(Just One Last) Paris Fashion Week Report: Man Repeller x Robert Clergerie Party

A while back we told you about a cool social media contest called Clergerie Girls, in which the man-repelling style icon Leandra Medine would team up with Robert Clergerie creative director Roland Mouret to select an Instagram-sourced collaborator for the beloved line of oxfords, wedges, slides and sandals.

Just before we all convened for Paris Fashion Week, the lucky gal was named—and toward the end of the trip, we got a chance to see the brand’s fall 2016 collection and celebrate at a star-studded, especially well-shod dinner party with these smart, thoughtful women of style.

Follow These Instagrammers (@RobertClergerie Does—@ManRepeller, too!)

The plot thickens. Remember how we told you about the Robert Clergerie x Man Repeller contest? Some lucky Instagrammer is going to Paris on their dime, and now we know who it might be.

For instance, it might be Jen Szeto, who ’grams dreamy scenes and cool-girl looks from San Fran as @windowofimagination. She’s among the four style-makers chosen by Leandra Medine and Clergerie Creative Director Roland Mouret from among the oh-so-many who attempted to hashtag their way across the ocean and into the star shoe brand’s design room. Because, yeah, in addition to just getting to the City of Light, the lucky winner gets a place at the table as Mouret and team work on upcoming styles.

What to Wear in Chelsea with Gilles Assor of Robert Clergerie

Although you wouldn’t figure him to be any older than, oh, say, your favorite older brother, Gilles Assor, U.S. head of the super-chic heritage footwear brand Robert Clergerie, has been around—in the best way. If you’re lucky enough to spend an afternoon hearing about his career in fashion, you’ll get an earful. From Galliano-era Dior to Jean Paul Gaultier’s JPG line (“before streetwear was streetwear”) to Paco Rabanne (“Balmain now is Paco Rabanne back then”) to the first time Birkenstocks were cool (and sanctioned by the Parisian boutique Colette), and from Barbara Bui to Margiela to Marc Jacobs in the era of baby discos at the Palais de Tokyo. Assor’s narrative résumé is just plain killer. If he weren’t so sweet and fun, he’d be pretty darn intimidating.

And as much as he knows about fashion (in case that isn’t clear yet, it’s A LOT), he’s also a pretty good resource for all things Chelsea. He’s lived in New York’s art gallery–studded neighborhood for four years, and the Robert Clergerie showroom, Assor’s “office,” has been in the Chelsea Arts Tower for two.

We were lucky enough to while away a few hours there with this fine Frenchman a few weeks ago. He snuck us up to the showroom’s rooftop event space, The Glasshouses, and pointed out the sites from on high: the seemingly singular one-story building where Donna Karan is said to be hosting her next runway show, the Frying Pan, the condos with drive-in, elevator-up garages (!).

“Realtors around here are now buying the sky,” he said in his spot-on, deadpan way. We left it at that—except for the following download on galleries, cocktails, coffee and, naturally, summer’s best shoes. (And some other stuff too.)

What Fashion Week Shows Us About Our World

Fashion Week Journal for Monday, March 9

shoes copy

As this season’s quartet of Fashion Weeks zipped itself closed and exited stage right yesterday and I boarded a plane bound for familiar faces, the voice in my head was never more like the diaristic Doogie Howser crossed with SJP doing her Carrie Bradshaw narrations. So please indulge me as I attempt to make some sense of the sit-com/sci-fi/drama that was these last 30 days of runways, real ways, icons, offbeats and more.

But …. I’m not ready to bring my Fashion Week coverage to an end per se—stay tuned in the weeks to come as I take you behind even more brands and share some special showroom stories and scenes—but for now I’ve distilled a month’s worth of impressions and ideas down to five notions of what the phenomenon of Fashion Month means right now.

How To: Wear Sandals and Sneakers with Socks and Skirts

As shoe styles from the resort season move over to make room for new spring arrivals—like these from Prada, the Alexander McQueen double-strap, Vince’s entire new suite and these Loeffler Randall slides (insert hearts-for-eyes emoji)—we’re really feeling the whole genre-mashing sportif angle. You know: socks and sandals all day long, and sneakers accessorized with anklets and slouchy knee-highs.

It works well with our Wellness Realness focus too, so we decided to hit pause on cold-weather boots and take a spin through a selection of street style snaps from our girl Crystal Nicodemus to examine how fashion’s best and brightest rock the look.
