Farid’s Fashion File

Rules to live by from a fashion veteran.

Accessory you can’t live without … a nice watch such as Harry Winston or De Grisogono.

Designer you can always count on … Tom Ford, anything you wear from that brand will make you stand out.

Las Vegas summer style advice … try not to wear ties, you still want to look sophisticated but without too many layers.

Paul Smith, Ermenegildo Zegna and Dolce & Gabbana all dot Matraki’s wardrobe and can be found in Crystals at CityCenter. 590-9299; CrystalsAtCityCenter.com.
