Runway Inspiration: Wearing Skinny Pants With Heels

A trend we love this season is definitely the pointed heeled shoe with skinny pants. We took inspiration from the runway and channeled it into our minds. Isabel Marant’s  A/W 2012 runway show captivated us and we fell in love with the cropped pant worn with pointed heels. Read More

Paris Fashion Week from Be Frassy

Highlight of PFW so far has got to be the Sonia Rykiel (she is one of my all time favourite designers) . The clothes, the music and Sonia herself sitting front row (she stepped down from the brand, leaving it to her adorable daughter) made the show quite a performance. I’ve been busy shooting street-style for various projects keeping warm in a multitude of layers. Hit my favourite Paris bar, Le Pompom, where the Cobrasnake was going crazy on the DJ Decks. In a total un-fashion week spirit,  I’ve been eating alot – using the fact that so many of my friends are in town as an excuse to dine at all my favourite restaurants. Tonight we are heading to the “This is New York” party at Le Regine, I’ll be wearing a lilac wig and some sort of velvet LBD. Read More

NYFW street style

Yesterday New York street fashion came alive with pops of neon; we spent the day back and forth between the Lincoln Center and Milk studios trying to hunt down some looks that caught our eye.
It’s always so fascinating watching how people choose to dress themselves and you can always read something about their personality just by what they are wearing. I for one love soaking in fashion; it’s like a book it makes your imagination run wild.

Pretty pastels were teased by bright pops, and yes spring florals are starting to creep their way in, bring on the spring!

In the evening we finished off the day at the Betsy Johnson show and as you can expect it was quite a performance, full of energy and bright lights it was hard to keep up! Here’s round one of our Street Style, more to come tomorrow!

My NYFW Diary

Yesterday was a busy day, Free People was shooting our February look book at 5 Beekman NY; a beautiful derelict building built in 1882. Our model Martha Hunt danced around in pastels while her face and hair was decorated in bright powder pops and coloured yarns. Next week there’ll be more photos on this so stayed tuned!

Mid afternoon we headed to the Lincoln Centre to see the Charlotte Ronson show. The crowds swamped in, Dead Weather lyrics flooded the room and the spotlight shone on the celebrities seated at the front row – Nicky Hilton, Sky Ferreira… the list goes on.

Charlotte Ronson’s collection was an array of sophistication with a spontaneously cool edge. Colours of bottle green, oatmeal, navy and deep purple collided with quirky geometric prints. It was a collection perfectly executed. Not too old, not too young but, spot on right in the middle!

Now for Fall 2012 I’m all about bottle green and oatmeal!
