Fashion week is all about finding a rhythm that works for you and sticking to it for the entire week. For example, one should usually try to sit in the same place for each show, I discovered this when my cushy front row was usurped from me last night by Tie Domi at Pink Tartan. Other things that have become routine for eurotrash: a tim’s run for an iced coffee before driving down to Allstream, my red moleskine notebook and green mechanical pencil to jot my notes, my green balenciaga giant city, 6pm coffee refill in the ML (which apparently changed it name yesterday to Press Club? ew), a daily dose of Miss SLY’s and Coco’s gossip from backstage, and last but not least, some sort of drive-thru fast food on my way home, which I eat in under 7 minutes – I can’t go ALL day on oatmeal bars and almonds.
If the rhythm is disrupted, madness ensues or at least that’s what I presume since I’ve been very careful not to break my FW habits. It seems as though the designers have also followed suit when it comes to not breaking patterns. Sure, each collection has its unique strengths and feel but overall, leave it to eurotrash to spot the common denominators; the habits of fall/winter, if you will.
I present to you,
THE EUROTRASH GUIDE TO FALL FASHION HABITS:
Just as predicted after IZMA, fur is the new fruit of the loom. From fur collars at Lundstrom, fur ties and shoes at Dimitri Chris, fur gloves at LOVAS and Tartan, fur boleros, fur shoulder pads and full fur skirts at Tartan, fur sleeve and boots at McDonagh, fur belt at Saniya Khan, and fur everything else at IZMA – if you’ve got fur you can’t go wrong.

Eurotrash will be updating you on more trends after day 5, but as a preview so far keep your eyes peeled for feathers, metallics, sequence, drapery, the tuxedo, wings, REDS and ROSES, graphics and winter whites. The parts of the body you want to highlight by dressing first and dressing best this fall: your neck and your back. And please, for heaven’s sake, do Katrina Tuttle’s collection justice and DON’T LEAVE HOME WITHOUT A COAT!
