Kooba Taryn Clutch

The Kooba Taryn clutch is so fabulous, the photo here simply doesn't do it justice.
The black Taryn will please gals who value elegance, while the silver Taryn is perfect for those who enjoy some tasteful bling.
Expect an insane amount of compliments when you carry this, be it with jeans or evening wear.
The amazing surface texture (tiny mirror-like leather squares) makes both versions equally outstanding, we're having a VERY hard time choosing a favourite...
Come over & hold it & you'll see why!
Now in store.

The Jack Spade nylon canvas messenger is an obvious winner for the following reasons:-
1. Jack Spade stuff is simple, polished & "metrosexual-classic", & that's cool.
2. The signature minimalist style ensures easy matching with any outfit -- whether you're chilling in your ragged ole jeans, or strolling about in your Zegna suit.
3. The thoughtful design provides plenty of room & pockets just the right size for carrying daily essentials.
The male complement to Kate Spade, Jack Spade was created in 1997 by Andy Spade (husband of Kate). The line is about to get a whole lot bigger: Just 2 weeks back, the label announced that new VP & GM Cuan Hanley (Paul Smith & Original Penguin alum) will be whipping up a new men's collection in 2009. Wonderful!
Jack Spade Nylon Canvas Day Bag comes in various colours. Red (not shown here) & Tank (a.k.a. olive-green) are SOLD OUT everywhere. Hurry over & get yours here!

Vanessa Bruno Athé Flutter Sleeve Demi-Sheer Tunic/Dress

A tunic/dress with delicate feminine detailing from Vanessa Bruno Athe.
The floaty silhouette & flutter sleeves will flatter both your figure & arms, while the pretty colour gives extra personality. (Pink/berry/burgundy are key Fall colours.)
With different accessories, this standout piece will help you work your magic perfectly either day or night!

Catherine Malandrino Belted Silk Dress

From Catherine Malandrino's Fall collection, worn by "Gossip Girl" star Leighton Meester on a recent shoot.
This is such an elegant, graceful piece. We love the pintucking on the bodice, the daintily-sewn pleats on the 3/4 sleeves, & how beautifully the dress moves around the body.
Just this past Monday, designer Catherine Malandrino marked her 10 years in fashion with the opening of her 10th store -- the 6,000 square foot "Maison Catherine Malandrino" mega store in West Hollywood, which includes a cafe, a bookstore, & all of Malandrino's best-loved pieces.
Dress also available in a rich, gorgeous shade of muskat (plum).
(You can pair yours with a larger-buckled belt, like Leighton Meester did.)

alice + olivia Jabot Dress

alice + olivia co-founder Stacey Bendet may come from a wealthy upbringing, but the story behind her meteoric rise has as much to do with friends in high places as burning ambition.
After graduating from the Univ. of Pennsylvania, Bendet worked in Paris & New York, before joining forces with then-partner Rebecca Winn to launch the alice + olivia (named after Winn & Bendet's mums, respectively) collection of skinny pants. (The pair was inspired by the "one item at a time" strategy that has a certain precedent in the industry: Ralph Lauren began with ties, Dianne von Furstenberg started with the wrapdress, Donna Karan was known for bodysuits.) Soon, celebs donning the duo's signature "staceypants" started getting mentions in top mags like Vogue & InStyle, & the label was off & running.

Today Bendet may be the sole public face of alice + olivia, but the "Hamptons princess meets Hollywood starlet" look of the label remains as sharp, fun, & updated as ever.
A key item from Fall 2008 alice + olivia, the Jabot dress creates the look of polished separates, all in one seamless, silky piece.

Paul and Joe Sister

Coming from a Parisian family of shirtmakers, Sophie Albou studied at the Institut Francais de la Mode and landed a job at Azzedine Alaia at the tender age of 16, before striking out on her own with the Paul & Joe menswear collection in 1995. However most people only started taking notice in 1997, when Albou introduced the Paul & Joe women's line. Today, Paul & Joe's numerous successful branches include fashion for men, women & children, beauty products, a special line at Target stores, & even limited edition Perrier bottles. Paul & Joe Sister is the quirkier member of the family, created for younger women looking for something urbane yet affordable.
Playful, feminine, a little retro-preppy, this patterned collection from Paul & Joe Sister features pieces that will look swell with everything from rich browns to subdued gold.
