Fashion Week: Who will be wearing what?

RIP Kenzo tiger jumper. So long Brian Lichtenberg Homies orange beanie.

With the SS/14 shows swiftly approaching, those key fashion items spotted all over the streetstyle set from London to Milan last season are now, well, so last season. Here’s what we bet the fash pack will be snapped wearing this week.

Chagall leather overalls $2,700 — Acne (available at Netaporter.com)
The grown and sexed-up equivalent of denim dungarees. Miroslava Duma has already been spotted in the ox blood-colored version, so we expect her legion of style admirers to quickly follow suit. Even if it’s still hot in NY. Remember they do fashion, not practicality.

Camouflage woven-silk skirt $860 – Christopher Kane (available at Netaporter.com)
It’s the “it” print of AW13 and he’s the latest “it” designer. So prepare to see plenty of pins sporting this camo miniskirt.

Bambi sweatshirt $1,375 – Givenchy (available at luisaviaroma.com)
As we said the Tiger is dead. Long live Bambi, great prince of the forest, and now fashion.

Eye motif sweatshirt $337.54 – Kenzo (available at Brownsfashion.com)
Although this talisman print is meant to ward off evil spirts, it’s sure to only attract envious looks.

‘Cool’ pendant necklace $732 – Lanvin (available at farfetch.com)
No, the wearer is not being ironic. Their self-belief and confidence is at an all-time high. Almost as high as their bank balance, pre-splurge.

Polkadot jacquard coat $2,585 – Miu Miu (available at Netaporter.com)
It’s the only coat to be spotted in this season.

Trainers $101.26 – New Balance (available at Asos.com)
Fashion’s finest are ditching the skyscraper heels in favour of these original arch support trainers. Just remember the police force and restaurant waiters have been rocking this trend since 1906.

Cameo beanie £50 – Silver Spoon Attire
Rihanna’s a fan. #Enoughsaid

Embellished boots POA — Saint Laurent
The only biker boots to be seen in this season. We just don’t suggest going anywhere near an actual motorbike in them. Studs, pearls and hanging chains do not bode well for kickstarts.

Mirrored sunglasses $371 — Kuboraum Berlin (available at luisaviaroma.com)
Forget Anna Wintour’s signature black sunnies. You’re no one unless you’re sporting a statement mirrored pair.
