A review of today's modern fashion, design, and style.

Toting The Trend…Or Not?


When it comes to bags, Céline seem to be repeatedly hitting the nail on the head with their collections. It’s all about sturdy shapes and stylishly maximising on holding capacity- welcome to the era of winged totes and clutches with presence:

But what does one do when authentic Céline creations are reserved only for the financial elite and high-street replicas are everywhere?  One turns to the internet in search of more affordable arm candy which has managed to evade the finely tuned radars of the trend following masses. Here are some of my findings from YOOX.com* that I think would add that sought after air of nonchalant “Cool” to any day out:

8 shoulder bag, £157– Spacious winged shoulder bag also available in cream and blue

bag 4

Gaetano Navarra large fabric bag, £69 from £103– Slim and practical, this white accessory could brighten any dark ensemble.

bag5bag 6Nardelli clutch, £49 from £90– Perfect with a white summer dress.

bag 7


Lest we forget the fashion industry is driven by creative individuals and as a firm believer in stylish innovation, I ask you: Why not take a risk and flaunt a piece which plays with a trend? Look for items which carry an idea further, think different textures and colours. This year’s biggest successes have been defined by impact, so stand out by subverting the norm.

*A must for any spend-thrift looking for incredible discounts on designer and high quality goods.
