Yes, there is a location on Lafayette Street in New York, but like with so many things—Prada, Prada, and Prada—the goodies from Santa Maria Novella are so much more fun to score in Italia. The farmaceutica, founded in Florence in 1612, has some of the luxest herbs, cosmetics, lozenges, and other various potions on the market. Ideal for gifting. Fun fact: their all-natural deodorant is a fashionette savior on these long, sweaty days tussling with a hectic schedule. THE DETAILS: Corso Magenta 22, Milan, 02 805 3695.

What better way to spend your drizzly Friday afternoon than with a Gant short highlighting Michael Bastian's Fall 2011 collection. The little gem was shot during his NYFW presentation and captures the essence of his Nordic winter-inspired pieces. Of course, you also get to peep plenty of model scruff and sexy pouts to entertain you (and your giggly colleagues) all day. Amuse-toi bien!

Thanks be to Tod's for showing its Fall collections at the Villa Necchi Campiglio, the same villa in central Milan where I Am Love was filmed. No Swinton? No problem. This afternoon, editors were treated to all the driving loafers their hearts could desire—to say nothing of the ponyhair buckle clutches, fox-y boots, glass-encased statement heels, and Derek Lam. More photos to come, but first, enjoy the view. Click through the Gallery for more.
