Victoria Beckham Bag sells out in minutes

22 Dec

I’m the biggest fan of Victoria Beckham, style wise and fashion label wise. She recently launched the beautiful bag collection and two of the designs hit Net-a-porter today.

Apparently, this one here sold out in minutes.

Around the world in a state of fashion forwardness: Louis Vuitton

15 Dec

You can’t expect anything less than exquisiteness where Louis Vuitton is concerned. This editorial is decadently chic, the pictures should be blown up to life size posters, framed in glass and put up in a gallery.

The photos were inspired by Louis Vuitton’s 2.011 city guides, illustrated by Ruben Toledo. The fashion spread was in In Fashion magazine. Love Love Love.

The Luxe edit: Crème of Spring 2011 Bags

20 Nov

Spring 2011 is looking awfully beautiful for fashion. But then, it was pretty obvious from the Fashion weeks. I’ve been looking at the accessories over and over and it’s a deluge of beautiful pieces to choose from.

Talking about the bags, it is a sea of endless possibilities ranging from clutches to totes to the new small bag. I already did a previous post on my top 40 Spring 2011 bags. Right now, i’m awed by these pieces I consider pure art. My favourite is the Lanvin with a bronze leaf detail.

The Sleek Victoria Beckham Bag Collection

16 Nov

When Victoria Beckham launches a bag line, what will you expect to see? Structure, minimalism, solid colours, functionality. Yeah, quite reflective of her clothing line.

She’s created this classic collection in collaboration with stellar accessories designer Katie Hillier. Each bag is supposed to represent 24 hours in the day of Victoria Beckham, so there’s the large travel bag and the Victoria bag for everyday.

And as with all things VB, I am smitten.

Glam structure to the max: Palmer & Sons No 18 Leather Rucksack

28 Oct

Now this is one beautiful work of art.

Made with lush havana brown leather with brass rivets and a handmade cocobolo handle, what says luxury luggage better than this. You could argue how much the bag would hold; it was designed to carry laptops, cameras and books, which is perfectly fine.  But who says it can’t be put to even more glamorous use.

Structure is definitely beautiful.

Bag Lurv: Miu Miu Natté and Patent Leather Handbag

I love how Prada has these metallic florals on most of the pieces in the fall collection. This bag is simply gorgeous.

Style Statement: Tailored Wide Leg Pants

20 Oct

The wide leg pants made a come back on the runways with Fall 2010. It was actually the season of tailored evening pants, with peg legs, straight pants; all quickly giving the dear dowdy harem pants a boot.

These tailored pants are beautiful because they give you a polished, sleek chic look. I particularly love the high waisted, wide legs, not only do they minimise the bum but they give a super leg lengthening effect, particularly when paired with skyscraper heels.

And they won’t be going anywhere soon, they were all over the runways for Spring 2011, inspired by the seventies. I found an interesting piece on NY Times Fashion & Style talking about how to wear this look. Got me thinking about how i’d wear it.

Look 1 would be wool and silk blend top tucked into high waist wide leg pants,  high heels and bag; finished off with gold plated cuffs

Tailored Pants

Look 2 is more formal, wide leg pants worn with white shirt and plaid jacket, with my favourite bag du jour and high heels of course
