Louis Vuitton Lipstick Case

After LOUIS VUITTON‘s Petite Malle iPhone case and the Horizon wireless earphones, I couldn’t believe my eyes when I saw the newest chic gadget the French Maison has come up with: a monogrammed lipstick case that makes my heart leap with joy.

For those who prize their lipstick above almost all else, the monogrammed bullet case comes in two colorways: classic chocolate with gold metal casing and light tan with silver accents.

Inspired by 1920s-style jewellery holders, it fits up to two lipsticks (or anything else like hair clips, and some cash – it is perfect for partying) and secures with a lock. The best part of all is that it comes with a chain so you can wear it as a long necklace, across your body, or even attach it to your purse as a stylish accessory.

In case you felt your lipsticks needed dressing up, here you go! Available in the US for $1390 from February 22, 2019 here. The launch date for Europe has not been confirmed yet.

Most Important S/S 2019 Accessories Trends

From sophisticated head pieces to over-the-top jewellery pieces and amazing raffia sun hats, these are the most important accessories trends you need to know about for S/S 2019.

LoL, Sandra

Fairy-tale whimsy, an ode to couture, spring’s plethora of veils speak all languages.

Larger-than-life shades for the ultimate eye protection and maximum style statement.

Headband game is now a thing, signalling a big move in the adornment game.

Bombastic raffia sun hats will elevate your summer looks to a new level, especially when combined with red lips.

Hats are ‘the’ accessory of the season and really stylish if they match your outfit.

With an ethnic or futurist edge, XXL jewellery shapes the season’s silhouettes.

Prada Foulard Collection

Pure Prada. A new collection of foulards and scarves create a new wardrobe of Prada prints, drawing on emblematic patterns and approaches from the Prada archive and current seasons, rediscovering and reworking them afresh. They are used to create timeless accessories – definitive accents to a look, across four themes: DOUBLE MATCH, PITTORESQUE, BAROQUE and FANTASY.

The ‘DOUBLE MATCH’ group boldly combines signature yet contrasting Prada prints as inspired by the striking juxtapositions from the Prada Pre-Fall 2018 womenswear collection – icons, approached iconoclastically.

PITTORESQUE’ showcases hand-drawn picture-postcard views of significant cities around the world – Milan to London, Moscow to Shanghai, a wide-ranging global journey in brilliant hues.

The ‘BAROQUE’ foulards draw inspiration from the seminal graphics of the Prada S/S 2011 ‘Minimal Baroque’ collection, for a sumptuously-coloured duo of scarves in patterns influenced by the curlicues and arabesques of barocco décor.

FANTASY’ proposes fantastical illustrations of the impossible – a surreal world of the feminine and the floral depicted by James Jean and Jeanne Detallante, the wild reveries of Prada.

Offered in a spectrum of sizes – both square and rectilinear – the foulards are crafted from silk-twill with hand rolled edges.

The Prada ‘DOUBLE MATCH’ foulard collection is on sale now; the accompanying trio of collections will join throughout the beginning of 2019, offered to clients at selection of Prada boutiques across the world, and via the digital flagship prada.com.

Dior’s It-Belt for Cruise 2019

From the It-bag to the It-belt…! Drawing inspiration from the ezcaramuzas of Mexico (female equestrians in the traditional Mexican rodeo known as charrería), Maria Grazia Chiuri has designed a number of feminine outfits for the DIOR Cruise 2019 collection with eye-catching details: Corsets and wide leather belts in plain black or totally embroidered in Mexican flowers emphasized the models’ waists. In reference to the equestrian world and the House’s heritage, each style of belt is in the form of the ‘Saddle’ bag with its emblematic curved flap and tab decorated with a golden “D”.

Those belts will be flying off the shelves now…

Waist It!

When it comes to your waist, the golden rule is to keep it cinched. Belts have been making their presence felt on F/W 2018 runways — from Versace, to Elie Saab and Gucci. This little add-on packs a big punch when it comes to elevating your style while also slimming your silhouette into a flattering hourglass. When it comes to evening wear, the easiest way to change the look of a gown you sported before is to wear a belt. It is also the best alternative to altering.

Suffice it to say, the styling possibilities are infinite, as is the internet’s statement belt selection. Here, I’ve narrowed it down for you.

Longchamp x Clo’e Floirat

For its F/W 2018 collection, Longchamp has teamed up with the French designer Clo’e Floirat to create a pop and colorful collection, featuring dogs on many pieces.

The artist brings her stylish touch to a selection of bags, including the iconic «Le Pliage», small leather goods and accessories. Clo’e Floirat also created an exclusive dogs line with colorful cowhide leather leashes and collars in three sizes and five colors.

Playing with humour on a theme of this «must-have» accessory, Clo’e Floirat has imagined a story of «Le Pliage» bag unfolding in three formats. She portrays packs of dogs in bright and bold colors walking their owners on the nylon canvas’ tone-on-tone navy print flap with red signature details.

The whimsical dog pattern can be found throughout the vibrant cotton canvas travel bag’s limited edition and on a large silk scarf. The hounds are equally featured with their noses held high on 6 key rings.

Finally, the star of this collectiona red dachshund – appears on two small leather goods, a small silk scarf and an umbrella and shown prancing all over packaging and paper bags, never-to-be-forgotten. With Clo’e Floirat, Longchamp once again offers center stage to artists while revisiting its classics, combining modern day contemporary designs full of cheerful playfulness!

About Clo’e Floirat

Hermès Carréoké

Scarf addicts silk it out loud. Keep the carrhythm…
HERMÈS takes its theme of the year «Let’s Play» literally and invites you to play your favorite song and enjoy carréoké-ing in an Hermès F/W 2018 silk scarf (don’t miss the video at the end of this post…).

Scarf dressing has been spotted in all ways on the F/W 2018 runways…

With scarf dressing and revival of the ’80s being major fashion trends, it is absolutely worth checking out the French Maison’s new collection of must-have silk accessories that you can tie as you like for example as bag straps; purse accessories; nontraditional ankle straps or just wrapped around the head.. the creativity is all yours.

And moreover who does silk scarves better then HERMÈS –  the honest answer? Nobody!

Great news is that after Madrid, Rome, New York City, Brussel and Munich, on October 26, 2018, HERMÈS will open the SILK MIX pop-up store in Zurich, which will be inspired by the look of a record store to house the Maison’s men’s silk, presenting a great variety of shawls, scarves and ties along with the power of color that Hermès is so famous for. Carré motifs decorate album covers, tie designs dress cassettes. It is an invitation to let the beats and melodies drive you. Each disc – or cloth – is associated with a part from the soundtrack of the Prêt-à-Porter men’s runway shows of the past eight years.

Shhhowercap

SHHHOWERCAP is nothing like the ones you remember your grandma wearing. Founder Jacquelyn De Jesu has transformed the outdated shower cap into a functional and fashionable way to protect perfectly styled locks and calls them «waterproof turbans». The antibacterial fabric repels water, dries quickly and lets moisture out on a molecular level.

Unlike traditional plastic versions that create humidity and frizz, it’s breathable so hair retains its volume and smoothness. The thicker, high-quality elastic is built to last and won’t leave the characteristic indent on your foreheadOprah and Kim Kardashian are fans and so am I!

Wear it to the pool, spa, with hair masques or to protect your blow-dry in the rain.
