Isabel Marant booties

Move over leopard print, it's time for python to take the spotlight and these Isabel Marant "Lisbo" boots made from embossed calfskin with a triangle heel is just the right mix of city boho-chic for the haute hipster. Pair with denim or a maxi skirt depending on your mood.

Charlotte Chesnais earrings

If you haven't heard of French jewellery designer Charlotte Chesnais, then you'd better get familiar. Having cut her teeth at Balenciaga before launching her eponymous jewellery label in 2015, she's fast becoming a cult favourite amongst street style stars and designers alike (she counts Sacai designer Chitose Abe as a friend and fan). Famous for her ergonomic shapes in gold and silver, these Saturn-inspired earrings in plated yellow gold will dress up any day look or add an elegant finish to an evening dress.

Marques Almeida boots

A carryover trend from last fall, the white bootie is still very much on point but it comes with a twist this season. Opt for the lace-up variety, almost military style, or ones with an architectural heel. These white and black Marques Almeida happen to have both, making it our top pick of the season.

Gabriela Hearst bag

We've all fallen in love with Gabriela Hearst's iconic Nina bag of previous seasons, but it's time to upgrade to her latest It-style–the Patsy box bag in lush nappa leather. Like a mini vault for your precious belongings, the stark shape is a sophisticated touch for any T-shirt and denim look.

Rejina Pyo bag

Another handbag style to note? The rectangular shape reminiscent of the powder bags of the '20s made popular by brands like Regina Pyo. Her boxy Olivia bag in white croc-effect leather was seen all over Fashion Month and now comes in a snake-embossed leather version lined with suede.

Gentle Monster sunglasses

Known for its high-profile collaborations with influencers (most recently with Yoyo Cao aka Yoyokulala), cult-favourite sunglasses brand Gentle Monster dropped another silhouette designed in collaboration with Alexander Wang, called the CEO Y2. The upturned frames in yellow, black and red with blue lenses are indeed fit for a boss or anyone looking to command a room in style.

Proenza Schouler mules 

Snake print not your cup of tea? The graphic tiger print is equally popular this fall. Take these Proenza Schouler mules for example. With a dainty kitten-heel and slightly pointed toe, treat it like any neutral and you'll find yourself easily pairing it with anything from jeans to leather leggings.

Chloé bucket bag

It seems there's hardly a season that goes by without Natacha Ramsay-Levi churning out a lust-worthy bag and this season, it's the Roy bucket bag with yellow horses embroidered on the soft Italian leather finished with gold hardware, a perfect pairing for those corduroy pants or mustard sweaters in your wardrobe.

Neous heels

The best way to elongate your figure through those winter layers? A pair of PVC "Chost" heels from Neous with barely-there straps and a soft leather toe hole for support. The contemporary brand rose to prominence for their comfortable and innovative styles, often a subtle spin on classics like boots with a ball heel or spliced PVC mules.

Gucci Rajah bag

Named from the Sanskrit word for prince or king, Gucci's latest lustworthy bag features a tiger head motifc with colored enamel details and crystals. The design was inspired by a brooch by jewellery designer Hattie Carnegie in the ' 40s who counted singer Doris Day as a fan, and the flapbag itself is in a glossy green python leather made in a classic envelope silhouette to suit your every day needs.
