Christian Louboutin Africaba Tote

Other Brands


After your eyes have figured out where the tote bag starts and where it ends, this is what you need to know about Christian Louboutin’s latest offering, the Africaba Tote. Working closely with charity La Maison Rose whose mission is to provide aid to the most vulnerable of women and children of Senegal, they have come up with a tote that a) is unique statement of bold West African style and b) will also do good with 10% of its sale proceeds donated to aforementioned charity.

Suitable for both men and women, this fabric tote is also huge, spanning some 68 cm across at its widest by 34 cm in height. Decorated with a Christian Louboutin crest on the front along with a couple of beads hanging from its leather handles, this workhorse of a bag also comes with its own removable shoulder sling, handy if you need to be hands-free.

Chloe Spring Summer 2016 Ad Campaign

The brand new Chloe Spring/Summer 2016 designer campaign is here! These photos really transport you to a happier place in your memory, reminding you of a holiday you don’t want to forget with endless sunsets and evening glows. These campaign photos were shot by American photographer Theo Wenner in none other than Buenos Aires, the capital of Argentina. Showcasing the SS16 collection of lace, and athletic, romantic separates, the new faces of Chloe – models Céline Bouly and Ari Westphal – feature with long time Chloe models, Antonina Petkovic and Ilvie Wittek to bring you one amazing campaign.

“There was a colour and quality to the light on location, like there is dust in the air, and it made everything more vivid. These colours and textures seemed to perfectly embody the spirit of Chloé and this collection” says Theo Wenner of the shoot.

“Collaborating with Clare Waight Keller (Chloé’s creative director) — who is brilliant and controlled and has a quiet command of every detail — in the midst of the chaos of a city, created an amazing dynamic of precision and spontaneity”

You can check out the new Chloe SS16 campaign in the gallery just below and we would love to know your thoughts on it here at Fashion Runway Blog! I’ve been a fan of the amazing Chloe Drew Bag and the ever gorgeous Chloe Susanna Boots for a long time, so I just know that the Chloe SS16 collection (both clothing and accessories) is one that we all need to get our hands on. I’m sure you agree don’t you?

PurseForum Roundup – April 1

Other Brands

Happy First Day of April! This week on our tour through the PurseForum, we visited the Wardrobe for finds and bargains (and found plenty). We also dropped into the Jewelry Box, Célineand Chloé, so come on along and join us. This is an April Fools Day safe zone.


We hope you know that PurseForum is much more than reveals of new bags. While that is a huge part of what we love, we also have scads of other topics and conversations going on around the clock. Our General Shopping subforum is something of a catch-all for everything-beyond-bags shopping, and we just know you will benefit from a visit to this treasure trove of bargain hunting.

In Nordstrom Rack Finds, pecknnibble posted these Christian Louboutins she found for a fraction of the original price. And while not in mint condition, these shoes are perfect for the right occasion (provided the right occasion is a wedding, of course). This thread has new finds every day and will surely inspire you to get out there and “find” your own.


General Shopping is also the home of our Secondhand Bargains thread. This thread’s regulars are always at the top of their game when it comes to hunting out the best thrift store and resale finds. They share their best bargains regularly, so prepare to be amazed at scores like this Valentino dress LuxeDeb found for $20. That is just one of many wonderful deals we found, and our hats are off to the dedicated shoppers here.


Purses and shoes usually take center stage on the PurseForum, but we also have an absolutely wonderful collection of Jewelry destinations for every taste and budget. Cartier, Tiffany and venerable Van Cleef and Arpels each have their own special spots for fans to discuss purchases, get help with choices and share their collections. The Jewelry Box houses everything else, and we do mean everything!


This week in Cartier, myfirstchanel got her first Cartier. She shared her new ring in this threadand treated us to a reveal of the entire pretty package! BethC also posted her incredible collectionin Van Cleef and Arpels, and fans of the brand swooned en masse.


