ICB SPRING/SUMMER 2016 COLLECTION – NEW YORK FASHION WEEK

Fashion

As New York Fashion Week is on the go unveiling creative collections of famous fashion designers for the upcoming spring/summer 2016 season, we are thrilled to see every single piece. Though, frankly, surprising people with something very new and original is very hard considering the unlimited experience that they’ve had seeing literally anything done on the catwalk. The ICB brand has just come up with a pretty unusual spring/summer 2016 collection of ready-to-wear pieces by the new creative director Makoto Takada, and it is apt to bring a big surprise. During the long 21 years of its existence the brand has not gained much popularity, though the two previous seasons seemed to prove that the new designer is determined for changes. This is Makoto’s third try to boost the brand up by new ideas and it might prove to the point.

ICB Spring/Summer 2016 Collection

As long as shirting was Prabal Gurung’s signature step for the brand’s pieces, we see a sort of continuation here with a lot of strict shirt-dresses, suits and classic straight pants, which are at the same time novelties. Having the image of a corporative worker in his mind, the designer went for creating numbers that would suit the strict dress code and be different at the same time. He brought here the common oxford shoes and embellished them with unexpected feathers that were stitched in India. These shoes look like a weird combo of sneakers, loafers and sandals for the open back, which looks a little confusing. And for a brighter imagery of an inside-heart rebel, Takada made classic pantsuits with oversize straight pants, prolonged blazer and a shirt in the form of a dress. The latter would look pretty adorable worn by itself, though with this kind of match it loses some of its charm making the model seem overclothed.

We do like certain numbers in the ICB spring/summer 2016 collection, like the light-blue shirt-dress-coat kind of thing with a white dress underneath that though strange, but works really well, or the coral-red knee-length dress with wide mesh inserts that are again mind-contradicting showing so much skin and closing everything at the same time. The black dress of the same kind is also very beautiful and much wearable ideal for work, everyday walks and night-outs. Many pieces of peculiar interest are the peachy pink pantsuits, wide beige dresses, black-and-white tube skirts with matching tops, a lot of light-color tops, shirts and pants that come in most unexpected matches worn over and under. For the women, who will buy these, there are little secret surprises: in the strict-structure blazer a piece of nude crepe is sewed in a way that it shows out only in motion, sheer grid in black wool trousers, delicate feathers on the blue shirt’s chest.

ICB Spring/Summer 2016 Collection

The ICB spring 2016 collection was created with a peculiar inspirational background: a Chicago-based nanny named Vivian Maier, who became famous posthumously, gave the idea of self-confidence, belief in his talent and enjoying it on his own not needing any appreciation from the outside world. The woman took pictures of random people giving the photos touching narratives, and her rolls of an unfinished film captured between ‘50s and ’70s much later were found bringing her fame. Takada has his own explanation of things: using the self-appreciation concept, he created this peculiar line. We could hardy call it the most exquisite and promising collection, though we truly wish that the genuine inspirational background will help make it a success.

Chanel-Flap-Bag

Friday! Thank goodness. We’re happy you joined us today for another edition of thePurseForum Roundup, in which we wander the aisles of the PurseForum and select beautiful bags and shoes for you, along with interesting conversations. This week, Valentinoshoes, Goyard bags and so much more caught our eyes.

Valentino-Rockstud-Pumps

We found quite a striking pair of Rockstuds in the Valentino shoe subforum this week. Mrs. MFH was happy to share her new fall selections with a very appreciative audience, and we are loving the combination in a big way. There are more fall styles to check out in the thread, so don’t miss it.

ValentinoRockstud-Flats

We love when our members ask and receive thoughtful opinions on their purchases; it’s what the PurseForum is all about. We found anhy22 asking about flats a bit ago, and the response was near-unanimous. Drop in here and see if you agreed with the majority.

Apart from the Valentino Shoes subforum, we also have a subforum dedicated to Christian Louboutin and, of course, the Glass Slipper for everything else. No matter your favorite footwear brand, we are sure there is a conversation going on about it.

Chanel-Bag-and-Bracelets

Last week we visited the Jewelry Box and brought you some Pandora pieces. This week, we went to one of our favorite threads in the Jewelry Box, the Layering and Stacking thread, to bring you the splendid ensemble from Natalie J., whose mother gifted her some absolutely amazing bangles. There are all sorts of combinations in this thread, from precious Edwardian treasures to chunky statement pieces.

Cartier-Rings

P.S. We do rings, too! Thanks go to bougainvillier for sharing this magnificent combination of Hermès and Cartier.

Chanel-Flap-Bag

In Chanel this week, graceandfaith asked for opinions on which of two bags was the more striking, and admittedly this black lambskin knocked our socks off, even though we never met a blue bag we didn’t like. What say you, Roundup Readers? It’s not too late to weigh in! Some of our other members have started conversations in which where your opinions are kindly requested, so don’t dawdle.

