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! :)
