Ageless Style

Hermes Kelly bag in transparent vinyl

This week, Alexander Gilkes and Aditya Julka’s online auction house Paddle8 is introducing its first foray into style—an accessories sale curated by Advanced Style photographer Ari Seth Cohen. Like his senior street style subjects, Cohen’s picks are as chic as they are timeless. Here, the photographer reveals five highlights from the sale.

Bidding ends July 10,


Boucheron Vanity Case “The Advanced Style ladies have taught me that style is all in the details and that you must be prepared for any occasion. What better to reapply your signature makeup look at a cocktail party than with this glamorous 1950s vanity case?”


Hermes Kelly bag in transparent vinyl “I have photographed many women around the world carrying vintage Kelly bags, but I have never seen one as unique as this limited vinyl edition. A perfect bag for Singing in The Rain.”


Celine medium trapeze bag in black stamped crocodile “My dear friend (and frequent subject) Joyce Carpati always says that when it comes to style that, ‘Elegance is of the utmost importance.’ This classic Celine bag will add a bit of elegance to any outfit.”


Tiffany & Co. shell pill box “Why not think about a beautiful Mediterranean landscape while taking your morning vitamins? Sounds a little like Diana Vreeland, no?”


Gold swirled pendant necklace “This piece is a real show stopper. Any woman with Advanced Style will tell you that you can wear the simplest black dress as long as you have a great piece of jewelry. This necklace reminds me of something Ava Gardner may have worn in one of my favorite films, The Barefoot Contessa.”
