Achieving great style comes from knowing who you are and celebrating it! For the fourth installment ofSarah Jessica Parker’s guest editor series, the designer pays tribute to six women who representSJP Collection street style. From Morocco to New York City to Los Angeles, watch the creative vision of Sarah Jessica and partner George Malkemus come to life in true fashionable form.
It’s enormously flattering and very fulfilling for those of us who work on the SJP Collection to see the shoes out in the world, having adventures across the globe and doing what they’re supposed to do for women.
I love imagining all that grosgrain traveling around—crossing city streets, strolling through parks and universities, sitting in meetings, driving cars, dropping off kids and meeting friends for lunch. And now to see the shoes actually having these experiences is amazing.
The women who submitted their street-style photographs really have their own elegance. They’re all special and very individual. I especially love the different shapes and sizes and ethnic backgrounds. It makes a nice visual montage of beauty.
The SJP Collection launched one month ago today, exclusively at Nordstrom! From New York to California, stylish women have taken to the streets across the country, rocking this very ladylike line of shoes, handbags and wardrobe essential trench coats.
Eager to show off how you personalize the SJP Collection? If the answer is yes, e-mail The Thread by April 4, 2014, for details on seeing your SJP street-style photo featured in Sarah Jessica’s next guest editor post.
One month ago today, we posted a shot of legendary New York Times photographer Bill Cunningham asking Crystal Nicodemus, our Fashion Week street style photographer, to jump for a photo. We were certain she’d end up in one of his stories, and sure enough, Crystal appeared in yesterday’s print edition and the online slideshow narrated by Bill.
Watch the video below for Bill’s explanation of the blue and pink trend, and you’ll see Crystal’s jump shot at the very end.
As is tradition here on The Thread, we can’t say goodbye to Fashion Week without one last look at the insanely good shoes seen on the feet of fashion’s most inspiring ladies. Have a favorite (or 64)? Each pair links to similar styles, so you can shop these lovelies right this minute.
Anouk Yve is back with yet another awesome outfit! Anouk’s urban-casual style is so on point with the season’s trends. Zippered leather skinnies are major at FW, and I like how she’s balanced their sleek edge with a preppy sweater and oversized oxfords. Extra-long shirting is new to the style scene, and I can’t wait to incorporate this look (and a new Chanel bag!) into my repertoire.
Not only does Elvira have an awesome moniker, but her style is amazing as well. Elvira is rocking this futuristic look like nobody’s business! The lines of these pieces are severe and sharp, and her accessories add even more ultra-modern flair. I love unexpected design details, and Elvira’s snake-print shorts are perhaps the most unique set I’ve seen all season.
Ooh la la! Tiffany is a street-style star and never ceases to amaze me with her daring looks. This subtly revealing number left me speechless. The floral detailing, the sheer layers, the embellished clutch…I mean, just WOW! And, bien sûr, no Paris Fashion Week outfit is complete without the omnipresent, and perma-cool, moto jacket.
Pernille Teisbaek is no stranger to our blog, and for good reason! This Danish darling (Look de Pernille) has style for miles. I love Pernille’s willingness to try new trends while maintaining her personal aesthetic.
The thigh-high boot is one of the season’s top footwear themes, and this pair is quite wearable. The formal short is breaking onto the street-style scene, and if I wasn’t convinced before, I am now!
Our final look at the Fashion Week scene focuses on the models of Paris Fashion Week as they exit show venues. Check out the best off-duty shots by photographer Crystal Nicodemus and get ready for tons of black leather jackets.
