New York Fashion Week kicks off a month-long celebration of design, and innovation brews well beyond the tents. A sea of photographers, editors, buyers, and bloggers are just as interested in the caliber of creativity on the city streets as they are the catwalk.
Now is the time to cast aside your basics and opt for fashion candy—that fabulously flashy pump, fantastically floral overcoat, or statement-making shift. With a little pre-planning, or perhaps a last-minute shopping excursion, you’re sure to find a personal collection that will continue to stir your imagination well after the shows have wrapped.
Check out some of our favorite standout pieces here, and then head to Barneys to start your Fashion Week shopping.
