Lanvin's brand-new three-story Madison shopping mecca was designed with a 1920s-era apartment in mind---so who can blame you for wanting to move in? Of course, not just any luggage will do for a new home so chic (not that you'll need to bring much, as the shop already houses everything your heart desires). May we suggest this trolley suitcase in Alber's own subtle navy leopard print? You're sure to feel right at home at 815 Madison Avenue... THE DETAILS: Lanvin Voyage Trolley, $2,550, www.barneys.com

Aspiring Holly Golightlys, take note: Tiffany's 1837 collection sunglasses are every bit as glam as Ms. Hepburn's famous shades, but even more practical on those days of the mean reds---if you can't haul yourself across town to Tiffany's, that is. Add one LBD and you're good to go! THE DETAILS: Tiffany & Co. 1837 sunglasses, $250, www.tiffany.com

The divine Smythson is enjoying a winning streak, thanks to a new series of unusual young designer collaborations. Recently, Erdem Moralioglu worked his magic on the legendary brand’s stationary, and now fellow London-based designer Holly Fulton’s fluid illustrations will be found on Smythson’s aqua and lemon-colored goatskin leather treasures. (Fulton won the Swarovski Emerging Talent prize at the British Fashion Awards last year.) We smell a collector's item!

Vuitton Can't Buy Happiness?

Didn't we always know Louis Vuitton operated on a higher level? Italian artist Francesco De Molfetta created this logo-emblazoned statue of the Virgin Mary for a biennial exhibition of sacred art in Abruzzo, although he's not exactly declaring the divinity of the revered Marc Jacobs-helmed brand. De Molfetta describes the work as "[denouncing] a society based on the cult of appearance through the use of a brand that represents the search for ephemeral happiness.” We'll concede that logo-mania may be a bit out of hand---but denouncing Vuitton? Sounds like blasphemy to Chic.

Chic Report (and New Yorkerobsession Brunello Cucinelli's Fall 2010 ad campaign has just been released, and as much as we're loving this near-perfect New York weather, it's looking oh-so appealing to cozy up with some of Cucinelli's famous cashmere. This image, shot by Christian Moser, is described as an "homage to Asia, so far and yet so near, a land of nomads, emperors and monks, the productive land of tenacious, gentle peasants, a land of bold warriors and subtle thinkers, where spirituality is in the soul of everyone, free and faithful only to the heart." The slogan? The most beautiful thing in life is the ability to love. Done and done, darling!
