Public School Fall/Winter 2016
Public School’s Fall/Winter 2016 collection was an exercise in layering—something New Yorker’s should be taking notes on now that the weather is dropping to single digits. There were long zip-up jersey sportswear dresses, roomy ribbed pullovers on top of a dress worn over a jacket, sweatshirts over sweatshirts, and blanket capes. The urban mood is having a real moment.
Baja East Fall/Winter 2016
There is more than a touch of l’esprit Belge running through the hearts and minds of New York’s emerging designers. Baja East has moved beyond the cashmere ponchos and unisexy knits to separates and eveningwear with panache. A hummingbird print dressed up pajama-esque suiting and a shoulder-baring dress, while a velvet froor-grazer lent a louche

Altuzarra Fall/Winter 2016
Altuzarra’s show stirred up palpable excitement in the crowd this season.

Moncler Grenoble Fall/Winter 2016
If the strategy was to freeze guests into buying a Moncler puffer jacket by forcing them to stand outside in 8-degree weather to watch an interminably long marching parade, then Moncler succeeded. Even taking a picture for social media felt like a challenge, when forced to remove a treasured glove to tap our iPhone screen. While the show would have been inspiring in any
Tibi Fall/Winter 2016
Military and menswear inspirations were the theme behind Tibi this season, and yes, there were men on the runway! But designer Amy Smilovic says it’s not a foray into menswear. “We have 15 guys in our office and it felt extremely right, and it’s all just about ease and comfort and wearing what you love,
Hervé Léger by Max Azria Fall/Winter 2016
Hervé Léger by Max Azria stayed true to tradition with its offering of body-hugging silhouettes and cutout dresses and separates for Fall ’16, but the label took a slightly new direction and sent a few outerwear options down the runway. Fur, naturally, made a strong appearance, but we are especially lusting after the lambswool overcoat. Patterns like plaid and ribboned stripes,
Adam Lippes Fall/Winter 2016
Adam Lippes transported us straight into his own home this season. The designer’s stunning apartment served as the perfect backdrop for his equally well-conceived collection. Going one step further, Lippes collaborated with artist Yelena Yemchuk on a series of moving vignettes to capture the clothing in action. “People are looking at the collection on phones and websites
