Amongst the things to do aside from runway during Paris Fashion Week include indulging on pain au chocolats, having un biere at La Perle and chowing down on Moroccan goodness at Chez Omar.

The buzzy word around Paris Paris is of course your usual big names like Dior and Chanel, but pay close attention to Hakaan Yildirim who has the editors, models and pretty young things clamoring for more. After a stellar show last season in London, the Turkish-born designer has moved onto primetime – namely Paris Fashion [...]
We wouldn’t say songstress Lullaby Baxter is mainstream in the least, but even so we couldn’t keep our eyes off this creepy/artsy/very cool video for her single “Rattled Little Clam.” Something about the lighting coupled with the strange vintage-y aesthetic screams horror movie flick. Though with her smooth vocals, the combo is just perfect for this [...]

But one surefire way to spot a Kate Lanphear, Sarah Rutson or other fashion notable isn’t only strategically planning your show stalking. Instead, try heading to Colette where there’s a heavy-hitter roster [...]
Mon dieu! If illustator aleXsandro Palombo doesn’t draw some ire with his latest round of illustrations (and printed in a handy-dandy sticker format perfect for defacing bathrooms) then we’d say the fashion institution can at least have a nice laugh. The Vogue empire lands in Paris today for the kickstart of Paris Fashion Week and [...]
While the European Spring 2011 collections continue on with bold-faced brands in Paris, there’s some buzzy young designers on the continent to pay attention to. Barcelona-based line Txell Miras riffed on the neoprene trend with a scuba-styled SS11 collection. But the more important overarching trend isn’t the sea, but rather the black and white palette [...]
It’s a rainy day in NYC today, which means in weather parlance at least, fall is officially here. But if you’re still stuck in summer mode, comfort yourself with the fashion mood of the moment. Fall is the season to get creative, layer it on and play style to the hilt.
