HERMES BOLIDE DOUBLE BOTTOM BAG

Hermes-Bolide-Double-Bottom-Bag

The Hermes Bolide Double Bottom Bag is an extremely iconic piece that will surely please bag aficionados and starting bag collectors alike. This new take on the design is something that catches the eye, and we’re about to elaborate more about this development.

The Bolide has a long history – it was first created in the year 1922 when the wife of Hermes’s owner, Emilie-Maurice Hermès, wanted a new bag to carry in while she went out for a ride in a car (which was also a new invention at that time). The Bolide was called a ‘Bugatti’ at that time, and was the first bag to ever incorporate some zips.

Lightweight and easy to carry, this piece is really something new! Never has Hermes shown the Bolide with a double bottom, that’s why it’s really a joy to have. It’s a swift calfskin with gold-plated hardware and zip fastening, with two flat inside pockets for organization. What else would you ever need? Surely, this baby will never go out of style.

Measuring 24cm x 27cm x 10cm (L x H x D), you can get your very own Bolide Double Bottom Bag for €6,400 EUR or £5,850 GBP via Hermes e-store.

Cartier C de Cartier Collection

Other Brands

cartier_c-de-cartier-collection1After that iconic red box, the adorable baby panther (that only seems to appear once a year over Christmas), precious jewellery and luxurious watches, Cartier is going for gold as far as fine leather goods are concerned, more specifically with the new C de Cartier collection that’s now available in Singapore. Having already previewed it over on Instagram (an illustrated montage by Jae Suk Kim and a mood shot by yours truly), here’s the post proper for everything C de Cartier.

cartier_c-de-cartier-collection2Decidedly feminine on the outside with its soft rounded edges that’s almost rubenesque, the inside is made for the modern woman on the go, made up of 3 different compartments that even the most OCD of you will find useful. Giving nothing away when it’s not in use, it opens up the moment you pop your hand in, be it into the roomy front or back compartments (one of which comes with a patch pocket that will fit the biggest of smartphones), or the middle compartment that’s anchored with a zipper where you’ll place important bits like your wallet or car keys.

With 2 additional smaller patch pockets in the middle compartment (good for name cards, discount/VIP cards and the like), even the smaller C de Cartier (yes, it comes in two sizes) will hold an iPad Mini with ease.

Measuring 34 cm by 24 cm and 41 cm by 26.5 cm for sizes Small and Mediumrespectively, there are subtle differences regarding the make for both sizes. The one in Small comes with a shoulder sling and shorter top handles, while the largerMedium has no sling but a longer drop which should allow you to wear the bag over the shoulder. Which also means the size you’ll get will be mostly dictated by what you intend to do with it, be it for work or for play.

cartier_fw15-c-de-cartier-collection3Now for the best part. Available in a beautiful variety of colours inspired by fine stones (an obvious link given its heritage as a fine jeweller), they are priced betweenSGD2850 and SGD3150, a reasonable amount given how expensive designer leather bags have become recently. In other words, the next time you’re at Cartier checking out the LOVE bracelet or the Tank watch, don’t forget to give these leather beauties a once-over as well.

H&M Launches a Capsule Collection by Ximon Lee In October

Fashion

Ximon Lee has been awarded the H&M design award for his androgynous apparel and his prospect as a designer. Ximon was the first menswear designer to receive this award in 2015, and this marks his second consecutive H&M design award recognition. If you like his quirky designs, you’ll be happy to get a piece from the Ximon Lee for H&M 2015 capsule collection that’s to get launched later in October.

Ximon Lee for H&M 2015 Lookbook

Ximon offers a fresh, new perspective as a designer, since he so recently graduated from Parson’s in 2014. In his time with H&M, the designer has shown his eye for unique silhouettes. As a proclaimed menswear designer, Ximon Lee has already shown that he can create a new bridge between men’s and women’s fashion. Since androgyny is already huge on the 2016 runway, there is no surprise H&M would create a line to celebrate it. In doing so, Ximon was given the perfect outlet to showcase his creative talent, while also playing to his strengths in menswear.

There’s no doubt the choice of this designer as the recipient of H&M’s reward was thought out and well-established. He has proved that his voice is strong enough to be heard in the fashion industry, and we know we’ll soon be seeing his looks on the streets, on men and women alike.

October 22nd marks the release date for the young designer’s eight-piece unisex collection. While many “androgynous” clothing lines tend to lean to one gender or the other (either showing masculine pieces with feminine aspects, or vice versa), Ximon has achieved a level of balance many designers haven’t quite been able to reach yet.

That is how the H&M award was given so precisely. With the goal of choosing a lesser-known designer who displays clear direction in his or her own fashion aesthetic, the brand’s choice was clear. Ximon is a young, new designer who has a head full of ideas and the technique to bring them to life.

In the past, he has demonstrated his talent when working with exaggerated shapes. He uses a variety of techniques to achieve these unique shapes, such as manipulating the volume or layering oversized garments on top of one another, and all while making sure not to lose the form of the garments. Working with oversized clothing can prove challenging, because as the garments become larger and larger than the model’s frame, it is difficult to maintain a coherent shape.

But Ximon Lee has clearly pulled it off in his past work, and H&M has recognized him for his accomplishments. It takes a cool-headed designer to create something so structured yet laidback for a person of any gender, so Ximon has earned his prestige.

There is a clear market in the fashion industry today for his abstract way of thinking. It’s uncommon to see a designer who identifies as a menswear designer to delve into androgyny on such a balanced level, because it is a trend most often seen in the middle of a feminine-dominated runway show.
