Richard Lambertson and John Truex of Lambertson Truex presented a fall collection Sunday evening that was remarkably fresh, making it well worth the trek to West 17th Street. Staying true to their luxe style, the accessories designers concentrated on skins, showing their recognizable evening numbers in browns, reds and metallics. But the newest looks came from their expanded collection of day bags and shoes. Cool blue and gray tones and animal patterns accompanied the signature neutral palette, while a patchwork-skin tote and leather and zebra-patterned pony-hair boots were standouts.

On Monday, London accessories designer Anya Hindmarch showed a collection that channeled the Fifties and Sixties collaborations of architect John Lautner and interior designer Arthur Elrod. "Their work together looks modern today, but in fact is decades old," said Hindmarch. "It doesn't age, and that's the way I want my collection to be." The inspiration was evident in the structured bags and shoes, pieced together with geometric shapes. Stark patent leathers and textured metallics adorned the collection that had options for both the retro-minded or those looking to the future.
