When it comes to must-have spring ac­ces­sories, fash­ion queen Ikram Gold­man is all about these play­ful, per­fectly chic pins.

Leave it to Chicago bou­tique owner Ikram Gold­man to un­earth an es­sen­tial spring ac­ces­sory that isn’t just fash­ion­able—it’s a whim­si­cal com­ment on fash­ion it­self: Lux­em­bourg-based de­signer Anne-marie Her­ckes’s stun­ning pins and brooches, which are fes­tooned with minia­ture 2-D heels, jack­ets, and oh-so-taste­ful tweeds. “I found Anne-marie at a Paris trade show where there are hun­dreds and hun­dreds of ex­hibitors,” Gold­man ex­plains,

“and she stood out so bril­liantly be­cause of the hu­mor of each piece. The fact that you can find the per­fect bal­let shoe with the per­fect lit­tle leather jacket and the per­fect lit­tle denim pants—they’re like chil­dren’s pa­per doll clothes, but she’s us­ing a very stylish, clas­sic look that’s vis­ually for­ever.” Even bet­ter, says Gold­man, the pieces can be used in myr­iad ways. “You can take a very ba­sic black sweater and throw a pin on. You have a lit­tle scarf, or a great jacket, or a bag—you can throw one of these pins on.

It’s in­fi­nite play­ful­ness.” $225–$250 at Ikram, 15 E. Huron St., 312-5871000; ikram.com
