Something To Admire From Afar

10/03/2012, Accessories, Fashion and Style, Givenchy, Handbags

You know you’ve hit the jackpot and have made it in life when everything you own is white. Why? Only someone with unlimited financial resources can manage to not care about keeping their precious blanc things pristine. I’ve fallen in love with the black python Givenchy Antigona bag (it’s numero uno on my wishlist) but the white leather version, below, takes the cake. I’m not really a white bag person. My sweaty, clammy hands and my clumsiness will get this flawless baby extremely dirty in no time.

Mademoiselle et Madame

05/03/2012, Accessories, Anna Dello Russo, Current Affairs, Jil Sander, Lanvin

Alber Elbaz celebrated his 10th anniversary at Lanvin a couple of days ago (how fast time flies!). My friend German took photos of Anna dello Russo and moi in our veiled headgear. I’m so glad I bought the veiled beanie at Jil Sander. I wanted to buy the white version but it’s going to be a bitch cleaning it because you can’t wash the beanie; I don’t think a dry cleaner would accept it either…

Furla Fall 2012 Presentation

29/02/2012, Accessories, Current Affairs, Fall Winter 2012, Fashion and Style, Furla, Handbags

Immediately after the Moschino fashion show, I visited the fall/winter 2012 Furla presentation. They’ve collaborated with performance artist Sissi to launch their new collection of very spacious and reversible tote bags dubbed “Furla and I”. A mini stage was installed in the venue where models, in white leggings, rotated, holding the new bags. They also presented several new additions to the Furla Canda collection — I like the white Furla Candy bag with the dalmatian print on ponyskin.

Moschino Backpack Fall 2012

28/02/2012, Accessories, Anna Dello Russo, Fall Winter 2012, Fashion and Style, Handbags, Moschino

I have to be honest — I could count, with three fingers, the reasons why I would attend a 9AM show: it has to be a brand or designer that I personally love, to show my support to an advertiser, and lastly, a friend is designing/styling the show. It could also be a combination of both or all of the above. In any case, I had fun at the Moschino show a couple of days ago. I’m obsessed with backpacks as of late and these gold-chained knapsacks from their fall/winter 2012 collection are soo cute. They remind me of backpacks Chanel did back in the dark ages but the handle made them — multifunctional in the sense that you can also carry them as a handbag. Love it!

I love these gorgeous exotic cuff bracelets from Dannijo’s spring/summer 2012 collection. I salivated over the two-tone stingray cuffs (photo below) in terrific colors when I went to their showroom last week. Although we haven’t seen the long, cold bitter days of winter yet, it’s never too early to start shopping for spring!

Nifty Gifty

18/12/2011, Accessories, Fashion and Style, Handbags, Marc Jacobs

Behold one of the coolest backpacks I’ve seen in a long time. Can’t take my mind off it. The bag is made out of faux leather but the badass edgy python-scale details make up for it. Love the super friendly price point as well — this backpack has serious ‘everyday bag’ potential.

Closet Space

10/12/2011, Accessories, Current Affairs, Fashion and Style

Packing/unpacking is the bane of my existence. But when a hotel room’s closet space is as generous as the one at the Peninsula Hotel in Tokyo, the time spent organizing your precious little sartorial gems to see them all on full display is absolutely worth it.

Reed Krakoff Kit Bag

14/11/2011, Accessories, Current Affairs, Handbags, Reed Krakoff

Slightly larger than my python Jason Wu Little Miss Wu bag, my new Reed Krakoff “Kit” bag packs quite a punch. I love the long shoulder strap and the handy handle (too bad you can’t see it in the photo). It fits all my essentials… and then some. It’s my new every day bag!
