Vogue Forces of Fashion: Shop 4 Designers Speaking at This Year’s Event

With 55 days until Vogue’s Forces of Fashion event, there’s plenty of time to secure your ticket to the virtual affair, and of course, plan your at-home look. Complementing a well-stacked lineup of creatives already announced including Lizzo and Ethan James Green, is an illustrious list of designer speakers whose talents are well worth noting (and shopping). As of right now, there’s Virgil Abloh of Off-White and Louis Vuitton; Daniel Lee from Bottega Veneta; Jonathan Anderson of Loewe and JW Anderson; and Sarah Burton of Alexander McQueen, all of whom currently offer a chic selection of both timeless and seasonal investments this fall. To make things easier, we’ve edited down an assortment of pieces you can shop ahead of the event that you’ll want to wear all season long, like Zoom-ready printed statement dresses and logo-clad knits. Just don’t forget the ticket.

Virgil Abloh, Daniel Lee, Sarah Burton, and Jonathan Anderson are speakers at Vogue’s 2020 Forces of Fashion conference, taking place November 16 and 17. Learn more and buy tickets here.

Daniel Lee, Bottega Veneta

Neutral polo knit dresses and pleated wide-leg trousers designed by Daniel Lee achieve modern minimalism perfectly. They work wonders when paired with two of the season’s best color trends, like these muted lemon mules and this buttery brown leather Cassette bag.

Jonathan Anderson, Loewe and JW Anderson

Thanks to Jonathan Anderson’s work at Loewe and his namesake brand JW Anderson, we’re leaning heavily into patchwork sweaters, paisley-printed dresses, crossbody bags in warm autumnal tones, and Chelsea boots for fall.

Take your pick between elegant tailoring and romantic fall dresses from Sarah Burton’s Alexander McQueen. Both pair well with her iconic waist belts and drawstring bags.

Virgil Abloh, Off-White

There’s no shortage of logo-clad pieces from Off-White. Choose between a script logo turtleneck sweater and a checked midi-skirt, or a discreet but recognizable binder-clip-embellished handbag from Virgil Abloh.
