What Kathy Hilton Learned About Style From Paris and Nicky

Kathy remembers her daughters’ early love for fashion fondly. “I used to bring them to the fashion shows in Paris when they were, like, 13 and 15,” she says. “I think that’s where they really got a taste and started to see all these beautiful things. And then the designers started to send them things. We had a huge entryway filled with racks of clothes.” Paris, in particular, had an experimental flair. “Paris could go to Patricia Field, find a pair of pants or a skirt, and then she would pair it with one of my good jackets,” Kathy says. “She was quite the character in the day.” 

While they all have their own tastes, borrowing from each other’s closets is all but a family tradition. “They make themselves very at home in the closet,” says Kathy, adding that her handbags and jewelry are a particular hit with her daughters.

While the Covid-19 pandemic has played havoc with the way we dress in 2020, it’s far from being the only influence on wardrobes this year. British singer Harry Styles, French fashion designer Marine Serre and the Netflix show Emily in Paris also inspired people’s shopping habits, according to the Year in Fashion 2020 report from the global fashion search platform, Lyst.

So 2020 is and always will be a peculiar kind of year, marked by the Covid-19 pandemic, mass lockdowns around the world, and profound changes in the way we do things like shop and work.

It’s also been a year of activism, with movements like Black Lives Matter that have influenced various domains such as culture and fashion.

As the end of the year approaches, it’s time to take stock, and it’s no surprise to see that our wardrobes have been inspired by the

How to nail modern French girl style better than Emily in Paris

There’s certainly a sense of irony in putting together a guide to French girl style. The Parisian brand of effortless chic is intrinsic, not studied or copied. French girls form a personal relationship with their clothes, one outside of the world of trends and must-haves as dictated by fashion brands. And they live in their clothes, not simply wear them; it’s easy to do so when your wardrobe is full of timeless pieces. Through years of thoughtfully dressing up, French girls just know what makes them look good. Their style rules (and they do have them, despite the shrug of insouciance they may offer) are deceptively simple: go for a look that’s laid-back but never lazy, clothes that are special but never showy. It’s all in the fit, fabric and fine details, after all. As a new exhibition reveals, the spirit of French couturier Coco Chanel

The Fashion Of Sex And The City Meets Gossip Girl In Emily In Paris

If Sex and the City were filmed today, its fashion would look a lot like that of Emily in Paris. It might be an easy comparison to make, given that both the creator, Darren Star, and the costume designer, the legendary Patricia Field, are behind Netflix’s newest show, but its nods to the late ‘90s/early ‘00s HBO show are subtle enough to entice fashion-loving viewers who’ve never seen an episode, and absolutely delight those who watched every single one (many times over).

Emily in Paris follows 20-something Emily (played by the newly engaged Lily Collins), a Chicago marketing executive who gets sent to Paris for a year when her company acquires a French luxury marketing company that needs (but doesn’t want) help with their social media strategy. From the start, there is no doubt that Emily, much like Collins in real-life, watched Sex and the City as a
