Get collegiate chic with one of these bomber jackets, each perfect for transitioning into spring. The look has already been seen all over the streets, ranging from the matchy-matchy looks to cool contrasts. While I’m an ardent collector of moto jackets, these are even better for those warm spring days when a lightweight piece is all you need. Here are all the best styles at every price point…
The Hermès show is always my favorite of Fashion Month. Not merely for the obvious reasons but also because it’s the most civilized show of all the fashion weeks combined. The house elects a different location each season, yet the same overwhelming sense of serenity is in the air, no matter where the show is held.
We always hear people talking about how important it is to wear moisture-wicking tops and bottoms – and it is. I have this phobia about wearing really tight workout clothes. They make me feel like I’ve been stuffed in a sausage casing, so there have been plenty of workouts where I’ve been dressed in head-to-toe cotton…it leaves you feeling disgusting!
This season, Miu Miu had me at hello. Or was it Lupita Nyong’o who had me at hello? I have to admit I was distracted by her presence as we settled into the show; she is such a flawless, chic, and modern beauty! Speaking of muses and modernity, Miuccia had to have been inspired by the new Oscar winner and Miu Miu model…
No pressure or anything for Nicolas Ghesquière. He was only granted the task of taking the reins at one of the most prestigious French houses in the world, in time for Fall 2014. Not that the beloved Ghesquière, he of much-praised Balenciaga fame, doesn’t come with quite a pedigree. But any time there’s a shift in power and a change in creative direction, one must tread carefully.
I say this with confidence: When it comes to mastery of the craft and virtuosity of divine execution, Maria Grazia and Pierpaolo are unparalleled. In a most emotional Fall 2014 show, the pair made their inspiration felt by each and every onlooker: unconventional women deeply rooted in a moment of change.
Nobody understands the importance of showmanship as well as Karl Lagerfeld. For Fall 2014, he took us to market, and the once-in-a-lifetime Chanel Shopping Center experience was one that left all attendees reeling. Strolling into the Costco-sized big-box market made for a surreal moment, one that made me wonder to myself (and I was not alone!), “Where am I?”
Not only is Gilbert Halaby outside of the box, he has no concept of what a box is. In his tenth year designing, he’s made a name for himself as the coolest out there, but it’s this headpiece that shows just how out there his jewelry is. Handmade in Italy with deep blue and clear Swarovski crystals, the 24K gold and gunmetal-plated brass headdress is like a bejeweled veil fit for an exotic princess.
Fall 2014 marked a most beautiful show from the duo – and one of Viktor Horsting’s and Rolf Snoeren’s most wearable to date! Last season’s flirty schoolgirl-inspired collection gave way to a more somber, studied Fall.
