CHANEL FALL WINTER RUNWAY BAG

Categories:Other Brands


Just when you think Karl Lagerfeld is going to zig, he zags. The legendary creative director has spent half a decade showing his Chanel collections in ever-more-grandiose stage settings in the Grand Palais, ranging from an arctic tundra complete with trucked-in iceberg chunk to a Chanel-themed supermarket filled with branded items that weren't even part of the collection. For Chanel Fall 2016, though, Lagerfeld took the brand to the opposite extreme.

Chanel's simple, pared-down, front-row-only runway show where people simply sat atop couture era-inspired gold chairs and watched more than 90 looks pass in front of them. Like the show itself, the clothes and bags didn't have any over-arching pop cultural theme to guide their aesthetic details; instead, they appeared to be influenced by the creation of clothing in and of itself, with big leather stitches adorning some bags' gussets and plenty of work-intensive tweeds. The collection's novelty minaudiere, which has become an every-show signature for the brand, also pointed in that direction: it took the form of an oversized spool of thread, complete with a Chanel logo charm hanging from its loose end.

Lagerfeld's intent seemed to be to draw attention back to the clothes and accessories themselves and the immaculate craftsmanship that goes into them, and as he usually does, he succeeded.

Imagine if you would, a 30 cm ruler, you know, the type we used in school when we were kids. Actually, it was more like the ones our teachers used. On our knuckles. But this post isn’t about that; it’s about the ruler and Chanel’s smallest bags from their new Fall-Winter 2016 collection, which should be in local stores by now.

If you recall, Karl Lagerfeld had some models coming down the runway with tinyBoy Chanel bags attached to their belts, and given the measurements that I’ve got, you could stack 3 of these bags on each other and they wouldn’t even reach the top of the ruler. Yes, that’s how tiny they are. Measuring just 9.5 cm in height by 15 cm across, they could be (but correct me if I’m wrong) Chanel’s smallest Boy Chanelbags ever made, with a depth of just 7 cm.

And because I’m a huge fan of #smallerthansmall, I say yay since it’s exactly the type of thing I would want in my collection, a tiny clutch for a night out, mostly hand-held though you could also wear it across the shoulder via its metal chainlink sling. Priced at SGD5590 and SGD9160 for the two you see above placed top and bottom respectively, I’m guessing the latter’s price could be due in part to the intense braided tweed detailing that’s happening on the front flap.

For those of you who prefer something a little more classic but still fun, there’s the F/W16 Flap Bag that comes with a double peace sign. Also tiny (17 cm across by 10 cm in height), this stunningly red lambskin leather number will set you back by justSGD4450. Last, but by no means least, one of the novelty bags of the season, a ‘sewing box’ resin minaudière that I covered previously here. I didn’t have its retail price then, but for those who are keen, it is priced at SGD15,860.

A little talk about the upcoming seasonal bag. Here’s one to consider – painted in white and adorned with quilted pattern on the cover except for the flap. The flap is made in soft and smooth leather. Well, it has everything you need to flaunt.

This Boy Bag is definitely a stunner, all right. If you notice the fine elements on this piece such as the intricate weave and gold hardware, you’ll love it even more.

What’s orange, quilted and fabulous? This bag. Exactly our thoughts.

And yet again another piece that’s reminiscent of Chevron quilt! What are your thoughts on this bag?

Chanel-Métiers-d’Art-Pre-Fall-2016-Runway-Bag-Collection-Preview-2-3

We’re not so sure about this piece, but we know that it really is extended and more elongated compared to the usual flaps with Mademoiselle locks. Hmmm…do you dig this design?

Balenciaga Spring / Summer 2015 Runway Bag Collection

Categories:Other Brands

Introducing the Balenciaga Spring/Summer 2015 Runway Bag Collection. The collection features one bag design, a foldable clutch bag that includes a metal bar and chain handles. The bag was presented in Black and Pink colors on the runway. It was shown in Calfskin, Embellished Calfskin and Crocodile. It is a simple yet modern design, which is always visible in Alexander Wang’s creations; however, the bag much like last season’s  Cable Shopping Tote is a bit impractical.  The chain link that appeared on the clutches were also present on bracelets.

Unfortunately, there were no stand out statement accessories on the runway, at least last season there were the Balenciaga Name Plate belts presented. However, there were gorgeous long beautiful floor length coats that appeared in soft moveable fabrics, this was a different take from the normally rigid and boxy jackets that Wang has presented previously for Balenciaga.

GREY ON GREY DURING NYFW

Categories:Fashion

song-of-style-grey-skirt-aquazzura-amazon-heels-2

I showcased this outfit last week but wanted to share again since it was one of my favorite New York Fashion Week outfits. It was a quite warm day in New York and people kept asking me whether I was hot or not wearing asweater over a shirt but actually this shirt is attached to this sweater! I love this top because it gives you the illusion of layering minus the sweatiness. song-of-style-aquazzura-amazon-heels

I styled the top with its matching skirt from BCBG but instead of pairing it with ankle boots, I put my spin to it and styled it with my new favorite Aquazzura Amazon lace-up heels and a fun Dannijo necklace. song-of-style-bcbg-grey-sweater-shirt-skirtsong-of-style-grey-sweater-white-shirt-grey-skirt-aquazzura-heels
