Harper’s Bazaar Russia’s Fashion Editor, Maria Kolosova, has a magic touch—or at least a quick way with sleight of hand. Snapped in Paris by street-style photographer Vanessa Jackman, Kolosova looked front-row ready in what looks like a skirt and sweater—and that’s actually a brocade Sportmax dress. Leave the illusions to the pros; copy her get-up with equally chic separates. We’ve gathered pieces from Vanessa Bruno, Karl Lagerfeld, T by Alexander Wang and more, that are sure to do the trick.

How to make leather light? Designers found innovative ways to bring out the delicate side of skins for Spring. Leading the way, the Proenza Schouler duo showed oversize coats in perforated patent bonded to jersey that was laser-cut, then crocheted back together by artisans in Madagascar. “It was a weird mix of technology and handcraft,” they told Style.com. Graphic shifts at Giles were etched with a shattered-glass pattern, while Sportmax’s cutout houndstooth coats had a scalpel-like precision. Roberto Cavalli, for his part, incorporated both leather and lace into exquisitely intricate sorbet-colored slipdresses; the leather appeared as finely shredded paneling and also as appliqués embroidered onto the tonal lace. Part tough, part dainty—this season was proof that leather works for any weather.
