Shoes and wallpaper will be on hand at Adam Lippes: The ever-busy designer is debuting collaborations with Malone Souliers and De Gournay. Zimmermann, which recently got a plum placement in Beyoncé’s fashion-packed “Formation” video, will show at noon. (Another Queen B favorite, 5:31 Jérôme, is on at five.)

Also at noon, Rebecca Minkoff will present her consumer-facing show, which will feature some of her top customers in the front row. With Burberry, Tom Ford, and Vetements among the designers turning to in-season show schedules, this will be an early indicator of how well that approach works.

None other than Ms. Erykah Badu will be styling the Pyer Moss show. The collaboration between Badu and designer Kerby Jean-Raymond is “like Picasso inviting Monet over,” she told Complex, with characteristic self-deprecation.

Phelan, designed by Alexander Wang alum Amanda Phelan, had a stunning, dance-filled debut last season. She will once again show a bit off the beaten path (at La MaMa in the East Village) and is collaborating for a second time with the modern dance company Vim Vigor, who ought to bring her tech-influenced designs to stunning life.

Alexander Wang (at 5 p.m.) and Altuzarra (at eight) are holding it down for New York’s young Establishment tonight. It’ll be hard for Wang to top last season’s tenth-anniversary fête, complete with Hooters wings, but we’re sure he’ll try.
