On the third day of New York Fashion Week, great things happened: new designers maximized their moment, new models became the models, and Brandon Maxwell brought everyone burgers and doughnuts. Here are some Deep Thoughts™ from #NYFW, Day Two.

Rebecca Minkoff

Minkoff hasalways been mindful of what working women like to wear. Now Rebecca Minkoff wants all women included in her swishy dresses, bold-print pants, and classic coats. For Fall, she's teamed with Stitch Fix to deliver her entire collection in XXS to 3XX, leaving no fashion fan behind—including the breastfeeding mother who modeled in her show (while togging between a baby monitor and a computer monitor, naturally).

Helmut Langs latest show was a job interview for your wardrobe. "Let me tell you how Ill make you succeed," said the lake blue suit. "I can take initiative," added the fluoride pink skirt. When the final look came down the runway—oil slick denim worn by skater boy Nathan Westling—it was like, “Absolutely, Helmut Lang. Youre hired.”

Christopher John Rogers came to play, the way a band booking its first Fillmore gig comes to play, the way a tennis champ on her first Olympic court comes to play. For his biggest show yet, the emerging designer drenched his satine dreams in citrus hues and vodka bravery, with clothes unashamed to take up headspace or real room on the catwalk. The models vamped like Pose stars and the crowd wondered, 'Where can I wear that shrugging tangerine ball gown? Whatever, Ill wear it to the produce aisle in Whole Foods—any chance I can get, you know?'

Stella McCartneys horse-print sweatshirts and dresses remain resale gold, but if The Real Real runs out of your size, theres hope at Baja East, where mustang-print pants and pony skin boots rope cowboy and cool-girl vibes together.

Area + R-13

How do you want to party? Area and R-13 have answers, and wow are they different. While Area went all-out extravaganza (including a corset dress that was also a birdcage), R-13 took the Pete Davidson approach to hotness.

That meant a slew of tees, hoodies, shredded sweaters, peek-a-boo boxer shorts (for girls!), flame-print sneakers, and other dream-wear for Sublimes after parties in the afterlife.
