No, this is not a cutesy makeup puff. (Although now we're getting ideas...maybe Chic will buy deux so we can have one for that purpose.) Fendi, brand of all things fur, has released this truly adorable little pouf of fur as a charm, which comes in baby pink and pale gray. We like to think of it as the little sister of Louis Vuitton's neon racoon tails from Spring. Charm bracelet? Keychain? The possibilities are endless.

Another Gift From Phoebe

Now this is our kind of luggage. As if Phoebe Philo's collection of handbags for Céline wasn't covetable enough (see the first image for the particularly swoonworthy proof), the brand has introduced a new line of bags called Luggage, which is made of everything from baby buffalo, calfskin, suede, Mongolian lamb, thick flannel, crocodile and python. The shape stays the same, but it comes in three sizes: mini, medium, and oversized. Is it un peu trop to covet one of each?

When Mulberry Meets Glastonbury

England’s revered Glastonbury festival is exactly one month away---but for those New York types stuck stateside for the big event, Brit brand Mulberry put on a mini version last night on the roof of Milk Studios, complete with tents, wellies, and music by the likes of Chairlift and Mano de Dios. The occasion? The launch of photographer Venetia Dearden’s new book, Glastonbury: Another Stage, the product of her many, many years in attendance at the famously muddy music festival. “I’ve been going to the festival since I was about 8 years old,” she said. “I’ve had some really epic moments. You’ve got strippers, you’ve got clowns, you’ve got yogis…there’s this guy named Rory who goes every year and wears the same jumper every year and people pin things on it.” For Mulberry creative director Emma Hill, the atmosphere’s the draw. “It tends to be sort of this big blur—you’re just like staggering around in your wellies! Sure, some people are there to see the Rolling Stones or whatever, but certainly most of the people in this exhibit are just there for, you know, ‘love peace and mud’!” she laughed, pointing out the parties servers, who sported wellies and tees with the slogan. But the real question was: can you take your precious Mulberry gear with you to Glastonbury? “I think you should wear Mulberry wherever you want. True luxury and true modernity is not really caring about things.” Did you hear that, darlings? Take your Alexa bag to the mud. Emma approves!

Bright Idea

Book Lamp Book Lamp

After an evening full of festivities, often we’re too fatigued at the end of the night to pick up a novel and work in some reading time. Luckily, this Book Lamp designed by Myung-seo Kang is the perfect incentive. The pop-up light fixture is disguised to look like a livre, but it provides ambient light whenever needed. When you find yourself starting to doze off, simply switch off, close it shut, and store in the bookshelf. Now if only they could make one that looks like a French Vogue...

Hermes Silkycity Bag Hermes Silkycity Bag

Leave it to Hermès to create a tote bag that's so silky smooth, it's practically liquid. The appropriately named Silkycity Bag is made of leather and silk, and feels weightless as you tote it across the city. The series of carryalls is created with silk artwork from the Republic of Cameroon in 1997, as well as a re-interpretation of the “Brides de Gala” scarf. Who said you can only wear Hermès scarves around your neck?
