The color this trifecta of style-setting editors–from left, Julie Pelipas, Fashion Director Vogue Ukraine, center, Samira Nasr, Executive Fashion Director Vanity Fair and right, Irina Linovich, International Producer Vogue Ukraine, decided to base their summer looks during the Paris couture shows might be basic, but it is anything but boring. Beige and shades of khaki look sharp and crisp in the summer, and look best highlighted with white, black and a flash of gold jewelry.
What I love most about Julie and Irina’s looks (besides their Bottega Veneta bags which I am sure were an editor gift), is they incorporated pieces from another season–Julie is wearing last year’s Celine shoes, Irina in hoops (also possibly Celine) she wore last summer. (I can’t identify Samira’s clothes.) I am always preaching buy less buy better, because in this day and age you must be thoughtful about how you consume. When these women, who have access to the best and newest out there, choose to revisit their closet it speaks volumes. I hope I start to see it more.

“Buy less-Buy better” is an important takeaway, and something I have to constantly remind myself of in our trend-driven consumer culture. (I’m not sure I get the black shoe/white shoe thing…does this mean she has an identical pair at home?)
It’s actually how the pair of shoes came…..
