In its report for fall, Pantone highlights the fashion items designers say you've gotta have for 2009.

ABAETÉ by Laura Poretzky: A beautifully tailored riding jacket in Gunmetal Gray or black.

Adam Lippes: A rich, French faux-fur chubby in Vibrant Saffron with an under layer of Moss Green.

Akiko Ogawa:
Hairy overcoat in navy — it's a constructive but nuanced item.

Alvin Valley:
Sweeping wide leg pants in Moonlight.

Baby Phat by Kimora Lee Simmons:
Denim — due to the democracy it has brought to American fashion.

Bibhu Mohapatra: The cocktail dress made entirely of woven peacock feathers with hints of Indigo silk — depending on the light and positioning, the colors in this dress reflect rich emeralds, Indigo, Moss and copper, so as the wearer moves, the color changes.
