(7) If London Calls, You’ll Answer
Whether it’s Gucci’s neat white Beatles suit or something more subversive from Junya Watanabe, a decidedly British mood was in the air. Particularly groovy were Balenciaga’s skinny stovepipe trousers paired with a rock T-shirt. Vivienne Westwood evoked punk’s true spirit with knits that announced I am not a terrorist.

(8) You’ll Raid His Tie Rack
After a brief foray as a naughty pop-culture reference (banish the image of Britney Spears), the tie is back: sedate, tidy, grown-up. Whether your take is military (Vuitton, Chloé, and Lanvin), strictly academic, or more like Yves Saint Laurent’s toreador, you’ll be tying one on.
