I guess we are in a little post-and pre fashion week panic in terms of finding the right bag that ‘swallows’ all the necessities such as laptops, iPads a bunch of origami invites and a pair of comfy shoes for the end of the day. While busy searching blogs, I bumped into the brilliant 3.1 Phillip Lim pre-fall 2013 collection and I couldn’t resist sharing with you some of my favourite snapshots of this sight-pleasing simplicity that the collection carries. The range of accessories include hip and chic pieces inspired by tough bikers, and urban allure through the eye of the statement-making Phillip Lim. I particularly appreciate the ease of achieving such beautiful toughness by cleverly dealing with colour and texture that flawlessly completes an outfit but it is also a functional piece for your day-to-day essentials. The collection discovers an array of cool, while staying certainly loyal to the Lim-like woman and yet satisfying sartorial cravings in terms of accessories such as bags, shoes, sunnies and iPad cases. Fashion Week season, here we come!

Ich fürchte, wir befinden uns in einer kleinen Post und Pre Fashion Week Panik, was das Finden der richtigen Handtasche angeht, die alles Nötige ‘schluckt’, wie zum Beispiel Laptops, iPads, einen Haufen Origami Einladungen und bequeme Schuhe für das Ende des Tages.  (more…)

What’s your favourite accessories-type, ladies; shoes, jewellery or bags? Either of them, you’ll probably turn out to be a bag-lover as you discover the brand new ‘Le Dix’ model from Balenciaga. The dark-toned Calfskin Cartable bag is the prettiest piece of Alexander Wang’s first handbag collection for the Parisian label. ‘The name, which is French for ten, alludes to the fashion house’s original address at 10 Avenue George V and the handbag having the ‘perfect ten’ in terms of craftsmanship.’ The beautifully structured, minimalist piece of the line of satchels is the perfect choice for the ladylike-but-modern woman, who wants simple yet functional quality in her wardrobe. I’m sure that these bags will not fail to toy with your heart however the trick is that some of us got used to the Balenciaga-like edgy glam, so decide it on your own whether Alexander’s aesthetic isn’t too simplistic and minimalistic. As for us, we couldn’t resist wearing it! What about you? PS The video was shot by Toby McFarlan Pond under the artistic direction of Wang to a song titled ‘Light Foot’ by Terry Devine-King.

Michael Kors is recognized as one of America’s renown designers for luxury sportswear and accessories and definitely one who masters understated luxury. Accessories never take a back seat at Kors’ shows and Spring/Summer 2013 was no different; structured satchel bags, metallic and lucite accents on streamlined shoes, futuristic sculptural belts and modernist watches stole the show. The bags of casual luxury in all current trend colours made the perfect match with structured pieces covered with graphic prints. The bags came in many different colours and colour combinations, ranging from bright green through metallics to orange and yellow. Besides the bags, Kors lined up oversized goggles that were both futuristic and a little vintage, semi-transparent ankle strap heels, statement watches and bracelets that could be interpreted in every modern woman’s wardrobe. Some says sometimes details make the look, and the Kors-like ones are definitely one of those!
