WWD asks retailers which single collection of the season they liked best, and why. A global array weighs in.

Colleen Sherin, senior fashion director, Saks Fifth Avenue:
“Chanel was a true highlight. With an awe-inspiring stage set chock full of Chanel art, created by Karl Lagerfeld himself, the audience was able to interact and engage with the brand well before the show even started. This artful happening culminated in a spot-on collection brimming over with enough covetable pieces to keep any Chanel collector very happy.”

Linda Fargo, senior vice president, fashion office and store presentation, Bergdorf Goodman:
“It’s a great tribute to the overall season when choosing one collection above all is so difficult. However, Céline keeps bubbling up to the top. It was so memorably vibrant and energetic, and a little shocking in the context of Phoebe Philo’s more minimalist leanings. You know when something’s a game-changer when you want to eradicate your closet and restock it with a new vision like this.”

Barbara Atkin, vice president of fashion direction, Holt Renfrew: “Dries Van Noten was a favorite this season. We have offered this collection at Holt Renfrew for over 26 years. More than ever, his clothes speak to the times we are in and to the women who wear them: strong, powerful, individual and incisive. Dries offered a beautiful homage to artistry, with each individual item becoming collectable art. These clothes were emotional, special and a true tour de force. Pieces transcended day into night, and reflected the melding of seasons.”
