Even the worst weather couldn’t stop New York Fashion Week’s momentum today. The day began at Tory Burch, where the designer mined her own youth as an equestrian for inspiration. Then we settled into our seats at Rodarte, where Kate and Laura Mulleavy celebrated their 10th birthday with a collection that harkened back to the gothic glamour of Rodarte collections past, before scooting across the West Side Highway to Coach 1941 for a solid dose of Americana. After stops at A.P.C. and Gyspy Sport, the day closed with shows from Oscar de la Renta and Narcisco Rodriguez. Here, the highlights.
Horsing Around With Tory Burch
Tory Burch’s clean lines and quirky ’70s colors are the very antithesis of current fashion’s obsession with the ironically casual—and that’s exactly what will make her Fall 2016 collection of equestrian-inspired pieces a hit with shoppers.
Rodarte’s Daydream Nation
Kate and Laura Mulleavy marked Rodarte’s 10th anniversary with a collection that went back to the core of their initial Rodarte vision: fantasy. Tons of references pooled together into a lineup that included goat furs, ruffled leathers, real flower jewelry, and crystal-embellished lace. It shouldn’t make sense, but under their artful vision it somehow does.

Don’t Call It Athleisure
A.P.C. decamped to New York this season, bringing with it a collaboration with American brand Outdoor Voices. The line of activewear marries Jean Touitou’s studied nonchalance with leggings—does it get any better than that?
Where the Ladies At?
They’re at Oscar de la Renta, of course. Marrying American sportswear with 18th-century French fabrics, Peter Copping sent out modern suiting and sexy cocktail dresses, and finished things off with some gorgeous gowns.

Gypsy Sport might be known for its gender-bending streetwear, but this season it added a new category to its repertoire: infant clothing. The last model out at Rio Uribe’s show came carrying a small baby swaddled in a Gypsy Sport blanket.
Hair Flips and All
Kooky poses, celebrity sightings, and dramatic hair flips are just a sampling of the things you’ll find backstage at a fashion show. Luckily, Vogue.com photographer Kevin Tachman is there to capture these moments and more.
In the Gym With Coach 1941
Stuart Vevers deepened his exploration of all things Americana at Coach 1941. Among the items in his Fall 2016 collection were varsity jackets, A-line minis, and cowboy-esque harness boots with a little extra kick in the form of a Louis XIV heel.
It’s Okay to Be Biased
Especially if you’re biased for Narciso Rodriguez. The designer focused in on diagonal paneling for his Fall 2016 collection—a decision that produced body-conscious silk dresses, lean tunics worn over trousers, and a fluid slip dress that front row star Claire Danes really seemed to love.
Model-off-duty style is a hotbed of trends just waiting to come to the fore. The latest thing the models are into? Furs, shearlings, and fuzzy outerwear—and we have the photos by Phil Oh to prove it.
