The word itself, “Halloween” actually has its origins in the Catholic Church. It comes from a contracted corruption of All Hallows Eve. November 1, “All Hollows Day” (or “All Saints Day”), is a Catholic day of observance in honor of saints. But, in the 5th century BC, in Celtic Ireland, summer officially ended on October 31. The holiday was called Samhain (sow-en), the Celtic New year.

When you walk into any department stores or designer boutiques, here are oceans of luxury goods that flooded the stores with flashy, flamboyant, in your face “I am a Rich Bitch” kinda clothing, handbags & accessories ….

In the oceans of handbag that’s available in the store, it’s hard to find a handbag that’s appropriate for a “Lady” & can be carry to any occasions. Some are just over the top biker girl looks with spikes & chains, or just way too sexy and glittery and makes you look like an expensive hooker haha! So when I saw this Dolce & Gabbana Cervo deer skin & Python Doctor Satchel Bag, it screams “ That’s the kind of handbag every Lady should have” !

The Rebirth Of The New Alexander McQueen Spring Summer 2011 Collection

Posted in Alexander McQueen, fashion with tags , on October 28, 2010 by Alan + Mei-Mei the pug

All I can say is Bravo, Sarah Burton! After the tragic death of the super talented (and my favorite designer) Alexander McQueen, everyone is wondering what is going to happen to this legendary fashion power house, who shocked and awed us season after season of McQueen’s sometimes dark & gothic glamorous creations. Sarah Burton has worked beside McQueen for over 15 years and in her first major fashion after taken over the house of McQueen, she has successfully pay a homage to the signature McQueen looks & tradition and a sense of herself.

As we all remembered that McQueen is famous for his beautiful sharp, structured cuts in his garments, from shoulders, to the hemlines, it is glamorous with a masculine undertone, but with Sarah Burton’s debut collection, I feel that maybe because of her gender as a woman, it has played a big role on this new collection. Start from the very beginning of the show, you can see the usually sharp and arch upwards shoulder line on the signature McQueen tailored jackets, the shoulder line has been slashed open, so it drapes down a little also the ruffled details on the lapel and hem are cut in raw edges, it totally soften the McQueen signature structured look and adds a bit more femininity touch to it.

Also as most of Alexander McQueen’s inspirations are often dark, almost a little uncomfortable feeling to it, but she adds her own twist, maybe I say a more “positive” energy in her inspiration …. A pagan, earth-mother spirit, flower child feel to this new collection which you can see from various of floral or leaf pattern laser cut out leather pants & dresses, white cotton canvas tailor jackets & pants with raw edges, raffia-trimmed brocade, butterflies motifs, feathers to the basket weaves hair detail….. all gives a feeling a loving mother-earth, rebirth kind of positive feeling to it. I just LOVE this new collection!

Prada Spring Summer 2011 Minimal Baroque Collection

Posted in fashion, Prada with tags , , on October 28, 2010 by Alan + Mei-Mei the pug

We’ve all loved Prada’s clean, minimal, muted color palette designs … but this season, ready for a totally different look! This season’s theme was “Minimal Baroque”. Combining the shape & cuts of the hospital scrubs to 17th century baroque paintings & sculptures (gold swirly motifs plus cherubs the whole nine yard… ) and if you think that’s “Busy enough”? they’ve also added in a splash of the exotic tropical feel Carmen Miranda & Josephine Baker by those chunky embroideries of dancing monkies, bananas in a cartoonish / abstract kinda way.
