Tonchi will tell you: It’s virtually impossible to travel in style without a little something Valextra. Blessedly, the Italian leather emporium just opened its second flagship store in Korea. The boutique is located in the center of Seoul at the haute department store Lotte Avenuel. We suggest celebrating with a full set of matching luggage (and perhaps a passport case).

Those of you fantasizing about the new creative director being at Margiela might have to wait for a year or…ten. “At this moment and as far as we know we’re not having a creative director coming in anytime soon,” a company insider told us at the brand’s couture presentation. “When Martin left in December, we had to regroup, and since January we all worked as happy and productive team. No one has left, and no one is about to leave. I think we all expect to be working together and continuing the company’s legacy for a long time.”

Thank goodness! You're no longer glued to your laptop on Mondays, circa noon. Pourquoi? Soul Cycle, the svelte savior of many of New York's chicest from Hana Soukupova to Linda Wells to Chelsea Clinton, has gone even more digital. Now, you can sign up for the hotly-booked classes from the comfort of your PDA. Just click here on your iPhone or Blackberry, enter your login info, and select your location, class, bike. Will it be Daniel's Tuesday at 7:30, with all the Alanis Morrisette and Madonna? Or perhaps Melanie's folksy 5:30 p.m. ride? MB's techno-fueled power hour? We'll take them all, obviously, as this is one addiction Chic can get behind. And it goes so nicely with our equally relentless Marc Jacobs collection "problem!"

Surrounded by the colorful gowns of Oscar De La Renta’s 2011 Resort Collection is perhaps the most lusted-after accessory the label has to offer...the Mosaico iPad clutch. Never to be out-shined, Oscar De La Renta has joined the likes of Ferragamo, LV and Gucci in creating their own case for this season’s most popular gadget. The embroidered lambkin clutch is lined in ultra-suede and snaps securely closed. We wonder if Oscar himself is an iPad devotee?! THE DETAILS: OscardelaRenta.com, $290.00
