How to shop in Style

CHANEL announced the creation of the above urban personal transporter, which seems to have more fun than a bike and it looks as crazy as rollerblades.The rich-rider drives it by leaning in the direction he or she wants to go at speeds of nearly 20kph. With a range of 20km and an adaptation of the famous CHANEL 2.55, shopping couldn't be more glamorous.

Fashionista Spotlight : Genevieve Jones

Genevieve Jones has been dubbed the Holly Golightly of our times. The willowy, almond-eyed It Girl who swapped Baton Rouge for Bungalow 8 in the early ’00s now counts Julia Restoin Roitfeld, Anouck Lepere, and Sean Lennon and as BFFs, and sits front row at Zac Posen, Marc Jacobs, and Proenza Schouler. She is photographed more than most movie starlets, and dresses better too. Which is why her eponymous jewelry line has been so hotly anticipated. Inspired by her travels and handcrafted in Thailand, Genevieve Jones Collection is a kaleidoscopic, organic line of bracelets shaped like snake vertebrae, shell rings dipped in 18-karat gold, and the—now ubiquitous—diamond-studded safety pin earrings. Here, Ms. Jones tells it like It is.

Designer Umit Benan

After Umit Benan moved from New York to Milan, he found, to his surprise, that he was harassed constantly by the authorities, both legal and sartorial. The cops mistook him for a criminal, repeatedly barring him from entering his own apartment complex, while a well-known boutique even forbade him from trying on a shirt before buying it. The reason? Evidently, his beard. Forced to adapt, he shaved, and found that the ill will immediately dissipated. Then, inspired in part by his travails, Benan created an eponymous line of menswear that is (like his face once was) proudly rough on the outside. The suits, shirting, knits, and outerwear—available this fall—are made from (cashmere, Sea Island cotton) (The shirts are produced by Lorenzini.) But Benan hides all this on the inside: A rough-looking sport coat, for instance, is really just an inverted cashmere houndstooth check, so the world sees the fabric's underbelly, while the handsome fabric is for your eyes only. (His motto is, "What you see is not what you get.") The results are both luxurious and suitably discreet. And as you can see from his lookbook, Benan got the last laugh: Not only does his model sport a healthy patch of facial scruff, he himself grew back his beard.

YSL/ Pierre Bergé Auction

One of the most anticipated events on the 2009 auction calendar is undoubtedly the Yves Saint Laurent / Pierre Bergé sale, slated for Christie's in February. The private collection, amassed by the legendary fashion designer and his partner over the last fifty years, is exceptional as much for its quality and sheer size – more than 700 eclectic works in total, estimated at well over €200 million – as for its veiled exclusivity, unseen for decades by anyone outside the pair's private circle.

Until now that is. Housed in Saint Laurent's sumptuous Paris apartment above the rue de Babylone, we've been allowed a peek inside to preview the works in their original setting and get a rare glimpse inside the late designer's home.

Highlights include paintings by Picasso, Goya, Léger, Matisse and an iconic geometric composition by Mondrian (estimated at €7 - 9m), inspiration behind the eponymous YSL dress; rare art deco objects (including a pair of stools by Miklos estimated at €2 - 3m), sculptures, 18th and 19th century European furniture, and antiquities.
