New York Fashion Week Moment. Photo by Rachel Guillaume for Sarara Couture.
Every season, what I most look forward to are the accessories we see on the streets. Some of those of course are entering the shows. Now, it is true that of a few of these are given by the designers to the wearers and represent the runways. However, the unique interpretations we see outside each fashion week keep us smiling and inspiring. I love what the the models wear in between shows, their own interpretations, the writers, the editors etc. It’s not about the “trend”, but about how everyone makes their own looks using these little accessories gems. There were some definite themes and some fun inspiration possibilities this season. Designers were mixing it up with straight off the runway fall collection availability and change was in the air. We saw metallics shoes and accents, cat eye styles and mirrored sunglasses (hail to the 80s and 90s -yes I remember these- as a baby;) #iwish #oldish), stripes, things also were a bit punk or studded, light denim was about, handbags are smaller and belts are big again, just to summarize a few things we spied. What I love about street style, is in the way everyone seems to be in a rhythm….giving us hints about fashion weeks to come….Yet showing us what can be made wearable. Yes it is a high stakes game, but there are true flashes of brilliance and realism there too.
This time we wanted to pull together some looks we spotted and coveted by accessory type, giving readers some alternatives as to where to find those piece or something similar they desire. There is always a lot of vintage used during fashion week which I applaud, so we will do our best to discuss a few options! One thing is for sure this fall and coming spring seems to be all about the shoes. Embroidered, colorful, metallic, studded, metal details…..it’s time to pamper your foot.

See through boots by Noelle, feel a bit naughty and I know some anti toe people won’t feel that these are for them. I thought they were unique and let me say pointed heel fans will be happy as they are indeed something we see in the coming year. Rachel Guillaume photo.
Obsessed with these velvet Prada sandals, just a tad 90s-reminding me of the good old days! Rachel Guillaume photo.
