I started with the most common style. It is easy to pair and definitely goes with everything. The most interesting part of this outfit is the parka. While the exterior of the parka is more rugged and looks “used”, the fur interior adds a hint of glamour and luxury. I wanted to keep up with earthy and neutral tones for the rest of the outfit so it could be an even more perfect everyday ensemble.

The shape if this parka is different from the normal parka style. The shape adds a high fashion look that can definitely dress up any outfit. I decided to add distressed blue jeans with a cashmere turtleneck to balance everything out. The black bag and shoes can then complete the whole ensemble. So, the ripped jeans and parka keep the outfit casual while the accessories glamorize it.

Generally in the winter, people tend to stay away from colors. So, to stray from the status quo, I decided to add some color. I thought that this parka with a blue fur trim and interior added a bit of a twist alongside the Chanel denim bag. Because the jacket does all the talking, I decided to keep the rest of the outfit simple and neutral.

Back to the 90s, we went as Prada left its hometown to present its second cruise collection on the seventh floor of the Herzog & de Meuron designed Prada HQ in New York. The star-studded event which saw the likes of Selena Gomez, Dakota Fanning, Marc Jacobs, Uma Thurman and Chloë Sevigny, was also live streamed in Times Square. Floating transparent panels hung in the minimalistic space, some in red to recreate an augmented sunset while mirroring the frenetic energy of New York.

Karl Lagerfeld is no stranger to an extravagant backdrop. Having previously held fashion shows with replicas of the Eiffel Tower, a life-size dollhouse and an airline, it seems only logical that Chanel would preview their Cruise 2019 show… on an actual cruise? You may have noticed the words ‘La Pausa’ on the side of the 330-foot-long ship. Named after a villa in the south of France built by Gabrielle ‘Coco’ Chanel in the 30s, the stunning backdrop majestically sat tall at the Grand Palais in Paris, a month after it was announced that Chanel would be pledging $40 million for restoration.
