Chanel’s Spring 2016 Travel-Friendly Accessories

Fashion

Chanel created a spectacle for the woman on the go in order to debut their spring 2016 ready-to-wear collection at Paris Fashion Week, as we covered after the show premiered. To continue the “Chanel Airlines” theme, designer Karl Langerfeld created a luggage and accessory collection that also walked the runway, but deserves more singled-out notoriety.

Chanel's Spring 2016 Travel-Friendly Accessories

With these new looks, a real fashionista will be able to travel in style. She can check her chic luggage, before taking her fabulous carry-on bag or backpack through the terminal and onto the plane, and finally to the destination, where she can saunter up to claim her luggage at baggage claim, so everyone waiting can see just who the wealthy owner of the gorgeous bag is.

There’s definitely a Chanel stamp that makes garments and accessories recognizable to the brand alone, and with the French label being world-famous, women travelling anywhere in the world can be sure to stand out in the crowd – more specifically the terminal.

Each bag available within the Chanel spring 2016 accessory collection features the unmistakable Chanel logo, and each carries its own unique charm. The first piece of rolling luggage was presented in classic Chanel, with the quilted black fabric. The owner of such a bag lives in the lap of luxury, or so she wishes to convey, and Karl Langerfeld clearly wished to cater to that woman’s needs.

The circular, convertible over-the-shoulder bag with red, white and blue on black was one of the most interesting Chanel bags for spring 2016, mainly for its subtlety without compromising the elegant flair of the brand.

There was certainly not a want for color in this collection, because Langerfeld chose colors from all areas of the color spectrum, making it hard to choose just one must-have bag from the line. The simple solution would be to buy them all, so you could travel in fashionable comfort for the rest of your life – or until Chanel comes out with a new accessory line! But for the fashion conscious woman with a tighter budget, there’s a tough decision ahead.

These bags are versatile for the fashion and travel worlds, because you don’t need to be all dressed up and ready for the jet-setting lifestyle in order to rock Chanel’s travel bags. The rolling luggage pulled by a jean-clad woman would be striking in any airport terminal, but that’s not to say dressing up would hurt the image.

Clearly any fashionable lady who wishes to portray an elegant persona shouldn’t stop with just the outfit and the bag, but must also display the jewels to polish off her look. So, of course, Chanel offered just that for spring 2016. Models in exquisite chunky jeweled bracelets and necklaces were as striking as models wearing classic Chanel logo bracelets and sunset shaded aviators, showing you don’t have to dress up in ritzy garments in order to rock these fabulous bags when you strut down the airport terminal – but you always have that option!

Louis Vuitton Nano Collection

Louis Vuitton

louis_vuitton_nano-collection1Having already previewed these babies up close whilst in Tokyo last week for Louis Vuitton’s F/W15 press presentation, I can safely say this. THEY ARE TOO FREAKING ADORABLE TO RESIST. Yes, I’m talking about the new Nano collection, which takes house classics (and a few new bags), places them under Wayne Szalinski’s shrink ray and, you guessed it, shrunk.

louis_vuitton_nano-collection3And by shrunk, I mean really, really tiny, with each fitting comfortably in the palm of my hand, which should make them around 20 cm from end to end max. 7 different styles are up for grabs (you could actually do it quite literally as well, seeing how small they are), from icons like the Alma, Lockit, Noé and Speedy to recent additions like the Pallas, W and the Turenne.

louis_vuitton_nano-collection2Available in a variety of colours and finishes (some bags, for example, only come inMonogram Canvas, while others like the Nano Alma only come in Epi), I’ve been told they will be released progressively from 8 July, with more colours added to the collection right up to September or October.

Last but not least, the collection’s prices, which you’ll be wanting to know after you’ve decided which bag you’re getting. Because the collection encompasses bags in either canvas and leather, the price range is pretty wide, from SGD1110 for the Nano Noé and Nano Speedy to SGD1510 for the Nano Pallas and the Nano Turenne. TheNano Alma in Epi is also SGD1510, and moving up we’ve got the Nano Lockit andNano W that come in at SGD2340 apiece (full leather, that’s why).

