Marni Resort Eveningwear 2012-2013 Collection

Inspired by the Eastern influences, Marni Resort Eveningwear 2012-2013 Collection makes me want to hit the red carpet right now. A woman’s confidence starts from the waist as feminine silhouettes are graced with fluidity and volume. The dark hues of midnight blue, black, ivory, dashes of powder pink and gold add richness and drama to the collection. I can just imagine being wrapped in rich, luxurious crepe marocaine, faille and silk crepe. Ahh, a woman can only dream, can’t she?

Anya Hindmarch Cruise 2013: Pomp & Pleasure Collection

Take a journey back in time with the Anya Hindmarch Pomp & Pleasure collection. The Cruise 2013 collection is inspired by the “Georgian era of the 18th century oil paintings, opulent homes with ornate furnishings, fabrics such as silks, moires, damasks and tassles, guilloche enamel boxes and travel tags from trunks”. You will be delighted to see a contemporary spin on a the grand idea such as the ornate leather tassel as well as “the lady” oil painting. Here are my favourite picks from the Cruise 2013 collection. You can check out the entire collection on my Facebook Page (because they’re worth it!).

Anya Hindmarch Cruise 2013: Nevis LadyImagine carrying an 18th century oil painting on your shoulders. Well, now you can with this Nevis Lady multi-printed canvas tote. This is definitely one of my top picks.

Anya Hindmarch Cruise 2013: GeorgianaDid you know these handmade tassels take 8-hours to make? Named after the 18th century socialite, Duchess of Devonshire, Georginia zip top pouches in fuchsia coral and turquoise bluebell hues are a confectionery delight!

Alexander McQueen Cruise 2011 in Singapore

Good things come to those who wait. Alexander McQueen Cruise 2011 collection is coming to Singapore from January 2011 onwards. The selective Alexander McQueen Cruise 2011 accessories and the Ready-To-Wear collection will be available at Club 21. This is the first collection from the new Creative Director, Sarah Burton – so far, I’m absolutely loving it. Inspired by Hans Bellmer’s dolls and samurai warriors, Burton wanted to “juxtapose the pale and the delicate with the bold and armorial. It’s about a highly structured torso that gives way to a more fluid silhouette or drop waists that lead to a finned trouser or skirt.”

One day… I will own an Alexander McQueen skull clutch :D

This mint-color Union Jack skull clutch really caught my eye.

The print is romantic and definitely a show-stopper.
