Louis Vuitton Poche Documents In Damier Graphite

Louis Vuitton Poche Documents in Damier Graphite

There is a love hate relationship going on for me when it comes to monogram patterns. Obnoxious when done excessively, a magnet for counterfeiting but undeniably timeless when done right.

And speaking of monogram pattern, I am sure Louis Vuitton comes to the top of mind for many people. I have disliked the over flooding of their monogram bags in the brand’s prime days. Everyone carried their bags for the brand and not the style. It was all flash your cash with little taste. However, all is not lost for these patterns... when used with discretion, monogram prints can be a huge style statement.

In my opinion, monogram works best on small leather goods. And Louis Vuitton’s Poche Documents cases is a great sized bag to flaunt the pattern. An endearing design over the years, Louis Vuitton have since expanded their Poche Documents range from just Monogram Canvas(USD810) to include Damier Graphite Checks (USD1230) and Epi Leather (USD1360) variants.

Today, I was browsing online and found this amazing picture of this well dressed guy spotting a fantastic Poche Documents in Damier Canvas. It immediately got my attention. Loving the sizing (Measures 14.2” x 10.6” x 0.8”) and that extra exterior zipper detail that gives the man clutch an added modern touch. A gusset on one side allows for expansion should you have more things to carry. The timeless and versatile design matches up suited looks perfectly, any season of the year. Now I am tempted to get this as my Christmas gift this year!

Fendi Fall Winter 2014 Mens Backpack

Below: Backpacks are no longer reserved for school... Adult designs from many luxury brands are putting them under the fashion spotlight. This one from Fendi's Fall Winter 2014 mens collection gets all the right ticks... modern angular flap cover, interesting zipper details on the sides and masculine styling means it's a must have for the season! Especially cool when decorated with those cute bag bugs charm... Loving this nylon crocodile printed version:-)
Below: A more timeless alternative, albeit more pricey version is the Selleria leather options... gorgeous leather and well worth every penny!
Fendi Fall Winter 2014 Mens Backpack: Selleria Leather and Crocodile Printed Nylon

Fendi is currently my favourite bag brand, being on a roll generating great interest thru their bag bugs and Mens Peekaboo Tote. Everyone wants a piece of those decorative furry critters or the handsome uniquely designed bag. But beyond all the hype about these popular items, I am also loving some of the incredible men bag designs that came down their Fall Winter 2014 mens runway.

One such bag is the backpack with an angular edge flap cover, adorn with interesting zipper details on both sides. This is one modern backpack that puts luxury and functionality seamlessly together. The modernity of the piece also serves as a great ‘canvas’ to hang those lovely bag bugs charm and add a little humour to the very adult design. There is definitely no dispute being ‘high school kids’ when you are carrying this gorgeous backpack.

For timeless style, the Selleria leather version (Approx SGD2785 at Matches Fashion) are to die for. Or opt for the nylon crocodile print version for that added visual zest. I love the latter for the lighter weight as compared to the leather counterpart.

I want one! Backpack simply makes commuting so much easier:-) Will be perfect for my year end getaway after Christmas.

Launching 6 November worldwide: Alexander Wang x H&M Mens Bags and Shoes

If you are a H&M designer collaboration fan, a sports enthusiast, a worshiper of all things black...then the upcoming Alexander Wang x H&M Collection will tickle your fancy.

Sportive influences abound in the entire collection, offering fans a slice of Alexander Wang’s urban attitude style at attainable prices. Although I am not entirely sold on the looks... but I am sure a lot of urbanites will be making a beeline for the collection once it launches worldwide and online on 6 November.

So let’s take a closer look at what’s on offer at the accessories front...namely the bags and shoes. Expect gym ready duffle bags, backpacks to spice up your fitness sessions. An all black ensemble of sleek metal hardware, oversized branded zipper pulls and scuba/rubber materials are signatures of the collection. Water repellent is key consideration as well, so you can be sure these backpacks will come in handy during year end’s rainy wet weather. The footwear comes with Scuba diving inspired styling, made with rubber, leather and scuba materials.

All in all, this collection exemplifies hi performance gear for the active modern individual.  What’s critical now is to start pumping up those muscles, so you look the part when you buy into the collection this Thursday (6 Nov)!
