The schedule is set (well, almost) and invitations are trickling in. Fashion week is on its way, which means it is time to take on the daunting task of planning seven days of fashion show-worthy outfits. It wouldn’t hurt to take a cue from Esther Quek, the group fashion director of The Rake magazine, who turned up at the Paris Couture shows in a handful of effortlessly cool looks. The bold floral top paired with tailored trousers and strappy patent leather Bottega Veneta heels (pictured) is one getup we may have to replicate for Day One at the tents. We’ve rounded up the five essentials to get the look, below.

A Street-Style Primer For The September Shows

-------

New York fashion week officially kicks off in 20 days. That means that editors everywhere have likely begun planning outfits in hopes of getting snapped by the roving brigade of street-style photographers. While there’s no denying the can’t-drag-your-eyes-away fabulousness of oft-lensed subjects like Anna Dello Russo, Giovanna Battaglia, and those ubiquitous Russians, we’re always on the lookout for the next street-style stars. And lately we’ve noticed several girls with the potential to blast off at the upcoming shows. Take Eleonora Carisi (pictured). The Italian blogger and owner of the concept boutique You Store, in Turin, has a knack for putting together eccentric ensembles like the cartoonish Daniel Palillo dress she paired with a fuzzy yellow topper back in March. Esther Quek is another one who’s getting used to the flashbulbs; the fashion director of The Rake could teach the boys a lesson or two in tailored suits. Our own Tommy Ton recently called out Ursina Gysi (who is Camille Bidault-Waddington’s assistant) as one of his “most sought-after subjects.” We’ve got a hunch we’ll be seeing more of her and these other under-the-radar girls next month.
