    Streetstyle New York: Dress of the week #72 – Katherine

    Juli 19th, 2013

    I met Katherine, a NYU student and big Yves Saint Laurent lover on her day off of school out shopping with some friends. Wearing a beautiful black and white ensemble she stood out of the crowd. Katherine was wearing an edgy white blazer with a sharp shoulder line over a Saint Laurent top with a pair of Rag & Bone spray jeans and beautiful Chanel oxford shoes. The favorite part of her outfit was clearly her classic duffel bag by recently renamed Saint Laurent Paris, a beautiful piece easily paired with any outfit. Top off the look with a pair of Christophe Tom Ford sunglasses and you have the perfect outfit for a day out in the city.

    Streetstyle New York: Dress of the week #71 – Insung

    Juni 20th, 2013

    Insung imported some Korean fashion sense to New York. For the springy weather she went for the layered look of a beautiful Dries van Noten kimono style jacket that she belted over a graphic Dries van Noten blouse. Functional but still fashionable was the thick Lanvin cardigan, she was wearing hidden under her jacket. The leather skirt by Marc Jacobs that Insung was wearing gave the whole outfit a little rebellious touch. She finished off her look with a clutch she found at a thrift shop, matching the color of her jacket. I love the silhouette and color palette of this look and am always happy to see a combination of high end designers and vintage treasures.

    Streetstyle New York: Dress of the week #70 – Alexandra Turner

    Juni 7th, 2013

    When Ali told me, that she was a print designer I was really not surprised considering that she was wearing a big and beautiful all over floral print Marni coat. Her love for textiles and prints showed again in the printed dress she was wearing under her coat and her scarf by Elizabeth Hewitt Istanbul – one of her favorite textile designers. Ali accessorized her look with a simple but elegant Celine classic bag, which is perfect, balancing out the prints of the rest of her outfit. My personal favorite of Ali’s outfit was her green suede slippers from Church’s again showing the love for textiles and giving her outfit one last finishing elegant touch. I hope the cakes were tasty and enjoyed in style.

    Streetstyle New York: Dress of the week #69 – Loraine

    Mai 23rd, 2013

    I can not get over how much I love Loraine’s look. Her rocker-chic style is right up my alley. She was wearing a sharp cut, off white biker jacket from Zara over a faux leather oversize Rag & Bone sweater paired with some J-Brand jeans and Kurt Geiger chelsea boots. One of the many highlights of Loraine’s outfit was her Alexander Wang handbag made of perforated leather – simple but edgy. To round off her look Loraine accessorized with a pair of Oliver Peoples retro sunglasses. All together a sexy-chic combination of black and white.

    Streetsstyle New York: Dress of the week #68 – Mana

    Mai 10th, 2013

    Mana made heads turn, walking down the streets of Soho wearing a cute spring outfit and a very unique handbag. The business and marketing student from Tokyo, Japan was wearing a faux-fur and leather vest by Zadig & Voltaire over a Brunello Cucinelli sweater with a white collar peeking out. Some acid washed jeans from Topshop a pair of knee high Stuart Weitzman boots complete the look. Accessorized with some Rag & Bone retro style sunglasses Mana created a cute spring look. But what would that look be without her showstopper Bao Bao handbag by Issey Miyake?  Inspired by Japanese origami, this bag is truly something special.

    The beginning of spring in New York means all the fashionista’s stop hiding under bulky coats and get back to their old fashionable selves.

    I caught Vanessa coming out of the Stella McCartney store on Greene Street in Soho in midst of a shopping spree. The fashion stylist from New York was wearing a Proenza Schouler coat and sweater paired with a skirt and some beautiful boot heels by Tyler Fitzsimmons.

    Streetstyle New York: Dress of the week #64 – Natalie

    April 12th, 2013

    Natalie’s outfit seemed rather simple when I first saw her walking past the window of my favorite Starbucks, but it caught my attention and proved to be very well thought through. The NYU student was wearing a quilted leather jacket from All Saints over a flannel shirt she got from her sister and a Zadig & Voltaire t-shirt. From the waist down she was dressed in Topshop jeans and ankle boots. The highlight of Natalie’s outfit had to be the little vintage Chanel purse she got from her mother. With the brand’s typical quilted stitching and a golden ball charm a beautiful vintage piece to finish off her rocker-chic look.
