Tube topper

Houndstooth, that classic pattern, appears this fall on a very 21st-century invention. Finding high style (and clever word-play) in the lowliest of life's details—bathroom paraphernalia included—Dior's Hedi Slimane has designed a toothpaste-tube cover for his Homme Maison line (there's also a brass comb and a shoe horn). The waterproof woven nylon sleeve, which fastens at the bottom with an engraved brass clip, is flexible enough to roll and slips over most midsize tubes. $170; 212-421-6009;
