BOY CHANEL QUILTED VELVET BAG

Boy-Chanel-Velvet-Bag-Has-Returned-For-The-Spring-Summer-2017-Collection

The Boy Bag is nice, leather is great as well, but how about Velvet? Since the first introduction of the Pre-Fall Winter 2015 Collection, the Boy Chanel Velvet Bag has returned again and again as an alternative to the leather edition. For the Velvet, there are pros and cons of course. But at the end, it’s personal choice as well.

Exuding class, elegance and sophistication in one, the bag is in velvet, but it doesn’t stop it from getting the diamond-quilted pattern. This bag is as pretty as the leather edition and it features the same elements as well like the Boy Clasp, the shape and the Boyish chain.

Now Velvet is described to be a tufted fabric, which has a distinguishing feel once you run your fingers through it. Though this kind of fabric is hard to maintain, the good news on the other hand is that it offers a super soft tactile feel, which could tickle your luxury fancies!

The downside is the maintenance, if this is your first Chanel, then you might want to pick the leather edition. Velvet is harder to maintain and you need to baby it more often.

However, Velvet feels extremely soft and luxurious. It gives you different experience than the other materials. At the end, this is a personal choice. But if the Velvet Boy Bag is presented to you one day, will you give it a chance?

Coach x Rodarte Capsule Collection

Categories:Other Brands

IMAGES: COACH

You must be wondering, what’s there to collaborate between two American brands? Well, for one, the Mulleavy sisters and Stuart Vevers share a similar punk-rock aesthetic and the love for all things sequins and embellishments. Coming together to work on something that amplifies the creative vision of both labels is perhaps as good as it gets when it comes to the Coach x Rodarte collaboration collection.

IMAGE: COACH

Rodarte, who has always specialised in their edgy RTW, have teamed up with Coach and its expertise in leather, making it one of the most interesting collections that’s made up of RTW, handbags and accessories so far this year. Take, for example, the standout shoulder sling bags that effortlessly combine Rodarte’s signature appliqué styles with Coach’s leather craftsmanship; it’s like a match made in heaven.

IMAGE: COACH

Then there are also the sweatshirts and tees that feature Coach’s advertisements from the 70s with slogans like This Is A Coach Bag that’s definitely fun and a little quirky, perfect for those with an ample sense of humour. The collection evens extends to more elaborate pieces like leather dresses and motorcycle jackets, which start from an affordable USD295 all the way to USD1900 for the one-off limited edition collection.

Now that we’re all excited, here’s the bad news. The collection will not be available in Singapore, but will be available online via Coach US come 14 April 2017. In other words, it’s time to ask anyone you know who’s located in the States to help you out, or better yet (and not owe anyone favours), just use a good forwarder that you can ship to in the US before the parcel is shipped onward to our sunny shores. Too much effort? Not really, especially when it is a collaboration this beautiful.

IT’S TIME TO GET YOUR LAYERS ONE

Chanel Cruise Cuba collection Charlotte Groeneveld Thefashionguitar

On days like these, when the outside temperature feels like what my iPhone tells me -20 degrees Celsius, there’s nothing else we can do than stay inside, and imagine ourselves in more favorable temperatures. If it were only a few degrees above zero, I would imagine myself going out in this sunny Chanel Cruise Cuba collection outfit for brunch. Of course with an appropriate coat one top – I’m still eyeing the Balenciaga puffer and waiting anxiously for it to go on sale… which probably won’t happen anywhere near where I live. I’m drifting off, what I really wanted to say is that when it is cold…


… and then I mean REALLY cold as well as “doable” cold, key is to wear your layers. No rocket science here, I know, but what is something you can reconsider is how to wear your layers. Not only going with base layers that we don’t see, but go for that turtleneck under your slip-dress, or a pair of cropped skinny jeans under your midi-skirt. It might feel completely weird, but in fact, nowadays, fashion isn’t a much about the perfect ratio of the combination you are wearing. It’s much more about personal freedom in the way we wear things, and how we combine them. Proportions are allowed to be odd, the perfect fit isn’t key – although wearing something too small will never be in fashion I think – and I almost feel the need to say “when a look feels slightly uncomfortable due to the above mentioned, you probably are on the right track”.

So transforming this look into something I could actually wear today – reminder, it feels like -20 degrees Celsius outside – I would 1. add a huge puffer coat 2. wear a thin turtleneck under my top 3. Add silky sparkly little socks in my shoes 4. and finish it off with a beanie.

