Tod’s: Italian Notes

Other Brands

IMAGES: TOD’S

To put it as simply as possible, Tod’s new project, Italian Notes is the Italy-centric equivalent to say, Lonely Planet’s city guides but with a twist. Featuring recommendations from Italian style icons, it’s a condensed city-by-city guide, with specific must-visits and must-dos all written from a first-person perspective.

Take, for example, Milan’s Guglielmo Miani, a born-and-bred Milanese who is now the chairman of Associazione della Via MonteNapoleone. He recommends taking breakfast at Camparino, the historic ‘in and out’ bar, perfect for a stand-up breakfast in true Milanese style where it hasn’t changed for 100 years. Or Como’s Maria Mantero who suggests visiting the gem of a theatre Teatro Sociale, a trip to the Fabrics Museum and Cremeria Bolla, a pastry shop with ice-cream that ‘blows your mind’.

Perfect for first-time travellers to Italy, or even those who have been there before but missed out on the more culturally interesting sights, Tod’s Italian Notes starts each city as a chapter, with cities Milan, Venice and Como already published online. You can even download them as e-books, an additional feature that will be launched soon, which means you can have your very own copy saved as a PDF file, or read them viaiBooks or Google Play.

In other words, have a read before your next trip to Italy because who wouldn’t appreciate travel tips from the Italians themselves, right?

Gucci Cruise 2016 GG Blooms Tote

Other Brands

IMAGE: GUCCI

If you have seen any of Alessandro Michele creations as far as Cruise 2016 Mens Gucci collection is concerned, it’s a joyous riot of bold colours and quirky details, from Oriental tigers to rainbows to little bees appearing on everything from coats to blazers to shoes. And then there are these, an extension of the GG Blooms collection, but for boys.

Featuring a lush geranium floral pattern in different hues of greens and creams on the GG coated-canvas, you could say it’s Michele’s way of including the guys, which besides the tote (shown above) that comes with an additional shoulder sling, lined interiors and a roomy zip pocket in the middle, will also appear on a range of SLGs and footwear as well.

IMAGE: GUCCI

And speaking of SLGs, here’s the zip pouch that comes with a detachable sling. The good? It’s so pretty. The bad? It’s a tad slim for my taste but for those who have nothing much to carry around and intend to use it as a bag charm of sorts will find it most alluring.

Priced at SGD2600 and SGD730 respectively for both pieces, these, along with a smattering of bags and shoes from the Cruise 2016 collection, will be available at Gucci boutiques in Singapore from tomorrow (11 September 2015). In other words, it’s time to shop.

Louis Vuitton

Louis-Vuitton-Spring-Summer-2016-Lookbook-2

For style ideas, we turn to lookbooks…and we are ever-grateful for the kind of inspiration they give. So allow us to take you in for a spin while one of our favorite brands, Louis Vuitton, comes up with their own for Spring Summer 2016! Drool-worthy couture is everything for the budding fashionista, and trust us – we’re making notes of our own!

The over-all color palette for this lookbook may reflect a more subdued, neutral take but you can never mess with the basics! And of course, the luxury brand knows this fact very well…keeping it all under control. Still basic, but with attitude.

The Louis Vuitton Lookbook for Spring Summer 2016 was shot by the visionary Jurgen Teller, under natural lighting and with models posing in the studio behind glass – reflecting the sun, sights and Paris sky. There is no perfect background other than this, and the attention to detail on this lookbook is really obvious. We’re seeing some fashion-forward bags and footwear (have you seen the Twist Chain bag?)…actually, we’re just dying to get our hands on the pieces from this lookbook. So, any thoughts on this? Comment now!

Other Brands

Prada-Spring-Summer-2016-Runway-Bag-Collection-3

If you’re hunting for a ‘reliable’ and trendy tote bag, look no further. You’re at the final station. Introducing Prada Spring Summer 2016 Bag Collection and there are plenty of choices.

Can you choose?

Prada is reinventing tote bags, for this collection you will meet a lot of colors mixed with white, light brown, black and grey. These are relaxing colors (for away from faux-pas) and the combination makes sure that you will owning something-timeless.

Prada-Spring-Summer-2016-Runway-Bag-Collection-2

The tote bags come in many variation – you will thin handles and thick-buckle-like handles. And notice! Notice! The logo Prada is not embellished on the front anymore, it’s on the side and even chic’er.

Prada-Spring-Summer-2016-Runway-Bag-Collection-14

All right, Prada is also experimenting with large-chain handles. Behold a large flap bag without shoulder chain, but instead we are getting tote chain (we honestly do not think you can carry this on your shoulder). The design is modern and bold, silver chain is definitely taking-over the spotlight.

Prada-Spring-Summer-2016-Runway-Bag-Collection-16

Well, about this kind-of red. We promise that eyes-will-be-everywhere-on-you. A gorgeous bag by the way, with the top handle finished in black. With the right outfit and you will be stealing the show.
