The Fashion Week Essentials
From the flight to the front row, the fast pace of Fashion Week calls for a serious beauty kit and some super stylish flats. Discover what essentials our Head of Content and Editorial, Maria Milano totes with her to the shows.
"Much as I love a clutch, Fashion Week calls for a roomy tote to carry all the essentials: a camera, multiple phones, a Smythson notebook and a few beauty favourites. I love the Victoria Beckham Liberty tote. Origins' nude chubby is the perfect no-mess lipstick for speedy in-the-cab application while Dolce and Gabbana's eye palette takes my look from day to night. Skincare-wise I keep it simple: Creme de la Mer eye cream to protect against New York's harsh winter elements (great for post-flight de-puffing, too!) and Kiehl's ultimate strength hand salve."
And the style element? “February in New York poses the ultimate fashion challenge: how to look chic but warm? This season I'm relying on my MaxMara camel maxi-coat, a chunky rollneck from The Row, a pair of Chloe wide-leg trousers and my Valentino biker boots to mix-and-match with my wardrobe staples."
Sharing her trend prediction for the season to come, she adds: "I expect to see plenty of flat footwear, with the white leather trainer leading the way, plus a variety of wide-leg trousers and bucket bags galore."
