GIVENCHY BRASS CLUTCH – A STATEMENT OF BOLD SIMPLICITY

Other Brands


The latest accessory to join your wardrobe should, without a doubt, be the classy new Givenchy clutch. This particular minaudière, which acts as a jewelry-piece-cum-evening-purse, is made of soft gold-toned brass and is a complete makeover from regular minaudières with its upright rectangular curvy shape and smooth edges. The metal clutch has a soft leather lining on the inside and though, at first glance it resembles a flask or a gadget case of some sort, we can’t help but be intrigued by its pale luster and stark absence of clutter.

The clutch could definitely be the perfect accessory for an evening soirée or event. The subtly striking color could add glamour and sophistication to your wardrobe and could be paired with almost anything; though a black outfit would be best suited. You can buy the gold brass clutch at Net-A-Porter for $2,600.

Jenny Packham Spring/Summer 2016 Collection – New York Fashion Week

Fashion

When it comes to New York Fashion Week we stand assured of seeing a generous amount of Hollywood-style gowns and frocks that are arrogantly spreading glamour and glitz all around. The British fashion designer, Jenny Packham is one of those initiators, who year by year comes to prove herself as one who is absolutely alien to casual style and casual manners, persistently adhering to her Kate-Middleton-esque style. It is not only Kate Middleton, who has been spotted wearing a Jenny Packham shift dress covered with yellow flowers or a pale blue one with white polka dots while leaving the hospital. Angelina Jolie, Kate Hudson, Uma Thurman, Miley Cyrus and many other celebrities have found something very familiar and unique about Jenny Packham’s designs. The designer’s eponymous fashion house, famous not only for designing evening dresses but also bridal apparel, has recently presented the charmingJenny Packham spring/summer 2016 collection, which was not expected to deliver something new and experimental.

Jenny Packham Spring/Summer 2016 Collection

However, Jenny Packham was partially innovative this time focusing on feminine and masculine monolithic energy that allows blurring all boundaries between the two sexes. She brings forward a very provocative frame of reference that the most attractive men have something feminine about them, while the most attractive women have something masculine about their character. She was mainly inspired by some feminine touches that her favorite musicians Mick Jagger, Nick Cave and David Bowie were emanating out. This very concept has been put in action to give birth to her spring/summer 2016 somehow androgynous collection.

Stating that the collection was all about Ying & Yan would be wide of the truth, as the runway was logically constructed in a way as to present a couple of androgynous options between ultra-feminine gowns. Actually, this concept proved to be quite effective and emphatic. The show, of course, opened with a masculine ensemble consisting of silk blazer and lean pants with palpable feminine elements like crimson wildflowers and leaves all interspersed here and there. Another masculine outfit that the onlookers were confused to see was the all-black chiffon shirt with sensually sheer sleeves all unbuttoned, paired with loose fitting trousers. Notable was also the floral printed blazer paired with cozy skimming trousers or chiffon pants topped with chiffon shirts all covered with flowers.

Between these bewildering pieces we could see Pickham’s signature glittering gowns embellished with studs or henna crystals that were mimicking multiple stars glistering in the night sky. Floral prints, appliqués or embroidery continued to find their place on massive ball gowns that seem to come right from a royal family. Sticking to the floral theme is somewhat trendy and popular this year around, so from this standpoint Packham is no way innovative but what makes her flowers different from others is their looking utmost natural on the models’ bodies, sometimes even turning them into real flower girls when there is tulle around. The embodiment of naturalism was definitely a mid-calf gunmetal georgette dress with cap sleeves and V-neckline that has been spotted by many fashion bloggers and fashion addicts as one of the most impressive staples in the collection. The palette of the collection was not only close to nature but also royal, among them being crimson red, lavender, rose pink, silver, grey and different shades of green like emerald and lime.

As for the models’ hairstyles and makeup solutions, we again didn’t fail in our predictions, witnessing ultra-natural wavy hair and pale makeup sometimes becoming bright by crimson red lips.

Ralph-Lauren-RL-Clutch-10

Just like clothing or shoes, we believe in the power of the handbag wardrobe. In some instances, you’ll want to have a big, statement-making satchel on your arm, but other situations call for something smaller and lighter, although no less impactful. For those occasions, the brand new, limited edition Ralph Lauren RL Clutch is a beautiful option.

Ralph Lauren is a brand built on the classic ideals of American aesthetics, and the clean design of this clutch, finished with a gold monogram inspired by a timepiece from Lauren’s Automotive Watch collection, fits that description well. The structure is simple; the interior has two compartments, one of which is ideal for a phone, while the other, larger section holds essentials like keys, a slim wallet and your favorite lipstick.

