Style Notes: Fall Preview

It Bauble to Replace Aching Void Left by Demise of It Bag
Fall 2009 is the season of the jewelry collaboration. Breaking into the New York scene is Hervé Van der Straeten, whose geometric jewelry will gild Ruffian's collection (left). Jen Kao and Joseph Altuzarra have tapped Eddie Borgo, Bensoni has nabbed Bing Bang's Anna Sheffield, Alexander Wang has partnered with Paris Kain of Abraxas Rex, and Thakoon Panichgul has teamed up with Fenton's Dana Lorenz. First Lady favorite Jason Wu, meanwhile, has enlisted Philip Crangi to add a "tough element" to his fairy tale-themed collection.
