Hermes's "diffusion line" ....

is not going to be called "H by Hermes", but rather SHANG XIA instead. According to, this coming spring, Hermes will launch a CHINA-exclusive brand called SHANG XIA, which includes ready-to-wear and decorative arts inspired by Chinese culture and traditions of craftsmanship.

These are to be made using Chinese raw materials and artisanal know-how, Hermès said.

The aim of this new brand is to compete with the current luxury brands in China, which, to me, can bring a number of benefits:

1) The main reason Hermes doesn't do AS WELL (in relative term, because growth for Hermes has been reportedly increasing in China over the past few years quite dramatically) in China-land is because of its pricing. Most products from other luxury brands (say LV, Gucci) are generally "cheaper" (again, relatively) than Hermes products - a basic hermes H belt is about 1.5 times more expensive than monogrammed LV or Gucci belt, and given that Gucci belts do go on sale every season, it's much easier and cheaper for Asian consumers to (illusionally) become part of the 'luxury' world through purchasing Gucci stuff. Now with lower pricing, perhaps Hermes would become more "accessible" for the brand conscious consumers?

2) Hermes is no where near an 'instantly recognizable' brand as others. An LV logo can be spotted from metres away, while an hermes "h" logo can only be seen from the front of a belt. Even Chanel stamps their ugly CCs every where on almost everything, and with most consumers' favourite equation being "more money = more logos per square unit", down pricing will make the hermes logo much more "money justifiable".

3) Instead of creating a diffusion line called "H by HERMES", which will surely disturb current Hermes followers due to possible luxury image degrading, this line has a completely different name and has nothing to do with Hermes, which means the luxury image of Hermes remains, and people on the street will still know an Hermes customer pays 1000 bucks for their belt and not mistake it for another brand, which, afterall, is what most Hermes customers want anyway ( who's willing to paying 1000 bucks for something that dont get recognized or get mistaken for something cheaper, RIGHT?).

However, if you think this new idea is a Win-win situation all the way, there are still a number of potential problems that may arise:

1) Even though Hermes has always prided itself on being the 'brand of craftsmanship and quality', it has solely made most of its profits through easily recognizable items ("H" logo belts, clic clac bracelets, birkin and kelly bags, collier de chien bracelets, etc) and created "myths" about some items (ie. the whole '2 year' waiting list non sense about birkin bags - read read 'bringing home the birkins' to get this busted, and videos about the whole 'craftsmen' working diligently and passionately to make that special beautiful bag). This explains much of its pricing. Take the Birkin bag for example: nicely made bag? yes. quality leather? yes. Practicality that justifies 10 000 $? Properly not. I've tried on one myself, and to be honest, if you take away all the stories and nonsense that go behind this bag, it's just a normal tote bag with useless cover flap and straps, not to mention there arent enough compartments inside, which means all ur stuff always gets mixed up and u end up spending minutes to get to your lipstick.

Now while Hermes customers constantly mask themselves as being 'anti brand', we all know most people purchase a Kelly bag or collier de chien belt to show off their status, perhaps not to the average population, but to mix in with the 'high society' crowd. And to be crude, most (and I mean MOST, not ALL) Chinese consumers do not have the sophistication to tell or appreciate quality, so with a completely new brand and perhaps no items that are already famous, how will Hermes make profits in China-land? Have they forgotten that unlike the Japanese, the Chinese arent trending setters, but rather trend followers?

2) Speaking of lack of sophistication in recognizing quality, most Chinese consumers solely judge quality of items based on where they're made, which explains the whole "getting things made in China than having the tags sewn on in Italy" trap most luxury companies have been using to keep their profits up. With (I assume) a new brand being made in China, will your average Chinese customer be willing to pay 500 bucks for a cashmere jumper with a "Made in China" tag? Or perhaps Hermes will have things made in China then send them to France to get the 'Shang Xia' logo stamped and use it to clarify their origin as "Made in France"?

With all that being said, I'm still excited about the introduction of its new brand. I'm sure Hermes with its multi million dollar super smart staff would have thought about all the things mentioned and found a solution :). I've been an Hermes customer over the years and is completely not an 'anti-Hermes', and definitely do not want to offend any Chinese readers. :).

Phew, essay finished, it's time to eat!

Don't we all want to be a Gucci girl?

Blonde, toned, tanned, rich, fierce and super vain?

