Fashion weeks have already moved on from London to Milan, but except for Alexander Wang’s wonderful “furry collection”, here are some of my other favourite looks and pieces from NY’s fall collections presented last week. If these collections are anything to go by as for trending directions for fall 2013, then we can safely include black and white looks, leather and fur pieces in the trend forecast for now.

LOVE
- Proenza Schouler’s bulky contrasting silhouettes and wowen leather pieces
- Altuzarra’s monochrome superhot(!) body slinky dresses and leather pieces.
- Tibi’s wearable snugging pieces and I need those thigh high leather boots in my life(!)
- Phillip Lim’s jackets and cool layered silhouettes, and again I am reminded that a pair of round sunnies are still missing in my wardrobe.
- Victoria Beckham, sophisticated with a masculine touch, pencil lengths with bulky tops, and that gorgeous checked coat, please send my way!

At Tibi’s

When in NY I met up with Tibi founder and designer, lovely Amy Smilovic, over a cosy lunch in Soho followed by a stop by Tibi’s offices to have a closer look on the fresh SS13 collection. There are several reasons why Tibi is right up my street, it’s young, flirty, casual and clean cut, and always consists of effortless, timeless pieces that can be worn in several ways again and again. This time around in comes in forms of sorbet colours, prints, black leather, washed denim and laser cut detailing, and I can tell you there’s plenty of sandals looking forward to as well come spring.

Checked

I’ve had warm feelings for checked prints and tartan for a while now and dug out old favourite shirts from my wardrobe, and especially after seeing Dries Van Noten’s SS13 collection, I feel haunted. Beautiful Elin Kling rocked these checked trousers from Joseph over in NY and paired them with a simple tee, a tiny Chanel, heels, Ray Ban’s and a leather biker by Balenciaga, just loved this look!

3.1 Phillip Lim
90′s grunge, street NY, sheer fabrics and prints.

 Tibi Fresh, young, clean easy-to-wear-looks, included some gorgeous soft denim pieces.

Proenza Schouler Prints and leather patchworks, typical boxy Proenza jackets and dresses with slits

Victoria Beckham Love Victoria Beckham’s step towards more daily looks, sexy and minimal.

Of the shows presented in NY my usual favourite designers delivered great collections as expected, also look out for Louise Goldin and Victoria Beckham. Keywords that I picked up from NY for next spring are bermuda length shorts, skirts and dresses with slits, laser cuts, sporty vibes and knee-high cutout footwear. Now, lets see what Europe has to offer…..

Elena

Please bare with me folks, days are pretty long over here in NY and there hasn’t been much time for processing images nor posting. Well, better late than ever, and first post to kick-off from across the pond (about 2 days too late) is gorgeous russian Elena Perminova who’s not afraid of bold colours and prints, refreshing!!!

Simply bags

Here are some of my favorite bags and details spotted during fashion weeks, some last season, some classics and some new, not very surprisingly I seem to be drawn to Celine’s and Givenchy’s, but who could blame me. Except that I’m very into white bags these days the Obsedia bag by Givenchy has been hunting me for a long time, and I’m tempted to strike…..

Wishing you all a wonderful weekend!

Alexander Wang A/W 12-13

Yeah, Alexander Wang I absolutely love this! To me his best collection up to date and includes so many fantastic pieces that I don’t know where to start, from the knee-height boots to every shiny surface. It’s still a bit early to say, but I’ve had a feeling that next fall’s gonna be black-white-and red and tailored sharp minimal looks, which I think many of us will welcome after we’ve passed the feminine and pastel colored months we’ve ahead. Again, those lacquered boots, no words needed……

In Grazia

In Grazia’s latest issue that I was handed outside the Burberry show the other day I found myself surrounded by the best fashion company, Taylor Tomasi Hill, Carine Roitfeld and others, I’m so honored! The image was taken when I was rushing between shows on a busy and very hot day in New York and I didn’t get the chance to get my outfit taken with my own camera.

Taylor Tomasi Hill in vintage Escada; the side split on Norwegian fashion blogger Hedvig Opshaug’s mididress add sex appeal; Natalie Suarez in a sheer vintage Calvin Klein skirt…”

Eeeh, ok, thanks, but my dress is by Alexander Wang, shoes Balenciaga, clutch Helmut Lang, watch Michael Kors and bracelet by Acne.

3.1 Phillip Lim SS12

Images style.com

So many collections to absorb from what we’ve seen this fashion month and Phillip Lim’s SS12 collection is among my favorites so far, I mean, what is not to love about it? Sporty-chic, cool, wearable, clean cut, not to mention the gorgeous fresh color scale of soft pastels like lavender, peachy-orange and pink, also, the footwear here looks really interesting. This is definitely one of  the collections that’s gonna be haunting me through the darker months ahead, I want to wear every single piece and look right now and not wait for next spring.
See the whole collection here.

Bryanboy

I spotted Bryanboy outside the Phillip Lim show in New York day 7, he seemed so sweet in person and I loved his buttoned up shirt, printed bermuda shorts and Jason Wu python bag.

Miroslava

It’s been so wonderfully warm and sunny over here in NY this week, which is only a positive thing, except that my luggage consists mainly of fall stuff and I really regret I didn’t bring along more summery clothes and dresses. Miroslava Duma however seems to have her along wardrobe in place for hot temperatures and she looked so cute today when I snapped her outside Phillip Lim’s show.

Boys

So much to say and show you yet so little time, meanwhile when I go through my images here are a group of male models chilling backstage at the Lincoln Centre. I’m gonna try my best to upload a few more post before I head out again.

PS: the guy on the top image is O’Pry if I’m not mistaken, perhaps you recognize him from Zara’s 2011 fall campaign?

Christian Siriano SS12

I have so many images I want to share with you but unfortunately there haven’t been much time to edit them yet. Anyway here are some from Christian Siriano’s SS12 collection which consisted mainly of neutrals with pop-up of fluors, gorgeously floating maxi’s and cropped trousers, all with a touch of ladylike coolness without feeling to strict.

PS: When I figure out how to upload my videos I’ll post them here.

New York

Yeah, it’s Sunday noon and it’s confirmed, in a couple of days I’m heading over to fashion week in the Big Apple. Last time I was there was during the shows back in February but it will be lovely to see and feel the city while there’s still summer left, can’t wait!
