tommy terrific: paris fashion week

i'm feeling incredibly inspired by these images of AW11 paris fashion week street style, captured by tommy ton. this first image reminds me of some wonderful vogue knitting patterns from the 80s.
this ode to schiaparelli's brilliant glove hat could be DIYed with leopard intarsia and some soft, fine-gauge mohair silk. cocktail ring optional.
and speaking of mohair silk, how about a form-fitting pullover knit up in kidsilk haze? covers two trends in one--the midriff and the sheer--and little else!
of course, knitters have been onto the kitty ears trend since blue sky was an alpaca. still, this is a super cute version of the trend and would be a piece of catnip pie to whip up a couple of pom-pom ears and duplicate stitch a simple black cap.
for once, i'm not looking at anna della russo. instead, check out the dude. he abides in a lebowski-worthy pullover that even anna's pink boa can't shock.
i am in love with this particular shade of green at the moment. a violet blouse and leopard spots, takes this simple knit pullover to a whole 'nother level. cascade's ultra pima in "spearmint" would be a minty fresh choice.
i love everything about the styling here. the bright pink cap, red lips, and lady di bobble knit pullover paired with denim workshirt. the uber-straight blonde locks are the perfect finishing touch.
go boho glam with a vintage fur, suede fringe bag, wide belt and slouchy knit cap.
i've never been a fan of sock knitting, but i'd take up the dpns again to create this homage to the dorothy's ruby-slippers-with-blue-anklets look.

sue me, but i've long been an advocate of the return of eyelash. and now, i find myself advocating for the equally abhorrent "fur." but seriously, it would be perfect for this. knit up in a tawny orange and punctuated with a neutral belt, it looks fresh and modern. lang angel comes in great colors and would be a great choice.

Hi Kate,
Had no idea you were in Paris, and catching up on your blog. I can't think of a better person to be there to sponge up all the cool things. That dude's sweater is fantastic, and I agree, a furry sleeveless vest under flat knit jacket is oh so nice. Hope you are okay, and enjoying this experience. Sending my best!
