Tommy Hilfiger Fall/Winter 2016
All aboard the S.S. contrarian! Tommy Hilfiger went nautical for fall, turning the Park Avenue Armory into a ship-shape spectacular and injecting some feel-good fashion into a season of ultra-serious clothes. Stripes, an anchor-tastic print, sparkly collars, and the occasional tiara made for a winning formula. Of the many riffs on the sailor suit, the
Carolina Herrera Fall/Winter 2016
The Frick Collection was the ideal setting for Carolina Herrera’s richly-textured take on Fall. (Austerity is not Herrera’s thing, thank heavens.)

Edun Fall/Winter 2016
Danielle Sherman’s designs for Edun took a fresh, feminine take this season, perhaps partly due to the newness that comes with motherhood (she showed off her 7-week-old daughter on the runway after presenting her fall ’16 collection).

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.
