I have to say that I was a little disappointed in what I found this year at ENK Coterie for Spring 2016. There wasn’t that much to choose from or of interest. The shows were cool but let’s be frank, some of the best we saw from New York Fashion Week was the Givenchy show. Anyway, I did stumble upon some cute finds, saw lots of color and sequins (everywhere). Sequins and fringe. That’s definitely going to be big for next year’s spring season.
I also came across Chiara Ferragni’s new shoe collection. It’s very colorful and playful. Some it was a bit too loud for me. Cupcakes and Cashmere launched a new clothing line for Spring 2016. I had no idea she was doing clothing but guess so. I couldn’t get photos though because they hadn’t been released yet but these samples were really cool.
These have to be some of my favorite looks so far from the New York Fashion Week Spring 2016 shows. I’ve seen lots of pink, blue, sequins and feathers on the runway and am just loving it. Tanya Taylor had an amazing show and the shoes were to die for! I have to say though Givenchy (watch it here) had to be my favorite show thus far. I feel bad for the model that really fell and bloodied herself but it didn’t stop a thing. The face makeup, jewelry and craftmanship that Givenchy displayed was just out of this world. Take a look at the show below if you haven’t seen it already and what do you think of the season so far?
I came across this beautiful collection available for pre-order on ModaOperandi recently. The designer’s name is Marina Hoermanseder and she simply created a fashion flower field fantasy land of a collection. The items are just lovely and as feminine as you can get. Wear to tea or brunch with the ladies or just on a day out. Just breathtaking.
I’m just loving plaid for Fall 2015. Since it’s still really hot this plaid cutout dress makes the perfect transition from summer to fall. I wore it with a simple purple clutch. I got it from a small shop in Soho and it’s no longer on the market but you should definitely check out this Alexander McQueen plaid dress, Rag & Bone jeans, and Equipment shirtdress.
So after meeting Ella, founder of I-Ella.com, I decided to try the site and I love it! Who knew there were so many others that wear something once and never wear it again? We all have several items in our closet that probably have not seen the light of day for years! And it’s good stuff but either we just fell out of love with it, we’re over it because it had its “moment” or we just don’t go to enough cocktail or dinner parties. Whatever the reason, if you haven’t already, you should definitely jump on the consignment bandwagon. If you have nice designer pieces, why not get some cash instead of letting it sit in your closet for ages?
Suzy Menkes just recently announced that she will be auctioning her own private collection of goodies from Yves Saint Laurent to Christian Lacroix starting July 11 through Christie’s online. She admits that she hasn’t “thrown anything out of…[her]…wardrobe since 1964.” She continued saying “If I had a large open space in my home, I would dedicate it, like an art gallery, to my collection. But there is something sad about clothes laid in a tomb of trunks. They need to live again and this auction provides the opportunity for them to walk out in the sunshine, to dance the night away and to give someone else the joy that they gave to me.”
Here’s a trend I can get behind for Spring 2013: soft, slouchy and comfortable pants! I don’t know about you but with this NYC cold, I’m already looking forward to Spring and can’t wait to wear some cherry-colored pants like these Joie Crepe “Jogging Pants” (pictured above), these black leather Vince“jogging pants”(pictured below). You could also do these lilac Phillip Lim pants from the Fall collection (below, left). Check out my “Soft, Slouchy Pants Collection” on Lyst here.
Looks like comfort and style are winning this Spring and I like it. I especially love these Phillip Lim Overalls, pink, green or black leather!
