I really like this black canvas tote in woven linen and black calf leather from Little Liffner. It’s the perfect bag for the summer. Canvas is such a beautiful material to combine with leather. The combination up-lifts the most simple summer looks and makes them just perfect. This tote, ‘The Tote all-mighty’ is also available in croco-embossed and calf skin leather and you find them both here.
Couldn’t, and wouldn’t (!) resist any of these bags from the Céline Pre-Fall 2014 collections. So obvious and such a easy target to go for, I know, but however Phoebe Philo knows how to create perfection – and how to get my cravings going. I would be surprised whenever I get sick and tired of her design…. I am actually wondering when I am about to stop nagging about Céline. But for now, I settle with the most fabulous bags ever. Top of my wish list? Even if it wasn’t a bag from Céline? It’s a python or crocodile luggage. I want embossed leather, preferable slight patent. Dream bag? An Hermès Birkin of course…. Black alligator leather with golden details.
There are some great pieces in the Hermès S/S13 collection. Among many I have picked out some favorites. The oversized leather jacket in lamb skin are one of them as well as the shorts in crocodile chiffre, shaded jade or cobalt. Hermès creative director Christophe Lemaire was inspired by a luxurious traveller on a journey in the East, which we could spot on the runway with the models carrying leather backpacks over their sheer dresses as well as the mosaic prints in different pieces.
Just spotted this beautiful crocodile leather tote from Lanvin at Luisa Via Roma. A perfect everyday bag. Love the crocodile leather combined with the smooth calf-skin and the brass details. Very lady-like. Old lady on Upper East like.
Clare Waight Keller has created a very Chloé-ish collection for this fall. I really am fond of the current Spring and Summer 2013 collection and had high hopes on this one, and she delivered. As always, a lot of Chloé-ish details, like the ruffled details on the sleeves, the skirts and dresses as well as the waisted belts that creates that beautiful Chloé silhouette.
…is crocodile embossed bags for the moment. Especially bags from Givenchy. This clutch is one of the favourites, among the Pandora and Antigona bag. As in this picture, the croco-embossed clutch risen the whole outfit. The fuzzy knit and the black leather skirt creates a perfect combination with the bag – street style as it’s best. The idea of using different materials – but all in the same colour – makes this outfit perfect.
The bags from the Lanvin RTW Spring and Summer collection 2013 are amazing! Black and white boxy leather clutches and shoulder bags with gold details are hanging on the models shoulders and in their hands. I love how they complete the runway looks in such perfect way. The vibes are truly glam chic as well as art-deco-style with the wood details as well as the material mix. I have never before been any particular into Lanvin leather goods (too many bows and too….cute) but this coming season will be a big exception.
It is freakishly cold right now and at the moment my biggest problem is to find clothes that keep me warm! Yes, I know, huge problem right? But it is. There are no cool or stylish outerwear that keeps me warm, nore shoes… Well, maybe there are but I am not in the mood for it. Speaking of outerwear, I just spotted these two gorgeous pieces from the Alexander Wang Resort 2013 collection. They just recently arrived at Browns Fashion and don’t you just love them? The bomber is way too cold for these temperatures, but it will look great for spring. Although the leather croco-embossed gilet is perfect for now! If you layer the vest to some chunky knits or maybe some fur. Anyway, Wang’s collections are hot stuff right now! Especially when him turning the Creative Director of Balenciaga. And that is…intriguing.