That Poly girl is a machine I'm telling you. Who the hell maintains that body, books every campaign, editorial and walks/opens all the major shows after THAT MANY YEARS in the business?!! I say put Raquel in the ICONS list, and make Miss Poly number 1 on the models list!

Thank you Frida, thank you Natasha, thank you I&V, my tacky eyes had a major visual feast!

I still had some faith in Proenza Schouler ...

until I saw this on their website:

Really?! The duo Parsons graduates who are famous for their trend setting, hip cool, innovative designs that make me drool every season came up with something like that?

While I dont have much of a problem with the purse design itself, the "Proenza Schouler" stamp is just plain horrid. And the 'made in Italy' underneath completely ruins it. What type of customers did they have in mind this time? Monogram/brand obsessed customers in Asia and Russia?

To my knowledge, which I now assume is not that correct, a Proenza SChouler woman is someone who's sophisticated, who wants understated, hip and chic fashion. She's someone who can tell whether a dress is well made without looking at the brand. Now has she turned into one of those 'brand victims' that needs to let people know where she purchased her purse, and has to see those misleading 'made in italy' tags because she can't even trust herself when it comes to spotting quality? The "out of stock" sign said it all ...

To complete their 'online shopping experience', Proenza Schouler also offered this:

It is saddening that many designers these days have to turn to innane accessories and fragrance to boost their sales. Now noone needs to save for a beautiful Proenza jacket anymore, they can just go buy Target clothes, then buy a PS key ring, and they too can (illusionally) be a part of the hip, downtown chic 'Proenza' lifestyle.

I wonder what's next? Alexander Wang made in France poker sets, Christopher Kane made in UK usb sticks, or Richard Nicoll made in Australia cosmetic case?



What was seen on Miss " I just gave birth still I look hot"

The Ultra GEORGE Melanie Huynh:


I chose the black/gold version because I have a thing for black & gold :). Now I need an occasion to wear this .... may be on my way to work at the Vogue Paris office? *wishful wishful*

Now if only I had some major legs like Melanie ...

So I'm far from what most people consider a 'party animal', but every now and then I seem to go crazy to some random 'Club Anthem', in my room, and not in a club (how ironic). The latest one was this:

Are you a criminal? ...

for committing these offenses?

10 Worst Male Fashion Offenses

1) Low V-Neck Shirts
While some men can pull off this American-Apparel look, most agree that it's generally offensive.

2) Popped Collars

Hopefully, men are slowly realizing that this is a fashion don't!

3) White Shoes

White shoes were banned from the Australian nightclub. You all want to ban them too.

4) Baggy Jeans

We don't need to see any boxers or butt cracks.

5) Skinny Jeans

So baggy jeans are out, but so are skinny jeans according to you guys. Sounds like men need to find a nice in between fit.

6) 'Manpris' (Male version of capri pants:-P)
Let's choose either shorts or pants, OK?

7) T-Shirts With Stupid Slogans

Nobody's laughing.

8) Ed Hardy

All of you seem to agree that these designs just don't work. But we might be seeing more Ed Hardy – the brand is set to launch a line of baby products.

9) Sideways or Backwards Baseball Hats
It might work with Travis Barker's look, but most of you only want to see a baseball hat worn the correct way.

10) Flip-Flops Worn Anywhere but the Beach

Flip-flops with jeans: not a good look.

We've all done silly things in the past (I once lusted after an Ed Hardy t-shirt, but gladly never got myself to purchase one, phew ...), but if you're still making one of those 10 mistakes again, I pleade you GUILTY!

when pheobe philo takes over ....

you know you can't deny! okiez that was a really lame use of the song "when love takes over", but can I please direct your attention to Celine's latest accessory collection. Remember a while back when I said Celine was going to be the new Chloe now that Pheobe Philo's taking over as creative director? Well, looks like not only did their apparel department get a revamp, the old boring accessories also got a make over! First up are the belts and shoes:

Though it's the bags that made me drool ...

Amazing no? Would those be the new paddingtons? Properly not, but then again IT bags are soooo 2006, practicality is the new THANG!

Just to remind you again why Pheobe was, and also will be the queen of minimalism:

the hottest show on earth ...

is finally here! Watch watch and feel depressed about the last piece of carbs you just ate! lol

Is it just me or does anyone else also think the VS show is really starting to lose its lustre now? May be it's becuz Adrianna Lima got knocked up and couldn't walk this year?

I still LOVE!

