It may be warm here in New York today, but the Fall collections are already hitting stores and cooler weather is just around the corner. Our Fall Shopping Guide should help you ready your wardrobe for the autumn months, but for some further inspiration, have a look at our editors’ Fall picks, below.

A good fashion week dress from Damir Doma and a good fashion week shoe from Saint Laurent, not necessarily to be worn together. And because I’m not quite ready to admit that the shows are five weeks away, a pair of rehabbed vintage Levi’s from the new denim brand Re/Dun to wear all August long.

I have poor blood circulation and am thus constantly freezing. I can’t wear my vintage 1920s monkey-fur coat all the time (though I’d love to), so I’m planning to rely on this cropped goat-hair jacket from Maison Martin Margiela for some deeply chic everyday insolation.

Should another Polar Vortex descend upon New York, I’ll be prepared with this oil-print anorak from Sandro. The sleek silhouette makes it easy to slip in and out of backstage, but the down filling provides plenty of warmth while I’m trekking from show to show.

The bitter Polar Vortex we New Yorkers endured this past winter shook me to the core (I’m still in a state of disbelief walking around in bare legs this summer) and already has me preparing for the cold months ahead. If there’s one trend I’m eager to get my hands on next season, it’s a statement-making shearling. I’m currently pining over Adam Lippes‘ oh-so-cuddly navy belted topper. It’s the stylish equivalent of a bear hug and will be sure to earn me compliments while keeping out the chill.

It’s time to upgrade the ponchos that are currently in my closet. In chenille, this Missoni knit basically doubles as a wearable blanket. Plus, it’s super-easy to throw on over just about anything.

Louis Wong consistently makes impeccable leather jackets under his line for A.P.C., but this season’s Ferris jacket is the first one that I must own. Colored suede was among my favorite trends from the Spring ’15 men’s shows, but I’m impatient, so waiting until next season is out of the question.

When fashion week hits, my current shoulder bag may not cut it. This stunning tote from Zana Bayne is big enough for a notebook, tape recorder, flats, and maybe even a pilfered Perrier (or two).

I’m a bit mad for cozy pastels, so this boxy Gucci peacoat is the perfect transitional piece for the cooler months—plus, it livens up my go-to uniform of skinny jeans and a white T-shirt.

I love Shrimps’ irreverent approach to faux fur—there’s nothing stuffy or upper crust about it. This camel, blush, and orange coat features all of my favorite fall colors, plus it won’t break the bank like the real thing would. I’d much rather wear a faux color-blocked version than blend into the pack of women in the same chocolate-brown mink.

Despite my Wisconsin roots, I’m a wimp when it comes to the cold. Sweaters are a key part of my daily uniform during the fall and winter months, and The Row‘s cozy cashmere version would be the perfect addition to my rotation.

Everyone knows their Marcs from their Calvins. But as fashion month rolls on, we’ll be spotlighting the up-and-coming designers and indie brands whose names you’ll want to remember.
Label: Shrimps, designed by Hannah Weiland
Need to know: Last season, designer Hannah Weiland launched Shrimps, a line of hyper-lux faux fur coats and accessories that gets its unlikely moniker from her childhood nickname. The range took off instantly, with the likes of Sienna Miller and Laura Bailey getting snapped around town in Weiland’s Breton-striped toppers.
For her sophomore outing, which debuted during London fashion week, Weiland expanded her lineup to include candy-colored clutches, mohair biker jackets, an English school-uniform scarf, and a Popeye-inspired collar. Having studied art history and textile design at the London College of Fashion, Weiland was inspired by British cartoons and childhood memories. Shrimps’ Fall ’14 pieces are lined with a flower print by Eduardo Paolozzi, which complimented the collection’s strong Pop Art and Swinging Sixties influences.
Shrimps’ faux fur is made out of mod-acrylic material that feels, behaves, and looks like the real thing, but it is really the vibrant hues that make the label stand out. Stripes and blocks of powder blue, strawberry pink, mustard yellow, deep navy, and orange make for an eccentric, not-too-serious aesthetic that is distinctly English. One of the clutches is even named Grayson, after British Turner-prize-winning and cross-dressing ceramic artist Grayson Perry. Considering Shrimps’ popularity among the fashion set, not to mention its forthcoming Spring ’14 capsule for Net-a-Porter, its future seems even brighter than its coats.
She says: “I wouldn’t wear fur and I wouldn’t work with it, and I found this great material, so I chose to do it this way. I think it is much better for everyone.”
Where to find it: Opening Ceremony and avenue32.com. Net-a-Porter will sell an exclusive Spring capsule come March, and shrimps.co.uk is set to launch soon.
