How I love the Boy Chanel Collection, let me count the ways…
Seriously, you guys. I’ve always admired the Chanel aesthetic but have never felt the need to acquire one of the brand’s bags; I was simply content to appreciate the look on other women. Until the Boy Chanel bags made their debut, at least. Ever since that fateful runway shoes when Chanel took its well-known flap shape and turned it both a little bit more modern and a tad more industrial, I’ve been hooked.
I finally got the chance to fondle some of the Spring 2012 line in person over the weekend, and I was not disappointed. In fact, I put my name down for one of the stellar Fall 2012 Boy runway bags, but until that shows up in August, I’ll be enjoying the images of the spring bags that I’ve assembled after the jump. Whether you’re a Boy convert or you’re still on the fence, check out the bags after the jump – they’re too good to miss.

From Jane Birkin’s Hermès bag to Jackie O’s bamboo-handled Gucci purse to Carrie Bradshaw’s Fendi baguette, there is no science for how a bag achieves iconic, decade-defining status. Being worn by the right woman at the right time certainly helps, but it’s no golden ticket. Being worn by every right women over the last ten years is even better. And if you can sustain the Kardashian swell, you’re golden. Nicolas Ghesquière, who left Balenciaga today, famously explained that he designed his first multicolor leather purses just so his models would have something to hold as they walked the runway in 2001. But as the legend goes, Kate Moss couldn’t get enough of them, and the rest is handbag history. As impressive as his runway and ready-to-wear remains, it will be these soft, thin, hardware-heavy bags that most people associate with his career at Balenciaga. Perhaps because a dizzying number of starlets, “It” girls, and C-listers carried his bags at some point.

Lebanese designer Elie Saab was feeling monochromatic for the Spring 2013 season.Season elegant Elie Saab turned day dresses. The women in his works is the beauty of this city career. Therefore, the wide-leg slacks and plush slippers are not suitable for this release. We see button system to collar silk shirt with starched trousers or a pencil skirt.The dress part given answer is particularly fitting lace dress or and fold type A V-neck skirt. Striking the large travel bag – Elie Saab Girl workplace.
Perhaps this season in particular Paris in black and white and Italy, however, do not follow the law of Elie Saab from Lebanon. His palette we glimpse back to Milan – bright royal blue, turquoise, raspberry pink and baby powder, plus stamp design on the dress. These abstract print chiffon fabric, then the black stripes heavier body curve – this type of design can be said of Elie Saab’s new breakthrough, even if Paris has bothered to performance digital printing, these works are still very good.
Evening wear has always been the the Elie Saab tricks. There is not a designer like Saab female body curves so crafted. This season is still wonderful works. Such as a navy blue lace dress, lace bottoming decorated with horizontal stripes, drape a sense of weight to the model posture especially beautiful. This dress presumably have to become a red carpet darling.

The Victoria’s Secret 2012 Fashion Show came and went on Wednesday but while viewers can see photos straight from the runway, they won’t get a chance to see the circus-themed show for another few weeks.
The VS Angels rocked the runway in New York City at the Lexington Armory on Wednesday, donning creations from the newest collection and, of course, those sparkly wings. The fashion show will air Tuesday, Dec. 4 at 10 p.m. EST on CBS featuring performances by Rihanna, Justin Bieber and Bruno Mars.
Since 1995, lingerie giants Victoria’s Secret has held its annual fashion show to present the newest collections in the VS family. But 2001 was the first year it was ever televised, broadcasted nationally featuring notable musicians and the most famous Angels, including Naomi Campbell, Heidi Klum, Liu Wen and Gisele Bundchen.
Another tradition is the “Fantasy Bra,” a custom-designed bejeweled brassiere this year costing $2.5 million and worn by Alessandra Ambrosio.

