TODS SMALL DOUBLE T SHOULDER BAG

Other Brands

Tods-Small-Double-T-Shoulder-Bag

Look who’s back with a sweet surprise. Tod’s is featuring its T Shoulder Bag once more but this time in a small shoulder bag version. If you remember, this Italian brand already released the said bag not long ago but in a mini cross body version.

If you want to talk about refined and sophisticated fashion taste, this Small Double T Shoulder Bag is the bag to go for it features a fine grainy black leather with maroon-hued trims that makes the leather stand out. The silver-tone hardware and silver-tone chain also makes a bright contrast against the backdrop of dark leather.

Although small in size, this bag is roomy enough to hold all your essential from office, to lunch breaks and to dinner dates as well. It features a magnetic fastening, snap-buttoned back pocket and an internal zipped pocket.

Comparing with the first version, the newer Double T bag is curvier, there is also a handle on the top and it features a chained link. The older one on the other hand is more squared and has a structural design.

It measures 8 x 10.5 x 4.5 (H x W x D) inches and is priced $1995 USD or €1400 via MyTheresa.

Tiffany & Co. ropes in Reed Krakoff for its new accessories and homeware collection

Jewelry & Watches

Tiffany-Co-Reed-Karakoff-collaboration


The new collection at Tiffany’s will retain its original touch with Krakoff adding his creative twist to it. So purchasing out of the new collection will come with the added creative touches of Krakoff without compromising on the feel of being a Tiffany product. Though jewelry and watches will not be a part of his kitty, Krakoff will add his creative inputs to the remaining range of products including handbags, sunglasses, tabletops, and apparel and writing accessories and design director Francesca Amfitheatrof will simultaneously continue to work on the jewelry and watch line. Both Krakoff and Amfitheatrof will report to Tiffany CEO, Frederic Cumenal.

This is not the first time the brand has included an outside creative partner on its collection. Early this year, Tiffany also welcomed former creative director at Vogue, Grace Coddington on board. The collection which is a semi deviation from its line of established products is set to launch in 2017. Will the partnership between the two continue post the launch, is for time to tell. For now this sensational amalgamation of design minds looks intriguing and something to watch out for!

Ulyana Sergeenko’s Couture Fall/ Winter 2016-2017 Show Was a Lesson in Russian History

Fashion

The incredibly talented Russian designer Ulyana Sergeenko came at us full force but with a ready to wear touch for the Couture fall/winter 2016-2017 Paris Fashion Week show. Off the bat we already can point out that fringes in the stringy, soft swaying manner are to be a huge hit on the runway and a trend to be looking for when creating your own day or nightwear.

Ulyana Sergeenko Couture Fall/ Winter 2016-2017 Collection

The designer’s creations often take us on a tour of Russian history and over the past nine years we have seen motifs that point towards everything from the Orient Express to the Soviet architecture of St. Petersburg, among many others. She has incorporated traditional ornamentation from Russian minority groups as well as bringing us now to something less traditional and closer to the heart, fashion statements from the childhood seen in the somewhat utopian ‘60s Russia.

It is definitely worthy of praise when a designer can take elements of her own world and recreate it into a wearable piece of artistry, weaving into every strand the love for country, memory of days gone and hope for a better future.

Ulyana Sergeenko Couture Fall/ Winter 2016-2017 Collection

While the Ulyana Sergeenko Couture fall 2016 collection is rather toned down, that is not a bad thing at all; Sergeenko brings in new sensibilities and an emphasis on the professional instead, lovingly including everything from tweed pantsuits to sporty Lurex bodysuits sporting her brand symbol. She goes for the overtly sexy with the inclusion of garters and thigh-high hosiery, while it remains clear that showing off the breasts under a thin layer of cloth is still very much in the couture agenda.

We don’t really understand the girdle-garter combination, nor the bared breasts, but the collection for the most part is all about Soviet Russia and there is little we do not love about that. After all, art, high fashion and history make for a pretty impressive combination when done so correctly.

What we probably notice best towards the middle of the collection is the use of natural motifs, ranging from mountains overlooking the seas to deer among the trees, playing with the warm and the cooler hues to create pieces that even Babushka would be proud of. We see botanical imagery as well that inspired the jacquard that subtly appear on the skirt suits, while the country’s colder weather is easily the statement of the collection once we notice the very traditionally thick ribbed knit tights that pooled at the knees and ankles.

Those loafers, though are probably the highlight of each creation and very much embody the red diploma receiving schoolgirl who enjoys working hard on her grades in university. Native handiwork is also apparent, along with the highly time consuming mosaic furs that are fully reminiscent of the Soviet needlepoint, humbly found in the homes of the people who resided there in the ‘60s especially.

Then again, those high necked column dresses are probably what will be showcased most on the red carpets in the coming days so that is certainly something to be watching for. Overall, a very good collection from our Russian favorite!

CHANEL PARIS IN ROME GOLD METAL FLAP BAG

Other Brands

Chanel-Paris-in-Rome-New-Clutch-Bag

Freshly baked and just arrived at the boutiques – a complete new affordable flap bag. Want to know more?

V Lai bought this bag at Neiman Marcus a few days ago, here’s what she has shared: ‘I just found out this from Chanel site after I bought the bag from Neiman Marcus at Scottsdale. The size is small and light enough for me as my GST hurts my shoulder very much. The price is attractive compare to other Chanel flap too!’.

The Chanel Gold Metal Flap Bag is somewhere between a WOC and a Medium Classic Flap Bag. You know, there are always days when you need a smaller bag, but an evening WOC is just too tiny. This has the perfect size.

Crafted from durable calfskin and adorned with gold metal hardware, the bag is quilted and chic. It features a beautiful iconic CC logo on the front and its made with the comparable chain as the boy bags.

For those that are interested, here are the details:

Chanel Gold Metal Flap Bag
Style code: A93427
Size: 6.7’ x 11’ x 2.2’ inches
Price: $2900 USD with VAT

Adidas Originals NMD R1 Whiteout-Blackout Pack

Designer Shoes

IMAGE: ADIDAS

Depending on what side of the fence you’re on, it’s going to be a big yay or a huge nay as far as these next interpretations of Adidas Originals’ limited edition NMD R1sneakers are concerned. Covered literally with words ‘The Brand With The Three Stripes‘ in English and various other languages, it will come in both black and white variations and according to END, will be released online on their e-commerce site on 8 July 2016.

My gut feel? It won’t be long before Adidas Singapore announces their availability locally, and it might also pop out at various speciality stores like Pedder on Scotts andSeek. No word yet on the price, so do stay tuned for more updates.
