Talk about a lifestyle brand! Picture this: you're wearing your cozy Missoni knit caftan and curling up on your favorite Missoni couch. You're thirsty, so you sip from your Missoni San Pellegrino. The only thing missing? A little ambiance---but Chic has your solution: a Missoni candle, of course! This totem-striped candle in signature Missoni shades is the perfect thing to complete the picture---well, until they come up with Missoni dinner. THE DETAILS: Missoni Totem Alto candle, £219.00, harrods.com

"My entire routine takes about 15 minutes. For evenings, I'll make an effort to put on some concealer to even out my skin, some silver Nars Highlighting powder, M.A.C. blush, Shiseido mascara, and some Chanel lipstick. This is usually accomplished in a taxi."
---Cecilia Dean, to Harper's Bazaar

Brunello Cucinelli is truly a renaissance man, and yesterday he added yet another feather to his cashmere cap. The University of Perugia awarded Cucinelli an honorary degree in philosophy and human ethics during the commencement Thursday morning. The Umbrian entrepreneur has created a revolutionary business dimension in the village of Solomeo, and he humbly took to the podium, explaining, “Today, this meeting between a businessman and the University of Perugia, one of the oldest and most prestigious of its kind, flatters me extraordinarily. I firmly believe that the universities have always been, and will always be the salt of the earth.” Congratulations, graduates!

Did you read The Daily am New York yesterday? We took to the streets with $1,000 to see how much diamond that would buy us on Fifth and Madison Avenues. A thousand bucks also won’t get us too far with the Thakoon for Tasaki collab, but no matter; we’re willing to patiently save up for this marvelous 18K yellow gold and pearl ring. THE DETAILS: colette, $3,452

Prabal Gurung has proven himself a force to be reckoned with in the fashion world, but he's not finished yet. The designer has curated an exhibition by London-based artist Cary Kwok, which opens at the Flag Art Foundation in Chelsea on November 18. “I admire Kwok’s work,” Gurung wrote on his blog, “because it is precise and meticulous yet there is this tongue-in-cheek humor to it at the same time. From far away the works are fascinating but up close they are even more powerful.” Kwok's blue ballpoint pen drawings include images of suggestive male nudes, celebrity portraits, and more, and will be on view through January 29, 2011.

If you were craving a Pabst Blue Ribbon and a slice of Americana Thursday evening, Drive in Studios was the place to be. Tommy Hilfiger presented the new TOMMY Spring 2011 collection as guests soaked in the uber-relaxed vibe over beer and pretzels. Models lounged in a powder blue VW Beetle, while pretty ikat, nautical stripes and pops of neon illuminated the room. The Tommy Hilfiger store at 375 Bleecker Street has officially been converted to a TOMMY boutique, catering to young things. With the weekend officially upon us, we'll take that PBR now, please.
