Unpack Dion Lee’s FW17 suitcase and you’ll find outfit trappings for a full day of being alive: smart blazers for your 9-5, slinky mid-length slip dresses for dinner-hour shenanigans, velvet track pants and hoodies for so-good-to-be-home couch sitting and a bright orange shag coat for when you need to go to CVS to buy toothpaste. — Harling Ross

Jonathan Simkhai

Among a host of retro references, Jonathan Simkhai had one timeless thing to say: women are powerful. The collars were high and aristocratic, like feminine armor but not stuffy, and the romantic silhouettes (corseted waists! strong shoulders! ruffly blouses!) harked back centuries, while studded leather, sharp tailoring and oversized denim brought it back to present day. — Haley Nahman
