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?

Earlier today, Chic had a chance to catch up with celebrity stylist Rachel Zoe as she promoted the upcoming season of The Rachel Zoe Project. She dished on the top five items every woman should own, meeting Karl Lagerfeld ... yadda, yadda, yadda. But with all this editrix shuffling, all we really wanted to know was: Does she still wanna be an EIC?

 

“To be honest, I never say never. I think being an editor in chief of a magazine is a huge, huge job. In order to do that, all the other parts of my job would have to be pushed aside,” she said. “I can’t imagine doing that in the near future. If I did do that, it would be a hybrid of a few magazines like W, Bazaar, Elle, Vogue, Love, V, Visionaire. I think it would incorporate a lot of art and high fashion and interviews with interesting people. It would definitely be oversized!  With beautiful images and great photography. But that’s a huge, huge job.”

A million mercis to Hermès design director Gabriele Pezzini for dreaming up a suitcase tough enough for today's baggage handlers. With an aluminum shell, reinforced cowhide handles, and a carbon and Kevlar interior, this gorgeous beast was built to take a beating. The only question is, where should we go...?
