The show outside of the shows is here to stay and one thing that has become evidently clear from the street style parade is that more is more. Whether wearing baroque embellishment, layers upon layers of jewelry, or mixing and matching prints from head to toe, established experts like Caroline Issa, and Tamu McPherson continued to display the best trends of the year, while fresh faces such as Anne-Catherine Frey added an eclectic touch and created looks that were anything but predictable. Also unpredictable? Balenciaga’s space invaders sweatshirts tremendous popularity among the crowds, the reinvention of needlepoint from fusty hobby into covetable pattern, and that required finishing touch of any look: a sharply tailored blazer or coat, not worn on top, but casually thrown over the shoulders. 12-19-2012 11-36-16 AM Dries Van Noten pants (left), Céline pants and Alexander Wang heels (right)
