For the Love of Collars

«Add a collar» is the new «belt it»… a styling hack that converts even the dowdiest of tops into a zoom-ready look is the detachable «faux collar». With waist-up dressing still on the agenda, it is the perfect way to transform even your PJ into something new. I recommend getting different ones so that you look different every day. Think turbo-charged, XL collars that protrude past shoulders, and are repleted with ruffles and fashioned in tartan, gingham, florals and even leather. Below are my favorites. To shop, click on the highlighted product description.

Louis Vuitton Rendez-Vous Bag

For next Spring, pencil in a meeting with Rendez-Vous, Louis Vuitton’s highly distinguished new bag. This neo-classic is reminiscent of our precious diaries, with its three compartments protected by a flap and clasp. An understated luxury but with the House’s authentic signature know-how: the finesse of the most beautiful leathers on the outside and the softness of a Monogram-embroidered jacquard on the inside.

The engraved chain adds a stylish accent; it can be removed to offer an array of carry options: crossbody, over the shoulder, held in the hand or even next to your heart like a talisman, as suggested in the latest runway show.

Naturally, the lock has been directly inherited from the trunk-maker. Its subtle colours – black, camel or beautiful leather red – express the discreet charm of pure refinement. Rendez-Vous is right on time for a tête-à-tête with elegance.

Louis Vuitton Coussin Bag

The aptly named Coussin is the latest addition to Louis Vuitton’s S/S 2021 collection, a bag born of Artistic Director of Women’s collections Nicolas Ghesquière’s reflections on the stylistic space between the feminine and the masculine – a sensitive zone that erases gender.

What could be called neutrality or gender fluidity evokes a whole arena of expression, creating its own character. The Coussin alternates between several feelings and attitudes. A comfortable and supple bag in the softest of lambskins, the Coussin has the familiar feel of a good friend with its multiple quilted compartments protecting one’s most precious belongings. Its ambiguity lies in its incisive colours, ranging from metallic tones to radical shades, along with its removable chain with its strong, geometric design.

The Coussin effortlessly combines elegance and personality, whether worn crossbody, over the shoulder or in the crook of one’s arm, taking stylistic freedom to new heights.

Personally speaking, I truly like it, especially in green and silver. It is impressive how Bottega Veneta’s chain designs for bags have inspired so many other collections…
