Alessandro Gualtieri is a fragrance alum of the likes of Valentino and Helmut Lang–so it’s about time the scent guru launched his own sweet-smelling stuff. The Nasomatto Project, as it’s called, is comprised of a handful of scents with descriptions as intriguing as those wood-topped bottles: “Narcotic Venus for the addictive intensity of female sexuality, Absinth to stimulate irresponsible behavior, Silver Musk to evoke superhuman magnetism, Hindu Grass is about universal peace and love, and Black Afgano is temporary bliss.” : Look at these items , so indulge to have even we don't smell anythings yet.

One of the most fascinating exhibits up anywhere right now is Cartier Collection show currently on view at the Forbidden City in Beijing. The beautiful Cartier Treasures – King of Jewelers to Kings is a compilation of 350 pieces from the Cartier Collection from China and beyond. Some of the pieces are over 150 years old.
Gap creative director Patrick Robinson took a push-pull approach for the global debut of his Spring 2010 collection yesterday in Tokyo, offering a mixed-up pastoral look set against this high-tech metropolis. “In summer you want to see something green. You want to escape,” Robinson explained during the presentation. “So I just made fun of that. I made these urban gardeners.” Since Robinson took the reins in 2007, Gap’s Spring show has hopped around on a world tour that’s made its way to Tokyo via New York two years ago and London last season. On each stop, the designer tries to reflect a sense of place.
For the Tokyo show, staged in the hip Omotesando district, he described the collection as having an urban eclectic DIY element. The look here revolved around three main stories: the virginal, featuring loads of pale denim paired with wispy vintage-inspired broderie anglaise pieces; the ultra-layered gardener, consisting of mismatched florals and washed out plaids over khakis; and finally, the folkster, with flowing scarves, khaki jackets, and patchworked denim. Nude and navy platform espadrilles and floral-accented deck shoes by Pierre Hardy kept all three looks grounded. “For Fall this will totally change. Everyone goes back to work,” Robinson remarked. But oh, to keep making daisy chains forever.

When we ( WWD )chatted with François Nars last spring after his heralded return to the world of backstage beauty, he was just as excited to talk to us about cameras as concealers. The face painter, who moonlights as a shutterbug, has published two different photography books and will be debuting his third effort next month. “It’s the same approach,” Nars says of his favorite mediums. “When you make up someone you want them to feel good and beautiful. With photography, it’s the same: Make the light beautiful, have fun.” 15×15, as his new tome is called, will be available for 30 days only when it bows in mid-November, and there’s a countdown to its release currently in progress at www.15×15project.com. The celebrity portraits in the new book channel iconic images, people, and emotions while giving some face time (or nail time, as the case may be) to a classic Nars product. That would be Nars Dovima lacquer on Marc Jacobs, who is re-enacting a sixties-era Richard Avedon photo above. Other friends of the brand, including Isabella Rossellini, Naomi Campbell, Daphne Guinness, and Olivier Theyskens, also make cameos. Something to add to your holiday wish list, for sure.
The Olsens are adding eyewear to their fashion repertoire, with plans to launch a collection for The Row this spring. The shades come in four classic shapes (oversize? check) and will retail from $325 to $390. There’s a joke in here about seeing double, but we’ll spare you.

Three Apples is SANRIO’s three-week long festival celebrating all things Hello Kitty from October 23rd to November 15th at Royal/T in Culver City, California.

The glass slipper has truly made a comeback! Champagne manufacturer Piper Heidsieck has teamed up with Christian Louboutin to fuse two of our favorite indulgences: Louboutins and bubby.

The box set is available at Colette beginning October 26th.
Karl Lagerfeld and Lily Allen have joined forces to launch the Coco Cocoon Collection, Chanel’s new line of reversible handbags and totes that can be turned inside out to reveal the signature quilted Chanel pattern. Sharp-tongued Allen is the charming face of the campaign, and the line caters to the gorgeous jet-setter, including stunning and super-practical travel bags. We love the instant transformation these bags offer…like a caterpillar emerging a monarch!

The Steven Meisel and Kristen McMenamy reunion was destined to be impressive but the end result is even more dynamic than we expected. With her intense gaze and shock of long silver hair Kristen looks as edgy today as she did at the start of her career. Standing the test of time is a feat but retaining the coveted cool factor for close to two decades is impressive in and of itself. Dressed in only the most dramatic designers, Kristen truly looks like the legend she is.

A sad e-mail began circulating late last week announcing that 36-year-old designer Tara Subkoff has been diagnosed with a benign brain tumor. If not operated on, the tumor will be fatal in about two years. Tara, who launched label Imitation of Christ, will probably have the operation in August and recovery could take up to a year. Tara won't be able to work while she recovers, so her friends have banded together to organize an art benefit to help cover the remaining costs of the operation (eleven specialists are involved owing to the delicate nature of the tumor) and care needed afterward. They are looking for donations of artwork to be sold in a silent auction on Wednesday, July 15. The lot will include 200 pieces of Imitation of Christ couture from Tara's personal collection. Alternatively, you can just donate cash. Our hearts and thoughts are with Tara and her loved ones in this difficult time. See the full e-mail with detailed information on how you can donate after the jump.

Another white shirt for your consideration: this one from Jil Sander's newest project, a forthcoming Uniqlo line, +J. (It will debut this fall at Uniqlo locations worldwide and online.) Judging from the photo, the designer hasn't strayed far from her trademark austerity. More styles and colors as they're released, but the teaser shot in white feels right for Sander. Raf Simons, who's currently helming the designer's namesake line in Milan, must think so, too. His most recent show for the label went heavy on the pales.

Strange bedfellows can make for great style. They can also just make things…strange. We'll leave it to you to decide which camp this merger of flash drive and sunglasses falls into. Arriving from ck Calvin Klein this fall, the glasses feature a detachable arm that reveals a 4GB USB port, ready to store music, photos, or data. One thing's for sure: Italo Zucchelli isn't the only guy at Team Calvin with a taste for supermodern shades.
