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 Best of Spring 2011 Bags: My Top 40

14 Oct

The attention grabbing clothes did a good job of trying to outshine the accessories but they were right there, holding their own and spicing things up.

After looking at the gorgeous bags that made the Spring 2011 runways, I chose my top 40 beauties. You’ll probably decipher that I love totes, the bigger the better, structure is right up my alley too. It wasn’t all totes though, there was an abundance of clutch bags a la Burberry, across the body bags and compact structured pieces. The abundantly fringed Roberto Cavalli bags stood out against the pack and appealed to the boho side of me.

For Spring 2011 bag trends, there’s a lot of structured large totes, the bags look large enough to fit all summer essentials and more, beach house perhaps? lol. The bright color trends showed up in bags too, there’s patterns, florals and embellishment, reflecting the key Spring trends.

Milan Fashion Week: Roberto Cavalli’s Exquisite Fringing

28 Sep

This SS 2011 marked Roberto Cavalli’s 40th year in business, so he rolled out the drums for a significant collection. It was fringe land, quite sultry, lots of cling and movement, snake skin, intricate beading. What stood out was the sheer craftsmanship that went into the collection. The sequins, beads and crystal detailing, all hand sewn. Another display of fashion as art. Will these would be worn in real life and who will wear them is a different discussion.
