Spotted At The Shows: Black And White


We’ve already established that it’s great to wear white after Labor Day. (Designers have given us umpteen great reasons to, and the only objecting party is likely your rulebook-thumping great aunt—all due respect to the lady, but times have changed.)

That’s what to wear; here’s how to wear it. Editors and stylists hitting the shows in New York and Europe—including tastemakers like Emmanuelle Alt (bottom right) and Kate Lanphear (top)—have been layering white, menswear-style jackets over black. It’s a strong, graphic look, but the classicism of black and white keeps it anchored. What to wear below? More black, of course—unless, like Natalia Alaverdian of Russian Harper’s Bazaar (bottom left), you want to dispense with bottoms altogether.

    Is that and Edvin Nilsson cross [top photo]? The vein you caught is the most elegant & western of a Manga look I can think of… at least, this is the kind of ‘graphic’ that came to mind on the spur of the moment. Am the only one with this gut feeling? [remembering a recent Veneta show of westernized J lines; only there it was not necessarily the fashion that did the westernizing - they picked up from the transparently related source / you know those, right...]

    Just a thought…
