Fashion Week Journal for Thursday, February 26

Where New York Fashion Week and London Fashion Week might have been taglined Those ’70s Shows, Max Mara‘s camel-colored cashmere runway took us back to the 1950s and Marilyn Monroe. But this wasn’t your average blonde bombshell Monroe; this was a studious, serious side of the actress—a side deeply inspired by George Barris’s beach images of her from 1962.

Highlights and commentary from yesterday’s Milan Fashion Week runway shows: Etro combines bourgeois formality with lavish, tapestry-inspired looks. The Italian fashion house, known for its artistic textiles, didn’t fail to deliver with geometric, ’70s prints in rich, earthy tones and sumptuous fabrications.

Patricia looks flat-out amazing in these slim denim overalls. She’s got a bit of a retro ’70s vibe going, but feels absolutely modern too. The white turtleneck is a super popular piece this season and it pairs so well with denim. The striped, cropped fur coat adds some luxe texture to her look.

Another show, another great outfit from Linda Tol! Overalls and jumpsuits continue to be a hot item this season, especially flared-leg styles. This silky patterned pair is so Linda: unique and edgy. A simple turtleneck is the perfect pairing with this statement one-piece. A bold lip and a structured box clutch add even more cool sophistication to the look.

By now, everyone knows how much I love Shiona Turini and her megawatt smile. Of course, it helps that she also has impeccable style. I love that Shiona doesn’t shy away from color and today she really stood out. Her bright trousers and crop top make me wish spring was here already. A military-inspired coat, emblazoned with butterflies, amps up the springtime vibes.

Anjelica looks like she just walked off a 1970s rock n’ roll tour bus. I am so pleased with the whole ’70s revival trend, especially this Penny Lane-inspired style. Tall boots, a big hat, and a shearling-lined coat make for a statement seventies look. A flowing midi dress keeps things light and feminine.

Street Style: Chiara at Fendi

Chiara Ferragni (The Blonde Salad) is one of the most successful bloggers in the biz at this point. But, it’s not just her awesome and unique style that makes her a blog star, it’s also her positive, vibrant energy.

Chiara isn’t afraid to have fun with fashion, which is so refreshing. This look is about simple separates with a twist. Her pink fur vest is a great take on the moto trend, and I love her mini Karl fur charm. Keep it up, Chiara!

Street Style: Tina at Fendi

Tina Leung is one of those lucky ladies who looks good in everything. She has amazing taste and a modern, cutting-edge sensibility. When Tina walks down the street, you’re compelled to capture the moment. Today’s look is true Tina: fierce, edgy and sleek. This striped moto jacket is a thing of beauty, and I need it in my closet ASAP!

Street Style: Julia at Fendi

Julia may be young, but she knows how to dress. Her outfit for the Fendi show is so chic and crisp. Shirting is having a major moment and I love the simple contrast of white shirt and black vest. A sleeveless, belted blazer vest is an unexpected, but very cool addition. To brighten up the minimalist palette, a bold, red lip is a classic choice.

Everyone knows I have a style crush on Linda Tol. She is just so creative and exciting to watch. You never know what to expect from her. Today’s powder blue suit is a far cry from the leisure suits of yore. This suit is crisp, modern, and ever so slightly sporty. A fun bag adds a pop of color and pattern. And, no purse is complete without a furry charm this season!

Street Style: Nausheen at Fendi

February 27, 2015

We all know and love Nausheen Shah here on The Thread. She’s such a delight, both as a person and a fashion maven. This monochromatic look is undeniably chic and Milanese. I love the grommet details on Nausheen’s trench, which add a little flair to a classic piece. A vibrant clutch injects some color. xo, […]
