Fashion Week. The Must Have Pieces Straight from the Designers’ Mouths.

September 4, 2008 • Fashion

All next week, we’ll be bringing you our thoughts on the many collections presented in the Bryant Park tents and beyond at Fashion Week. Highlights, major pieces, colors, and our opinion of it all! But which piece do the designers themselves think is actually the most important piece of their collection? WWD found out for us. Check out the list below.


A Yigal Azrouël design sketch

Laura Poretzky for Abaeté: A Chambray Blue dress.

Akiko Ogawa: A blouson jacket and underpants (jodhpur combination) in gray, bright blue and pink. 

Alvin Valley:
There are truly two must-have Alvin Valley pants for spring — a
self-belt wide-leg pant in a cool Gray Melange and the new cargo
trouser in a Sandy Taupe.

Kimora Lee Simmons for Baby Phat: A coral silk chiffon, strapless cocktail dress. 

Brian Reyes: The ultrafeminine miniskirt —we’re showing it in a variety of shapes and fabrics.

Carmen Marc Valvo: Embellished miniskirts in neutrals. 

Charlotte Ronson: Ours is a must-have “look,” a Blush Pink corset top paired with a black stonewash biker vest and black laser-cut skirt.

Christian Francis Roth: A graffiti appliqué dress in mixed spray-paint brights of Quarry, Blue Jewel, Flame and Mimosa. 

Shaun Kearney for Cynthia Steffe: A short, pretty, fit and full layered skirt in Fire Red.

David Rodriguez: My Grass Green vinyl rain jacket. 

Douglas Hannant: Black and beige lace shirt.

Erin Fetherston: Shirred chiffon bandage dress in Electric Lime. 

James Coviello:
Full-skirted party dress with a veiled Rust overlay of organza on top
of Hot Cherry silk satin — the color appears dimensional and
atmospheric in the dress, making it perfect for any springtime party.

Lela Rose: A red plaid check-wrapped dress with embroidered woven belt. 

Wichy Hassan for Miss Sixty:
The Doris maxidress — it combines all my favorite prints of the season
into one perfectly patchworked garment in red, green, blue and natural

Nanette Lepore: Layered flouncy skirt in shades of a utopian garden. 

Nicole Romano:
A slim-fitting pencil dress with a pink, blue, red, black and white
print used along the sides to help contour and shape the body.

Pamella Devos for Pamella Roland: Our white lambskin coat with red dot organza appliqué and beading. 

Peter Som: A lacquered bouclé crop jacket in Firecracker Fuchsia.

Rebecca Taylor: A lightweight paisley printed silk dress that evokes the thoughts of walks through the lavender fields in Provence. 

Reem Acra: The Jersey Dress.

Tadashi Shoji: A white beaded and mirrored neck piece sewn on tulle with a satin tie back that will be featured in my show. 

Alice Temperley for Temperley London: The Temperley Petal Dress in violet from the new Romantic Odyssey collection.
Tia Cibani for Ports 1961:
A knit scarf in a medley of Ports 1961 spring colors.

Tracy Reese: Washed-leather appliqué mini in Cement. 

Wenland Chia for Twinkle by Wenlan: Classic shirtdress with a quirky, twist-in print.

Vivienne Tam: Tuxedo jackets and feminine day dresses in my Peony print.

We hope we’ll enjoy the pieces as much as the designers think we will! Looking for to seeing minis and bright colors mixed with interesting new neutrals.
