NEW! Alexander Wang x H&M Advertising Campaign featuring iconic supermodels and sportsmen

The highly anticipated Alexander Wang x H&M collection is not too far in sight. Launching 6 November, teaser imagery of the collection pieces have started to trickle onto the cybersphere to satisfy many fans’ curiosity.

So here’s to further quench that appetite to know what the collection will bring. This time, in the form of the advertising imagery.

A very sporty aesthetic in line with Alexander Wang’s designs... it is befitting that actual sportsmen, such as English soccer player Andy Carroll and kickboxer Rivaldino dos Santos are the faces in the new Alexander Wang X H&M advertising campaign. For the ladies, four supermodels: Joan Smalls, Raquel Zimmermann, Isabeli Fontana and Natasha Poly
fronts the campaign.

The Alexander Wang X H&M collection will launch on 6 November at H&M Orchard Building and H&M ION Orchard.

Bally Fall Winter 2014 Voyage 12H Bag

Below: Bally's FW2014 Voyage 12H Bag could be the next 'best' thing to the highly coveted Hermès Victoria 43... or is it? Even the sizing is at 43cm width... I leave you to make your own conclusion... :-)

Great minds think alike? Imitation is the greatest form of flattery? Inspired?  When we see a new design that looks similar to a precedent design... these descriptions will probably come to mind.

So I shall leave you guys to arrive at the appropriate response when you see this latest Fall Winter 2014 Voyage 12H bag from Swiss luxury brand, Bally.

If you have been eyeing an Hermès Victoria 43 for the longest time but not able to fork out the exorbitant price that comes with it... then perhaps this new Bally Voyage 12H bag will fill that void in your bag closet. Featuring a wide rectangular silhouette, minimal details and longer leather handles that ends with an angular shape design... this bag definitely brings to mind the iconic Hermès Victoria 43. But I shall reserve my comments here, you can make your own conclusion. At a price of USD2200 and measuring 43cm x 28cm x 18cm ... perhaps this is the next best thing without Hermès Victoria 43's bank hemorrhaging effect.

Any takers?

Loewe Amazona 75 Extra Large Bag

Below: Under the stewardship of creative director, Jonathan Anderson, Spanish Luxury Label Loewe not only gets new branding, new packaging, new design director but even classics such as the iconic Amazona bag gets an update! Check out the new proportion of the new Loewe Amazona 75 Extra Large Bag...

New creative director, Jonathan Anderson sure knows how to stir up some design shake up at Loewe following his stewardship. Not only has the anagram, brand identity and packaging been revamped... even the iconic Amazona bag have been reborn in new proportions.

For the boys, we are all too familiar with the Loewe 24H Amazona Bag. They were some of the most gorgeous man bags in terms of proportion and design. Now Jonathan Anderson has introduced a new silhouette to this favourite classic. Being taller and more squarish, a proportion based on the 1975 trapezoidal silhouette of the original Amazona... these new Amazona 75 Extra Large Bag shows great promise to win over male fans!

With key characteristics of a light unstructured body, in suede or an embossed Anagram exterior encased with calf leather corner patches, they look sportier and more casual than their predecessor. A good bag to throw around in office or weekends... versatile and easy to mix and match. Love the all black anagram version... finally a repeated logo pattern that does not look offensively tacky. Love the new Loewe! Retails for SGD 4790.
