Photo Op – This is after Ralph Lauren’s fashion show. It’s raining and almost everyone has come and gone and Chinese model Lina Zhang, who walked the show, is one of the last people to leave. Photogs are quietly shooting her. When she suddenly realizes all eyes are on her, watch her turn Hudson Street into a sidewalk catwalk, below:

Slideshow: A Boy and a Ball – I’ve been in Tokyo on a shoot and have a few treats I hope you like. I spotted this schoolboy in Tokyo’s Shibuya district and just freaked over his style. That satchel alone just melts me. How cute is he, stopping to pick up the ball he dropped? Life should be so simple. Right after this, he stood in front of a convenience store, dancing wildly to their piped in music that was spilling out of the building. His mother was nice enough to ask him to pose for me, but when he broke character to focus on his ball, I was charmed. So many cute kids in uniforms and I spotted a few really young ones navigating the city on their own, which you’d never see here. I’ll show you an example when I post the range of schoolgirl uniforms.
My Tokyo excursion might explain the slow updates, but I’ll be back in full swing after a catch up weekend. I just loved it there and spotted a few fun trends to share, so stay tuned and I still have a lot more fashion week videos and images I promised you, too.
Milk Studios - I spotted Russian fashion editor Miroslava Duma heading into Milk Studios wearing Balenciaga and Dannijo. She’s such the style crush, always in a killer look.
I also spotted Miroslava last winter sporting a chunky sweater here, caught in the rain here and after Derek Lam in a Racked New York slideshow featured here. Stay tuned for more images of Miroslava from another show at New York Fashion Week.
Baby Blues - I spotted The Man Repeller a/k/a Leandra Medine this week celebrating the launch of Tommy Ton for Club Monaco. She was wearing the most breathtaking baby blue blazer and denim trousers (both by Ferragamo) and it made me crazy about swapping out my black duds for pastel palettes pronto.
She describes her full, enviable outfit here and not suprisingly, it was the way she wore her accessories that reeled me in, with the scrunched sleeves and trademark arm candy. Granted, her high valued wrist is more than mere mortals make in months, so please understand it’s not the brands (Hermès, Cartier) I admired as much as her mad embellishing skills. She’s of course sporting a colorful Dannijo necklace with skulls that give the high end look a whimsical flair (and I should blatantly plug her sheer Club Monaco tank since they were so cool to let me shoot the private event.)
In some of the posing shots we took (not shown here), I could’ve sworn she was swinging her fat engagement ring in toward her palm, out of sight. Am I crazy or has it not been published anywhere? If you are a good sleuth, you can catch it in the slideshow below…
Related Posts: You might recognize Leandra from my NY Fashion Week post here. She noticed something odd in my photos and it triggered her fun story here on seeing double.
Everybody Jump, Jump – I spotted this crazy vixen in the meatpacking district. Can you imagine looking this freaking pulled together on a lazy Sunday? Yeah, me neither, but she nailed getting a jump on spring. I got the sense that she’d never been asked for a streetstyle shot before because she didn’t seem to get the notion of standing still. It was hilarious and I just tried to follow her lead as much as I could. After about 10 attempts, I finally got this shot, featured on Racked NY. See the slideshow of my many attempts below, with the caveat that on some mobile phones, it’ll show up as 8 separate images.
Details – She’s wearing a Burberry trench, J Brand Jeans, a Balenciaga bag (loved her color choice), hot Hermès belt and Converse kicks. She doesn’t remember the sweater brand, but you’re going to see variations of that style all over for Spring, especially long and loose. See the bottom for fun shopping selections – and get a jump on spring with Olya below.
Fuzzy Logic – It’s no surprise that I loved Anya Ziourova’s range of coats during New York Fashion Week, but this technicolor fur by Helen Yarmak had me hypnotized. Anya’s a celebrated stylist and Fashion Director for Tatler Russia since 2009. She started her career at American Vogue before moving on to style for Vogue Japan and China. It was fun to see what she’d show up wearing every day and it was always an eclectic range of really interesting pieces. Here’s a slideshow view of Anya in said coat, exiting Derek Lam and DKNY fashion shows. Enjoy.
I ended up at Adam Katz Sinding’s much anticipated Scene on the Street event Thursday at the W Hotel in Times Square and couldn’t wait to see what everyone was wearing. You see, Adam’s one of my favorite streetstyle photographers who has such a keen eye for detail (like this Alexander McQueen clutch). His blog, titled as a tribute to having lived in Paris, is Le 21ème Arrondissement. What originated as a Seattle streetstyle blog documenting men who went the extra distance, now observes a global style set, and primarily New York, after Adam moved to the city a year ago. [Hint: For the slideshow below, you can click the pics to fast forward].
Adam’s 24 exhibited images were curated by Elle Fashion Editor Sydney Wasserman, the one who tapped Sinding for the magazine’s daily streetstyle column when he was up-and-coming. He’s since parlayed his photography into working for some major clients. The show highlighted 2012′s current and anticipated fashion trends and, while most people at the party relied on blacks, they were less than basic. There were subtle textures and this model accented her look with an architectural hand cuff.
What’s next for Adam Katz Sinding, (pictured above)? He’ll be shooting Fashion Week in New York, London and Paris, so this could be the perfect time to bookmark Le 21ème Arrondissement.
Hope you had fun with the slideshow and I’ll also be including more of these and also videos of select events in the future. Fondly, @stylespotting
