She’s adorable and is also wearing Calvin Klein’s crop top and trousers as she headed into his NYFW fashion show. || Oh – you can catch my past video of Chiara in this post or on youtube.
As for me, I just finished up a Bravo series that premieres in January, which might explain the sparse postings, but more NYC + LA style coming right up!
Tucked Behind – I was having lunch at NYC’s Spice Market in the Meatpacking District when I spotted her great look with the crumpled boyfriend button down and blunt bangs. Gotta love that she tucked the back and not the front, plus the subtle detail in the pinstriped pants. Love this look. She’s wearing a tibi wristband, so she must’ve just left their fashion show.
Flicker - Pajama Prints are still alive and well, spotted on Danish model Caroline Brasch Nielsen right after she walked Alexander Wang’s show at New York Fashion Week in September. I have a few other sightings from former stories, listed below. Caroline was discovered in a pizza parlor in Copenhagen when she was 15 and is roommates with fellow Danish model Josefine Skriver. Shhh, I’ve been busy working on a Bravo show, but I’ll be back soon with more trends – some good, bad – and maybe even ugly. You be the judge.
Off Kilter Earrings are a Thing – I spotted stylist and fashion consultant, Kate Foley, heading into Yigal Azrouel’s New York Fashion Week show. (She’s wearing the designer’s separates and here’s the box pleat skirt). I loved her signature red lipstick and clutches are my thing (witnessed here, here and here mkaaay), but it’s the asymmetrical earrings that I had to stop and appreciate. Kind of love this subtle trend.
I also spotted one of this Brit’s BFF’s, in a similar shot, here.
Related Stories – I was once obsessed with NYC’s array of Little Black Dresses the summer I lived there and spotted these in Nolita:
Zip It - I spotted Shopbop’s Fashion Director, Elle Strauss, at New York Fashion Week and liked the little details in her look, especially that tweed Dion Lee skirt with that kicky zipper exposed in the back. Exposed and asymmetrical zippers seemed to be trending this last NYFW – and this skirt’s sides are actually long. (Elle was one of my first fashion week finds, way back when, spotted here). She’s also wearing Pamela Love spiked earrings, Italia Independent studded shades, a 3.1 Phillip Lim Boston Satchel and Vida Fede bracelets.
Must be fun to have a job that probably comes with an infinite closet. Meet one of Elle’s favorite British blondes here and on @stylespotting.
British Beauties – I spotted Daisy Lowe and Alexa Chung after the Marc by Marc Jacobs show and loved their spunk. I also love that the tuxedo striped pant in general is making a comeback. I’ll show you one of my favorite fashion photographers sporting the look in an upcoming post.
I had so much fun shooting New York Fashion Week again and spotted some fun and surprising trends, interesting interpretations of the same look, a lot denim disparity and, as expected, some colorful personalities. I have so much to share, so stay tuned and I’ll be posting a lot here and instagram.
Shooting around any Marc Jacobs show has to be one of my favorite things and I snapped Daisy and Alexa after the Marc by Marc Jacobs show at Pier 94. (I am dying to show you the army of people at the show, pledging their allegiance to the new creative team’s motocross look. It was pretty insane, but it’s so many images that I first have to show you a higher volume of shorter stories or I will never leave my house.)
Sure, I have to say that this time around, it was more satisfying spotting the new faces and smarter styles, but especially everyone’s interpretation of specific trends. To me, it’s always been much less about the label and more about the look…
Bryanboy’s Beady Beard - Greetings from New York Fashion Week SS 2015. I just finished working on a TV series in the South and decided to fly to NYC before settling back into LA. I’m shooting NYFW for a few days and have spotted some fun trends that seem a little more relatable and grounded this time around, aside from the more grandiose style statements, witnessed above. I spotted Bryanboy and his beady smile before Yigal Azrouël’s show and he was also wearing a statement T-shirt the day before that was pretty funny. I’m having a blast, have spotted some favorite faces and can’t wait to share more. Back soon! @stylespotting
Got it Covered – I spotted Alexia on Abbot Kinney Blvd and she looked so cute in the perfect denim coveralls that designer Etienne Marcel is calling a romper. (I’m really loving this designer, btw). You can pick up these cute Carter Chambray coveralls on the designer’s website and at Free People. I especially love Alexia’s take with the Urban Outfitters bandeau and thick turquoise necklace. By the way, the peek-a-boo bras are still raging all over LA and someone mentioned Free People was trying to capitalize on the trend and it looks like that’s true.
I’m told Alexia loves to hang at flea markets and vintage stores. Some of the brands she’s into right now are Levi’s Vintage Clothing, RRL, Thierry Lasry sunglasses, The Great Frog jewelry and Bandit brand. [Thanks for the details, Alexia and Larry.]
Summer Chambray is trending all over LA, which I’ll show you in an upcoming post.
