Street Style: Rue St. Michel

We love leather jackets as much as the next person, but we'll admit that they aren't exactly very warm. We love the way Alex expertly sported her vintage wool jacket underneath, and topped off the look with a beautiful tie-dyed scarf reminiscent of kindergarten's craft project fun. The ensemble, with its warm colors and textures is not only aesthetically pleasing to the eye, but also perfect for bracing the harsh Parisian winters.

Street Style: Summery Autumn

I'm usually not a huge fan of leggings in general. I find tights to be much more flattering and serve the same purpose. However, when you've got legs like these, anything goes. I love recycling summery prints for autumn and winter wear, and in cases like this, pairing black and grey cardigan/flats with your summer flocks can keep the focus on the color of the dress. This look is just so darn fresh, elegant, and perfect for autumn/spring, the "transitional" seasons.

Street Style: Starry Night

I was immediately drawn to the little stars on Jessica's scarf as I passed her on the street. They really make her eyes sparkle, and she emits such a youthful innocence. This almost reminded me of the French novella Le Petit Prince, which is a remarkably delightful novel on the beauty of youth in which the main character counts his lucky stars; I highly suggest the book if you haven't already read it.

Street Style: Faux Fur and Leather

Camille's channeling her inner rock with her faux fur and liquid leggings. She's taken a few staples and layered them together well. The mono-chromatic ensemble works with the different textures she's chosen - wool grey cardigan, faux fur, and leather. We give her A for finished product.

Street Style: Classy Retro

We were immediately drawn to Lilia's quiet confidence in her neutral-colored palette. The structure of her exquisite vintage bag and coat is emphasized by her perfectly placed and selected belt. Berlin fashion is usually more unknown for its more risky and edgy cuts and colors, but she proved that every fashion-forward city needs its token classy pixie-haired resident.

Street Style: Parisian Hues

We love animal print as much as the next person, but red leopard print? That's something only a Parisian could pull off. We also love how she kept the attention on the print with her nude-colored heels, a should-be staple in every woman's wardrobe. The leather bomber jacket keeps this dress appropriate for fall, and voila, there you have it - an effortlessly sexy fall ensemble.

Street Style: Robson Street, Vancouver

I love gingers. This Aussie caught my attention right away as I was strolling down Robson Street. Her nautical stripes, high waisted skirt, and sandals are perfect for the summer, but with the jacket and tights, the outfit immediately transforms itself into autumn chic.
Not to mention, she's absolutely beautiful.

Spotlight: I AM NY Magazine

I AM NY magazine is run by one of our friends, Tiffany Tzeng and we were lucky enough to be featured in her latest issue. With a layout that's chic and modern and with lifestyle notes ranging from fabulous eats to noble causes, we have a feeling that I AM NY will be hitting bookshelves any day now. As things stand however, you can get your fill of I AM NY right here at the Fashion Society.

The layout she chose n'est pas mal! Don't you think?

We also wanted to let you all know that we'll be posting just once a week for a while now. What can we say? Life is madness.

Street Style: Polka Dots and Stripes

It's the time-old cliche, but French girls really do have a certain savoir-faire.

Spotlight: StyleStalker

A Friend of ours sent us this video and we almost had a fab attack. The music, the model, the clothing...what's not to love? Stylestalker seems to capture So-Cal fashion effortlessly and somehow combines Romanesque braids with a beachy vibe. How do they do it? How the heck are we supposed to know?! All that we can say for sure is that Stylestalker has a new stalker...or two.


Until next time

Designer Spotlight: Future Classics

It's almost September and school's already in session for a lot of us. That means one thing: goodbye summer, hello autumn! As much as I love the sun, I have to admit that I love my fall wardrobe more. Vests, cashmere, leggings, tights - Future Classic's A/W 2010 collection has it all! Future Classic's designer Julie Wilkins proved that monochromatics don't always have to be boring or 'safe'. On the contrary, her neutral-colored hooded sweaters command attention.

What are some of your fall wardrobe staples?

Street Style: Little Black (& White) Dress

I personally love the simplicity of this black and white dress with an elegant ponytail. She looks poised and confident, young yet sophisticated. This is one of the looks I'll miss seeing come fall! (Yikes, it's almost September).

Street Style: Classy Casual

We like a good blazer as much as the next fashion bloggers but when we saw this slouchy, oversized summer blazer mixed with casual acid wash jeans and moccasins we simply had to stop. We love how she somehow captures a feeling of Native American chic with her leather bag, but keeps it classy and casual with the outerwear and denim. Some people just know how to steal the show.

Runway Spotlight: Anti Avanti by StarStyling

Starstyling's Anti Avanti was by far our favorite collection at Berlin Fashion Week S/S 2011.

The heart of the collection are handpainted designs and graphic prints inspired by the bandings found in agate stones, with unisex tops and leggings getting extra layers through additional transfer prints.

The big-shirt variations are combined with male and female washed-out frayed indigo denim styles and pieces in skin-colored net or linen with set-on bags and seams covered with holografic foil.

The line is ridiculously affordable - prices start at 40 euro!! We'll be hitting the stores come March 2011.

Street Style: Summer Swing

Someone once said that elegance is when you can take a picture of someone at any given moment and find them in a beautiful position. This couple is elegant down to their fingertips.

Designer Spotlight: Christopher Kane and Christopher Bailey

Christopher Kane is definitely making a name for himself in the fashion world. With focuses like nuclear bombs and nebular explosions for his vivid textiles, his clothes are colorful, beautiful and somehow still simple. On the other hand,everyone and their mother knows about Burberry Prorsum and the little genius behind it all known as Christopher Bailey. Season after season he stuns us with his classic London looks and his ever refreshing take on the trench. After reviewing the the pre-collection from these tippity top English designers we couldn't help but comment on the biggest contrast in London fashion week. The contrast between the two Christopers can be seen in everything from color and cut to fabric and styling. So, now that you've heard the low down think you can guess whose collection is whose?

Street Style: Vancouver

There's really no sight more beautiful than a boy in a fedora, is there? Well, actually, maybe a boy in cuffed pants, a denim button down and a fedora could win that race. Wait a mintue, we think that maybe a boy in cuffed pants, a denim button down, a fedora, a cool expression and an adorable girlfriend who wears cardigans and has a tattoo could be the top prize winner. Hmm, well now that we think about it maybe a boy in a fedora...

well you get the idea.

Roksanda Ilincic's 2011 Resort Pre-Collection Preview

Roksana Ilincic's Resort 2011 collection is, in our eyes, perfection. We love dresses, and we love color, and this collection seems to have a lot of both. The fun belts keep these dresses from being too shapeless, yet the voluminous skirts and lighter fabrics keep it comfortable for summer. Normally we use summer as an occasion to go all out on color, but we're even huge fans of her black and white dresses (shown above) - asymmetry is back and it's hotter than ever.

What are your favorite Resort 2011 collections?
