If you feel like there is a magnet pulling you toward the picture above, it’s not your fault. Blame it on Nicolas Ghesquiere for releasing this marvelous bag.

Meet the Louis Vuitton One Handle Bag. Well, the name already revealed the secret right? It has one handle, but it does come with a leather strap that can be removed or adjusted. So either carry it by hand or sling it cross body or on your shoulder. Given its size, both ways are practical.

The One Handle Bag is designed with a modern and lady-like look, refined with a sophisticated twist. It’s mixed with Smooth and Grained Epi Leather in a new folded shape. To be exact, the top flap is made in smooth leather while the bottom part is crafted in epi leather, which creates a beautiful and interesting appeal.

Many detailing are inspired by the historic trunkmaker like the signature D Tuck Lock Closure, Eyelets Brackets on the front-bottom, Name Tag D, so it’s a combination of modern and classic look.

Especially the D Tuck Lock Closure in golden hardware is impressive and mesmerizing. It’s the centerpiece that finalizes the bag. Measuring 8.3’ x 5.5’ x 3.1’ (L x H x W) inches, priced at $2400 USD, €1780 euro, £1660 GBP, $19100 HKD, $3150 AUD, ¥284040 JPY, via Louis Vuitton boutiques.

If we take a moment to flash back and see what Celine has done in the past years, we’re thinking about these bags; the Tie Bag, Belt Bag, Ring Bag or the Trotteur Bag. They’re stunning, but none of them can match the fame of the Luggage Bag, or the Trapeze Bag. But all of that can change in the future. Celine has introduced new handbags during the Spring Summer 2017 Runway and they look very promising.

As a whole, the Celine spring/summer 2017 ready-to-wear collection was extremely variegated and sophisticated, even when displaying outerwear-inspired staples. Like Gvasalia’s Balenciaga spring 2017 collection, Philo’s Celine lineup for the spring/summer 2017 season strongly focused on cozier figures, with textures, lines and cuts that will come in handy especially during spring’s weather unpredictability.

Phoebe Philo played with different materials too, with a sleek leather fabric and silky materials dominating the scene. Most of the blazers, sweatshirts and trench coats also looked warmer than what we would usually consider as a summer-read staple, which will make many of you sad that the collection was not a see-now-buy-now one.

Although some staples were heavyweight looking, the overall impression was that of an extremely relaxed lineup, both in lines and perceptions. Draped and wrapped dresses ethereally got alternated with inversed peplum skirts, with airy capes and voluminous sleeves completing the lineup. Slightly sheer fabrics surely helped the collection get its most voluminous, flowly take, as seen, for example, in the drop-waist shirtdresses, and billowy cropped pants.

Aside from the bright whites, which are one of Philo’s recurring shades, the Celine spring 2017 collection included soft yellows, mint greens and reds, with also pops of delicate pink and orange revamping the scene. The collection’s protagonist was, however, a specific shade of blue, renamed International Klein Blue after French artist Yves Klein.

Philo, who loves mixing art with fashion, took one of Nouveau Realisme’s leading artists as one of her collection’s main sources of inspiration, as his signature blue paint strokes got revisited to evoke and represent female silhouettes. Phoebe Philo then also dipped some of her white frocks into Yves Klein’s iconic blue hue, adding a sort of street style allure to the entire collection.

Yves Klein was not, however, the only artist whose works inspired Philo’s Celine spring 2017 collection. To reinforce the runway show’s cosmopolitan attitude, Philo asked artist Dan Graham to showcase one of his most standout works, namely an S-shaped structure that was placed in the middle of the runway.

“Social interaction, fantasy and life in general are the main driving forces in my work,” explained Celine’s creative director. “Dan Graham’s installation is therefore an interesting and powerful way for me to present my collection to the audience.”

As mentioned above, Philo’s Celine spring/summer 2017 collection was heavily urban-chic, as demonstrated by the runway show’s soundtrack as well, namely the noises of the city traffic. Such a soundtrack went hand in hand especially with the layered, street wear-inspired outfits, which she often completed with pairs of sporty-chic Adidas Stan Smith.

The accessory line couldn’t, of course, be any less imposing than the clothing line. Pointy-toe flats and ankle boots, often unpaired, got alternated with fancy sneakers and whimsical hybrids between a flip-flop and a boot, which unapologetically reminded us of Philo’s elegant nonconformism.

Disney to Designer Looks: Zootopia (2016)

Categories:Fashion

Official Promotional Image

Official Promotional Image

On the outside, Zootopia is a cutesy buddy-cop film centered around a fictional mammal metropolis. But, if Zootopia teaches its audience anything within the one hour and forty eight minutes time frame of the movie, it's this: never judge a book (or, in this case, a bunny) by its cover.

After all, at its core, Disney's 2016 summer hit Zootopia is about encounteringracial stereotyping and discrimination in the workplace. More than that, it's a refreshing, modern-day critique on our society that's equally allegorical and fast-paced.

