One Isn’t The Loneliest Number

-------

Who says two is better than one? At least in earrings, girls are bucking that conventional wisdom—symmetry be damned. Our market director Marina Larroude has been a fan of the trend since Gaia Repossi launched her multipierced earrings, which she frequently wears in only one ear, and nurtured her obsession with innovative pieces by Ca & Lou and Noir. Her latest find is this white gold and sapphire cone earring by Parisian brand Pristine (available at Colette), featured in today’s In the Mood For. Two would be too many—go one and done.

Ready or not, New York fashion week is here. Today, Style.com’s Marina Larroude shared a few of her front row-worthy clothing picks for the week, from the Prada Saffiano leather car clutch to black and red suede Celine platforms—all pieces likely to catch a second look from Tommy Ton. Here, find out what the Style.com editors are planning to wear this week and what keeps them looking good after many late nights.

Nicole Phelps, executive editor
“Every time I go back and peek at Phoebe Philo’s Resort collection for Celine, I like it more. This week, I’m lusting after looks 4, 12, and 25, but especially 21. The two-tone turtleneck with the high-waisted leather jeans is the pulled-together yet cool look of my New York fashion week dreams.”

Tim Blanks, editor at large
“My fashion week essential is the backpack Tommy Ton has designed for Club Monaco. It’s a bottomless pit! My second essential is the oyster pan roast with uni toast, at the John Dory in the Ace Hotel. [It's] the kind of dish you leave home for and never go back.”

Marina Larroude, senior fashion editor
“The Dry Bar has finally opened a block away from my house. I hope to have more than a couple visits during the week, although in reality, I’ll probably be there just once. Ca & Lou, Jack Vartanian, and Repossi earrings will be my go-to jewelry—a fresh and easy update to any look.”

Celia Ellenberg, senior beauty editor
“I snagged my YSL Manifesto tote outside of Rodarte’s Fall 2010 show, and it’s been with me every season since. The pixelated strawberry printed satchel doubles as a pretty chic laptop carrier, and while I keep swearing that I’m going to invest in a new bag for fashion week that will hold my laptop, iPad, iPhone, notebook, flats, and my makeup essentials, said bag still somehow manages to elude me. Until it magically reveals itself, it’s all about doubling up with the YSL tote.”

Kristin Studeman, associate news editor
“Coffee, my iPhone (with my amazing black Rebecca Minkoff studded case for it), my trusty black wedges (so I can run around the city from early in the morning until late at night), plenty of party dresses, and did I mention lots of coffee?”

Jessica Minkoff, editorial coordinator
“My Motorola Droid, a.k.a. my work phone. This season I will be attending the shows so my work phone will come in handy. I’ll be able to stay on top of all my e-mails, write my reviews, and catch some of the catwalk action.”

Maya Singer, special projects editor
“My Equinox gym membership. Not much time to work out, but there’s always a locker room by the shows where I can change clothes and a cafe with WiFi for me to work in. And, sometimes, I can even squeeze in a Pilates class.”

Darrell Hartman, contributor
“I’ll probably go through at least a couple Scout Books notepads. They’re made from 100 percent recycled paper and their slogan is ‘Little Books for Big Ideas,’ which is galvanizing, even if the ‘Big Ideas’ part isn’t always true in my case. Then Byredo Gypsy Water lotion for the morning after: Too much partying dries me out.”

On Our Radar: Ca & Lou Earring

-------

I haven’t been wearing earrings in the past few years, but lately all I want is a new pair. Correction: Although my lovely daughter has been reminding me, “Mommy, you need two earrings, not just one,” a single statement earring is exactly what I am after. After lusting over Gaia Repossi’s Berbère earrings, I finally got my hands on one (yes, they are sold individually), and I’ve been wearing it in one ear and with an H.Stern stud in the other. It’s an easy update for my winter wardrobe. Now, I can’t get enough of it and I’m already looking for other options. During my market research, I recently found this great crystal piece from Ca & Lou by designers Berengere Lux and Carolina Neri. I’m planning on wearing it paired with a diamond stud in the other ear; It’s a perfect alternative for when I want to switch things up and wear my silver pieces.
