Layering is a staple for cold fall/winter climates. With warmth a priority, designers only have so many options to show customers how to bundle up in as chic a manner as possible. So, how about doubling up on coats? That appears to be the message this fall, with collections from Altuzarra, DKNY and The Row pairing short coats over long coats.

New York is unreasonably cold right now. Like impending-blizzard-freeze-your-Rag & Bone-covered-butt-off cold. This is exactly why we, and fashionistas nowhere near New York, are praising the fashion gods (more like IMG & various PR people) for the glorious amount of New York fashion week shows livestreaming this week. We wrangled 89 shows (89!) and presentations to tune into over the course of the next week...with even more coming in! The best part?

ICB, which stands for International Concept Brand, is owned by established Japanese manufacturing company Onward Kashiyama, which also owns Jil Sander, J Press and others. They also have distribution and licensing agreements with Donna Karan, Calvin Klein and other big names. Anyway, Onward's new president Akinori Baba brought on Prabal Gurung and opened a New York design office in 2011 to revive the brand. While the online show was not quite as exciting or climactic as a live runway show, it certainly was convenient. I didn't have to wait for half an hour and I could see everything clearly. Plus, I was able to download images immediately and an interview was already transcribed. Gurung's inspiration was the girl.
