Alessandra Ambrosio on ELLE Russia April 2017 Cover
Supermodel Alessandra Ambrosio lands the April 2017 cover of ELLE Russia. Photographed by Ellen von Unwerth, the Brazilian beauty wears a floral appliqué gown in pretty pastel shades for the front image. In the cover spread, Alessandra dazzles in looks from the spring haute couture collections.
Stylist Ekaterina Mukhina makes sure the Victoria’s Secret Angel truly shines in a mix of crystal embroideries, bold blooms and off-the-shoulder gowns. Alessandra wears the designs of Chanel Haute Couture, Dior Haute Couture and Elie Saab Haute Couture for the glamorous spread.

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.Designer Shoes Christian Louboutin launches spring-summer 2017 collection

As if things couldn’t get any better for our favorite Louis Vuitton Noe Bag, suddenly comes this beautiful rendition of it in the newest and latest NeoNoe Bag. You can look closer and compare them side-by-side and you’ll instantly notice the difference without a hitch!
Designed in 1932 originally as a bag made to transport bottles of Champagne, the Noe comes back and returns for the Spring summer 2017 Collection as the NeoNoe. A modern and on-trend bucket bag in supple Monogram canvas made more beautiful with colorful calf-leather accents, this one definitely wins the game.
It features a luxurious Monogram coated canvas that is beautifully complemented by gold-color metal hardware. Aside from this, it also has a colorful calf-leather trim and a colorful bonded microfiber lining for an added fashion twist.
The NeoNoe Bag also has a drawstring closure for easy access and has an adjustable long strap with press studs so you can stylishly carry it in whatever way works best for you. Looking inside, it has an inside zipped pocket to keep your things organized.
Comparing it with the original Noe bag, you’ll notice that the adjustable strap is re-designed as the side leather is entirely done in Monogram Canvas.
Measuring 10.2” x 8.7” x 10.6” (L x H x W) inches and is priced $1390 USD, $1770 AUD, ¥10700 CNY via Louis Vuitton boutiques.
