Megan Reynolds has the kind of job a 'million girls would kill for.' As the Market Director at MATCHES Fashion, she travels the world in search of the best bags, shoes, jewels, and clothes, discovering must-have new labels (and curating one of the most stylish wardrobes around). Here, she shares her thoughts on the season's brightest moments, and what to look out for this Fall.
"Having just wrapped an epic three month market, the Fall 2017 season was full of clarity. True talent shone brighter than ever and the spotlight has moved away from trends to focus on building an ideal wardrobe. A handful of my favorite collections had a thrilling sense of randomness—as if you had stumbled into the closet a woman with impeccable taste—yet still maintained the cohesion required for a single show. This idea not only diminished my appetite for frivolous fashion entirely, but has my mind racing about the idea of style. Style as a craft, and as skill to be mastered over time. If this season has given us anything, it's a slough of collectable pieces that contribute to a wardrobe of longevity and lasting style."
KOCHÉ ORNAMENT MULE
This buzzy Paris brand confidently showed their 'street meets art' ready-to-wear with a sophisticated satin mule that stole my heart.
LOEWE POLKA DOT DRESS
Jonathan's show was the perfect example of a comprehensive wardrobe—summed up in 54 looks. This finale dress will feel modern now and for years to come and is undoubtedly my favorite dress of the season.
JESSICA BIALES SIGNET RING
I have an obsession with signet rings and these solid gold beauties have the perfect balance of heritage and modernity.
THE ROW SATIN SHREDDED COMBAT BOOT
These boots made me a bit emotional, they are that beautiful. I'm not usually one for a chunky boot but this refined variation in luxurious shredded silk has been on my mind since New York fashion week.
BALENCIAGA TRENCH COAT
This was a season of amazing outerwear (it is Fall/Winter after all) but few can rival this shape shifting trophy piece. The checked skirt gracefully draped below the jacket is actually optional. It can be zipped on or off, essentially making it essentially two jackets in one.
