Celine

Collections from top American and European designers are almost never shown together on one runway, but each summer Nordstrom pulls together amazing fall looks from Céline, Valentino, Lanvin and more for a best-of-the-best fashion show event known as Designer Preview. This year’s gorgeous parade is on July 23—on the epic Seattle waterfront—and as always, all proceeds benefit the Seattle Art Museum.

Among those expected in the front row: One of our favorite collaborators, Caroline Issa, and two of the most girl crush-worthy editors from Refinery 29, Annie Georgia Greenberg and Paula Goldstein. Instagrammin’ style watchers will recognize Cara Van Brocklin from Cara Loren, Blair Eadie from Atlantic-Pacific and Wendy Nguyen from Wendy’s Lookbook—all flying in for the big event.

You’re invited too, of course—tickets are available via SAMS, Seattle Art Museum’s supporter group. The only question left to settle, then, is what will we all wear?

Fashion Week Journal for Sunday, March 8

By the fourth week of what is really Fashion Month, the sheer number of shows attended by someone like Konca Aykan, the super-chic stylist and Vogue Turkey Fashion Director, is sort of staggering. So asking her over a laid-back Saturday lunch which ones have stood out—well, it’s not really a trick question, but it’s also not an easy one.

Evangeline is such a femme fatale in this ladylike look. Her crisp white oxford has boyish charm, but her sleek pencil skirt and thigh-high boots are all about feminine edge. There’s something so simple yet dramatic about Evangeline’s stark style. She’s got that je ne sais quoi, as only French women do. That won’t stop me from testing out this look come fall, though!

Belgian blogger Sofie Valkiers (Fashionata) is killing it this season with her street style. I’ve spotted her in every corner of the globe now, and she’s always on point. Today’s look is all about that cape shawl. What a stunning statement piece! The hits of leather in this outfit add great texture and urban edge. Her bold blue bag stands out and gives some nice contrast to her tonal look. Oui oui, ma cherie!

Bonjour encore, Golestaneh! I love spotting this gorgeous gal’s style and positive attitude during the craziness of Fashion Week. Golestaneh has a clear grasp on contemporary trends and casual-chic dressing. The white palette suits her, and I love the subtle lines on her wide-leg trousers. Her sweatshirt-cut pullover is loose and relaxed, which pairs well with the menswear tailoring. A designer bag and wide-brim hat are the only accessories she needs.

As you’ve seen on the runways and in our trend reports, stripes are back in a big way. Maya is incorporating the pattern into her wardrobe with a menswear-inspired blazer and black and white palette. Her trousers have an element of sportswear in their design, which is an unexpected contrast to the tailored blazer and sky-high heels. Maya’s mirrored sunnies and luxe leather bag add even more chic appeal to this city-girl look.

What Geren Lockhart Wants

Los Angeles–based fashion designer Geren Lockhart is the brain behind Geren Ford—a brand that balances cool-girl appeal with a dose of feminine mystique. We asked what she’s coveting for spring (we might have a couple of additions for our own list now).

“Anything by Céline. I’m dying for everything Phoebe Philo does, but especially the burlap sack and boiled-wool bag from the spring 2011 collection, and the clutch with tail from pre-fall.”

“A newly landscaped backyard. I’m re-doing my house as soon as spring is in bloom. I want to put in lots of air plants on a living wall covering the outside of the chimney and then re-do the grounds with drought-resistant plants indigenous to Los Angeles.”
