Italian designers have captivated the fall collections with their celebrated and sophisticated modernity. The major fashion houses continue to dig deep into iconic and archival looks that will satiate the “buy now-wear forever” approach to fashion. The sleek silhouettes and expert tailoring meet the increased demand for chic suiting options as we return to the office.

Fendi’s sharp-shouldered jackets are an ideal expression of female empowerment. The more traditional luxury brand, Agnona, maintains the standard for cool classics. Its exquisite selection of fine cloths allows for ease throughout the day but has adapted to the times with more forward detailing of leathered fringe. But that doesn’t mean there weren’t any go-big and go-bold presentations to be found.

Faux Leather Belted Vest $855. Olivela
