Louis Vuitton x Jeff Koons ‘Masters’ collection

Louis Vuitton x Jeff Koons ‘Masters’ collection

Behold bag fanatics, as what follows is everything you need to know about the Louis Vuitton x Jeff Koons ‘Masters’ collection. From styles to availability to prices – I’ve wrapped everything up for your convenience.

The collection derives from Koon’s recent Gazing Ball show, which presented repainted versions of iconic artwork from Da Vinci, Rubens, Titian and Van Gogh. Highlighting five key pieces, the emblazoned “gazing ball” (a large, glass bauble) featured in the show translated into striking coloured handles and a subdued metallic monogram.

Must-Have Logomania Designer Handbags

Do you remember the launch of the Anti-it bag movement in 2010, where high fashion was defined by clean cuts and quality fabrics alone? Well, obnoxious metal emblems and monogram prints are dominating the fashion week frows (and Instagram feeds) once again! Customers are embracing instantly recognisable symbols from designers such as Gucci, YSL, Louis Vuitton and Chanel.

And if you’re going to invest in any of these classic logomania styles, make sure it’s one of ones below…

Featured Collection: Gitta of Blondwalk

Just when I think I’ve obsessed over all of the seasonal Louis Vuitton styles, fashion blogger Gitta from Blondwalk always pops up on Instagram rocking a new bag. Where you find them, Gitta? How you co-ordinate them so well? Her previous experience in the fashion industry and modelling career accounts for that, as well as those killer poses.

But it’s not just LV – this blogger has a seriously enviable collection, which spans from Hermes to Gucci. I recommend you follow her on Instagram, unless you’re really trying to curb you’re spending, in which case you’re on the wrong website anyway…

Kendall Jenner wears the teeniest Louis Vuitton bag to date

Kendall Jenner continues to wear the teeniest tiniest Louis Vuitton bag (specifically the Louis Vuitton Murakami Mini Speedy). To put that in perspective it’s roughly the same size as the pom pom it’s attached to but hey, maybe she uses it for her spare change and… a lipstick?

It isn’t in stock online or in Louis Vuitton boutiques but keep an eye out on websites like Fashionphile and Vestiaire Collective for a pre-owned version. I won’t judge.

7 affordable designer handbags (under £500)

Given that we’re still a week away from payday, I thought it’d be nice to highlight some affordable designer handbags. Since the demise of Marc by Marc Jacobs, I assumed it’d be a lot harder to find a good handbag under £500. But I’ve been suprised to see the new brands and styles which have cropped up lately and it turns out, there’s options for every size, style and occasion.

Affordable designer handbags

Michael Kors Metallic Backpack (£220) | Chloe Mini Faye (£525) | Mansur Gavriel Tote (£475) | A.P.C. Demi Lune Shoulder Bag (£315) | Marc Jacobs Snapshot Shoulder Bag (£390) | Clare V Leopard Shoulder Bag (£275) | Sensi Studio Straw Tote (£200)

 

You’ll spot I may have slipped in a Chloe bag at £525. I couldn’t help it and lets face it, there’ll be a 10% off code around there somewhere…

Gucci GG Margont bag (from £795)  |  Saint Laurent Kate monogram bag (£1,495)

Sadly my LFW invite(s) were lost in the post yet again for the Autumn/Winter ’17 shows, but that didn’t stop me from lurking outside to photograph the ensembles sported by editors, bloggers and my fellow street style photographers.

Logomania continues it’s reign with an abundance of instantly recognisable cross-body bags from Gucci, YSL, Prada and J.W. Anderson.
