Five things we're Jonesing for—right now

Balenciaga bag
Balenciaga's classic City bag has long been the accessory for the posh-meets-mosh crowd. But while it couldn't possibly rescue CBGB, proceeds from the sale of this two-tone version at Barneys—which, as we reported in Shoptart, is going freako for eco this holiday season—will help save polar bears through Greenpeace's Project Thin Ice.
Lowdown: Black and white suede, loaded with zippers and steel studs.
Price: $1595
At: Barneys New York, 660 Madison Ave, 212-826-8900

Rodarte gloves
Laura and Kate Mulleavy's Rodarte collection for spring was their most delicate to date, but the slavish fans of Japanime and Buffy couldn't help but throw in a few hardcore pieces—whip-worthy leather gloves, for instance. "We needed that surreal and sinister part of the look," say the sisters, "like cat claws."
Lowdown: Made in Paris. Also look for gloves with hand-blown glass flowers, made in collaboration with Mark Walsh Leslie Chin.
Price: $550
At: Dover Street Market in London and Colette in Paris.

Pierre Hardy sneakers
While some shoes seem stuck in the past, Pierre Hardy's whiz and whoosh with futuristic flair. Take, for example, his new Colorama hi-tops, which bear more than a passing resemblance to Balenciaga's Lego-bright sports stilettos. Oh yeah, he designed those, too. "The way I work is abstract," he tells us, "I try to bring an idea to its maximum intensity."
Lowdown: Available in men's (seen here) or women's.
Price: $440
At: the Pierre Hardy store in Paris, Dover Street Market in London, Isetan in Tokyo and Barneys New York.

Michel Gaubert for Longchamp bag
Michel Gaubert is taking the world of digital back to its analog glory with MG, a retro-printed range of bags for Longchamp. Though versatile, the eight pieces—which range from a Nano cover to a jumbo carryall on wheels—are made for a DJ's transient lifestyle. For Michel, that could mean jetting from a Chanel fashion show in Paris to a Gucci store launch party in Mumbai.
Lowdown: Made of vinyl and coated cotton canvas.
Price: $90 - $1,580
At: Colette from December 3, Longchamp boutiques from the end of January.

Richard Nicoll Ksubi sunglasses
His graduation collection (Central St Martins) was snapped up by Dolce & Gabbana and he's freelanced for Louis Vuitton. Now British-born, Australian-raised designer Richard Nicoll—whose sculptural spring collection was easily one of the best in London—has teamed up with his Aussie mates at Ksubi to create sunglasses inspired by early 20th-century futurism.
Lowdown: In three styles with black, white or clear plastic frames.
Price: $219
At: Ksubi in New York, 219c Mulberry Street, 212-334-4690
