The runways got wild this season, with designers using everything from jungle cats to German shepherds as inspiration for graphic, in-your-face prints. Cozy up with some of these creature comforts—in the form of intarsia sweaters, needlepoint slippers, and sweet stud earrings.

A top model’s daily Fashion Week schedule typically begins predawn, with back-to-back castings, fittings, and shows booked in 20-minute increments and lasting into the wee hours. It’s a mad dash between gigs, with little room for errors such as transportation snafus (a challenge this week, with heavy traffic due to stepped-up 9/11 security), but once at a show, the sitting around for hair and makeup makes a good read, be it on iPad or in paperback, de rigueur.

Rachel Roy’s Spring collection, titled “Romantic Minimalism,” put a pan-Asian spin on masculine/feminine dressing. Working in a mostly black-and-white palette, Roy cut jackets and wide-leg trousers from Chinoiserie silk jacquards, and belted draped blouses at the waist, Kimono-style. Structured fabrics were perfect for high-necked dresses reminiscent of the Vietnamese áo dài, as well as classic Mandarin pajama pants. It all made for a chic imaginary trip East. (Photos: Via Vogue.co.uk)
