It’s hard to find something more classic than Ferragamo’s Vara—the box-toed shoe garnished with a golden plaque and a grosgrain bow. This year, the mid-heeled wares (whose “sister” shoe, the Varina ballet flat, was introduced in 2007) turn 35. And to celebrate the anniversary, the house is launching L’Icona—an online project in collaboration with photographer Claiborne Swanson Frank. The virtual endeavor features Swanson Frank-lensed portraits of twenty-one effortlessly stylish women—Alexandra Richards, Chiara Clemente, and Style.com’s own Marina Larroudé among them—wearing customized Varas or Varinas. “When I was a child, my chic grandmother used to wear Varas in black and brown,” says Larroudé, whose personalized kicks are pictured above. “I wanted a simple black patent shoe, because patent lasts forever, and I wanted to be able to wear mine every day, in the summer or winter, with or without tights.”
Icona.ferragamo.com will launch May 1, and the site will, for the first time, offer women the opportunity to customize their own pair of Varas (or Varinas—whichever you prefer). A video starring the twenty-one trendsetters (and their new shoes) will also screen on the site. Take a peek at the trailer for the Justin Wu-lensed short, which debuts exclusively below.
This week, Marina Larroudé rounded up some of the best coats and boots of the season. But as last week’s snowstorm reminded us, sometimes you need more than just outerwear. Update your cold-weather accessories with fur-trimmed scarves, gloves, and earmuffs from Miu Miu, Rachel Zoe, A.P.C., and more. With these—and the temperatures they’re forecasting—this may be a season to reverse Coco Chanel’s famous dictum: Before leaving the house, put one more on.

“When the Equipment trend was raging, I was still living in Corsica and I don’t think any store was carrying them. Mostly, I would read about them in magazines and totally fantasize about the understated luxury of the shirts. My then boyfriend, who was living in Paris at that time, brought one back to me,” Garance Doré tells Style.com of her first Equipment shirt. “Wearing it made me feel like the coolest girl in town.” And it’s still the coolest girls in town who are wearing the must-have blouses by the label. For her latest project, Doré worked with seven fashion tastemakers, including Taylor Tomasi Hill, Caroline Issa, and Style.com’s Marina Larroude, and photographed them wearing their favorite Equipment shirt from the Fall collection. “I mostly chose friends who wear the shirts in their everyday lives, and asked them to style it their way,” explains Doré. Here, Style.com has an exclusive behind-the-scenes first look at the shoot. Check back on Equipmentfr.com every week to see more images from the shoot and catch profiles of each of the fashion insiders.
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.
