A CHANEL BAG an investment is essential in this economy. FRINGED BOOTS short suede styles were spotted everywhere. LATEX LEGGINGS or in some cases more daring python skin or leather versions. FUR VESTS because it's autumn-winter you know... YSL or ALAIA SHOES we're talking the six-inch-plus styles. A BLACK BLAZER especially with strong shoulders, a la Margiela. A LEATHER JACKET either a draped Rick Owens style or cool biker jacket.
