LOUIS VUITTON ALMA BLACK SILVER EPI BAG

Categories:Louis Vuitton

louis-vuitton-alma-black-silver-epi-bag

The original Louis Vuitton Alma Bag was created by Gaston Vuitton, who named the bag for the ‘Alma Bridge’, a span that connects two fashionable Paris neighborhoods.

With a history of more than half century, the Alma Bag is recession-proof, a true iconic and 100% timeless. Throughout the years, Louis Vuitton has created many different versions of the Alma, but the shape and the basic elements remained the same like the handles. And today, they reveal the contemporary version, crafted from Epi leather, but in black and silver color.

This mix of shades creates a special shiny effect – it’s very smooth and attractive. And because of this, the silver hardware truly stands out, especially the iconic LV lock.

The interior comes with one large compartment, with patch and phone pockets. Open the bag with the double zipper; the opening is wide for easy access.

Céline Sticks with Very Simple, Céline Soft Bags for Paris Fashion Week

Categories:Other Brands

Presenting the Celine Fall/Winter Runway Bag Collection. A variety of bag styles were seen in the runway made of leather and suede materials. The colors used this season are mostly basics like Black, Blue, Red, White and Brown. Flap bags in different shapes are included in the collection. Rounded flap bags comes in shoulder straps with contrasting color, while square shaped flap bags comes in leather and thin chain straps. Belt bags and shoulder bags with knotted straps were also part of the collection.

Celine’s Phoebe Philo was in a relaxed mood for the brand’s fall-winter 2016 collection. The designer featured slouchy staples including long vests, menswear shirts with defined collars and loose trousers. The looks are paired with a turtleneck or oversized sweater in serene hues of black, ivory, khaki and yellow.
When the Celine woman looks for some structure, a leather coat tied at the waist or fit and flare silhouette like the look modeled by Maartje Verhoef prevails. Finishing the look, strappy sandals and low heels that look like slippers at first glance are the footwear of choice. As for handbags, small satchels tie at the waist and envelope styles are options for fall.

  “I came about it through wearing it,” saidPhoebe Philo. “It’s always that.” She was standing backstage going through the ritual—or is it torture?—of answering press questions. She was wearing a black boiled wool midi dress over a pair of white flared trousers. And that was it, really: the essence of the elongated fit and flare silhouette she showed in many variations for Fall. Oddly, it didn’t look like Fall, so much, though. There were walkable, practical leather sandals on bare feet, glimpsed through the slits in the kick-flared pants, plenty of sunshiny lemon yellow and sleeveless dresses, too. But do seasons matter these days? As another designer at the helm of a globally distributed brand remarked recently, “It’s always summer somewhere in the world where we’re selling.” But it seemed as if this collection was looking for what matters in a more fundamental way, too. This was a much more stripped-back, more utilitarian, go-with-the-flow Céline than we’ve been used to seeing. Though there were conceptual shapes—a big black tweed bubble of a top, which at first appeared to have only one armhole, led into a sequence of long shirts and tunics worn over the same shape of loose, very nice pants, with variations on khaki raincoats interspersed within them. The reiteration made it a more relaxed affair to watch—something to absorb at leisure rather than crane anxiously to keep up with. Quite deliberately so, it seems.
“It’s a busy world, and I find I have this idea of stillness with Céline,” Philo said, adding that designing, to her, is “a constant tussle.” Calming down the creative turmoil for a season seemed to give Céline the chance to re-own the template of shirts, well-cut trousers, and smart utility coats which Phoebe Philo established here to such success. Apart from the new bags—and there were many, some with soft, scarf-like knotted straps—it was good enough to allow customers to contemplate the strengths of the house.
Celine-Fall-Winter-2016-Bag-Runway-Bag-Collection-2 Celine is such a classic act when it comes to the world of handbags. Ever fashion-forward without sacrificing sophistication and functionality, this is why women all over the world adore the Celine bags. Always opting for bags with feminine touches and soft, muted colors, Celine bags are a perfect complement for women who wants to add style to their everyday look without sacrificing their own fashion sense. With more wearable bags being released by this fashion brand for each season, it’s no wonder that the Celine Fall Winter 2016 Bag Runway Collection kept making women obsessed with its wide array of beautiful hand bags. Take for example this soft-hued bag. Celine-Fall-Winter-2016-Bag-Runway-Bag-Collection It looks adorable in all its angles despite the fact that it is minimalist in design. This is perfect to take with you as you stroll along the park or go to that favorite coffee shop of yours to grab your daily shot of espresso.

