Fashion Week Essentials


Jessica Sailer, Vogue Market Editor
1. A red Givenchy long-strapped bag because I am loving red this season and I plan on mixing it with basic black.
2. A Flip camera.
3. Black Céline motorcycle jacket for day and night.
4. Accessories: Red Yoji gloves, vintage Tom Ford sunglasses, and my cherished Ginette rose gold necklaces—I don’t go a day without them.


Harley Viera-Newton, Dj
1. My new Céline bag, which I absolutely love.
2. My boyfriend gifted me with this amazing bright orange Smythson diary and pen so I can keep track of everything.
3. I have managed to lose my passport twice so my brother gave me this purple Aspinal of London case to deter me from leaving it on the airport counter!
4. My sunglasses are Illesteva and are definitely key for the early mornings.
5. I always have Hermès leather gloves because not only do they keep my hands warm, they are also the best accessory ever—two birds, one stone.
6. Dior mascara and a lip balm.
7. My BlackBerry is such an essential that I recently gave it a leopard makeover!


Eddie Borgo, Jewelry designer
1. Edie: American Girl by Jean Stein and George Plimpton: It is really one of the best accounts of New York in the 1960s.
2. This signet ring is a variation on the one from my men’s collection.
3. The Hermès business card holder was a gift from my business partners for being awarded runner-up in the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund.
4. I rarely wear my glasses, but I bring them just in case. I got the frames in a vintage shop in London.
5. I bought my hat years ago at Arnold Hatters on Eighth Avenue, which unfortunately no longer exists. I never leave home without it!
6. Scrapbook.
7. This Heirloom Parker pen belonged to my great-great-uncle, Edward Farina, after whom I was named.

I enjoyed this feature very much too, looked at the Celine mini-luggage in a whole new way after that. Maybe it's the perfect small day bag I've been thinking of.

Alaxandra:Thank You very much.
Lin:The smaller Celine version is trully beautiful. Can be a great alternative for the legendary Chanel 5.55.

Milly said... nice to have a nose into the insiders wardrobes. I just did a post on what the Elle team are wearing!x

Such a great selection. I love features on people's bags/homes etc., how they live their lives.

This is a great post- I love "what's in your bag" type deals. There is no way, however, that Celine bag would be big enough for me to take anywhere.

I loved this feature too. The voyeur in me loves seeing other people's essentials.
