D&A returned to its two usual locations on West 26th Street in Chelsea with another excellent international mix of curated, boutique-friendly brands, many of which were returning to the show.

Here are five that were indeed standouts:

Most fashion-forward label: AVN

This Italian brand made quite an impression with a huge full-length black puff coat and a selection of cool looking denim that looked as if it had been dip-dyed in bleach.

Coziest accessories: Babymoh by Hinterveld

This colorful line of kid mohair scarves, shawls, hats, collars and cuffs from South Africa appeared extra comfy and warm on a cold New York winter’s day though its color palette was more reminiscent of a multihued boquet.

Best Asian inspiration: Bsbee

Another Italian brand, the Bsbee collection again looked strong and its quilted kimono-inspired jackets were definite favorites.

Best newcomer: The Ugly Girl

This relatively new line from India includes original sweatshirts with intricate embellishments, prints or interesting fabrics and wholesales for $80 to $150. Ugly is one thing it definitely is not.

Best take on a varsity jacket: Zero Degrees Celsius

California-based designer Jerry Chen’s line included some unusual knits, including a sweater with decorative pearls, but his coolest look for the season was this varsity-style jacket with striped cuff details and shaggy sleeves.
