Including adaptive intimates from Victoria’s Secret.
The Miss Dior handbag is here
Nowadays when you hear the words Miss Dior, the beloved fragrance comes to mind. Well, creative director Maria Grazia Chiuri has just introduced a purse by the same name that’s destined to become a fan favourite as well.
Boasting signature Dior quilting, Miss Dior has the poise of its big sister Lady Dior. Its size? Suitable for a no-nonsense night out (read: a wallet, phone and lipstick). As for the finer details, this chic top handle bag comes with a hideaway gold chain for crossbody alternatives and is available in four colourways — pink, yellow, white and black.
Van Cleef & Arpels releases the Fleurettes in rose gold
Let’s do some creative Christmas-themed girl math. Santa’s reindeer receive some carrots (courtesy of you) in exchange for some carats (courtesy of “Santa.”) They’re basically free.
Perfectly timed with the approaching holidays, Van Cleef & Arpels has launched new additions to the Fleurette Collection, including a necklace, pendant, pair of stud earrings and ring, all in rose gold. A slight departure from the cult-favourite Alhambra, this floral motif inlaid with tiny diamonds will subtly glimmer amidst Champagne bubbles and twinkling party lights come party season.
Victoria’s Secret drops accessible intimates
Though long overdue, brands are starting to correct their sometimes exclusionary tendencies. Most recently, Victoria’s Secret and Pink have designed (alongside approximately 200 disabled women) adaptive intimates to make their products more accessible. From sensory-friendly fabrics to magnetic closures, this new line of intimates by a fashion industry giant marks a big shift in the accessibility market.
Model Bri Scalesse is the face of this campaign, and shares that this milestone “is an ode to my younger self who never saw a body like hers represented by an intimate apparel brand.”
Birks unveils a zodiac collection
There is a healthy roster of jewellery brands offering zodiac paraphernalia, but none are doing it like Birks. The label just introduced its new zodiac necklaces — available in 18 karat yellow gold and a dazzling sterling silver — that have been expertly crafted to the highest of quality.
And they’re visually stunning, too. On one side of the medallion, a picture of the zodiac’s symbol pops out from the metal, while on the reverse, the sign’s associated glyph rests, making for a versatile, two-in-one accessory.

Vitaly launches new eyewear
The days may be getting shorter but that doesn’t mean our beloved sunglasses have to get tucked away. Especially when they’re as fashion forward as Vitaly’s new releases.

What’s more, the Toronto-bred label, which was just named Accessories Designer of the Year at this year’s CAFAs, focuses on genderless designs welcoming all to take part in the fun.
