Return Of The '70s
For 2015, the ’70s are back! I loved the fringe bags worn with chic shirt dresses, bell bottoms and chambray overalls at Rebecca Minkoff. Photo: Rebecca Minkoff Spring '15
Flatforms are everywhere this season. Some of my faves were at DKNY and Derek Lam—I love when the fashion gods give us shoes that are cool and comfy! Photo: Derek Lam Spring '15
The Alexander Wang show had his signature sports-inspired aesthetic, and the bags played off that to perfection. It’s so refreshing to see a new bag shape! Photo: Alexander Wang Spring '15, Getty Images
The bucket bags at Phillip Lim are a great update on the classic black bucket bag from fall, and the cutouts make them feel modern and light for the season. Photo: Phillip Lim Spring '15
Long baseball caps as seen at Mara Hoffman. The entire collection was such a lovely explosion of print, and this look capped it off beautifully. Photo: Mara Hoffman Spring '15
