GIVENCHY DUETTO SHOULDER BAG

CATEGORIES:Fashion

Givenchy-Duetto-Bag

Givenchy’s handbags are mostly created with bold and strong appearance. They’re inspired by the vision of mixing feminine and masculine together, which creates a unisex look. Carrying a Givenchy handbag resembles the independent and strength of a woman.

For the Fall 2017 Collection, this French luxury fashion introduces the Duetto Bag. The name Duetto means Duet, which means a performance by two people. And this name really reveals what the design of this bag is all about.

The Duetto Bag is constructed in bi-colors like black and white, but it’s also made in tri-colors like brown, white and black. The different colors are painted on the front flap, the center of the body and the edges of the body. This bag is very interesting because honestly, how many Givenchy handbags are made in bi or tri-colors, besides bags with flower prints and large logo’s?

Overall, the look is quite straightforward – it’s timeless. The front flap is made with an envelope style design. The bag has a rectangle shape and it comes with a leather shoulder strap with buckles to adjust to your comfort.

The colors are ideal to wear on the streets with casual outfits, or matching with urban clothes. The back comes with a pocket for instant access to your necessities. On the front, there is a leather strap hanging. This leather strap is attached to a zipper, which is used to open an interior pocket.

The inside is very structured. If you open the front flap, you will find a zippered pocket on the front. Then there is a large compartment to get all your essentials stored. On the back, there is an additional pocket if you need space for more stuff.

The Duetto Bag is measured 8.7’ x 5.1’ x 1.6’ (W x H x D) inches, and is priced at $990 USD, €750 euro, £690 GBP via Farfetch

There are also more styles available via Matches Fashion.

Ulysse Nardin’s new Marine Torpilleur is an elegant timepiece

CATEGORIES:Jewelry & Watches


Swiss luxury watchmaker Ulysse Nardin is historically best known for making highly accurate marine chronometers. The timepieces had to be extremely precise and accurate for the ship’s navigator to correctly determine longitude by means of celestial navigation. Ulysse Nardin earned a reputation for producing exceptional deck chronometers and at one point during the 1800s the brand supplied marine chronometers to over fifty of the world’s navies. Ulysse Nardin newest addition to its emblematic Marine collection is named ‘Torpilleur.’ The latest timepiece is a thinner, lighter version of its iconic Marine collection, aimed at younger and more modern buyers.

Torpilleur is French for torpedo boat – a smaller, lighter warship conceived to battle larger, slower vessels. The tasteful, yet slightly retro, facelift given to the watch makes it more elegant. The redesigned case measures 42mm in diameter and features a fixed, thin fluted bezel. The watch has sapphire crystals on both sides. The rear crystal shows off the UN-118, the in-house automatic movement that has a diamond-coated silicon escapement as well as a silicon hairspring. The crown is engraved with the brand’s logo. The Torpilleur case comes in steel or pink gold and two different versions of the dial are on offer: white lacquer with Roman numerals that’s most similar to vintage marine chronometers, as well as a dark metallic blue. The Marine Torpilleur is available at Ulysse Nardin retailers and boutiques with the retail prices starting at US$6900.

LOUIS VUITTON CROISETTE BAG OR METIS POCHETTE BAG?

CATEGORIES:Other Brands

Louis-vuitton-croisette-bag

The Croisette Bag

Last year in May, Louis Vuitton introduced the Croisette Bag for the first time. It was an instant-hit and we received a lot of positive comments. The Croisette Bag is compact but has flawless functionalities. The design is chic with sophisticated detailing. It comes with a boho-chic tassel, but can be removed if you don’t like it. You can carry this bag for special events or match your casual chic outfit.

The Metis Pochette Bag

But then a competitor arrived in November 2016; it’s the Louis Vuitton Metis Pochette Bag. This bag is bigger, but has the same functionalities like the Croisette Bag – both come with handle for hand carry and leather strap for shoulder carry. The Metis Pochette Bag has a rectangle shape and has more pockets and compartments than the Croisette Bag. While the Croisette is better for casual days or the weekends, the Pochette Metis is a better choice as a workbag or for the busy woman who needs to carry a lot of essentials everyday.

The expansion of the Metis Pochette Bag line

If you look at what Louis Vuitton has done lately, the Metis Pochette bag has been extended from basic Monogram Canvas to Monogram Empreinte and other rare prints like the Monogram Reverse Canvas. The Monogram Empreinte is luxurious leather that changes the look to modern elegant.

The journey of the Croisette Bag was less exciting. Until today it’s only available in Damier Ebene Canvas or Damier Azur Canvas. So what does this mean? Is the Metis Pochette Bag more popular?

Which one is better?

I think each of them have their own style and use. The Croisette Bag is smaller in size and has less compartments but it’s nice to wear for the shopping days or at lunch meetings. The tassel is playful and will go well with simple casual outfit like jeans and tee’s

The Metis Pochette Bag is bigger and has lots of useful compartment. It’s ideal for work but can be carried in the weekends as well. It’s a practical bag especially when you need to carry a lot of essentials. The Metis Pochette in Reversed Monogram or Monogram Empreinte creates a different look for different occasions.

In terms of pricing, the Croisette Bag is slightly cheaper, it’s priced at $1590 USD in Canvas. The Pochette Metis Bag in canvas is priced at $1780 USD, but it’s also bigger.

In terms of sizes, the Croissette is measured 9.8′ x 6.7′ x 2.5′ inches (L x H x W) while the Pochette Metis is measured 9.8′ x 2.5′ x 3.5′ inches (L x H x W). So the length is the same, but the Pochette Metis is bigger in height and width because of the extra compartments.

What do you think? If you need to choose, which bag would you go for and why?

EMILY RATAJKOWSKI ON GETTING CRITICISM

In her interview, Emily talks about the criticism she receives for being a feminist. “There’s this thing that happens to me: ‘Oh, she’s too sexy’,” she says. “It’s like an anti-woman thing, that people don’t want to work with me because my boobs are too big. What’s wrong with boobs? They’re a beautiful feminine thing that needs to be celebrated. Like, who cares? They are great big, they are great small. Why should that be an issue?”
