Loewe Elephant bag

Elephant Bag in the Room

Sure, a coin purse version of Loewe's Elephant bag is trundling toward it-bag status, albeit miniature. But since the defining characteristic of the world's largest land animal is its size, why not go big? Like the shoulder version at Dover Street Market, which comes in a variety of happy colors, including rainbow. 

$1290 at Dover Street Market

Walter Van Beirendonck, fall 2016

Hooked: Walter Van Beirendonck Sweaters

Sex is better in a happy sweater, like these from Walter Van Beirendonck. Look a little deeper, though, and the social commentary becomes clear — and therein lies the beautiful complexity of the Belgian designer.

Vetements

Hooked: Vetements Spoon and Vial Pendant

We haven't a clue why anyone would need a tiny spoon and vial around their neck. Perhaps to sprinkle a little extra Splenda in their tea on the go, or pumpkin spice in their latte? Whatever the case, Vetements' pure brass necklace and pendant is the most stimulating of fall/winter paraphernalia — or rather, accessories. Grinder pendant sold separately.

Undercover horn hat

Hooked: Undercover Horn Hat

Japanese label Undercover and milliner Kijima Takayuki have again teamed up on a devilish range of hats. This time the collab features horns that, using an internal magnet, can be moved to any part of the wide-brimmed bowler — which of course is made in horny Japan. What's next, horn bags?

Thom Browne 'Hector' bag

Hooked: Thom Browne 'Hector' Bag

With Thom Browne's 'Hector' bag, named after his own pet dachshund, you can walk the dog without the need for a pooper scooper. In black grained leather or brown beaver fur, the Italian-made duffle comes with an interior pocket, signature tricolor lining, a zip closure, and an engraved bone-shaped collar. Plus, with four padded legs, it can stand on its own. Woof!

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.
