In todays Lookbook Friday we are looking at the Parisian brand Delphine Delafon. The brand was founded in 2011 as a handbag company. Originally know for her specialized bucket bag featuring engraved and numbered eyelets the company has expanded to include customized bags and Ready-to-Wear.

this line up embraces the romantic ethos of a free-spirited it girl

We are looking at the company’s first attempt at Ready-to-Wear with the pre-fall 2017. The brand’s only garment collection to date has a distinct seventies flair and a decidedly French feel. With it’s high-waisted wide legged trousers, electric pops of color and liberal use of crushed velvet it is safe to say this line up embraces the romantic ethos of a free-spirited it girl

I hope to visit the studio in Paris one day to create a bag of my own. If you want to learn more about Delphine Delafon head to website at Delphinedelafon.com

Happy 2018 everyone. Here is hoping that 2018 will be a better year then the one we left behind. It is the time of the year when we look inward and then outward. And for me this means a more dedicated vision of bringing to you my devoted readers the best in new and emerging designers. I want to focus less on the well known designers, not that you will not see coverage of the heavy hitters but you will certainly see more of a focus on break out talents and the smaller houses.

And in today’s Lookbook Friday I am going to introduce you Collectionsy-Milano. A brand based out of Italy and founded by Shang Yang who studied at the Domas Academy in Milan. Shang Yang rose quickly working with well know brands in Italy while still in school and having his 2016 graduate collection featured in Vogue Italia.

His strength lies in his deceivingly simple lines and playful aesthetic

The collection for 2018 embraces a youthful and more body conscious silhouette then we have seen the last few seasons. Fluctuating between streamlined pieces of expert tailoring and more embellished garments the lineup offers a kinetic duality of adorned minimalism. His strength lies in his deceivingly simple lines and playful aesthetic. With the elongated body dresses and two tiered skirt and ruffled jackets stealing the show. To see from Shang Yang head to Collections.com.

And as I have been shooting more and more I decided that I needed a separate space to showcase my photography and thus J’Etalage was born. J’Etalage means “I flaunt” in French. So I am formally introducing you to my photograph site.  I hope you enjoy it as well as this last round of photos, and I will be reporting all the news on New York’s upcoming Fashion Week so be sure to stay tuned!

It is Christmas weekend and New Years Eve is right around the corner. Time to look forward and celebrate the coming of a new year. And of course this often ushered in with a night of drinking, merriment and a fabulously fashionable reason to get dressed up. And Georgine offers up a plethora of cocktail party inspired garments.

Last winter I had the please of attending Gerorgine’s Fall 2017 runway show during NYFW and it was quite the show, you read more that here. Known for creating youthful and bold clothes with a rock-n-roll flare, the line up for spring 2018 is an elegant take on this from the street up aesthetic.

with it’s electric hued pops of color, less then demure finishes and animal print accents, this collection is not for the  more timid clothes horse

With fitted long hemmed pencil dresses featuring ruffle detailing to wide legged pants suits and trench coat frocks we are seeing a bit of a more grown up tone. Though rest assured with it’s electric hued pops of color, less then demure finishes and animal print accents, this collection is not for the timid clothes horse.

With it’s mid-weight over coats, long hemlines and fur wraps these are garments intended for the in-between weather that early spring is know for. You will also see lots of pattern mixing, and a happy blend of florals, graphics and polkadots.

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 - [email protected] - 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.
