With her Spring 2007 show Thursday at New York Fashion Week, Catherine Malandrino proved that big, puffy tops, billowy sleeves, and gathered bubble skirts can still be sexy. The secret? Plunging necklines and suggestive geometric cutouts adorning slim-fitting dresses and skirts. The sassy French designer—who was previously the head designer at Diane Von Furstenberg—typically excels in everyday urban attire but, like many other shows this week, this one focused mainly on dresses and skirts.

I love the look of vintage luggage, but I could do without the musty smell. That's why I want the new Samsonite Black Label Vintage Collection for my next trip. (To see my other picks for great luggage, click here.) The Vintage line harkens back to the era of glamorous train travel, with satin lining and rivet and buckles details. The collection also features some surprising shapes, like romantic round "beauty cases" with makeup mirrors and wheeled 32-inch trunks. The bags come in cool retro color palettes, like pink and muted teal with red leather accents, as well as in neutral tones. Here are some of the offerings from the line.
Vintage 22-inch Hardside Spinner Upright Suitcase, $550, available here.
