Shop The Look: All-American Girl

-------

Shop the Look

We love a fresh trend, but as soon as the leaves start to turn, we’re instantly inspired to wear our classic fall staples. Think cozy cable knits, boyish plaids, riding boots, peacoats, and rich autumnal colors. It all feels just right for a rustic cabin weekend, complete with apple picking and cocoa sipping. But even if that all-American getaway isn’t on your calendar, a traditional fall wardrobe (with a few updates, of course) is still the perfect way to get into the spirit of the season. Shop our favorite preppy classics from Marc Jacobs, Gucci, J.Crew, and more, below.

1. Marc Jacobs cable-knit wool sweater, $695, available at netaporter.com

2. J.Crew wool plaid scarf, $59.50, available at jcrew.com

3. Gucci leather-trimmed cotton-blend riding pants, $895, available at netaporter.com

4. Marni leather knee boots, $1,240, available at netaporter.com

5. Chloé Marcie mini leather shoulder bag, $775, available at netaporter.com

Shop the Look: Pony Up

Shop the Look: Pony Hair

While fur—in every color and form—is a major trend for Fall ’13, it’s safe to say that the look is not for everyone. You won’t see too many twentysomething New Yorkers walking down the street in a floor-length mink. A pony hair backpack from Jérôme Dreyfuss, however, feels youthful and on point. Pony hair (which is, in fact, haircalf) is a rich alternative to fall’s traditional leather pieces, and unlike full-on fur, the shiny texture only hints at opulence. We suggest sticking to neutral hues and simple silhouettes, like slim skirts and structured bags, to let the texture really shine. Shop our favorite pony hair pieces from Victoria Beckham, Proenza Schouler, and more, below.

1. Victoria Beckham calf hair paneled felt pencil skirt, $1,695, available at net-a-porter.com

2. Marni calf hair top, $3,110, available at net-a-porter.com

3. Gianvito Rossi pony hair pointed-toe pumps, $744, available at matchesfashion.com

4. Neil Barrett calf hair and felt baseball cap, $415, available at net-a-porter.com

5. Proenza Schouler gray calf hair and leather tiny PS11 shoulder bag, $1,885, available at ssense.com

Milan’s Major Modeling Moments

-------

Clockwise from top left: Natalia Siodmiak, Binx Walton, Irina Liss, and Nastya Sten

More so than in any other city, Milan designers and casting directors are known to favor established models over newcomers, but this week we witnessed a slew of fresh faces break through to the front of the pack. Many of the girls who started strong in New York and London (specifically, Malaika Firth, Anna Ewers, Kate Goodling, and Ophelie Guillermand) kept the pace up in Italy. Then Miuccia Prada and casting director Ashley Brokaw introduced us to a whole new set of noteworthy rookies, including Nastya Sten (bottom left), Irina Liss (bottom right), and Paulina King. Flaxen-haired Sten debuted as an exclusive at Proenza Schouler (another Brokaw-cast show), scored a semi-exclusive spot at Prada, and went on to walk Jil Sander, Bottega Veneta, Roberto Cavalli, and open Aquilano.Rimondi. Meanwhile, we’ve fallen head over heels for Liss’ tight-lipped look. The otherworldly Russian followed up her Prada premiere with turns at Jil Sander, Dolce & Gabbana, and Missoni. Finally, King made a splash at Prada, Marni (she bookended the show), and Jil Sander.

Another thing Milan was previously known for was overlooking minorities, so it was thrilling to see many of our favorite up-and-coming black models, including Firth, Binx Walton (top right), Cindy Bruna, Maria Borges (we never could’ve guessed that she would open Giorgio Armani), and Kai Newman making major strides this week. Newman, who hails from Kingston, Jamaica, positively wowed us at Gucci and Jil Sander. We can’t wait to see her go on to crush it in Paris.

Natalia Siodmiak (top left) is someone who has been making the rounds for several seasons but is suddenly at the top of everyone’s watch lists. After ending London on a high note with turns at Christopher Kane and Giles, the gap-toothed beauty cranked up the sex appeal at Gucci, Versace, and Emilio Pucci, and opened and closed Max Mara. It’s gratifying to see someone who’s been paying her dues finally have a moment. Speaking of moments, who could forget Moschino’s memorable roster of old-school supes, including Pat Cleveland, Alek Wek, Erin O’Connor, Jodie Kidd, and Diana Dondoe? Another runway high point was Liya Kebede and Malgosia Bela walking Emilio Pucci. And, naturally, there’s plenty in store for model-followers in Paris. Just today, iconic Snejana Onopka made a cameo appearance at Anthony Vaccarello, whipping the Fashion Spot forums into a frenzy.

H&M Taps Isabel Marant

-------

Isabel Marant takes a bow after her Fall '13 collectionMark your calendars—this morning, H&M announced that it has tapped Parisian designer and industry favorite Isabel Marant for its Fall ’14 designer collaboration. Set to hit stores on November 14, the collection will consist of clothing and accessories for women and teens, as well as the designer’s first attempt at menswear. “I really tried to do the essence of my style. [The range] is an ideal wardrobe that you can do a lot with,” said the designer in a video for the high-street label (below), noting that she’s inspired by her native city. “The collection is infused with this kind of easiness and attitude. Everything can be combined following one’s own instincts, and my take on fashion is all about personality,” offered Marant in a press release. In the past, H&M, whose coveted collaborations sell out almost instantly, has teamed up with labels and brands such as Karl Lagerfeld, Marni, Comme des Garçons, and Versace. For Fall, the retailer seems to be continuing on the track of its most recent collection with Maison Martin Margiela—a brand that sends ardent fashion followers into a frenzy but is less widely known than a house like Lanvin or Stella McCartney, both of which have collaborated with H&M in the past. Marant’s collection will be available online and in 250 stores worldwide this fall. We’re looking forward to seeing new iterations of her signature savvy boho staples.
