NYFW, The Outtakes

Saks’ Official New York Fashion Week Street Style Photographer shares some of her best shots!

Where did she get that? Why Saks, of course! As you know by now, we tapped Karen Blanchard, the uber cool, camera toting, well-shod blogger of Where Did U Get That? to capture the latest trends at New York Fashion Week for Saks.com. Karen braved frigid winter temperatures, a blizzard named Nemo and a dearth of available taxis, all in the name of fashion. Here are some of her favorite outtakes from our shoot! “The biggest challenge of shooting fashion week in February is the temperature. It’s so much colder in New York in February….and yet everyone manages to dress smart and cool and chic in every outfit.”   “There’s such troupers, they’re the fashion soldiers,” says Blanchard of well-dressed industry-types. “You see women in…

“The biggest challenge of shooting fashion week in February is the temperature. It’s so much colder in New York in February….and yet everyone manages to dress smart and cool and chic in every outfit.”

 

“There’s such troupers, they’re the fashion soldiers,” says Blanchard of well-dressed industry-types. “You see women in the brightest sherbets, pastels, neons — and they’re leaping over puddles and sleet! They contrast beautifully with the city.

 

 Miroslava Duma, wearing Chanel Haute Couture, Blanchard’s favorite street style subject.

 

“As far as jewelry I’ve always thought that during winter it’s less seen, so I always look to those trying to work against that and work in the jewelry anyway. Perfect layering pieces to pop out of a coat sleeve!”

 

“There are a lot of people on the streets themselves that nobody knows…I call them the phantom stars.”

Downtown Girl in an Uptown World

Style blogger Lainy Hedaya takes a spin in the latest from Helmut Lang in NYC

Lainy Hedaya’s style is decidedly downtown, even though her address isn’t. The New York City style blogger of Haute Inhabit, is known for her edgy looks — Helmut Lang is one of her favorite designers — but perhaps surprisingly, she spends much of her time in uptown Manhattan, where she gathers inspiration for her blog, takes in world class art and sketches fashion looks. Here, Saks spends a day uptown with Lainy, as she wears her favorite new look from the Helmut Lang spring collection, which Vogue called the “fashion equivalent of fashionable surf and turf,” with  boxy jackets and short suits inspired by all things nautical. The “urban ocean”-themed collection is a departure for Lang designers  Nicole and Michael Colovos, who took inspiration from…

Lainy Hedaya’s style is decidedly downtown, even though her address isn’t. The New York City style blogger of Haute Inhabit, is known for her edgy looks — Helmut Lang is one of her favorite designers — but perhaps surprisingly, she spends much of her time in uptown Manhattan, where she gathers inspiration for her blog, takes in world class art and sketches fashion looks. Here, Saks spends a day uptown with Lainy, as she wears her favorite new look from the Helmut Lang spring collection, which Vogue called the “fashion equivalent of fashionable surf and turf,” with  boxy jackets and short suits inspired by all things nautical. The “urban ocean”-themed collection is a departure for Lang designers  Nicole and Michael Colovos, who took inspiration from the drawings of  nineteenth-century German biologist Ernst Haeckel and tapped tattoo artist Thomas Hooper to recreate his drawings as seen on the jacket in this story.

“I love Helmut Lang because their designs are very sexy. Not sexy in a sense that they are revealing, but the edge and cleanliness of the design is what makes it so attractive. I like this outfit because it’s very comfortable — I can run around in it all day and feel good.”

“Art and fashion blend in a sense that the materials and composition in a garment can be applicable to art.”

“The innate foundation of what I am inspired by comes from my childhood, James Bond films, 18th Century and modern architecture.”

“When I design something I am mainly focused on the construction of the garment. I like things that are complex.”
