0 0 CHIC SERVICES PAVLOS SHOE REPAIRSusan Tabak home Grandmothers often have the very best tips. For example, my grandma used to say, Don't sit in the sun after 25, and she was right–the sun is terrible for your skin. (Thank goodness I followed her advice.) She also told me about the most extraordinary shoe repair service in...  

0 0 PRÊT-À-PORTER FALL 2012 AlludeSusan Tabak home Allude is a German company specializing in elegant (and quite luxurious) cashmere garments–but as its founder and creative director, Andrea Karg, explained to me, her brand isn't really about fashion. In fact, Allude has been around for almost 20 years (it was established in...  

0 0 PRÊT-À-PORTER FALL 2012 Elie SaabSusan Tabak home There are essentially two kinds of fashion designers: those who push the limits, and those who stay the course. Elie Saab is one of the latter–he's really tried-and-true. He's also one of those rare, "go-to" talents who can always be relied upon to make women look and feel...  

0 0 PRÊT-À-PORTER FALL 2012 John GallianoSusan Tabak home Susan arrives at the studio with members of her editorial team The Prêt-à-Porter is a busy time, especially for designers, so I felt lucky to schedule a studio visit with Bill Gaytten, creative director at John Galliano, for a preview of Fall 2012. His atelier is amazing–a...  

0 0 PRÊT-À-PORTER FALL 2012 LÉONARDSusan Tabak home I've passed the Léonard boutique on the rue du Faubourg Saint-Honoré countless times, and always admired the bold, Pucci-esque prints showcased in its windows. The styling was classic–perhaps overly so–but these were clothes I could make my own: easy to wear and to pack, and...  

0 0 PRÊT-À-PORTER FALL 2012 Andrew GnSusan Tabak home I met Andrew Gn several years ago and ended up visiting him in his atelier, where we had a lovely chat and walked through his most recent collection. I remember buying an unusual coat from him, made of brown velour with a rather Victorian collar–and that laced-up, almost...  

0 0 PRÊT-À-PORTER FALL 2012 Catherine Baba for GripoixSusan Tabak home I often think about interviewing Catherine Baba, a true personage on the Paris fashion scene and someone I've long admired for her extraordinary personal style. (She tends to favor turbans, combined with unusual vintage clothes and accessories, so she really stands out!)...  

0 0 PRÊT-À-PORTER FALL 2012 MANISH ARORASusan Tabak home Last season was my first time seeing the colorful work of the Indian designer Manish Arora –and that show was so much fun, and so creative, I was really looking forward to seeing his Fall collection during the Prêt-à-Porter. This time, Manish staged his défilé on the docks...  

0 0 PRÊT-À-PORTER FALL 2012 Sonia RykielSusan Tabak home I've long admired Nathalie Rykiel, the current president and artistic director of her mother's namesake company, Sonia Rykiel. I first met Nathalie when I interviewed her for my book, Chic In Paris, and I was impressed with her many great ideas. It was a real pleasure to...  

0 0 PRÊT-À-PORTER FALL 2012 LANVINSusan Tabak home Time flies, and it's hard to believe it's been ten years since Alber Elbaz began his work as artistic director for the house of Lanvin. I'm a longtime fan: I started buying Lanvin clothes and accessories at the very beginning of Alber's association with the brand, so now I...  

0 0 PRÊT-À-PORTER FALL 2012 GUY LAROCHESusan Tabak home The Guy Laroche runway before the start of the show, from the audience's point of view... I met Marcel Marongiu, the artistic director for the house of Guy Laroche, in 2009. In the nearly three years since, we've become great friends, which makes it both very easy and...  

0 0 PRÊT-À-PORTER FALL 2012 Zandra Rhodes RetrospectiveSusan Tabak home When I read that the extraordinary British designer, Zandra Rhodes, would present an archival retrospective during the Fall Prêt-à-Porter in Paris, I felt very excited. Zandra is a vibrant example of fashion history come to life: she studied textile design at The Royal...  

0 0 PRÊT-À-PORTER FALL 2012 AURELIE DEMELSusan Tabak home In the midst of the Paris Prêt-à-Porter shows, the lovely Aurelie Demel hosted a cocktail party at L'Eclaireur on rue Boissy d'Anglas, to launch an unusual collection of jackets. Aurelie's fascination with armor and the history of medieval Europe led her to collaborate with...  

0 0 Milan Fashion Week Fall 2012 Dolce & GabbanaSusan Tabak home A detail of the lavish set installed for Dolce & Gabbana's Fall 2012 runway presentation Flying from New York to Paris and then Milan, all in one day, translates into many hours spent in airplanes. But seeing Dolce & Gabbana (the only show I attend in Milan), makes it all...  

0 0 Fall 2012 Collections OSCAR DE LA RENTASusan Tabak home Oscar de la Renta will be 80 years old this July–but he's still rocking it, and reaching a younger clientele than ever, no less. This one-time assistant to the master couturier Balenciaga managed to play it both ways, upping the cool factor in his Fall 2012 collection while...  

0 0 PRÊT-À-PORTER FALL 2012 ANTHONY VACCARELLOSusan Tabak home I'm a fan of Anthony Vaccarello and his distinctive, super-skinny clothes, made for girls like Lou Doillon, Laititia Crahay and Audrey Marnay (who were all seated in the front row at his recent show). Anthony's designs look amazing on them–but they don't really work for the...

0 0 Fall 2012 Collections ANTONIO AZZUOLOSusan Tabak home After a long period of relative minimalism and conservatism, menswear has once again become a rapidly-changing (and fast-growing) part of the fashion business. In many ways, it's also become my new love: there are so many chic, new options for men these days. And while some...  

0 0 Fall 2012 Collections Moncler GrenobleSusan Tabak home New York Fashion Week doesn't usually involve a cold February evening spent in Central Park, but Moncler literally brought everyone outside for a special presentation of its Fall 2012 Grenoble collection at the beautiful Wollman Rink. Last year, Grand Central Terminal was...
