Midnight Inspirations: London/Milan/Paris SS'14 Fashion Week Wrap Up!

October 3, 2013
While working for Elsa Klensch back in the day I covered designers in their fashion houses such as the house of Verdura in NYC as well as designers on the runway. I remember attending a Marc Jacobs show in his store on Mercer Street in 1998 and feeling that feeling of "I am doing what I love". So today I bring you my Fashion Week wrap up from London, Milan and Paris and some of my favorite standouts! #igelstyle

Definition of a standout: a person or thing of exceptional ability or high quality.

Christopher Kane

The "crew" sweatshirt continues to be a wardrobe staple this season and will be moving forward into Spring 2014 as seen here at Chirstopher Kane. I am big fan pairing your crew with a fancier skirt as it it takes your outfit from day into evening. Effortless Chic.


The Classic Missoni Chevron was reinterpreted as waves or birds seen throughout the collection. When I doodle I draw my waves and birds this way similar to when I was a little girl. I also tend to take a lot of photographs of birds, waves and water which you can see all over my instagram. I guarantee you will be joining me this SS'14 rocking some these elements whether in your accessories, shoes or a full dress!
Julien David

Oversized hoodies, life-preserver intarsia sweaters, varsity jackets made longer into dresses...check.check.check!  Julien David similar to what I loved about Missoni was inspired by the water "The Tribe of the Seven Seas". I think I will be sailing all summer long...whose joining me?! :)

Oh Chanel...you had me at Chanel. This SS'14 show had a bit of everything I adore! Blazers worn over dresses and skirts, hints of pink, more black and white, emphasis on collars, a hint of crop tops, distressed denim and a spring standout this coming 2014 COLOR!  Classic with an Edge.
