When we were younger, we weren’t really the type of tykes to dream about the wedding dresses we’d wear or about the ball gowns we’d don to our first ball. We were more into concocting wild, beautiful outfits we’d rock to Fashion Week. And, even though we’re actually attending the shows now, that doesn’t mean we still can’t play pretend. Ahead, check out the five ultimate outfits our editors would wear if access were no object. Proenza Schouler, Miu Miu, Junya Watanabe — meet the Sandman!
Christene Barberich, editor-in-chief
“I want this outfit to be MINE. The wallpaper print Suno dress, the Robin’s egg blue tassel earrings, the perforated bag that feels so much more fun than your average flap clutch…and these Miu Miu boots make my heart palpitate. That white sole speaks to me…”

Piera Gelardi, executive creative director
“This is my updated take on peasant/folk dressing…eat it, Laura Ingalls! I really love the juxtaposition between the embroidered patch against the leather jumper, and how graphic the Kenzo eye is.”

Connie Wang, senior global editor
“There’s a lot going on — I know — but I’ve always been so drawn to this cartoony retro-Americana thing as interpreted through a Japanese lens. Patchworked, deconstructed denim, oversized varsity jackets, ugly shoes… I think my goal in life is to look like the love child of Rei Kawakubo and Bozo the Clown.”

Annie Georgia Greenberg, NY editor
“I’m holding on to the feminine skirt/crop top silhouette for as long as the weather will allow. In my fantasy look, the day-to-night pair gets extra fun with wild accessories like this out-there clutch, bright lips, killer heels, and unique sunglasses that — let’s be honest — might not fit my face in real life. A girl can dream, though, non?”

“This is a dressed-up version of my daily uniform. Same ol’ jeans with a little (or, in this case, a lot) more sparkle.”
