Let’s admit it, pink bags are fun to have but not easy to pull off without one coming across trying hard to look dainty. I have always been a fan of the Moschino Jacket flap bag but in Barbie pink for the Spring 2015 special Capsule collection, this bag is now an official must-have! Price is USD1,695 for the small size (left image) and USD1,995 for the medium size (right image), available at Moschino website.

Gucci Spring 2015 – Back to the 1970s

Gucci enjoyed its first iconic decade in the 1970s where celebrities could not get enough of anything Gucci. That happened again in the 1990s and I am hoping it would happen again this decade. For Spring 2015, Gucci is back to its 1970s self. While I love everything about the prints and the RTW, the bags are still not delivering the hit I miss from Gucci. The canvas strap on the bags are interesting especially in Gucci signature green and red web but I don’t find myself rushing to get one anytime soon. Maybe the Jackie shoulder one in military green above, if I really fancy it when I play with it but as far as the first look is concerned, they are another promising collection, waiting for a big hit.

Only Jeremy Scott at Moschino could bring Barbie alive without looking tacky. Spring 2015 will surely look alive with Barbie pink and other Barbie colors around. Judging by how Moschino has changed they way people dress up over the past one year, let’s just say we would expect to see many life sized Barbies walking around soon. Check out the Barbie capsule collection on moschino.com now.

Prada Spring 2015 – Vintage Now Vintage Forever

Prada sits firmly at the apex of Milan fashion, or the entire fashion industry alongside the likes of Chanel, Dior and Saint Laurent, for that matter so it is obvious that the show has always been the most anticipated during the Milan Fashion Week. After the sweet, exciting and colorful pop treats we have been seeing with Fendi and Moschino, Prada Spring 2015 offers an antithesis. There is something about Prada collection that remains classic but nowhere boring. I love the bags in this collection (immaculate, strong, classic and exciting) and I am sure many will too. If you zoom into the clothes, as sharp and well put together they seem from afar, look closer and you will see the attention to details for making the seams and hems frayed, how a classic piece should be after years of wear and tear. If you love vintage pieces like I do, you will have even better appreciation for this collection. Prada is a true genius.

Fendi Spring 2015 – New Take on Icons

Fendi has made many new icons for itself over the past few seasons and for Spring 2015, it is all about taking those icons and putting new spin on them such as resizing and decorating them. There is almost nothing I don’t love about the new Micro Peekaboo, Mini Karlito, Mini Baguette, Small 3Jours and the Baguette in tick shoulder strap. The It bag house obviously did not disappoint.

Anya Hindmarch Spring 2015 Bags – NOT a Child’s Play

What do you most fondly remember about from Anya Hindmarch bags? For me, it is the Be-a-Bag that introduced me to the brand about 10 years ago and then the “I am NOT a Plastic Bag” bag that made me pull all the strings I got to get in a green one from London, out of Singapore. While I love prim and proper design ala UK, I love some quirkiness and wackiness alongside it too and for Spring 2015, Anya Hindmarch just showed what I would categorize as one of the best bag collections I have seen of late. Let the images do the talking, or doodling, whatever. I am in awe!

PS: See that pencil shaped pencil case bag charm out there? It might just give the Fendi bag bug the run for its money next season. Also that green snakeskin Featherweight Ebury tote with smiley perforation… stunning!

Gucci 50 Years in Japan Flora Bamboo Bag

For those of you who still don’t know, Gucci celebrates 50 years of being in Japan this year. To commemorate this golden jubilee, a special Flora collection is released only in Japan market and it includes this gorgeous Bamboo bag with the Flora canvas and leather trim in white, sky blue or beige.

My mom has a gorgeous Gucci Jackie bag with the black Flora canvas and black leather trim, which she considers a classic Gucci treasure and this Bamboo bag is definitely going to tickle her fancy too, or so I had thought. Priced at JPY159,840 or equivalent to almost SGD2,000, I am not sure how well it has done commercially so far in the Japanese market. While I love anything Gucci Bamboo and Flora in general, they seem to have lost its cool and current appeal over the years. Gucci really needs to rejuvenate its classic icons because they are starting to get pretty but oldie and even my mom thinks so. What do you think?
