Throughout the week, buyers from Bergdorf Goodman, Bird, Intermix, and Jeffrey New York will tell us which runway looks they plan to snatch up for fall. These are the first picks from Roopal Patel, women’s fashion director at Bergdorf Goodman. Reyes’s bold colors, Sari Gueron’s sheath dresses, and DVF’s patterns all appeal to her so far this week.
Jose Ramon of Reyes held his first formal runway presentation on Sunday. His collection was perfect for urban-chic women. I loved the bold color palette: The grays, purples, and sapphire blue looked modern and fresh. The gray funnel-neck military dress, purple nylon windbreaker, and navy skirt with royal-blue-and-yellow piping were some of my favorite looks.

Sari Gueron is becoming a staple for fashionable girls. Her collection was rife with chic and grown-up looks with just enough edge. My favorites included a gray folded-collar dress with a buckle, a wool sheath dress with black piping, and a loden leather-trimmed cape. I loved the short-sleeved blouse with sequin trim, worn with wide-leg pants and a sash belt.

Diane von Furstenberg
Diane von Furstenberg never disappoints her fans. Susan Sarandon — sitting in the front row with her daughter Eva Amurri — was a testament that Diane dresses for women of all ages. The Miró-inspired collection had a beautiful play on color and pattern, not to mention the divine shoes from Christian Louboutin. I liked the black short-sleeved dress with the red half circle, the black leather ruched coat, the anthracite leather metallic coat worn over a gray wool dress, and the magenta V-neck dresses. So colorful but still wearable.
