Louis Vuitton Cruise ’16

The Louis Vuitton ’16 show just conclude, and Boy am I blown away! Nicolas Ghesquire has woven his magic once again!

The show took place at the House of Bob and Dolores Hope- the House takes you on an breathtaking journey through Palm Springs.

Here’s a quick look at my favorite looks  – I love the rich palette, dominated by bold baroque prints.

It wasn’t the models on the runway that everyone was talking about at the show , it was the David Bowie inspired faces that greeted guests as they arrived at the Bob Hope’s space-age house in Palm Springs that have been filling up chic Instagram feeds.

The show looks so fabulous – it’s tempting me to get my hands on the new Mini-Trunk bag!

Look..The Lock’s Back!

We’ve seen this trend passing by through various runways’s and magazines time and again!

This time around though, the Lock trend seem’s to have exploded and HOW!

We saw a rather bold look, with an emphasis on a lock chain by none other than Chanel on the runway. Looks like this trend is no longer being restricted to accessories such as the Hermes wristlet or a Louis Vuitton necklace.

Designers seem to be ready to push the envelope and incorporate the classic lock in apparels as well.

Looking forward to see what else is in store for us to look out for. This definitely looks like a promising start!

Travel Diaries: Boston

Our Next Stop on this holiday was one of my favourite places.. BOSTON!

Boston a college town and a pathway to success comprises of beautiful architectural buildings amongst the vast university campuses .This city never fails to impress me each time I go back!

This time around around things were no different either, I stumbled upon various interesting concepts that caught my eye  As I walked down Newbury street which houses most of the coveted fashion brands.

A beautiful Wedding planner boutique, an LV and Chanel inspired artwork at a gallery and strong floral prints at a window display.

FIFA Frenzy 2014

One of the only trending topics these days is the FIFA World Cup 2014 in Brazil!

I for one am not an avid follower of football, but seeing what brands such as Paul Smith, Hublot, Dolce & Gabbana and Louis Vuitton have done this World Cup, Definitely got me excited!

Here’s a look at what some of my favourite brands did:

Hublot: The Official time keeper for FIFA 2014 in Brazil.

Paul Smith: Introduced the Paul Smith Limited Edition football this season.

Louis Vuitton: Especially designed a case to carry the FIFA World Cup trophy. Covered in now iconic LV monogram canvas, the case has signature brass locks too.

Dolce and Gabbana: Team Italy was by far the most impressive, wearing three-piece, navy colored suits by their official sponsor since 2006, Dolce & Gabbana, for their arrival in Rio this year.

Louis Vuitton brought the fashion crowd to Monaco on Saturday May 17, 2014 for a Cruise 2015 show at Place du Palais de Monaco in front of the Grimaldi family.
