9 Top Editors Spill Their Must-Haves For Fashion Week

The phrase, "it's a jungle out there," comes to mind when we start thinking about New York Fashion Week. Well, if you just mentally replace the squawking birds with stilettos, the lush foliage with long cab lines, and the wild cats with long-legged models. You need to come prepared, and no one knows more about what to bring than NYC's top fashion editors. We picked the brains of some notable front-row fixtures to find out which products they just can't survive without. And these tent vets have thought of it all. From a New York Mag fashion editor whose fuzzy mittens fight against West Side Highway winds to a New York Times man about town who swears by a certain caffeinated pick-me-up, this list of insiders dish on goodies that will definitely come in handy for more than just the February days of mayhem. Consider this your NYFW field guide that serves as a cheat sheet for real life, too. The only thing we're missing: a mosquito net for all those pesky paps.
Check out 29 must-have products for Fashion Week and beyond, from nine top editors.
