During some of the city's coldest, snowiest, and rainiest days, celebs and influencers have trekked through the streets in their most fashionable outfits, no matter how unfit they were for the temperature.
If you can't wait until fall to try out the trends — from animal prints to safety orange to pantsuits to rainbow hosiery — you can shop them now.

On Saturday night, German designer Philipp Plein staged a spectacular outer-space theme for New York Fashion Week , with the look of a Hollywood film. He transformed an enormous industrial warehouse-like space in the Duggal Greenhouse in Brooklyn into another planet — one containing a nearly 60-foot life-size “spaceship,” artificial snow on the floor, and a grand “Philipp Plein” neon sign hanging above a textured rocky cave that appeared to be made of gold and silver foil. At the start of the show, two snow plowers decked out in “PP” (the second P was backward) white “spacesuits” slammed right through the golden, rocky cave wall and sped around the center of the crowd. “Snow” made of small foam bubbles began to descend from the ceiling falling atop guests’ hair, faces, and clothes (although it was a bit too soapy for comfort). Offset from the Migos rap trio came out of the cave and performed. The rapper Rich the Kid joined in soon after. But the show wasn’t over yet. After the artists went back into the cave, a human-sized Transformers robot began to walk into the crowd. Then, the “spaceship” began to blare ominous sounds, and lights circled around it, flashing continuously. Smoke appeared, and the “ship” descended down onto the floor, like something in a Hollywood blockbuster. Out of the ship’s smoke and lights appeared supermodel Irina Shayk wearing a tight black leather catsuit that said “I love you Philipp Plein” across her torso. She took the robot’s hand, and the two began to walk around the room to the sounds of a love song. Only after this spectacle did the “fashion show” officially start. Among the models were Sean Combs’s son Christian Combs as well as Snoop Dogg ’s son Cordell Broadus (now a two-time model for Plein). Model Kate Upton was not on the runway but attended as part of the celebrity front row. The clothes themselves were a mix of punk rock and a ski-and-snow winter collection. Male models wore silvery metallic puffer coats and pants. The women wore colorful, tie-dyed fur coats as well as sequined track suits, furry boots, and other winter apparel. Plein had also infused a few of his runway looks with the Playboy brand. Nearly all the black puffer jackets, silver foil coats, snow goggles, and snowboards were branded with “Philipp Plein.” If you thought logomania was over, think again. There was one pair of sparkling silver boots that had a clear resemblance to Saint Laurent’s $10,000 crystal boots from the Spring 2018 season — but they had “Plein” splashed across them. Of course, leave it to Plein to exceed his own past record of over-the-top NYFW shows , which included Dita Von Teese doing a striptease and performances by Nicki Minaj and Future. This was definitely the most grandiose show I had ever seen.
