Anti-Aging Products Sourced From France

French Beauty Products

Is it any surprise that top beauty brands are sourcing ingredients from France—the land of luxury—for their latest anti-aging products? Estée Lauder’s Re-Nutriv Ultimate Diamond Sculpting/Refinishing Dual Infusion ($360) contains extracts of rare black diamond truffles from the Périgord, along with refined 24-karat gold. Nutrient-rich elastic kelp harvested off the coast of Brittany is the hero ingredient in La Mer’s new Intensive Revitalizing Mask ($160). And Dior’s limited-edition serum, La Cure ($2,000), available in January, incorporates sap from the vines of Bordeaux’s renowned Château d’Yquem along with pure concentrate from the grapes of its 2013 vintage—quintessential France in a bottle.

New Shop Openings Fall 2014

It’s strange to think that we have to define the term shop as either brick and mortar or strictly online, but the rise of virtual shopping hasn’t stopped brands from opening physical storefronts. Here’s a listing of the latest shops to open around the world.

Frank Gehry's Fondation Louis Vuitton Opens in Paris

Fondation Louis Vuitton

The latest must-see attraction in Paris floats like a cloud of glass above the treetops of the Bois de Boulogne. The Fondation Louis Vuitton, devoted to contemporary arts and culture from France and beyond and supported by the luxury fashion conglomerate LVMH, opens on October 27. The building, designed by Frank Gehry, has galleries for its art collection (Daniel Buren; Rineke Dijkstra; Ellsworth Kelly), spaces for site-specific works, and an auditorium for music and dance.

Gehry, who was inspired by the greenhouses and pavilions of the Haussmann era, created a dozen curved glass canopies, comprising 3,600 panes. “I imagined Albertine and Proust playing there,” Gehry says, a nod to the neighboring Jardin d’Acclimatation’s past as a 19th-century children’s park. It’s that exuberance that makes the foundation one of the architect’s most magnificent designs since the Guggenheim Museum Bilbao.

Style Hunter: An Oversized Pashmina from Delhi

201409-hd-style-hunterjpg

On every journey, I am always on the lookout for stylish souvenirs, but what really catches my eye are pieces with "you can only get it there" bragging rights. These wearable mementos might turn up in bazaars, vintage stalls, artisan workshops, even late-night bars where ex-pat jewelers will trade the occasional ruby-studded bangle over cocktails.

While exploring Shahpur Jat, an urban village where many of Delhi's next-wave stylists (Nida Mahmood, Olivia Dar, Sonam Dubal) have recently set up shop, I walked into interior designer Punit Jasuja's Second Floor Studio, filled with boldly silkscreened pillows and other tempting accessories.
