Maybe it's the feeling of secrets and lies sprinkled on our political landscape, but we've noticed some Spy Chic in the recent fall collections. Besides the slick black trenches from YSL - more pointed, more pointy, and armed with enough pockets to conceal several handguns - there are oil slick leggings (Balenciaga! Cheap Monday!), gloves edged in sharp metal (Burberry gauntlets), and the sunglasses so dark and wrapped, they could protect you from eclipses (thanks, Dolce). But there's a fun side to Spy Chic too - the heels with knifed edges we saw at Prada. The leather mask bracelets from Kiki de Montparnasse. And the Barbarella feel of Alice + Olivia and Moschino. The perilous fun at Gareth Pugh is great, too. Maybe that's why we're so into this story from Fab Sugar, on Charlie's Angels fashion. Okay, the images are a little more Victoria's Secret than Versace, but it's still awfully fun to wonder what you can wear when living dangerously.
