Saturday is sort of PFW's version of hump day. Luckily, there was good fashion to get us through. My top five looks from the day (from left to right):

1. Neil Barrett's lightning bolts. I remember when Neil Barrett first came up in the early 2000s -- he had such momentum as a menswear designer. The London-based Barrett launched women's in 2006, but it wasn't until Net-a-Porter picked him up a few seasons ago that it really began to gain traction editorially. Barrett's boyish shapes are so right for right now, and I loved fall's snazzy lightning bolt motif.

2. Acne's fuzzy anorak. SO normcore. But high-fashion normcore. So I guess it's not normcore? Anyway, it looks cozy.

3. Viktor & Rolf's spin on the grey sweater. The designers' starting point was a v-neck melange knit sweater. They transformed that simple style into dynamic dresses.

4. Comme des Garçons' sweater pile. Commentary on over-consumption, perhaps?

5. Maiyet's Tetris print. The strongest element of the show. (Was also nice to see Jamie Bochert walking yet again -- she's really doing the rounds this PFW.)
