Coach buys over Kate Spade for US$2.4 Billion

 

When news of Kate Spade starting to close its Saturday stores in Singapore hit, I thought that the designer label was in troubled waters. Never mind that they said it was a move to concentrate more on their Kate Spade New York brand. But I guess things are looking better for them after Coach, another designer handbag maker, said it would buy Kate Spade & Co for a whooping $2.4 billion (S$3.4 billion).

The Cutest Designer Mobile Phone Covers

I hate it when iPhones get all the cute, cool covers. I tried searching for S4 but to no avail. It’s almost like a punishment for being an iPhone defector. I might be the odd one though because I am not loving my Andriod and am so missing my Apple. Let’s just say I feel so out of sync because my other IT toys are an iPad mini and Macbook Air. The S4 simply sticks out like a sore thumb in my family of gadgets.

So I was surfing the net & happened to come across these really cute iPhone covers. I thought to myself, maybe, just maybe they would have something for Samsung users. But hey, who am I kidding? So let me just lust at these till I switch back to an iPhone.

I’m totally digging the Bear design because it’s simply way too adorable. It reminds me of Hello Kitty’s teddy bear, don’t you agree? But they do not have these in the S4 version :(

On a brighter note, perhaps these Balenciaga cases could fit an S4. I love the zip and buckle details compacted onto this tiny little space of a pouch. It looks sophisticated and subtle without screaming “I’m a designer phone case”

Pity that I just don’t have the dough to buy it. :/

My obsession with Chanel

I simply adore Coco Chanel even though her personal life was a mess. (Yes, I watched the movie with my sister cause no one could in my social circle could appreciate such stuff…)

Coco Chanel was a style-setter and never a follower. She had the guts to go ahead and do whatever she wanted. Coco had style and style stays with you forever while fashion trends come and go. Blessed with nimble fingers and creating many iconic designs.  Everything in her collection just simply oozes class and elegance.

Even till now, Chanel’s true essence are reflected in the designs by her successors. Her fashion designs are kept minimalistic with the usual blacks and whites. And this is why I love Chanel so much. Every piece or design is always so classy and timeless.

I love everything Chanel but the price is not very kind to my wallet. So it’s a rare indulgence I only get to satisfy once in a blue moon. I was overjoyed when I got my first Chanel. It was a Chanel Kelly, a design that is since discontinued.

This gorgeous bag is decked out in durable Chanel caviar leather and features the signature logo clasp in the center. I got it for a steal from a reputable Japanese reseller for Chanel vintage goods. And this bag has gotten me several compliments whenever I go because it’s not a common sight.

My next Chanel conquest was a Chanel GST from Europe thanks to my BFF. This gorgeous classy bag is big enough for office or weekend outings. And I had been eying it for ages so now that I have it. I’ve pretty much satisfied my Chanel lemmings for the moment.

I guess you can notice the trend now, I’m into them black, caviar leather with the classy gold fittings. To me, these designs are classic and will never go out of style. I would love to keep these bags for a long time too so the caviar leather helps maintain the durability of the bags.

So if you have excess cash, you may consider investing on a Chanel piece. They are really worth the money.
