Coachella Packing List: 8 Essentials

ALC maxi dress, LNA V-neck, Oliver Peoples sunglasses, Cleobella bag, Eugenia Kim fedora, Cali Dreaming bikini, Citizens of Humanity floral shorts, Osborn oxfords.

Coachella: three days of incredible music in the California sun. The equation to make it through the hours spent dancing in the heat? Airy fabrics, comfy shoes, and lots of sun protection. Here’s what’ll make it into my suitcase next weekend:

1. Bright Bikini: The number-one way to battle the heat is to keep the layers to a minimum.
2. Floral Cutoffs: A cooler take on the printed denim trend.
3. LNA Tee: The whisper fabric makes you feel like you’re wearing nothing at all.
4. Airy Maxi: A long hem feels so sweet in a gentle breeze.
5 & 6. Fedora & Sunnies: Sun protection at its chicest.
7. Easy Oxfords: Boots are a standard for this fest, but oxfords feel a little more fresh.
8. Earthy Messenger: A convenient carryall keeps hands free for dancing.

Scene @ Fashion Week: ELLE’s Kate Davidson Hudson

ELLE Accessories Director Kate Davidson Hudson at New York Fashion Week.

As New York Fashion Week draws to a close (and London gets started), we talked with ELLE Accessories Director Kate Davidson Hudson about the week that was and what she’s coveting this spring.

Shopbop: Describe NYFW in five words or less.
Kate Davidson Hudson: Exciting, inspiring, exhilarating, intense, compelling.

SB: The biggest misconception about Fashion Week?
KDH: It’s all glamour and no grind. In reality, it’s work and a lot of pounding the pavement.

SB: What’s your best advice for surviving fashion week?
KDH: Don’t hit every after party; sleep is key.

SB: Can you share a favorite NYFW memory?
KDH: I have many, but Alexander Wang’s supermodel finale at his show this week definitely makes the list!

SB: What fall trend was on your radar while attending the shows?
KDH: For fall my challenge is always to find the perfect coat. Right now, I’m hunting for the perfect military-inspired pea coat with fur trim.

SB: What’s the first thing you do post-NYFW?
KDH: Pack my bags. After New York I’m off to Milan and Paris. New York Fashion Week is only the beginning!

SB: And finally, let’s talk about the current season. What spring trend are you wearing to shreds?
KDH: I love the urban athleticisim that we’re seeing in so many of the spring/summer collections. It’s an idea that marries graphic designs with high utility, so the pieces feel fresh and modern, yet highly wearable.

Catching Up with Street Peeper Photographer Phil Oh

Street Peeper Founder Phil Oh

Fashion Director Kate Ciepluch put it best when talking about Phil Oh: He’s such a cool guy, and he’s everywhere. During fashion month, it would seem the man behind Street Peeper is in all places at all times, photographing cool girls in their chic clothes for Shopbop,, and his own website. (We’re convinced he doesn’t sleep.)

We caught up with Phil during a few spare minutes to talk about all things street style.

Shopbop: How did you get started in street style photography?
Phil Oh: There were two street style blogs I knew of at the time when I started Street Peeper, but I loved the Japanese magazines Street and Fruits, which documented what the kooky Tokyo fashion kids were into. I wanted to start a blog of my own about style that I found to be interesting. I didn’t have a background in fashion or photography, but sort of grew into them as the years went by. I guess it was also an excuse to travel again to places like Paris, London, Tokyo, Sydney, and more.

SB: The medium is really growing and evolving. How do you see it affecting fashion now and in the future?
PO: I think street style blogs help readers think about new ways to explore fashion. It’s inspiring to see how real people put together their looks, and I hope readers can incorporate some of those ideas into their own personal style. That said, I think street style blogs perhaps can push trends in certain directions. Design teams at all kinds of brands—from fast fashion to mass market to high fashion—use street style photos on their inspiration boards, so maybe these photos do have some effect on what happens in fashion at design and retail levels.

SB: What catches your eye when shooting street style?
PO: I love color and prints above all—when done well, of course. I feel like people are starting to open up to exploring color palettes beyond neutrals and black, and taking more chances with print and pattern. It’s exciting! Though one doesn’t have to dress like a clown or pile on the trends. Chic and simple can be just eye-catching and interesting.
