Get the Look: Paris Fashion Week Street Style at Carven, Dries Van Noten and Balmain
Gimlet-eyed Kristin Yamada is busy snapping street-style starlets during Fashion Week. Here are her photos to inspire you for next season (or this one) and some wardrobe picks to help you get the look.
Susanna Lau (Susie Bubble) is one of the toughest style stars to catch for a photo. She is always mobbed by photographers and rushing off to the next show. Being so, I am super excited to get a snap of her today in this amazing getup. Her full skirt is ladylike and gorgeous with kimono-inspired jacquard patterning. As you know by now, texture is a major theme on the streets, and the extreme bicolor shag of Susie’s stole couldn’t be cooler. A black-and-white optical bag furthers visual effect. Fun and playful pink sneakers complete this standout look. Thanks, Susie!!
Emilie Higle (My Little Fashion Diary) is casual cool today in this denim-driven look. I’m loving her oversized denim moto jacket with large-scale placements of distress. Her cropped jeans too are right on trend. Cream is a great color complement to Emilie’s blues. Knitwear continues to be important, and these platform oxfords have been uber popular on the footwear scene. A coordinated clutch completes the look.
The ’90s and athleisure are massive influences this season. Charlotte Groeneveld (The Fashion Guitar) is channeling this throwback vibe with her classic track jacket and shield sunglasses. A gorgeously gathered skirt in a cosmetic neutral also infuses a romantic spirit. The ever-popular Faye bag with rich retro color blocking completes Charlotte’s look.
Statement-pattern trousers have been making a splash all fashion month long. This pair on blogger Roos-Anne van Dorsten (Mode Rosa) has a really fantastic floral overprint. A black moto jacket is city sleek while bright red accessories take center stage. The colored fur stole has been particularly popular on the streets. Thanks, Roos-Anne!
