My Favorite Looks From New York Fashion Week Fall 2015–moncler jackets


My Favorite Looks From New York Fashion Week Fall 2015

New York Fashion Week Fall 2015 wrapped up last week.  It was extremely cold and snowy in New York and for the first time I was not jealous for not being there,moncler womens and was perfectly happy in the spring like conditions of Los Angeles.  As fun as it is to be in New York for these shows,mens moncler jacket you can find fantastic coverage of the shows at Style.com or other web sites and you can even watch all the shows live as they happen.

This season marked the last time the tents will stand in Lincoln Center.  We don’t know where they will be held next time but a lot of designers already showed at other location.  Mercedes-Benz will also pull out as the main sponsor.  It will be interesting to see what happens with the locations and new sponsors for the upcoming shows.

Mean while,moncler canada as usual I like to do a recap of my favorite looks and trends that were seen on the runway mainly for outerwear.  Below are the main trends that I picked up on:

  1. The 70’s vibe
  2. Belted coats and jackets
  3. Floor length coats
  4. Tweeds
  5. Plaids
  6. Suede
  7. Menswear
  8. Furs in all forms

A lot of these trends are perfect for outerwear and let me tell you there were some fantastic pieces on the runway.  I think the designers were inspired to do lots of warm layers and warm cozy fabrics because of the brutal winter season that is happening all across the country.  This was also why there were so many fur pieces in all types and colors.  There were also lots of wraps and shawls which were perfect for cold weather.

Below you can see some my favorite outerwear and jacket looks from NYFW.  Which ones are your favorites?

A New York State Of Mind–moncler jackets

A New York State Of Mind

As I mentioned last week I had planned and booked a long weekend trip to New York City with my son,moncler jakker so last Friday we both headed out to LAX for a short fun trip to Manhattan. Even though it went by very quickly and we are home already,moncler femme we both felt it was the right amount of days for NYC since we have both been there numerous times before and we have seen all the tourist type attractions at least one time if not more. This trip was all about spending time together to enjoy shopping in the city,moncler store getting inspired by some museum exhibitions and energized by the vibe that is so unique to NYC.

Our flight Friday to JFK was smooth with no delays,moncler homme which was great,moncler hats and we actually arrived in the city in time to settle into our hotel and have a nice dinner. We stayed at the Grand Hyatt at 42nd and Lexington right next to the Grand Central Station and next door to the Chrysler Building,moncler kinder which is one of my favorite buildings in the city. We had stayed at the Hyatt once before a few years ago and thought it was a nice hotel with a good central location so that is why we chose it again.

Saturday started out over cast but developed into a beautiful sunny day and we did a lot of walking in mid-town with our first stop being Barney’s which is a must for any visit to Manhattan,moncler jassen especially this time of the year when they have lots of sales. Well,moncler canada lucky me I scored with a beautiful “Theory” blazer that was on sale,moncler coat I will definitely style it and feature it in one of my future blog stories. We continued on to Bloomingdales and stepped into a lot of other shops in between. It was such a beautiful day we could not help but stop by Central Park for lunch and some photos and then we headed up to the Museum of Modern Art (MOMA) to check out the Andy Warhol exhibit of “Campbell Soup Cans” and other works.  We finished the day with a delicious dinner at Scalini Fedeli italian restaurant in TriBeCa.  I highly recommend this restaurant for great food and service and value for a prixe-fixe meal.

Sunday was another beautiful day and after a quick breakfast in Little Italy,moncler vest we set off walking through Chinatown and finally to our main destination, Soho. Even though I still really love and enjoy this area, it is sad to see that all the unique small specialty boutiques have disappeared which was one of the main reasons I used to love so much about Soho. Now all the stores are major brands that we all see everywhere and it has lost its unique appeal a little bit now for us. This is the sad result of landlord greed and how small specialty stores can’t survive the high rents and lack of high priced item sales to pay those rents. Regardless, we still enjoy Soho and we had a great shopping day, with a yummy lunch at the Mercer Kitchen and then later that evening dinner at the Balthazar, both restaurants have been there for a long time but I still love eating at both places and highly recommend them.

