Every time Fashion Week rolls around, we look to our longtime favorite designers and the up-and-coming stars to help us determine what next season’s trends will be. While we frequently notice definite patterns happening throughout designers’ collections—like these seven major trends—there are always a few oddball pieces thrown into the mix. A penguin purse? A nose cuff? Hmm.
From out-there statement earrings that we’d totally wear to Thom Browne always leaving us scratching our heads in the best way possible, we rounded up 12 of the quirkiest things to hit the NYFW runways last week. If you consider yourself a fashion risk-taker, consider this your guide to life next fall.
With all this weirdness that happened in NYC, we’re anticipating even more from London, Milan, and Paris in the coming weeks. Stay tuned.
