Masterpiece surpass Masterpiece Co. Surpass No. 12160 Bag

Osaka based Masterpiece Co. caught my eye recently on a visit to Odin in NYC. The rugged appeal mixed with the versatility and functioanality of the bag designs make them items we’d gladly steal from the boys. The Surpass bag (above) in camo completely won me over.  See their complete collection here and more angles of the Surpass on the flip.

H&M x Margiela: The Two Items That Sold Out The Fastest

19 November 2012, 18.40 | Posted in Designer Collaboration, Sneakers, bags | No comments »

H&MxMargielaRedSneakers

Not saying this is a scientific study but at least at the H&M store located in the Columbus Circle mall in Manhattan, the staff uniformly agreed that the red high-top sneakers and the red “Candy Wrapper” clutch (a “re-edition” from the Spring 2010 collection–see the original here) basically blew out and were gone not long after the store opened.

Me personally I hate high-low designer collaborations and feel like they’re good for the low brand but are a long-term terrible for the high brand (I’m waiting for Alber Elbez to one day admit this). All that blah-blah-blah aside, as it happens I was in Manhattan on the day of the launch and decided to check it out. Giant failed snob that I am, I proceeded to buy three items and would have bought more but was just coming off off a budget killing CL sample sale and simply could not.

My sense at the time–and WWD has since confirmed this–was that this collection wasn’t as big  a hit as past collabos. For as much as Kanye and A$AP have made Margiela a household name for the fashion conscious youthful masses, a lot of the cuts were simply too big, boxy or artsy, making them conceptually tough for many to visualize fitting in with their wardrobes.

On a related side note….how hot is the color red lately??

Valentino Rockstud Bag & Sandals Spring 2013

ValentinoRockstudResort 524x540 Valentino Rockstud Bag & Sandals Spring 2013

If I were to put together my own “favorite things” for 2012, something from the Valentino Rockstud collection would have to be on the list (as evidenced here). As such, I was delighted to see while leafing through my Bergdorf Goodman Resort Collections magazine that Valentino is continuing the collection for Resort 2013. Often designers believe that have to jump to the next new thing so it’s a relief  to see a designer find new interpretations of a genius idea rather than abandon it in the name of staying relevant.

Chanel Miniature Hula Hoop 1 Mini Version of Chanel Hula Hoop Bag For Retail

While most of us were doubting that the huge Hula Hoop bag, that was shown on the Chanel runway this year, will ever be put in production, Mister Karl Lagerfeld certainly was already about to cook up a plan how to make the bag capable for commerce. I never underestimated Karl’s sense of humor behind the creation , which by the way captured more media attention than any other item from this years fashion week, but when I saw this miniature version of the Hula Hoop bag I was indeed somehow surprised. The 24 centimeter mini version will be available for purchase in all Chanel shops starting Spring 2013.
