Our study in Fall contrast continues with clean-cut prep, worn-in leather, streamlined stripes, and woodsy plaid from some of our favorite Designer Collections.

Yin and yang. Light and shade. Concrete and jungle. Life is a study in contrasts—and your Fall wardrobe should be, too.

To fully meditate on Fall’s dense tweeds, intricate knits, revved-up leather, and sturdy workwear, we took our favorite Designer Collections to Seattle’s historical, 20-acre wooded oasis, Kubota Garden—as well as the surrounding urban sprawl. The conclusion is clear: Fall’s best clothes feel calm, cool and collected, whether you’re in nature’s domain or the wilds of the city.

It’s been a quite a week—and the final day of shows didn’t disappoint. Our Fashion Director’s favorite moments, below, included Lanvin’s spaceman-chic (what David Bowie’s ‘Major Tom’ would wear on shore leave, per GQ‘s review), Paul Smith’s well-tailored rebel, and Thom Browne’s rocket from Nantucket.

Lanvin
“I love the proportions and new fabric use.”

 

Paul Smith
“A truly bold rock-and-roll statement.”

 

Thom Browne
“A spectacular show, and the clothes are amazing in color and texture. Bold move.”
