Jump + Frolic from Paper

17 Apr 2014

Funky 2D cartoon-like designer bags by JumpFromPaper created by Taipei based design duo Chay Su and Rika Lin ( even the cute duck wants in on the cartoon action! ) 

I've always wanted to be a cartoon comic book like character, and I came that one bit closer thanks to the Giggle Bag sent courtesy of Jump From Paper. Although I didn't need much encouragement to embrace my inner child and goofiness, life is too short to be always serious! I had a hoopla of fun shooting some photo's with the giggle bag, which is an apt name for this funky handbag!
Born from their childhood love of cartoons and comics, this designer duo created Jump From Paper with the aim making everyone’s childhoods dream come true – and confusing people. We love to confuse people, but more so, we love to see them burst out into laughter once they realize these are real bags,” say the designers. So what exactly are these bags? They’re amazingly graphic creations that look like they’ve been photoshopped into real life, straight from the pages of a comic book or cartoon. It’s true, they really look like they’ve jumped from paper.
I've recently took the plunge to join Instagram so feel free to follow! Some more NEWS I have been spending some of my free time creating a new blog redesign and I will be moving away from Blogger to a new platform to expand this blog, eeeek! I will miss Blogger it has been good to me, the blog address will stay the same, so hopefully I should have my new blogging home ready sometime in early May! See you there soon! :) Enjoy your Easter break!

Hypotheticalim Dilemma

11 Apr 2014

I have a fetish for white hues, particularly since we have hit the spring summer season. This Optic White Mini Phillip Lim Pashli Satchel would hit the bulls-eye! I do my utmost best to limit big designer handbag purchases, I do prefer to scout for new under the radar smaller branded bags, but like many I'm also compelled and seduced by prominent designers, like the above. 

Phillip Lim has also chosen a floral print on a black background design, for those who prefer this over the classic hues and textures, the black background it's just neutral enough that you can get away with wearing it with everything. I'm also still crushing over this Phillip Lim transformable vest. Post in collaboration with Avenue 32.

The hypothetical dilemma, acquire the beautiful bag ? or save it for a holiday?

Seoul Fashion Week FW 2014/15

28 Mar 2014

I find Seoul to be one of the most enticing cities in the world for it's art and culture and there’s a fresh wave coming in from Korea. I do wish Korean Fashion would amplify its online markets or direct purchasing, to make it more accessible.

Milan Fashion Week FW 2014

7 Mar 2014

Too much is usually never enough in Milan, the heart of the maximalist. Milan Fashion Week held strong to it's tailoring and luxury and had a whole lot more to offer this season, making strides in supporting and platforming young designer talent.

Swinging 60's mod Gucci with pastel hues and was more minimal than I would have expected, its the first time I've ever looked at a Gucci collection with a desire to wear most of it.
Frankie Morello
The Virgin Suicides reinterpreted by Frankie Morello, rebellious fun youthful pastel blue and pink illustrative prints and layering was everywhere, this speaks to my playful side.

I was inspired by the pictures taken from the satellite to the Earth : I had never paid attention to the details and I had never analyzed from so close, says Manuel Facchini
Woodstock was the primary character of the prints, Snoopy's bird friend. I like the skirts.
Fausto Puglisi

The Fendi bag bug has taken over where our teenage keychains left off.
Just Cavalli
Signature panther.
Emporio Armani

Power suiting and androgynous, inspired by Luc Besson’s Nikita. I'm a hat person, so I dig the over size bowler hats, even though they will swallow my head up.


Difficult to ignore this collection, draws a comparison between fast food and fast fashion. 

Some tasty outerwear
Au Jour Le Jour

Milan’s efforts to spotlight emerging talent.
One of my fave collections, the leather buckle fasteners + metallic and neoprene sweaters, very wearable.

Gabriele Colangelo
Inspired by the watercolors of the German artist Joachim Bandau, white and black background to explore the universe of gray.


Oodles of crystal embellishments and accessories

Anything you see to add to your wardrobe lust list ? I'm certainly not adding a drone to mine!
