With our incessant ranting on the need for cleaner, more sober palette cleansers, we were more than floored by Phoebe Philo's smart collection for Celine S/S 2010 and equally pleased to see some of our other favorites from Stella McCartney to Chloe also propose practical yet sophisticated offerings that had undertones of one our favorite times, Minimalism. And with that recharged enthusiasm comes our latest Smart Buy, this chic 90's era Norma Kamali blazer that's been given a crisp treatment thanks to Kamali's signature "paper" technique. With its lustrous pearl hue, classic shape, and simple spare composition, we think this is one of the sharpest buys you can make at the moment. Consider it a smart alternative to the classic black blazer for work and think of how smart it will look with everything from nautical navy wide-leg trousers to next season's must-have leather shorts.
