Junya Watanabe Man Comme Des Garçons' multipurpose anorak. Plus, down pillows by Dermond Peterson Design, Lacoste swimwear, pretty teabags start a revolution...


The Best Bet
Spring in New York means predictably unpredictable weather: chilly in the morning, sunny by noon, rain just in time for the evening commute. If you can’t bear carrying or, even worse, tying on a jacket when the temperature changes, Junya Watanabe Man Comme des Garçons’ new multipurpose anoraks may be the solution. Available in different styles, and in solids and patterns, they fold down to become vertical or horizontal messenger-style bags with several pockets on the outside (there’s no space inside) and an adjustable strap for slinging over your shoulder when the humidity level rockets ($930 to $1,500 at Comme des Garçons; 212-604-9200).
