Our September Must Haves
If you’re going to wear a fanny pack—or, as they call it, a “leather belt bag”—it may as well be Gucci. The bold, lipstick-red leather makes it all the more desirable. $1,050.

Chantilly Blue in Kennett Square.
After nine years in its old Kennett Square locale, Chantilly Blue has moved across the street. “We simply needed a refresh—a new look,” says owner Lisa Baldwin. Best known for her wide variety of denim and her ability to find the perfect fitting jeans for every body type, Baldwin has clients coming from all over the area for custom fittings. Designer brands include 7 for All Mankind, Hudson and AG.

Preppy powerhouse Vineyard Vines has moved into a larger space within King of Prussia Mall so it can offer an expanded selection of the brand’s signature neckwear (Villanova and Penn State are the only two area schools represented in its university collection). There’s also a wider variety of clothing and accessories for men, women and children.
