Street Style Paris Fashion Week

Photography by Team Peter Stigter

See the latest street style looks from Paris Fashion Week »

Yesterday’s Paris Fashion Week street style round up of subdued glamour was seemingly just a warm up to today’s batch of pics filled with quirky outfits and dramatic outfits featuring lots and lots of black. Black after all is fashion’s favourite colour.

Probably the standout look of the bunch is the fantastically trippy harlequin inspired red and black diamond coat and dress. Paired with a façade top hat, the back cut out allowing for an epically long ponytail, and structural cut-out shoes seemingly defying all logic and gravity. Anna Dello Russo, in typical fashion, also opted for unusual headgear, going for a felt riding cap paired with a black sleeveless shift and sheer pullover underneath. And of course, it wouldn’t be Anna without a little inflection of Asian pop art, with her gummy bear clutch adding a big of colour to the monochromatic look. Black moto jackets were all the rage and spotted on plenty of of-duty models and fashion style stars alike, with Giovanna Battaglia choosing to soften her shearling version with a ruffled gingham ensemble and bright pink fedora.

Street Style, New York: 45 photos of stylish Canadians, rock gods and statement accessories at Spring 2014 fashion week


Street Style New York Fashion Week Spring 2014

The sun was out on day four of New York Fashion Week Spring 2014. So were the style stars and their accessories. Carine Roitfeld’s wrap-around sunglasses were totally Star Trek and totally amazing. Just as great was Giovanna Battaglia’s pilgrim belt that was so wide it could probably double as a shirt (see below re: crop tops).  But it was neckgear that was the must-have accessory of the moment. These jewels were so chunky they were essentially clavicle armour. Case in point: Man Repeller Leandra Medine’s Frankensteinian choker.

Also out in full force? Shoulders. Like those of Moda Operandi’s Taylor Tomasi Hill and Danielle Prescod, who were just two of the showgoers to embrace the off the shoulder and strapless looks. And it if wasn’t a shoulder it was (still!) definitely a tummy. If the sidewalks have anything to say about it, crop tops will be around for a while.

The mean streets of New York were looking might friendly/trendy on Day two of New York Fashion Week’s Spring 2014 season. Showgoers were looking comfier than ever having ditched their sky-high platforms for comfort soles and sneakers (our feet are thanking them already!). Grunge was still a major player with heaps of plaid (think sleeves, shirts, and pants), graphic tees, and ripped, worn-in denim on the streets. Some were moving away from the standard street style maximalism to a simpler kind of stylish: black and white.

H&M, The New Icon: The retailer’s latest collection gives model off-duty style a permanent place in our closets

H&M The New Icon

See H&M’s The New Icon collection »

H&M strikes again. Yesterday they were making our hearts race with a campaign fronted by Queen Beyoncé (bow down, b***es) and today we found out the Swedish brand will be releasing a collection inspired and modeled by four of fashion’s other favourites—models Joan Smalls, Daphne Groeneveld, Lindsey Wixson, and Liu Wen.

Titled “The New Icon,” the collection is set to hit store floors mid-April and consists of festival ready looks like a tasseled leather jackets, bolo ties, and western inspired ankle boots that are indicative of model off duty style. For those of you who don’t know what that means, it’s basically an effortless look you would spot a model in while she runs from show to show (that would likely be captured by one of many street style photographers).

Glitter, gloss, wings, 6-inch heels, plenty of pink, big, sexy hair and legs that go on for days—the Victoria’s Secret Angels know how to give good glam. Hours before the annual Victoria’s Secret fashion show began, we headed backstage amidst clouds of hairspray, racks of Swarovski-encrusted pink satin Victoria’s Secret robes and throngs of editors/bloggers/photographers to get the inside scoop from the heavenly ones (The jitters! The diets! The costumes!). Pre-show, Twitter was a-buzz with news of Karlie Kloss’s new ‘do but post-show it was all about her controversial Native American-inspired costume, which subsequently will be pulled from the televised show on December 4th. From Justin Bieber to Bruno Mars to mega-babe Rihanna, the musical performances didn’t disappoint, nor did the star-studded front row which included Alexander Wang, 30 Rock’s Katrina Bowden, Debbie Harry, members of Kings of Leon , Gossip Girl’s Jessica Szohr and Vanessa Hudgens and her boyfriend Austin Butler. Here, FASHION shares our all-access pass to this year’s Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, backstage and beyond….

Patrick Robinson is out at Gap… but why?


Photography by Mark Von Holden/Getty Images for NYC & Company

We’re barely halfway into 2011 and the fashion world has already seen our fair share of industry shake-ups: the Galliano scandal, Carine Roitfeld’s exit at Vogue Paris, Christophe Decarnin’s mysterious mental illness/ousting at Balmain, and now Patrick Robinson has been booted from the Gap.

While most of the recent switch ups seem to make sense⎯Galliano’s anti-Semitic outburst couldn’t very well go un-reprehended and Decarnin’s health issues were clearly in need of medical attention⎯we found ourselves puzzled upon hearing the news that Robinson had been presented with a pink slip due to lackluster sales in the first quarter of this year. We’ve seen many a powerhouse figure reinstate retail dinosaurs (Bonnie Brooks at The Bay , Jenna Lyons at J.Crew), so why not Robinson at the Gap?
