Salvatore Ferragamo Sales

Came across this advertisement on the paper 2 weeks ago on the Saturday paper? I know I am a little late but better than never :)

30% off selected items at all 5 Ferragamo stores (ION, Takashimaya, Isetan, Paragon, DFS) in Singapore. A good selection of shoes to choose from, including the classic designs. If you are looking for classic design in patent leather, Isetan has some nice ones (as of last week). Paragon has a better selection with more designs to choose from. On the contrary, ION has less, even on the first few days of the start of sales.

Here's what I've gotten :)

Fashion Asia Part II

In the subsequent episodes, Keith Png brought us to Taipei. A renowned fashion designer, Huang Shu Chi @ Kiki, was featured in this episode. Amongst her designs shown, this piece of chiffon toga in light marine caught my attention. Toga fashion is inspired by the ancient Rome where a piece of long, garment was wrapped around the body and only worn by men in the past. Look, how modern fashion designers have brilliantly transformed these togas into some of the runway collections we see today.

Left: Huang Shu Chi Toga Dress from S/S 2009
Right: Greco-Roman Toga

I am clueless as to the pricing but if this piece of toga were to go on sale, I believe it will be a good investment as it does seem appropriate to be worn as a maternity dress too!
Another piece as modelled during the show was this piece of evening dress which appears rather common at the first glance from the front view but absolutely sexy from the side and back! So if you have a tiny waist to show off, this is definitely a piece to consider!

You can find more of Huang Shu Chi's collection at

Paris-Moscou Craze

Has the Paris-Moscow fever subsided? It's not over yet for some. This week alone, I still received enquiries on the Paris-Moscow collection including the Matrioshka doll range. I have no Matrioshka dolls from Chanel. I do have the real ones though, which was brought home during my visit to Moscow some time ago.

The set of Russian Matrioska stacking doll which I brought home from Moscow some time back...

Yes, that's a piece of pre-fall 2.55 tote in Burgundy sitting as the background of the Matrioshka Dolls. This is probably the last piece from the Paris-Moscow collection which I will put up for sale. Undoubtedly, I have contemplated for the longest time if I should part with this piece of tote. Burgundy is my most favourite colour for the pre-fall release followed by gold!

I almost wanted to display it in the cabinet together with the Matrioshka dolls! Luxpurse is pricing the tote at less than S$ 4 K, brand new of course!! I have not checked out the price at local boutique but was told it's more than S$5K or so? Readers who are interested to bring home this piece of Burgundy tote, feel free to drop me an email at

PS: I am giving out this set of Matrioshka dolls for the new owner of this tote! :)

Finally, I am able to catch the expression of this little Matrioshka after multiple attempts. Don't you think she looks just so innocent?

"Oh So Coco....." Part II

Some readers have emailed me to enquire about the availability of the Chanel-inspired tweed jacket at local stores. As I was out for some window-shopping over the long weekend, I chanced upon this piece of tweed jacket priced at S$129 which I thought some of you may be interested. Tweed jacket is also one of the "must-have" piece for Autumn/Winter 2009! We will be seeing more tweed in months to come; the runway, fashion magazines, designer boutiques, online stores. So add a "tweed" or two to your closet right at the beginning of this season!

I wasn't at all prepared for a Chanel-inspired look but just so happened I carried a Chanel Jumbo on that day.

Placing my modelling photo side by side with Coco Chanel, the greatest designer of all time, is by no means to compare how alike our smiles are but to compare the inspired design of the tweed jacket from French-label, Promod with the classic tweed jacket worn by Coco herself.

You can find Promod Boutiques at the following location:

1. Singapore ION @ Orchard Road
2. Singapore Paragon @ Orchard Road
3. Tampines One @ Tampines Central
4. Suntec City

Feel free to share your Chanel-inspired look with me so that I can share with the rest of the readers here! :)

Keen to get the Chanel-inspired look? Pretty interesting for this season. Thanks to the release of the French movie once again and I believe these looks are going to be in trend for a while. Oh wait, isn't Chanel timeless?

For more details, check out where you can make an online purchase of those items and create that Coco's look at quite an affordable price.
