Louis Vuitton Cruise Petite Malle

Categories:Louis Vuitton

Louis Vuitton just had an amazing Cruise 2017 collection. The theme? Brazil. And what a beautiful collection it is. Though the bags featured are still something that would require research, let me show you what’s up and running on the brand’s website.

You can purchase exclusively only some of the bags on the runway. Naturally a limited edition collection, don’t let it pass you by!

The collection is of vibrantly printed diagonal Epi Leather. And some with a soccer painting – tribute to Brazil’s sport – and honoring tribute to Brazilian artist Aldemir Martins.

Louis Vuitton recently presented their Cruise 2017 Collection at the Niterói Museum of Contemporary Arts in Rio de Janeiro in Brazil. The sporty collection pays homage to the city’s culture which presents vibrant colors, football and Grand Prix prints with a touch of Parisian flair. The star of the show is the Boombox Bag which is made of the Petite Malle bags which can even play music through Bluetooth. The iconic Speedy Bag features racing prints with Vuitton logo emblazoned on it and comes with a combination of the House classic materials such as the Damier, Epi and Monogram Canvas. The City Steamer gets an edgy update with a variety of pockets and rivets. Louis Vuitton introduces the Football print seen on the Steamer and Twist bags.


It’s pretty clear at one glance where the inspiration for these Louis Vuitton Cruise 2017 Petite Malle bags come from. Tropical hues, racing stripes, greens on gold, even those sequinned animal prints. Yes, set against the dynamic tropicality of Rio de Janeiro, these iconic beauties are given the collection’s mandatory flourishes. Definitely fun pieces to add to anyone’s bag wardrobe, the small Petite Malle perfectly encapsulates the legacy of a luxury trunk maker, and is perhaps the closest any of us will own a ‘trunk’ from Louis Vuitton.


If, however, you’re a ‘purist’ and prefer something that comes in the house’s classic monogram, well, here you go. Buffered with bright yellow rubber stubs for a twist that’s both fun and playful, the Petite Malle can be worn across the body (or over the shoulder) with the use of its additional sling, or handheld as a clutch, which is what I would do myself. No word yet on their exact prices (or when each style will hit Singapore’s Louis Vuitton boutiques) so do stay tuned for more updates.

Dior Cruise 2017 Show at London’s Blenheim Palace

Categories:Other Brands

Ever since cruise 2017 collections kick-started to show the most appropriate outfits to rock the coastlines once the cruise season hits the moment, we have been truly high-spirited to reap much from the period. After Chanel’s Cuba cruise 2017 show and Louis Vuitton’s resort show in Rio de Janeiro, we are also more than enthusiastic to see how cruise flirty flair looks in the background of London conservatism and aristocracy. It was Dior’s resort 2017 collection brought to light today evening at London’s Blenheim Palace that finally got us staring at London-infused resort pieces, with Gucci’s show at Westminster Abbeystill to come.

Dior Cruise 2017 Show at London’s Blenheim Palace

Yes, the main concern about Dior circulating among the masses these days is surely to be the fashion house’s future path, to be more precise who will eventually fill the shoes of the brand’s previous creative director Raf Simons. Today in the evening the answer arrived like who can do it better after all than Lucie Meier and Serge Ruffieux, the two members of Raf Simon’s creative team.

With Dior’s three shows and four collections already under their belt, chances are that the Swiss duo is that very successor we have been waiting for a long time now, especially as today they took the plunge to appear on the runway to take a bow in some creative-director-worth manner.

Moreover, what we observed today in London, starting from pre-show preparations to the choice of Blenheim Palace as the brand’s cruise 2017 show venue to the runway show itself, is hardly to be called a designer-void brand’s demeanor. Lucie Meier and Serge Ruffieux have literally Diorized a range of venues in London.

The facade of the historical Scott’s restaurant was morphed into a magical Dior corner, decorated with white roses and Monsignor Dior’s iconic bar suit figures made of shrubs; the traditional English cabs were exposing Dior’s signature cannage motif; the Lady Dior Pub, a one-night-only pop-up bar greeted all the guests of the Dior cruise 2017 show to entertain them before the show, while the train that took them to Oxfordshire dubbed as “The Dior Express” was yet again declaring all and sundry that Dior was on the air.

In the Blenheim Palace everything was again at the highest level to be in tune with its rich and prestigious past experience, starting from bellboys treating the guests to champagne to a mini Dior archival exhibition. After all, this venue was not only the principle residence of the Duke of Marlborough and the birthplace of Winston Churchill, but also the very location Dior house headed to back in 1954 and 1958.

The Dior cruise 2017 collection was brought to the table as a unique channel between French chicness and English aristocracy. And if you spice up the channel with something old, something new from the history of the fashion house, the takeaway will be the entire collection. The British fox hunting theme made a lovely part of the collection appearing both on the runway carpet and on some garment pieces, like, for example, on a dress worn under a black bolero jacket or else on a black knitted sweater matched with flaring white skirt.

Lucie Meier and Serge Ruffieux keep on interpreting Raf Simon’s so favorite puffed sleeves over and over again, whether we look at an ivory top, an abstractly tailored outerwear piece with discrete lines or a white tunic dress with contrasting blue puffed sleeves. Then it was all about the Swiss Duo’s newly-erupted details, styles and prints.

With every new collection unveiled by the designers, we gradually come to the understating that dense floral canvas, sprezzatura-promising multilayering, a strong handbag game, optical illusion print blocking and some uniquely cut baggy outerwear pieces are to become the key elements to identify Dior’s new style.

The majority of the models sashayed down the runway showing some chaotic outfits, like skirts worn over oft-happening kick-flare pants, a skirt worn over another longer one or a bolero jacket worn over a coat, a list to drag on and on. However some elements were spanking new, like the ruffled peplums, ruched down accents looking especially beautiful on some slip dresses, and also many scarf pieces wrapped on bags, serving as bracelet straps or else romantically running through loops on different pieces.

Whether you are more prone to praising Dior’s new aesthetics or else find it as an unacceptable deviation from the house’s original roots, one thing about the collection is to become viral soon enough – no guesswork here, the golden-soled booties with low heels are a chic thing now.

Chanel Cruise Ad Campaign

Categories:Other Brands


As we are patiently waiting for CHANEL to reveal their Cruise 2015 Bag Collection and the Spring Summer 2015 Bag Collection, for now, we have only spotted a few.

And now that Chanel released their first Cruise 2015 Ad Campaign, we are still not seeing a lot of handbags. Here are the highlights:

Model Joan Smalls is carrying the Chanel Classic Flap Bag in Blue tweed. We know that the Fall Winter 2014 Collection is loaded with velvet handbags, embellished in the iconic’s like the Wallet on Chains and the Classic flap Bags, perhaps for the next release, tweed will be the new thing.

Also a mini bag in golden embellishment has been spotted. It looks more like the extra mini classic flap bag.

Here’s another Classic Flap Bag in multicolor tweed and flower prints. Are you going to bite it?

So what do you think? Love or not?
