As I pack my bag for PFW, I’m checking the weather and realizing that Paris is straddling the fence between summer and fall. Makes for challenging packing. In these situations, I think about layers and how best to put them together. A lightweight trench is the perfect outer piece and Gryphon is my go-to designer. An under shirt and t shirt can be unpeeled or added as the temperature shifts and I love wearing stripes in Paris. It’s my nod to the image I had growing up of a chic girl on her bicycle, wearing slim jeans and a striped T. When it comes to footwear, I’m officially ready for boots and my fall collection wouldn’t be complete without an OTK (over the knee). They are slenderizing and so versatile, especially if you pick an everyday heel height like the Alberto Fermani Lissandra’s. I can confirm, as I have three pairs from previous seasons, that they are comfortable worn all day long (I gave them the walking all over Paris and NYC test). These suede beauties are next on the list.
