If you are going to say good-bye now to summer, then you are supposed to greet the fall in the prettiest way possible. Therefore I recommend to champion the new season’s essential over-the-knee boots – an instant look-changer whatever you are wearing. Take a high level approach to fall dressing in boots that offer extended coverage and style for days.

When I was in Los Angeles for the TOM FORD Ford F/W 2015 show, I was invited to visit the brand’s presentation of the upcoming beauty launches at the Sunset Tower hotel. The moment I entered the suite, my eyes were immediately drawn to two clutch bags placed above the fireplace.
This amazing piece of art is finished with a lipstick holder at one side and comes with the ‘Vanilla Suede‘ shade from the brand’s beauty collection (you can use every TOM FORD lipstick shade of course). It’s lined in leather and has a zipped pocket, so you can keep your essentials neatly organized inside. The concealable snake chain strap offers an alternative way to wear this elegant Italian-made piece.
Those clutches are highly limited and only available at selected retailers. Therefore I am so happy that a few are now available online. Just click on the highlighted links below to be transferred directly to the store. Those bags will literally be on everyone’s lips!

It was big news when GUCCI revealed their new Creative Director, Alessandro Michele, in January this year (for the previous post, please click here). One thing is for sure. The fashion industry loves debuts and indeed, Michele’s approach feels very different from what we had been knowing from Giannini’s collections. The new man at the helm of Gucci has a decidedly more romantic outlook, differing from the former sexy designs.
For his first season, Alessandro Michele created the DIONYSUS BAG, which will be the It-Bag of the season! With the horseshoe-shaped double Tiger-head closure as its distinctive feature, the Dionysus was named after the eponymous Greek god of wine, who crossed the river Tigris with the aid of his father, Zeus, who sent a tiger to carry Dionysus across.
The new Dionysus bag is available in various materials including exotic skins like python and crocodile, and even with embroidered embellishments such as a bee, snake or eagle, created using strips of brass whipped in silk thread.
My favorite model is this hand-painted floral motif as also seen in the F/W2015 ad campaign.
Design of the gods. A bag you’ll surely love to carry around this season and many more to come!
