For Love & Lemons 2016 Swimwear Is All About Ruffles and Lace

Writer:fashion Date:2016-5-21 10:12 Saturday Categories:Fashion

As soon as For Love & Lemons debuted its swimwear line back in December, we immediately longed for the summer to be able to wear those skimpy, sensual designs, and now that we can eventually see the For Love & Lemons summer 2016 swimwear collection, we couldn’t be happier. When Gillian Rose Kern and Laura Hall, the creative minds behind the Los Angeles-based label, revealed they were getting ready to sell a unique swimwear line all over the world, we were sure the result was going to be something extraordinary and overly enticing. With a strong lingerie-allure and a delicate feminine Californian touch, the For Love & Lemons 2016 swimsuits are all about ruffles and lace appliqués, and are finally available online.

Famous for their lingerie and knitwear creations, Kern and Hall decided it was about time to explore the world and literally navigate through new oceans, combining their hallmark style with cozy fabrics that could be worn all year round on the beach (depending on where you live!). To top it all off, they even custom-designed most of the details, such as the lace scallop edges you are about to see, as well as the dreamlike crochet embroideries that are just too cute to handle.

To hit it big, Kern and Hall asked for Dutch model Marloes Horst to pose for the camera lens of Zoey Grossman, whose romantic artistic touch just perfectly goes along with the collection’s overall romantic twist.

With a color palette that focuses on dusty, dark-toned reds and blues, as well as pastel colors such as blush pink and lilac, the For Love & Lemons 2016 swimwear line-up will just help enhance any kind of skin tone, from the darkest to the fairest. Although the majority of the proposals are monochrome, leaving it all up to the crochet and lace detailing to spice things up, some ensembles got adorned with equally flirty botanical prints, just to satisfy those who want something in between lingerie-inspired pieces and traditional swimsuits.

Geometric lace floral embroideries, lace-up detailing and high-waist slips will just make you wish for more FLL proposals, whether they are bikinis or one-pieces. Unlike bikinis, the latter could be described more as retro-inspired than lingerie-influenced, mainly thanks to the use of ruffles and Forties silhouettes. To top it all off, FLL also opted for a few sheer white bikinis that will take anyone back to the Sixties, and are basically just to die for.

In addition, the collection brings in stylish cover-ups to match with your favorite swimsuit and walk off the beach in style too. If there’s anything better than designing swimsuits, testing them out at the world’s most beautiful beaches might be close to perfection.

Fall-Winter 2016 Mens Louis Vuitton: Preview

Writer:fashion Date:2016-5-21 10:06 Saturday Categories:Louis Vuitton

IMAGE: LOUIS VUITTON

It’s early days yet before Louis Vuitton’s Fall-Winter 2016 Mens collection is upon us, but a sneak peek never hurt anyone, right? And because I’ve been the studying the press kit intently for everyone’s sake here, here’s what I know.

As far as bags and SLGs go, there are 3 main pillars for the season, Monogram Illusion(shown above), Monogram Eclipse (which you’ll see later in the post) and Camouflagepieces, which I’ve already featured a couple days back.

IMAGES: LOUIS VUITTON

Then there are all the accessories, and there are many, from thin neck scarves to stoles to other bits and bobs from key holders to necklaces and sunglasses. The Volez,Voguex, Voyagez brooches are love, that Trousse Toilette in Monogram Eclipse is functional and that signet ring is something that’s definitely on my own wish list.

And like I mentioned earlier, this is just a quick sneak peek, so there will definitely be more updates in the weeks to come. In case you’re wondering though, that ‘trunk’ you see in the first image is actually a tool box. More specifically, a mini tool box that comes with a shoulder sling as well. Kim Jones’ take on the Petite Malle for the guys? #mindblown

As promised, here’s a peek at a new bag from the F/W16 collection, the Monogram Eclipse Backpack Explorer that’s part-backpack, part-tote and all butch. Butch because well, it’s definitely for the more manly amongst you, the 44 cm by 30 cm by 16 cm backpack that’s big enough for you to lug around the kitchen sink and then some. No word on the price yet, but if you prefer something ‘cleaner’, the Backpack Explorer will also come in Taiga Mat, a new take on the traditional Taiga leather that’s touted to be lighter and more matte. Haven’t seen either yet in person, so expect more updates to come.

PurseForum Roundup – May 20

Writer:fashion Date:2016-5-21 9:58 Saturday Categories:Other Brands

Happy Friday! We are back with another edition of the PurseForum Roundup. The PurseForum is busy around the clock as members from all over the world share stories, advice, reveals and so much more. Over the years, the PurseForum has evolved to include several lifestyle areas such as Home & Garden and Books & Music, and we also have areas to discuss health, relationships, careers and many other topics. It’s easy to join, so if you have not yet become part of our family, please do.

