To celebrate Yoox.com's recent launch in China, the retailer has tapped Naomi Campbell and five major designers — 3.1 Phillip Lim, Dolce & Gabbana, Masha Ma, Moschino, and Qiu Hao — to create an exclusive line of graphic, unisex tees. Drawing inspiration from the tradition and ambiance of China, each t-shirt also embodies its respective designers individual aesthetic; Phillip Lim's, for example, is emblazoned with the word "Rogue" in a floral motif reminiscent of his Spring 2013 collection, while Moschino's carries the brand's signature red heart and the word "MOSCHINA." Proceeds from the sale of each $35 shirt will go to Fashion For Relief, Campbell's not-for-profit organization that supports humanitarian causes. Click through for an up close look at each piece — as modeled by Campbell herself — available now on Yoox.com.
Golden finishes have made a major comeback on the runway with designers like Prabal Gurung, Naeem Khan, and Monique Lhuillier showing refreshing iterations — from decadent sequined gowns to modern shifts — on their Fall runways. And with the upcoming holiday party season on its way, we can't think of a better time to jump on this shimmery trend. The key to getting this look right? Since gold is already such a statement color on its own, opt for neutral accompaniments, minimal accessories like black sandals, and a simple gold cuff to finish off your look. And yes, you can wear gold during the day; just swap out your usual pair of black trousers with a gold jacquard crop pants and a blazer for an office look, or take over the city at night in a shimmery gold dress.

The (style) doctor is in, and suffice it to say, the superstructured, boxy bag known predominantly for holding medical accoutrements, has become a top contender for this season's must-have bag silhouette. Thanks to Prada's whimsically retro Fall '12 accessories, we're currently experiencing a newfound disposition for this particular classic shape, albeit reincarnated with a fresh batch of sleek patent finishes (or conversely, vintage-inspired textures), modernist lines, and some pretty cool prints. Perhaps, most obviously, we love that the resurgence of the fashionable doctor bag means we'll have more than enough room to store our wallet, phone, and charger. It's a sensible accessory choice with an undeniably chic twist, and as far as throwback trends go, this is one worth investing in. Doctor's orders.

When we saw Solange Knowles's expert way of wearing gold and silver together, we instantly recognized a huge holiday trend. The style setter stepped out for the 2012 Angel Ball recently in a stunning gold and silver gown by Badgley Mischka, which she paired with a sweep of red-orange lipstick. The dress, with its gorgeous color palette and dangerously low v-neck, played perfectly with Solange's skin tone and set in motion a trend that we knew we had to copy for party season. Whatever your grandma told you about mixing metals back in the day is no longer applicable — there really are no rules when it comes to pairing silver and gold, and experimentation is key. We're helping you get started by putting together three distinct ways to mix metals for your upcoming holiday fetes. Click through to see and shop them now.

Psst — we're letting you in on a little secret. L.L.Bean has the most amazing cable-knit sweater in the little boys' section. Yes, you heard right; the little boys' section. Truth be told, I found this gem two years ago when I was on the hunt for the perfect shrunken sweater, only to be seriously disappointed when the retailer didn't bring it back last year. Alas, all of my vigilant checking — and scouring — has paid off this season, because L.L.Bean has brought the sweater back in three colors: ivory, navy, and gray. The warm cotton/acrylic blend means it's super cozy (and not itchy) and it's washer-machine friendly. At $40 a pop, you can stock up on all three colors. Believe us: you won't regret it.
