MFW SS 2013: A Bally High!

I was so bowled over when I saw the new collection for Bally this Spring Summer 2013. Creative directors Michael Herz and Graeme Fidler have successful turned this label up to date with the times without disrupting the brand’s very DNA. It just goes to show that Bally is really an expert in leather craftsmanship....

MFW SS 2013: Dolce & Gabbana- A Sicilian Spring- Summer

Dolce & Gabbana really know what works best for their brand and it is looking into their native Italy– Sicily to be exact, that they took inspiration in working on their SS 2013 collection. It’s a very festive collection and is as expected 🙂 Again, colorful prints, festive in time for Spring and for the...

MFW SS 2013: Fendi Bags Some Winners!

The Fendi venue was a new one and I was honestly bowled over by the length of the runway. It was sooo looooong! Anyway, at the other end of the runway where the models are supposed to come out, there was this huge silver- gray ball. So where will the models come out? It was...

MFW SS 2013: Tod’s New and Modified Bags

Today was a craaaazy loooong day which began at 10am and went on until a few hours ago. I was literally running from one venue to another and I was honestly grateful to have the Tod’s Miky bag throughout the day– having a big bag for fashion week is really a must. Let me reiterate...

MFW SS 2013: Prada Floral Orientale

The Devil Wears Prada’s editor-in-chief Miranda Priestly came to mind when Prada’s first model took to the runway. Florals. For Spring. Yes, groundbreaking. I think it’s safe to assume that many instantly think of a Spring bouquet- type of florals when it comes to Spring prints. Miuccia changed that tonight at her SS 2013 collection...

MFW SS 2013: Emporio Armani Purely Natural

I left for the show a little early (kudos to me haha) and in the process I had left my phone. D-uh?! Emporio Armani went for a more neutral palette this time with touches of gold and bronze. Cognac and cinnamon hues were also dominant shades in the collection, further emphasizing the wearer’s natural beauty....

MFW SS2013: Fay– 60s in 2013

It is the first season of Fay to have a show during Milan Fashion Week (thank you for inviting me, Fay) and I was pleased to have made the show in the nick of time (traffic at Manzoni was insane earlier). When I saw the first look, I immediately thought of Ursula Andress in Dr....

NYFW SS2013: Victoria Beckham’s Modern Classy Chic

Pretty sharp looks for Victoria Beckham’s SS2013 collection of blacks, whites, a beige or two, and one dominant bright color, tangerine. Oh and hold your breath: there was also the presence of flats– by Manolo Blahnik, of course :). The models were sent walking down the runway in menswear- inspired buckle shoes, and cuffed thong...

NYFW SS2013: Alexander Wang 3 Ways

Alexander Wang’s SS 2013 bags are very interesting. And functionality was obviously considered alongside design to make it aesthetically pleasing, sleek, and useful. It’s a clutch! No… it’s a small tote! No, its a shoulder bag! Doesn’t this bag just take care of the “day-to-night” situation? Or the 2-bag situation. The attached bag is still...

The Curse of the Hideous CelebriBoots

Oh my. Kim Kardashian take off those I-don’t-care-if-they’re-designer-boots right now!!! If you are a oft- photographed person or a celebrity, you should know how to choose what you wear wisely. In Kim’s case, this will have to be my advice: never ask for your boyfriend Kanye West’s advice. Woman, you are your own person. But...

Spanish Ballet Flats

You’ve heard of London Sole, Repetto, but you have not (and I’m almost certain) heard about Kokua. After googling, I only found one real answer about Kokua, but there was also no address provided. Anyway, as I found out from the shop keeper, Kokua does not exist online, nor do they have an email address....