As the last one of the grand finale of the Paris Fashion Week, Louis Vuitton release how many people a few eyebrows. First, regardless of the number of styling Published or unexpected “streamlining”; Secondly, in pairs + escalators go station unique way, quite a spectacle; However, the most important in Hedi Slimane Marc Jacobs and their comparison and Raf Simons invariably raised the banner of “neoclassical” is destined to be used, and does not seem willing to respond – although you still can be seen on the outline of the new series of these sixties on the finish stage style or color selection, designers are more willing to give their own paste “Concise school” label.
Marc Jacobs speech can do to prove: the train and romantic storytelling, this series, I want to feel the story, but it has the power, plaid born. “Yes, no bright plaid more emphasis on the design elements of the vision itself. This purely biological stimuli, from the era of optical efficiency art has continued to the present, in the middle clothing narrative preferences because the stylist who was fading, but always less than give up the fashion. The reason is that they can cause common human visual experience – the experience is entirely biological, and cultural background of the audience, aesthetic experience, regardless of the level of education. In this sense, Marc Jacobs has made a wise choice, to avoid confrontation and Hedi Slimane and Raf Simons, after all, and the other two, Marc Jacobs already do not need to prove himself by Louis Vuitton

While promoting the last saga in the Twilight series ‘Breaking Dawn’, Ashley Greene who plays Alice Cullen in the movie, was spotted looking sophisticated toting the newest bag from the Chanel Cruise 2013 collection, the Chanel CC Crown Tote bag.
This bag retails for $300USD and is available in gold, white and black. It’s reminiscent of the PST with brassy thick chain hardware and CC logo on the front. This purse is extremely compact with a top-zip and sturdy base to fit your day to day items. This bag is made in luxurious calfskin leather.
If you have a Tweets consideration, an Instagram consideration or make a addiction of taking Online style information more than, say, once every three several weeks, you have probably seen images of the Chanel Hula dancing Ring Bag. Terrible, in the design’s short life, it’s showed up on this weblog three individual times, not such as the image above. It’s the type of media-savvy shift at which Chanel is so talented; a strong, photograph-friendly product on the driveway will get you an amount of interest and hype on the Online that is well-nigh precious, in promotion conditions.
As Rachel Strugatz described in a latest article for Female’s Use Everyday, that hype seems now to be so highly effective that it’s even impacting customers and, perhaps furthermore, manufacturers themselves. Instantly following the display, Chanel made it obvious that the bag was designed as a driveway product and would not be created for store sale; now it seems as believed they have reconsidered. Strugatz reviews that because of the frustrating reaction from the Online, the bag will reach store with the relax of Springtime 2013 (including small sized edition of the Hula dancing Ring Bag). No term on how much the bag will cost, but for such a high-profile product, it likely will not issue. Chanel has plenty of massive lovers and lovers for whom money is no product, and this is exactly the type of identifiable, restricted development, completely covetable product that they are going to line up to get their arms on, just so it can look amazing while shown like a style hunter’s greatest award in their large wardrobes. I can listen to the patiently waiting details developing as we talk.
… to a Givenchy Antigona. If you have been following my posts, I have been blogging about the Antigona for quite some time. I was honestly waiting for “the right one” (plus the right time for my funds LOL) to come along before I made that bag commitment.
And then it came… in threes,
All these three versions are not easy to find– I’ve searched for them in Milan- Paris- London, and not all the shops had the croc-embossed one because it was a very popular choice (over the regular leathers). The tri- colored one in the back is made of textured leather that resembled galuchat. That piece is also difficult to find and is a gorgeous neutral bag. Much use can come out of that bag.
If money was no object, I’d have taken all three without question. But alas I have no financial coffers like the Kardashians. So a choice had to be made.
I went for the Indigo. For a bit though, I was deciding between the Indigo Croc- Embossed and the Emerald Croc- Embossed. Both were just exquisite. The Emerald green was soooo rich. The Indigo blue a much more useful color for a bag (guaranteed mileage) and is not too basic a color either. I was so torn between the two but I had a green bag in that exact same shade and texture back home. I couldn’t be redundant because again, it’s not like I can buy two or all three bags.
And so I adopted the Indigo and here’s an action shot.
The bag tends to look black during nighttime and on certain angles during daylight. It’s a two- for! After having carried it, I can personally tell you these about the bag– at least for the Croc Embossed one:
- It can be a tad heavy.
- It’s a very structured bag and if you don’t fill out the bag with things there is a tendency for the bag to have “dents”– although they are not permanent.
- The strap is really not detachable, and you cannot sling the bag on your shoulder with the 2 rolled handles.
- One- way zipper enclosure and it’s a tad hard to open/ close (but this could also be because the bag is still new)
That said, I love using the bag! I just need to be a better bag content editor
