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


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.


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.


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.

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.

Top Bags to Show Your Strength: Pink is the New Black

Categories:Other Brands

How good are these bags? We already know master of whimsy Charlotte Olympia can execute evening kitsch to perfection, but finding out she can do bigger bags equally well makes her my new hero. Inspired by – what else? – old Hollywood, her limited-edition collection of totes, shoulder clutches, and top-handle bags are exclusively on My Theresa, which makes them feel all the more lust-worthy. Not that they need any help.

The ultra-classic Bogart bag is timeless perfection, especially in ivory and leopard, and to make the retro-fabulous style even more special, each one comes with a pair of coordinating gloves (in black, ivory, pink, or red) to really drive the point home: this is the ultimate in ‘50s-inspired ladylike chic. Believe it or not, Charlotte executes a modern vibe with even more finesse. With its sleek, twisted clear-plastic handle, the Gable tote sports a streamlined body which smartly saves all the drama for up above. Lined in soft, gold-metallic leather, you feel like you’re unearthing a treasure each time you open your bag. Among the other styles in this 10-piece collection: the Astaire clutch, worthy of a night on the town, and the surprisingly restrained east-west Brando tote. They may be named after her favorite leading men, but Charlotte’s bags are as feminine as they come. Sunset Boulevard hasn’t felt this fresh since the good, old days of Hollywood. The Bogarticon, $3,236, Gableicon, $2,108, and Brando $2,531, totes and the Astaire clutchicon, $2,108, are available exclusively on My Theresaicon.

From demure blush tones to innocent garden hues to quintessential Barbie pinks to searing fuchsias and bold magentas to the perfect shade of lipstick pink: October is the best month to show off your best pinks, in support of Breast Cancer Awareness.
I plan on carrying a pink bag or wearing something pink every day of the month, and I’m going to have a hard time deciding between all the rosy pieces that have suddenly popped up on my radar, like Nancy Gonzalez’s pink-hot crocodile tote, Prada’s sweet saffiano mini crossbody, Givenchy’s petal-pale Antigona bag, and Charlotte Olympia’s evening-ready satin pouch, to name just a few. But there’s no need to have 31 pink bags to successfully take October by storm, lest your bag closet look like the Mattel showroom got the best of it. There’s absolutely nothing wrong with repeating the same bag all month long. Call it the Bag Snob Pink Challenge! Tag your Instagrams and Tweets with #BagSnobPinkChallenge, and I’ll repost my favorites. Even if you prefer not to commit to an all-over pink bag, just a touch of my favorite shade on your bag or outfit will do. Look to a piece like Valentino’s Italian Pop shoulder bag to successfully show your strength, as well as support in raising awareness for a cause that affects each and every one of us.
Most importantly, don’t forget to donate to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation and share the organization’s link with friends and family!
