FrontRunners: Boys to Men

William Kissel

Ian Leslie (212.679.5337, www.janleslie.com) believes that most men are boys at heart. The New York jewelry designer frequently incorporates whimsical motifs—insects, sailboats, miniature cars, tin soldiers—in her collection of cuff links, but this fall she set aside the playthings to concentrate on more sophisticated designs. Her latest line includes a group of sterling silver cuff links accented with a piece of hand-colored shagreen (stingray skin), which is framed with handpainted enamel. Leslie worked with the fashion team at Bergdorf Goodman Men to color match the $325 cuff links to the store’s fall clothing assortment. “They’re definitely elegant,” she says of the cuff links, “not whimsical at all.”
