Paris Fashion Week is in full swing and once again, us New York fashion girls have to attend from home! Congratulations to Joseph Altuzarra for another incredible collection. I am taking my front row seat in this perfect Altuzarra three piece nude set to show my love! You’ll catch more of these amazing sets in the FW 2021 collection as well. This is a look I will be living in as we roll into spring and summer. The way Altuzarra does ribbed sets is incredible and really plays with the female form. It is bold and I adore it. Bravo!
I got extra polished to kick off the Altuzarra SS21 runway show. Remotely of course. I promise to be back in Paris soon! Dreaming, dreaming, dreaming. For now, I brought Paris to the streets of NYC. Altuzarra is elegant, classic, and just absolutely ravishing. I have never felt more powerful and more beautiful than in this look. You put it on and immediately become the woman you’ve always dreamt of being. Confident. Sexy. Classy. Altuzarra is all of these things and this Fall 2020 runway look gives me all of those feelings with this perfectly simple dress. Simple in idea, yet so complex in the little details. Now this is high fashion. Sometimes less really is more isn’t it when you’re wearing one of the most amazing designers in the world?
Paris Fashion Week came and went, with most of us taking our front row seats in front of our computer screens from home. AKRIS launched their Spring/Summer 2021 show a bit differently this season. Rather than a runway show, AKRIS came out with a beautiful work of art, an exclusive film directed by award-winning director Anton Corbijn. Think neon lights, beautiful silhouettes, and pops of color. I love how creative designers are getting in showcasing their collections this year. To support, I threw on this totally luxurious Akris leather suit from the Fall 2020 runway. Gave it a red lip, and let the extra oversize and long pant leg fall over a good pair of loafers. Fitted on top. Slouchy at the bottom. Just the way I like it. The woven leather tote is a new addition to my closet. A timeless piece that is waiting to travel the world with me. Until next time, Paris.
New York, London, Milan, and Paris. It’s that time of year again. Fashion month. I got to kick it off extra early last week in New Zealand of all places, and I am still recovering from the jet-lag. I’m using this holiday weekend to really just get my much needed sleep before one of the busiest months of the year. Paris is certainly the highlight. I love waking up in Place Vendome at the most beautiful place to stay, The Ritz Paris, before slipping away into a visual dream at each show. The locations, like here at the stunning Cartier chateau, are gems. It’s like stepping into a picture book. Every detail. Every corner is immaculate. I like my wardrobe to feel the same when I’m in France. This is what a New Yorker in Paris looks like. Leather trench coats. Printed tights. Tulle dresses. Accentuated shoulders. Pastel suits. In Paris, living and dressing is art.
