Tracking down that must-have, buzzed-about designer item is about as easy as scoring a front-row seat at Fashion Week. They tend to be here today, but sold out after you mull for an hour as to whether your wallet can stomach it. We would be wrong to assume, however, that what's selling like hotcakes in our hometown is also causing international waves.
Setting our sights overseas, we did a little digging to discover which designs have been killin' it in the European, Asian, and Middle Eastern markets
, as well as which goods, stateside, seem to be flying off the shelves (online or otherwise).
Here's our roundup, including a mix of labels and styles, of the key products causing a sensation, according to the stores themselves. Click ahead for some of the international It items, and let us know which one surprised you most. Sadly, don't expect all of these popular picks to be available — when we say they're selling, we mean they're selling out!
