Christian Louboutin Cabaraparis

Welcome to Paris: the city of lovers, artists and poets. Paying tribute to the City of Light’s splendor, the CHRISTIAN LOUBOUTIN launches its new signature tote: The Cabaraparis.

«Paris is my ultimate muse. It’s one of the most visited cities in the world, with some of the grandest architecture. I wanted to capture that fantasy element of Paris, not anchor the CABARAPARIS in realityChristian Louboutin

Marking the first artist collaboration on a seasonal tote, the Cabaraparis is typically tongue-in-cheek. Featuring five neoprene panels illustrated by the talented Hélène Tran, the city’s most timeless characters and iconic monuments are brought to life by her inimitable brushstrokes.

Available in two precious strass-embellished styles, the Cabaraparis pays tribute to the City of Light’s two facets. By day, the Cabaraparis takes us on a whirlwind ride through the capital’s streets. Dotted throughout this dreamscape map of Paris, we discover a giant red-soled Corset stiletto pumps, flirtatious chimeras and crazed streetlamps, all more charismatic than the last. In a whimsical twist, love letters written by Christian to his beloved city line the Cabaraparis Day’s interior.

Over on the Cabaraparis Night, the sun has set and the cabaret lights dazzle with their brilliance. Chimeras beguile and enchant Christian, turning him into a Parisian sphinx, half human, half leopard. High in the inky blue sky, a CL star twinkles with strass crystals whilst on rue Jean Jacques Rousseau, the Maison’s flagship boutique illuminates the darkened streets, drawing in curious passersby. On the tote’s lining, a feline Christian meows, «T’shoes me!».

Part of this amazing capsule collection are of course different high heels and sneakers – one pair more beautiful than the other.

A whirlwind of imagination and storytelling, the launch of the Cabarapariswas set to coincide with a retrospective exhibition at the famed Palais de la Porte Dorée, dedicated to the designer’s creative universe. Needless to say, Paris is always a good idea!

Louis Vuitton Crafty Collection

Featuring vivid hues and magnified ultra-graphic prints which play with the LV Monogram Giant motif, the LV Crafty collection expertly blends fine craftsmanship and pop style.
Its creations draw inspiration from two artistic movements from the second half of the 20th century: graffiti art and neo-expressionism. During the 1980s these urban, underground trends ventured into new and established creative territories, including New York museums and galleries.

Today, the LV Crafty collection is suffused with this graphic boldness which first adorned the Monogram canvas. The collection revisits a print chosen from the House’s archives and paired with the Monogram Giant motif in black. Available in two colour schemes, cream and red or the more autumnal cream and caramel, LV Crafty appears on the House’s most iconic pieces – Onthego, NéoNoé and Boite Chapeau Souple.

The Monogram Empreinte leather has also embraced the LV Crafty print, adding subtle and elegant touches around the chapes, on the handles and to the accessories, which brighten up and energise the sleek black or white leather.

The collection will make its debut in all Louis Vuitton stores at the end of July, highlighting the House’s wide range of expertise for a full selection of trainers, accessories, ready-to-wear, travel and more to start off the fall season in style.

Meet Dior’s New Bobby Bag

Here comes your next It-bag. Presented first on the F/W 2020 runway, Dior unveils Dior Bobby, a new bag of timeless modernity and a subtle tribute to Christian Dior’s beloved pet dog. Another must-have piece created by Maria Grazia Chiuri because the simplicity in its design is precisely what makes this bag so versatile.

The Dior Bobby is a hobo style showcasing sophisticated lines and harmonious proportions.
It’s available in three sizes – small, medium, large – and in four colours – black, white, camel, and of course, the signature blue Dior Oblique canvas that is still all the rage in fashion. It has a flexible suede interior, and is enhanced by antique gold-finish metal hardware. Its removable and adjustable shoulder strap has a military-inspired buckle, and allows it to be carried on the shoulder or crossbody, as well as by hand.

In stores Mid July! So get yourself on the wait list now! I am going for the middle sized one in camel below. Isn’t it so pretty?

LoL, Sandra
