Grand master of high fashion Karl Lagerfeld presented a collection of what Vogue called “techno rococo confections” for spring ’17. The skillfully executed mashup of eras and tastes included gilded aprons over pants and boudoir-inspired lingerie pieces amid exaggerated sleeves and high-contrast pinstripes. And, of course, decked-out Fendi handbags.

Beautifully offbeat, expertly crafted pieces are something of a signature for Fendi—a well-known fact for anyone who owns a handbag (or three) from the iconic Italian house.

Which is why just days before the Milan Fashion Week runway show, we celebrated the launch of the newest Peekaboo bag—her name is Selleria–at our downtown Seattle flagship store. Fendi lovers sipped on bubbly and perused the boutique as they witnessed the magic of Italian artisan Dimitri Ciandella.

We’ve been talking to some of our favorite writers, editors, photographers and fashion authorities about how they prepare for and survive the bustle of the streets, parties and runways during Fashion Week.

We rely heavily on global trend reporter Kristin Yamada‘s keen eye to capture the coolest looks on the Fashion Week street scene. Her photographs form the core of our seasonal fashion predictions and some of our best shopping inspo. So we couldn’t help but ask her what she’s packing for her four-city fashion tour.

What item of clothing can you not wait to bust out during Fashion Week? 

A gorgeous silk pantsuit scored in Italy a few years ago. I love it so much! Its rich, allover pattern feels particularly right at the moment. I’ll probably rock it the first day in Milan, channeling my inner Gucci girl.

New Public School shorts and a plissé slipdress also have me excited. When packing for 27 days on the road, versatility is key. Both of these pieces will be comfy in the street and can easily be dressed up for evenings on the town.

A few weeks ago the fashion press reported that Miuccia Prada and Silver Linings Playbook director David O. Russell would collaborate on a short film to be presented during Milan Fashion Week at Prada‘s spring runway event.

Our Designer Collections buyers are great resources when it comes to predicting what celebrities will wear to awards shows, where to grab a coffee in any international city, what to pick up at our Anniversary Sale and, of course, what you’ll see in stores after you’ve seen it on the runway.

Turns out our buyers are also excellent advisors when it comes to travel packing. We spoke with buyer Jennifer DeLuca just before she left for Milan Fashion Week about some of the things she’s bringing to Italy and why.

Milan Fashion Week Street Style

Milan Fashion Week Spring 2017 is upon us, and we can’t wait to see the street style in the Italian fashion hub. Here are some of our favorite (shoppable!) looks from MFW so far—captured by our gimlet-eyed street-style reporter Kristin Yamada—that we plan on emulating posthaste.

SEE (AND SHOP) THE LOOKS

Is this why they call it a capsule collection? Stay tuned to find out. Your seasonal dose (final pun, we swear) of Jeremy Scott style—hot-off-the-runway pieces you can buy just days after his Milan Fashion Week show—is about to take effect.

Moschino spring '17 capsule collection.

Be sure to check back first thing Sunday morning to find out how to get your hands on the limited-edition goods. If history proves anything, it’s that these collections sell out fast—and early birds get the fashion.

Watch the Moschino Spring 2017 fashion show below to get a peek at what they’re pushing this season.

You can always count on Caroline Issa to be one of the most classically chic women on the street and in the front row, and you can always count on her for a precise yet spirited runway recap.

So that’s exactly what we did: we counted on her. Our ace street-style shooter, Kristin Yamada, caught her at the show—wearing the Nordstrom Signature pintuck floral-print dress she helped design—and then we got her download on what was inside.

In the meantime, let’s look at what men wore to LFW. We did the same thing last week, looking at what men wore to New York Fashion Week.

In the slideshow below: jackets, backpacks, jackets which are also backpacks–and drastically different interpretations of American varsity style in the UK.
