Fashion Week Style Diaries By James Lim
Day Seven



Quote:
Today French stylist Marie-Amélie Sauvé went for a pair of Balenciaga's high-waisted pleated pants from spring 2012, which can be a very tricky silhouette to wear — yet we'd say she pulls it off. And since it's not so cold out, she scaled back on the layers, simply adding a Prada sweater underneath a Balenciaga top. Finally, she accessorized with an Hermès Birkin bag and, as always, her family's ring.

On Marie-Amélie: Balenciaga top, pants, heels, belt, and watch, Prada sweater, Hermès bag, and her family's ring.

About the look: "I wanted to try [these] pants because I've had them in my closet. They're made out of half-jersey and half-cotton — they're very comfortable and quite warm. It's almost like I'm wearing jogging pants."
Day Eight



Quote:
Balenciaga stylist Marie-Amélie Sauvé closes her Fashion Week style diary in a casual look because she's spending the day styling a major photo shoot. Today, she wears a chunky gray sweater from Balenciaga's pre-fall 2012 collection paired with the label's leather leggings and pre-fall 2012 pumps by Alexander Wang. The bag is from Reed Krakoff's fall 2012 collection — which showed yesterday. But, as you've probably figured out by now, she's just cool like that.

On Marie-Amélie: Balenciaga sweater and leggings, Alexander Wang heels, Reed Krakoff handbag, and her family's ring.

About the look: "Today's the day I'm shooting, so I'm kind of more sportswear. I love this sweater, you know, you don't need to wear anything else; it's like a coat. I also love my bag, it's so luxurious."

Those Alexander Wang ankle booties she wore a few times this week are fantastic!
Junya Watanabe trench wins for best item though.
Enjoyed this feature. Hope we get a few good pictures of her at the European shows.

Very much agree HeatherAnne.

I really love the "day 8" look too - casual luxe. That sweater is gorgeous.

Marie-Amélie Sauvé, longtime Balenciaga stylist (and muse) and W’s new senior fashion editor, is as precise as a military sergeant when it comes to her wardrobe. Here, she shares her love of black, her favorite home store in Paris and her yearning for an Italian vacation.

Define your style in three words:
Black, sharp, fitted.

Daily uniform: I like to wear a lot of black and quite fitted clothes.

Greatest hits: Balenciaga coat, Azzedine Alaia leather skirt, Balenciaga leather pants.

Preferred footwear: Balenciaga spring/summer 2011 boots, Balenciaga spring/summer 2012 “Éclair” tall boots.

Finishing touches: Balenciaga watch.

Nighttime look: I wear the same from day to night, but I will add a fur coat for night.

Best recent discovery: Tumblr.

Favorite stores: Shoppe: Au Bain Marie, Paris.

Style pet peeve: Shiny stretch.

Style icons: I do not have any.

Last purchase: Housewares from Au Bain Marie for my apartment in Paris.

I've always thought she looked like Tina Fey in that picture with the Balenciaga bags...

Love the stripped suit formal but still pretty "cool". The pink Balenciaga skirt is beautifuk too.
