Joanna Hillman teaches a lesson in layering with leopard, leather and her signature red lips without even coming anywhere near the tacky side of things. Her 3.1 Phillip Lim jacket has just the right leopard print – really, it is quite hard to find a good ‘spot’ – and is such a good mix with these baggy leather pants.
Also, I love how she added a white turtle neck to balance out the dark colors.
Even though I love myself some exciting shapes when it comes to clothes every now and then, one can never go wrong with a French uniform.
Can it be made in black pretty please? (Do they already make it in black?)
There’s so much pink this season it is almost overwhelming.
It ís overwhelming really.
It all started with the designers’ little trend helpers whispering to each other what color should be thé next hue to cover ourselves in. And where there were a few pink hints on the SS13 runways already, Topshop Unique and Rosanda Ilincic went all-in with head to toe rose looks, while Carven and Mulberry stuck to oversized coats for the Fall/Winter season.
Like in most other trend stories, all the high street chains followed rapidly with pink pants, pink tops, pink blazers, pink bags, pink coats… I am not even sure I can handle another rose tinted coat.
Jessie’s hair on the other hand though, sweet as Hubba Bubba gum. And oh, how she cleverly paired it with all tones of pink while hopping shows in Paris. Even with clashing ones (which I personally think worked the best). LOVE!
Pink seemed to be the top popping color of sartorial choice on street style walkers as well. And this makes me wonder, do we really care if a color looks great (not good, we need great here) on us or do we blindly follow what is most notably present in stores that season? (I really have no right of speaking in this one, since I clearly chronically ignore all things saturated.) But I am curious…
Also, no offense (I wouldn’t mind a fluffy cotton candy colored Carven coat either, I just don’t think it anything pink is worth the investment for a neutral-color-loving-person), but where are we going to leave all the pink stuff when the season is over? Are we still going to wear it? Are we going to throw it all away and change for yellow (or green, or blue, or whatever is next)? Hmmm.
What do you think?
PS: I am on my way to LA as we speak!! I don’t normally ‘woop’, but this certainly calls for one (or two), woop woop!
