Chanel Coco Cocoon Collection

For Fall/Winter 2009-2010, Karl Lagerfeld designed ‘Coco Cocoon’, a new collection of sleek, casual handbags and accessories in washed lambskin or nylon. The Coco Cocoon line reveals turned inside out, the signature Chanel quilted pattern which corresponds to Coco Chanel’s perspective that “true luxury is when something is as beautiful on the inside as it is on the outside”.

The collection features a number of pieces from handbags and small leather goods to large travel bags. All pieces are lightweight, really comfortable for use in travel or city escapades from day to night. I quite like some of the bags just because they’re puffy and great for traveling (and could double as a pillow, lol). But some are really chic especially the white totes, bowling bags and the cute little pouches.

Coco Cocoon is now available at Chanel stores worldwide.

Louis Vuitton Monogram Stresa

I’m back! Its been quite some time since I’ve last written something. It’s because of the construction that’s happening here in the house. Our floor is being redone and finding a nice spot to sit ‘normally’ (without cutting circulation off my legs) is quite a challenge, but everything’s done now and I have settled back in my corner… back to work!

Louis Vuitton Monogram Stresa PM

Now onto the bag. You may remember this one from the photos I’ve posted months ago, from Vuitton’s Cruise 2010 presentation in New York. The bag was presented in Damier Azur canvas, but that version would be hitting the shelves months from now. You can, however, get the Stresa as early as now… in Monogram Canvas.

Named after a town on the shores of Lake Maggiore in Italy – a popular retreat for the elite – the Stresa has the town’s calmness and timelessness in terms of the design. It’s an elegant bag with an angular shape  and offers a comfortable carrying experience even when full. Effortless chic I say.

The bag features a wide zipped opening for easy access, two interior patch pockets, an interior D-ring, bottom studs for protection and flat shoulder handles. It comes in two sizes PM (15.7″ x 8.6″ x 8.3″) and GM (17.3″ x 9.4″ x 8.6″) with both sizes large enough for carry A4 documents. They’re available at Louis Vuitton stores and online at for US$1360 and US$1520 for PM and GM respectively. More pics after the jump…

How to Wear Fashion Jewelry – Some Basic Tips

You can be as creative as you want with fashion jewelry but there some basic things to keep in mind. Here are some of our tips…

1. Skin tone:
If you’re fair skinned, pastel colors generally suit you. If you have darker skin, go for a darker version of the pastel shade. For example, pastel blue goes with fair skin while a deeper blue like aqua or cerulean blue is more suitable for darker skin.

2. Body type:
If you are full-figured, big beads and gemstones tend to make you look bigger. Stick to smaller stones and beads. The opposite applies to petite women – avoid wearing accessories that are too small. Try chunky beads and gemstones instead.

3. Color of your top:
If you are wearing a dark colored top, try to wear accessories that match and complement the top. Colors opposite on the color wheel go together. For example, yellow goes well with violet. If your top is multi-colored, wear a necklace that just has one color so it doesn’t clash too much with the dress. If your dress or top is in a solid color, try jewelry with more than one color to contrast with your top.

4. Necklaces: 
If you’re wearing an intricate necklace (with beads in different sizes and colors), keep the earrings simple – think studs or hoops. On the other hand, if you wear a simple single line necklace, wear a bolder pair of earrings. Just make sure their colors and pattern match. Your necklace and earrings should generally complement each other, not clash with each other.

I love this Swedish outfit.


It reminds me of Sophia Coppola (yes its her) in the Black Crowes’ video Sometimes Salvation. How perfect is it?! What more they do want from me?!?!
