Olivia Palermo + Chelsea28’s New York Fashion Week Party People

Every international fashion tribe needs a fabulous way to kick off the Fashion Week season, and for the editors, designers and stylists who gathered at the beloved downtown restaurant Indochine last night, the Olivia Palermo + Chelsea28 dinner provided all the elements of a perfect party.

Our collaboration with the international style icon is brand new now for spring, so Thursday’s party was both a celebration of modern wardrobe essentials and all that lies ahead in New York City this week. From stylist Rachel Zoe and Valentino brand ambassador Carlos Souza to Caroline Issa, who helped host a very similar Nordstrom collaboration kickoff this time last year, these were guests whose iCalendars are star-studded and show-packed. The beauty of the night and our guests is that they make it all look so chic and easy.

Nordstrom Exclusive: Olivia Palermo + Chelsea28 Collection to Launch Spring 2016

Olivia Palermo + Chelsea28 for Nordstrom

We’ve crawled her Instagram account enough to know about her New York Rangers obsession, model hubby, proclivity to taking scenic city shots from airplane windows and her adorable pup, Mr. Butler. But these are just secondary attractions to Olivia Palermo’s polished fashion sense. The lady is always impeccable, even when trying out the latest trends. No one adopts a style and conquers it so effortlessly as this fashion authority, collaborator and influencer.

So we are ecstatic to announce that the jet-setting and lovely Ms. Palermo has partnered with Nordstrom to collaborate on Chelsea28’s Spring 2016 collection. Chelsea28 already offers sophisticated modern essentials for the fashionable professional woman, but getting dressed in globetrotting, day-to-night, photo-ready attire just got much easier.

“Olivia Palermo is revered around the globe for her style,” says Mark Tritton, President of Nordstrom Product Group. “We know our customers look to her for fashion inspiration, and we saw her consistently on our inspiration boards as well. We think she embodies the Chelsea28 brand perfectly, so it was a very natural choice.”

We can’t reveal the looks just yet—though we’re dyyyyying to. Just think of pretty color combos, bare shoulders, tailored pants and shirts, and serene elegance.

By all accounts–Instagram or otherwise–it’s going to be gorgeous.

Street Style: Fiona at Burberry

Sometimes simplicity stands out. Fiona’s minimalist look is understated and lovely. She’s subtly representing the ’70s trend with her flares and loafers, but her sleek white coat is minimalist modern. A chunky knit turtleneck is ultra trendy and the must-have item of the season.

Street Style: Hedvig at Roksanda

I’m pretty sure Hedvig Opshaug is one of the most beautiful women I’ve ever met. She is insanely chic and effortlessly cool, and she seamlessly blends trends and genres to create looks that are 100% Hedvig. I love today’s casual feminine styling—her oversized jumper is upscale normcore, while her floral skirt is all lady. Thanks for the continued inspiration, lovely!

Street Style: Brooke at Dion Lee

There’s an interesting textural trend emerging this week at NYFW: a flirty, feminine skirt paired with a heavy winter sweater or coat and sexy stilettos. Brooke Testoni–blogger extraordinaire–is a great example of this new theme and she manages to make an airy silk skirt look cozy and seasonal. I can’t wait to pull out some of my spring pieces and try this transitional balancing act out for myself!

Street Style: Kristina Bazan at Jason Wu

Blogger superstar Kristina Bazan (KAYTURE) is a trend chameleon. She can wear any style and still look totally authentic. Today’s normcore luxe look is oh-so-New York. Her oversize fits and cozy fabrics are perfect for a chilly winter day. Camel coats are trending strongly, and this relaxed style is versatile while being a modern classic. I’m looking forward to seeing what else Kristina has up her sleeve!

Street Report: Très Cool Outside Acne Studios

These two look très cool and perfectly minimal. They’re hitting so many trends right on the money: sweatshirts, baby blue, tall boots, loose shorts. I am dying for cooler temperatures so I can break out all my turtleneck sweaters and oversized sweatshirts. The luminous Parisian sun, along with tortoise sunnies and chic bags, is the perfect complement.

Street Report: Marie Elise Outside Gucci

Marie Elise stopped me in my tracks, no pun intended! She was crossing the tramway and just looked so effortlessly stunning that I felt compelled to take a quick snap. This outfit is totally “Milan” and simply chic. Her pastel blazer is a perfect relaxed fit and matches her printed trousers flawlessly. A textural top and clean white clutch tie it all together.

Street Report: Kerry Outside Erdem

Kerry’s back and she means business! Not everyone can pull off a fanny pack, but Kerry Pieri is handling the tricky trend with aplomb. Of course, luxe materials and a premium design help take this piece out of the mall and into the realm of street style.

Kerry’s pink pleated midi skirt is a top trend, in both color and cut. This look is full of modern femininity, but has fun touches that add a little quirky edge.
