Once again, the Alice Eddé collection garners its inspiration from the spectrum of  colors blooming in Alice’ own garden.
Rich,  deep and exotic,  the mauveemerald and  heather jewel  tones  of Winter’s
cyclamens,  violets,  primroses  and  evergreens  are  celebrated,  and  contrasted
with  classic  blacks.  This  allows  the  punctuations  of  color  to  really  pop,  and
brighten any outfit this season.

 

The collection comprises a full range of sizes, from tote messenger bags and lux 
backpacks  to  clutches  and  smaller  leather  goods, including  laptop  sleeves  and
phone covers.
Handcrafted by  traditional artisans in Byblos, Lebanon  from  the highest quality
nubucks,  leathers,  lambskins and  fabrics,  these  elegant  yet  fashion‐forward
statement  pieces  are  designed  in  the  distinctive  Alice  Eddé ‘envelope’  style,
which can easily take you from midday to soirée.

 

I loved the collection, especially how the bright colors were introduced (pink and yellow), and I appreciated the small-sized bags, that you can carry with you everywhere.

My favorite bag from the collection is this one, mixing golden and black.

The Dream Catcher Collection By Mukhi Sisters


I attended the launch of the latest collection by the Mukhi Sisters, the “Dream Catcher

dreamcatcher1

Originally conceived by the Native American Ojibwe people, Dream catchers were made to represent Asibikaashi, the Spider Woman, who took care of people and especially children across the land. Made of a circle, which was then weaved across in a web-like pattern and then decorated with feathers, the dream catcher was hung from a bed, “catching” all bad dreams and letting only good ones through, allowing the dreamer a peaceful and serene slumber.

From this original inspiration the Mukhi Sisters have created a collection that represents the chasing of good dreams and making these dreams into a reality.

The Dream Catcher Collection, which includes earrings, pendants, rings, bracelets and body pieces, for both men and women, is a symbol of the persevering passion to make good things happen; to strive for a dream and make it happen. Designed in both yellow and rose gold, the collection mostly incorporates the use of diamonds and turquoise, in fluid movement that symbolizes the energy of optimism.

It’s such a unique and lovely collection, dominated by feather designs, including colored stones. These splendid items, chic and simple, will add a touch of brightness to your outfits.

FIVE reasons why you should wear a BENSIMON!

Summer is here with Paul Fredrick!


Paul Fredrick_logo

Paul Fredrick was founded 25 years ago. Originally specializing in dress shirts, their collection has grown exponentially as has their number of satisfied long-term customers. They design, manufacture and directly distribute every item in their collection. No wholesalers. No store fronts. Just great style at everyday prices.

The Summer 2014 collection is characterized by light and comfortable seer sucker suits, unique patterned ties, and colorful dress dress shirts

Their summer collection features light pastel colors, but also bright bold colors made from lightweight material to keep you smart but not a dripping mess of sweat in summer.

You can see a lot of pink also, in their ties and suits collection, pink is something that is stereo-typically set to women’s fashion, but in the past few years we have seen pink slowing making its way through the men’s fashion industry, and men are really starting to embrace it.

This season’s fashion is balanced between bold and subdued, modern and retro.

Men’s suits are beginning to move away from the ultra-slim cuts of recent years. This summer sees suits fitting more loosely, with softer lines and a more relaxed appearance.

Their suits are made of lightweight fabrications, fresh color with some twists on classic details.

I like how they combined different colors and patterns, the contrast makes the combination young, dynamic and very summerish.

Are you ready to update your summer wardrobe?

Poise Design Sweet Extravaganza Spring/Summer 2014


 

About two weeks ago, Poise Design hosted a private presentation of its Spring Summer 2014 collection at La Posta, Achrafieh.

The new collection perfectly translates the designer’s philosophy. The designs are fresh and young, inspiring from the most delicious treat to the eye – desserts. It is a combination of ingredients that harmoniously come together to create an unforgettable feeling: the grand finale that has the power to make or break an entire meal, and its impact will last the longest.

This is the philosophy used with every pair, bringing together fluffy, colorful and playful dessert-inspired undertones with high-end materials and the setting was beautiful, simply perfect for a sweet and romantic macaroons and champagne afternoon.

The event also revealed the brand’s first collaboration with prominent fashion and lifestyle blogger and stylist, Lana El Sahely from larmoiredelana.com. She styled the MERINGUE sandals an iconic pair of POISE DESIGN flats, using metallic pink gold, gold and patent nude pink leathers. Her ‘Meringue a l’or rose’ is your perfect pair of flats to match your day/night summer looks.

All the collection is amazing, but my favorite pair was this golden majestic shoe
