Louis Vuitton Pochette Métis

There are bags that try as you might, never really become anything more than last season’s forgotten wares. Then there are those that become instant hits the moment they hit the shelves without even a huge publicity campaign behind it. Ones that are fuelled only by the bag’s good looks, functionality and of course, its relative affordability, that’s as rare as a unicorn as far as luxury bags go in the marketplace these days.

Which brings us to Louis Vuitton’s Pochette Métis, the triple threat entrant to the French luxury house’s family of bags that’s still a hit today even though it has been around since 2013. Measuring just 25 cm by 19 cm, it looks familiar because it was inspired by the Monceau, its stiffer, more severe predecessor. In the Pochette Métis you’ll see the similarities between the two, the briefcase-like style with its front flap, that unmistakable clasp, the top handle but with a more rounded body, and better function. In the Monceau you had a smaller compartment attached to the front of the bag; in the Pochette Metis you have two similarly-sized gusseted compartments with a zip patch pocket at the bag.

First made available only in Monogram Canvas (which is still highly sought after), the Pochette Métis has since been released in Monogram Empreinteleather (Pink as well as a Dark Blue with red piping), Monogram Infrarouge(that’s red monograms on black coated canvas) and most recently Monogram Reverse, which is the darling of the moment.

Priced from SGD2510 for the one in Monogram Reverse (I’m assuming it is more or less the same for the ones in coated canvas), you could wear it across the body or over the shoulder, remove the sling completely and use a twirled-up scarf as a sling, even wrap the handle with a silk bandeau to give it a completely new look. One bag, many different looks. Which in my books makes it even more desirable than the next.

Louis Vuitton S/S17 Chain It Bag

I’m sure you’re familiar with the Lockit, Louis Vuitton’s relaxed top handle tote that’s great for work or play. Now meet Louis Vuitton’s new bag of the season, the Chain It. At first glance, it’s your usual top handle handbag, complete with a long shoulder sling that allows one to wear it over the shoulder (or across the body). Pretty normal, right? Well, yes, until we get to its nautical-inspired chain.

Featuring a statement chain embellishment that runs the height of the bag, it looks as if the chain is weaved into the leather, an innovative process the design team is pretty chuffed about. Then there’s the lock on the bottom of the chain, which is also the clasp of the bag; you just need to press the sides of the lock to release the flap.

And besides the fact that you can completely remove the shoulder sling (something I really appreciate when it comes to helping the bag be more versatile), you can also retract the top handle, i.e you push it all the way to hide it as much as possible for a completely new look.

Measuring some 26 cm by 20 cm, the bag comes in Monogram Canvasthat’s topped with a black leather flap (SGD3600), along with something called Epi Jean (which is basically Epi leather made to look like light denim, SGD3950) as well as smooth calf leather in Pistache (SGD4250). Last but not least, there’s the one in Damier Malletage that’s also my personal favourite. Featuring LV’s iconic Damier pattern with a ‘puffed’ leather effect, it’s also the most tactile of the lot. Priced at SGD4750, it’s also the most expensive of the lot, which is also fully understandable because it’s the most exquisite.

Now available at Louis Vuitton boutiques in Singapore, you just need to head down and see if this is the one that you find yourself chained to at the end of the day. Sorry, bad pun, but you know what I mean.

LVMH MIGHT HAVE BOUGHT SUPREME, RAF SIMONS'S INFLUENCE ON AMERICAN FASHION

Did LVMH just acquire Supreme?
According to an unnamed source, luxury conglomerate LVMH might have just purchased Supreme for a cool $500 million, following an extremely buzzy collaboration between the streetwear brand and key house, Louis Vuitton. For now, this remains just another — albeit extra-juicy — fashion rumor, but we'll keep our eyes peeled for any official announcements. [Update: The New York Times' Vanessa Friedman Tweeted that this rumor was in fact false.] 

How Raf Simons's Calvin Klein debut will affect American fashion 
Simons's womenswear debut on the New York Fashion Week calendar has been one of the most hotly anticipated shows for months now, but how will the Belgian designer taking the helm at an iconic American house impact our industry as a whole? "All those houses that take on new people, it's always a challenge and a gamble," said Grace Coddington to the Times. "You just pray that it works for everybody." 

Puma reports successful fiscal year despite losses in Q4  
After praising the success of Fenty in every quarter of 2016, Puma officially has Rihanna to thank for a successful fiscal year. In its full-year earnings report, it credited the increasing success of its women's category to Rihanna's line — particularly the Fenty creeper, which "repeatedly sold out worldwide within mere hours of hitting the stores as soon as we launched new colourways," per the press release. Even in ready-to-wear, women's items have been top performers and in some cases acted as a "door opener" for retailers to start carrying more men's and kids' styles. The brand also noted the increased visibility achieved by ambassadors Kylie Jenner and Cara Delevingne, though it said it would be bringing on more athlete ambassadors in the new year — without ditching its celebrity contingent, however. Revenue was up 10 percent for the year.

Solange Knowles covers the March issue of Elle
The artist stars on the fashion magazine's Spring Fashion Issue, photographed by Terry Tsiolis and styled by Samira Nasr. In the cover image, Solange can be seen in a fire-engine-red coat by Norma Kamali and crimson pleated pants by Issey Miyake.
