RISD's 'Cocktail Culture' offers an intoxicating history of 20th-century fashion

Across the country, on January 16, 1920, citizens drank up at liquor "wakes" before the 18th Amendment, ratified a year before, went into effect at midnight, banning the manufacture, sale, and transportation of "intoxicating liquors."

ANNA CHESHIRE LEVITAN
WRITER/EDITOR/PRODUCER
We spotted her at
the WANT IT! party, presented by Saks Fifth Avenue and the Esplanade Association.
She caught our eye because looked like she just came from chic beachside lunch.
She looked perfectly proportioned in a Tibi pink paisley shirt (Anna grew up with Tibi designer Amy Wallin Smilovic on St. Simons Island, Georgia), YaYa high-waisted bell bottoms, Prada shoes, and a Free People bag.
She can’t live without spring coats, particularly a black-andwhite houndstooth coat and a bright pink coat with gold stitching.
Her must-stop shops: Saks and Calypso

Caged In

Caged In


A fresher, more accessible take on the gladiator style that’s been trotting around the past few seasons, the caged shoe has far more sex appeal than its buckled-up predecessor. The caged shoe can create a tougher image than the traditional springtime strappy shoe, and yet still remain feminine. Taking cues from YSL — who showed the mother of all caged shoes, featuring a caged heel (already knocked off by BeBe) — and Stella McCartney, caged shoes run the spectrum from bondage chic to skeletal versions of your favorite pair of peep toes.

Deck The Malls


 

 

A holiday-shopping survival kit

We consider a great lip gloss essential any day of the week, but holiday shopping calls for something a bit more protective. Slather lips with Biomimetic Perfect Lip Honey ($19), a no-frills balm by REN Skincare that’s formulated with a biomimetic complex — sounds fancy, makes you pretty — and, for karma points, is environmentally sound. Thick without being sticky (for both protection and kissability), and with a hint of shine (for style), the gloss is available online at www.renskincare.com.
