On the second-to-last day of New York Fashion Week, when spirits are starting to flag, Michael Kors is the perfect person to turn that frown upside-down. After the designer’s sunny show, Diesel artistic director Nicola Formichetti will present his Nicopanda line. Last season was a “Japanese avatar, Hello Kitty street-punk concept,” as the designer told WWD; expect something equally outlandish for fall.

At Delpozo, bold-hue aficionado Josep Font promises something a little darker than previous seasons. Color us intrigued. And Jason Wu will show his latest collection for BOSS Women, the premium line of Hugo Boss.

Maxwell Osborne and Dao-Yi Chow are pulling double duty — after winding up their Public School collection over the weekend, the two will be showing their sophomore line for DKNY. They’re trading out last year’s dramatic venue — the tunnel below the downtown PATH station — for Skylight Modern in Chelsea.

For a glimpse at what Oscar nominees might be wearing this season, red-carpet followers should stop by Marchesa’s show. And at Proenza Schouler, Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez are joining the buy-now-wear-now fray by making a selection of pieces — eight looks and four Hava bag styles — available to buy the day after the show, for a limited time. It’s for the brand’s Early Edition initiative (which happens to be a lot chicer than the Kyle Chandler drama of the same name).
