That most iconic of quilted items on every fashion lover’s lust list, the Chanel bag, is not, shall we say, priced for every style maven. With that in mind, we’ve focused on two parallel categories: designer finds and their just-as-cool lower-priced counterpoints. From Burberry Prorsum’s towering take on a country boot to a knit-sleeve field jacket from Topshop, there’s something here for everyone, even quilted blush from Dior. Click through for our favorites: Preen’s diamond trousers, inspired by Alexander Wang’s cushioned leg warmers, and, of course, some accessories from Chanel.
Tuesday The Cut published industry-insider answers to their question, “What’s the ultimate job a model can book these days?” Paul Rowland and Crystal Renn both gave their say on the matter and the consensus, albeit with some nuance, strongly points in the direction of, wait for it, a cosmetics or fragrance contract.

This contraption is no joke.

When seeking info, go straight to the expert. And keep the answers snappy. So goes our thinking behind “The List,” in which top authorities distill their smarts on topics ranging from beauty to culture to style practicalities.

The price of entry to this page isn’t terribly high, so long as the editorial in question bears a photography credit to Hedi Slimane. Such is the photographic power of the former Dior Homme creative director, that when he publishes a story it is more often than not worth a look, e.g., Vogue服饰与美容 September 2011 featuring Karmen Pedaru. Add to the story Ford Men’s Cody Marquette and the piece appearing in Another Man Autumn / Winter 2011 is in business.
