In the interview, Ariana Grande talks about feminism, pointing out how a UK radio station praised Justin Bieber and Zayn Malik for going shirtless but criticized Miley Cyrus and Kim Kardashian for doing the same. “If you’re going to rave about how sexy a male artist looks with his shirt off,” Grande says, “and a woman decides to get in her panties or show her boobies for a photo shoot, she needs to be treated with the same awe and admiration. I will say it until I’m an old-ass lady with my t°°s out at Whole Foods.”

Bally S/S16 Oblique & Sommet

Categories:Other Brands

IMAGE: BALLY

While I’m always on the lookout for something new as far as bags are concerned, it’s not getting any easier because after a while, you realise everything on the market is pretty much the same. It’s either an adaptation of a style that’s been around since bags were regarded as tools, a non-rigid container if you will, to carry berries and grains (says Wikipedia, by the way) from one point to another, or bags that look like someone else’s bags.

Then there are bright sparks, bags that come in a unique enough design that are both big on form and function. And for today’s post we address two such bags from Bally’s S/S16 collection, the Oblique and the Sommet.

Let’s start with the Oblique, also known as the bright spark I was talking about earlier. A simple straightforward rectangular shoulder bag which comes with a portion of its flap cut off and replaced with a push-lock clasp, it’s a smart looking handbag that will progress easily from day to night. Packed with 2 internal compartments and 3 pockets, it comes in exotic crocodile, grained calfskin and even interesting combos like canvas on leather or pony hair on leather, with prices starting from just SGD2390.

Now for the former, Bally’s Sommet. Looks like a bag you’ve seen before, right? And while you can’t quite put your finger on it, my suggestion is this. Instead of getting hung up on what it was or what it could be, let’s focus on its merits instead.

For starters, it’s a roomy enough tote for the working woman, with the one in Mediummeasuring some 35 cm by 24.5 cm. Topped with 2 short handles, you can wear it with the front flap closed, or completely open and tucked at the back for a different look. Even the sides can be presented differently; the sides can either stick out or tuck in, depending on the amount of space you actually need on any given day. To dress it up, just throw on a bag charm or wrap the handles with a long and thin printed silk and you’re good to go.

Besides the ones in exotic crocodile, you can also opt for the ones that come in either grained or smooth calfskin, and apart from the Medium there’s also another in Smallwhich measures 28 cm by 20 cm and adorably cute. Prices start from SGD1990 for the small ones in grained leather to SGD2490 for the ones in Medium. Affordable too, right?

Dolce & Gabbana Debuts Three One-of-a-Kind Exotic Patchwork Bags

Categories:Other Brands

Dolce & Gabbana Exotic Sicily Bags

The whole trick of the luxury industry is to make consumers feel like they’re buying something rare when, in actuality, whatever we’re buying is almost certainly made in enormous quantities. As the industry expands, putting your hands on something unique gets harder and harder, which is why I took note of these Dolce & Gabbana Sicily Small Patchwork Exotic Bags atLUISAVIAROMA – they’re all one-of-a-kind.

Most brands produce one-of-a-kind pieces here and there to display in stores or offer to their best clients, but it’s not often that a brand as big as Dolce & Gabbana offers something totally unique at a third-party retailer, especially an exotic piece. Each bag is made from different-colored panels of crocodile and snakeskin, except for the bottom, which is leather. Also, each bag retails for right under $3,000, and although its not a bargain, it’s not nearly as much as most exotic bags from major brands usually cost, let alone a one-off piece.

For me, the winner of the trio is the bag with the pale blue crocodile flap; the contrast against the yellow snakeskin underneath is beautiful. Which is your favorite?

Taylor Swift Still Loves Her Favorite Dolce & Gabbana Bag

Categories:Other Brands

Taylor Swift Dolce and Gabbana Sara Bag

Here’s Taylor Swift, leaving the gym in NYC in the cutest post-gym outfit ever, carrying what is undoubtedly her favorite bag of the year: the Dolce & Gabbana Sara Bag. You can find a slightly more formal, brocade version of the Sara on sale for $1,274 (down from $1,820) at MATCHESFASHION.COM. It’s worth noting that this site is now offering free shipping and free returns (with full refunds on duties for returns) for US customers with the coupon code USAFREE.

Taylor loves this bag so much, we penned an extensive post about her love affair with the D&G Sara all the way back in April. In other news, is anyone else alarmed by the number of full grown, (presumably non-paparazzi) men that are standing around taking smartphone photos of Taylor? How about the guy who is obviously waiting to filch whatever she threw in the trash and list it on eBay?

Taylor Swift and Karlie Kloss Hang Out with Their Dolce & Gabbana Bags

Categories:Other Brands

Taylor Swift Dolce & Gabbana Agata Bag Karlie Kloss Dolce & Gabbana Sicily Bag

Here are adorable, color-matching BFFs Taylor Swift and Karlie Kloss, leaving NYC brunch favorite Sarabeth’s in Tribeca. Both ladies are carrying black Dolce & Gabbana bags. Taylor’s is the Dolce & Gabbana Agata Bag, while Karlie has the Dolce & Gabbana Sicily Bag(formerly known as the Miss Sicily, but apparently Dolce is looking to simplify things). Taylor’s bag is currently out of stock online, but Karlie’s Sicily can be found for $1,995 at Barneys.

Taylor has been on quite a D&G bag kick as of late, and this Agata bag is fairly similar to her hands-down favorite handbag of 2014, the Dolce & Gabbana Sara Bag. You can see more of Taylor’s favorite bags in “The Many Bags of Taylor Swift,” and you can also check out some of Karlie’s top bag picks in “50+ Bags on the Arms of Our Favorite Supermodels”.
