Now Showing: Pre-Fall on Real Women

-------

Pre-Fall looks from The Row, Roland Mouret, and Sonia Rykiel

Many designers claim to make real clothes for real women, but that claim isn’t quite convincing when the collections are presented on twiggy teenagers wearing wigs and a bucketload of makeup. However, several of the Pre-Fall lookbooks that star non-models suggest change is coming. Take, for example, Ashley and Mary-Kate Olsen, who showcased their latest lineup for The Row on silver-haired beauty entrepreneur Linda Rodin as well as old-school catwalkers Esther de Jong and Ursula Wallis. Their mature casting underscored the sophistication of the collection. Roland Mouret also likes to feature strong, creative characters. After spotlighting DJ Mimi Xu for Resort, Mouret snapped eccentric knitwear designer/arts patron Tiphaine de Lussy for Pre-Fall. Last but not least, stylist and street-style favorite Ursina Gysi posed for Sonia Rykiel this season. We’re hoping to see fashion promote real people more often in the future.

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.
