Now that Paris Fashion Week has teased us with feminine pastels, patterns and wispy cuts (with even traditionally dramatic houses like McQueen and Lanvin dabbling in dreamy palettes), it’s time to gear up for October and the oncoming cold. Since we can’t allow Kanye West’s unexpectedly disappointing collection to make our autumn even chillier (shudder), let’s celebrate sweater season and Kenyon’s most beautiful season.
1) I caught Kelsey walking by the post office and couldn’t help but call out to her – the movement of this skirt is lovely! Long skirts are difficult to wear without looking like you’re drowning, but Kelsey achieves airy and goddess-like from loose-fitting neutrals. Gentle, natural hair ensure an easy Indian summer look.
Iced coffee. Mmm…
2) Our wonderful assistant Leslie Lasiter snapped this one of Cat outside of Peirce. We love the soft shape of her sweater with her long rustic skirt. The colors of Cat’s look complement the turning of the leaves, neutrals and earth tones balanced perfectly.
She matches trees!
3) Paul might have the best sock collection at Kenyon. If you contest this, please G-Chat me and we can set up a time to consult. Paul is always bold and experimental, mixing loud colors and patterns against bold solids. Ivy League with a twist, this Classics major has a knack for creative reinvention.
That pumpkin’s jealous.
And with that, I leave you with a standout Rick Owens spring 2012 piece that I’m almost certain Kanye wishes he had designed himself. But more on that later…
