TL;DR—Too Long, Didn’t Read—is’s answer to Fashion Week roundups. It’s fun, it’s fast, and hold tight, because it’s gonna get you through this Monday like coffee and baby goat videos combined.

One year ago, Millennial Pink powder-puffed its way across the New York runways. Today, it made its grand return… and this time, it’s for guys. The dusty pink shade of Glossier dreams swathed four shows in one day: BOSS, Sies Marjan, Tibi, and Prabal Gurung. You’ll notice Prabal put pink on Anwar Hadid…

Today’s MVP award goes to the backstage crew at Rodarte, who managed to preserve all 46 of the show’s magical looks (including intricate hair and bright, bold makeup) in the pouring rain. The collection was breathtaking, the rain was cinematic, and Paige Goodings, the Bureau Betak intern pictured below on umbrella duty? Give her a promotion and a RADARTE hoodie stat, because she rocks.

These boots also rock, and they’re by Mansur Gavriel. You know them as the purveyors of blush pink bucket bags, but in their latest See-Now-Buy-Now paradise, they’ve got baby duffle bags and glitter shoes, too.

Among the more genius presentations this season was Sandy Liang, who showed her latest feast of shaggy coats and party slips at a Chinese restaurant downtown. The models sipped tea and ate Chow Fun, and the look book was printed as a takeout menu. Amazing!

If you’ve still got those long metal barrettes from junior high, grab them ASAP—they were all over the Tibi runway models, worn at the jawline, sometimes alone and sometimes in gleaming rows of three. You can literally buy them at K-Mart right now.
