Fashion Immitating Life

August 23, 2008

A friend of mine forwarded me this quote from Coco Chanel about fashion and style. It epitomizes the breadth of fashion -- how it can transcend past fabric draped on our bodies to a metaphor of life. The following looks are reflections of images that we see everyday -- from the sky to the street to bold statements -- and represent how fashion can transform how we think.

The Sky

Loose and light like the sky with a bit of rigidness reaching for the soft clouds.

The Street

Vibrant colors mixing around varied layers and textures with a sense of whimsy and adventure.

Donegal tweed ecole jacket, $198; watercolor floral roset tank, $98; distressed vintage slim jeans, $135 (all JCrew).

Bold Statements

Out-of-the-ordinary, intense statements that leave a lasting impression.

Extreme cut-out sandal, Dior, $780
