Every day, Style.com’s editors reveal their current obsessions—and where to buy them. Check out today’s pick, below.
I’ve never been a huge fan of yellow—and not just because it clashes with my olive skin tone—but after I saw Daria Werbowy toting the new canary Belt bag in Céline’s Fall ’14 ads, I’ve started to change my tune. The not-quite-neon color looks unexpected and chic with her big leopard coat. Even so, I could never justify paying such a high price for such a bold hue, but I was thrilled to find the same style in navy. It has everything you crave in a Céline bag—sleek silhouette, quality materials, uncompromised luxury—and I love deep blue as an alternative to black. Plus, unlike the Trapeze and Luggage bags, this one actually feels somewhat anonymous. I’d like to get my hands on one before the entire blogosphere snaps it up. I just need to save up my pennies first.
Céline Belt bag in navy blue natural calfskin, $2,950. Available at Bergdorf Goodman; call (212) 872-8757. Or visit celine.com for more information.
Could Daria Werbowy be fashion’s foremost chameleon? The Ukrainian-Canadian catwalker has inspired envy with her deliciously undone turns for Céline since 2011—some have gone so far as to deem her a doppelgänger for creative director Phoebe Philo. AG’s latest imagery, meanwhile, saw her stripped down, beachy cool, and nearly makeup-free in the brand’s beloved denim. And let’s not forget her recent Warhol-esque selfies for Equipment or her WSJ. September issue cover. Also on her busy autumn agenda? A third season as the face of Diane von Furstenberg. For the brand’s Fall campaign, shot on location at the Waldorf Astoria by Mikael Jansson (who earlier this year lensed Werbowy for The Last Magazine) and styled by Edward Enninful, Werbowy channels more than a bit of Diane circa her Studio 54 days. “This campaign is really all about the woman,” offered von Furstenberg. “She knows who she is. She is a free spirit even when all eyes are on her.” From her flowing tresses to (what else?) her gold wrap gown, Werbowy’s serving up the chic, take-no-prisoners sex appeal with which DVF is synonymous—paparazzi optional.

Ah, Daria Werbowy. The supe has a chic sprezzatura that defies logic—and that has made her Céline campaigns the stuff of legend. Now she’s teamed up with AG to parlay that effortlessness into a dreamy new video for the brand’s Fall collection. (It was recently announced that she’ll be the face of its next four campaigns.) Art-directed by Magnus Berger and Tenzin Wild’s Berger & Wild and shot at a private residence on Amagansett by videographer Jacques Naude, the film features Werbowy (sporting a perfectly washed-out denim jacket) alongside her fetching counterpart, Mathias Lauridsen. But for the luxury denim stalwarts, the springtime shoot wasn’t all beachside romps. Per AG creative director Sam Ku: “As a brand from L.A., we thought going to an East Coast beach like Montauk would be exciting and fun. However, when we got there, the day of the shoot, it was 45 degrees; very, very windy; and sporadically raining. We were kind of all asking ourselves, What are we doing here? We all had our disposable plastic ponchos, and the umbrellas were doing the flip-inside-out thing. But we all went for dinner after and commiserated together. And we had a few extra drinks just to kind of say, ‘Wow, we did it.’”
We can fairly feel the salt of the surf from here. For a bit of beach sans gale-force winds, watch the video, which makes its exclusive debut here.
Label: Frame Denim, designed by Jens Grede and Erik Torstensson
Need to know: Frame Denim cocreators Jens Grede and Erik Torstensson are on a first-name basis with their ideal wearer: Karlie (Kloss), Daria (Werbowy), and Lara (Stone). After all, the duo—the same creative masterminds behind Saturday Group—spend much of their time on set, directing said catwalkers. That is, confessed Torstensson, how Frame got started back in 2012. It was only natural that, surrounded by models, stylists, and editors, the two should design with these women in mind.
Debuting for Fall ’14 is the Frame Shirt, the all-new shirt category and next step in Frame’s goal of global fashion recognition. “We look at Frame through the eyes of a fashion brand rather than a denim brand,” Torstensson told Style.com. The all-black presentation marked the return of the label’s greatest distressed, coated, and vintage-wash hits. (No need to worry: The full range includes thoroughly modern skinny and high straight styles in gray, white, and navy.) But it’s the array of silk bombers, high-low tank tops, and tuxedo shirts that the pair expect to cause the biggest stir. And frankly, we agree.
They say: Pointing to a signature pair of slashed skinny jeans, Torstensson offered, “In the beginning, I thought it was too much. But a lot of really cool girls like it.”
Where to find it: Net-a-porter.com, Barneys New York, Revolve Clothing, Nordstrom, and shopbop.com.
There are scores of major fashion anniversaries on the calendar in 2014. Among them are: Lanvin’s 125th year, four decades of Diane von Furstenberg’s iconic wrap dress, and the thirtieth birthday of Donna Karan’s namesake collection. Last but not least is BCBG Max Azria, which will be celebrating twenty-five years in business with its Fall ’14 show tomorrow morning. After Max Azria launched his contemporary label in 1989, BCBG (the acronym stands for “bon chic, bon genre,” a French phrase meaning “good style, good attitude”) quickly became known for its playful, feminine wares with a bohemian edge. Today, the brand boasts more than 570 boutiques worldwide. And in addition to having longtime celebrity fans, including Angelina Jolie, Alicia Keys, and Melissa George, it’s had a number of top-tier models stalk its runways over the years—Helena Christensen, Natalia Vodianova, Erin Wasson, Lara Stone, Daria Werbowy, Freja Beha Erichsen, and Jessica Stam, for starters.
“I can’t believe it’s been twenty-five years,” BCBG’s chief creative officer, Lubov Azria (Max’s wife), told Style.com. “Each morning, I still wake up and ask myself, How do I make it better? We are in the business of inspiring people to do what inspires them,” she added. To commemorate BCBG’s anniversary, Lubov spoke to Style.com about some of the brand’s most memorable moments from the past quarter century. Click for a slideshow of her top picks.
