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.

In London, A Turkish Delight


The first day of London fashion week is habitually a bit of a cozy domestic affair, mostly modeled by new faces and attended by assistants, but lo! At lunchtime today the full power of international fashion friendship networking was almost surreally visited upon The Old Dairy on Wakefield Street. There on the runway were Natalia Vodianova, Lara Stone, Mariacarla Boscono, and Natasha Poly. There in the audience, Kate Moss, Carine Roitfeld, Emmanuelle Alt, Stephen Gan, et al. The draw? Not a Londoner but a fresh arrival from Turkey, Hakaan Yildrim, a well-known designer who dresses the high-profile media and social glamorati of Istanbul. His all-guns-blazing debut on the Western runway was, it turns out, thanks to his compatriot Mert Alas (one half of Mert & Marcus), who corralled all his friends’ support. What they saw: well-made clothes in the short-tight-sexy mold, treated to cutting techniques involving rippling stand-up frills; peplums; overlapping, interwoven diagonals; and spaghetti strips of leather. There was a lot of intricate work in it—a touch too much in places—but the quality was inarguable and the styling, with the outcrops of ostrich, puts him somewhere in the slipstream of Riccardo Tisci.

Blasblog from Paris: Julia von Boehm’s Intimate Birthday


For Julia von Boehm, the stylist who recently moved to New York, her birthday party Monday night was a major Parisian homecoming—and not just because she was back in her native city. In fact, if she was honest, that wasn’t even such a plus—”I much, much prefer New York,” she admitted. “I actually can’t wait to go back home.” But that was before her present showed up: her brother, who had flown in from Berlin. “I started crying and getting puffy,” von Boehm said of his unexpected arrival. “Which isn’t the birthday-girl look I was going for.” Not that guests at Angelo Sensini’s pad—he co-hosted the fête with Delfina Delettrez—showed any signs of slowing down. As I was leaving, Anastasia Barbieri and Emmanuelle Alt were just showing up, the latter with Mario Sorrenti on her arm.

Blasblog From Paris: Erin Wasson Makes A (Brief) Return To The Runway


Erin Wasson, the Texas supermodel and current Maybelline spokesperson, is cleverly building a brand for herself. After dabbling backstage for a few seasons, doing a body jewelry collection, and launching her clothing line with RVCA, the one-time model is nearly ubiquitous. Which brings us to Paris. Lest we forget Wasson was first a household name (well, in really fashionable houses, anyway) for actually modeling, her turn in yesterday’s Balmain show—which she closed—was a timely reminder of her humble catwalk beginnings. At the Purple magazine dinner that evening, she divulged she would be making one other strut while in Paris: the Isabel Marant show. “I wanted to get in, and I wanted to get out,” she said. “So I’m launching my collection here on Saturday, and then getting out of town.” Not only does she not miss the panic of a week of shows, but she’ll be heading back to Texas for the SXSW music festival, which she says is like an annual homecoming. Returning to the runway wasn’t that hard, she admitted. “I’ve been to a few shows now, and I still feel weird not being backstage,” she sighed. “Especially at Alex [Wang]’s show. They had Hooters hot wings back there.”