Chanel Flap Wallets

Categories:Other Brands

Chanel-Flap-Wallet-Black-Lambskin

Your first Chanel Classic Flap Bag, your first bag crush. You are warned, the addiction can spread very quickly – you adore the leather, the CC signature, the front flap and everything about it. Before you know it, you will start hunting for more, like a hungry female lion looking for food.

You remember the moment when you got your first Chanel bag? It’s an incredible experience, just like love at first sight. You get the chance to touch the leather, oh gosh, so adorable. And you love it so much that your start overprotecting it, just like a baby. So after use, you carry the bag back to the original box, safe and sound. Only then you can sleep with peace in mind.
If you start falling in love, it’s hard to ignore the feeling and it’s hard to turn your back on something that’s irresistible. Suddenly, bags and wallets without the ‘authentic CC’ logo are not your favorite dish anymore.
Occasionally you wander on Chanel website, to check whether there is an update, and you followed up checking on Bragmybag, to see whether you can find something fresh and of course the prices.
If you adore the Chanel Flap Bags, then I am pretty sure that you will love what we will be sharing next. It has all the elements that you can expect from the Classic Flap Bag, but without the interwoven chain. It’s not a WOC, but the Classic Chanel Flap Wallet.

What can be cuter? Imagine this, you are carrying the Chanel Classic Flap Bag in black caviar. You walk down the main streets, doing the usual thing, you know – shopping.

chanel-double-flap-wallet-pink-3

Now you’re standing at the cashier, ready to pay. To get your credit card, you need to grab your Chanel Flap Wallet inside your Chanel Jumbo Classic Flap Bag. It’s like there is a mini Classic Flap Bag inside your Jumbo Classic Flap Bag, that’s simply gorgeous!
The Chanel Flap Wallet is made with lambskin or caviar. Choose black if you want to invest in a timeless accessory. If you already own a Classic Flap Bag in caviar, then perhaps its time to enjoy the luxurious feeling that only the lambskin can provide. Put your hands on the super soft leather. The Chanel Flap Wallet has also back pocket (we told you that it got all the elements of the Classic Flap Bag).

But we all know that Chanel is addictive, the obsessions grow as fast as a virus. Once you are in the shop and you’ve picked your favorite bag, your eyes will start looking at other bags, wallets and pouches, consciously or unconsciously.

And because we receive a lot of questions about Chanel Wallets, we thought it’s about time to write a review about it. And of course, this article couldn’t happen without Winni. By the way, if you haven’t read her journey at our previous post, which is a ‘must read’: ‘The Shopping Guide in Europe’.

Chanel-Wallet-Bi-Fold-Grey-Calfskin

Today, we are going to talk about the Classic Chanel Wallets, the bi-fold. It looks quite similar to the Chanel WOC, the flap is covering the entire front. Also embellished with a CC logo.
The quality of the leather can be felt with your hands, its much more luxurious than a regular wallet and of course you pay a lot more for it. The leather available is calfskin or lambskin. The calfskin is grained, so you can feel the bubbles when touching with your hands. It’s also much more durable.
The lambskin is super soft and nice. But it’s less durable, my advice for wallets is always to pick lambskin. The wallet is usually hidden inside your bag, which is basically very safe from scratches and accidents.Chanel-Wallet-Bi-Fold-Interior

Grimes on InStyle UK October 2016 CoverGrimes on InStyle UK October 2016 Cover

Singer Grimes graces the October 2016 cover of InStyle UK. The fashion glossy celebrates its 15th anniversary this year and launches four covers. Photographed byNhu Xuan Hua, the blonde shows off the more artistic side of fashion in the designs of Stella McCartney, J.W. Anderson and Acne Studios. From puffer jackets to dreamy sheer gowns, Grimes serves avant-garde looks in the spread.