So, it's definitely not what you would expect for an animated film featuring anthropomorphic animals and amusing narrative devices.

Still, the charm of Zootopia is in its simple storytelling, or the ability to captivate its audience, both young and old, with hard core truth; funny, tongue-in-cheek quips ("Life isn't some cartoon musical where you sing a little song and all your insipid dreams magically come true. So let it go.”); and brilliant, dynamic characters.

If you haven't seen this off-the-charts adorable film yet, I highly recommend it! You won't be disappointed. In the meantime, keep reading for three simple College Fashion looks inspired by Zootopia's anthropomorphic cast (some light spoilers ahead).

Judy Hopps

Credit: ScreenshotCredit: Screenshot

Judy Hopps, voiced by Ginnifer Goodwin, is the protagonist of the whole shebang, and the good cop to our buddy-cop film. Raised up in the rural country of Bunnyburrow, she's expected to continue on the family legacy and stick to doing what rabbits do best: farm (and probably also breed, as evidenced by her 275 siblings). 

There's just one problem: Judy wants to be a police officer, not a farmer. So, in typical Disney fashion, she pursues her dream with admirable optimism, along with the hard work to back it all up. Despite being the first bunny cop ever, Judy's put to the test throughout the entirety of the movie, and she fights to keep her place as someone to be respected and not merely thought of as "cute."

judy-hopps-zootopia-style

Products: Shirt, Jeans, Hat, Boots

Because it's easier to replicate Judy Hopps' farmer look than her meter maid or police officer uniform on a daily basis (unless you happen to be a cop or it's Halloween), stick to the above outfit for inspiration. All you need is a plaid, button-down shirt, slim-fitting jeans, and a floppy straw hat. While you can't see Judy's shoes, we assume they're brown cowboy boots—though hardened sneakers would probably work just as well.

Nick Wilde

Credit: ScreenshotCredit: Screenshot

Nick Wilde, a sardonic red fox voiced by Jason Bateman, is the reluctant buddy to Judy Hopps' cop adventures. As the natural, "untrustworthy" predator to bunnies and other small mammals, Nick's also the victim of constant discrimination and verbal abuse; as such, we meet him as a cynical adult who goes through life as a con artist.

Throughout the film, Judy comes to accept Nick as someone who's good-natured on the inside and a real friend. Though he's a little rough around the edges, Nick is a genuine helper to Judy, and even becomes a cop himself at the end of the film!

nick-wilde-zootopia-style

Products: Blouse, Shorts, Sandal, Sunglasses, Headwrap

It goes without saying that I took a much more liberal take on Nick's outfit than the rest of the Zootopia cast, and that's because it's geared to look stylish and accessible for a female college crowd. So, tuck in a yellow blouse under beige shorts, slip on a floral headwrap, and tie on some blue thong sandals. Also, don't forget the shades—Nick would totally approve.

Gazelle

Credit: ScreenshotCredit: Screenshot

Gazelle, played by Colombian singer-songwriter Shakira, is the Shakira of Zootopia's metropolitan setting. She's a well-known popstar and social activist, advocating for equality and harmony within the city through her songs and peaceful protests. If you have a spare three minutes, definitely listen to Shakira/Gazelle's song "Try Anything" from the movie soundtrack: it's really uplifting and catchy!

Outfit inspired by Gazelle from Zootopia

Products: Crop Top, Skirt, Leg Warmers, Shoes, Earring

The Row Carry All Tote:Marni Contrast Tote Bag

Categories:Other Brands

If this tote were a cocktail, it would be a perfectly balanced martini, stirred and not shaken. One that goes down nice and smooth. It would also be one overpriced drink. Those damn Olsens! They’re so good at what they’re doing these days, I almost forget to scoff at the price tags of their bags.
The Row’s super-slick leather tote might look square at first glance, but it’s actually a super-great, functional bag. The top remains flat upon closing it up, thanks to two slim flaps that overlap and clasp together, all neat and tidy. But you don’t have to work for it; the flaps have magnets built in, so you don’t have to strategically match them up. Structured and rigid from some angles, its hardness is countered by rounded edges. The result? A subtle sense of uniqueness, courtesy of a carryall that’s as easy on your eyes as it is on your hands. The Row Carry All Tote

My new perfect bag: done and done, with no hesitation required. When Marni nails it, you can bet I jump all over it. And this fierce yet neutral tote has everything I’m looking for this fall. It combines all the contrasting elements that make a practical bag desirable, sans compromise. With a flash of gold metal posing as frame-top closure, it’s got the ladylike feel of a treasure yet enough spunk for a sense of youthful living. Want the beauty of a nude shoulder bag, but can’t deal with watching it get dirty? A black lambskin body juxtaposed against creamy beige gussets, folded naturally and effortlessly, solves that problem. And finally, single slim strap, free of hefty hardware, ensures this will be lightweight as you carry it around all day (I know I can’t wait to). Cosmopolitan snobs, take note: this is a quintessential city girl’s bag, confident and in charge. Be ready to be the same.
