Kal Ruttenstein, senior vice president of fashion direction, Bloomingdale’s
WHAT HE'LL BE WEARING: “Although I usually wear Sean John from head to toe with Nike sneakers, since I’ve lost 60 pounds I’ll be wearing a suit and probably a raincoat or a puffer coat to protect me from the elements.”
FASHION SHOW STAPLE: “It’ll be me and my trusty striped cane designed by Chuck Price.”
LOOKING FOR: “Spring has been about color — it’s certainly selling — so we’re going to continue our quest for color.”
TOP SHOWS: “There are many we’re excited about, like Marc Jacobs, Zac Posen, Derek Lamb and Proenza Schouler.”
NIGHTTIME INDULGENCE: Ten o’clock dinners at Schiller’s Liquor Bar.

Jaqui Lividini, senior vice president of fashion merchandising, Saks Fifth Avenue
WHAT SHE'LL BE CARRYING: “A tan Prada chain-handle bag because, [even though it’s from spring], you can still wear it with a fur.”
FASHION SHOW STAPLE: Hermès zippered organizer.
LOOKING FOR: “We’re always looking for newness, anything directional, certainly new designers and inspiration from established designers.”
MOST ANTICIPATED SHOWS: “I’m excited to see everything.”
NIGHTTIME INDULGENCE: “Sleep. I’m seven months pregnant, after that last show I’ll be going home.”
