In this series, we talk to artists and designers about their most personal works and the projects that are closest to their hearts.

Shout out to Dej Loaf: there’s just something godly about rocking white.

We’re especially feeling that vis-à-vis these recent portraits of model Magor M’Bengue by Nordstrom Senior Photographer Barb Penoyar–portraiture being something she does in her free time, after she’s shot the looks that our in-house Studio N needs for the day. Her current theme is “In/On White.” Expect to see more of Barb’s portraits on this blog, all shot with 100% natural light.

“This ‘In/On White’ thing might evolve over time,” she says, “but for spring I’m inspired by white on white.”

I will be copying Zina’s casual-chic military style as soon as possible. I love long, loose layers, especially in white. A relaxed army-inspired jacket adds some trendy toughness to her springtime layers. The lace-up stiletto has been très popular this season, so Zina is right on trend. A lovely Céline bag adds some premium punch to the look.

Shiona Turini is back yet again for another go-round on The Thread. Today’s ensemble is really cool and a bit conceptual. I am so into the sash skirt; it adds drama and great movement. The military base of this outfit is spot-on trend, but Shiona makes everything look totally original. Merci, ma belle!

I’m kicking myself for not getting my hands on a military jumpsuit before Fashion Week started. I love all jumpsuits and Cassie’s vintage military one piece would look perfect in my closet. A shearling-lined moto jacket works well with the utilitarian vibe, while silver boots add an unexpected hit of urban cool.

Ciao, Tamara! It’s always a pleasure to run into Tamara from Glam and Glitter. She knows how to make trends work with her personal style. Tamara has a modern feminine aesthetic that never fails to stop people in their tracks. I love the balance of casual grey and vibrant lace in today’s look. A structured bag adds to the textural balance, while strappy stilettos inject a little pop of pattern.

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.

Street Style: Erika at Fendi

Erika is so good at playing with proportion—I love her unique sense of layering and balance. Mixing a sheer skirt and slim trouser of the same print is such a cool idea, and one that I’m putting on my ‘must try’ list. A thick ribbed jumper adds even more interesting texture and lines to the look.

I don’t know how Margaret Zhang does it. She can layer so many pieces and yet look perfectly balanced. Today’s belted ensemble is just another example of Margaret’s style skills. A quilted military-inspired jacket is an interesting counterbalance to her chic mixed pattern ensemble. Belts are a must for the season and Margaret keeps her layers from overwhelming her with a sleek leather cinch.

I always love running into Shiona Turini at Fashion Week. She’s got amazing style and a beautiful smile. Today’s military-inspired look gets a bold boost from her neon maxi scarf. The chic insulated jacket is a big trend here in NYC and it’s perfect for this crazy weather. Thanks for brightening my day, Shiona!

Street Style: Emily at DKNY

Emily’s dark, sporty outfit is perfect for the DKNY show. The black and white palette is practically obligatory in NYC, and this sportswear-inspired style is right on trend. Her modern letterman sweater adds a bit of contrast and flared trousers keep things current. Chic sneakers and leather gloves add some sleek textural elements.
