A Spring 2015 Checklist

W’s fashion market and accessories director is on the hunt for a few key items.


1

There is something so beautiful about blurring the line between old and new, lavish and modest. That sort of undone luxury, created here using Miu Miu pieces, feels very appropriate right now.

Miu Miu top, $990, skirt, $1,675, belt, $305, coat, $5,930, bag and shoes, prices upon request, miumiu.com; Sidney Garber necklace [in hand], $10,900, bracelet [bottom], $9,500, and ring, $3,575, Sidney Garber, Chicago, 855.742.7237; Hermès bracelet [top], $14,300, 800.441.4488.

These statement necklaces from Bottega Veneta will dress up any look.

Bottega Veneta necklaces, $2,350–$2,600, bottegaveneta.com.

3

If I buy one thing for spring, it will be a feminine blouse like this one from Rebecca Taylor. It’s more versatile than you would ever imagine!

Rebecca Taylor blouse, $325, rebeccataylor.com.

4

The must-have grab- ’n’-go pouch has a fun new shape, thanks to Loewe’s Jonathan Anderson.

Loewe clutch, $990, loewe.com.

5

A showstopper of a dress from Marco de Vincenzo, one of the most creative young talents today.

Marco de Vincenzo dress, $3,256, Neiman Marcus, 888.888.4757.

6

I’m loving the look of oversize earrings. These colorful danglers from Chopard are especially covetable.

Chopard earrings, Price upon request, 800.CHOPARD.

7

Leave it to Dior’s Raf Simons to put a modern spin on the 18th-century court dress.

Dior dress, $10,000, 800.929.DIOR.

8

Surf shorts such as these from No. 21 are the summer’s answer to pants. They look just as cool with a silk blouse and heels as they do with a T-shirt and sandals.

No. 21 shorts, $1,035, numeroventuno.com.

9

Louis Vuitton has done the boot of the season in the color of the season: oxblood, or, as Pantone likes to call it, Marsala.

Louis Vuitton boots, $1,390, 866.VUITTON.

10

This Givenchy by Riccardo Tisci number has inspired me to give my leopard-print bag a rest and pick up a bold floral one instead.

Givenchy bag, $2,850, Bergdorf Goodman, New York, 212.753.7300.

The collections were full of fantastic hats. My favorite was this gaucho-style topper from Saint Laurent by Hedi Slimane.
