Carven
Guillaume Henry's updated skirt suit, done in shimmering, shining bottle green, was just gorgeous. We'd wear the pieces both together and separately—and often, obviously.
The Row
Mary-Kate and Ashley's camel coat is the best take on the classic we've seen all season, and the off-kilter proportions of that cross-body bag (spacious but short-strapped) keep the look youthful.
Reed Krakoff
Krakoff usually works in a primarily subdued color palette—think shades of white, black, grey and beige—but this head-to-toe yellow look proved he's just as adept with bold color. It'd be impossible to frown while wearing that dress.
Rag & Bone
Marcus Wainwright and David Neville didn't take their collection's retro aviation inspiration too seriously—and it worked. This combo, a silky bomber jacket paired with slouchy skinny pants, borrows from Pan Am's familiar palette of orange and blue without looking stuffy, starched or overly stewardess-y.
Proenza Schouler
We can't decide which we covet more: Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez's vibrant ocean-print wrap coat, or the exotic Fiji vacation that apparently inspired it.
3.1 Phillip Lim
Lim managed to make the leather pant—we've seen endless pairs on recent runways—feel fresh again with moto-style paneling, and stitched tattoo-like phoenix wings onto slouchy varsity jackets. It's time to get tough.
Jenni Kayne
Doesn't this sharp cobalt vest dress look like the world's chicest flight attendant uniform? Well, it should, considering that its creator drew inspiration from Sue Ellen Crandell, the precocious designer/businesswoman played by Christina Applegate in the '90s classic Don't Tell Mom the Babysitter's Dead. We always knew we loved you, Jenni.
Jason Wu
Wu's ode to the '70s glam era offered up this striking, squiggly-striped sheer skirt, among other standouts. Styled with one of the designer's signature knits and a Studio 54-esque curb chain collar, it looked both provocative and polished.
10 Crosby Derek Lam
We love the contrast between the literal leopard spots on the clutch and the abstract ones covering that slouchy sweater. In other news, the choker comeback marches bravely on...
Burberry Prorsum
Christopher Bailey struck gold with his shearling-dominated Fall 2010 collection, and it's smart of him to continue reissuing new versions of those cozy lamb-lined jackets. This cropped one looks awesome over that patterned knit.
