Nicopanda case by Cubic Bling

Just received my personalized crystal case by Lydia of Cubic Bling (@cubicbling on Instagram). I wanted something fun but still fashion-y and my sister came up with this Nicopanda idea. A tribute to the amazing, genius, one of a kind, Nicola Formichetti and his recent departure from Mugler. And in case you missed it, last year I had a chance to be at an Audi Fashion Festival party hosted by Nicola himself.

Louis Vuitton: New, Now, NOÉ

 photo Louis-Vuitton-Petit-Noe-BB-2_zpsf359337f.png

In strictly chronological terms, it is the second oldest Louis Vuitton iconic daily bag, its birth date of 1932 placing it at the start of an exceptional decade that saw the creation of the Speedy, the Alma and the Keepall.

In spirit, however, Noé is as young as any bag around, still tinged with the carefree air of those newly liberated women who wore short skirts, shorter hair and carried it – just so – swinging from their shoulder.

The original Noé was crafted from natural leather, pale gold, and light as its exuberant ribbons of bubbles. Since then, Noé has appeared in many guises – most famously, of course, Louis Vuitton’s emblematic Monogram canvas, which by the 1960s could at last be made supple enough to do justice to the bag’s generous forms.

Today, Noé and its cousin Petit Noé can be found in a myriad incarnations, from Damier Azur to colourful Epi leather – each time different, yet still, somehow, the same.

But now there is a new Noé: Noé BB. Irresistibly cute, unmistakeably contemporary, a diminutive replica of the original which comes with its own innovation: an extra-long shoulder strap that enables it to be slung casually across the body. In Monogram or Damier Azur canvas and candy-bright Epi, Noé BB is just waiting to be discovered by a new generation.

In Singapore, Noe BB is launched in classic Monogram Canvas (S$1320), Damier Azur (S$1320) and Epi leather (S$1820) in a series of 5 vibrant mono-colours; Figue, Fuschia, Citron, Piment, Cyan.

Will it, one day, like its larger namesake, be handed down from mother to daughter, its distinctive drawstring symbolic of an enduring bond of elegance?

 photo Zardoze-Next-Model-Contest-2_zps3ad833fb.png

Singapore-based fashion brand, Zardoze, is launching their first-ever social media competition to search for three women to represent their brand in their upcoming advertorials.

The brand is all about dressing the confident modern woman and who better to represent the Singaporean-based brand than a home-grown face! They are looking for three women to star in the brand’s professional advertorial which will be circulated in top local fashion publications Herworld, Female and NUYOU. The three individuals will also walk away with a free outfit of their choice from the brand.

There is no age or height requirements, all you need to do is “like” the Zardoze Facebook page and click on the Photo Comp tab at the top. Fill in the required details and attach a full-length photo of yourself. Finally, share this photo on your wall to encourage your friends to vote.

The top 10 finalists will be chosen based on the number of votes cast for your photo, and they will be given tickets to Zardoze’s fashion show at the upcoming Audi Fashion Festival in May, as well as to the Audi Fashion Festival’s official after-party where rising hip-hop star Azealia Banks will be performing.

Submissions for the Zardoze model search ends on May 1, so you have about three weeks to get yourself in shape before you take that photo.

Zardoze is available at Robinsons Centrepoint and Robinsons The Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands. For more information, visit www.zardoze.com
