The 17 Must-Have Items From New York Fashion Week You Can Buy Right Now

Awesome clothing, ordered right off the runway and sent straight to your closet.

With every passing fashion week, more and more designers are shifting gears and adopting a "See now, buy now" model—eliminating the traditional wait between runways shows and the arrival of clothes in stores or their availability for purchase online. This week, designers practicing the new trend include Tom Ford, Ralph Lauren, Michael Kors, and Rebecca Minkoff, who was one of the early adopters. It looks as though the future of fashion is rapidly becoming the present, and in honor of the sea change, we rounded up our favorite 17 items you can buy from New York Fashion Week right now.

Buy now: Cotton band jacket, $295; Wool slim peacoat, $495 

This season for Tommy Hilfiger's fall show, the designer transformed New York City's South Street Seaport into a carnival, which featured a see-now, buy-now collection that was a collaboration with the ultrapopular model and social media superstar, Gigi Hadid. She opened the show and walked down that runway wearing her own designs. In attendance were press, consumers, and even Taylor Swift, all of whom then had the opportunity to purchase from the entire collection immediately, in addition to enjoying rides, burgers, lobster rolls, and even a temporary tattoo station. The collection had some strong outerwear pieces, including these two pictured above.

Rebecca Minkoff is no stranger to the see-now, buy-now format, having adopted it last season. This time around, Minkoff took her collection to the streets outside her Soho store, where she showcased her Fall/Winter '16 collection alongside a special performance from the girl-duo band Beau. It's all about the shopping experience for Minkoff, who features smart touchscreen mirrors in her dressing rooms, so she also offered a 360 virtual reality view of the show for customers who couldn't attend in person. In addition, the brand offered an online experience that allows anyone to upload an image of herself, visually try on the look that just walked down the runway, and purchase it.

Club Monaco presented its Fall/Winter '16 collection at New York's Grand Central Terminal, and it was the debut for their new menswear designer, Matthew Millward. The clothing featured a return to the brand's tradition of elevated classics, rich tones, and military vibes. While the women's collection took a more Victorian approach, featuring feminine pleats and ruffles, the men's looks appeared warm, cozy, and simple. Both are available now in select stores and clubmonaco.com.

Alexander Wang's show is always a people pleaser, and this year Wang surprised attendees by announcing his latest collaboration with Adidas by sending models stomping down the runway wearing the athletic-inspired clothes during the finale. Pieces of the collection, which was Spring/Summer 2017, were then available for purchase during Alexander Wang's afterparty, which remains the hottest party of New York Fashion Week. Later, the brand announced a pop-up truck selling the clothes, which made three stops in New York, and will soon appear in London and Tokyo.
