I tried guys, I really tried. I did my best to narrow down the street style looks of New York fashion week, I wanted to limit them to something like 50 so that I can make the post “50 best looks of NYFW” but I couldn’t and you’ll understand why when you see the following 135 (yes, hundred and thirty five) looks. I couldn’t leave any of them out. In my defense though, there were around 500 so I still call this a triumph. (To check them all, head over to my pinterest.) Trends to take note of: FURS (capitalized, it was that big), all grey, all neutrals, turtlenecks under everything, midi knit dresses paired with oversized coats and flats, long assymetrical sweaters over tapered pants and finally bare legs, if you dare. Final word; kudos to everyone who attended the shows looking this good in the middle of a polar vortex. Apparently love of fashion not only feeds you (SATC) but keeps you warm too.
Stop the presses! Proenza is here. And it came with fishnet stockings, made for big big fishes. But that’s not the reason I’m dedicating this post to Proenza Schouler fall 2015 collection; it’s the laminated coat silhouettes, slashed knit dresses/tops reminding me of the guipure lace dresses of fall 2013 which I loved dearly, the genious use of persian lamb (collars, shoulder snoods) and borderline tacky craziness of the whole collection. Admittedly Lazaro Hernandez and Jack McCollough are blowing hot and cold with their style line but as long as they remain this creative, I’m willing to go with the flow they surged.
Taking a break from all the wintery stuff; streetstyle in freezing New York, my personal style in even more freezing Montreal or fall 2015 collections that hint what we’ll be wearing next time it’s freezing, Mango just launched their Premium spring 2015 collection and it’s a minimalist dream. Oversized flowy cuts, fine fabrics such as linen, %100 cotton or light knit and clean styles with natural tones are a precursor of the easygoing spring we’ve been dreaming about. Better news? They are on sale right now and freakishly affordable considering the quality and substantiality.
