Leave it to two of the coolest designers on the scene, Phoebe Philo at Celine and Nicolas Ghesquiere at Louis Vuitton, to channel retro styling with a single statement making earring.
At Celine, the look was handcrafted with found objects that while covetable, look like they could be good fun reproducing on your own. And at Vuitton, Ghesquiere turned a logo moment into something abstract, modernist and vaguely ethnic. Truly too cool.

Each week we'll be highlighting iconic designer must-have's that are both highly covetable and original to boot.
First up, we pay homage to the late great Gianni Versace, whose inimitable printed silk baroque blouses were all the rage from the hip-hop scene, to the colorful Palm Spring's retiree's from the late 80's and on.
We at Vnyc have been lucky enough to come across these vivid tops every now & then and as you can imagine, are always on the lookout for a new score.

Seldom does being an insomniac deliver a payback as when something as special as Nicolas Ghesquiere's historic debut at Louis Vuitton goes livestream from the runway. That being four in the morning...
Set to a soundtrack mocking his 'copycats,' Ghesquiere delivered the sci-fi tinged cool he's known for.

Any self described fiend can attribute their initial eagerness towards fashion by trying to cop the look of their favorite personas with glorious abandon, and that friends, is one of the most intoxicatingly indulgent joys of self styling.
Who better to look to when attempting to channel the girl on your mental mood board then industry veteran Andrea Linett, and her approach to real-world style at I Want To Be Her?
What made for an undeniably boring ceremony gave way for a handful of divine looks from Oscar winner Lupita Nyong’o giving her generation Audrey Hepburn appeal in custom Prada, to Diane Kruger in sublime Valentino and Catherine Martin in lush Prada Pre-Fall.

Think what you can of #Normcore, as while we aren't on board for propagating what we consider a refusal of beauty (you must be basically good looking from scratch to don 'mom' jeans with swagger), we do like to think of it in a completely different way.
Take Joseph Altuzarra's continual twists on everyday staples. One season it was clever takes on railroad stripes, and for Fall we've got our eyes on his deluxe reworking's of another piece of Americana; the polar fleece jacket. We for one, never thought we'd ever want to wear one until Altuzarra dreamed his up in shearling.
