SS18 Campaign

Vanessa Seward

The Vanessa Seward SS18 campaign images are dropping and they have a decidedly ’70s vibe. The red pants and wedge sandals are really good. And jumpsuits and slouchy boots still look chic here.

Fall 2018

Filippa K

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.

The “BB” Pump

The Manolo Blahnik Pascalare boots and “BB” pumps look crazy chic in the Fall 2018 Totême show. Happily, classics always circle back around.

Fall 2018

Totême

I’m a huge fan of Elin Kling’s personal style and love that it’s the inspiration for her line Totême. The Manolo Blahnik Pascalare boots and BB pumps are especially good in the Fall 2018 collection, which was shown in Stockholm yesterday.

On My Mind

Before Phoebe Goes

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.

Hedi Slimane to Céline

Hedi Slimane was named artistic, creative, and image director of Céline. The designer will start February 1 and expand the brand to include couture, menswear, and fragrance. Thank you, LVMH.

Now, let’s see where the brilliant Phoebe Philo ends up. I hope it’s her own label.

Blazé Milano Exclusive Capsule Collection

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.

The Black Shirt

I love this pic of knitwear designer Alexandra Golovanoff —it got me searching for a simple black shirt. A few days ago, I ran a uniform post with a pricey Saint Laurent black blouse and was asked about similar ones at a lower price point. There are many: Theory, Equipment, Frame, Brooks Brothers, and Go Silk are good options.

WSJ. Magazine

‘Play It Cool in ’80s-Inspired Styles’

Not sure I ever wanted to see a return of ’80s fashion, but WSJ. Magazine makes a good argument for some styles in this story from the February issue. On newsstands January 27.

Wishing for Spring

Turtleneck sweaters and winter boots are getting so tired—how I would love to run around in a Saint Laurent silk shirt, A.P.C. cropped jeans, and maybe a pair of Church’s brogues (I’m into brogues (and here) btw).
