Shop Hopping

So you love porcelain memorabilia, fine, but how many times can you admire and caress your Judy Garland figurine collection? (We’re looking at you, Rufus Wainwright.) Franz porcelain breaks the spell with a one-off collection of dolls commemorating Alber Elbaz’s designs at Lanvin. Each “Miss Lanvin” is outfitted in one of his iconic cocktail numbers, hand-finished, produced in limited editions and sold
exclusively at Franz and Lanvin boutiques worldwide… More shameless promotion from Vogue, but at least this one comes with a cute accessory: a purple pochette from Alexander McQueen, featured in the ubiquitous September issue—as in 2009, not the movie. With amethyst metallic leather and rocker hardware, the clutch is available exclusively at Alexandermcqueen.com. Not since Tammy Faye’s eyelids has there been this much metallic purple… For its latest grunge revival, Doc Martens has enlisted the collaborative prowess of Raf Simons and Yohji Yamamoto. For his part, the austere Belgian tapped his minimalist roots, channeling Carl Andre and Donald Judd into
16-hole metallic boots, while Yohji, in classic Japanese style, offers
deconstructed patchwork tweed… Bless gives you another reason to stay in
bed with its Lake Bed Sheets, available later this month. With a Lake
Placid print, the sheets are like a mini-getaway without even leaving the comfort of your bed. And, dare we say, wet spots will blend right in. We suggest you pre-order now… Always one for over-the-top fantasy, jeweler extraordinaire Tom Binns has partnered with Disney
to produce chunky pieces in conjunction with Tim Burton’s Alice in
Wonderland. Six limited-edition pieces will be carried at Barneys and Bergdorf when the film
hits the big screen in February.
