Winter Wonderland

Four Seasons Resort Vail debuted in December, bringing to the slopes such luxuries as a ski concierge and a spa focusing on high-altitude therapies. Guests at the 121-room property can also take après-ski soaks in the heated outdoor saltwater pool (left, top)—the perfect elixir for muscle fatigue. Rates from $475. fourseasons.com


On the Fringe
Part of Bottega Veneta’s Cruise 2010 collection, the Sfrangiato Shiny Calf Knot (left, bottom) boasts double-sided fringe (sfrangiato in Italian) that lends the woven leather clutch a unique texture. It’s available in a colorful spectrum: Magma, Assenzio, Empire, Lagoon and Matita. $1,980.
