The newest Keri Tote Bag from Chloe is something you shouldn’t dare miss. A simple yet classic tote bag, you’ll definitely find yourself falling in love with this bag and we wouldn’t blame you for it.
Minimalistic in design yet fashion-forward, this Keri Tote Bag might just be the next big “IT” bag of the year. And why not? It features grained lambskin leather finished off with a hook-shaped strap base. The polished brass tone hardware and the gold-stamped logo at front on the other hand, made it all the more captivating.
But wait, there’s more to its outside appearance that meets the eye as its interior is also something you would look forward to. It has top zip closure and a zip pocket interior perfect for keeping your phone or other essentials.

Being Schiaparelli’s newly appointed creative director and having to create the fashion house’s couture collections doesn’t seem like an easy task at all. For the Schiaparelli Couture fall/winter 2016-17 collection, which is Bertrand Guyon’s third take on couture fashion since arriving at Schiaparelli in April last year, the designer tried something new, with both Elsa Schiaparelli’s and his own takes on fashion being at the core of the entire line-up.
To make things ‘easier’, he chose a motif that is a hard one to explore for sure, but would allow anyone’s creative stream of consciousness to run wild in the world of fashion: Elsa Schiaparelli’s Circus collection.
Born at the end of the Nineteenth century, Elsa Schiaparelli could be regarded as one of the most eclectic and whimsical minds of the fashion industry, with her signature surrealistic and outrageous take on fashion that is yet to be righteously outdone. Showcased in 1939, Elsa’s Circus collection is still remembered as one of the darkest and most evoking line-ups the designer has ever created, with trompe l’oeil sweaters and sinister patterns dominating the scene.
The collection surely had a strong impact on both fashion and society, and has it sort of responded to the unavoidable threats Europe (and the entire world) was about to experience.
In the same way, we could righteously assume Guyon is also trying to reveal something about his perception of a society that has never stopped being at war since the very beginning of the XXI century. He seems, however, also to be celebrating the same society, reminding us that there is always something good to be glad about in this world.
Although predominantly dark-toned, the collection alternates rich blacks with Schiaparelli vibrant pinks and golden cascades of fabrics, interrupting thus the Circus collection’s darker undertones with something more cheerful.
The cuts and lines intertwine similar motifs, at times bringing in opulent, exaggerated structured lines, and at times wrapping the bodies with modern goddess-like pieces that infuse the entire line-up with moments of pure femininity.
As the collection draws to a close, we see Guyon play more and more with pastel colors and even playful refinements, as if leaving a positive and encouraging message was all he wanted to do.
The Schiaparelli Couture fall 2016 line-up could, in fact, be divided into three main sections, with the first darker part and the last more delicate one undeniably being the ones where he dared the most. In the middle, between the most Schiaparelli-inspired section and the most Guyon-approved one, there’s an appealing array of pieces that combine both the designers’ signature motifs, with retro patterns coming paired with more modern cuts and youthful lines.
Whether Guyon will keep on drawing inspiration from Schiaparelli’s unique designs is unknown. What we do know for sure, however, is that as long as he keeps on infusing his collections with poetic and metaphorically surrealistic patterns, Elsa’s legacy is preserved for sure.
Louis Vuitton has owned the world with its well-loved leather goodies but after 70 long years, the French Fashion House is going to test the waters again when it comes to the fragrance sector.
The French brand shared that it will now take a different approach to fragrance as the same will take its inspiration from travels, journeys and adventures from far flung countries.
We are definitely over the moon as we love traveling and exploring so this fragrance sounds exciting. For others, traveling is the greatest love of their lives and having a go-to Louis Vuitton fragrance while you’re out there conquering the world is an added bonus.
The newest scent Les Parfums Louis Vuitton is expected to make its debut in September, after more than four years of in-depth research and analysis. The fragrance label will be a license of French conglomerate LVMH, of which Louis Vuitton is the front-running brand.
The master behind the scent is no other than expert perfumer Jacques Cavallier Belletrud. Over the long expanse of his career, Mr. Belletrud became a perfume asset to LVMH brand such as Fendi, Givenchy, Kenzo, Christian Dior and Bulgari among others.
In order to come up with the scent, Mr. Belletrud himself has travelled the world seeking his muse and in the end, he was able to create a scent that has notes of “exotic places and rare materials.”
More information will follow soon…

