Roger Federer has style — on and off the court.
He recently won his seventh Wimbledon Championship and did so wearing a vintage Rolex Daytona, circa 1981, his birth year.
The Daytona is a very distinctive mechanical chronograph that has been manufactured since the early 1960s. The current models are self-winding.
We have a wide range of newer models, including the two-tone version pictured here. All of the Daytonas are highly collectible and easily recognizable, even though most wearers don’t actually use the three chronographs.
As the name implies, it was designed for race car drivers. With Federer’s speed and right-handed one-handed backhand, it makes perfect sense.
A practical white handbag? We understand that you’re skeptical, but we are referring to the wonders of epi leather.
The Louis Vuitton textured hide was introduced in 1985. Known for the variety of bold colors, they’re a great alternative to the company’s monogram and damier — equally as recognizable without the overt brand logo.
Epi is dyed all the way through and extremely durable — designed for use in modern travel conditions. (It always comes back to its luxury travel heritage for LV.) That means that it wipes off with a simple polishing cloth or spot cleaned with white eraser and it stays shiny. It also doesn’t show wear as easily.
If you’re still not convinced that you can have a bag such as this ivory Pont Neuf GM, you can try red, yellow, black or butterscotch-y tan. A logo-free statement bag that is just loud enough.

As huge (okay, obsessive) fans of Hypebeast, we stumbled across their recent guide to buying pre-owned Rolex watches. Man or woman, we love an everyday classic watch such as this Rolex Submariner 14060.
Here’s what Hypebeast had to say:
“Featuring a large 40mm case, the no-date version boasts a simple face and is water resistant up to 300 meters. As you’d assume, the Submariner is intended to be a divers watch thanks to its extreme resilience against the elements. The Submariner watch face is arguably the most recognized and replicated watch designs in the world.”
Classic, sporty and authentic. We say, it’s time for a plunge.
What are you doing this summer? Weekend house in the Hamptons or Fire Island? Jetting off to Martha’s Vineyard? A weekend in Paris? Visiting a lake house?
Wherever you’re going, you’ll look good doing it with a Louis Vuitton Keepall. In luggage-appropriate sizes from 45 to 60, this is one of those items you’ll wonder how you ever lived without. It really does fit more than enough (swimsuit, towel, coverup, party dress, sandals, flip-flops) for a long weekend at the beach Sizes up to 60 will fit in an airplane’s overhead compartment.
You’ll be even more excited to travel — as if that’s even possible.
There’s nothing easier or more fun right now than changing your look with a statement bag.
One part portfolio, another part briefcase, Celine’s tri-color envelope bag has serious It potential. The subtle color blocking and shoulder strap make it feel very now, but also classic.
In addition to the obvious Phoebe Philo cool factor, it has another thing going for it — it’s just big enough for an iPad.
Meet your new go-to bag. The classic Bottega Veneta Veneta bag is big enough to be an everyday bag, but also chic and easily carried on your shoulder to go out to dinner.
Thanks to the leather-weaving technique, intrecciato, Bottega Venetta bags are instantly recognizable, yet also discreetly logo-free.
Founded in 1966, the Italian luxury goods house is best known for its leather goods — and for a reason. The masterful bags like this one are made from soft, luxurious leather and the woven designs give them just enough structure.
The Veneta strikes that perfect balance between being polished and looking like you’re not trying too hard. The definition of easy-going glamour.
Naming a watch after the slowest animal in the world? Cartier was not afraid.
In 1912, the watchmaker introduced the Tortue. Translation: Tortoise. This 18k gold Tortue really seems to play off of the creature’s sleek shell. It’s rounded elegance has really endured in the century since it debuted. (Insert your favorite “stands the test of time” cliche here.)
Initially created for women, it would make for a great Mother’s Day present for a mom who keeps everyone on time — stylishly.
It’s hard to deny — minibags are soooo cute. When you go with Chanel such as this little postcard-size bag, you’re clearly carrying a classic.
It has plenty of room for your essentials — lipstick, cell phone and keys. You can pop it in into a larger bag for day and then pull it out for an instant-evening look.
It’s a great way to pop a little bit of color, which in this bordeaux is practically a neutral, especially this season when anything goes with color. So you can wear it with bright coral or white or turquoise.
Clearly, size is all relative. Afterall, if something doesn’t fit in the 4.5 x 6-inch compartment, you probably don’t really need it.
With the weather warming, it’s time to deviate from trusty black into a more spring-ready palette.
This spring 2012 Chloe “Ethel” tote makes an ideal swap. In a warm shade of plum, the lambskin and goatskin bag can be carried by hand or slung over the shoulder an optional cross-body strap.
It will really pop against trenchcoats, summery whites and, if you insist, basic black.
Meet your new everyday it-bag.
While your Birkin sits in the closet, the Hermès Évelyne is a bag you can carry everyday. So says the New York Times Style section, which detailed the crossbody’s surging popularity.
According to the article, the bag was “designed in 1978 to carry grooming equipment” and named for Évelyne Bertrand, the head of the riding department. Practical from the get-go — and it only took 30-some years to have its moment.
We have two of them just in — in classic black Clemence leather and perfect-for-spring sky blue.
You can carry your iPad, wallet, a bottle of water and anything else while your hands are free to keep texting.
