Moschino

Moschino did its best not to turn Scotland the Brave into Scotland the Bore. It is difficult when the Highlands have been mined so often for inspiration to get anything new out of plaid. But with taut jackets, perky pleated skirts and jaunty military helmets, the collection seemed upbeat and fun. Adding an embroidery of a heart to the kilts, just where a sporran might have swung, gave a touch of naughtiness.

There were some intriguing moments when it looked as though the short hemlines might be challenged by long, slim dresses, as the neck-to-toe, covered-up look is lurking around as a fashion trend. At one moment, short and long outfits, inevitably in plaid, appeared side by side on the runway. But the story was really in tailoring: sleek, concise and saleable.

A show that has every outfit with the same footwear — a narrow-heel court shoe — seems in need of some current fashion education. But if Sportmax ignored the hot accessory of the moment, it had latched on to an important story of the season: texture.

From the opening impression of a fur-fronted coat, its surface brushed into squares, there were all manner of surface effects — from fluffed-up sweaters, through a tactile ginger shearling jacket zipped up the back, to a dress that seemed to be covered with blue and white filaments.

Sportmax also made the most of another trend of the season: a carwash-panel skirt. Tailored pleats, either left open or as the back panel in semi-sheer chiffon, are one of those looks that appear to be an instant hit.

First business

Wearing the right dress can be the first business flirtation between an actress and designer, too. A bit like a wink across the room. In 2011, 14-year-old Hailee Steinfeld was nominated for an Oscar for True Grit. Seizing a style moment, she wore a striking fuchsia-, tangerine-, and black-striped Prada dress with a flounced hem from the spring collection to the SAG Awards that year. The chic choice paid off. Within two months, Steinfeld became the new face of Miu Miu, Prada’s edgier little-sister label. Steinfeld was just spotted front row at the Chanel couture show in Paris, so stay tuned.

Jewelers, of course, must deliver never-before-seen sparklers too. Many stylists plunder the archives of a house like Cartier or Van Cleef & Arpels for statement pieces with heritage and vintage caché. “Finding the new unseen look and style in a piece of jewelry is also in top demand”, says Beverly Hills jeweler Martin Katz, who outfitted Jodie Foster, Sally Field, and Helen Hunt with lush diamond bracelets and bold earrings at this year’s Globes. “When I come up with unusual rings or bracelets that have not been seen on the red carpet before, stylists grab them immediately”.

Editor

Liz Bacelar, a former television producer and tech enthusiast, created Decoded Fashion in 2011, and since then has hosted panel discussions and other forums bringing together fashion and retail, technology and media. Stephanie Winston Wolkoff, a former Vogue editor and the founding fashion director of Lincoln Center, is co-executive producer of the organization.

“Decoded Fashion has done a fantastic job of putting all these great fashion digital minds in one room, and making brands feel less anxious and more excited about this fast-moving revolution,” said Mr. Uhovski, Tumblr’s so-called fashion evangelist. “It’s still Wild Wild West out there in terms of produced content, but I’m very proud of all the amazing original posts that most Tumblr brands have put out during Fashion Week. That kind of output really lasts beyond the length of a fashion show.”

Most interesting

The most interesting look in the Fendi show on Thursday was a minimalist black wool coat with a left-side panel of black shaved mink and a thin belt that half-closed the garment. The fur supplied a subdued decorative touch, the two-sidedness played a trick on your eye and the coat’s shape looked modern and easy to wear.

Mr. Lagerfeld had other two-sided pieces in this vividly colored, engaging collection, as well as dresses and coats partly overlaid with shaved fur that was cut on the round and given a neon band of color. “Fashion is almost always about illusion,” he said. There were pieces that combined leather and feathery bits in a block pattern. Or were those compacted frills actually fur? Hard to say.

“You can’t tell what the fur is today,” he said. Nor could you be really sure if some of the trousers and tops were infused with a sports influence. Waistbands were finished with what looked like striped fur. Those bright pinks and blues certainly could be found on any mall rat. Silvia Fendi brought a similar, multihued madness to accessories, including fur-blocked pumps.

But maybe the most magical thing is how Mr. Lagerfeld, in spite of the noise, managed to keep on a high level of design.

Erin Andrews

Erin Andrews dating Tony Romo’s brother-in-law, Chace Crawford.

ESPN reporter Erin Andrews is dating “Gossip Girl” actor Chace Crawford, US Weekly is reporting.
Andrews and Crawford are “getting to know each other,” according to the report. Chace Crawford is the brother of Candice Crawford, who married Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo in 2011.
That should make sideline interviews on the Dallas Cowboys side of the field interesting for Andrews.
Now some may be wondering, “What is this doing on a sports blog?” Good question, but, aside from the fact Crawford is Romo’s brother-in-law, there is an even better sports tie-in.
Chace Crawford’s character name on “Gossip Girl” is Nate Archibald. Which is also the name of a Hall of Fame NBA player.
Erin Andrews is dating Tiny Archibald? Who would have guessed?
