PFW Fall 2018: Day 5

Day 5 of PFW consisted of re-see's of two of my favorite designers, both of which are very iconic. I ended the day with back to back shows. My sleeping schedule was so off this trip, that by day 5, Anthony and I were pretty exhausted.

Brittany Sullivan from Mane Addicts came over in the morning to do my hair. I wore my hair in loose waves but added some cool bobby pins to the side to accessorize. I've been loving the look of bobby pins and adding accessories to my hair- so fun!

Check out everything I did on day 5 below:

J.W. Anderson Re-See:

My first appointment of the day was the J.W. Anderson re-see. I'm a huge fan of Jonathan Anderson's designs, I love his tailoring and intricate details on many of his pieces.

The collection had a futuristic yet optimistic vibe to it. I liked how androgynous some of the pieces were, the collection included both menswear and womenswear. Some of my favorite details included drop-waist dresses, handkerchief hemlines, ruffles and pleated fabric. Paisley was also a huge pattern used throughout.

The collection won't be available until Fall 2018 but check out a few of my favorite pieces that are out now:

1. Suede Canvas Pumps

2. Pierce Mini Backpack

3. Shearling Jacket

Carolina Herrera Re-See:

Next, I headed to the Carolina Herrera re-see. I was excited to see the latest collection in person as this was Carolina Herrera's last collection as creative director. She was the creative director for over 37 years, so crazy!

Her final collection was inspired by her signature look, a button down shirt, taffeta skirt and contrasting belt. I loved all the vibrant colors within the collection, so many pops of bold color! The collection was filled with statement pieces including an amazing yellow coat with a white and black leopard fur collar.

The collection won't be available until Fall 2018 but check out a few of my favorite pieces that are out now:

1. Metallic Floral Chiffon Gown

2. Strapless Bustier Layered Colorblock Gown

3. Tie Front Blouse

Americans in Paris Presentation:

I then went to the “Americans in Paris” showcase. This initiative was created by the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund as a global showcase for emerging American fashion designers.

It was great to see a few of my favorite American designers while in Paris:

AHLEM Eyewear– Such cool sunglasses and optical glasses all handmade in France.

RtA– A really cool luxury denim brand that combines feminine and androgynous, with street lifestyle.

Chromat– Inspired by architecture and urban design, I love Chromat's really cool swimwear.

Sandy Liang– I was obsessed with Sandy Liang's signature statement jackets. I love the brand's cool girl vibe, including her dresses and denim. The patchwork pastel coat was my absolute favorite.

Akris Runway:

My first show of the day was Akris. The collection was inspired by 1900s Vienna, specifically drawings by Egon Schiele and Madame d’Ora’s photographs. The collection was inspired by the position of women in society changing dramatically.

I loved how the collection had pieces for an active woman. I was obsessed with the masculine trousers, silk blouses, blazers and chunky knits. All the pieces were designed to be lived in. The color palette included a lot of greens, blues and yellows.

The collection won't be available until Fall 2018 but check out a few of my favorite pieces that are out now:

1. Sleeveless Coat Dress

2. Shoulder Tote Bag

3. Micro Leather Crossbody Bag

What I Wore:

To the Akris runway show, I wore this really cool Akris overcoat. I loved the leather detailing!

John Galliano Runway:

My last show of the day was John Galliano. It was an exciting show because the iconic Galliano Gazette made an appearance throughout the collection. The collection was actually inspired by Midwest America after the depression and the idea of a traveling circus coming to town. 

Many of the looks included tweed, denim (inspired by a man’s every day essential) and embroidered tulle and diamonds. I loved all the sheer layers and sequined pieces. It was a very romantic collection!

The collection won't be available until Fall 2018 but check out a few of my favorite pieces that are out now:

1. Black Lace Dress

2. Double Breasted Jacket

3. Chain Bag

What I Wore:

To the John Galliano show, I wore this really cool, John Galliano oversized blue trench coat. I loved the pop of color!

    Such a quality pictures you´ve got over here. It is truly sad, that some of the pieces are not going to be available till spring 2018, like Shearling Jacket – such a beautiful statement piece.

    So many cool pieces coming down the runway. I love how your stylist arranged the bobby pins like that. I’ve never seen that before, so creative!
