Milan: Jo No Fui’s F/W 13 collection has many of the hallmarks of Italian luxury: Sumptuous calfskin and furs, earthy shades of camel and chocolate and cozy cashmere. But the clothes themselves—patchwork leather separates, clean satin cocoon dresses, and deconstructed biker jackets—are more in step with a downtown New Yorker or a Left Bank Parisienne and put the label in the same hemisphere as Acne or 3.1 Philip Lim. Architect-turned-fashion-designer Alessia Giacobino established her label more than a decade ago and opened an Italian flagship in 2010, but it’s this collection that will likely get her noticed from Brooklyn to Berlin. — Natalie Shukur
