Once August hits, NYC mailmen and messengers are working over-time, all in the name of fashion. Publicists, designers, and graphic artists have been sketching, planning, and collaborating—and not just on the shows themselves. Fashion Week invites, while perhaps not as important, have also been on their minds for a goodly while, for what's more representative of upcoming collections than the invitations that precede them? While we got our fair share of standard stock (in one case, a plain xeroxed sheet of paper that wasn't trying to be ironic), there were a couple of missives that caught our eye. The best of the bunch includes fantastical dioramas (Tommy Hilfiger), delicate macaroons (Honor), and a pencil-and-paper set that we can't wait to use (Hexa by Kuho). Maybe they're not so great for the environment, but we've rounded up 12 rad invites that sure look good on our desks.
