Get The Look: Graphic Grunge


Australian model Catherine McNeil popped up on more than a few Spring 2013 runways, walking in Paris at Saint Laurent, Hermès, Kenzo, Isabel Marant, and more, as well as Helmut Lang in New York. With her piercing stare and fresh, choppy bob, McNeil has been one to watch around the offices. But it’s not just her runway look that’s put her on our radar—her off-duty duds have caught our eye, too. Snapped in Paris by Vanessa Jackman, McNeil sported a graphic sweater and leather miniskirt with edgy motorcycle booties and an Isabel Marant jacket thrown over her shoulder. We’ve rounded up the essentials below because—minus the cigarette—this getup’s worth repeating.

Going Grey


It’s been quite a week for Grey Area: The buzzy artist-edition site launched a new collection of products, “Americana,” on election night, and has sold more than 1,500 of Sebastian Errazuriz’s inspired “MANHATTAN BLACKOUT” and “I STILL LOVE NY” T-shirts since last weekend, with profits going to Hurricane Sandy relief.

On top of that, cofounders Manish Vora and Kyle DeWoody unveiled a new batch of artist-made goods created in tandem with the designers at Helmut Lang last night at the brand’s Mercer Street shop.

Artists include Cat Stevens—”not that Cat Stevens,” Vora clarified—and Michelle Lopez, and the latest partnership has resulted in a glossy version of Shelter Serra’s rubber Rolex-inspired bracelet, which has become a bit of a calling card for the site and artist alike.

Serra revealed at the intimate dinner that followed at La Esquina—and drew the likes of bloggers Elin Kling and Leandra Medine, and Hilary Rhoda, fresh off the Victoria’s Secret runway the night before—that early on he’d been approached by and turned them down.

He’s been intrigued by what Helmut Lang CEO Andrew Rosen, who cohosted the dinner, referred to in a toast as “the Grey Area thing.” He wasn’t the first, and no doubt won’t be the last.

Get The Look: Major Monochrome


At the offices we’ve become just about immune to models with great off-duty style. But these girls have a way of getting to trends before the average shopper—even before they hit the runway. Take Xiao Wen Ju, for example, who was snapped in London in a black and white ensemble much like those that covered the catwalks throughout fashion month. From the chunky oversized knit to the distressed leggings and black motorcycle booties, her outfit looks totally fresh and comfortable. Get the look with the essentials below.
