But I Want It Now: NYFW:M Stuff You Can Have Now

Fashion Week shows offer the rare opportunity to see what you and others of your well-dressed ilk will be rocking a calendar year from now. It’s like stepping into a time machine where everyone’s taking photos all the time. The king-hell bummer of it all is that you’re not wearing any of this wonderful stuff until next year. Uncool.

So we’re doing a public service today by letting you in on the best stuff you can procure right this very second from all the designers showing tomorrow. Happy acquiring.

Go Beyond the Acetate with Metal-Framed Sunglasses

  • Najib Benouar


For past couple of years, acetate-framed sunglasses have been thick on the ground. (In fact, you’re probably on your second or third pair by now.)

Thom Browne

Last night, New York’s fashion elite flooded Lincoln Center in droves. Miles of silken-draped legs, notched lapels and graciously plunging necklines, all there to celebrate the next evolution of style and suiting at the 32nd installment of the CFDA Awards.

Top honors went to menswear elite Steven Cox and Daniel Silver of Duckie Brown, Michael Bastian and our Man of the Hour, Thom Browne, taking home the title of CFDA’s Menswear Designer of the Year.

He swept the stage, accepting the award kitted out in the very same cropped-suit silhouette for which he is known.

Flashing a little leg will apparently get you everywhere.
