The Launch: September’s Hottest Fashion Drops

The Launch: September’s Hottest Fashion Drops


Summer is great and all, but it goes without saying that fall is the best season, sartorially speaking. We can all thank Meg Ryan—and Billy Crystal, for that matter—for passing down the seasonal style bible of chunky sweaters, loose trousers, and loafers. Now is the time to get comfortable, autumnal, and decidedly less sweaty. With that in mind, like every month, we rounded up the fashion news you need to know (and add to cart ASAP). From Cara Delevingne’s genderless capsule for Karl Lagerfeld to Bottega Veneta’s collab with The Strand, there’s something for everyone here.

Bottega Veneta Partners With The Strand

Who: Bottega Veneta

What: Collaboration with The Strand

Where: Available exclusively at Bottega Veneta’s Soho store and online at starting Sept. 15

Why: When you think of The Strand, you likely conjure images of endless book stacks, and, of course, the totes. A staple accessory of NYC, the tote is a tried-and-true classic, and one that Bottega Veneta creative director Matthieu Blazy is putting his spin on with three different versions rendered in the label’s luxe Italian leather. Blazy has also curated a list of his favorite books at the store, which will be available to shop until the end of the month. Consider your fall reading list handled.

What: High jewelry pop-up at Bergdorf Goodman

Where: Available at the Bergdorf Goodman Jewelry Salon

Why: Hot off the heels of opening his transportive NYC boutique (it’s over 5,000 square feet and feels more like a palace than a retail space), beloved Indian designer Sabyasachi Mukherjee is bringing his latest high jewelry collection, dubbed “Bengal. Byzantine. Broadway.” to the iconic New York retailer through Sept. 22. The maximalist designs echo the ornate saris for which the designer is well known, and aim to bring back the grand legacy of Bengal’s history of handcrafted jewelry.
