STREET STYLE | Coats, Coats, Coats





Oh, yeah - I think we get the picture. NYFW was bloody cold! But the cold brings out the coats, and the coats are proving to be incredible. Click to continue viewing my favorite coats spotted by the street style photographers (who also braved the cold) xx

FALL 2017 | Elizabeth and James

Following a beautiful collection from The Row, and assuming that, of course, your closet will now be filled with all of the incredible coats shows, Elizabeth and James’ fall 2017 collection are just the clothes you’d need to make up the rest of your closet. I have always looked at Elizabeth and James as the little-sister-but-just-as-chic to The Row, yet this is the first time I really do see a proper connection between the two collections. Regardless if this was the Olsen’s intention or not, I love it. 

This collection may be quite a big deal for the usual minimalist who wears Elizabeth and James. Correct me if I’m wrong, but the colors and textures are brilliant however different from what we’re used to. But it’s those twists keep a brand alive, no? 

I know I’m looking forward to trying on those blush wool jackets (do I dare the orange?), and those cardigans can already consider themselves in my wishlist. However, it is the suits that are getting me most. xx

Ok - can we discuss how amazing the new (and debut) Cushine de Ochs bags are? 
I mean, the collection is gorgeous, sophisticated, and styled beautifully. Cushine de Ochs knows and does the body-con dress better than anyone else. The sharp dresses, the crepe slips, and the thin, thin straps - this was going back to the basics for the brand, with the incredible addition of handbags. xx

Happy 10th, Jason Wu! 
As I watched this collection come down the runway via all of the brilliant bloggers on the ground posting live on Instagram stories - I was just falling more and more in love with a designer I have been following since the very start. And he did what he does best - statement dresses fit for the most vibrant, effortless, and strongest of women.

Now, let’s vote! Who is wearing Wu to the Oscars? Seriously. I want all of these on the red carpet. xx

FALL 2017 | Calvin Klein

Calvin Klein RTW
Fall 2017
New York Fashion Week


Since news broke that Raf Simons would take the helm of Calvin Klein, I have been waiting patiently for his debut womenswear RTW collection. And boy, he didn’t disappoint in the slightest. Raf’s signature is just what Calvin Klein needed in order to hit the refresh button and get back to the top of the fashion chain. 

As I’m sure we all predicted, fashion week is proving to focus on the current state of the United States, and Raf stuck to that with this collection revolving around America. However, this collection is America viewed by an outsider. It’s the pop culture, the red white and blue, the stars and the stripes. 

I mean, the highlight look featured the American flag itself, complete with gold fringe. One could see it as a representation of the higher office, while one could see it as being the superficial details which America may symbolize to many. 

Menswear was a major influence and y’all know me - I’m forever a fan of Raf’s take on menswear. The collection featured another American classic - denim. And some of the denim-wear indeed is brilliant and strong (and quite a Calvin Klein staple). However, a major part of the whole collection is the element of deterioration; just look at the yellow fur coat. Deterioration. Now, that’s quite powerful. xx
