Chic Picks for the Summer Shopping

By Pardhasaradhi Gonuguntla

From a couture camera to a fresh new fragrance, celebrate a stylish summer with the latest luxe buys.

1 Tom Ford’s latest fragrance launch, Neroli Portofino Eau Fraiche Body Splash, offers a lighter take on the brand’s best-selling eau de parfum that feels right at home as the mercury rises. Just like the original, it’s inspired by the Italian Riviera—with refreshing notes of citrus, bergamot and amber—for a quick jaunt to the Mediterranean, no matter where your summer travels take you ($125).

2 Designer Carla Forte and jeweler Mario Buccellati II turn everyday objects—from champagne flutes to chandeliers—into wearable works of art with Prediletto, a collection of painstakingly detailed baubles handcrafted in Italy. In 18K gold, amethyst and diamonds, this charming gift box pendant is too pretty for packaging ($20,500).

3 Capturing all your summer vacation highlights is a snap with the new Leica M9-P Edition Hermès—Série Limitée Jean-Louis Dumas. A collaboration between the timeless Parisian house and the tech-savvy German manufacturer, the limited-edition camera (just 100 will be produced) features a unique design by automotive expert Walter de’Silva and a gorgeous calfskin leather case you’ll actually want to carry ($50,000).

4 Stuart Weitzman’s stunning shoes have walked many a red carpet over the last 25 years, but now the enterprising designer is upping the ante with an ultra-exclusive new line of accessories, dubbed SW1. Weitzman partnered with Alvaro Gonzalez (formerly of Jimmy Choo) to produce elegant shoes, boots and bags in exotic skins and sexy, sculptural designs (leopard print pony hair booties, $595).

5 Incorporate a touch of island living into your home year-round with this stunning one-of-a-kind candelabra by Passman. Hand-carved from the Grand Cayman-based design house’s limited reserve of rare black coral and set in platinum, it’s a must-sea ($95,000).

6 Crafted entirely by hand in knife maker Matt William Conable’s Oregon-based workshop—and taking an average of 14 months each to complete—William Henry Studio’s creations go above and beyond your boyhood Swiss army knife. The artisanal accessory brand paired with Swarovski Gems to produce this limited-edition pocketknife set with vibrantly colored stones ($6,500).
