Chanel cruise 2015 jackets aren’t they amazing?

Chanel cruise 2015 has officially arrived in stores. I already provided an insight into cruise bags, shoes and jewellery so lets continue with the jackets today. Chanel jackets are very much of a heritage thing of the brand. The iconic boxy, collarless pocket jacket shape was first introduced in 1954 by Coco Chanel and is popular until today! So is there a potential icon within the collection?

Whats your favorite Chanel cruise 2015 handbag?

Its always so exciting when a new Chanel collection hits stores. Sure some pieces have already arrived since early October but the official international launch date for Chanel cruise 2015, the Dubai show, is November 18th so its still ahead of us!!! And one of the things I am looking most forward to is surely the handbags. Which exceptional pieces from the runway were the most beautiful? Which are the most amazing new colors and textures that will arrive for the classic flap and Boy bags?

The little pearl clutch that was presented on the Chanel cruise 2015 Dubai runway is pure perfection. I am really a little jealous of Korean actress Jung Ryeo-Won, who was happy enough to wear it while attending the Chanel fall 2014 couture show, pics style.com

Fake Dior tribal earrings …?

There is a very popular procedure that repeats itself time and time again in fashion industry. An innovative piece is launched by a brand and popularised by media. Sooner or later the market is  flooded with lookalikes, many cheaper but also some at the same or slightly lower price level. So its nothing different with Dior’s iconic tribal earring – you know the one with one pearl on the earlobe and the other behind! The one Alexa Chung wore perfectly well for a Valentino dinner earlier this month.

Alexa bag addiction

Louis Vuitton’s La Petite Malle, you know the trunk shaped minaudière, seems to have set a trend towards boxy little hand bags. For all those, who got a bit disappointed by preorder and waiting list policies as well the significant change between the runway piece and the style that finally became available, I somehow feel that there is a pretty little alternative!

Dior tribal, Dior tee shirt, Dior gum tee shirt, Dior tribale … – Now there is something new on its way!

Having a look at the guests pictures from a party Dior hosted last week at the Guggenheim Museum in NYC it seems that the success of the Dior tribal earrings, which started to be sold  in summer 2013, simply won’t fade. But after some seasons of alterations of the signature Dior double pearl style you won’t believe what a supersingly beautiful new earring style arrives in stores at the moment!

Have you read “How to be Parisian”?

Have you seen the pictures of people camping over night in front of H&M stores in Singapore and Toronto. Its really impressive! As the collection they are queueing for is a heavily branded one I couldn’t help but think about “How to be Parisian”. In this book, published in September 2014, French model Caroline de Maigret calls on people not to wear logos. Don’t wear logos you are not a billboard! Kind of confusing, isn’t it? So what about logos at the moment are they in style or a thing of yesterday?

10 years of H&M designer collaborations

Tomorrow Alexander Wang x H&M, the 10th H&M designer collaboration, is going to hit the H&M online store as well as selected retail stores in an annual event of queueing and website crashes. I already gave my opinion on the topic about a year ago but after a fierce discussion with some friends over lunch today I want to go a little further into details.
