Louis Vuitton Monogram Shadow Duo Messenger

French Maison Louis Vuitton has launched a new Duo Messenger. In full leather (well, Monogram Shadow leather, to be precise), the highly versatile series of bags (or multi-pouches, if you prefer) has become instant hits for the simple fact that they are functional, stylish, and carry that magical ability to be worn by both genders.

The new Duo Messenger comes in Monogram Shadow, a grained black leather that’s subtly embossed with the brand’s iconic monogram pattern. Completing the ‘tone-on-tone’ look would be the accompanying purse and complementary jacquard shoulder strap, as well as black metallic hardware that makes it a so-black piece. Unlike its older sibling, the Duo Messenger comes with just one roomy pouch that measures 26 cm by 18.5 cm.

The Louis Vuitton Monogram Shadow Duo Messenger is available at Louis Vuitton Boutiques worldwide. Come into the beautiful world of Louis Vuitton.

Dior Releases Its Redesigned Bobby Bag

DIOR_2020_FALL_CAMPAIGN_©SARAH-BLAIS_5-scaled

Designed by Maria Grazia Chiuri, French Maison Christian Dior has unveiled a re-designed Bobby Bag as part of its Fall 2020 collection release. The new It bag pays homage to Monsieur Christian Dior’s beloved dog Bobby, who lent his name to many designs in the Maison’s archive. Bobby has also inspired a limited-edition perfume bottle, like a work of art in his image, designed by Fernand Guery-Colas among many other things.

A nod to monsieur Christian Dior’s dog, the Bobby carries an air of ‘timeless modernity’ with its contemporary contoured shape, smooth box calfskin that is selected for its superior quality., flexible suede interior and craftmanship.

The fashion house’s iconic signature ‘CD’ initials, made of antique gold-finished metal, is defined atop the classic military-style buckle which neatly hides the magnetic clasp of this petit flap bag. An emblematic signature, the ’30 Montaigne’, Dior’s landmark Paris address, is relief hand-embossed in tone-on-tone and finished by hand — giving a subtle echo of the eponymous emblematic bag.

DIOR_2020_SAVOIR-FAIRE_BOBBY-BAG_8

Hand made in Florance, Italy, the Bobby Bag is available in three sizes and two versions: the calfskin and the embroidered Oblique Jacquard. The former is available in four colors of black, blue, latte and camel, and the latter just in the color blue.

These exceptional designs are realized in Florence, the beating heart of leather goods production, according to a precise and demanding artisanal savoir-faire.

A must-have piece in the collection for every apostle of Dior, the Bobby can be carried in the hand, worn on the shoulder, or cross-body thanks to its detachable shoulder straps. The latter also comes in matching leathers or an embroidered version, offering an endless possibility to mix and match for a resolute couture result.

Watch how the Bobby Bag is hand crafted in the video above. The Bobby Bag is available at Dior Boutiques, Dior’s official website, and selected stores worldwide.

Saint-Laurent-Condoms-The-Love-Affair-02

After dropping a range of branded accessories comprised of balls, tennis rackets, yoga matts, brass dumbells and more, now you can have sex but make it fashion with the help of Yves Saint Laurent’s new line of chic couture condoms.

Announced by Yves Saint Laurent’s creative director Anthony Vaccarello via Instagram, the branded condoms will be available exclusively at Saint Laurent’s Parisian concept store, Rive Droite. The condoms will be packaged in six different designs ranging from a black-and-white checkered pattern to leopard prints and gold heart emblems. Each design is then stamped with Saint Laurent’s house logo.

On the heels of a star-studded Paris Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2020 show, Yves Saint Laurent’s creative director Anthony Vaccarello teased the new campaign on his Instagram. To accompany the release Saint Laurent launched the campaign ‘The Love Affair’, which was shot by famed photographer Juergen Teller. In the image shared by Vaccarello, Polish model Anja Rubik is seen alongside a ‘full frontal’ heavily-inked artist and supermodel David Alexander Flinn, but Instagram appears to have removed it. Truly heart-breaking.

Burberry Monogram Stripe E-Canvas Zip Pouch

 

Burberry-Monogram-Stripe-E-Canvas-Collection.jpg

Burberry officially unveiled its #ThomasBurberryMonogram Collection on 22 May, an entire range dedicated to the new house code which features a set of interlocking TB logos together with additional stripes overlay for a graphic look.

It’s a collection that’s made for everyone, featuring RTW pieces for him and her (including pieces for the young ones), with a pretty good selection of bags and accessories to boot. What’s particularly interesting is the fact that the bags aren’t made entirely of leather (save for the trims and handles), nor are they made from coated canvas (found on the previous vintage check pattern) that you might be familiar with.

Burberry-Monogram-Stripe-E-Canvas-Zip-Pouch-Women.jpg

In fact, they are constructed from an environmentally conscious e-canvas that consists of renewable resources requiring less water to produce and generates less carbon dioxide than regular coated canvas. Made from 75% thermoplastic polyurethane and 25% cotton, e-canvas is Burberry’s approach to cleaner and greener fashion, starting with its accessories, bags and sneakers in the #ThomasBurberryMonogram collection.

A noteworthy piece in the bag line-up would be the Monogram Stripe E-Canvas Zip Pouch, a slim pouch measuring 30 cm by 20 cm that’s furnished with a slip pocket and 6 card slots on the interior. It’s a handy accessory that can be carried on its own, or you can always get creative and attach a leather loop to the ring at the side and you’ve got yourself a nice and chic wristlet.

Burberry-Monogram-Stripe-E-Canvas-Zip-Pouch-Men

If you’re a fan of bigger-sized bags, there are plenty of designs ranging from a cool bum bag to a crossbody camera bag, with the largest of them all being a barrel bag and tote bag that measure 46 cm by 24.5 cm and 43 cm by 35 cm respectively. The entire #ThomasBurberryMonogram collection comes in tonal shades of beige and vintage oak, easy neutral colours that are prefect for the everyday. Now available across Burberry boutiques islandwide, you will also be able to take a look online.

Dior x Sorayama B23 High-Top Sneaker

Dior-x-Sorayama-B23-High-Top-Sneaker-01.jpg

Hajime Sorayama is an acclaimed Japanese illustrator famed for his works of retro-futuristic robots (specifically eye-popping female androids) and also the man behind the creation of the 39-foot-tall silver cyborg that formed the gorgeous centrepiece of Kim Jones’ Pre-Fall 2019 menswear show held in Tokyo.

Sorayama is also credited with the creation of this exclusive print created for Dior, in which a dinosaur robot is set within a picturesque landscape of delicate cherry blossoms. Interestingly, the composition is anything but jarring and one that works well with the #DiorOblique print.

And because Dior likes to release its products in several drops across the season, you will have to wait patiently for the entire Pre-Fall 2019 collection to arrive in stores. If, however, you’ve got your eyes set on these gorgeous B23 High-Top Sneakers, the good news is that it is part of the very first drop that’s now available across Dior boutiques worldwide. Coming in a beige or blue printed #DiorOblique technical canvas body, the standout feature’s got to be the addition of the Sorayama’s dinosaur.

Priced slightly higher at $1050 (when you say it quikly, it isn’t a lot), this is definitely the sneaker that any Kim Jones/Hajime Sorayama fan shouldn’t be without.
