RYKIEL FOREVER Since Madame Rykiel’s passing in August, we’ve been nostalgically looking back on her free-spirited, rule-breaking designs and signatures – from those iconic knits to classically Parisian stripes to her unfinished hems and raw edges.

DAILY DOSE Fresh off Moschino’s Milan runway and straight into stores, this season’s tongue-in-cheek phone case from the ever-subversive Jeremy Scott is already covering Bella Hadid’s handset. If that fact and its design still doesn’t completely convince you, the $64 price tag should.

YSL, BABY Following Hedi Slimane’s abrupt (yet not shocking) departure from the house of Saint Laurent, Anthony Vaccarello’s first order of business was to put the ‘Y’ back in YSL via accessories in his premiere collection.
