So what do you think?

The Design

Or you can just buy it as an investment because you like collecting Boys. These Boy Chanel WOCs are the ones that you want to bring with when having fine dine with your friends. And the best of all, without any hype, you can never go wrong with these. Always in-style. Forever-trending and better than investing stocks.

These Boy WOCs are nicely built without the quilting, but instead the centers are crafted with two-tone braided-patterns in lambskin. The two-tone eliminates the boredom out of the bag and creates a touchy and lovely contrast. The middle features the iconic studded clasp that everyone fashion girl loves. And what’s best of all? These are unique designs because they will be gone when the season is over.

And if you doubt whether this Boy will be useful or not. Ask yourself; is there a moment when you need this beautiful thing? Of course there is.

ESSAY: IS FASHION OVER FUR?

CATEGORIES:Other Brands

Fur was long a sign of luxury and status. But as we move into the 21st century, it has become more of a faux pas to wear. With luxury fashion houses such as Gucci recently announcing the decision to go fur free, using animal skin is quickly  becoming antiquated. Other fashion brands such as Armani, Hugo Boss and Ralph Lauren have also gone fur free in recent years.

Gucci’s announcement made in October 2017 caused major headlines around the globe. “Gucci going fur free is a huge game changer. For this powerhouse to end the use of fur because of the cruelty involved will have a huge ripple effect throughout the world of fashion. A staggering 100 million animals a year still suffer for the fur industry, but that can only be sustained for as long as designers continue to use fur and consumers purchase it,” says Kitty Block, president of Humane Society International.

WHY FUR IS NO LONGER CHIC

Fur is losing popularity amongst luxury brands and there are multiple factors to explain why. Animal rights activists groups such as PETA and Respect for Animals have pushed for brands to stop using fur for years now. “Technology is now available that means you don’t need to use fur,” Gucci CEO Marco Bizzarri told Vogue. “The alternatives are luxurious. There is just no need.”

Let’s look into the specifics of Gucci’s recent announcement. The brand will be fur free by the spring 2018 season. For the past ten years, the company has invested into synthetic leathers as well as more sustainable resources. Likewise, Gucci will auction off its remaining animal fur items with proceeds going to animal rights organizations.

Another reason for more fashion brands moving away from fur can be linked to consumers themselves. If you go to a Facebook or Twitter page for brand which uses fur or tests cosmetic products on animals, you will often see consumers writing comments expressing their disappointment. Additionally, a focus on the environment is more important for the millennial consumer. And the group is said to count for more than half of Gucci’s customers.

WHAT'S THE BIG DEAL ABOUT FUR?

Although many fashion houses still produce leather goods, there are several reasons why fur is seen as a particularly cruel practice.

ALEXANDER MCQUEEN BASKET BAGS

CATEGORIES:Other Brands

Alexander-McQueen-Basket-Bag

When I think about Alexander McQueen, I think about royal fashion pieces and skulls. With royal fashion pieces, I mean ‘really’ luxurious items that are made for the queens and princesses, like the Box Clutches. But recently we’re seeing more neutral, minimalistic handbags just like this Alexander McQueen Basket Bags. Well, is this a good sign or not?

The Design

I love the distinctive shape of the Basket Bag as well as the solid color and minimalistic look. You can carry this handbag anywhere, anytime with any outfit. Even the logo of the house has been crafted so tiny that you won’t see it unless you zoom-in. Like it or not?

The Basket Bag has that curvy shape like a shopping bag. It’s made from calf leather, so you won’t need to baby it all day long or worrying getting easily damaged. It features two strong handles and it will hold even when you carry heavier items. So is this a good investment piece?

They come in single colors, but there are many to choose. For the upcoming seasons, shades like nude are the perfect match.

The Interior

The inside is made in suede lining for the maximal softness. There you can find one large compartment to store your essentials. It’s big enough to carry your iPad, so maybe it’s also good for work. Inside you will also find a beautiful zipped pouch that can be detached. So is this tote to evening?

The Prices And Sizes

Measuring 12’ x 13.5’ x 4.5’ (H x W x D) inches, priced at $1290 USD, €990 EUR, £950 GBP, $1580 SGD, ¥142000 JPY, $8735 HKD.
