1. Blue Jeans, Baby
Andy Warhol once said he wanted to die with his blue jeans on. Yves Saint Laurent admitted he often wished he’d invented them. Don a pair of AG jeans, and it’s easy to understand why. The brand’s high-end denim offerings are vast and classic—from the stylish dungarees (flare-cut, skinny, boyfriends and beyond) to the cool shirts, dresses and sweaters. And come February, denim lovers will find it all at the brand’s new 2,000-square-foot Fashion Island boutique. Look for AG’s spring collection inspired by French new wave cinema. The design team used looks from Jean-Luc Godard’s 1960s masterpiece Breathless as a template for the collection. The result: a chic selection of understated pieces that are effortlessly cool and easy to style. Oui, oui!
Bold and beautiful—it’s what you’d expect from Louis Vuitton, and it’s what you get with the design house’s new jacket collection. Tops on our list is LV’s metallic blue number—the brilliant gold zippers pop against the leather, and the fur collar gives it a touch of chic softness. It’s an out-of-the-box take on a classic.
3. Dramatic Digits
Valentino’s bold, leopard-print calf-hair gloves boast supple leather palms and a luxe cashmere lining. And the iconic pyramid studs and turquoise cabochons on the trim add a little extra eye candy.
4. Fur Real
Step into the ski chalet in style in Stuart Weitzman’s Blizzard boot. The soft suede is draped in mink and constructed atop a sturdy rubber lug sole. It pairs perfectly with skinny jeans and a cozy sweater.
5. Soft Touch
Max Mara’s versatile line of luxe leisurewear, Weekend Max Mara, aims to solve every modern woman’s ongoing enigma: a ready-to-wear and accessories collection that transitions with ease from day to night. The collection’s latest edition proves the Italian scion of timeless style is onto something with its new Pasticcino clutch covered in brown mink. Meaning “small sweet pastry,” the moniker couldn’t be more fitting for the marvel. With a detachable strap and expandable portions for all your necessities, this bag has as much going on as the woman wearing it.
