Two seasons ago, my friend Jason Wu gifted me with my very own Daphne Bag in a rich, cherry red color. It’s become one of my favorite and most practical bags. I really love how you can turn this shoulder bag into a really elegant clutch by just tucking in the straps. It’s very roomy and the leather is oh so buttery soft and smooth. Despite its compact size, it fits all my essentials. How chic is this version, in pastel mint?

This is a bonus clip with the two of them discussing questions from Bergdorf Goodman twitter followers.

Greetings from Basel! Calvin Klein flew me to Switzerland as one of their guests for this year’s BaselWorld exhibition. To those of you who are not familiar of BaselWorld, it’s the biggest watch and jewelry fair in the world. It’s my first time to attend the fair. Don’t be misled by the word ‘fair’ though. BaselWorld 2013 was set up to resemble a giant shopping mall with some of the biggest watch and jewelry brands setting up conceptualized “booths” that looked like their actual retail stores. It was a no-expense-barred event and it was fascinating to see what everyone came up with.
It was lovely reuniting with familiar and friendly faces in addition to the Calvin Klein team and Executives: my ultra chic friend Lily Kwong flew in from Gabon, Laura Burdese, Calvin Klein tumblr contributor Hanneli Mustaparta and Ulrich Grimm who is the Creative Director of both Men’s & Women’s Shoes and Accessories. Rita Ora performed at the celebratory party in the evening and my beloved DJ Mike Nouveau spinned at the festivities.
The new Calvin Klein watches and jewelry collection features clean lines and characteristic curved metal surfaces. Some of the highlights from the 2013 line include the ck dress watch, the unisex ck eager timepiece, the ck classic watch that has been newly redesigned for 2013 and ck undulate, a key jewelry offering for the season including two pendant necklaces, rings and delicate earrings that showcase sleek and rounded shapes. Overall, the new collection can be described as sleek, elegant and ultra functional. Totally in synch with the brand’s modern and minimalist DNA. Very Calvin Klein.

As you guys already know, I skipped the Fall/Winter 2013 shows in Europe due to filming engagements in Los Angeles. Now that I’m back home in New York, I thought I’d take the time out to view everything that I’ve missed. I recently popped by the Saint Laurent Paris showroom uptown the other day for a quick re-see. As always, it’s so different to see the garments up close. I found Hedi Slimane’s collection ultra luxe, extremely well-made, not to mention highly wearable. And relevant! I love the youthful energy and vibe. Some of the pieces are even downright unisex! My personal favourite items include: the white rabbit fur jacket (women’s) and coat (men’s) dyed to resemble ermine fur, the luscious mohair cardigans, the unisex shoes (they released a number of ultra classic yet edgy black biker boots, one of which came even came embellished), the mammoth salmon fox fur chubby coat, and a wide variety of strong jackets and statement capes.

This, my friends, is prima-facie evidence of my obsessive/addictive personality. I really should be ashamed, no? Christopher Kane is Mr. Prints Charming alright. I somehow amassed a small coterie of this season’s paint brush stroke-printed tops. I like to dress them down with a pair of black shorts (preferably leather) or dress them up with a slick blazer and black trousers. He also did a few ultra cool printed shorts. However, with any addiction or vice, there’s always that fine line that you simply do not cross or else there’s no turning back! Remember kids, clothes are better than crack…
