I was weaving my way through the mayhem after the Rodarte show and stumbled upon our very own Olivia Kim! Olivia is an inspiration, both in life and in fashion. I love her keen and creative eye and her willingness to experiment with fashion. Today’s look is a unique mix of casual menswear and formal femininity. I would never have imagined a pairing such as this, but I can’t stop thinking about it now. Thanks for the challenge, Olivia!

Negin Mirsalehi totally nails New York’s upscale edgy vibe. Her high-concept blazer dress is the epitome of modern, menswear-inspired minimalism, and her heavy boots and relaxed zipper bag add some serious heft and attitude to the look. Mirrored sunnies and chokers are two of the year’s biggest accessory trends, and Negin’s picks are cool and contemporary.

This is a look I’m going to have to copy ASAP. Thanks for the inspo, Negin!

Runway Rundown: Lanvin

Lanvin Creative Director Alber Elbaz took texture to the extreme yesterday, displaying a glamorous fall collection brimming with fringe, fur, ruffles and pleats. He showed a few curve-hugging pieces, but overall, silhouettes were free-flowing and flounced in the sophisticated manner we’ve come to expect from the renowned French brand.

Chiara (The Blonde Salad) is hands-down one of my fave street-style stars. She’s not only gorgeous as can be, but she’s also a total sweetheart and always makes sure we get our shot. Chiara started her Fashion Week with a girly, sporty look. Pink is the breakout color of the season, and it suits Chiara perfectly. I love the metallic print of her floral trousers, and nothing beats a cozy, fuzzy jumper!

Punk chic is back! I had a prolonged punk rock phase as a young gun and I still love all things leather and plaid. Leslie’s sexy zip skirt is the perfect complement to her prim tartan top. Throw in a little leopard print and some bold cat’s-eye frames, and you have yourself a look!

Lookbooks are one of the best parts of the resort season, which kicked off earlier this month. It’s fun to see the different models and settings the designers choose, like Joan Smalls on a rainy city street for Givenchy or Hanne Gaby Odiele against stark white walls for Theyskens’ Theory. We’ve culled a few of our favorite shots from the new collections below.
