The Best Stuff to Buy on Fashion’s Night Out
Lanvin's Cartoony Tech Extras
We're suckers for Alber Elbaz's kooky, colorful sketches—and in honor of Fashion's Night Out, the designer's slapping them onto tees, iPhone cases and iPad covers. Needless to say, we're obsessed.
Loeffler Randall's Odile Sneakers for Bird
On FNO, designer Jessie Randall will be heading to Bird in Brooklyn, where she'll unveil her label's new $195 Odile sneaker exclusively at the store. As if you needed any extra incentive to buy, 10 percent of the evening's proceeds will benefit Habitat for Humanity.

James Franco's Tees for 7 For All Mankind
As part of his ongoing collaboration with 7 For All Mankind, actor James Franco will launch his new T-shirt collection for the brand on September 6. He's already directed a few fashion films for the denim label, and the graphics for the four $89 tees on offer were actually gleaned from thousands of Polaroids taken by Franco during those campaign shoots. Each shirt is signed by the actor/director, but no word on whether he'll make an in-person appearance at any 7 For All Mankind boutiques on FNO.

Fendi is releasing a bold new pair of sunnies accented with the house's signature Pequin pattern just for FNO, which will be available in Fendi stores across the globe.
