The Saks Insiders Take on NYFW

Our Fashion Directors Colleen Sherin and Eric Jennings show us how it’s done!

We at Saks are so excited for New York Fashion Week. See what our Fashion Directors are wearing; where they’re going and how they manage looking chic from show to show with great aplomb!

COLLEEN SHERIN, Women’s Fashion Director

Mantra for New York Fashion Week: Keep Calm and Carry On

Must-have accessories: Christian Louboutin booties, alternated with Repetto ballet flats.

Mode of transportation: Taxis and my own two feet!

Most looking forward to seeing: Marc Jacobs, Derek Lam, Proenza Schouler, Alexander Wang, Rag & Bone and Altuzarra.

Best party of the week: I suspect it may be the Proenza Schouler party after their show…

What will you wear: A Proenza Schouler dress, of course!

Must-haves for the week: My BlackBerry Bold 9780, Moleskine notebook, Uni-ball Vision Elite pen in violet, Fisherman’s Friend lozenges

Dinner reservations have been made at: Indochine.  Will also be making pit stops at The Standard hotel.

ERIC JENNINGS, Vice President & Fashion Director of Menswear, Home, Food & Gifts Men’s Fashion Director:

Mantra for New York Fashion Week: Keep it real, guys. You had your “peacock” time at the beginning of the fashion season in Italy, now it’s time for the ladies to shine!

Must-have accessories: I’ll be sporting some Gucci loafers, Church’s brogues and Del Toro slippers throughout the week.

Mode of transportation: Taxi, livery cab and hoof. Whatever it takes to get there!

Most looking forward to seeing: Michael Bastian, Rag & Bone, Y-3.

Best party of the week:  I’m more of a dinner party guy. And there is never time to change before going out, so what you see me wearing at the first show of the day is what I will be crawling home in late at night! But you’ll never see me without a jacket and pocket square.

Must-haves for the week: Oliver Peoples or Mosley Tribes sunglasses, Chapstick, Seam ripper, Tape measure, Hand sanitizer (a big must!)

Only at Fashion Week: Just this summer at the kick off of men’s fashion week in London I was able to meet Prince Charles at private reception in St James Palace Apartment. And then a few days later in Florence, while waiting outside our hotel for the annual Cucinelli dinner, Madonna drove right by in a convertible filming her new music video. (Side note: I just downloaded the video and I made the cut.) You can’t make this stuff up!
