Street Style Recap: Wednesday, April 1st 2009:



Paris Vogue's Emmanuelle Alt, at the Hermes show in Paris, looking a bit pissed-off (probably tired of all the photographers, sorry!) keeping warm in a grey ISABEL MARANT shearling coat, black BALMAIN leather trousers, and ISABEL MARANT studded boots.

In NYC is Chloe Kerman of Tank Magazine in a stunning mint green LOUIS VUITTON coat and a green print PRADA dress. I wish I got a better photo, because the coat is really absolutely beautiful. Also in NYC is a dude in a black ATTACHMENT belted coat/robe thing with black jeans and the shiny black LANVIN high-tops. Back to Paris, there's a woman at the Place Vendome wearing mostly black, but with a pair of black/grey plaid plants. Across the Channel in London, we have a girl in a yellow TOFU raincoat over a grey-tshirt that slouches kinda interestingly, with grey CHEAP MONDAY jeans, red OFFICE heels with discreet white polka dots, and a blue TOPSHOP clutch.

Here's Carrie Mundane, designer for CASSETTE PLAYA in Paris after the JEREMY SCOTT show. I wish I could find my notes for this, so I don't remember who made the jacket. But it had some pretty intense leatherwork done all around it. Carrie also is wearing a pretty outrageous KOKON TO ZAI dress, with pink leggings, and pink NIKE sneakers.

Anna Della Russo is in a Parisian courtyard wearing the black/silver BALMAIN marching jacket, and I'm wondering if anyone besides fashion editors actually owns this thing. In Tokyo, we have a girl in all black, with an interestingly textured black cardigan from a Japanese designer along with black AMERICAN APPAREL leggings and a black BALENCIAGA bag. In NYC, there's a girl in a red plaid coat from THE GAP and metallic gold FRYE shoes, and a girl outside the New York Public Library in a blue DIANE VON FURSTENBERG jacket with blue wide-legged LEI LEI pants. Last, we have a dude in London in a blue velvet jacket and torn up jeans.

Here's Fanny and the Cave outside the Doors Jas MB store. She runs a great London showroom. Anyhow, I love her black fur BLESS hood/scarf thing over the black RAF SIMONS sweater dress thing with the silver MARTIN MARGIELA chain belt thing, and her Margiela slouchy boots. Oh, and the blue/black stripey CHRISTIAN DIOR leggings! She's one of my favorite people in London.

There's a man named London -- also one of my new favorite people in Chicago -- in a black lip cut-out JUNYA WATANABE coat over an URBAN OUTFITTERS t-shirt and blue LEVI'S cut-off torn up denim shorts, and a shitload of accessories including an ALEXANDER MCQUEEN skull scarf wrapped around his black BALENCIAGA bag, some fingerless gloves, and KENNETH COLE boots. Eleanor from Sweden is in Paris looking chic in a black RODEBERGER coat and wide-legged NAKKNA pants. Also in Paris' Place Vendome is a young man in a black ZARA trench coat, pink LANVIN high top sneakers, and a grey LOUIS VUITTON bag. Matthew Harris in NYC in a black vintage LANVIN fur vest over a red plaid shirt, black CHEAP MONDAY jeans, and carrying the upside-down YSL tote-bag, and Aya has on a VINTAGE leather jacket, CHANEL skirt and bag, black SUPERFINE jeans and a pair of CHRISTIAN LOUBOUTINS.

I'm always impressed by people who love a designer so much, they'll go as close to head-to-toe in it as possible. Mostly seems to happen in Japan, and with labels with cult followings like COMME DES GARCONS or BERNHARD WILLHELM, but here's Yakushi in Tokyo wearing a couple pieces from last season's JEREMY SCOTT collection -- the cherub jacket and the pictureframe print pants, along with shoes from Japanese label, DIET BUTCHER SLIM SKIN.

In Paris is Emma Veronica Johansson from Sweden in a VINTAGE jacket with amazing shiny gold TOPSHOP UNIQUE pants and black shoes from BIBA. Also in Paris is a woman outside the Valentino show in a brown fur coat with a FENDI bag. Men.style.com's Josh Peskowitz is in NYC with a PRADA coat, blue MARTIN MARGIELA pants, TIMBERLAND boots, and the red piggy-print/keffiyeh HENRIK VIBSKOV scarf, and Susie Bubble is in a floral print MISS SELFRIDGE'S leggings.

Sarah Rutson is another of my favorite people to shoot during Fashion Weeks. She's the fashion director of Hong Kong store, Lane Crawford, and apparently a big supporter of street-style websites, as they recently tapped my good pal Jak&Jil for their most recent campaign. Here she is in NYC at the Phi F/W 2009 show in a fabulous RICK OWENS leather jacket with fur-trim, black RICK OWENS drop-crotch pants, and heels from GIVENCHY.

Another favorite is stylist Julia von Boehm, shot here in Paris in a white fur coat and carrying a CHANEL 2.55 bag. Also in Paris is a buyer from Korea in a grey NINA RICCI furry jacket. In Chicago, there's Heiji Choy from Chicago's Hejfina boutique outside her store in a black HELMUT LANG shearling coat over an ALEXANDER WANG vest and layered BALENCIAGA skirt. She's accessorized with a black TSUMORI CHISATO bag, white RACHEL COMEY fur hat, and black MARTIN MARGIELA booties. In NYC is Jeffrey in a beige APC trench coat over a grey COSTUME NATIONAL suit, and a shirt & tie from RAG & BONE. Chantal also has an ALEXANDER WANG vest, with a marching jacket from L'WREN SCOTT, black ZARA drop-crotch pants, and a JAS MB bag.

I got this guy outside the GARETH PUGH fall/winter 09 video presentation in Paris. He kinda had the Germanic/Nordic warrior thing going on with the VINTAGE fur coat, animal skin bag, and long tied up hair -- I liked it!

Also in Paris is Sally Singer, Fashion News Director at Vogue, wearing a black J CREW furry coat with the amazing RODARTE x NICHOLAS KIRKWOOD heels that everyone is going crazy for. In London, I caught a guy leaving the VIVIENNE WESTWOOD store wearing pretty much head-to-toe Westwood. I asked if he worked there, but he claims he's just a really big fan. In NYC, we have Vivan Tang in a PETER PILOTTO trench coat, beige RALPH LAUREN cardigan, with PAUL SMITH pants and accessorizing with a VINTAGE bowtie, PRADA shoes and a SURFACE TO AIR bag. Also there's Mordechai in a VINTAGE ethnic-print coat and LEVI'S jeans, and Rachel Fixed in a stone-colored ZARA coat with a BCBG dress and carrying a bag from FOREVER 21.

Here's stylist Sonny Groo, from Mykro Mag, in Paris wearing a VINTAGE black leather coat with a furry bag that looked like his pet dog, black APC jeans and LANVIN sunglasses. He's always one of my favorite people to photograph at fashion weeks.

In New York, there's Gloria Baum of Teen Vogue in a cute orange plaid Y-3 jacket with rolled-up khaki pants from THE GAP, and slip-on shoes from the VANS x MARC JACOBS collection, and then Sydney Bolden from InStyle Magazine in a grey LANVIN coat and black BALENCIAGA shoes, and also Garrett Munce from W Magazine in a DIESEL leather jacket, a shirt & bowtie, LEVI'S jeans, and shoes from PRADA.