The RL Clutch can work in a multitude of situations, depending on your needs. The clutch comes with a detachable shoulder strap in matching lambskin or suede, which fastens discreetly under the top flap closure. When it’s in use, the bag is a mini crossbody perfect for a hands-free day of shopping or other errands. When the strap is removed, the bag is an effortlessly chic handheld companion for dinner or a cocktail.

The clutch comes in three versions, all exclusive to RalphLauren.com and the brand’s Madison Avenue flagship in New York City: supple lambskin in red or navy, or soft, tactile suede in a rich shade of caramel. The colors, like the design itself, speak to Ralph Lauren’s embrace of enduring American style; it’s not hard to imagine this bag paired with other staples, like vintage jeans and a white button-down, for a subtly sophisticated look. For evening, trade the jeans for a slim skirt and remove the clutch’s shoulder strap.

HERMES BOLIDE MINI BAGS

Hermes

Hermes-Bolide-Mini

The Hermes Bolide Mini Bag is a timeless piece that’s bound to give you an edge when you wear it. Like the brand that started it all, the bag goes a long way – in 1922, the piece was created for the wife of Hermes’s owner Emilie-Maurice Hermès who, at that time, wanted a bag to carry as she rode in a car. The bag was initially named “Bugatti”, as one of the first few pieces ever to incorporate a zipper as its closure.

Now, the prized bag has zapped itself into a mini version – a modern take on a classic favorite. The bag, which has a cotton canvas with waterproof lining and an inside pocket, can serve as a travel case or a neat inner compartment for your valuables. It’s a great way to organize in style! Trust Hermes to give you only the best bag experience you can ever ask for.

Measuring 8.3” x 5.7” inches, you can get your very own Bolide Mini Bag for $385 USD via Hermes e-store.

Thakoon Spring/Summer 2016 Collection – New York Fashion Week

Fashion

Thakoon Panichgul brought in the contemporary, the lovely and the rather interesting all in one pretty 34-piece collection. It was all about being cute, comfortable and spunky, with a positive attitude and a confidence in the body image that is undeniable. This is a collection meant for the masses and the It-Girls who love to show off their more relaxed, everyday styles. By combining Thakoon Addition with his main line, the designer seems to be having slight trouble finding his footing in the fashion world, as is also hinted at with his Thakoon spring/summer 2016 collection that newly appeared on the New York Fashion Week runway. While the opening was more focused on the denim, the high cut shorts and body suits, it ended on a more sophisticated note with sequined pieces and something akin to a tulle dress over a bathing suit. We have to admit though, the sleepwear grouping was a little on the strange side to see, including pajama shirts and terry cloth, one literally being a bathrobe.

Thakoon Spring/Summer 2016 Collection

Tie-dye seems to be in for Thakoon and the Bohemian style is blossoming into something a little more on the lighter side, with bleached, light in weight denim and silk slip dresses that show off individuality like no other. It was interesting to view, to say the least, as the designer took on the hippie trend and gave it the Thakoon flavour. Pretty much, we can imagine the ladies on campus loving this look as they can roll out of bed, put on designer clothes and still look just about ready to sleep. Or maybe they’ll sleep in these garments and just head to class looking as glamorous as ever among their sororities.

Just in case you actually want to put on some clothing that is relevant to a night on the town and not just to wear to classes or to bed, those sleek, bicolored broderie anglaise dresses might be just the thing for you. Though we have to admit to having fallen in love with the button down high waist skirts paired with tight fitting round neck love sleeved tops.

Thakoon Spring/Summer 2016 Collection

Thakoon Spring/Summer 2016 Collection

In terms of following the fashion trends? Plunging necklines: check. Frilly hems: check. High waist loose trousers: check. Culottes: check. Nipples showing through: check. Floral motifs: modernized and contemporary, but check. Our favourite trend noticed here though? That would just have to be the long sleeves on tight top regions with the triangular cut-out at the abdomen showing off toned muscles underneath. That and the cut-outs on the sides making the plunging necklines all the more visible and alluring, particularly on one particular black and white option with an embroidered set of triangles across the chest region and a very comfortable embroidered black skirt underneath. Thakoon might be struggling to find the perfect combination of styles, but we have to admit that he’s doing well with what he has at the moment as well. It is as well-rounded a collection as we have yet to see on the runway this season.
