Where there’s a fall runway, there’s always a scarf. But this season, many labels went to extremes, showing extra-long, floor-skimming knits that harken back to that iconic photo of Lenny Kravitz walking down a New York City street wearing what was effectively a throw blanket. Dries Van Noten’s take was mustard-yellow, adorned with fringe, and Raf Simons opted for a fur-lined look.

Many of the men’s collections were sprinkled with embellished moments that kicked normcore to the curb. Clare Waight Keller, for one, said she was inspired by a recent exhibition on the lavish life of the Maharaja of Indore, a prince who embraced fantastic jewels and bespoke fashion. Her interpretation of that aesthetic was a fully beaded top at Givenchy. Others that followed suit with hints of sheen included Lanvin, Valentino, Loewe and Dior. (We’re expecting to see a few of these styles on red carpets this awards season.)