Special mentions to Anja Rubik and Edita :).

I *cough* love *cough* how they have to make a reality tv show out of anything these days. Doesn't matter if you're thin or fat, smart or not so intellectually inclined, as long as you agree to play the stereotypes, everyone gets a fair share of the spotlight! With viewers ratings starting to drop like house prices, it was time for Victoria's Secret to produce something to "engage" viewers and excite them pre-VS-show. And what's better than a reality (lack of) talent show to find the next VS angel?! Watch Watch:

Bravo to Victoria's Secret for their efforts to save a failing show! Totally got the weak hearted like myself hooked!

Watch the rest of the 'show' HERE!

I love how they put some random asian, brunette and african girls in as fillers. PUH-LEASE, we all know may only the blondes with double Ds win!

Cheesy fakeness I LOVE!

He put K in KOOL ...

Or KEWL, like how the children prefer to say it these days. Anyhoo, in between my obsessions for fur, leopard print and all things tacky, I do try to squeeze in some admiration for the minimalist clothes, especially those that are geometrically/architecturally fascinating. And noone does minimalist better than Karl Lagerfeld ( some may be on par like Jil Sander, Raf Simons and what not but that's another story). No i'm not talking about Chanel here, but rather Uncle Karl's own label. Watching his latest collection just made me drool:

Am I the only one the gets the impression that the razor sharp tailoring can totally make shapeless people like me have definitions ? *wishful wishful?* Oh and those dresses with metallic strips are way better than dark chocolate!

the day he passed away ...

a mid-summer day came with hails and chilling winds ...
i wanted to cry but oozing out a drop of tear seemed to be the hardest job ...
perhaps i was relieved that those eyes of his that showed no joy or sparks in the last year finally got to rest ...
i suddenly realized HE was my childhood ...
memories of him teaching me how to gamble at the age of 4, or how to fight an enemy by poking him in he eyes with your 2 fingers, fondled back, not with sadness, but rather a soothing drop of melancholy ...
he was always an easy man, never complained or asked for anything ...
everything he had, he gave all away, because he believed you should leave life the same way you came to life, with nothing ...
i still remember his smile whenever i scrubbed his back or brought food to his room, and those stares of lost hopes when i said goodbye, to leave himin that humid lonely room ...
i guess i was rather cruel, afterall i was one of the very few he could remember and identify after all the memory loss ...
sometimes i wish i was religious, then at least i could still believe he was here with me, or up there in heaven watching me ...
mum said he went away in peace, and i'm sure he did ...
in fact he was always at peace, to me he WAS peace ...
the day he passed away ...
was today ...

I love you grandpa ...

I'm going to be on a much needed break to Melbourne, so postings will be extremely limited, as I need to squeeze family, friend, food and fun times into my tightly packed 3 weeks. Please bear with me, since i'll be all refreshed and have much to tell once my mind is unclogged and purified :).

I love you all!

Every now and then you see something that's just so beautiful ...

you know you have to get it even when you don't know what to do with it ... It happened to me the other day when I walked past the BALLY store in the city. I've always loved Bally for their craftsmanship and understated accessories, without the super designer price tags (not cheap, but not crazy like say ... ahem ... Gucci canvas bags). Anyhoo, the other day I was walking past the Bally store when I saw this weird cigarrette case/pendant/necklace thingy on the mannequin I had to stop to figure out what it was:

Turned out I was right, the SA told me it WAS a clutch/necklace. The clutch is made out of gold brass with black vetvet lining, and pretty small and compact. I constantly fell in love with the victorian/boho design but did not want to make an impulse purchase so I decided to leave it.

Anyhoo, I just could not resist it anymore having to walk past it every day, I decided what the hell, I'm just gonna get it, so I went in the next and bought the damn thing. Not sure what I'm gonna do with it now though, but definitely not returning it. Practicality maybe not, pure lust? HELL YEAH!

Thank you Brian Atwood.

stylish people on bikes:

Given we're the 2nd fattest (and properly the 2nd worst dressed too) country in the world, about time we put on some ferocious heels and take our bikes out for a ride

At least a Maccas triple cheese burger meal afterwards wouldn't feel guilt-full ...

Someone please start this trend of stylish bike riding. I'm too scared of getting bricks thrown at by the bogans, ick!

I love this girl ...