Monday we explored the Meat packing district and walked some of the High Line, which is an elevated park that is very popular and for good reason. It’s actually an old rail line that has been re-purposed over the past decade as a 1.45 mile-long green space, running from Meatpacking district to the northern edge of Chelsea. It was inspired by a similar project in Paris “Promenade Plantee” that was completed in 1993. We only walked a part of it as it is quite a long walk and we wanted to cover other areas like West Village and Greenwich Village and Chelsea. Even though we got some serious rain and thunderstorms that afternoon, we managed to see a lot and it was great fun.

Our last day was Tuesday but we only had a half day to accomplish everything as our flight was at 5pm. We were in a “New York City State Of Mind” and I really wanted to see this exhibit that is being held at the Met called “China through the looking glass”.  I am so glad we made the effort to get an early start because it was well worth it, especially for me. Look out next week, I will have a full blog story about this exhibit.

We took a lot of pictures on the trip and it has been hard to edit them for this blog story, but I have included some of our highlights below for you to see.  I had a fantastic time with my son in one of my favorite cities in the world and I can’t wait to go back, but I have to say it feels great to be back home.

Looking forward to hearing some of your thoughts and comments about NYC.

Fashion Movies A look At Some Of The Best So Far

I have always loved going to the movies and my husband and I try to incorporate seeing a good movie into a lot of our date nights. Even when we are staying in at home,moncler womens jackets we always try and find movies we haven’t seen before and watch them on Netflix or Apple TV.

Dior and I (2015)

Frédéric Tcheng’s solo directorial debut brings the viewer inside the storied world of the Christian Dior fashion house with a privileged,moncler womens coats behind-the-scenes look at the creation of Raf Simons’ first haute couture collection as its new artistic director-a true labor of love created by a dedicated group of collaborators. Melding the everyday,moncler gilet pressure-filled components of fashion with mysterious echoes from the iconic brand’s past, the film is also a colorful homage to the seamstresses who serve Simons’ vision.

 

  1. Valentino: The Last Emperor (2008)

This movie provides a first-time glimpse into Valentino’s world of bygone glamour. Filmed from June 2005 to July 2007, the crew shot over 250 hours of footage with exclusive, unprecedented access to Valentino and his entourage. The resulting non-fiction film is a portrait of an extraordinary partnership, the longest running in fashion, and a dramatic story about a master confronting the final act of his celebrated career.

3. Yves Saint Laurent (2014)

In January 1958, Yves Saint Laurent (Pierre Niney) – aged merely 21 – was unexpectedly called upon to oversee the legendary Paris fashion house established by recently deceased Christian Dior. All eyes turned to this very young assistant as he presented his first collection for Dior and instantly ascended to the heights of haute couture’s elite class. During Saint Laurent’s breathtaking and groundbreaking show, he met with another fate in being introduced to Pierre Bergé (Guillaume Gallienne), patron of the arts, future love of his life and lifelong business partner. Three years later, the two founded the Yves Saint Laurent Company, which would rapidly become one of the biggest luxury powerhouses on the planet. Directed by Jalil Lespert with a screenplay by Lespert and Marrie-Pierre Huster, YVES SAINT LAURENT is at once a captivating story about the making of an icon and a testament to the power of enduring love.

 

  1. Coco before Chanel (2009)

Amélie and The Da Vinci Code star Audrey Tautou stars as legendary fashion designer Coco Chanel in this biopic penned by director Anne Fontaine and screenwriter Camille Fontaine in collaboration with Christopher Hampton.

He takes us behind the scenes at Fashion Week, to Europe, on shoots and reshoots, and into closed-door staff meetings, bearing witness to an arduous, entertaining, and sometimes emotionally demanding process. At the eye of this annual fashion hurricane is the two-decade relationship between Wintour and Grace Coddington, incomparable creative director and fashion genius. They are perfectly matched for the age-old conflict between creator and curator. Through them, we see close-up the delicate creative chemistry it takes to remain at the top of the ever-changing fashion field.

 

  1. The eye has to Travel – Diane Vreeland (2011)
