If I were a woman and had to think carefully about the designer items upon which to bestow my limited fashionable income (the horror!), I'd likely be investing in things like this sleek, smart, statement pant from Riccardo Tisci's homerun pre-fall collection for Givenchy. It's surely at least $1,000, but it feels both new and basic.
And everyone is just dying for the boot, of course. Model Caroline Trentini.
