Here and Now: We’re on a Bit of a Roll
PERFECTLY PARISIENNE CHIC
Isabel Marant’s Etoile line and shoes have been such a hit on 5F we’re introducing her main ready-to-wear collection this season. The designer who epitomizes chic Parisienne attitude is beloved for creating ultimately wearable and functional clothes that are spirited and lively. Think perfection with panache.

JEWELLERY NOT JEWELRY
In London, they spell jewelry with an extra l and e. Maybe these stand for luxurious and exquisite. Those are two signal qualities of the creations of former Boucheron creative director Solange Azagury-Partridge, whose London shop has been a magnet for the world’s most astute collectors since 1995. Now we’re the New York magnet.

FOR THE EYES WHO HAVE EVERYTHING
We aren’t the only fashion leader celebrating an anniversary. Oliver Peoples is celebrating their 25th with a limited edition eyewear trunk, an elegant tote for traveling with glasses or storing them at home. Made in collaboration with the renowned Guichard, it is crafted from the finest pebble grain leather.

NEW SHOES NEWS
We’ve got a new hotspot for contemporary shoes on 5F. Sophia Webster was a star fashion student when she apprenticed to Nicholas Kirkwood, the young shoemaker star in London’s fashion firmament. Recognizing a kindred spirit Kirkwood promised his design assistant that he would help launch her own collection in two years. Well, time’s up and here is an astoundingly fresh collection of colorful and sculptural shoes destined to floor avant-fashionistas. Joining in the fun is the Theysken’s Theory Resort shoe collection, with re-imagined classics from pumps to combat boots.

THE RAREST SCENT
He’s the fourth generation of the family that founded Myrurgia, one of the world’s most eminent perfumers, and he has spent a lifetime studying the art and science of scent with the masters. He has created dozens of fragrances for various brands but now he has his own line and a workshop on the Mediterranean where he answers to no one, nothing but his own imagination. His rare, artisanal fragrances are ours alone.
