A Roger Vivier clutch sealed with a kiss for Valentine's Day.

By Jessica Michault

Valentine's Day is just around the corner and Bal Harbour Shops wants to help you share the love. Be it pampering that special someone in your life or finally taking the time to treat yourself to something special.

There is just something so feminine and playful about the lingering trace of a red lipstick kiss. Roger Vivier picked up on that charming image by introducing it onto some of its most popular accessories. Bruno Frisoni, the brand’s creative director, looked to the house’s archives to for inspiration and gave the idea a fresh new attitude by branding the label’s iconic sandals as well as its Gommettes ballet flats, a clutch and wallet with a luscious vestige of ruby lips.


“Cat got your tongue,” is probably the phrase any woman wearing pieces from the capsule collaboration between Agent Provocateur and Charlotte Olympia will say when the love of her life gets a gander at her in this feline inspired lingerie. From the animal print silk teddy to the kitten faced underwear, this is a lineup that says meow. And of course, all of the pieces come with Charlotte Olympia footwear that will make any woman who owns a pair purr with delight.


At Salvatore Ferragamo gift giving comes in the form of a sweet pair of low-heeled sandals. This lighthearted footwear features a multicolored dot motif on and wood grain background and finishes of with three sweet gold metal bows at the back. It’s going to be impossible for any woman to keep a smile offer her face once she gets a look at this endearing design.


The trend of wearing lingerie as outerwear is very big in fashion right now and its only being reinforced by brand like La Perla which are coming up with nightgowns, camisoles and underwear so beautiful they deserve to see the light of day. This makes pretty much any piece from the latest collection a smart bet for Valentine’s Day. But if we had to choose just one, it would be the Fressia halter-top nightgown, which has a beautiful lace back.


The delightfully quirky French fashion designer Olympia Le-Tan has teamed up with Diptyque for the perfect Valentine’s Day gift that will make any woman melt with joy. Le-Tan created a scented candle for the house that tries to capture unique aroma of a lady’s bag. The Rosaviola candle, in a bubble gum pink shade, is an alluring fragrance that mixes the predominant scent of rose with just a hint of lipstick and a soupçon of leather. The designer even sealed the scent with a pert little red-lipped kiss planted on the packaging.


The new Harry Winston Midnight Diamond Stalactites Automatic timepiece will surly make the heart skip a beat of any woman lucky enough to get it on Valentine’s Day. The 36mm watch has a breathtaking white mother of pearl dial that features a shimmering cascade of diamonds, pink sapphires and rubies trickling down it’s face. The back of the watch is just as beautiful thanks to the open case back and skeletonized 18k rose gold oscillating weight. All of it contained in a 18 k white gold case that is festooned with 84 brilliant-cut diamonds and finished off with a white satin strap.


Tory Burch has quite a lot of love-inspired pieces that hone in on the colors of the day—pink and red—that are sure to make great gifts options for this important holiday. Top on the list is the Robinson small zip tote bag in a blush pink, which a wise man  would fill up with other goodies from Burch like a set of Gemini Link jewelry or the heart-adorned wallet, coin case and iPhone cover.


For those up close and personal Valentine’s Day encounters, Gee Beauty has quite a stylish collection of scents, body oils and body creams to choose from. Top on our list is the 24 carat gold body soufflé. A body cream designed to make the woman using it feel like a million dollars. And any man looking for a chic scent for his lady should pick up one of iconic perfumer Serge Lutens fragrances.


The tasteful mélange of a red gold band and the rich red color of a square cabochon garnet from Pomellato’s M’ama non m’ama collection is a timeless one. Considering how well this collection matches up with some of the brand’s other beautiful colored gemstones, this will be a gift that could keep on giving.


Stella McCartney takes a light-hearted approach to Valentine’s Day this year. Her Poppy Snoozing sleepwear set, featuring the lips and hearts print she also used in her ready-to-wear collection, suggests a cozy night spent relaxing at home rather then getting all dressed up to go out. But that is not to say this set can’t survive in daylight. The tailored silk crepe de chine top could easily function as a shirt for work in a style conscious office.
