Posted in Celebrity & Entertainment, Handbags & Accessories, Mulberry, Uncategorized with tags , , , , on May 8, 2010 by Alan + Mei-Mei the pug

OMG!! My Mulberry oversized “Alexa” bag has finally traveled over the Atlantic ocean & arrived to my office today! I am so excited I almost pee on my pants! LOL. It’s just the perfect Unisex bag that’s great for a woman or man to carry!

INspired by UK style icon Alexa Chung’s uptown chic & downtown cool style, this new “IT” bag has been on high demand and sold out at every single store all over the world! Just if you are not familiar with Mulberry bags, The “Alexa” bag is the perfect way to discover this super fabulous band!
 
 
Yes, many people said… “Oh, the IT bag is so over!” well, I said they are so wrong! The “Alexa” bag had started a worldwide frenzies among all the fashionistas! trying to land their well manicured hands on one of this bag! Even tho I have a good collection of high-end bags includes Chanel, Prada, Alexander McQueen, JP Tods, Fendi & Balenciaga just to name a few, but Mulberry has always had a spot in my heart and I can’t get enough of their fabulous bags!
 

My very first Mulberry bag was their signature “Bayswater” bag! it kinda reminds me of the super fabulous Hermes Birkin but without the $15,000 price tag! it’s super roomy, light weight ( Hermes Birkin is heavy!! ). The oversized Alexa bag I got today is an updated version of the “Bayswater” bag with a twist.

” It reflects one of the maor seasonal themes of schoolgirl naivety and effortless charm” , said by Mulberry.

The bag is made of buffalo-leather satchel-style shoulder bag with gold-tone hardware. Mulberry bag has a plaited top handle, a detachable shoulder strap, a fold-over flap with magnetic press-stud fastening buckled tabs, a twist lock fastening at front, tabs at sides to adjust, internal pouch and zipped pockets and is fully lined in designer-stamped gray twill.

• This oversized handbag fits over the shoulder, across the body or can be worn in the crook of the arm.

• Width 15″ / 38cm x Height 12″ / 31cm x Depth 6″ / 16cm

• Handle Drop 2″ / 5cm and the long leather strap can extend up to 50″ long to wear across the body as a messenger bag

Ok, here is a photo of me modeling my new Mulberry Oversized Alexa ! ( I know I am not a model size but just wanna show y’all this pic for the proportion of this bag against to a male fashionista’s body, and it’s truly a fabulous UNISEX bag! )

Anna Wintour’s New Pick of Hot Young Designer – Christopher Kane

Posted in Anna Wintour & Vogue, Fashion with tags , , , on March 21, 2010 by Alan + Mei-Mei the pug

If you are into fashions, then you must know who Anna Wintour is. The Godfather of fashion, Queen of the fashion magazine VOGUE as the editor in chief.

If she likes you, then you’ll sure be the darling of the fashion world! As we have seen she had helped many of the young designers now has became a household name such as Peter Som, Proenza Schouler, Thakoon are among the lucky few who was on Ms. Wintour’s “Favorite Designer” list. It’s like she if she points that “fashion magic wand” at you the you transformed into this “It” designer that everyone loves. And now, she has a new pick, British designer Christopher Kane. Wintour is trying to help him to become a household name!


In his most recent Fall-Winter 2010 collection, he offers up a little tough and little sweet looks with embroidered flowers in rainbows of colors on top of leather shorts, dresses and even lace-up boots

Kane balanced angular, sharp-shouldered blouses and bodice with fluid skirt and loose-fitting leather shorts. I like he balanced the hard details with soft shearling. Towards the end of the show, he added crystal detailings to his nipped-in dresses. Even tho it’s full of flower embroideries but you can almost feel a “Dark Side” of these dresses, maybe a little bondage, underground clubs inspired? Maybe you can find some of these outfits for your next party at your local biker bars! wink

Untill next time, be well and look fabulous!

Aviation Jacket Rugged Chic – Burberry Prorsum Fall Winter 2010 Collection

Posted in Burberry, Fashion with tags , , , , , , , , on March 21, 2010 by Alan + Mei-Mei the pug

I am so excited about Burberry Prorsum’s Fall-Winter 2010 collection that was just show at London on February 23rd, 2010. The creative director Christopher Bailey has blown us away with a show that’s packed with fabulous outfits & accessories! Christopher was inspired by the aviation jackets & uniform’s shape & details. He expressed his creativities but still stay firm to the spirits & traditions of this 154 years old fashion house.

Since the year of 1956, Burberry has a casual yet “upper-class” chic, old money yet downtown cool kind of clientele. By combining the chunky aviation style jackets long & short version with tons of hardware details like buckles, rivets, belting, and mix the proportions of chunky coats vs. tight skinny pants or boots or hard & rugged materials like leather with fragile lace & silk charmeuse. It offers a kind of sexiness that’s not trying too hard but still attention grabbing!

What makes it even more cool about this new collection, it’s not just a beautiful fashion show then everyone just go home, it combines the runway presentations, communications & selling all together! It was globally live-streamed & viewed in 3-D by clusters of invited guests in New York, Tokyo, Los Angeles, and Dubai. Also what’s super awesome & clever in this case, is the simultaneous pre-selling of the clothes on the runway! And for three days (Feb 23rd ~ Feb 26th) you can go to Burberry.com to pre-order one of these fabulous runway pieces and you will receive your order by May 2010 the latest!