Lara stone ....

especially after reading her interview on the latest UK VOGUE:

"She's been doing the model rounds for ten years, since she was 15, but says that even back when she was 16 and in Paris, drugs weren't a problem. "I'd already tried everything in Holland. Anyway, I never wanted to be that model on drugs, the sort who gives head for a line of coke."

She does, however, have a weak spot for food.

"If I could have the discipline to be super-skinny, I would be. I think of dieting, then I eat pizza. I'm a woman, and every woman wants to be skinnier — unfortunately."

But she doesn't mind going topless all the time for magazines.

"Everyone's seen them. My girlfriends love them — they play with them!"

She's concerned about her future — she doesn't want to act or design.

"I lie in bed at night and worry about what comes next. I'm not sure I have any other talents."

And thinks she has men trouble.

"Men don't like me. I haven't been on a date for six months. I've just started a club with a girlfriend called the We Hate Men But We Can't Be Gay Club."

But she likes to be mean to men.

"I figure out what they hate most, and then I do lots and lots of that."

If she doesn't wear a designer, it may be because she hates them.

"I shouldn't be wearing these shoes. Because I hate the designer and never wear people I hate."

And don't get in her way at a show — one Belgian model now knows that.

"I kept saying 'Excuse me, excuse me, excuse me,' because I had to get to the catwalk, but she just kept posing. So I pushed her. It was only a few stairs." "

And I'm normally not a fan of girls with big bossoms.

with ACNE armour jeans:

I wonder if these Sasha Fierce jeans will make their way to our shore? I'm so putting my name down the waiting list for both Melbourne and Sydney stores!

One thing though: how to wash those jeans?

Is Ghesquiere going down the suicidal path ? ...

by launching a new fragrance for Balenciaga? Saw this on the Vogue australia website:

"Balenciaga to launch new fragrance

Nicolas Ghesquière temporarily turned his nose on high fashion to sniff out the next signature scent for the Balenciaga house. Dubbed Balenciaga Paris, Ghesquière dove straight into his first fragrance project, working closely with esteemed perfumer Olivier Polge (of Viktor & Rolf’s hit Flowerbomb and soon-to-be-released Eau Mega scents) on everything from the fragrant notes right down to the bottle design.

Inspired by the smells of floor wax, petrol and carnations, this is not your everyday floral spritzer, as Ghesquière explains: “It is not a romantic floral,” the designer told “It’s definitely the mix of tradition and something quite contemporary and urban.”

That modern mix holds violet at its heart with redistilled woods cedar and patchouli adding a sophisticated edge.

Expect to see Ghesquière’s muse Charlotte Gainsborough, shot by Stephen Meisel, front the fragrance campaign when it arrives in Australia in mid 2010."

Uhm, I can already imagine something along the 'Narciso Rodriguez for her' or 'Agent provocateur' lines, which I don't mind to be honest.

Maybe now that the motorcycle bags arent that 'IN' anymore, it's time to bring out something new to bring the $$$$ in?

Just a thought ....


Wednesday, November 4, 2009

SIGH ....

was what I did when i saw Henry Holland's new 'diffusion/sister' line, and was also how you pronounce it. Called 'H!' (like H? or HUUUHHH?), this line is targeted at the 'funky, cool teenage customers' *vomits*. Watch Henry Holland's introduction about the line below:

I have to applaud Mr Holland for his every effort to stay in the fashion business. Guess when your main line is S***, novelty t-shirts are so 2006, your muse/the only thing that attracts customers Aggy Deyn told the world she hated fashion and you were advised to quit fashion by last season, what you need to do to keep the $$$ flowing in is to abuse your name and use it to lure in the teeny boppers!

I don't know about you, but I really hope this 'sister line' will never leave the UK and get to our shore. Please, Armani Exchange as a sister line's already bad enough.

I don't know why my parents are still hiding the truth ...

that they adopted me from an orphanage in Italy called TACKI-LANO, because it's quite evident now that my tackiness is getting out of control. Say whatever you want to say, but images from the latest Versace show is hanging on to my heart like a hungry leech!

Mini skirts and dresses in sheer latex, with embroided studs and over the top prints?! Most people say NAY, I say YAY! I'm glad Donatella's bringing back the old Gianni flavours. In this so called 'hard times' with most stores bringing out boring plain stuff, those dresses will sure bring in loads of $$$.

