What’s hot in fashion for fall? A handful of designer items instantly come to mind. If you’re interested in investing in some of the viral and about-to-be-viral pieces of the season, this is my short list of the selects to add to your cart now before they are impossible to get your hands on.
Some of the picks, including Alaïa’s cult Mary Jane flats, are summer staples that recently came back in stock but are still in high demand. Other items, including Khaite’s Lucca belt finished with an asymmetrical metal buckle, are newer to the scene but are already selling out at record speed and primed for cool looks this fall. Others, such as the Cartier Baignoire watch, are carving themselves out to be the cult items to know for this season and many beyond. Ahead, you’ll find the best designer shopping items to invest in now for the season ahead—from shoes to bags to timepieces.
