NYFW’s frigid blizzard kerfuffle could have easily sent street-stylers into a tailspin. But the ever-savvy fashion set came up with some clever ways to keep out the cold—Hanne Gaby’s ski goggles, Cara Delevingne’s quirky wool Rasta cap, Caroline Issa’s spectacular Muzzy-esque fur coat, just to name a few. However, despite Nemo’s chilly wrath, some show-goers decided to freeze in the name of fashion. We’ve seen cropped tops, open-toe shoes, and, on one occasion, a bralette worn under a fur jacket as a shirt. The strangest bit about it is that the ladies don’t look the least bit hypothermic. We’re going to chalk it up to wishful warm-weather thinking.
Tank magazine’s fashion director, Caroline Issa, has always been on our list of chic industry girls. She has a clear, established personal style that doesn’t disappoint, so we weren’t surprised to see her looking incredibly fashion-forward at the shows last season. But it is worth mentioning that she always manages to mix what, for others, would be hard-to-wear separates, with ease. Here, she paired Burak Uyan fur boots with a bright, printed Mary Katrantzou T-shirt and body-hugging leather leggings. Recreate her look with pieces from Joseph, Rag & Bone, and more, below.

Just when we thought the sneaker trend was on its way out, another pair made it onto our radar. This time it’s the work of Tibi designer Amy Smilovic, who created a street-chic capsule collection for bloggers and It girls like Elin Kling, Miroslava Duma, Caroline Issa, Taylor Tomasi Hill, and Poppy Delevingne. Smilovic used iconic styles from Converse and Vans as her canvas and infused them with Tibi’s signature prints. Think black and white daisies, pastel florals, and bright optical patterns (pictured). But Kling, Duma, et al. are not the only ones who are lucky enough to rock these sneakers. Starting today, the collection will be available on Tibi.com, where you can personalize a pair complete with your own initials. At just $125 each, you may even want to buy two.
“When the Equipment trend was raging, I was still living in Corsica and I don’t think any store was carrying them. Mostly, I would read about them in magazines and totally fantasize about the understated luxury of the shirts. My then boyfriend, who was living in Paris at that time, brought one back to me,” Garance Doré tells Style.com of her first Equipment shirt. “Wearing it made me feel like the coolest girl in town.” And it’s still the coolest girls in town who are wearing the must-have blouses by the label. For her latest project, Doré worked with seven fashion tastemakers, including Taylor Tomasi Hill, Caroline Issa, and Style.com’s Marina Larroude, and photographed them wearing their favorite Equipment shirt from the Fall collection. “I mostly chose friends who wear the shirts in their everyday lives, and asked them to style it their way,” explains Doré. Here, Style.com has an exclusive behind-the-scenes first look at the shoot. Check back on Equipmentfr.com every week to see more images from the shoot and catch profiles of each of the fashion insiders.
Wining And Dining With Tom Ford, Street Chic With Jimmy Choo, How To Buy The Dress Off Rosie’s Back, And More…
Last night’s hot ticket was Tom Ford’s talk at New York’s 92nd Street Y, where the outspoken designer sounded off on fashion, film, and the lessons he’s picked up from the industry. Those awaiting his next film will have to wait a few years while he focuses on ready-to-wear, and those looking for a job, polish up your conversation. While on stage, Tom Ford (pictured) said former Gucci creative director Dawn Mello taught him to “only hire people you want to have dinner with.” [@fashionologie]
One more fashion brand is taking it to the streets. Jimmy Choo is launching its own Web site, Choo 24:7 Stylemakers, on which visitors can share tagged photos of themselves in their Jimmys. They’ll keep company with street-style shots by photographer Eddie—a.k.a. Mr. Newton—of editors and celebrities the footwear label has tapped as ambassadors, including Caroline Issa and Jessica Joffe. [WWD]