Of course many members got new bags this week, and we thought you would enjoy a quick peek at a few of them. Chloe-babe found a new Chloé Faye in a very nice dove grey called Motty Grey. We have a whole thread in Chloé all about this cute bag, so if it is on your wish list, stop in here to get the intel you need.


The Marcie makes an appearance quite often on the PurseForum, and Louliu71 selected classic black for her first Chloé. This is a mini Marcie crossbody, and you will want to check out Louliu’s thread to see the lovely stitching details on this popular design.

Celine Nano

VintageShoes80 picked up a jaw-dropping Céline tri-color Nano; we just love this color combination. We also have an interesting conversation in Céline that may be applicable to your favorite brand: “Who are these ‘they’ people…” delves into the issue of who decides which styles are out, and which are still “in,” and, of course, whether we should be listening to them at all.


Despite producing amazing bags, Tod’s is a pretty quiet subforum, but this week we found a brand new Flower Bag in the thread dedicated to this line. Our (charmingly named) member2FlyingYorkies picked up this bauble-covered bag in a great color, and even from here you can see that this leather is just magnificent. If you love leather, check out jellyv’s bag from earlier this year; her thread also includes a nice review of her new bag.


Thank you for joining us. We hope April brings you plenty of joy and opportunities to get out and enjoy the sunshine. We will be right here next week with another Roundup to share, and hope to see you then! In the meantime, have some cake!

Fendi Keeps the New Haute Joaillerie Watches in the Family

Other Brands

Name three things that come down best in the family? Cuisine, temper, and fashion style… Italian luxury brand Fendi agrees with us; announcing the brand’s new collaboration on capsule watches with the daughter of co-creative director Silvia Venturini Fendi – dazzling jeweler Delfina Delettrez Fendi. Doubling the Fendi impact? The result should be something unique!

Delfina Delettrez for Fendi Policromia Watches

Well, the result is actually a haute joaillerie collection named Policromia, which means the art of combining different colors in an artistic way. This already gives us a pretty clear idea what the Delfina Delettrez for Fendi watch collection is all about – colors. But wait, there’s more to the designs than just colors. According to the designer herself, the inspiration for the watches lies in the geometric shapes and the layout of the Palazzo Della Civilità Italiana. For starters, that’s where the Fendi headquarters are located. There you go, a true Fendi collection from the family and the heart of the brand… do you really want to miss out on this?

Silvia went on telling WWD more about her inspiration, “To me, the Fendi palazzo itself is like a huge watch,” said she. “It’s a game of light and shadow and it’s home to incredible marbles.”

The inspiration was translated into the watches perfectly, featuring blocks of colors, shapes, and contrast. It all starts with the white diamonds nestled by the malachite and delicate blue mother-of-pearl. All watches contain an internal Swiss watch mechanism.

How about adding more luxury to the piece, like alligator straps fastened with 18-karat-gold buckles? With this design on your wrist, you should keep your hands to yourself… at all times. The watch is in a round shape and is suited for picky customers that don’t miss a chance to reiterate their love for detail. Get excited, there is a lot of detail on these small creations.

Fendi’s CEO Pietro Beccari decided to add some more hot water on the interested parties that were craving to get their hands on the watches. He stated, “Fendi is quite well-known for offering customers the possibility of really getting wild with the fantasy to build the bag of your dreams, the fur of your dreams, and wanted to offer this also to our watches in order to make them more and more an integral part of our positioning.”

Policromia was unveiled by Silvia Venturini Fendi herself this weekend. The event took place at Baselword and announced the price range for the collection. Are you ready? Take a deep breath and a comfortable seat… the designs will have a retail price starting from €3,000 to €150,000, depending on the extravagance of your taste. Why? Because it’s not only Fendi, it’s double the Fendi.

In fact, this is the first time the jeweler collaborates with this fashion house. Her past experience includes numerous collections that have been presented on the best catwalks, but this collection proves to be amazingly unique and special.
