Chanel: 8 Things You Should Know About

Categories:Other Brands


With barely 6 more days to go before the launch of Singapore’s very own #COCOCAFE, here’s your exclusive first look at what the interior will look like (even if it’s just an artist’s impression) and more importantly, 8 things you must know about this cafe-themed beauty experience that kicks off this Saturday.

#1 – This is officially Chanel’s first ever beauty pop-up in Singapore and it’s happening at Visual Arts Centre @ Dhoby Ghaut Green from 8 April to 16 April 2017. How does one get there? It’s pretty much right smack at Dhoby Ghaut MRT Station’s Exit A & B. But if you’re driving or taking a cab, the exact address is #01-02 Dhoby Ghaut Green, 10 Penang Rd, Singapore 238469.

#2 – Priority entry slots have been fully reserved, but you are still welcome to walk-in. Admission is free, so make it a fun weekend activity with the girlfriends or take a slight longer lunch hour than usual (and no, we won’t tell on you either).

#3 – Created to be a truly one-of-a-kind beauty experience that mirrors the vibrant cafe culture in Paris, you can be sure every inch of this pop-up will be Insta-worthy. From subway tiled walls to bright neon signs to a dedicated Rogue Coco Gloss room you can actually step into, it’s best you bring an extra powerbank or two.

#4 – You’ll be amongst the first few to get a first look at the LES INDISPENSABLES DE L’ÉTÉ from the Cruise 2017 makeup collection before the rest of Singapore gets it in May 2017. Other lines that you’ll be able to experience/try out include Chance (fragrance), Hydra Beauty(skincare) and Rogue Coco Gloss (makeup).

#5 – Complimentary beauty services will also be held daily (subject to availability) and they will last around 15 minutes or less to help you save on time. We’re talking lip pairing (which colours work best for you), mini makeovers and even flash manicures using only the best that Chanel has to offer.

#6 – For something more relaxing, check out the Hydra Beautysmoothing hand massage that will be perfect for those Insta-fatigued fingers. Especially after uploading your umpteenth COCO CAFE snapshot to Instagram.

#7 – For those of you who have already done your online reservations, you’re in for a treat as far as drinks are concerned! Choose from hot coffees, hot teas, four different juice medleys and even a beauty bubble tea. No, we don’t exactly know what’s inside but we will definitely be trying that out too!

#8 – And for those who make a purchase (any purchase) at the #COCOCAFE pop-up,  you’ll also receive a complimentary slice of cake or a tart for dine-in or takeaway. And because there’s even more to be announced soon (including special fringe activities), do stay tuned for further updates!

Kendall Jenner wears leather, mesh and fringe dress from Balmain’s fall-winter 2017 collection

For Balmain’s fall-winter 2017 show, Olivier Rousteing gave an Amazonian strength to his Balmain army. The warriors casted included models Kendall Jenner, Gigi Hadid, Elsa Hosk and Jourdan Dunn. The French designer focused on leather, suede, fringe and tweed. Form-fitting, bodycon dresses contrast with draped fabrics and loose-fitting shapes. A color palette of black, chocolate brown and tan brought dark vibes to the collections.

Rousteing gave his inspiration for the new season within the show notes. “The women of this diverse Balmain army revel in their freedom to celebrate themselves, their beauty and their power. Their impressive inner strength is manifest in this collection’s many animal patterns, prints and illustrations. Next season’s focus on animal prints also builds upon a long Balmain tradition.”

Bottega Venetta Continental Wallets

Categories:Other Brands

Bottega Veneta wallets are sensible and easy on the eyes.continental-wallet-2

Bottega Veneta is a beautiful Italian fashion house like no other. Its woven calfskin leather, referred as intrecciato, is the house’s identity in the world of leather goods. Big intrecciato bags are always a treat, and the texture is disarmingly good. But, sometimes you don’t want to lug around such big pieces all the time.continental-wallet-1

That’s why small leather goods are always a treat to have. SLGs, like Bottega Veneta’s Continental Wallets, are so easy to lug around on a daily basis because they sit nicely inside whatever bag you’ve decided to carry for any particular day. And if you are a fan of the intricate texture BV is known for in their leather goods, you won’t miss it so much in a wallet form, because this way you can use it everyday.continental-wallet-3

The continental wallet has a generous number of slots to hold your cards including two slip pockets. It also has two main bill pockets, one thicker and the other thinner, so you can insert any odds and ends that you may be carrying around with you. It’s a great wallet to hold. I especially like the fact that it doesn’t have a zipper inside – something I’ve quite learned I particularly wish weren’t there sometimes – making it a much simpler wallet to carry. (Though, there are variations of this wallet that does have zippers, if you like them).

So if you’re looking for a luxury wallet, don’t forget to include Bottega Veneta in your choices.

Prada Paradigme Bag

Categories:Other Brands

I’ve always been a Prada girl; in fact, my first premiere designer bag was a nylon Prada messenger bag that I used for college. Did it fit everything I needed? No. But I loved that bag, and I made it work. Now, I’m a major fangirl for Prada’s more structured offerings. The brand does Saffiano so well, and some of its classics, like the Prada Double and Prada Galleria bag, are among the most sought-after bags out there.

Enter the Prada Paradigme Bag. I love this bag. I simply love it. The Saffiano and calf leather combo is oh-so-lovely, and the interior of the bag is made for ease of use, with two accessible zippered pockets and two interior pockets, including one with a zipper closure. The bag has offset color embellishments on the shoulder strap and inside, which gives just the right touch of playfulness without going overboard.

This bag is made to be easy to carry, with double leather handles and a detachable and adjustable leather shoulder strap. And like many other Prada bags, there are ample colorways, so you can find one that meets your fancy. All I can say is this bag is what my Prada dreams are made of and I love the black with pink combo. Overall dimensions are 12.2″ x 9.2″ x 5.9″. $2,710 via Prada.
