Isabel Marant pour H&M alert

 photo hm-isabel-marant-2_zps061bced9.jpg

It's devastating to me that I wasn't in town to come and touch and feel Isabel Marant pour H&M at the Singapore preview yesterday, but I have done my homework with all the lookbook browsing and budget planning. Most of the pieces according to Laila of Rock The Trend, are heavy knitwear which is not very wearable, except maybe the plain tees and boho pattern dresses. But my eyes are definitely on this "solid" jacket with perfect embellishments that according to her, probably weighs 5 kgs. The only thing I don't like is the price tag (S$549).

Anyway, in case you missed the news, H&M taps some of the industry’s top names to star in the campaign images for this particular collaboration. Models Daria Werbowy, Devon Aoki, Malgosia Bela, Milla Jovovich, Sam Rollinson and Saskia de Brauw all star in a stylish series of studio images photographed by Karim Sadli below.

Lady Dior: The Making Of

Five years have passed since her first ad campaign for the Lady Dior handbag range but Marion Cottilard still exudes the same glamour in her latest campaign by photographer Tim Walker, who captured the actress showcasing two new bags from the Lady Dior range in graduated colors.

Here's a behind the scene video of the ad campaign shoot with Marion Cotillard for Lady Dior Resort 2014, her sixth campaign for the handbag line.

Taking more than eight hours to manufacture, the Lady Dior handbag consists of 100 different components, with its distinctive pattern said to be inspired by Napoleon II couture chairs used during the very first Christian Dior show in 1947.

Michael Kors Watch Hunger Stop

 photo WHS_101_Homepage_zps1bf83a1a.jpg

Michael Kors is dedicating the entire month of October to the fight against hunger. On World Food Day, October 16, Michael Kors teams will take to the streets outside six stores in five major cities to give away Watch Hunger Stop T-shirts. In each of the cities—New York, Berlin, Rio de Janeiro, Tokyo and Hong Kong—T-shirt recipients will be able to go into the participating store, enter a photo both (actually, a Phhhoto Station) and have their picture taken. The Phhhoto images will be streamed live all day and evening on billboards in New York City’s Times Square and on Kors’ dedicated microsite, WatchHungerStop.com. The image (an animated GIF) will also be sent to participants via text and can be shared over social media platforms such as Instagram, Facebook and Twitter using #WatchHungerStop.

The 100 Series watch is the brand’s first uniquely designed product to support a global philanthropic initiative. Available exclusively in Michael Kors stores worldwide and online at MichaelKors.com, it retails for $295. While overwhelming demand led to limited availability when the watch—offered in two styles—was first introduced, it is now back in stock around the world. One watch features a gold-tone stainless steel case and bracelet with a turquoise dial. The other shares the same design details but is cast in a silver-tone stainless steel case and bracelet with a navy blue dial. Both watches have a detailed map of the world etched on the colorful dial, along with the words “100 Series.”

The 100 Series watch was unveiled by Michael Kors, together with Academy Award-winning actress Halle Berry, this past April. Berry and Kors are also planning a visit to the field with WFP in the next year to experience firsthand the work done by the organization and to highlight the ongoing need to end hunger that exists in countries around the globe. Renowned for her talent, Berry has also been honored for her activism and philanthropy over the years. “I’m proud to join Michael Kors in this global effort to end hunger,” says Berry. “Statistics show that women play a crucial role in defeating hunger. WFP is especially focused on providing assistance to women because, as mothers, teachers, and entrepreneurs, they will improve the future for their families and communities. It’s an effort I’m eager to be a part of because I’m certain we can make a real and substantial difference in the lives of people in need.”

Today, October 16, 2013 is World Food Day. In the fight against global hunger and to support fundraising efforts, Michael Kors has partnered the United Nations World Food Programme on a global campaign, #watchhungerstop in support of its school meals programme.

Customers in Michael Kors retail stores around the world will be able to add a $5, $10 or $25 donation to WFP to their purchases for the month of October. Stores will also prominently feature the 100 Series watch, specially designed by Michael Kors to support WFP. For each watch sold, 100 children in a hunger-stricken area receive a nutritious meal.

To date, Michael Kors has helped WFP deliver more than one and a half million meals to hungry children through the sale of the 100 Series watch. To order the watch, visit http://www.michaelkors.com/watchhungerstop.

Crop tops are here to stay

 photo rs_1024x759-130910092814-1024croptopscm91013_zpsdc093a7b.jpg

Making its debut around a decade ago, seen on Destiny’s Child to Gwen Stefani to the Spice Girls and Britney Spears, they are making a huge come back in Spring 2013. However, judging from how not a single designer didn't show at least one crop-top this season, if not a whole collection that revolved around them, they are definitely here to stay. Still a hot trend for next season, here are my favorite pairings of the crop tops in almost every stylish combination possible.

Garuda Goes To School: ITS Campus

 photo its4_zps1b736c1a.jpg

The three days roadshow has come to an end! Here are some photos of my part at Garuda Indonesia Goes To School. I had a chance to share and perhaps teach university students about the social media, the importance and significance of blogging and how I can establish a clothing line business after blogging for 3 years.

Thanks for all of the great support for the event, it was overwhelming to be able to speak in front of more than a hundred attendees. I also want to thank every single one of you who showed up and listened to what I share and actually pay attention and asked questions.

If you happen to be there, at one of the roadshows, and didn't get a chance to ask me questions personally, you can still email me and I will try my best to respond to you.

More photos from the first and second day will follow! Stay tuned.

Here's a shot of me posting photos and tweeting and getting busy on my phone, as always. I was wearing a sheer shirt from my clothing line, Poise24. You can click here to buy online.

Sporty luxe

Here's my version of sporty luxe, wearing items from my clothing line, Poise24. I had so much fun at the shoot because I can just wear all kinds of metal jewelry, where else can I wear a skeleton hand bracelet?

I first saw the bracelet designed by Delfina Delettrez which retails at around USD23,000, click here. But you can always find a steal from chicnova, like this, which is only USD30.
