Luxury Brands & Fashion Designer Pronunciations
Chanel not Channel. Versace not Versays. So how the hell do you pronounce A. Lange & Söhne, purveyor of very fine watches? What about Hervé Léger, who is now being designed by Max Azria?

Serge Lutens, Adora Department Store
It’s been a REALLY busy (and productive) week over here at Camp Bryanboy. Thank GOD it’s Saturday. I went to four business meetings yesterday. Can you believe it? A girl’s gotta do what a girl’s gotta do to pay her bills… and all the nice and nifty things she desires.
In between meetings, I visited my favourite luxury emporium ADORA at Greenbelt 5. Click click click!
At Gucci: Chanel, Prada and Sasha Pivovarova
The luxurious House of Gucci recently celebrated its 70th anniversary in Rome. Here’s Natasha Poly, Maryna Linchuk and a glowing Sasha Pivovarova. The question is… is Sasha pregnant?
Louis Vuitton Monogramouflage Lys Bag
Monogramouflage, Louis Vuitton’s latest collaboration with Japanese artist Takashi Murakami, is now available at Louis Vuitton Philippines. They remind me of the monogram denim they did a few years ago. I saw some of the bags at the store and as much as they look cute, I have decided they are not for me.
When one door closes, another one opens. Aussie FASSSSSHHHHHYONNN journalist Patty Huntington bid adieu to News.com.au’s Fully Chic and celebrated American Independence day last week by launching her new fashion blog.
As y’all know, Paris haute couture ended a few days ago. While all the rich bitches of the world (and their token tranny and tag-along lap dogs) are still recovering from stomping around the majestic city of lights (and Le Depot), my Mexican buddy Mauricio and I (in our respective bedrooms in the third world, of course) went through hundreds and hundreds of photos of the fall 2008 couture collections.
Since haute couture is all about fantasy, my friend and I fantasized about being bajillionairesses on a shopping spree. We challenged each other to pick one, just one, outfit from the big couture houses. It has to be something that we love and would personally wear.
We reviewed our selections at the end of the challenge and I noticed I picked out two wedding gowns.
Our conversation went like this:
Me: What do you think of my selections? Be honest. What’s the best one and the worst one? Is it just me or do you also find this season disappointing?

For The Filipino in You
Filipinos, in my opinion, are the most notorious, anal-retentive English nazis on the face of the planet. Even more so than native English speakers themselves who, quite frankly, don’t give a fuck how something is written online as long as they could understand them. Flips, on the other hand, would totally rip you apart in blogs, discussion forums, etc. just to point out the slightest grammar/syntax/spelling mistake you’ve made. It’s that whole “better English = better education = my bushy 3-inch brown dick with a black scrotum is more superior than yours” etc mentality people here have. I know it’s crazy but it’s true. Some Filipinos really do get off on this shit. Trust me when I say that! Ever had someone correct you online? Chances are, that person is a Flip! Anyway, I won’t dwell on that shit but let me tell you… man… I laughed so hard when I saw this announcement from the house of Givenchy.
PS. I love Givenchy and hell, I love Lakshmi Menon. She truly is the most gorgeous woman I’ve ever seen as of late. More on her later.
Louis Vuitton Fall/Winter 2008 Ad Campaign: Eva Herzigova
And what can you say about the latest Louis Vuitton (fall/winter 2008) ad campaign featuring supermodel Eva Herzigova with a Monogramouflage bag?
Christian Dior Autumn/Winter 2008-2009 Haute Couture
Y’all should get down on your knees and worship me because I just got hold of a copy of the fall/winter 2009-2009 Christian Dior haute couture soundtrack! Amazing amazing amazing! I just know I’m gonna play this on my ipod for weeks. Perfect for mincing!

I still need to figure out the track titles. The first song they used was “Aquarius” by Dutch group Within Temptation and the last one was “Lights Go Down” by Basement Jaxx which I *love*. I’ll forever be indebted if you guys can name the 2nd to the last track though. To be quite honest, the good shit starts at 08:53 so fast forward and listen to that.
