Lisa Guimond, fashion features editor:

1. Marc Jacobs: There was virtually nothing I didn’t want to take home from this collection. The gothic vibe was sophisticated and fierce, and the pattern play was mesmerizing.

2. Ralph Lauren: The result of oversized fits and heavy layering is both otherworldly and quite current. It’s like the Wild West toned down for city living. And, talk about a statement necklace. 

3. Calvin Klein: Simple et chic, as they say. 

4. J Mendel: There’s something quite nostalgic about this look. In fact, Mendel’s collection as a whole seems to go back in time to channel a muted kind of urban glamour.  

5. Clover Canyon: This is an infinitely wearable outfit, but a tad underwhelming. The patchwork pattern is less playful than I would hope for and the silhouette is eclipsing rather than flattering. I’d take some of the pieces as separates rather than as a whole. 

Noreen Flanagan, editor-in-chief:

1. Calvin Klein: I’m an easy mark for any shape that references a '60s silhouette. The calf hair patchwork detailing is minimalist perfection. 

2. J Mendel: Posh, sexy and powerful. The fashion trifecta. 

3. Marc Jacobs: '70s-kink-boudoir. Marc’s back and he’s on fire. 

4. Ralph Lauren: Cozy but a little ho-hum. Next.

5. Clover Canyon: It reminds me of a uniform you might wear if you worked in a coffee joint circa 1970s.
