Somewhere Nancy Cunard, the rebellious Jazz Age heiress famous for wearing armfuls of African bracelets, is smiling. “Bangles are making a comeback,” stylist Edward Enninful, who used them at Alessandro Dell’Acqua’s Spring show for Malo, told us. “The clothes were so urban, clean, and refined, we decided to pile bracelets on to give the collection a tribal edge.” Wilder still were the ornate leopard versions at Louis Vuitton, while pieced glass numbers added Arabian Nights sparkle to the Moorish lineup at 3.1 Phillip Lim.

You can sing about autumn in New York and you can shop for it, but with temps topping 80 in Manhattan these days, it’s going to be difficult to work Fall’s heritage tweeds and midi lengths in Bryant Park. (We’re actually hoping the tents have AC—and plenty of it.)