Chanel-Wallet-on-Chain-Bag

Also in Chanel this week, Kblucero added a WOC (wallet on a chain) in a stunning shade of burgundy to her collection, and calflu showed off this beauty in wonderful, delicious pearly beige.

Goyard-Tote

It’s been a while since we visited Goyard, and we were excited to find a new style we’ve not seen before on PurseForum. PinkInTheBlue shared this lovely Bellechasse, and already we can see this nicely structured bag from Goyard has lots of fans.

Goyard-Reversible-Bag

And speaking of wonderful new bags, the reversible Anjou got a lot of attention when it was announced, and our Goyard fans were anxiously awaiting its debut in a reveal on the PurseForum. Gellingh made our dreams come true, and we can certainly see the appeal of this bag, both inside and out.

You will find a few more reveals and surprises in Goyard this week, along with an interesting, continuing discussion on quality. If you are not familiar with this brand, this is a great time to explore and see what you have been missing.

Kate-Spade-Mouse-Bag

Its nice when a brand has fun, and Kate Spade sure has tons of it. Scully Piper shared thissweet wee mouse bag this week, and it’s cute as can be. Along more serious lines, Laylawnny showed off her two new Kennedy Street Brookses this week, and ReginaPhalage picked up a Newberry Lane Small Loden in a bright shade of red.

Kate-Spade-Top-Handle-Bag

Pumpkinqueen made a great choice with this terrific bag, the New Bond Street Flo in a pretty green with a sweet pop of pink. Keep your eye on Kate Spade; whether you are feeling whimsical or sleek and stylish, the brand has some great options.

Thank you for spending a little time with us today. We hope you enjoyed these highlights and that you will spend a little time exploring the PurseForum and finding your own special spots to visit again and again.

CREATURES OF THE WIND SPRING/SUMMER 2016 COLLECTION – NEW YORK FASHION WEEK

Fashion

With the New York Fashion Week on now, we are warmly greeting the Creatures of the Wind spring/summer 2016 collection rocking on the runway. It was in the not-too-distant past that the graduates of the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, Shane Gabier and Christopher Peters teamed up to express themselves by means of designing clothing pieces and it was in 2011 that they allowed wide masses to relish their creatures of the wind on the runway. Explaining the motives of the brand’s appellation being taken from the lyrics of the song ‘Wild is The Wind’, the designers are automatically presenting their own spirits, which are to vacillate and wave intensely enough as to engender those stunning creatures.

Creatures of the Wind Spring/Summer 2016 Collection

This time around the windy hearts seem to take the talented designers back to the past times to collect all of their favorite things, give them some modern touches and enthusiastically forward them to the runway. What we see as a result is an array of garment pieces ranging from ‘30s-inspired tea dresses, motorcycle jackets brought from the ‘40s, floral prints and wallpaper patchwork, as well as classic suits – from the ‘70s. The Creatures of the Wind spring 2016 collection contains everything possible to provide you with head-to-toe cool dressing – flaring pants and classic suits, mini, midi and maxi skirts and frocks with versatile designs, a range of tops, trenches, cropped jackets and vests. And what is most important is that the collection is very flexible in terms of functioning for various occasions. Evidently the designers are playing tricky to keep us with the collection all the season round.

Some of the looks showcased on the runway are standing out with their somehow gothic twist – black elongated trenches, dark mak-up and cold, unaffected eyes. We may notice in the collection a strong tendency to combine pants and maxi dresses on a single look spreading some sprezzatura around. The hues of the collection are generally cold among them being black, blue, khaki, olive green, silver grey and white. However the designers have included bright coral and yellow in the designs as well in order to enlighten the whole runway and to hint us about the upcoming spring’s trendy colors.

Another signature detail of the new lineup is fishnet tights that are peeping even beneath the pants and make the women look a little bit flirty and sensual. Floral prints are again in the full swing; we can notice embroidered roses, bluestars, bellflowers and daisies scattered here and there on the pieces. The designers have apparently got a little piece of inspiration from the night sky too, since some of the staples are romantically styled with star designs.

Judging from the Creatures of the Wind fashion line, we can come to a conclusion that the designers are considering the ideal woman to be adventurous and smart enough as to create crazy combinations throughout the upcoming spring.

Celine Box Bag Replica Review: Each To Their Own, Replicas Are Not For Everyone!

Other Brands

There’s already a review on the blog of the smooth leather Celine Box bag replica but today we’re going to see the one made of drummed leather. Surprisingly or not, the quality of the two bags is different.

Celine Box Bag Replica Review

This Celine replica review is very spot on and detailed. You’re going to find out both the good and the bad things about the packaging and the bag itself, so I think you should definitely check it out if you’re interested in buying this replica Celine bag as well.

That being said, here is the Celine Box bag replica review:

“Hi Eva,

Here’s my little review on the box bag! After weeks of researching replicas and reading your blog, I decided to go with bagaholics. Seeing that previous review on another reader’s box bag seemed so promising, even though I picked out the little curved bottom flaw. Other than that the bag did really look good for a replica. I finally made the plunge on day to buy the box bag as it was now or never (our AUD is really terrible against the USD).

