Red may be the hot color right now, and many NYFW show-goers are wearing blue, but I think Phoebe Philo had the right idea with these green blankets—I’ve seen a number of women cozily wrapped up in them. And with all the red arrows in the financial markets, maybe green is the way to go.
This time of year, I wear such a restricted uniform that I’m in a serious rut. I grab the same black pants, boots, and grey peacoat almost daily. I love this Acne Studios suede jacket because it would fit under my peacoat and look fab with everything. The Sophie Buhai earrings are a nod to the multiple hoops trend without breaking the bank (and I’ll bet they’re lighter in weight). And the strappy Chloé boots are the perfect fashion-forward item for spring that you could wear now (with socks).
When I put this picture of Farrah on my Instagram feed it got me thinking about all the lines now devoted to stripes. Nikki Kule, Mark D. Sikes, (both early kic profiles), and the La Ligne team are producing some of the cutest striped pieces.
I’d not heard of luxury shirtmaker Lucile Roy below until I stumbled across this pic of Valerie Leberichel above. Only sold in France (and online), this may be the excuse I’ve been looking for—a weekend in Paris.
When I first met Gisele, she was a sweet Brazilian teenager. We all knew she would become a superstar, she just had ‘it’. Still a great model, it’s nice to see her fresh-faced at home with her family. And tonight, I’m sure she’ll be cheering on her husband at the Super Bowl—I’ll be cheering, too.
Fashion month is about to start and, although I’m not a big show-goer, I am looking forward to Bottega Veneta’s first-ever NYC show on the 9th. January zipped by, so there are a few things I need to catch up on in February. I’ve seen a few of the Oscar nominated films, but not ‘The Darkest Hour’, and I want to catch the David Hockney exhibition at The Met, which is up until the 25th. Zadie Smith’s new book ‘Feel Free’, a collection of essays, will be released on February 6 and I’ve already pre-ordered it.
What could be better than a light-weight shell jacket for spring. It’s the ultimate layering piece, can be rolled up and tucked in your bag when the temperature rises, many are waterproof, and right now it comes in lots of great colors—I’m in!
After 20 years casting models for Vogue, Harper's Bazaar, and fashion shows, I wanted to spend more time with my daughters. KiC is my way to share my thoughts on fashion and style. I believe style should permeate every aspect of our lives — from home, to family, to where we go, and naturally, what we wear — especially when we're just running around. — Preston Davis
