The Givenchy spring show is all about the details. The runway pics make the collection seem hard-edged, you need to look at each piece, the craftsmanship is extraordinarily beautiful. Thank you to Vogue Paris for these backstage images.
I love earth tones—-terracotta, saddle, and even mustard at times. I’m eyeing Pernille’s scarf, the Gucci bag and shoes, and the Chloé jacket.

Hopefully, the movie will be as fun as the book. And the soundtrack should be good, too. Opens October 3.
I don’t usually look to the spring shows for a coat, but there have been so many good ones on the runways, it may end up being the perfect season to find a transitional topper. Céline above and Dior below had some of my favorites. Throw in the linen duster from Bottega Veneta and the Loewe suede trench bottom, and it will be hard to choose.
Parisian stylist Marie-Amélie Sauvé tops my list of chicest of the chic women. I’m inspired by her personal style—-wearing of-the-moment pieces, yet making them very much her own is her trademark. Fashion-forward, but not trendy–MAS gets it right.

At a lecture last evening on Wicked Plants (i.e. the ones in your garden that can kill you) everyone was commenting on the perfect weather we had this summer. Fall is turning out to be pretty nice too, and this page in Domino is inspiration for an autumn picnic. They had me at the blanket, I’m a whipstitch nut.
A few runway pics from Jonathan Anderson’s first show for Loewe. A fan of neutrals, this collection has a number of pieces that I would love to own. Worth a closer look on style.com.
Jonathan Anderson’s debut collection for Loewe looks fantastic and when I get to the office I’ll go through the show images and put a post together. Consider this Instagram snap © Self Service a sneak peek.
Sasha Pivovarova, photographed by Glen Luchford, looks stunning on the cover of i-D. I’m not sure I’ll adopt the single earring trend, but it sure looks great in editorial, especially this dangler from Louis Vuitton. I Cannot wait to see what Nicolas Ghesquière will send out for L.V. spring 2015.
So many chic women have listed L’Oréal True Match as their beauty secret, I had to try it. The biggest problem was finding the right shade in the terrible pharmacy lighting. But I did, and love it. And you can’t beat the drug store price.
Thanks to a KiC reader who, when I mentioned that my daughter is in college in California and I plan on visiting often, asked if I could consider items for women who live in warmer climates. It’s true that I recommend pieces that suit New York weather, but, I had an “aha” moment when I stumbled upon these Marni sandals. My first thought was that as much as I love them, they are completely impractical for winter in NYC; my second thought, they are perfect for my SoCal readers–Ta da!
If I can’t be at the Paris shows (and I wish could), the next best thing is all the great Instagram snaps from the front row show-goers. I grabbed this pic of the Dries Van Noten finale, with the models lazing on a moss covered runway, from Meenal Mistry of the Wall Street Journal. Global hippie-chic at it’s finest!!
Speaking of trends with more staying power than I expected, culottes have been big, and seem to be getting bigger. Bigger in terms of popularity, although they are ofter quite voluminous too.
I’m not tall enough for most, but these (it may be a skirt, but looks like culottes here) from Christophe Lemaire’s spring 2015 show would work and I love the denim.
So, have you been wearing culottes? Will you come spring 2015?

Mules stormed back on to the fashion scene last year and were a popular spring shoe. Although the satin Altuzarra’s were gorgeous, I knew I wouldn’t wear them often enough. And honestly, I thought that would be that for this shoe trend. But then I spied these by Chloé and realized that this style may have staying power. Love the stacked heel and buckles– I almost bought the flat version this past summer, both are good.
WWD sat down with Julie de Libran, Sonia Rykiel’s new artistic director, before she shows her debut collection for the house next Monday. A huge fan of her work at Louis Vuitton, I am excited to see what de Libran does here, especially after telling WWD she considers the Rykiel brand as “(e)ase and comfort, with a glamo(u)r to it and a feminine touch”. And a woman designing for women is always a good thing in my book.
