We said peace out to the Big Apple, cheerio to London, kissed Milan goodbye, and now, it’s au revoir to Paris—yes, the biggest fall 2014 runway shows around the world are officially over. Until September, fashion week!
There was one lady that was a constant presence in our fashion week insider reporting, from the front row of the catwalk to the design house’s after party. Trend setter, New York “It” girl, and fashionista extraordinaire Olivia Palermo may be in the midst of planning a wedding to beau Johannes Huebl, but that didn’t stop this socialite from jetsetting around the world for the sake of style. Her signature aesthetic for the season? A layered look that utilized multiple prints, textures, and colors, combining multiple statement making pieces into one fluid and flawless ensemble. Tweed, fur, jacquard, and leather, polka dots, florals, tartan, and technicolor, here are our five favorite looks from Lincoln Center to the Carrousel de Lourve.
1. Palermo sat front row at the Nina Ricci fall 2014 show in Paris wearing a cropped shearling jacket and crocodile print midi skirt by the designer and a Tibi top. She perfected the the navy and black color combination by finishing the look with suede knee-high boots and a blue belt.
2. We loved this New Yorker’s London look at the Peter Pilotto show February 17th. Red accessories like her Christian Louboutin boots and Whistles clutch gave her romantic Matthew Williamson skirt a powerful pop of color.
3. During New York Fashion Week, Palermo proved that her eye for fashion involves an expertise for mixing high and low pieces. Her pink tote may be Delvaux Tempête Cardinal and that fabulous color-blocked coat is DVF, but Palermo’s leopard print trousers are from Banana Republic.
4. On March 4th, Palermo attended Paris Fashion Week’s Valentino show in satin green shorts, a lace blouse, and a multi colored butterfly boucle, all styles that appeared in Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pier Paolo Piccioli’s whimsical collection.
5. Palermo took to the Marchesa couture show in NYC February 12th wearing tweed separates from the design house’s contemporary line, Marchesa Voyage. The plaid top gave it an edgy feel.