Le Mal Afrique Victorian Red & Black Glass Beads Necklace/Bracelet ($ 2,200)

Mr. Knight awakens our sensibilities for African jewelry through his Le Mal Afrique necklace and bracelet collection. These remarkable pieces of historic, African trading beads date as far back as the 1600s and as recent as the turn of the 20th Century. The beads are incorporated with diamond encrusted balls, vintage Art Deco and Edwardian diamonds and rich, simple, gold lobster claw clasps. Mr. Knight takes the Sicilian philosophy of Bella Brute (the beautiful and the ugly) to create this unique collection. The rough beads – some buried for centuries in the rich, African soil – are combined with glittering diamonds. The contrasts are sublime, and this collection is a wearer’s delight.

Paul & Joe Spring/Summer 2016 Collection – Paris Fashion Week

Fashion

For the Paul & Joe spring/summer 2016 ready-to-wear collection, Sophie Albou goes young surfing the USA. Metallic fabrics and tropical prints are key elements this season, and may remind some of you of Paul & Joe’s SS 2016 menswear collection, which took great advantage from this summer-y mood offering palm tree prints and Hawaiian shirts. These connections with her menswear collection do not end here: in fact, as we approach the heart of the line-up, we instantly spot Albou’s desire to give her womenswear line a more boyish attitude, which combines fashion trends from the Nineties with those from the next summer 2016.

Paul & Joe Spring/Summer 2016 Collection

Being the daughter of a clothing-company executive and of a fashion designer, Sophie Albou has always been a fashion enthusiast (a similar destiny she shares with compatriot Vanessa Bruno). Paris-based Albou founded her clothing line Paul & Joe in the mid-90s, which releases a menswear and a womanswear collection each season. She has often worked as a designer for many American fast-fashion companies, like Target, and we may say more in general that she gives her best when designing limited edition lines.

In line with her clothing collections, she has recently started a houseware line that takes inspiration from the motifs and prints used in her ready-to-wear collections. As we are about to see, the French fashion designers loves to mix every single aspect of her working life, menswear and womenswear’s collections included.

Those who instantly loved these fashion weeks’ main trends, like the futuristic trend and the boyish cuts, but are looking for a more ready-to-wear collection, will probably fall in love with Albou’s Paul & Joe spring 2016 collection and with what seems to be her coast to coast trip around the United States of America. The first part of the line-up takes us to the East Cost, Florida, and introduces us to sleek pink fabrics and pink palm tree prints, which adorn mannish suits, swimsuits and oversized shirts.

Sleek short jumpsuits and peg-top pants take us to the next phase, which is probably also the most casual part of the collection. Here we welcome late-Seventies-inspired outfits that include casual digger jeans, printed shirts and even ‘plain’ little back dresses, adorned with lace embroideries and combined with ankle boots. We may say that, from the East Coast, we have jumped to the Midwest.

From the Midwest to Las Vegas, the third part of the collection goes metallic and shows even more bare skin, thanks to the oversized shirtdresses, deep V-necklines and skimpy bikinis, covered with metallic-green palm motifs. As a fluid continuum of fashion styles, the metallic palm tree motifs flow into a boyish turnaround bringing sleek light blue suits with printed red shirts. The upcoming looks, instead, like to mix femininity with masculinity, playing with off-the-shoulder dresses, ruffled shirts, and pink dresses, both long and short.

The finale of the Paul & Joe spring 2016 runway show finally takes us to California with its Havana motifs and surfer-approved clothing pieces. Tennis blouses, short Hawaiian shorts and front-split long skirts are just a few examples of this range of looks, which skillfully combines all the other main styles and motifs spotted throughout the line-up.

Last but not least, we should not neglect Albou’s shoe offerings, because it is also thanks to the stylish pointy-toe shoes and metallic sneakers that the Paul & Joe spring/summer 2016 line-up has travelled successfully from Florida to California.
