Is there anything more dispiriting than the limp spritz of an empty perfume bottle? Of course there is! But if you really (like, really, really) love Guerlain, why not spare yourself the heartache? Fontaine Imperiale, a one-liter version of the fragrance maker's cult scent, Mon Precious Nectar, should do the trick...THE DETAILS: $9,000, Bergdorf Goodman

Missoni's Spring 2010 ad campaign featured a sunny reunion of the Missoni family, but for fall, they've seriously sobered up. The latest fashion house to go the video route, they hired filmmaker Kenneth Anger to shoot Ottavio, Rosita, Angela, Margherita, Jennifer and Ottavio Jr. brooding like nobody's business (click through for more images). It's quite a move away from Juergen Teller's spring shoot, n'est-ce pas?

Miami Chic-sters can now experience alchemist—the one-stop shop for essential fashion "elements"—in a whole new way. While we adore their original Lincoln Road location, their new outpost is in a league all its own. Founders Erika and Roma Cohen have set up shop on the 5th floor of 1111 Lincoln Road, Herzog & de Meuron’s acclaimed architectural masterpiece. Needless to say, the airy aesthetics of the new concrete and glass space allow the couple's luxury wares to be displayed and appreciated as the works of art they are!

Chic ran into Thakoon Panichgul last night during the Australians in New York Fashion Foundation’s summer cocktail party at the Crosby Street Hotel. The designer toted along his miniature pup, Stevie, who seemed to enjoy all the Oz-themed revelry. “Mostly she just sleeps when I take her out,” he laughed. “No one really notices her when I’m at events. I’ve never been kicked out for bringing a dog, at least! Although I have been kicked out of cabs. They see her, and say, ‘Get out!’ I mean, how much damage can a tiny dog really do?”

Just a day before the announcement that Aliona Doletskaya would step down from her post as EIC of Vogue Russia, the magazine's web site posted this video of Jean Paul Gaultier chatting with the editrix over lunch. Our favorite moment? Gaultier recalling the time he was mistaken for Christian Lacroix ("No, Sonia Rykiel!" he responded.) As day two of this Russo-saga unfolds, Chic is still wondering ... will Victoria Davydova be asked to fill Doletskaya's shoes? And can she? Editors who can charm a finicky French legend in the middle of Red Square whilst chain smoking don't come along every day ...

Darlings, we all know fashion is an artform, right? Sure we do. But Balenciaga’s Fall 2010 collection gives the trope a whole new meaning. Chic is obsessed with the geometrically designed heels and platforms. Lace-up or moccasin-style, they're guaranteed to turn heads from SoHo to Milano. How can you say no?
