Milly

Culottes were the breakout stars of the year and continue to dominate the street-style scene. Kayla’s graphic striped set is ultra modern and perfect for spring, especially when paired with the season’s hottest sandal: the mule. A butterscotch moto jacket neutralizes and complements the contrasting-stripe motif.

Lainy Hedaya (Haute Inhabit) is no stranger to our blog, and with good reason: this lady has style for miles! It may have been 5 degrees outside, but that didn’t stop Lainy from breaking out her lace and stilettos. I love the winter lace theme that has started to pop up on the streets. Lainy’s structured blazer and patent heels feel very modern and sharp, while her fringe bag and full skirt add some softer texture.

It was pouring rain at the Missoni show (sob!). Luckily, the clouds parted for a couple minutes and allowed us to capture a couple of stunning looks, including Ruya’s. She is perfectly poised and elegant in her beaded coat and metallic lace skirt. Pointed-toe flats are a popular new theme, and these patent leather slingbacks are the ultimate in feminine chic.

The moto jacket lives on for yet another season! Genre-mixing looks are known as molto popolare in Milan. I love the way Fabritzia paired her biker jacket with femme florals and a full skirt. Studded Valentino flats are the perfect match to this tough/ladylike look. A small lilac handbag adds a hint of color and even more feminine flair.

Denisia’s outfit mixes the New Model Army trend with menswear themes. I am all about military inspirations for fall, and these loose trousers are right up my alley. The white oxford pairing is on point, as this is a definite must-have for fall. Denisia included some color with her vibrant accessories, which added a fun twist to her look.

Sahar is all about understated, modern glamour. Her palette and print are contemporary, but her styling and simple elegance have a vintage appeal. Lincoln Center is full of over-the-top fashion, so when you see an example of subtle style, it truly stands out. You look stunning, Sahar!

This season, Milly designer Michelle Smith offers a chic, slightly retro and very Parisian collection that evokes the essence of 1960s French New Wave cinema. Oui love.

Bistro Belle:  Milly Jersey Tee & Flare Skirt

Channeling the spirit of youthful laissez-faire, the French New Wave films were often shot with improvised equipment by the directors’ friends. Paying homage to their method, we gathered photos from our own friends who captured the dreamy allure of some of Paris’s most iconic sights and experiences—adding inspiration around some of our favorite Milly looks.

I was thrilled to run into Michelle Smith, the designer of Milly. Michelle said she had an amazing show, but she was glad to take a breath and enjoy Fashion Week from another perspective. Of course, Michelle’s personal style is super-chic. I am totally enamored by her iridescent skirt and voluminous fur coat, and her leopard accessories add a playful pop of print. Thanks for sharing a moment with us, Michelle!
