What’s On Your List For Spring?
It feels like ages ago that we saw the Spring 2010 collections tromp down the runways, but those pieces—the cool neutrals, sporty sweats, and all those flak jackets on parade—are beginning to hit stores. And, well, we’d be lying if we said we hadn’t been waiting. What’s on the Style.com wish list?
Executive editor Nicole Phelps’ favorite look is Phi‘s khaki jacket and slouchy military pants, which, alas, aren’t destined for production now that the label has been shuttered. “So I’ll take Haider Ackermann‘s leather cargo vest and bias-cut long silk skirt instead,” she says. “The only question is, will I have an occasion to wear them?”
Associate fashion market editor Romney Leader’s had her eye on silk ikat pants from Dries Van Noten “to add a pop of color to my wardrobe.” Fashion market editor Marina Larroude will be one of many lining up for Phoebe Philo’s gorgeous, neutral leather pieces for Celine. “I’d die for any of their bags and shoes,” she reports. (We’ll try to see that it doesn’t come to that.)
As for me? I’m saving for one of Patrik Ervell‘s rust-detailed shirts from his marvelously (and literally!) corroded collection—full of pieces, I should add, that would look as good on a girl as a guy. (Ervell sent a few young ladies down the runway to prove it.)
