Prada derbies

Hooked: Prada Derby Boots

Miuccia Prada's fall women's collection borrowed heavily from men's. Take, for example, these chunky derbies, a mix of mosh-pit platforms (i.e. rubber toecaps) and mountain-climbing boots (multi-colored laces). But, sorry men, these boots are made for women.

Balenciaga Bazar bags

Hooked: Balenciaga Bazar Bags

Those enormous striped leather totes Demna Gvasalia showed in his debut Balenciaga collection are now hitting retail. You know the ones. Called Bazar bags, they're synonymous with knock-off shopping along Canal Street in Chinatown, and reminiscent of Phoebe Philo's fall 2013 collection for Céline (the show that launched a thousand sniffs of cultural appropriation).

Gucci for Dover

Hooked: Gucci Men's for Dover Street Market

Alessandro Michele's Gucci garden continues to grow. A new four-piece men's capsule collection, designed exclusively for Dover Street Market, incorporates more of the designer's enchanted floral and animal motifs: a sweatshirt with an elaborate tree design, a check flannel shirt with a sitting rabbit, red flannel pants, and a gray denim jacket with a brocade patch of a friendly dog and cat. The words "L'Aveugle Amour" (Blinded Love) appear throughout.

Hooked: Vetements Bic Lighter Heels

Got a light? You nearly would with these Vetements boots and mules with a skinny heel bearing the uncanny shape of a Bic lighter. Colors, too, appear to mirror those of the portable plastic torches — for those moments you could use a fire under your ass.

Hooked: Gucci Studded Heels

There's so much happening on these Gucci sandals, by Alessandro Michele, that we don't know what to point out first: the gold pointed studs up the heel or the silver studs on the front and sides, the multicolored leather or the curved chunky heel, the brass feline head or the round gold buckle. It's maximal over-stimulation done right.

Majesty Black

Hooked: Majesty Black Gloves

Indulge your inner man-eating vamp with these stiletto-nailed soft leather gloves from Majesty Black. The accessories label makes all kinds of clever gloves (which turn up in a lot of music videos), but we're most smitten with the cat-clawed variety, with their sharpened nails plated in gold, silver, rose gold, or gun metal. Those nails, by the way, are permanently set with special hardware, so they never come off.
