My MANy Bags Lookbook #09

Luxury London

An ode to British style and the decadence of all things luxurious:-) Perfect for a luxury vacation jetsetting in celebrity style to the capital of Great Britain:-)

Crocodile skin Hermès HAC bag, luxurious shearling collared Alexander Mcqueen coat and a bowler hat, bow tie for chivalrous elegance... classic pieces for discerning men with lots of taste and money. Of course, to ensure the look is not overwrought with vulgar display of wealth, some street label to balance it off. Such pieces in the form of a cool, plum coloured Topman skinny jeans and laceless leather boots gives a touch of colour and youthful exuberance:-) All paired and matched with a gorgeous Dior Homme red mini checks shirt for some classic cool:-)

London is calling...

Never have brides had so much leeway when it comes to headwear. 2010 marks a time when choosing you put on top of your head will add pizazz to your overall look. Thanks to those designers getting creative with netting, florals and plumes, the bride has so, so many options.

Oscar de la Renta

Pancake hat wrapped in netting.
Jenny Packham

A little bit of vintage to go with the evening gown look.

Lia McNairy and Antonio Gual

Light and airy, a headband of feathers would work for a Spring as well as Winter wedding.

Carolina Hererra

One of the great introductions this year by Carolina Herrera is the straw hat (she put out several) wrapped in ivory point d'spirit netting. Stunning . . .


Getting ready for winter weddings this hat is a toasty charmer as well as chic.

Carolina Herrera

Another Carolina Herrera revival: The plume. It proffers a touch of the sophisticate as well as pure whimsy. Plumes are particularly flattering for the petite bride wanting to add some length to her look. Try a plume also if you're going with more of an evening gown look.


This headband would pair up nicely with Amsale's clean-lined gowns
