WHAT: SK-II Skin Signature Melting Rich Cream
WHY: Because we love science. Yep, you read that right. And while we may not understand exactly how this cream starts as a solid and melts into our skin, it's still positively riveting. The cream's concentrated ingredients are released into the skin's surface for up to 12 hours of hydration---we'd say that should last you from coffee pre-Haider Ackermann on tomorrow to well past Loewe...
AVAILABLE: www.sk-ii.com and select Saks Fifth Avenue locations

WHAT: Sequoia Jane shopping bag
WHY: When you think Pierre Hardy, you probably think of the over-the-top, vertiginous footwear he concocts for Balenciaga, or maybe his colorful creations for his eponymous line. But we'll let you in on a little secret: the shoe guru is also the creative director of Sequoia, where he creates perfectly luxurious pieces that are a little, well, quieter than those famous lego shoes (there's a time and a place for everything, after all). We're partial to this lovely Jane; the taupe shade and generous size make it completely practical, but in python and leather, it's got enough chic to satisfy even the most devout Hardy fan.

WHAT: KENZOKI Belle de Jour Angel Eyes
WHY: Dark circles? Undereye bags? You've just started the fourth leg of Fashion Month---we get it. Luckily, where free radicals and cortisols (and, um, lack of sleep) can wreak havoc, there's this. No other eye cream on the market approaches the under eye area in the same way; the advanced formula found in Angel Eyes restores balance to the skin, leaving the eye contour area smoothed and regenerated. Just one more week to go!

WHAT: Bavna gold necklace
WHY: Gold and diamonds. Lovely, sure, but they're the oldest jewelry combo in the book. Looking for something a little more, well, surprising? This stunning necklace by Bavna---that's champagne rose-cut diamonds set in 18 karat black gold, darlings---might just make you look twice, which is exactly what we're after with our baubles.
AVAILABLE: By private appointment; contact Bavna at 213-489-1076 or email@example.com or contact D’Orazio & Associates at 310-860-0041.
