Louis Vuitton New Wave Collection

Louis Vuitton extends its New Wave collection in February. Whether tender, passionate or more classic, three shades champion the colours of love. Perfect gifts for Valentine’s Day!

The Heart bag embraces the universal heart shape as a versatile symbol to make your own. A removable shoulder strap, leather handle and a loop on the back allow it to be carried in three different ways: over the shoulder, clutch-style in the hand, or on a belt.

The LV Love locks accent the quilted leather of the Louis Vuitton New Wave line. A host of fun symbols – metallic padlocks, keys and locks – punctuate the small and large – Chain bag, the Heart bag and even the wallets.

The Heart bag comes in blush pink and scarlet with the LV Love locks, while its black version simply sports the LV signature. The blush pink Heart bag with the LV signature is exclusively available online.

Enlivened with LV Love locks, the small Chain bag in scarlet and the large Chain bags in blush pink and black bring their colourful energy to this festival of love.

Miu Miu Introduces the My Miu Bag

First seen in March on the Miu Miu runway in Paris, the My Miu bag marks the first occasion in which the name of the brand features prominently both patched in psychedelic lettering and in the form of a large polished gold or palladium lock.

Star accessory of the new season, with its glittering fringes and jeweled buckles, the My Miu combines a respect for handcraftsmanship and the finest fabrications with a sense of femininity, irreverence and fun.

The My Miu show model is the most elaborate, presented in five different and highly distinctive combinations of precious materials: madras leather patched with python; python or ayers embellished with jewelled fringing; python or ayers finished with a jewelled buckle; matelassé leather with a python belt and jewelled buckle and fluffy fur with an ayers belt and jewelled buckle.

Colours range from classic – natural snake, black – to pop bright and pastel and, often, a juxtaposition of the three. All bags feature a removable and adjustable python or ayers strap allowing them to be carried cross body, on the shoulder or as a clutch.

The My Miu is also available in a slightly smaller size and fabricated to suit every occasion. Classic madras and ayers, matelassé and ayers and velvet and ayers bags come with a metal chain strap. The denim interpretation features a sporty nylon strap.

Completing the range, the mini My Miu is the simplest and most accessible version of the style. Light, easy and effortlessly elegant, it is crafted in signature matelassé leather and textile in a wide range of colours with a metal chain strap.

Bag Crush – The New Gucci Dionysus

It was big news when GUCCIicon 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!
