Métier’s Closer is the day-to-night briefcase of your dreams.

The Bolshoi and Mariinsky may be the familiar names in the West, but the Vaganova Ballet Academy is where the great dancers for both companies (Balanchine and Bary­shnikov included) were trained. To this day it re­­mains a mostly private and very exclusive dance school. But trips to the legendary establishment's museum, with its fascinating collection of memorabilia—slippers and costumes, drawings and photo­graphs signed by, or belonging to, the greats—can be arranged by special appointment. At 2 Rossi Ulitsa; 7-812/110-4760; vaganova.ru.
