So what are the coolest mini tote bags 2015?

Celine nano luggage tote – still a good choice?

Last week I was amazed to read one of the best articles I had seen in the US Vogue since quite some time. The topic was #itbag2015 (check out the full article “It bag hall of fame: A history of the most coveted accessories”). Here the author shows honestly how the industry made use of the fact that bags are the accessories that are closest to a womans heart thus turning fashion industry into an almost only bag business. Yes there are the several decade old icons, like Kelly, Birkin, LV Speedy or Chanel flap but thats not where it stops. Even after 2000 new It bags evolved – one of them the Celine nano luggage tote. Let’s track the development of the Celine nano luggage tote a little bit to find out more about the bag!

Prada flatforms seem to be one of the brands icons. Only very recently blogger Leandra Medine chose wearing a pair of Prada creepers while attending Stella McCartney’s pre-fall 2015 presentation.

Are aviator frame glasses a good choice?

Woman wearing glasses in a fashion context still is a rarely touched topic. In men its not that bad when they wear signature glasses, but for woman one of the safest advices seems to be preferring contact lens for most occasions. Anyway, I guess that there are more than a lot woman like me, who do not really have a love affair with contact lens or at least really don’t want to wear them permanently. So besides the discussion of trends in the field of bags and shoes and … I feel its high time to start a discussion about trends in the field of glasses!

Prada creepers – Are they still trending?

Flat platform shoes or flatforms in fashion slang are definitely back on the trend radar for 2015.

The Stella McCartney Elyse platform brogues were one of the most popular shoes during fashion month last September. However, what about the brand that brought the flatform back on the radar? What about the Prada creepers?

Stella McCartney Elyse & the revival of the platform shoes

Platforms are a somewhat strange fashion trend. Let’s be honest the look is not really flattering and its not that easy to walk in them. Despite of these drawbacks its a style that was repopularized in the late 90ies and early 2000s by pop groups like Spice Girls and never really faded afterwards. While in the 90ies the platform sneakers were the ultimate piece, later Christian Louboutin adopted the platform in order to elevate his heels and now classic Oxford lace up shoes received a platform treatment!
