Yale Breslin, fashion writer, on Odin for the shops at Target
“Finally, something for the guys. Odin is known for its luxurious sweaters, Henleys, and accessories. They’re all about subtle details—from the buttons to the pleats to the pant lining. This collaboration caters to a guy who cares about the way he dresses but isn’t flashy about it.” Arriving Sept. 9 at Target (multiple locations; target.com).
Áslaug Magnúsdóttir, co-founder of Moda Operandi, on Narciso Rodriguez for Kohl’s
“When I think of Narciso, I think of impeccably tailored modern designs that every woman wants to wear. The DesigNation concept behind this collaboration is genius, reflecting both the designer and the city in which his inspiration was born—Istanbul. I especially love the color-block shift dress, because it could take me from day to night.” Arriving Nov. 4 at Kohl’s (multiple locations; kohls.com).
Leandra Medine, the Man Repeller Blogger, on Maison Martin Margiela for H&M
“Margiela is one of the forefathers of man-repelling. It’s not clothing for the sake of utility, functionality, or wearability; it’s clothing for the sake of art—and of turning ourselves into walking installations. I saw a sketch of a darted sweater that is probably a pretty accurate representation of what we can expect: classic silhouettes infused with Margiela’s characteristic kiss.” Arriving Nov. 15 at select stores (hm.com/us).
Michelle Violy Harper, brand consultant, on Agyness Deyn for Dr. Martens
“To take what was originally designed as an orthopedic shoe and make it fashionable is so interesting. Agyness is really talented, and this is a celebration of the fact that models aren’t just hangers. They have brains, business, and style.” Available at Dr. Martens, 148 Spring St., at Wooster St.; 212-226-8500.
