Several designers showed their own renditions of the an anything-but-traditional winter coat.

Keeping us warm was only part of the fall 2017 message in New York. Power and pride seemed to be another underlying theme this week. For example, designers reworked the classic suit in menswear-inspired prints for a look that is all “she-E-O”.
