Although Fashion Week has just begun, there are already some standout pieces from the Fall 2008 ready-to-wear collections that are sure to incite massive trends and plenty of knock-offs. H&M or Forever 21, anyone? Here are a few memorable looks straight from the runways of New York’s Bryant Park so you can get a head start on planning your fabulous fall wardrobe.

Bag Lady

Recently I was on a six-and-a-half hour cross-country plane ride sitting, in awe, next to a woman with a gorgeous new Louis Vuitton monogram handbag. It wasn’t the bag exactly that caught my eye (although it was a beauty). I was amazed that throughout the entire trip, the woman cradled the purse in her lap— careful not to sully its perfect leather—not once letting it touch the ground. I’ve never been that obsessed with a bag, although I’ve come admittedly close. Close enough, in fact, to consider buying something like this:
