The Eye-Trunk iPhone Case by Louis Vuitton

By on March 15, 2017

Soooo, Louis Vuitton has finally released its highly anticipated Eye-Trunk iPhone phone case. Since we’re talking about Louis Vuitton here, it’s obvious that the prices are not going to be low… although to be honest, I didn’t expect it to be this high!

There are four options for the case:  Canvas Monogram, Reverse Monogram, Eclipse Monogram and of course, the cherry on top Crocodile! They are available for both the iPhone 7 and 7+ with a small price increase for the latter.

Speaking of prices, they start from $1,180 USD for the canvas ones and $5,500 USD for the exotic leather. Now, I don’t have the kind of disposable income to allow for $5000 phone case and hell, not even for the $1000 one. I love buying luxury goods that I can use for a long time, and frankly a phone case isn’t that.

From NOT to HOT. How did Gucci become so popular (again) ?

By on March 12, 2017

I wasn’t really into fashion or handbags or anything luxury when Gucci was a big brand. So when I started obsessing over purses, about 6 years ago, Gucci was the last place I would look. I would pass by their boutique and my heart wouldn’t flutter and I don’t remember ever going inside. Quite frankly, I thought the brand was old, tacky and on its last breath.

So what in the world happened? I know that wasn’t just my opinion, as I’ve VERY rarely seen any blogger or respectable fashionista wear any of their pieces. But all of the sudden, everybody and their mother loves Gucci. I love Gucci, 99% of the fashion bloggers love Gucci, heck even Beyonce loves Gucci (proof: her many outfits by the Italian house and the Formation video where she sports a Gucci body).

 

Here’s my opinion on how they manage to rise and become a fashion sensation:

1.The new creative director Alessandro Michele.

The fashion house has exploded under his wing, and many of us now associate Gucci with his bold, quirky and colourful style. There is no doubt in my mind that he (and his team) is the main reason why Gucci is so successful at the moment. Here’s a Vogue article about him if you want to learn more.
