Let’s get this party started!

Today’s the big day!  New York Fashion Week officially kicks off the Spring 2016 Season this morning with shows starting at 9 am EST.  But the visual delight actually got underway yesterday with smaller brands (who won’t host live runway shows) releasing stills shots of their Spring lines and, then, the street style photos starting to roll in.  Below, I brought just a tiny taste of the best from yesterday.

And this year, we are in luck!  It’s never been easier to follow along and keep abreast of what’s coming down the runway for two reasons.  First, you get the hook up from me and Martha.  (obvi)  Second, Vogue.com has revamped its position on social media and Fashion Week and has decided to become a major player.  It just launched Vogue Runway last week with extened archives and a promise of full coverage including videos.  The site is sleek and user friendly, including features of parties, trends, street style, designers, and schedules.  (Or, get the straight skinny on schedules here).

And, while I love studying the runway picts to tease out for myself the trends as they develop, I really love to watch a show live because you really get a feel for the vibe the designer is putting out.  And more than videos or runway picts, my real, true favorite is street style pictures.  I love seeing all the flaneurs and other peacocks in their full glory.  And while I could never be so bold personally, I do inevitably find inspiration in those nuts and remind myself to not take fashion so seriously.

Happy Thursday!

Nili Lotan

The smell of seventies is still strong in the air and I love the scent of Jane Birken, Patti Smith and Cat Stevens that Ms. Lotan is wafting. . . and don’t even get me started on bandanas. . . my favorite trend of the moment. nili-lotan-spring-2016-3 nili-lotan-spring-2016-23 nili-lotan-spring-2016-11

See by Chloé

Claire Waight Keller is keeping the diffusion line squarely in the seventies.  Somehow it all still looks fresh and new . . . see-by-chloe-spring-2016-10 see-by-chloe-spring-2016-25
