REALLY, RALPH?
Just when we thought Ralph Lauren couldn’t get any more luxe, his Purple Label continues to dazzle. At Via San Barnaba (the company’s palatial palazzo), the spring collection unveiling showed what to expect in fall 2018, and it looks like it’s a winner by a mile.

I’ll HAVE ANOTHER BELT
The belt may be the unsung hero of your wardrobe, but just because it’s practical doesn’t mean it needs to look utilitarian. Refresh and mix up your style with a new addition, like this Tom Ford accessory that’s both sleek and bold. $690. (Photo and availability at Tom Ford)
MORE MODERN
Don Draper rides again. MAKING L.A. MODERN: Craig Ellwood—Myth, Man, Designer, edited by Michael Boyd, is a profile of the visionary architect Ellwood and his legacy in mid-century modernism. The tome celebrates and explores the sexy glamour of Ellwood’s work and life and the iconic projects that he created in Southern California during the 1950s and 60s. At RizzoliUSA.com