For our Roundup this week, we dashed to a few of our favorite subforums for quick peeks and reveals. We also spent some quality time in Hermès,  and we found a great bag restoration in Louis Vuitton.

Chloe-Drew-Bag-Unboxing

In Chloé this week, we found a brand new Drew. This is a bag that took some searching, and we are glad that Marylicious was able to find her dream Drew in time for Mother’s Day and share with us! A year is a long time to look for a bag, but this one was definitely worth the wait. Paris Magic is trying to decide on a new Marcie, and at the time of this writing, there is still time for you to weigh in. We love when our members put their heads together to make a perfect bag match happen.

Louis-Vuitton-Zippy-Wallet

Chynadoil1 treated us to a peek inside her new Louis Vuitton Zippy wallet, and it’s delicious! Louis Vuitton is one of our busiest subforums, and this hot brand consistently turns out irresistible Small Leather Goods (SLGs).

Louis-Vuitton-Keepall-DIY-Paint

One of our favorite threads this week comes from shoppaholic, who decided it was high time to make a change to the Vachetta leather on her Keepall, a LV classic. We see this kind of thing here and there on DIY sites, but when our members take the plunge, it is all the more exciting.

Louis-Vuitton-Keepall-Bag

And we love the results–Shopp did a fantastic job and the new bag is perfection.

And now for some quick reveals around the Forum!

Kate-Spade-Bag-Gucci-Blooms-Wallet

We shared some Gucci Tian bags and accessories last week. This week, in the Kate Spade subforum, we found this pretty Gucci Tian wallet accompanying this Empire Red Doris in the Which Kate Spade are You Wearing Today thread, courtesy of Nan246. Also in Kate Spade, we have a brand new shoe thread going, so if Kate’s shoes are your thing, this may be just what you are looking for.

Massaccessi-Bags

TenKrat has fallen hard for Massaccesi! Not at all surprising, as these gorgeous bags are well made and styled to perfection. If you are thinking of a white summer bag, check out this beautiful Flora, also part of TenKrat’s enviable collection.

Chanel-255-Chevron-Flap-Bag

All of our members know what a HG bag is: the Holy Grail, a bag that haunts your dreams and keeps you checking with your Sales Associates on the regular. Dextersmom found her HG Chanel this week, and fans of the brand’s stunning chevron pattern shared an audible collective gasp when she revealed this beauty.

Hermes-Boxes

Raina1981 has been busy at Hermès, and we were, of course, anxious to see what was inside those orange boxes! Going to the “Mother Ship” (as Hermès fans affectionately call the flagship store at Faubourg St.-Honoré) is always exciting, and even more so if one is able to purchase a Kelly or Birkin. We won’t spoil the surprise, but suffice it to say that Raina1981 had plenty of excitement and definitely added to her handbag collection.

Hermes-Bolide-Bags

Hermesdaisuki caught us up on her growing collection this week, too. The Bolide is one of Hermès’s original handbags, dating back to 1923. If two bags are better than one, then certainly four bags are better than two–visit Hermesdaisuki’s thread to see more of these splendid classics.

Hermes-Birkin-Unboxing

Rami00 has been working on her ten bag collection for some time, carefully selecting each bag so that a set of ten will do. Her final bag is the iconic and classic Birkin, and this was the week she topped of her collection with the ultimate bag in the perfect color and leather. While a Birkin is a huge investment, it got us thinking of the funds spent on bags that don’t last, versus a bag like this that will last forever. What do you think?

That wraps up this edition of the PurseForum Roundup, and that was quite an ending! We are glad you dropped in and hope to see you here next week for another edition.

CHANEL SEAMLESS GREEK BOY BRICK BAG

Writer:fashion Date:2016-5-21 9:45 Saturday Categories:Other Brands

Chanel-Seamless-Greek-Boy-Brick-Bag

Remember the Boy Brick Bag? The flagrantly expensive shoulder bag, inspired by Lego and worn by the most famous celebrities?

Well, the bag is back.

For those that have missed the opportunity, now it is the chance to get one for your wardrobe. The Chanel Boy Brick Bag is a rare design – unique and timeless.

Let’s brag more about it…

The size is comparable to the mini bag. The beauty about the Chanel Boy Brick Bag is in the design. You see, on the front there are six bricks (now you know why its called the boy brick) decorated and beautified with an extremely large vintage CC logo on the front.

The chains are large enough to wear on your shoulder or cross body. For this season, Chanel has added a new print – the seamless Greek Print, which is the black pattern in the center of the bag.

The nice texture and the combination color of black and gold makes this accessory an everyday item and easy to wear from day to night, even from Spring to the Winter season. Measuring 4.7’ x 5.9’ x 2.4’ inches, priced at 3250 euro (and expected price of around $4300 USD), available via Chanel boutique.