In her interview, Grimes tells British Instyle about dealing with anxiety whenperforming live. “Playing live for me is not that natural. I mean I’m not a trained musician,’ she continues. ‘In 2015 all the guitar parts on set were my worst nightmare. Before every show I was like ‘Oh god’. I had to stop drinking so I could do the guitar part.’ Hasn’t drinking helped with her anxiety? ‘Well I was only doing it before the show to prevent the panic attacks. I’ve always had them – I always think I am having a heart attack. And I would be on stage crouching behind the keyboard thinking, I can’t leave, I can’t leave. I think quitting drinking has made me have less anxiety overall.”

MUST READ: GOSHA RUBCHINSKIY TO LAUNCH FIRST FRAGRANCE, CARA DELEVINGNE FRONTS CAMPAIGN FOR WOMEN'S HEALTH AWARENESS

Categories:Fashion

These are the stories making headlines on Monday.

Gosha Rubchinskiy teams up with Comme des Garçons for debut fragrance
The Russian menswear designer is working with Comme des Garçons (who support his eponymous label) on a debut fragrance that could be hitting shelves as soon as next month, according to sources. What do you think the enigmatic eau will smell like? Sound off in the comments below. {WWD}

Cara Delevingne fronts campaign to promote gynecological health awareness
The model is the new face of Lady Garden, a British campaign run by a group of women that includes her sister, Chloe, who founded the Gynecological Cancer Fund after experiencing a scare with a pre-cancerous cell. In addition to fronting the campaign, Delevingne also appears on the cover of The Sunday Times Style magazine wearing a Lady Garden sweatshirt that is available atTopshop, with thirty percent of each sale going to the fund. "She was very brave and spoke about it," says the model, referring to her older sister. "It takes a lot of courage to talk about things like this. I think women need to be braver about it because otherwise people can be affected." {WWD}

Marc Jacobs shakes up his spring 2017 show time and location

Instead of returning to his usual show venues (the Park and Lexington Avenue armories) after mixing things up at the Ziegfeld Theatre last season, the designer has announced that he will be staging his spring 2017 runway show at the Hammerstein Ballroom. Jacobs's show is usually the very last one on the last day of NYFW, but this season he's also moving it back to a 2pm time slot. What sort of daytime antics does the designer have up his (very stylish) sleeve? Only time will tell. {WWD}

Turns out luxury shoppers aren't Good Samaritans
In a recent study conducted in Paris, social scientists sought to determine how environmental cues affect people's inclination to offer help by staging women exhibiting obvious need of assistance. Volunteers outside designer boutiques — including Chanel, Prada and Versace — wore crutches and dropped their belongings while others asked to borrow a cellphone, or temporarily watch someone in a wheelchair. The results?  While 77.5 percent of shoppers in "ordinary" stores pitched in, only 35 percent of luxury clients did the same.Quel dommage. {Fortune}

How social media took down the fashion show
It's been said time and time again: With the advent of social media, designers and brands are now looking for their show/party/social gathering of any kind to become a viral hit, doing away with the established proceeding of the traditional fashion show. "Designers are now having to build brands,” said Laurie DeJong, the owner of LDJ Productions, New York Fashion Week's production company. "It's no longer only about the color or the shape of the clothes, it's the overall world of the brand." {Glossy}

When's the last time you paid full-price for Gap?
Probably a long time, right? That's because the retail group (which includesBanana Republic, Athleta and Old Navy) along with a newly revampedAbercrombie & Fitch are both suffering from a discount rut. "Gap's out-the-door price was 31 percent lower than the full price, and Abercrombie's out-the door price was 25 percent lower than full price," reads a new report by Credit Suisse. Factors like the rise of fast-fashion stores — which offer customers trendy styles on the cheap — and quality of merchandise contribute to the retailer's dependance on slashing prices. {Business Insider} 

Jason Wu partners with The Woolmark Company
The Australian non-profit organization announced Monday that the designer has been appointed as an ambassador for Merino wool, which will feature prominently in his upcoming spring 2017 collection. (Yes, you read that correctly — wool for spring.) "Merino wool has always played an integral role in my designs," said Wu via press release. "Partnering with The Woolmark Company really allowed me to further explore and develop wool for summer. What my collection does is push the boundaries with conventional seasons, creating year-round luxurious pieces." {Fashionista Inbox}
