Bloom’ing Love


If you thought that influences of the ‘garden-variety’ were limited to the clothes in the Spring 2008 collections, you are wrong! The inevitable happened and the influence tipped over onto accessories as well.

Thankfully, not much of that happened because no matter what they say, I just don’t think lugging around a floral bag that costs $$$$ is fashionable! But some of these shoes were cute (ooh, Blahnik!!)…as were some of the pieces of jewellery that I saw, again, emphasis on ‘some’!!

Louis Vuitton For Darjeeling Limited



Source

The Wes Anderson movie, Darjeeling Limited has been panned in its reviews but thats not the point, is it? The point you ask? But of course, the Louis Vuitton luggage. The movie revolves around three brothers’ journey through India carrying their dead father’s luggage! Louis Vuitton luggage that is. Designed by Jacobs for Vuitton using aged calfskin, velvet lining and a special jungle pattern (the pattern created by Anderson’s brother)!

The luggage was on display at the New York LV store for a limited time and was auctioned off, the proceeds of which went onto benefit UNICEF and the Rawal Mallinathji Foundation, a medical treatment charity in India!

To read more, and learn how the bidding/auction went, go HERE!

Pardon Us, We Converted!


If you have read this blog long enough, you’d know that nothing puts us off more than excessive monogrammed anything, especially bags! And Louis Vuitton always made that list, because, for some reason, we could never figure out why everyone insisted on carrying the boring brown monogram when there were better bags out there, including some from Louis Vuitton itself!

Imagine our surprise when we saw the Louis Vutton Spring 2008 Ready-To-Wear Collection! Marc Jacobs absolutely went to town with it! Talking of the bags, they were quirky, colorful and so over the top!

Am sure the Vuitton purists considered this, no less than a sacrilege but since we were never too big on the brown monogram, it didn’t take us long to be gushing over the kitschy, oh-so-fun bags! The Ostrich (below, left) is gorgeous and look at the difference those ombré handles make on that white, multi-colored monogram bag (below,right)!!

Hoorah to the retro-psychedelia!! These could easily be our favorites…

And, this, definately a front-runner as far as favorites go! So much so that Chamiya longed to pre-order hers! I predict many a young starlet sporting this arm-candy come Spring next year! It is trendy, summery and all things nice!

The show had a vibe that was new and fresh and we loved its irreverent nod to the monogrammed bags! Call it creative genius or commercial hara-kiri, but from us, it gets a big thumbs-up!

Book Launch Launches Bag’mania..


.. for us anyway!

The book launch in question was the photo-essay book about Sunil and Nargis Dutt written by their daughters Priya and Namrata. As usual, not only were the who’s who of Mumbai present but also making an appearance were their bags!

We (Well Heeled and I) couldn’t stop “oooh-ing” the uber-expensive Bottega Veneta Lizard clutch carried by Gauri Khan. (Life is really good when you are SRK’s wife!)


Buy via Neiman Marcus

We also caught Simi Garewal carrying her favorite, the LV Suhali L’Aimable shoulder bag.

Finally, the fabulous Neetu Singh-Kapoor carrying the timeless Chanel quilted clutch!

Chunky Shoes, A Trend??



Source

Marc Jacobs for Louis Vuitton’s Fall 2007 ready to wear collection did these super chunky, gladiator’esque shoes, almost invoking the inner dominatrix in a woman! And now, I notice the same sort of shoes being worn by Sarah Jessica Parker in the upcoming Sex And The City Movie! Do I smell a trend?

Oh, and incidentally, the shoes that SJP is wearing are Christian Dior’s! And if you fancy a pair, found one on Ebay, take a look!
