If there’s one lesson we learned from the Fall 2014 runways, it’s that camel comes in many shades. From New York to Paris, designers gave us a plethora of camel outerwear to choose from – fur-collared, belted and oversized versions led the herd. Here’s a roundup of camel coat inspiration from the streets of New York, London, Paris, Sweden, and Moscow…

Street Style Inspiration :: Olivia Palermo in Paris

It’s no secret that Olivia Palermo is one of my all-time favourite style muses. When it comes to poise and putting together the perfect outfit, Olivia penned the manual. For the Spring 2015 shows in Paris, the New York native served up her signature polished style for our viewing pleasure.

Street Style Inspiration :: Grey sweatshirt + metallic skirt

garance dore in grey sweatshirtleigh lezark in grey sweatshirt

Garance Dore and Leigh Lezark school us on the proper way to wear metallics before the sun goes down – pair a metallic skirt with a simple grey sweatshirt.

For fall 2014, Diane von Furstenberg sent out short metallic wrap dresses while gold and silver bags shone at Prada. Models’ eyes got the glittery treatment at Dior and Altuzarra while golden manicures showed up at Tadashi Shoji. At Mara Hoffman, the tips of braids were dipped in gold while at Suno, models sported gold centre parts.

I really love this metallic pleated skirt by Mango.

Are you on board with this trend?

Style Inspiration :: Miroslava Duma at Spring 2015

When fashion week season rolls around, I always look forward to Miroslava Duma’s risk-taking style. When the founder of Buro 24/7 steps out, street style photographers Tommy Ton, Youngjun Koo, Phil Oh and Scott Schuman aren’t far behind. For the Spring 2015 shows, the mother-to-be opted for a slew of beautiful coats, dresses and heels (ninety-five per cent of the time).

This season’s favourites: the black tank dress topped with a camel coat in New York, the embellished coat paired with Converse sneakers in Milan, and the houndstooth wool dress, the leopard print coat and the blue Valentino cape in Paris.

Spring 2015 :: Denim Delight

For Spring 2015, designers breathed new life into an old classic.

In New York, we spotted patchwork denim pieces at Tommy Hilfiger and dark denim at Michael Kors. On the London runways, models got cozy in shearling-trimmed indigo denim jackets from Burberry Prorsum. In Milan, rhinestone-studded boyfriend jeans sparkled at Dolce & Gabbana while denim joined the military at Gucci. And finally in the City of Light, denim overalls made an appearance at Sonia Rykiel and denim dresses and skirts went to great lengths at Chloe and Stella McCartney.

It’s safe to say that denim days are here to stay.

But the denim love didn’t end there.

On the streets of New York, London, Milan and Paris, show-goers remained true to their blues; dashing around in dark wash and light wash styles, destroyed boyfriend and skinny jeans, denim cut-offs, patchwork blues and jean jackets emblazoned with colourful patches, cuffed straight-leg jeans, denim overalls, and frayed chambray dresses and button-downs.

PFW Spring 2015 :: Models Off Duty

Fashion month is winding down and Paris gave us a finale for the books. For his final ready-to-wear runway show, legendary Parisian designer Jean Paul Gaultier said goodbye to ready-to-wear with a beauty pageant like no other. For Chanel’s Spring 2015 show, the models made a statement in Karl Lagerfeld’s mock feminist street protest. Off the runway, Caroline Brasch Nielsen, Anna Ewers, Andreea Diaconu, Natalia Vodianova, Aymeline Valade and company turned up the Parisian chic.

It’s day 4 of Milan Fashion Week and the fashion crowd show no signs of slowing down. Playing it safe has no place in Milan. The city’s street style is all about having fun and adopting a playful attitude – glamorous sequins, bold prints and colours, embellishments and accessories galore.

LFW Spring 2015 :: Ladylike in London

For Spring 2015, London showgoers got in touch with their ultra-feminine side. Pleated and full skirts, statement coats, light and airy fabrics with a healthy dose of fur, lace and embellishments mixed in ruled the streets. Here’s a roundup of lovely, ladylike looks from London Town.

Style Inspiration :: Olivia Palermo at Spring 2015

OP fringe and pleats

No matter the occasion, Olivia Palermo always manages to be camera-ready. For the Spring 2015 shows in New York, Olivia doubled up on pleats at Tibi, channeled the western look in a leather fringe skirt and suede blouse at Rachel Zoe, and got all wrapped up at DVF.

On the streets of London, the street style star was snapped wearing a multi-coloured Matthew Williamson coat which she styled as a dress, a lady-like lace Burberry dress with a twist, and a knotted camo shirt with a peplum hem mini skirt.

She’s not afraid to mix things up and still manages to look impeccably polished. Elegant, effortless, edgy.