Ready to conquer the cold, in “inappropriate” style.

Louis Vuitton Damier Nemeth Rope Collection

Categories:Louis Vuitton

IMAGE: LOUIS VUITTON

You’ve already seen the Monogram World Tour collection, Louis Vuitton’s dedicated Christmas collection created specially for the ladies (and boys who love their Monogram Canvas). Now feast your eyes on the men’s equivalent, which is basically a mash-up between something old and something new.

The old (or in this case, classic is the Damier Graphite coated-canvas), given new life with something new, a reanimation of a previous collaboration with artist Christopher Nemeth. Featuring his distinct rope print, the Damier Nemeth Rope collection, as it is called, comes in 2 colour combinations, a blue rope print on Damier Graphite, as well as a red rope print on other pieces.

Besides bags in at least 4 different styles (there are 2 backpacks, a messenger and a Keepall all adorned with the rope print), there’s also a huge variety of SLGs, which in my opinion are always welcome stocking stuffers.

IMAGE: LOUIS VUITTON

From the Damier Graphite Rope Bleu Ambler (a generously-proportioned bumbag, if you must know) that retails for SGD2200 to the PF Slender(LV’s standard 8 card billfold wallet, SGD745) and Zippy Coin Purse(SGD610), you’ll be hard-pressed to find a style not to your liking, especially with the variety of styles available.


IMAGE: LOUIS VUITTON

Then there are these, from the classic Zippy Organiser Wallet (SGD1440) to the PF Brazza in Brazza Damier Graphite Rope Rouge (a long wallet with a single zip compartment on the inside), one of the styles I swear by that retails for just SGD1030. And in case you’re in the market for a new zip portfolio, the Pochette Jour GM (shown at the top of this post, SGD1010) is a good option, the 34 cm by 25 cm case big enough for say, a MacBook Air.Or an iPad, documents and then some, but you know what I mean. But if you want something from LV but this is just not your thing, hit this link and check out the other new crowd favourite from the French luxury house this season, Monogram Eclipse.

