Meet the newest way to add luxe to your library. French fashion house Louis Vuitton is releasing a $130 limited edition fashion photography book this fall.

According to WWD, Louis Vuitton Fashion Photography will feature world-renowned fashion photographers such as Mert Alas and Marcus Piggot, Helmut Newton, and Annie Leibovitz. Inside you’ll find 200 iconic Louis Vuitton images, spanning everything from last month’s Vogue feature to an ad from 1954. The title will be available in both French and English, and to top it off, readers can choose from three different recognizable LV covers from Patrick Demarchelier, Craig McDean, or Bert Stern.

If you need me, I’ll be dusting. Where? One spot on my bookshelf and another for my future Monogram Vernis.

Nope, don’t step out in your shapewear just yet. SPANX® just announced that it’ll be moving on to bigger and skinnier things: jeans. Sara Blakely, the brains behind the billion-dollar operation, reported to WWD that the denim line will launch in July. Styles will feature slimming details such as a wide waistband, side zippers, and five pockets. But don’t worry, whether you’re a boot-cut or boyfriend-jeans fan, the $148 pairs are said to be available in every silhouette you can think of.

Does this mean I can ditch the Jillian Michaels DVD for good? Probably not. But let’s just say I’ll be snagging a pair of these just so I can call them my actually skinny skinny jeans. (Watch out, Bieber.)

Charlotte Olympia designer Charlotte Dellal is beloved for her whimsical shoes (ice cream cone and zodiac sign heels, anyone?), but since they’re just a touch too quirky for the corporate world, she’s creating two brand-new lines of work-appropriate shoes and handbags, according to WWD. What can you expect? Simple leather bags, boardroom-ready pointed-toe pumps, and stacked heels.

The best part? In true Charlotte Olympia fashion, there will be a clever twist in the form of briefcase-shaped shoe boxes, complete with a pair of pantyhose.
