What the Fashion Set Wants: Insider Wish Lists, Part One

What the Fashion Set Wants“A year off and a boat trip around the world”

To celebrate the holidays in style, we asked our favorite fashion insider friends to share the one thing that tops their wish lists this season. From the luxury of time (does a full year off sound good to you?) to a covetable cold-weather staple (how about the season’s coolest jacket?), check out what fashion’s most in-the-know style-setters are pining for this time of year. And just like the rest of us, some had a hard time narrowing it down to just one. Just ask any of these tastemakers: You’ve got to dream big to win big!

Keren Craig: A special favorite of mine and one-half of Marchesa, she makes donning confections of feathers and ornate embroidery feel like it should be something we do each and every day.