At first I was anxious of paying with my credit card, etc. But my invoice came in a couple of hours later after placing my order and I paid it straight away. Came up to $544AUD (380USD), not as bad as I was expecting but still over that $500 budget that I was kinda setting for myself. I knew they used EMS and I’ve had excellent experiences with EMS before, so I was assured I was going to receive the bag quick and clean. And I did! Exactly 6 days later after paying for the bag, it was in my hands. I was extremely excited to open it up and to see it when I got home. I opened it up, the box looked good, the packaging was decent, so the box survived at least. I opened it up, the dust bag was already incorrect, but that’s just me being picky. Quite frankly who cares, I should be happy that it CAME with a dust bag haha! Then I opened up the dust bag to see more packaging, it was good to see how well they packaged it, however the strap was already connected and wasn’t rolled up or anything.

My first initial thoughts was the smell.. (don’t want to offend anyone out there at all!!) it really did smell like “China” LOL. My next thoughts was how gorgeous this bag was, so minimal, so classy, so timeless. The goatskin was AMAZING I was VERY impressed. The bag looked near perfect on the outside! However my heart sank a little bit when I opened it up and the Celine logo wasn’t done as well. I’ll be providing high quality pictures for this post! I thought maybe I can live with this. So I put the bag down and went do things for a couple of hours. I then came back and inspected the bag a little further. I was again, disappointed with the logo. Closer look, the C is a tiny bit bigger, the I is a tiny bit slanted and it was slightly chipped off as well. I guess because of the goat skin, but debatable I guess? Unfortunately after further inspection, I can see that the gold on the zipper half of it has already chipped off, and the biggest deal breaker for me was the Celine logo was NOT CENTERED! I know, I know, it’s a replica. But then I realised that maybe replicas weren’t for me. Which is fine, as Miss Eva Knox said, replicas aren’t for everyone. Each to their own. She’s right, and I’m one of them.

So I’m in the process of returning this item, on the condition that I pay the restocking fee. That’s fine by me, this was an experience, and I was more than happy to take photos and send it off to Eva to post on her blog, to maybe help future readers/customers on making decisions on buying good quality replicas. Maybe bagaholics’ smooth leather box bag is better (as the previous box bag review states) but I’m not sure if it’s specifically just my luck with my bag, or maybe it’s just goatskin that makes it difficult to do the logo. Hopefully my refund will be a smooth transaction, and I do apologise for writing such a long post/review! Best of luck for future buyers on their purchases :)

I would love to hear your input on this Eva! Thanks a lot for helping all of us out, and thank you for posting this up on your blog!

Take care,
Catherine”

As I was saying in the beginning, I think this Bagaholicsonlinebags.com review of their Celine Box bag replica made of grained leather includes pretty much everything you might want to know about this bag.

I think Catherine was right about the logo, it doesn’t even compare to the one of the smooth leather Box bag. In all fairness it doesn’t look perfect in the photo on the site either, so you can’t say they were trying to fool anyone. Just like my friend suspected, the texture of the drummed leather makes it more difficult to make a perfectly clear logo. But it could have been better anyway.

If you’re planning to buy the replica Celine Box bag as well, please take into account all the details presented in this review. If you feel like you wouldn’t be able to get over these flaws, don’t get it or choose the one in smooth leather instead. Because returning a replica bag is never an easy process when you don’t hate it. There are many good things about this Celine Box bag replica, which made the decision more difficult for my friend.

I would also like to point out that the “China smell” is not something unusual for replica bags, even when they’re made of real leather like this one is. And there’s no doubt that it’s made of real leather. But this is not a big deal, because you can easily get rid of the smell.

It’s true, replica bags are not for everyone because they’re risky to buy and you can’t ever be 100% sure about what you’re going to get. Even though you come across a reliable replica site like Bagaholics that allows you to return the bag if you just don’t like it, this still doesn’t guarantee that all their replica handbags have the same quality…some are better than the others. So you need to take this into account too when buying a replica bag. At the same time a not-so-satisfying replica bag can be just an exception, it doesn’t mean you should start doubting the quality of all their Celine replica bags because of it.

Sometimes you love a replica bag so much you can easily get past a flaw. Other times a single flaw can bother you so much you just can’t imagine yourself wearing that bag with pride. And in cases like this there really isn’t something else to do than to return it. Please remember that many replica website only allow you to return a replica bag if it has obvious flaws or if it arrived damaged! Make sure you check that before you actually buy it because otherwise you’re going to get stuck with really bad replica bags! And trust me, this Celine Box bag replica is not a bad replica bag, just look at other Celine replica bagreviews on the blog! Some of those bags are just horrible!

Look at the leather, the stitching, the logo, the clasp and all the other details of this Celine replica bag and tell me: would you have kept it?
