»· Style Icon: Miroslava Duma ·«

October 12, 2011

During New York Fashion Week I saw a girl wearing this Derek Lam cape jacket and ferociously stalked street style blogs until I found out who she was/where I could get that amazing jacket. Her name is Miroslava Duma and her style is the pinpoint of what I deem as perfection. Sometimes boho, sometimes minimal and chic, sometimes straight up glamorous, Miroslava never falls into one style category. Amen!

She used to be an editor at Harpers Bazaar Russia and now does freelance work for a number of editorials but honestly, this girl should add stylist to her resume. She’s not afraid to combine Zara with Christopher Kane (two of my favorites) and I love how she knows hot to dress for her body. I seriously have bookmarked at least 50 photos of her outfits, but this collage is a mash-up of some of my favorites.

Day four and five of Fashion Week have thankfully been a bit slower than the previous three days. Sunday started off with a big bang because not only was I seeing Derek Lam, one of my favorite designers, but I was seated right behind Anna Wintour. Gotta love that bob! As usual, I loved the collection which featured amazing smokey blue jackets and billowing gowns with leather bodices. Directly following Lam was Timo Weiland’s presentation which had the most amazing pair of trousers I think I’ve ever seen. Constructed out of thick wooly plaid, the pants had a sailor feel with buttons going all the way down the front. So far this season has really delivered some incredible trousers that I need to get my hands on as soon as possible. I was initially supposed to go to Lela Rose after Timo, but backstage beauty called at DKNY so I bid the tents adieu and headed downtown.

The backstage at DKNY was out of this world. Not only did I get a first hand view of the collection which had beautifully bright colors ranging in the corally reds and oranges, but I got to interview two of my favorite models, Bregje Heinen and Sigrid Agren both of whom are about fifty times more beautiful in person. I had some time to kill before my next show, so I went home to hang out with the Finn dog before making my way to Milk Studios for Cushnie et Ochs.

My eyes immediately lit up when I went backstage at Cushnie as I saw models walking around with tiger lily feathers in their hair. Had I been a dog at this moment, my tail would have been wagging profusely. My tail would have continued wagging during the collection as it featured heavily fringed dresses and lots of leather - two of my fashion favorites.

Monday began bright and early with the Jenny Packham show which I made just in the nick of time. I wasn’t wowed by the entire collection, but loved the heavily beaded dresses and pants! that had squiggly sequin embellishments all over them. Next up was the Callula Lillibelle presentation which showed a pair of black patent leather gloves and green sequin leggings that I need to get my hands on right away. Next up was Carlos Miele and Tracy Reese, both of which I enjoyed thoroughly but couldn’t swindle a good photograph of. I went goo-goo-ga-ga over a floor length lime green and royal blue dress at Carlos Miele and was drooling over the 70s overtoned dresses at Tracy Reese.

I was relieved to have the rest of the day off yesterday, but have about a zillion shows to go to today so fret not, more is to come!

Spring 2010: DEREK LAM

Derek Lam’s ss/2010 collection might be one of my favorites this season. There’s something to be said for classic designs, and Derek Lam has done just that. Piece after piece was bright, feminine, colorful, and so classically beautiful that I couldn’t help but picture Katharine Hepburn in some of these looks. No piece was like the other yet they all fit together beautifully as a collection. Inspired by the 1940′s and New England vacation spots, Lam pulled together an all American collection that makes me want to skip the fall/winter seasons and get right on to spring.
