Next spring, Roger Vivier is taking us on a “stroll through the heat of summer,” and I couldn’t be happier to oblige early. Inspiration from the hot sun and cool evening breeze translates to pop art-heavy pieces that snap, crackle, and yes, pop.

Lately, I’ve been shifting into neutral when it comes to my bags. White may not seem like the most audacious color (or technically, even be a color), but set against rich, autumnal reds, oranges, and yellows, there’s no better way to set yourself apart.

Hedi Slimane has proven he can make just about anything cool, including sheer tights under shorts, as seen on Saint Laurent’s Spring ’15 runway, and logo-punctuated clutches.
