2. Meet Christopher John Rogers
It's time to commit this name to memory. The buzzy young designer already has fans in Rihanna and Jameela Jamil, and his autumn 2020 collection—a rainbow's worth of pearlescent looks—is guaranteed to win him a new wave of celebrity devotees. "Expect to see these vibrant designs on the red carpet very soon," says InStyle fashion news editor Natalie Mell.
3. Debbie Harry Rocks Coach
Under the guidance of creative director Stuart Vevers, Coach 1941 never fails to impress with its references. 1980s New York played muse to the autumn 2020 collection, which even included a collaboration with the estate of celebrated artist Jean-Michel Basquiat. And let's not forget that Debbie Harry closed the show with a strut and a song—how cool is that?! "Watching this show unfold (albeit from the other side of the world) was easily the highlight of my Wednesday," says Mell.
4. Valentine's Day Came Early At Rodarte
Who needs roses when you've got Rodarte? After decamping to Los Angeles last season, the label was back on the New York Fashion Week schedule with a collection—and set—that brimmed with its signature whimsy.
"Puff sleeves, ruffles and polka dots paired with lace gloves and jewel-encrusted heels; there wasn’t one thing I didn’t love about this incredible collection," says InStyle fashion editor Lucy Wood. "With all the classic tailoring and utilitarian fashion flooding our newsfeeds, Rodarte remind us of the magic of romanticism."
5. Marc Jacobs Enlists Miley Cyrus
We're used to seeing mega-models Bella and Gigi Hadid walk in the biggest shows of the season, but after making a surprise appearance at Marc Jacobs, musician Miley Cyrus proved that she can hold own on the runway, too. Go girl!
On the collection itself, Wood says: “Marc Jacobs is the show I look forward to most at New York Fashion Week and his autumn 2020 collection didn’t disappoint. I loved the head-to-toe sorbet looks, array of pea coats, classic cardigans and Mary-Jane pumps. A beautifully wearable collection with that classic Jacobs twist.”