LOUIS VUITTON FALL WINTER RUNWAY BAG

Categories:Louis Vuitton

Ever since Nicolas Ghesquière has joined Louis Vuitton, he reinvents beautiful and unique pieces for the Parisian brand. This season he has done it again with a number of new styles. The Fall/Winter 2016 Collection features a sporty look using many of the classic bag styles. The iconic Speedy is back this season and comes with Louis Vuitton badges. The mini trunks also makes a return which now includes a shoulder strap and available in two sizes. The popular Petite Malle and Twist Bags comes with a strap that have handles wrapped in scarves. Another travel bag makes it to the runway which has similarities to the Cruiser Bag with a large Vuitton printed on it. The bag collection presents the signature Monogram Canvas in Crocodile, Leopard Print and Metallic Hologram. Louis-Vuitton-Fall-Winter-2016-Bag-Runway-Bag-Collection-2 Louis Vuitton’s Fall/Winter 2016 Bag Runway Collection did not fail to disappoint with drool-worthy, jaw-dropping bag pieces. Nicolas Ghesquière, the creative director behind this favorite French fashion powerhouse, knows his game so well that his mastery of his craft is all evident and visible from each bag piece. Ever since he appeared in the fashion scene and handled LV since 2013, he is seen being all-hands in making the brand adaptable so as it could cater to the millennials as well. For the Fall/Winter 2016 Bag Runaway Collection, LV lovers and fans will definitely be mesmerized by the big range of handbags from crocodile totes, tiny backpacks, holographic trunks to the traditional leopard prints. There is this small bucket bag that has captured our hearts and attention for it is something we’ve never seen before. A unique design, this bag is seen sporting the famous monogram LV logo + some classic black color. For the luggage box bag, it took its inspiration from the iconic LV classic luggage. A short history recap, LV had its humble beginnings in 1854 when Vuitton himself introduced his trunks with trianon canvas. Louis-Vuitton-Fall-Winter-2016-Bag-Runway-Bag-Collection-3
Louis-Vuitton-Fall-Winter-2016-Bag-Runway-Bag-Collection-4 At the end of a long month of shows, editors and buyers make superlative lists. Tallying things up, Nicolas Ghesquière gets high marks for his Louis Vuitton collection. One of the best shows of the season, it was also his most confident and convincing yet for Vuitton, full of pieces easy to love and to wear. Inside three specially constructed geometric structures crash-landed behind the Fondation Louis Vuitton, the setup was an underwater world, a lost Atlantis with columns, made in collaboration with the French artist Justin Morin, jutting out of the runway at odd angles. For those counting, there were 57 total, requiring 200,000 pieces of hand-fixed shattered mirrors. Afterward, Ghesquière said, “we had an idea of this trip, of a woman who could be a digital heroine, like Tomb Raider, when she discovers an archaeological site.” Ghesquière was mining his own history. He’s known as the great experimenter from his near decade and a half at Balenciaga, and rightfully so, but his most beloved collections there tapped into the energy of the street. He captured that feeling here, with a broad offering that merged athletic pieces with a more fluid sensuality than he’s emphasized yet in his collections for Vuitton.
On the sporty side, there were mohair sweaters and jacket-sweater hybrids with racing stripes up and down the arms. Color-blocked stretchy knit shirts and tube dresses looked like relatively easy-on-the-wallet ways to buy into the look. Representing the sensual side were midi-length dresses in heritage scarf prints and a white silk number topped by a black leather harness that caught the runway breeze. We liked the look of zip-front, molded-hip jackets worn with loosely tailored bondage pants, and nipped-waist coats with exaggerated storm flaps. The diversity of the clothes was matched by a wide range of bags, the most eye-catching of which was a softly structured style apparently modeled on a double-handled plastic shopping bag. It doesn’t get much more streetwise than the show’s lace-front combat boots. Ghesquière dipped into the archive of others, as well. The ending section of sequin slip dresses looked like a nod to a late-’90s collection of the Belgian designer Martin Margiela, whom Ghesquière has long revered and who has become a popular reference point this season with the rise of Vetements. Demna Gvasalia made a big splash with his debut at Ghesquière’s former stomping grounds earlier this week. Were the dresses a tweak in his direction? Insiders will be hashing that out as they make their ways home from Paris in the coming days. But it won’t matter one stitch to customers, who will appreciate and buy into the frocks’ haute-casual vibes and poetic spirit.
Louis-Vuitton-Fall-Winter-2016-Bag-Runway-Bag-Collection-6 Perhaps it wasn't obvious from the first look at Nicolas Ghesquière's sporty punky gang, but he approached Louis Vuitton's autumn/winter 2016 collection by looking back; it was about recasting yesterday's creations for today's tastes. And so, fusty, vintage looking scarf prints depicting chains or paisley were fashioned into slip dresses with handkerchief hems, some decorated in sparkling sequins, and partnered up with ultra-cropped boxy leather jackets and tread-sole boots. The Paris-based artist, Justin Morin collaborated with Ghesquière on the set, which took shape as an ad hoc arrangement of 57 concrete columns ripped in half and clad in smashed mirrored tiles (an installation that was inspired by his work 'Melted Bones', 2011). It looked like some meteorite had hit the Louis Vuitton Foundation from outer space. While we're on the subject of epic journeys, for show goers - including Léa Seydoux, Selena Gomez, Jaden Smith and Alicia Vikander - it was no small task arriving here this morning. With a public transport strike, heavy rain and traffic to contend with, the show was 45-minutes late in starting. It proved to be worth the wait. Louis-Vuitton-Fall-Winter-2016-Bag-Runway-Bag-Collection-5 It’s no secret that the modern day iteration of Louis Vuitton rests on the laurels of its luggage brand heritage. And why not? There is truly nothing better than an oversized trunk splashed with monogrammed LV’s. Since he arrived on the scene in 2013, creative director Nicolas Ghesquière has been busy transforming the brand’s DNA into a digestible range for millennials. And he’s been doing a phenomenal job of capturing their hearts (and Instagram accounts). For one thing, his front rows are packed with young stars of the A-list caliber, including Selena Gomez, Jaden Smith and even top model Karlie Kloss. Further, his runway sets are imaginative and captivating, just like the commissioned creation by Justin Morin for Fall/Winter 2016. Featuring shattered mirrors and gargantuan crystals, the Vuitton show space was both captivating and social media friendly. Finally, there is the actual clothing, which is a hybrid of haute design and wearable sportswear. Red patent leather cropped flares were equally as enchanting as billowy patchwork t-shirt dresses. Sculptural coats with a sporty influence were major players, as were corset details on dresses, jackets and tops. But this season, we were particularly captivated by the handbag selection. Running the gamut from holographic trunks to crocodile totes, Mr. Ghesquère flexed his design muscle while paying astute attention to the Vuitton roots. Without further ado, here are all the drool-worthy bags from the Fall/Winter range.