CELEBRITIES CHANEL CHRISTIAN DIOR GIVENCHY HERMÈS
The pre-holiday weekend celeb snapshot offerings are usually not the most premium selections ever, but we managed to round things out quite nicely with a double dose of Bella Hadid and a pic of Naya Rivera stocking up on bottled water. And while many celebs are carrying their fave Chanel andHermès bags, per usual, there are a few surprises within. (Heidi Klum carried a bag that retails for under $500, for example!) We'll assess where celebs vacationed over the holiday weekend and what bags they packed in our next celeb post, coming tomorrow.
1 / 8
Dior Diorama Bag
Here's Bella Hadid heading into Mr. Chow in Tribeca with a gorgeous, gilded metallic leather Dior Diorama Bag. Like Rihanna, Bella is now a Dior campaign girl, which surely gets her all the Dior bags she could dream of. Also, is Bella wearing a minidress or just a turtleneck?
2 / 8
Givenchy Lucrezia Bag
Bella was also spotted out and about in New York on a separate occasion with a supple, textured-leather Givenchy Lucrezia Bag, outfitted with what may or may not be a black Fendi Bag Bug. This is a far more comfortable, July-appropriate look than a sweater dress and thigh-high suede boots.

Here's Bethenny Frankel, leaving Zibretto Espresso Bar in NYC with a bright blue Birkin, which she has also accessorized with a couple designer key fobs.
4 / 8
Elizabeth and James Zoe Saddle Bag
Heidi Klum was spotted shopping in Tribeca with a surprisingly affordable little white leather saddle bag from Elizabeth and James. Heidi's bag picks tend to be fairly high-end, so it's interesting to see her carrying something that's (relatively) more accessible.

Chanel Boy Bag
Here's Jessica Biel, trekking down Melrose in LA with a quilted black leather Chanel Boy Bag. I feel like Jessica has relied on her Chanel bags rather heavily in recent years.

Chanel Classic Flap Bag
After a brief flirtation with a Chanel backpack, Kris has returned to her first love, the Chanel Classic Flap Bag. Here she is carrying a beautiful, bedazzled version of the Flap while signing autographs outside of Craig's in LA.
7 / 8
Hermès Kelly Bag
Laverne Cox carried this red Hermès Kelly Bag to a recent appearance on The Daily Show. I feel like we are just a few more bags away from running "The Many Bags of Laverne Cox." I can feel it in my bones.
8 / 8
Hermès Kelly Bag
Finally, here's Naya Rivera, grocery shopping in LA with her own Hermès Kelly Bag, as one does. If you're wondering what Naya's been up to, she apparently had a baby last fall, and she wrote a book, which is due to hit shelves in September.
We love exotics because well, they’re exotic, but this takes the jungle vibe a step further. It’s downright dangerous looking! And who doesn’t crave the element of danger every now and again?
The basic shape allows the skin to take center stage (that’s good because any additional flair would shove this over the edge), and the super-snaky effect delivers plenty of drama, which Alexander McQueen has never been known to shy away from. Come on, this is a brand whose signature is an often-bedazzled skull! Neutral elaphe looks great on an otherwise simple and smallish satchel; this organic pattern is strong enough to speak for itself.
High-gloss and in-your-face: this might be too much for some, but I happen to like nature in its most natural form, and this feels like something straight out of the jungle that belongs right on your arm. Alexander McQueen Padlock available for pre-order at Saks Fifth Avenue for $2,395

Inspired by the Iron Lady (La Dame de Fer in French), a.k.a. the Eiffel Tower, the Dior Skyline fall 2016 makeup collection aims at turning you into the ultimate seductress of the upcoming season. Comprising mesmerizing eyeshadow palettes, cheek and lip products, the long-awaited collection is set to hit the international market later in August, 2016, when you’ll finally be able to purchase your favorites from Nordstrom, Sephora, Harrods and other major department stores.
The collection strives to give your face that majestic play of light and shadow, creating a kind of enigmatic beauty that’s truly obsessive. While the complexion is kept natural and clear, all the focus centers on the edgy lip makeup and the heavily accentuated eyes without looking overwhelming. It’s the highly coveted look Peter Philips created for the Dior fall 2016 runway show.
This is what you get in the Dior Skyline fall 2016 makeup line:
Dior Diorblush Light & Contour Sculpting Stick Duo ($44.00)
This innovative sculpting stick duo features a matte contouring shade on one hand and a shimmering softer color on the other one that is perfect for highlighting.

This 2-in-1 stick is a multitasking concealer inspired by the backstage beauty techniques Dior’s makeup artist applies. It serves as a lip primer creating the perfect base for your lipstick application, as well as comes to act as a skin perfector concealing under-eye dark circles, blemishes and other small skin imperfections. The product is available in four colors each boasting a special feature:

Apply the product before or after the foundation, on the high points of your face – the chin, the nose bridge, the cheekbones, the forehead and the nose wings. It’s advised to use a color that is one tone lighter than your foundation. The product is available in four shades to match every skin tone out there.
Dior Skyline 5 Couleurs Palette ($63.00)
Peter Philips has created two fall-ready eyeshadow palettes for the new season, one of which creates timeless soft earth eye looks, while the other one is all about balancing the warmness of browns with touches of plum and pink.
