So we rounded up some of the certified heaters that land in stores this month, like Fendi’s cross-body Baguette, Dries Van Noten’s tie-dye denim, and Sandy Liang’s next-gen deep pile fleece.

Omega’s Special Speedie
In 1969, to celebrate the Apollo 11 moon landing, Omega made 1,014 solid-gold versions of the Speedmaster Buzz Aldrin wore on the lunar surface. To celebrate the 50th anniversary of man’s first moonwalk, Omega made 1,014 more.
A Brand-New Baguette
Originally introduced in 1997, Carrie Bradshaw turned the Fendi Baguette into the first It bag. Now that statement bags are de rigueur for fellas, too, Silvia Venturini Fendi has turned the iconic design into a cross-body clout pack.

In Simon Porte Jacquemus’s hands, the carpenter pant is fit for a late-autumn getaway to the south of France.
Raf Simons x Dr. Martens Derbies

Dries Van Noten’s Far-Out Denim
Dries Van Noten’s Fall-Winter 2019 collection was inspired by his “heroes,” one of whom is Jimi Hendrix—hence the tie-dye-printed jeans, which are an early contender for grail of the season.
Now you can get Missoni’s famous hippie-sprezz knitwear in overshirt form.
When America’s most iconic jeans get in on the action, you know leopard print—which Levi’s lasers onto its denim with a proprietary new technology—is a trend that’s here to stay.
Sandy Liang Hybrid Fleece
Sandy Liang’s women’s fleece jacket was the hottest jawn in menswear last fall. This season, it returns as a hybrid-down jacket.
Dior x Raymond Pettibon Art Shirt
If you’ve ever worn a Black Flag or Sonic Youth tee, you’ve probably worn a Raymond Pettibon graphic design. Kim Jones gives the punk artist the couture treatment.
Burberry’s Rubber Runners
