Fall Fashion IT Bags 2012 – Clutches Edition

Hi lovelies!

Recently I blogged about Fall (in Love) Fashion IT handbags and I’m following up with a Clutches Edition! I’m excited to be posting about them because I’ve selected a pretty long list of 42 clutches across 5 themes. I’m fairly certain that at least 1 of them will tickle your fancy. Haha!

1. Glamorous Renaissance

Fall Winter season is the season for lots of partying and gatherings, thus it’s natural for the bags to reflect the opulence of the season! These choices are great for formal gala dinners and events.

2. Exquisite Florals

These bags keep in line with the larger than life decorations for Fall Winter, albeit with floral motifs.

J茅r么me Dreyfuss is a french label that began in 1998, opened his first store in 2008 and only gain widespread global fame recently. I reckon the label is an up and coming designer

Kotur is a bag label that began in 2004 and I am absolutely in love with her abstract designs! Very architectural and avant garde.

Olympia Le-tan聽

If you haven’t heard, all of Olympia Le-tan聽bags聽are handmade, and limited to only 16 of each design, with the ‘first edition’ handmade by聽LeTan聽herself. Her bags range from 1000 pounds and above. Most of them resemble book covers, and have been touted the “intellectual” (maybe more aptly as pseudo intellectual, haha!) bags. Anyhoo, getting a Le-Tan bag is a quirky and unique addition to a consummate fashion bag collector’s collection! (;

Pierre Hardy

Pierre Hardy the designer is born and raised in Paris. He is currently the creative director of Hermes’ jewelry division. His label specializes in shoes and bags for men and women.

5. Chic & Simple

For the lovers of the chic & simple style, here are some selection that I love and I think you’ll love too! A chic & simple bag is also perfect if you’re wearing fancy and elaborate gown and shoes to achieve a balance attire. (;

Blueprint Singapore 2012 | Asia’s Fashion Gateway

With thanks to my tutor Yvonne, V and I went down to visit Blueprint Tradeshow.

BLUEPRINT is a one-stop fashion trade gateway for East-West exchange, created to present up-and-coming International and Asian designers. It uniquely specializes in launching Pre-Spring collections and curates fresh and forward menswear, womenswear and accessories including jewelry, shoes and bags from emerging designers destined for international markets. – Blueprint.sg

Here are a few interesting brands that caught my eye when we were there for a little while.

In no particular order (maybe except for how I collected the namecards for reference, haha!) :

ATGAB

Stands for All Things Green and Beautiful and lives true to its name.

ATGAB’s Booth at Blueprint Tradeshow
Loving ATGAB’s colourful necklaces and headbands.

I love the idea of ATGAB and I am very glad to know that the owner and local (Singaporean) designer of this green label, Elaine has been able to sustain the label since 2009.

And she has a huge mission: To preserve the environment we live in by starting a serious green business.聽Elaine collects pre-loved handbags, cuts them up, re-thinks the materials, and hand-makes them into the most unexpected accessories.聽Every product is made up of at least 50% – 80% upcycled materials.聽Elaine is very proud of the workmanship of all designs, and take even more pride in the big hearts of their Bag Goddesses.聽A percentage of all profits would also go towards non-profit organisations as their way of giving back to society. –聽allthingsgreenandbeautiful.com/

The website has a count of number of bags collected and reused for their products. Which is really cute.

ATGAB is stocked at聽Soon Lee聽
73 Haji Lane
Singapore 189266

Urface

Is a very interesting brand that collaborates with artists / graphic designers to create one of a kind canvas tote / messenger bags, each limited to only 7 in the world.

Urface Canvas Bag
Urface Canvas Bag

I feel that there is a lot of potential to their brand. They remind me of the T-shirt brand Threadless, inviting designers to design T-shirts which are then voted online and produced for buyers. Most of the聽information on their FB page is in Thai, hopefully they will translate to english for a wider audience in time to come.

kiki culte

Nicknamed KitKat by her friends, Penn, a Cancerian is into myths, legends and fairy tales of sorts. The nocturnally inspired artist devotes all her time to her passion for all kinds of handcrafted art, which include the recent handmade weave accessories. –聽http://www.kikiculte.com/

I was drawn to kiki culte鈥檚 designs because of the rocker chic series. An example here:

The Le Roche series 1 is priced from $128-$188.

Prices for her various series are available here.

Holstad & Co.

I was first drawn to the booth because of the studded bags.

Holstad & Co. Pink Python Laptop Case

Available at $416 on their website here.

Holstad & Co. Black Python Laptop Case

Available at $416 on their website聽here.

I love the colours, the studs and the texture of the bags.

They also feature a range of jewellery on their website.

Suecomma Bonnie

Is a shoe brand that has been likened to Louboutin鈥檚 in Korea.

鈥↘orean shoe designer Bo-hyun Lee has taken the craft of shoe designing to the highest level, with each piece looking like a coveted work of art. Suecomma Bonnie’s handmade shoes are made of the most luxurious materials imported from Europe. Known for feminine and sexy styles, the brand has been worn by many Korean celebrities and featured in almost every top fashion glossies in Korea including Vogue, Elle, Harper’s Bazaar and W Magazine.鈥- http://www.futurefashionnow.com/index.php/main/designer/9

A few designs to tease your eyes on…

GlamRockChic

Helmed by a lovely lady Sarah Sheue whom V and I talked to at length, listening to her share about her brand’s history and design inspiration.

Here are two shoes that we were in love with from her booth!

GlamRockChic Pink and Black Wedges Summer 2013

This is a sample for her Summer 2013 collection, so it’s not produced or for sale yet! We love the colour combination and the spike details.

GlamRockChic

This shoe is striking because of the blend of tribal and rocker details which makes it unique.

Priced at US$120 – 200, free shipping to Malaysia, varying additional postage to international customers. Do check out the online store here.

Tip: If you refer 5 friends to the website, you get a 20% coupon for your next purchase! So it might cover your postage fees. (;

Timo Weiland

One last brand that is one of New York’s up and coming designer label by designer duo Timo Weiland and Alan Eckstein. I met them last year when I was helping backstage for their show in Blueprint 2011 and it was a wonderful coincidence to meet them again at the airport when I flew to Hong Kong.

Timo Weiland is the brainchild of New York鈥檚 dynamic IT duo Timo Weiland and Alan Eckstein. Known for quirky designs and colour palette, their collections are inspired by their mutual love of European history and travel. In July 2011, Timo Weiland was personally selected by Net-a-Porter鈥檚 Director as an inductee to the prestigious Council of Fashion Designers of America鈥檚 Fashion Incubator Program. –聽http://www.futurefashionnow.com/index.php/main/designer/5

Two of my favourite pieces from their Pre-Spring 2013 collection available for sale until June 19 here:

Timo Weiland Fossil Print Shirt Dress & Cut Out Tank
Timo Weiland Fossil Print Cutout Tank (Grey) available at聽USD聽185.00 here.
Timo Weiland Fossil Print Shirt Dress available at USD聽USD聽442.00 here.
Timo Weiland Shirt Dress w/ Lace Trim
Timo Weiland Shirt Dress w/ Lace Trim聽available at USD聽450.00 here.

I love their quirky yet formal design sensibility. These pieces reminds me of what Blaire in Gossip Girl would wear.

I was excited to meet Timo again and so I took a picture with him. (:

There were of course a lot other clothing labels but alas, I didn’t have the time to venture and collect details. Nonetheless I hope you enjoyed my recap of Blueprint 2012. Support local and Asian talents! (:
