LIKE JEWELS FOR THE FEET

As a firm believer that nothing compares to good quality shoes to achieve maximum personal style, this Autumn/Winter Collection 2012 from Chrissie Morris are definitely buzzing through my current shoes radar.

Just like Diana Vreeland said, “First, I’d put money into shoes. Marvelous shoes.” There’s no second doubt to have these babies, marvelous babies from a Brit designer, Chrissie Morris. She debuted her first collection in Spring 2008, and was named the winner of Italian Vogue’s “Who’s On Next” competition and Best New Talent from US Conde Nast’s Footwear News.

All produced within one country, in this case, Italy, and made completely by hand, her collections are very geometric, sort of Art Deco-ish and every single details seem to push to the extreme. Towering heels, exotic materials, will definitely turn us into the right kind of trouble. 

BEWITCHED COLORS

When the nude colors went gothic. These are the new collection from Topshop Make Up which reportedly will be launch in mid October 2012. The new timeless capsule collection, named “Dark Side of Nude”. 

Expect to see nude color for lip shade in contrast with deep claret. High shine, metallics in chic black packaging? I am sold. 

ICONIC BAG: REINCARNATED

One of the must have for celebrities and fashion elites is reincarnated for Autumn/Winter 2012.

This IT bag is actually a cross between Mulberry’s classic Bayswater and Elkington (their men’s briefcase). Simply known now as Alexa, this bag was conceived in tribute to Alexa Chung, Britain’s broadcaster/model/fashion icon. No, this bag wasn’t designed by Alexa herself, nor it’s a collaboration. Emma Hill, Mulberry’s creative director once said, “Mulberry has this tradition of naming bags after girls. But it wasn’t a collaboration, she didn’t contribute to the design process.” That was after Mulberry creatives saw Alexa carried an Elkington. They thought it looked good on her, and they decided to make a new version of Elkington. Voila! There’s an Alexa bag.

For Autumn Winter 2012, Mulberry added a few bits (read: striking stud embellishments) forming a zig zag pattern to Alexa. Those rivet and tassel made them more tempting. This ZigZag collection was inspired by Aztec prints, and comes in ink blue, black and snow white color. I love the white ones. 

LOVE THIS!

I love this fashion ‘journal’ from one of my favorite store, The Papilion. Featuring their latest collection from Autumn Winter 2012, like Dries Van Noten, Stella McCartney, Carven, Tsumori Chisato and Comme des Garcons, with the essentials like bags and shoes, I’m so excited to see all the new season goodies in their two stores. Oh, and now, they have M by Missoni! Love them even more.
