Want This: A Fake Diamond That’s Real

Plus Agent Provocateur’s tempting half-off sale, and a new destination for eco-friendly totes



    Want This: A Fake Diamond That’s Real
    Melanie Favreau
    Melanie Favreau's great statement on gemstone jewelry.

    CUT: We love Montrealer Melanie Favreau’s reimagined dog-tag necklaces: Diamond shapes (that are far from being made of diamonds) proclaim “This is fake. I am not.” Isn't that cooler, somehow? $40 Via her Etsy shop.

    RISQUE: How we love the naughty promise of Agent Provocateur’s SoHo store: The clingerie purveyor always offers more whimsy that your average lace-hawker. The aale – starting 7/2 – gives you 50 percent off undies, including bras and bodysuits. 133 Mercer Street at Prince Street; 212-965-0229.

    GREENED OUT: Alison McGowan is the woman behind the genius eco handbags under the Teich label. Head to her new East Village outpost of the same name for her own earth-friendly designs, as well as those from a host of other names like Ryann and Marissa Alperin. 84 East 7th Street at First Avenue; 212-260-0676.
