Fashion Week Essentials: Associate Accessories Editor William Kahn
My fashion week look is going to be heavily military-inspired with lots of officer’s jackets, chunky sweaters and skinny jeans. For accessories, a heavy boot is a must; I’ll stack a bunch of bracelets with my watch, and carry either a clutch portfolio or my camo briefcase.
This is my favorite bag from FW10, I love the classic shape with the unexpected camo print.
