Vince Shearling Jacket Fall Winter 2010

Vince Shearling Jacket Fall Winter 2010

Shearling is, without question, one of the biggest must-haves this fall. Everyone sent a shearling look down the fall/winter 2010 runways from the gorgeous aviator jackets at Burberry Prorsum, to Etro, Marc Jacobs, Unzipped-inspired House of Holland, Christopher Kane and yes, Celine (I love the coat).

Anyhoo, I visited the Vince showroom right beside Bryant Park earlier in February during New York fashion week.  To me, Vince is an American brand that makes excellent basics. I’m sure many of us have a tee, a cardigan or a cashmere sweater from them. Imagine my surprise when I saw this shearling jacket. It’s super, super soft and super lightweight. I fell in love with it instantly.

It’s cute, no? I think it would be a great addition to someone’s wardrobe. It’s one of those pieces you can wear endlessly, especially in cold weather.

You may buy the jacket at Net-a-Porter or Shopbop. Shopbop, btw, offers FREE shipping anywhere in the world.

You’re welcome.

Alexander McQueen Underwear [something for the boys]

Alexander McQueen Underwear

I don’t think I’ll ever get over Alexander McQueen’s passing. It’s so bittersweet that my first Alexander McQueen show was also his last. With womenswear collections just around the corner, I’m very curious what his successor, Sarah Burton, will come up under his name.

Meanwhile, have you seen McQueen’s first underwear collection for men?

They are now
available for sale at Oki-Ni

BROdarte versus Acne

18/07/2010, Acne, Rodarte, Shopping

BROdarte versus Acne

It’s Sunday 4:55AM and I’m window-shopping around teh interwebs. I saw this interesting knit sweater by Swedish brand Acne. At US$234, I thought the price point ain’t that bad. 

Acne Sweater

Compare it to this Rodarte piece from last season. Or was it last, last season? Fashion moves so fast these days I have no sense of time whatsoever.

Rodarte Sweater

In spite of the massive online coverage received by BROdarte a few months back, why am I surprised Opening Ceremony is still selling that piece? Oh yes, the $2,800 price tag. DUH! Ooops, my bad.

Meanwhile, I’ve been told that Rodarte pieces, especially the knits, are hand-made. So…

Point to ponder.

Speaking of Prada, have you seen this cute backpack (US$620) on the Prada website? I need this! It should be available to order soon.

I also want the printed camouflage saffiano tote but it's US$2,550 + tax. Yikes!

Miu Miu Store Florence, Italy

The Miu Miu store in Florence is located on the ground floor of the Hotel Savoy where I’m currently staying. Even though men’s Miu Miu was discontinued a long time ago, Miu Miu remains close to my heart because of all the beautiful, chic things that are available there.
