I’ve mentioned a number of times that I cut down a pair of Manolo Blahnik Pascalare boots, but realized that I’ve never posted on them. Funny how a small tweak took them from the back of my closet to being my favorites. They look great scrunched down, too. à la the Totême Fall 2018 show.
I love that the designer Filippa Knutsson is back at her label and opened the Fall 2018 show with Georgina Grenville walking to Portishead—both ’90s faves of yours truly. Vogue is correct—”Knutsson’s personal investment in the line keeps its minimalism from becoming flat, boring, or ascetic.” A really solid show with lots of must-have items.
When Phoebe Philo announced that she was leaving Chloé in 2006, I ran out and bought her iconic black and tan dress, which I still wear. So, I’m starting to think about the few pieces I would like to collect before she leaves Céline.
When the rumors were confirmed that Ms. Philo is leaving the house, my heart sank. Heidi Slimane is an inspired replacement, yet like everyone, I’m waiting to see where the brilliant British designer goes next—her own label would be ideal. Here’s to hoping.
I’m sure many of you have already seen this video, below, of System Magazine’s founder Elizabeth von Guttman interviewing the designers of Blazé Milano on their exclusive capsule collection for Matches Fashion.
Popular with show-goers since 2014, I credit my friend Kathy for encouraging me to post on the brand last summer. Kathy was an immediate fan of the oversized blazers in gorgeous menswear fabrics—and she was spot-on. I love that they are inspired by riding jackets, something dear to my heart.
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
