On Saturday, the jet set will descend on the Hamptons to watch Veuve Clicquot’s annual Polo Classic, where ponies, bubbles, and pastels will undoubtedly abound. To commemorate the summer event, Charlotte Olympia’s Charlotte Dellal has teamed up with Veuve to create a champers-themed capsule. Aptly named Lovely Bubbly, the range, which will be available at the designer’s New York store and online this July, comprises such clever, booze-inspired wares as a gilded, bubble-embellished Lucite clutch, black satin sandals garnished with a Champagne flute, a “Cheers” bag, and a pair of the designer’s signature Dolly pumps that are made out of—what else?—gold-speckled cork. “I always enjoy designing with cork,” said Dellal, who offered that her favorite way to drink Champagne is in a large glass over ice, or á la piscine. “It has a natural beauty and functionality.” We do, however, suggest sipping in moderation while donning Dellal’s sky-high platforms—overindulging will likely result in a literal bottoms- (or, rather, soles-) up situation. Ranging from $595 to $995, the collection debuts above, exclusively on Style.com.
The age-old problem: How to hold that icy-cold flute of Champagne? This season’s solution: The new Veuve Clicquot and Marc Jacobs collaborative gloves ($35), which hit Marc Jacobs stores and marcjacobs.com tomorrow. They’re the latest in the Champagne-maker’s annual winter “Clicquot in the Snow” series, which teams with fashion and beauty brands on exclusives (in the past, DKNY and cosmetics guru Fresh) and touts the bubbly as an apres-ski drink. Luckily, no slopes are required. Regrettably, no Champagne is included with purchase.

It’s “Cosmic Love” between Gucci’s Frida Giannini and Florence Welch. After meeting the ginger songstress at the Grammys this year, the designer says she was so struck by Welch’s presence that she inspired Gucci’s Fall ’11 collection. Why?

Daphne Guinness—shy? The heiress, who got dressed for this year’s Met gala in the windows of Barneys, admits, “Maybe this is my way of getting more comfortable with people.
