You may be en route to Cannes or returning from Saint Tropez, but how about a quick trip to Shanghai? In honor of Dior's recently-reopened boutique in Shanghai's Plaza 66, the brand is launching a limited-edition, 12-piece collection of iconic pieces in Dior blue. A mobile phone in sapphire crystal, a "Dior Lucky" scarf featuring a John Galliano-designed collection of the house's famous model, Lucky, a sequinned Lady Dior evening bag and a classic calfskin version---and Chic's favorite, this Mise en Dior blue pearl necklace. The pieces will be available exclusively at the Shanghai boutique, so book those flights now, darlings!

If you haven't seen Exit Through the Gift Shop yet (and we highly recommend you do), consider this your opportunity to get a little street art in your own home. Yes, we know that Space Invader, the artist, is based on Space Invaders, the game, but street art is having a moment---so here's your chance to jump on board. This toaster not only makes your bread a perfect golden brown, but it actually presses one of the mini invaders right into your breakfast. What can your work do for us, Banksy?

Sonia Rykiel may be known as the queen of knitwear, but the designer is now trying her hand at a different artistic medium. Works in pencil, markers, and pastels make up the first-ever exhibition and private sale of sketches by Rykiel, which will go on display June 4 at the Galerie Catherine Houard in Paris. Over 20 drawings, private sketches and notes will be on display in the 6th arrondissement (in the heart of St. Germain des Prés, less than a block away from Rykiel’s Left Bank flagship). The show runs from June 4 through July 24.

Those of you who think that Balmain is for girls' indulgence only are in for a Barneys awakening. The retailer is currently hawking a cotton denim double-breasted belted trench by the brand for a mere $1,135.00. It's seriously beginining to sound like a great deal in comprasion to the Balmain women's prices. (Remember this $5,000 army shirt?) Ladies, feel free to pinch!

So, Mr. Kanye West is currently recording his album in Hawaii and since he’s been spending all his time on his dreamy islands, he decided to unload his Hollywood Hills pad (3 bedroom, 3.5 bathroom,  4,214-square-foot property) for $3,995,000. Thanks to an L.A. real estate agency, we got a peek inside---and predictably, Kanye is big fan of Warhol, Murakami, stuffed animals, and giant Toy Story action figures.

It's also an excellent alternative for champers during your less indulgent periods. All you need now is some citrus! THE DETAILS: $199.95, Williamssonoma.com
