HOTTEST, NEW­EST, LAT­EST ... HOTTEST,

1 LEATHER WEATHER

Mark­ing cre­ative di­rec­tor Alessan­dra Facchinetti’s de­but, the first run­way show for Tod’s proved a huge hit in Mi­lan. The per­fo­rated leather skirts and fringed mules cer­tainly had style en­thu­si­asts in awe.

2 BOL­LY­WOOD BOMB­SHELL

Guess has added Bol­ly­wood icon and for­mer Miss World, Priyanka Cho­pra, to its grow­ing sta­ble of iconic Guess women, fea­tur­ing her in the Hol­i­day 2013 cam­paign. Shot by mu­si­cian Bryan Adams and di­rected by cre­ative di­rec­tor Paul Mar­ciano, Cho­pra was cap­tured as the movie star she is, at home in a Mediter­ranean villa. “Priyanka reminds me of a young Sophia Loren and top ac­tresses of the 1950s,” says Mar­ciano. “Her con­fi­dence, strength, and sen­su­al­ity re­flect the qual­i­ties I al­ways look for in a model.”

3 DE­SIGNER BUZZ

This sea­son brought plenty of rea­sons to cel­e­brate some of our favourite fash­ion de­sign­ers, with news of fresh in­vest­ments and ap­point­ments ar­riv­ing from ev­ery di­rec­tion – the big­gest news be­ing Ni­co­las Gh­esquière at Louis Vuit­ton, of course. 2013 proved to be a ban­ner year for Bri­tish de­signer Jonathan An­der­son, who is head­ing to Loewe to be cre­ative di­rec­tor and has also se­cured LVMH as an in­vestor in his own la­bel, J.W. An­der­son. Marco Zanini, for­merly of Rochas, was named cre­ative di­rec­tor of the reimag­ined house of Schi­a­par­elli, while No. 21’s Alessan­dro Dell’Ac­qua will step into Zanini’s post at Rochas.

In other moves, shoe de­signer Ni­cholas Kirk­wood has joined the LVMH sta­ble, and Christo­pher Kane an­nounced that he will be open­ing his first store thanks to a hefty in­vest­ment from lux­ury pow­er­house Ker­ing, which has also bought stakes in Joseph Al­tuzarra and To­mas Maier’s brands as well.

4 HORSE POWER

Ring in the year of the horse in Diane von Furstenberg’s sig­na­ture wrap dress. The iconic piece cel­e­brates its 40th an­niver­sary in 2014, and this spe­cial horse-print edi­tion is bound to bring you plenty of love and luck in the year ahead.

Louis Vuit­ton’s L’In­vi­ta­tion Au Voy­age con­tin­ues in the mag­i­cal city of Venice. Ari­zona Muse, clutch­ing a gor­geous Vivi­enne bag, meets the leg­endary David Bowie at a party where he is play­ing a harp­si­chord, singing “I’d Rather Be High” from his 2013 al­bum The Next Day. Muse re­opens her eyes and the party van­ishes, like a dream, and she leaves on an an­cient Chi­nese boat for her next ad­ven­ture. Watch the full video on Louis Vuit­ton’s YouTube chan­nel.

IN­NER BEAUTY

Qui­etly se­duc­tive, fea­tur­ing op­u­lent de­signs off­set with Swarovski crys­tal de­tail­ing, Valis­ere of­fers en­tic­ing lin­gerie with­out sac­ri­fic­ing func­tion­al­ity and com­fort. De­tails such as baroque-style em­broi­dery meet the finest del­i­cate lace on clean-cut pieces, from long-line bras to em­pire-cut camisoles.

ON POINTE

Ex­press­ing his love for clas­si­cal bal­let, Zang Toi showed a grace­ful col­lec­tion fea­tur­ing cus­tom Loro Pi­ano silk jersey and di­vine silk cashmere for Spring/ Sum­mer ’14. A long­time pa­tron of the Amer­i­can Bal­let The­atre, Toi chose Cory Stearns, prin­ci­pal dancer at ABT and per­sonal friend to play muse for the col­lec­tion as well as to walk the run­way. Ex­pect shades of bal­let pink and ul­tra-fem­i­nine tulle de­tail.

8 IN THE STARS

Greatly at­tached to signs, sym­bols, and num­bers, Made­moi­selle Chanel, born a Leo, had li­ons in var­i­ous ma­te­ri­als dot­ted around her Rue Cam­bon apart­ment. On a visit to Venice af­ter her lover Boy Capel’s death in 1919, Chanel found strength in the beauty of the float­ing city and its many mo­saic and stone lion stat­ues (the lion is the sym­bol of Venice). First in­tro­duced in Chanel Fine Jew­ellery in 2012, the lion makes its ap­pear­ance again in the new Sous le Signe du Lion high jew­ellery col­lec­tion of 58 stun­ning pieces. A time­less sym­bol of courage and strength, wear th­ese sump­tu­ous pieces as chic tal­is­mans; who knows what luck the lion could bring you?

9 SURF’S UP

Emilio Pucci’s cre­ative di­rec­tor Peter Dundas chan­nelled his love of the deep blue for Cruise ’14. Think sheer chif­fon, ripped denim, and soft, flowy maxis.

10 MA MAI­SON

Re­cently re­vealed dur­ing Mi­lan Fash­ion Week was the world’s first ever Bot­tega Veneta Mai­son, sit­ting pretty on Via Sant’An­drea 15 in Mi­lan. Housed within an 18th-Cen­tury build­ing and cov­er­ing more than 11,000 square feet, the Mai­son show­cases the brand’s en­tire prod­uct range. Ex­pect both men’s and women’s ready-to-wear, fine jew­ellery, lug­gage, and so­phis­ti­cated eye­wear.
