C lassic lines, thoughtful construction, and vibrant hues mark L a f a y e t t e 1 4 8 's e n t r a n c e i n t o s w i m w e a r w i t h one- and two-piece swimsuits made from Econyl and crafted in Italy. The designed-for-women- by-women approach highlights L148's progressive approach to crafting sustainable and versatile womenswear. L148 Swim, at I n a world that clamors for a constant stream of the new, and where the perception of time grows increasingly smaller and shorter, we find that beautiful ideas can be undone by numbers and the constraints of production. Mergers, finances, and larger- than-life personalities must be fed. A global presence is a demanding master, indeed. In maintaining the largest luxury brand on Earth, the organization and machinery to make it run can overwhelm. In Louis Vuitton Manufactures (Assouline), Vuitton reminds that at its heart is an object created by skilled artisans and people who put love and care into what they do. The book celebrates the skill, craft, and artisanal work that define the objects that we see and puts them to paper through photographs and text in this 400-page homage. For readers who appreciate true craft and the celebration of its making, this book is a beautiful reminder of where it all comes from. CELEBRATING THE HANDS THAT CREATE TOM BEING TOM T om Ford is all about making you feel good about being you. It's amazing being Tom — and it can be even more amazing being you. The newest beauty collection consists of one of Tom Ford's iconic multidimensional, long wearing, and ultra-pigmented Eye Color Quads in the shade Belle de Pêche ($89), as well as two lip colors in Scarlet Rouge and Chérie ($58 each). Their orange packaging complements the new Bitter Peach scents, as well. The latest, Tom Ford Private Blend Private Rose Garden Collection, is an invitation to exotic locales. Inspired by Ford's private rose garden, three scents — Rose d'Amalfi, Rose de Chine, and Rose de Russie — merge heaven and Earth, transporting you to a new realm of physical and spiritual being. We'd say more, but the journey is best experienced for yourself, and we don't want to spoil the ending.
