Spring 2013 Valentino Bags

10/10/2012, Accessories, Fashion and Style, Handbags, Spring Summer 2013, Valentino

While my super gorgeous seatmate Jessica Stam was busy fanning herself (I don’t blame her — it was soo hot at the Tuileries) while watching the spring/summer 2013 fashion show, I couldn’t stop ooh-ing and ahh-ing at these MAJOR Valentino bags.

Oh and this amazing pyramid-studded, clear trench coat showed up. I DIED!

The timing could not be anymore perfect because I wore a transparent Sonia Rykiel coat at Chanel earlier that morning.

Hater Blockers

17/09/2012, Accessories, Alexander Wang, Current Affairs, Oscar de la Renta, Prada

It’s been quite some time since I last took these Alexander McQueen visors out for a spin. I’ve had it for a couple of months now. It never fails to draw so much attention — I’ve been stopped many, many times on the street from people asking me whether I could see through them (the answer is yes)! And then of course, talking to my friends always result in major hysterics. “You need to take them off when I’m talking to you. I can’t take you seriously!,” a friend quipped. The visors are obnoxious, yes, but it’s a great conversation piece. I love it.

All Aboard Marchesa Express

10/09/2012, Accessories, Fashion and Style, Marchesa, Spring Summer 2013

It’s no secret that I’m a HUGE fan of Marchesa. Georgina Chapman and Keren Craig make some of the most magical and magnificent dresses around. I recently visited their headquarters to see what their team are brewing for their spring/summer 2013 fashion show on Wednesday afternoon and these enormous inspiration boards greeted me.

A close inspection of the mood boards reveal India (and its rich history of colour, details and embellishment) as a huge reference point.

I thought it was so gracious and kind of Georgina to give me an intimate tour of their studio. She introduced me to her atelier staff, showed me how samples are made and gave me a preview of some of their gorgeous crystal and exotic skin clutch bags!

Georgina is one of the talented personalities Canon have chosen to direct films as part of their Project Imagination film festival. I can’t wait to see the film she directs for Canon and of course, I’m excited for Wednesday’s fashion show.

Very Village People

28/08/2012, Accessories, Current Affairs, Hats, New York City

Rumi and I trekked to the East Village this Sunday for brunch at Via Della Pace. It’s been a while since I last had eggs benedict, smoked salmon and mimosas on a beautiful Sunday afternoon. I love the East Vilage. I really do. There are tons of cute little cafes, restaurants and vintage shops. I should come back there more often.

A Mixture of Textures

25/08/2012, Accessories, Current Affairs, Fashion and Style, J Crew, Oscar de la Renta, Prada

How are you prepping for fall? I bought this tweed outfit (top and trousers) from J Crew sometime last week and I thought it would be cool to elevate the look with this ultra chic and ultra luxe crocodile Oscar de la Renta small dex bag. Ditto with the floral appliques of the new shoe from Prada. Little touches of lady-like goodness certainly won’t hurt a boy from time to time.
