Loeffler Randall

I was recently out in Brooklyn visiting with a girlfriend who works in fashion PR. These girls always know what’s cool and true to form she walked in the door and I obsessed over her shoes and bag. “Where are they from?” I asked, “Loeffler Randall“. Of course they are.

It seems almost every time I love a New York girlfriend’s shoes they are Loeffler Randall. I myself am a fan girl… I’ve worn them to the beach, at southern mansion cocktail parties, and over coffee in L.A. They are easy and cool. Quality and comfortable. Or, as the founder and designer Jessie Randall puts it, “understated, elegant, effortless.” I stopped by their Soho studio to see what’s new this summer, what I will be lusting after like those red strappy heels above… UGH sooo good. And to talk with the beautiful designer herself only to realize, the products are good because the soul of the designer is too…

If you could give advise to yourself 10 years ago when you started Loeffler Randall, what would it be?

Ralph Lauren

Ralph Lauren's Fall 2016 collection shown at New York Fashion Week

The close of New York Fashion Week always ends on a high note for me with the Ralph Lauren collection. Usually I come for the gowns, which are the most beautiful classic American study in simplicity and elegance.

However, for the Ralph Lauren Fall 2016 presentation I was more enamored with the first 14 or so looks that came quiet and confidently down the runway. Beige on beige on beige was the story in smart men’s tailoring that looked both chic and comfortable. It’s a certain kind of woman who can pull these off, someone with personality and brains, like a Diane Keaton character in some bygone rom-com. She dresses for herself and doesn’t need the fleeting attention of the flashy spotlight to for validation, she already has it sewn into the fabric of her being…

Marchesa

Marchesa Fall 2016 collection from New York Fashion Week

You can always expect the drama to be turned up at a Marchesa show and this Fall 2016 collection is right on cue. Inspired by the royal gardens at Highgrove House and the work of Edwardian society artist John Singer Sargent, each of these beauties appear to be a garden rose plucked at the height of beauty to be presented with regal pose to the courts. Marchesa has reminded me that we are all queens of our worlds, and though the tulle, feathers and organza is soft, our confidence is strong…

Naeem Khan

Naeem Khan Spring / Summer 2016 collection at New York Fashion Week

Today I head out to cover the last few days of New York Fashion Week which should prove to make some interesting Snapchat { add me! AnnStreetStudio } content. Aside from my usual loves, Marchesa and Ralph Lauren, I’ll be covering Naeem Khan. Images here are from his Spring 2016 show of a collection inspired by Grace Kelly,  Sophia Loren, a trip to Mexico, Frida Kahlo’s style, and the blossoming flowers of the Mediterranean. I think it’s quite clear, when Mr. Khan dreams of a woman, he sees us blooming at our most splendid…
