Bally, under the direction of designer Pablo Coppola, is on fire!!! I don’t need to explain much with words because these photos from the collection presentation said it all.

MFW: Furla's Color Explosion for FW2015

MFW: Furla’s Color Explosion for FW2015

It has been a crazy four days here in Milan during fashion week. Traffic is horrific, and though it is sunny of late, it also gets real chilly at night, and wearing heels don’t help either (boooo paaaain). But it’s all worth it when I see collections that are truly worth doing all this for...
MFW: Super Fendi, Fall Winter 2015

MFW: Super Fendi, Fall Winter 2015

I’m not surprised anymore when it comes to Fendi, season after season. Because Karl has never failed to disappoint. Each season’s collection combines a lot of technical craftsmanship with creativity and ingenuity integral to the brand’s DNA. This obsession with Karl Lagerfeld never ends– and I’m loving that, keep it coming please! Meet Super Karlito,...

One of the Best Bags of 2015

One of the Best Bags of 2015

From a creative perspective, one of the best bags ever designed and produced this year belongs to Loewe. The Puzzle Bag continues to awe. Its very origamic structure makes it so easy to carry the bag in so many different ways. I have already seen this bag up close a few times and have not...
Where to Buy That Mansur Gavriel Bucket Bag?

Where to Buy That Mansur Gavriel Bucket Bag?

If you are not too particular about the color of the Mansur Gavriel Bucket Bag (which by the way, is sold out worldwide, with the exception of resale shops which sell them for over 2x their original price), I’d like to recommend getting that immaculate white one which is currently available HERE. The Mansur Gavriel...
Kanye West for Addidas?

Kanye West for Addidas?

Seriously? Yes. Do we like it? Gulp. NO. Did I hear fashion critics say they liked it? So I heard! Forget about wearing these flesh- toned bodysuits/ body stockings out in public (unless the sole intention is to get gawked at). I don’t think I can even wear most of them out to work out!...

Face-Off: Saint Laurent Emmanuelle vs. Mansur Gavriel Bucket

Face-Off: Saint Laurent Emmanuelle vs. Mansur Gavriel Bucket

Sorry for the blogging absence as the internet connection was pretty bad the last few days during Pope Francis’ visit in the Philippines– crazy, the mobile network providers were actually asked to disrupt service for the security of the Pope. But it’s all good because his visit was a success and that it was also...
Christmas Gift Idea: Travel with Emirates!

Christmas Gift Idea: Travel with Emirates!

Ever since I began traveling to Europe for fashion weeks and for work, I have been fortunate to have picked the right partner airline for the long haul trip. I’ve always chosen Emirates Airline. I’ve tried 2 other airlines for travel to Milan and to Paris, but nothing has come close to the service I’ve...

Five days to go! Christmas is upon us all. I’m sure you are all busy attending Christmas parties on a nightly basis, with freeflowing gifts being received and getting sent out.

Rustan’s Christmas Wonders: My Gift Ideas (Part I)

Hi everyone! I have not really had a decent “personal” update in the last few months, so please pardon me for throwing it all out here all of a sudden because also all of a sudden, I am experiencing peace and quiet (no work phone calls, no getting stuck in traffic and no work stress)....
