The spring line for 2018 is inspired minimalism with semi-masculine silhouettes of dropped waists, A-Line tops, kimono jackets and over-sized suits. It is also peppered with more feminine pieces reflected in the broomstick peasant dresses and softly embroidered floral tone on tone patterned textiles. The bags are smart and modern, and keep to the minimalist aesthetic with the occasional embellishment to add just the right amount of interest to balance the keen sense of the unadorned that is the heart of this collection.

Here is the next installment from my series on PFW street style. I shot this outside the Palais de Tokyo before and after the Aalto show. I also shot outside the LeMaire and Rick Owens shows as well. I will be posting the photos in installments. There is something special about Paris Fashion Week, perhaps it is the old warm charm and beauty of the city of Paris itself. Or maybe it is the sense of adventure, not sure but for some reason I enjoy shooting street style here even more then I do in New York.

I hope you enjoy my snaps, there are lots of trends to love: from suits to leisure wear, to embroidered frocks, to camouflage to distressed denim, animal print and plaid. I hope you are as inspired by Paris style as I was shooting it. And don’t worry there is more to come. And the two lovely fashion gazelles above are twin bloggers known as DesJen. Be sure to check them out and Au Revoir for now…

Style Mafia Fall 2017 for lookbook friday

Fashion - alimackin@gmail.com - October 20, 2017

With a strong emphasis on the “statement piece” it should come as no surprise that the fashion label Style Mafia was founded by a blogger. Found in 2013 by Simonett Pereira

With a strong emphasis on the “statement piece” it should come as no surprise that the fashion label Style Mafia was founded by a blogger. Found in 2013 by Simonett Pereira a former fashion blogger, Pereira sought to bring the high fashion aesthetic seen on the runways to the everyday girl. Or, luxury at an affordable price point. One can certainly see the “influencer” influence in the this lineup and in the brand itself.

For pre-fall the focus is all about the ruffle. From dresses to tops to bottoms and even a suit, it is all about the ruffle. Asymmetry also plays a role and adds to edgy kinetic vibe in the collection. With solids taking center stage and prints being kept to a minimum the spotlight is on the silhouette.

an influencer dream scape to be sure

And this is reflected brilliantly in the asymmetrical high-low ruffle bottomed dresses. You will also find two-toned flared trousers, a cropped “corset” in mustard and pin stripes, an over the top bridal like strapless top and repurposed blouses. An influencer dream scape to be sure. It will be interesting to see how this brand evolves, with it’s roots in the streets, where will it lead?

Finally getting to share some of my street style snaps from NYFW. I didn’t shoot as much street style in New York as I did in Paris as I shot more of the shows themselves and I was working,  but I did manage snap a few pix, I hope to shoot more next season if it is not too cold.

I shot most of these photos outside the shows I attended. You will see a few familiar faces Elle from The Elle Diaries and Catt Sadler of E News!. I find I really enjoy shooting street style and shooting in general. And I am looking to start a separate photography website and even have a named picked out which I will share with you some time in the future.  Though I can fill you in a bit, the name is the French version of “I flaunt”. I like the would flaunt or flaunting, but it is already in use as there is a Flaunt magazine. So I went with the French version. Anyway, I hope you enjoy my snaps and there is still plenty more to come from Paris Fashion Week so stay tuned.

What I wore to nyfw ss2018

Fashion - alimackin@gmail.com - October 16, 2017

Things have slowed down a bit, Fashion Week is over and I have a lot more time on my hands now as I was laid off. The upside is I have more time to work on the blog

Things have slowed down a bit, Fashion Week is over and I have a lot more time on my hands now as I was laid off. The upside is I have more time to work on the blog, my newly launched You Tube channel along with learning more about video editing and photography. And I am finally getting to share with you one of the looks I wore for NYFW.

This whole look is fairly low budget. The bomber jacket and ankle boots are from Zara, the tulle jumper is from Forever 21, and the jeans are from H&M. The bag I got on sale at a store called Foxes and is from BCBG. The most expensive thing was the haircut—almost $200. I did not get what I asked for and in no way is this a $200 haircut. I will never spend that much on a cut again. The highlights are nice though. Only paid $100 for them at a walk in salon in Bayridge Brooklyn called Hair Culture. Oh well live and learn.

In todays Lookbook Friday we are looking at Katie Gallagher’s presentation for SS2018. The presentation was called Rain and was quite dramatic. I am dating myself here a bit but it reminds me of when I would go to underground industrial shows back in my goth days. It was very dark—literally, too dark to take photos, however if you follow me on Instagram you can see some it that I managed to record on my phone. I also recorded it for a future vlog post so you will get to see more of the actual presentation. But until then enjoy…

A dressed up minimalism if you will

With it’s quirky left of center aesthetic and over-sized details and mixed hemmed layers this collection is a folksy collage of relaxed grace. No hard lines or body con silhouettes, but instead a vaguely old world approach to the idea of the female form. A dressed up minimalism if you will. Checks and stripes play nicely together with an occasional appearance of a tiled inspired geometric print. With it’s intentional mixing of cultures and defiant expression of the modern day woman, this is one line up is not afraid to shake up the status quo.

MARNI PRE-FALL 2017 FOR LOOKBOOK FRIDAY

A little arrogance can be a good thing. Just enough to tell the world I have certain something, and in the case of Marni’s new line up for fall 2017 this means a decadent surrender to the femme fatale of luxury and grace. With a classic embracement of structure and draping we see gorgeous coats, capes and jackets in neautral tones of navy, black, taupe and gray with the occasional splash of red layered over an unexpected array of color studded patterns in a pleathora of textures and finishes.

With such a multitude of influences this line up is an arresting homage to the discipline of design and the essence of opulence

Flannel, checked, animal prints and florals all have a moment in this kinetic collection. You will also find luxurious embroidered textiles, art infused prints and fur trimmed details. Hemlines are long, and fits are boxy with a distinct masculine edge. Impetuous celebrations of the rebellious spirit show up in gold-tipped “combat” boots and circuits striped tights in red and black. With such a multitude of influences this line up is an arresting homage to the discipline of design and the essence of opulence.
