Bag Ladies
A Sigerson Morrison shoe addict is easy to spot, strutting around in quirky but super-cool-looking shoes. Now aficionados will find themselves craving these covetable bags as well. The company's first bags collection—shown here, a sheened leather tote bag with removable sunglasses case ($615) and corduroy day tote ($446)—ranges from simple handbags to luggage ($207 to $1,109). Be careful. It starts with shoes and bags; next thing you know, you're into harder fashion.

Prêt-a-Piper
Two's company, three's a crowd, but four is a party waiting to happen. At least that's what the people at Piper-Heidsieck Champagne seem to think. They've just come out with a four-pack of their ultrapopular pony (187 ml) bottles. Clad in a lipstick-red see-through tote, the bottles come with matching black straws. Break 'em out just to turn a back-deck weekend get-together into a fabulous fashionista party ($40).

Take Note
Smythson of Bond Street's cherry-red leather Fashion Diary has a major cult following among New Yorkers. To celebrate the opening of the legendary British company's first North American store, on 57th Street, Smythson, known for decades as a supplier of stationery and leather goods to royalty, has created New York Notes, a leather-bound notebook where you can record your own restaurant, hotel, museum, and, of course, shopping highlights. In pale blue ($150) or black leather ($120) with blue-lined featherweight paper—edged in silver, of course.

Status Stylus
Admit it, you got that Palm Pilot to look cool. But now everyone you know has one, too. So you added a deluxe leather case for your PDA. Whoops, everyone just got that nifty item, too. This fall, you can up the ante with Montblanc's new Palm stylus (made for Palm V and VII models), which comes in stainless steel or gold plate, both with that iconic "snowcap" logo ($45). That should keep your co-workers drooling—at least till next year.

Wrap Star
Fashion is all about choices—but why should you have to limit yourself? The folks at Baume & Mercier agree, and that's why they've got the New Linea line. First, choose a watch face (plain or diamond bezel), then a wraparound band from a selection of twelve, including leathers and a very businesslike cashmere pinstripe (shown). The watch—$995 for plain stainless bezel and $3,600 with diamonds—comes with two bands. Each season, new bands ($95) are introduced just so you won't have to settle for last year's look.
