WHY

WHY stands for the partnership between Herm├Ęs Yachts and Wally. This new joint venture has conceptualized a motor yacht that redefines the art of living on the sea in green style. Powered by a diesel electric engine, it is also fitted with 900 square meters of photovoltaic panels. Amazing!

Common Projects AW09

One of our favorite Manhattan-based men's labels Common Projects makes clean and under-stated shoes with a very luxurious feel. Every pair of Common Projects shoes has an ID number printed on the heel but apart from that, there’s no other logo or label on them. All models are human-stitched in Italy with the finest materials. Here's a few of our favorite mid to high options for Fall.

Lipstick Queen

Lipstick is back!!!! Poppy King launched her lip color brand Lipstick Queen in 2007, right when the tide started to turn, so the collection has been a terrific success -- thanks to the gorgeous colors and rich textures. For women who aren't ready to abandon their lip gloss just yet, Poppy has her newest launch, Fifteen Minutes of Fame Pop Art Gloss, which includes 15 shades of what she calls, "clear, bright, unadulterated color. No shimmer whatsoever -- I think this is the new frontier of lip gloss." Ladies, if not up on Lipstick Queen now is your chance!
