The Runway Sniper #01
I am starting another new category, called 'The Runway Sniper'...since I am like a 'sniper', aiming at fabulous collections and 'sniping' out all the things I find interesting and worthy of making it into my blog:-)
Here's the first:
D&G Fall Winter 2008/2009 Man Bags
I am getting a revival of interest in D&G bags. I see an improvement in their designs of bags and accessories range. And this spring season, some of the bags and accessories has risen from 'tacky-dom' (the kingdom of all things tacky) and are worthy of burning holes in consumer pockets. (BTW, point to note, the Dolce Gabbana men's bags from their mainline has yet to improve at all. Their DG monograms is one of the worst looking and I wonder what is their fascination with that. Strange that their second line offer better choices.)
Fall Winter 2008 for men sees the continuing trend. The bags are lovely. Masculine, interesting details such as brass push lock buckles, patchwork leather and alternating lengths of leather pocket straps. I love the rich brown colour and washed leather, perfect for fall and even everyday use. The 1st bag is my favourite with the push lock buckle:-)
Can't wait for the bags to arrive in the stores later this year.
And plaids are the big trend this coming fall winter season.
