Fall fashion 2007, fashion trends

Who: Chris Benz, up-and-coming heartthrobby womenswear designer
What/why: “I love the natty, American spirit of mixing more formal pieces into everyday wear, like a tuxedo vest from Tom Ford over a tattered T-shirt and jeans. Throw on a pair of well-worn penny loafers and it’s like a classic look, and superchic.”

Who: Kyung Lee, owner of boutiques Albertine, Leontine and Claudine
What/why:“This is Gary Graham’s first season doing accessories, and I love them! This bag, inspired by a Victorian doctor satchel, is the perfect size to carry everything, it’s light, and it’ll get even better once the leather ages.”

Who: Terri Gillis, founder of TG-170, the first boutique to grace the LES
What/why: “I was wearing color all summer, and now I’m sick of it. I wanna wear all black and big gold chains and channel Run D.M.C. with sunglasses like the Gazelle pair by Claw Money.”

Fall fashion 2007, fashion trends

Who: Lisa Schulner, visual manager of Madewell, J. Crew’s sister company
What/why: “One, a big—and I mean big—beret. Even bigger than the Marc Jacobs one I splurged on last fall. Two, a gazillion colorful leotards and assorted skivvies to wear under sheer dresses, overalls, and full and flouncy skirts. Three, I need those red Chloé worker boots. Need. Four, a vintage oversize red and black buffalo-plaid jacket. I’m practicing self-realization. In my mind’s eye, I see a Comme Des Garçons look-alike hanging alone in a dark corner of a shop upstate. No—make that Flatbush.”

Fall fashion 2007, fashion trends

Who: Tim Gunn, chief creative officer, Liz Claiborne; host of Bravo’s Tim Gunn’s Guide to Style
What/why: “I’m debating between a velvet dinner jacket (that I’d dress down with jeans) and a cashmere peacoat. How’s that for sartorial ambivalence?”
