Meticulously crafted at the house's atelier in Italy, each bag receives more than 18,000 stitches during the quilting process to create the subtle geometric weave of cannage.

Dior Caro, from $3,800, at the Dior boutique, A NEW ICON TEEN KNIGHT POEM F r o m t h e C e l i n e equestrian flag bearers to the torched finale, this exposition is a full fashion fantasy g ro u n d e d b y t h e epitome of French Renaissance — the Château de Chambord. Much like the backdrop's mix of architecture that straddles French medieval and classic Renaissance, Celine c r e a t i v e d i r e c t o r Hedi Slimane brings together both punk and romance in a mix of studded leather, heavy knits, capes, fur boots, and creepers. Though appearing Old World, he's actually holding up a mirror to present-day society — the shedding of society labels and trends. You can be both the knight and the prince. Majestic and punk. Creating the perfect heartthrob of a man (with style, no less) is the real power of Slimane. The initially jarring masterpiece melds jackets and ruffled collars with beautiful men donning delicate earrings, thick-chained necklaces, and studded beanies. Utter perfection. Did you catch the fully studded lapel on that tailored jacket? Keeping this show on replay is my new obsession. I want every single piece in this collection. So should you. We are in a new renaissance. Doug Voisin Celine 2021 Celine 2021 Alexander McQueen 42
