Don't be surprised to see people break out of the pack this spring by wearing satin shoes in step class or reflective-foil marathon jackets at the mall. Several designers are infusing fashion into clothing and accessories that are meant for the street, but inspired by sport. The result? Multipurpose pieces that make a chic transition from running on the treadmill to running errands and maybe even fill the bill for a casual business meeting.

Heads up, Blahnik, Choo and Louboutin; there's a new luxury shoe designer, and he's not lacking in attitude. "A daughter doesn't want to wear what her mother is wearing," says George Mang of his collection of intricately designed footwear, which debuts this fall. "I think I have something different to say than what's out there." A high school dropout who "wanted to grow up to be Keith Richards," Mang started his career at 16 as a department store shoe salesman in Phoenix.

Architectural designer Denise Ip only recently began her love affair with cars, and her heart belongs to her 1969 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme 442. It was one of those love-at-first-sight things. "It wasn't rational. I just knew I had to have it," the 24-year-old says. It was a Sunday. "I was driving through the hills in Silver Lake, and I saw it parked by the side of the road.

Real patent is leather, given a high gloss finish and a coating of plastic.

The tree-lined block that juts out of La Cienega Boulevard just above Melrose Avenue is a bit of a retail oddity for Los Angeles: a quiet, quaint address in the middle of the bustling city. And as such, Melrose Place -- not the fictional location of the television show with the same name but rather the concrete-and-ivy street with nary an apartment building in sight -- has always been a destination for a certain kind of shopper, the kind of person who might employ a decorator, a stylist or both.

You can tell a man by his shoes, but you can tell a fashion house by its purse. First came the Prada backpack that made the triangular logo as famous as it was lucrative. Next came Gucci's metallic totes and Jackie bags that showed how accessories could breathe life into near-dead fashion companies. Lately, it's been the whimsical Fendi baguette swinging from status-conscious elbows. Now, Dior has signed "It" girl Gwyneth Paltrow to appear in an ad campaign for the City Dior handbag line.
