Laure's combination of a rich rusty brown trousers, sienna boots, cream jacket/fur vest and pewter Chanel handbag is so chic! I can't wait to visit the Webster this Spring to see what she's selected for the fashionable Miami set. I'm sure that the selection will be as gorgeous as this look.
P.S. You read correctly, I'll be headed to Miami for a few days this Spring. Can't wait!
Jennifer's print and lace floral combo dominate the lines on this Paris street! J'adore! The colors are amazing together and tell such a cute rosy story. AND, I love her two-tone, loafer style, power-player pumps. AND, her maxi-envelope clutch closes the deal! Here's to flower power! Signed, sealed and delivered!
It was awesome seeing a sporty Inès de La Fressange at the couture shows with her camera. I spotted her at Elie Saab show shooting front row. I wonder who she's shooting for. A personal project? Either way, she's got her photographer's look down pat. I've been working on mine since 2005. Style icons... so inspiring.
UPDATE! Thanks to the lovely Claire and Caroline, I can now tell you that Inès is on assignment for Madame Figaro. So cool! I can't!
Alana's look is so
inspiring. Simple, feminine, and effortlessly cool are the best words to
describe it. I'm always down for a pretty print, and I really love that
she's paired the look with the Acne Pistols. They really add that
cool, laid-back touch to the outfit.
Sorry, guys. I had to update this post. I can be a bit of a disaster with the names of models. They're always so breath taking that I some times lose oxygen to the brain. Massive thanks to Maria for pointing that out.
I really liked Isabel Marant's FW11/12 collection. And heck yeah, I'm still bummed out that I couldn't get my hands on a pair of the fringe boots- to hell with personal budgetary constraints. But hey, all the more reason to be inspired to put together an outfit. Here's
my take on the over all mood of the collection, lots of Navajo-inspired
fringe, cool denim and a bit of cowboy. I'm wearing a suede fringe blazer
from Cut, Milano, Rag & Bone Jeans, Prada thigh-high boots, a bag
from Bonpoint, hat from Zara and a scarf by Max Mara. I had a lot of fun playing with this look. Were there any looks that you recreated this season that you would like to share? Love to hear about it!
Thanks to the amazing Lee Oliveira for another gorgeous foto!
I'm always inspired by this editor's quirky style. The details of her looks are always so good! The six buttons on her blazer and coat, the multicolored stripes on her tote, and her red socks really stand out for me. Which part of her look stands out for you?
I picked up this Joseph reversible shearling just after Thanksgiving. It has quickly become one of my favorite jackets. It's the perfect solution for short trips, like my recent two days in Pitti. I can't remember the last time I traveled anywhere with only one jacket.
I'm wearing a pair of Club Monaco cords in the first pic and my favorite new Celine glasses.
In the second pic I wear a Borsalino hat, Banana Republic scarf, Zara pants and my trusty Celine trio.
The lovely Giorgia outside the Etro show yesterday. Her look is perfection. So simple and chic, but in no way ordinary. I love the t-strap white sandals. It takes a truly stylish bird to pull them off, especially in the winter. We're working with Giorgia over at Grazia.it. To follow her love for all things fashion, visit our "It Girls" section. If you don't already have a crush, you'll definitely fall for her there.
How cute is Viviana's look? You probably can't tell from the pic, but her top is made from neoprene, yes as in scuba gear. It was beyond freezing today (-4°C/24.5°F), and just like a brilliant stylist, she pulled it out of her closet to fight off the cold. Don't you also love her gloves? I love the mix of cashmere, fur and leather. So chic. And don't get me started on her MSGM leopard print tie collar blouse! She nailed the bow, it's tied to perfection! Great styling Vivi!
This evening Miuccia Prada showed a collection dedicated to men in power. To complete her cast of military dignitaries, managers and other men of power, Mrs Prada enlisted high-profile actors such as Dafoe, Brody, Tim Roth, Gary Oldman, Emile Hirsch, Garrett Hedlund, Jamie Bell and twins Alexandre e Victor Carril who walked the catwalk to the sound of cheers. The collection itself was incredible with gorgeous tailoring, impeccable attention to detail and stunning fabrics. I personally love the coats. In fact, Simone Marchetti suggests that I get one next season and wear it as an oversize coat. I have to say that I'm very tempted.
I love this image of Caroline flanked by Masoud Golsorkhi and Scott Schuman. Always incredibly stylish, she is the center of attention. She wears the most perfect Joseph tangerine leather pants, a Joseph shearling layered over a Jason Wu bomber, a Jason Wu collar and Prada shoes.
Here are some of my favorite looks from my second day at Pitti. I wanted to get them to you on Friday, but my computer crashed. It's working again, but I think it's time for a new one. Enjoy the images and I hope that you are having a lovely weekend.
Gentlemen from the top:
Josh Peskowitz, Style Director Park & Bond and Gilt Man

I wasn't able to get this gorgeous girl's name as I was rushing to an appointment. I love her style though. She's super cute!
A lot of things have changed for me professionally since the first time I attend Pitti in June 2006. As Director of Grazia.it, I attend the menswear fair to preview trends and to meet with Grazia Italy's clients. I'm learning a lot and meeting many fascinating and inspiring industry players. AND, I am super lucky as I have the opportunity to shoot street style as I am walking around town and between appointments. Here are some lovely images of girls who inspired me yesterday.
From the top:
Valentina- I spotted Valentina's amazingly detailed look as I was walking to Pitti from my hotel. What don't I love about it. I want her gloves, am swooning over her perfectly layered outerwear, want to rip the tapestry style backpack of her back, and am really into her oxfords!
Gilda- A bold printed jacket layered over a maxi pleated leather dress will get my attention every time. Hello!
Nil- Yep, you already know that I am a sucker for pretty girls in bright colors! Oh, she looks amazing!
Fabiana- Camel, tweed, lace and denim (shorts). Nough said!
I hope you're as inspired as I am! Have an amazing day, Tamu
I met Cindy Ko of the blog Cindiddy during the SS12 collections in NY. I really dig her chic mix-m-match style. Her looks are young, fun and effortless. Head over to Young and Posh to see the entire post. xx, Tamu
Pitti starts today and I can't help wonder what one of my favorite male style icons has in store for us. During womens' Simone wore the most brilliant custom made trousers, all of which were made with Marimekko fabric. I know, genius! Totally original and a master of color, he's always one to watch! I'll be looking out for you Simone! Ciao tesoro!
