Lindsey Wixson gets her closeup on the May 2017 cover of Harper’s Bazaar UK. The American model shows off her bee-stung pout in a high-neck lace and silk dress from Valentino. Inside the magazine, Lindsey poses in ultra-dreamy dresses and gowns from the spring collections photographed by Erik Madigan Heck.
Stylist Leith Clark selects the ethereal designs of Erdem, Miu Miu, Dior, Alexander McQueen and more for the feature. Surrounded by floral wallpaper and colorful blooms, Lindsey stuns in each shot.

Fans of Louis Vuitton and Fragment, rejoice! Following last year’s exclusive pop-up in Japan that sold out the day it was launched, the French luxury house and the cooler than cool Japanese streetwear label Fragment have come together again to release an equally (if not, more) exciting line-up that’s part of the Fall-Winter 2017 Pre-Collection for men.

Slated for a general worldwide release sometime in May 2017, the collection is a great contrast to the other much-anticipated release of the year: the Louis Vuitton x Supreme collaboration. Besides focussing on a much darker palette that primarily revolves around Monogram Eclipse, all bags and SLGs are given that added Fragment twist, a white/black/white web stamped with Fragment’s dual lighting bolts for approval. And the collection’s pretty extensive; think backpacks, duffles, totes, zip pouches… the list just goes on and on with special pieces like the leather teddy bear and the Eye-Trunk iPhone cases destined to become collector’s pieces.
As far as bags are concerned, the drawstring tote bags (known as the Cabas Light) that will come in Monogram Eclipse, Monogram Canvas as well as a third in black fabric will be high on everyone’s wish list. There’s also a miniaturised version, known as the Nano Bag (you can view it here over on my Instagram page) that’s too cute, I mean, too cool to resist.
There’s plenty of RTW too, from varsity jackets to tees and everything in between to help you channel that back-to-school vibe that’s frankly nostalgic. And because there are more details that only be released in due time (and in due time we mean in the coming days), just sit back, relax and just start planning what will be the must-haves from this collaboration that you’ll really have to get.

This just in! After Tokyo, Singapore will be the second city in the world to host its very own pop-up store in collaboration with Surrender @ 268 Orchard. #scream
Besides the fact that everyone on our sunny island will get faster access to the much-coveted collection, ‘pop-up’ in #LVSingapore speak also means there will be exclusive pieces in limited numbers of pieces which will make the queuing so much more bearable. Yes, there will be definitely a long queue, just like the one they had in Tokyo last year when the first #LVxFragment collection was launched.
Italian fashion brand Prada unveils its pre-fall 2017 campaign called ‘The Nonconformists’. Spotlighting the new season looks, Willy Vanderperre captured models Natalie Westling, Mia Brammer and Kris Grikaite before the collection was showcased. The trio of models appear in a juxtaposition of two portraits—one a closeup black and white photograph, and another a 3/4 shot. Pre-fall features corduroy, fuzzy cardigans and fur–highlighting Prada’s signature eclecticism.
Top model Ophelie Guillermand graces the April 2017 cover of Glamour France. Photographed by Ami Sioux, the brunette embraces denim in a Maje Denim kimono and Gucci belt. Fashion editor Virginie Benarroch dresses the French model in biker chic looks full of denim, leather and casual tees. Ophelie is perfectly laid-back cool in the designs of Levi’s, Pepe Jeans and Zadig & Voltaire.

Bringing you a thrilling peek into what the fashion world could look like in the near future, this Chanel CC Chip Minaudiere is both creative and classy at the same time.

Now let’s take a closer look. As earlier mentioned this clutch has a microchip design in shiny silver color. To balance it out, Chanel added a flower pattern, mini pearls and crystal-like designs to give it a touch of luxurious femininity. Also, the CC logo is prominently displayed in the middle as if announcing to the world that you own a futuristic Chanel bag.
It has a silver-tone hardware to match the design and has a clasp at the topmost part for easy access. This bag also comes with a removable chain so you can always opt to carry it by the hand, over the shoulder, or even cross-body!
