While the rest of us are still mulling over the Spring ’14 collections, which debuted on runways only weeks ago, Fendi is already looking ahead to Spring ’15. Sure, it may seem a little early to start thinking about what we’ll be wearing more than a year from now, but the house has a good reason for the jump-start. Today, Fendi announced that it will release a Spring ’15 capsule collection with eyewear designer Thierry Lasry (left), who’s best known for his hypersleek, sexy shades. The partnership marks Lasry’s first collaboration with a luxury fashion house. Between this, its buggy bags, and Spring ’14′s Delfina Delettrez-designed jewelry (remember those furry little ear cuffs?), we’d say Fendi is seriously upping its cool factor.
Label: Delfina Delettrez
Need to Know: Delfina Delettrez is spinning a lot of plates these days—literally and figuratively. No stranger to runways (she collaborated with Kenzo a few seasons back), the designer got a head start for Spring, debuting jewelry on the Fendi catwalk in Milan (yes, we have her to thank for those furry little earpieces). And there are more collaborations to come; keep your eyes on couture.
With Spring’s Never Too Light roundup, which Delettrez presented on spinning porcelain platters in Paris, she moved the needle a bit. She added more high jewelry, and offered a surreal take on Timeless watches, whose function is purely aesthetic. In place of faces, the wares boast big, colorful quartzes, and their diamond-set bracelets look more like snakeskin than pavé. She also revisited her classics, with pearls (micro, chocolate, gold, and white) and semiprecious stones such as peridot and topaz in phantom settings for rings and single earrings. Another standout: diamond rings sold singly or as a set.
She Says: “I love bending the rules of time. With these watches, it means you’re never late!”
Where to Find It: Opening Ceremony, Saks Fifth Avenue, matchesfashion.com, and delfinadelettrez.it, among others.

For Fall 2013, Delfina Delettrez pulled inspiration from above. It all began when she was gazing at the night sky and thinking about what—or, more specifically, who—might be up there. The result is her Magic Triangle collection, which features jewelry with three-pronged settings bearing sizable emerald-cut topazes in bold green, pink, orange, and yellow. Delettrez also showed several fresh iterations of house favorites, such as the eye motif (now in a pendant). Other newcomers include a bracelet version of the Piercing ring, a pared-down Tourbillon necklace set with tiny white and black diamonds; fin-shaped “shark attack” bracelets that boast bright gems; hook-shaped earrings garnished with topaz and pearls (the designer calls them the “fishing for compliments” earrings); and bright, foldable renditions of her mesh bracelets.
To showcase her Fall ’13 wares, Delettrez teamed up with filmmaker Daniel Sannwald to create a surreal short. The video, which debuts exclusively below, transports Delettrez’s colorful baubles into another dimension. As for her unearthly Fall influences, the designer is convinced that we’re not alone. “There’s definitely a higher intelligence out there,” she says. “To think we were the only ones [in the universe] would be egotistical.”
With the aftereffects of Hurricane Sandy still being felt all up and down the East Coast, Halloween may not be top of mind for every reveler. If you ask us, an evening devoted to candy consumption can only help. Even if you’re not feeling costume-ready, there are plenty of chic ways to give a subtle (or slightly less subtle) nod to the holiday. We’ve rounded up a few of our favorites from Mulberry, McQ, and more. They won’t get here same-day, of course, but it’s never too early to start planning for All Hallow’s Eve 2013.