That saying, my favourite collection from Donatella would still be the uber gorge sex on heels spring summer 2008 show:

I love how all the models look like Donatella clones lol! Skip to 4:41 to watch Natasha Poly do her fierce walk! and that aqua backless dress on Stam at the end of the video is BEYOND!

Gianni Versace may not be replaced, but I say Donatella is still BANANAs!

I love!

So true! who cares about what the song sounds like when the video's this good:

The dancing's genius no? I have no idea what she's singing about, but bleh lol!

On the other side, Britney's new video for '3' totally let me down! I was expecting a bit more dancing extravagance, with a massive snake wrapping around her neck ( like those 'slave 4 u' days). Oh well, at least she's looking healthy and hot again so I'm happy for her :).

Love you all!

Seems like retail stores are doing any possible things they can to boost their $$$$. I was browsing the luisaviaroma website for some last spring 2009 bargain sales, when i realized they already had SS2010 stuff on sale! HELLO didn't fashion week just finish like 2 weeks ago?! I mean, they have not even reached the peak of winter in the northern hemisphere! Anyhoo, it's not like I'm complaining, because there were some eye candies that I could already pick out:

1. The ultra glam-chic sequin embroided Lanvin jumpsuit, retailed at ~ $ 15K (!!!) which I LOVED instantly when I saw the show (tacky me hoho :D):

2. Rick Owen's beautiful goddess draped dress, although I'm more interested in the gold cuffs, so gothic chic no?

3. Despite the ultra harsh reviews, Lindsay Lohan directed 'high fashion' *coughs* brand Ungaro still managed to produce some wearable pieces with a (comparatively) decent price tags:

Of course there were pieces that made me roll my eyes and scratch my head, like this hooker fabuleux Balmain sequin ripped dress:

The worst has got to be this:

Please correct me if I'm wrong, but did the price tag say AUD 1315 ?!! PUH LEASE, in this recession time who would pay that much a for train wrecky (American Apparel inspired) t shirt? I might as well go down the road, ask some homeless man for his tshirt, put a Balmain tag on it and still look better!

So ....

IF THIS is considered curvy ...

then what am i? My recent visit to the Victoria's Secret website (don't ask why!) made me question whether the ideal image for a brand who's famous for only choosing 'CURVY' girls has changed over the years:

Don't get me wrong I love Ms Poly to death, but for VS, really? Then I saw this photo of LIly Donaldson and I couldn't believe my retarded eyes:

Photoshop much?

CELINE IS THE NEW CHLOE! I LOVE LOVE LOVE Pheobe's newest collection for chloe ... i mean ... celine. Clean, modern, feminine yet really strong at the same time.

Uber GORGE no? The sountrack too is amazing!

Bernard Arnault has got to be the smartest man on earth when it comes to acquiring talents. I can already see that leather shift dress with silk tie collar, the sleeveless trench dress and those sharp skirts and coats flooding $$$ into the LVMH group!

Can't wait for the full show video to come out now!

Welcome back phoebe philo!

She's bringing sexy (Tom Ford) back!

I loved the latest Gucci collection. Practicality and wearability to the mass market? May be not. Authoritively bondagy sexy? HELL YEAH!

Now while I've always loved the whole boho chic themes Frida brought out the past few seasons, My jaw dropped when I saw a lot of Tom Ford in those uber provocative outfits. That saying, the collection is totally Frida Giannini still.

3 points taken from this collection: Bondage is official. Frida Giannini at this moment OWNS Gucci. Oh, and you better add 'sporty bondage' to your trend vocabulary for next season :).

Tackiness I LOVE!

I DIED ...

When I saw this H&M shirt from OOoOO:

OH EM GEE, it's (almost) EXACTLY the same as the Lanvin beaded collar shirt I've been dying to own, minus the wrist slitting price (its RRP is 29.99 pounds, which is ~AUD 60!)


Any readers from the States or Europe or ANYWHERE with H&M wanna help me buy this please?! I'll pay you back along with my autograph! lol

Thanks to Alexander McQueen. Properly the best show of the season yet (for its theatrical and artistic values, production and most importantly, the clothes!)

Those shoes made me drool! They look so comfortable no? lol!

I love!


Thursday, October 8, 2009

love me some miu miu fur ...

Properly the most innane obsession I've had yet, introducing the miu miu fur collar:

Would it keep you warm? Can you use it as a scarf? properly not ...

Can it cover your assets? Would you use it as a top? NAH AH!

I still love it nevertheless ...

This obsession has got to stop!
