Reinvent the classic design (which honors the brand's founder, Guccio Gucci) by inverting it—as Gucci has done for its new Running G collection. Its pieces rendered in 18k yellow gold or white gold with slivers of shimmering diamonds, the new line features necklaces, bracelets, and drop earrings. But it's the rings that are garnering the most attention, including one cast in a striking octagonal shape, stacked to look like two separate rings, and adorned with a subtle sprinkling of diamonds. We love the versatility these pieces offer: Wear them from the office to after-work cocktails at Liquid Art House.

Founded by the acclaimed Italian architect behind the new Har vard A rt Museums building, the Renzo Piano Building Workshop has teamed up with Italian fashion powerhouse Max Mara to design its new Whitney bag. Ref lecting Piano's archi- tectural aesthetic and playing off the shapes of the new building he designed for New York's Whitney Museum of American Art, the bag is distinguished by its structural detail and unique rib- bing. Add beautiful leather and superb craftsmanship and it takes chic to a new level. Available in black, bordeaux, tan, and a limited-edition light blue reminiscent of the museum's façade, the bag even has a special coating that mimics materials used in the museum. 69 Newbury St., 617-267-9775; maxmara.com inspired!
