The Best Stuff to Buy on Fashion's Night Out

On September 6, thousands of stores will stay open late and offer drinks, music and exclusive goodies to shoppers across the globe as part of Fashion's Night Out. But with so many boutiques hosting manicure stations, braid bars, designer meet-and-greets and more, it can be daunting to pick just a few to hit—after all, this is a one-night-only kinda deal.

Keeping shoppability first and foremost, we're making it easy (well, easier) for you to narrow down your options. Click through for our comprehensive guide of the absolute best FNO-exclusive goodies that'll be up for grabs next Thursday. From a cat-printed carryall to cartoon-decorated tech accessories, these buys are worth pulling an all-nighter for.


Lanvin's Cartoony Tech Extras

We're suckers for Alber Elbaz's kooky, colorful sketches—and in honor of Fashion's Night Out, the designer's slapping them onto tees, iPhone cases and iPad covers. Needless to say, we're obsessed.

Loeffler Randall's Odile Sneakers for Bird

On FNO, designer Jessie Randall will be heading to Bird in Brooklyn, where she'll unveil her label's new $195 Odile sneaker exclusively at the store. As if you needed any extra incentive to buy, 10 percent of the evening's proceeds will benefit Habitat for Humanity.

James Franco's Tees for 7 For All Mankind

As part of his ongoing collaboration with 7 For All Mankind, actor James Franco will launch his new T-shirt collection for the brand on September 6. He's already directed a few fashion films for the denim label, and the graphics for the four $89 tees on offer were actually gleaned from thousands of Polaroids taken by Franco during those campaign shoots. Each shirt is signed by the actor/director, but no word on whether he'll make an in-person appearance at any 7 For All Mankind boutiques on FNO.

Fendi's Pequin Sunglasses

Max Mara's Camel Hair Travel Kit

Priced at $995, this ultra-luxe kit, which includes a scarf, eye mask and fold-away slippers in 100% camel hair, should prove popular with the editor set. We could totally see models and writers packing these along for their flights to the European shows.

Christian Louboutin's Dragon-Tattooed Accessories

There's a $1,595 platform pump, a $1,795 iPad case—and for the dudes, a matching loafer style priced at $1,995.

Mulberry's Monster Tote

Shoppers at all Mulberry stores can snatch up these adorable free totes during Fashion's Night Out. Since the house's fall collection was inspired by Where the Wild Things Are, each bag is printed with the image of a rather cuddly-looking yeti.

3.1 Phillip Lim's Comic Book

His collections have been comic-inspired as of late, so it seems fitting that Phillip Lim recently teamed up with comic book writer John Ostrander and Star Wars illustrator Jan Duursema to create a graphic novel of his very own. You can pick up the result, entitled Kill the Night, on FNO at the designer's boutiques.

Stella McCartney's Customized Handbags

Yoko Ono's Crystal Keys for Swarovski

Swarovski commissioned the artist to create two crystal key cuts for FNO, both of which will be available at Swarovski Crystallized in NYC and online at Swarovskicrystallized.com. Designed under the theme of "Unlocking the Door to a Better Life," the pendants all carry complex names and meanings. We'd expect nothing less from the avant-garde artist.

Suno's Super-Cool Nails at Saks Fifth Avenue

We're clearly crazy about nail art, so when we heard that print-tastic label Suno had teamed up with Minx to create six sets of nail strips in honor of FNO, we kinda flipped out. Arrive at Saks early for a chance to put these patterns on your own digits.

Chloé's Alice Bag

Chloé will launch its sleek, '70s-style Alice carryall on Fashion's Night Out. It's a splurge at $1,995, but a worthy one if you ask us.

Dannijo, Timo Weiland and More Design for the WooliteWashed Boutique

Woolite—yes, the fabric wash you probably use to launder your delicates—is hosting a pop-up shop on FNO, which will be packed with specially-designed items from several labels. Interestingly, each of the special items will be washed in Woolite before hitting shelves, and 100% of the proceeds will be donated to Save the Children.
