NY Fashion Week Fall 2012: Victoria Beckham

14 Feb

Victoria Beckham is on a roll, she’s just running, guns blazing, stamping her image on the fashion world and simply not letting up.

To coincide with Fall fashion week, she launched a new bag named after baby Harper. Different from the typical VB bag but a beautiful addition to the pack, she’s becoming pretty unpredictable and that’s a good thing.

With the Fall 2012 collection, she takes me right back to the place where I first fell in love with the line. It screams sleek sophistication, elegance, feminine allure and has got so much gravitas, simply head turning, simply stunning. Military accents that seem to be trending already are present in the collection as well.

The surprise element has to be those tough looking boots, very edgy and a complete contrast from the heels we’ve come to expect. Interestingly, the look works perfectly well, if there’s anyone who can make boots look feminine and sophisticated, it’s Victoria Beckham. These here are my best looks from the collection.

Victoria Beckham Spring 2012 Bags

20 Jan

This lady is certainly not laughing, she’s ain’t kidding. Watch your back Louis Vuitton, VB is coming.

The first Victoria Beckham bag collection was moderate and just enough to complement the clothes. Enter Spring 2012 and it’s obvious she has plans to build a bag empire.

The Spring 2012 collection features such a wide variety of bags, ranging from ipad and blackberry cases to clutch bags, shoulder bags, convertible bags and travel cases. There were chain strap bags, duffel bags, totes and a departure from the regular structured bags to slouchy bags. They came in a variety of colours – lemon, turquoise, peach and the signature “Victoria” bag was made in python and alligator textures.

I mean,  this lady could give LV a run for their money, how do we know she’s not dropping a travel luggage range in the mix next season. Either way she goes, Viva Victoria Beckham!

And by the way, if you’re drooling, start saving, prices range from £900 for the shoulder bags up to £8,000+ for the ‘Victoria’ crocodile bag. They sell out fast too, so save up fast ;)

The Stunning Bags of Louis Vuitton’s Spring Collection

11 Oct

The clothes and shoes in the Louis Vuitton collection were pretty, very quaint and girly. A huge departure from the 70s disco party from last season.

I admired the use of laser cut lace and pastel shades and the lacey umbrellas the models clutched BUT it was the bags that grabbed me and didn’t let go. What beauty! The colours, the sizes, the styles. Louis Vuitton is so so hard to beat when it comes to bags and luggage.

I fully and totally heart this bag line up. If this really is Marc Jacobs’ last collection for Louis Vuitton, it’s a very fitting finish, we’ll be waiting for him at the Dior end.

All  these picks are loved and very wanted. Lol

The Chanel Boy Bag

13 Jun

For all passionate lovers of Coco Chanel and Karl Lagerfeld, this could be a very exciting development or this could evoke a temper tantrum, afterall, we’ve come to love our classic quilted bag and full chain strap. It’s the one we dream about and if we don’t have it already, hope to acquire in the sweet someday. That’s the signature of the Chanel label, Coco Chanel and the timeless Parisian chic style.

But hey we welcome change and this change is actually pretty, the new bag range from Chanel. Wise Karl Lagerfeld is quick to remind the many devoted fans of Coco Chanel that this bag is still all about her. This here is the most quoted part of Lagerfeld’s statement about the new boy bag, “Chanel used men’s underwear to make dresses; she had this boyish attitude, in fact it is the very spirit of Chanel. She got it from Boy Capel, the great love of her life, which, incidentally, explains why the new bag is called the Boy Chanel,” Hmmmm….yeah but we won’t stop loving the good old 2.55 bag ;-)

The new range is available in classic colours of red, grey, and ivory in glazed calfskin clutches, purses, and totes, they will hit Chanel boutiques this Fall with prices ranging from $2,500-$4,300. You might want to keep an eye on Chanel.com to get updates on this chic new development ;-)

The Trend: Bright Coloured Bags

17 Mar

I’m sure it’s now painfully obvious that I am obsessing over this electric colour trend. It’s reminiscent of how I went on and on about the 50s trend for last Fall, Lol, I wanted it to go on forever. Still love the 50s, Fifties Forever! On trend or not.

Back to the moment, Spring is full of exciting trends, the 70s comeback is absolutely fabulous, Oh the beauty of wide leg pants, blouson sleeved blouses and platforms.

The next best thing is the electric colour trend, this one has completely got my heart; all the vibrant hues, clashing colours and colour blocking = blissful sight. What makes it perfect is that it’s not just with clothes you can rock this trend, there are tons of beautiful accessories, shoes and bags in brilliant, bright colours. So just in case for some weird reason, you’re not jumping on the electric colour train, try out some accessories to give zing to your dark wardrobe palette.

Excellent way to start is with bags; clutches, satchels, hobos, shoulder bags, you have a wide array of options to choose from.

Here’s my fav selection. I want ‘em all by the way
