Fun accessories are always in season. I personally love to have an unusual wallet, purse or other accessory that I enjoy carrying because of it's unique styling or design. Those featured here certainly fall into that category.

To commemorate the 100th anniversary of Selfridges, Louis Vuitton has launched a Concept Store, to celebrate its iconic Speedy bag.
The Speedy Concept Store features an insight into the history of the Speedy and the Louis Vuitton brand, as well as giving customers the opportunity to purchase product.
Specialist techniques such as hot stamping and Mon Monogram are available to customers, who can personalise there purchases.
The Speedy Concept Store incorporates an exhibition of Speedy bags, from Louis Vuitton’s long heritage.
A complete cross section of Speedy bags are on display, including collector’s items from the Louis Vuitton archives, such as the Takashi Murakami Cherry print bag, and the original Stephen Sprouse Speedy from 2001. (Luxuo) This has to be one of THE coolest displays that I've seen in quite some time.

Spotlight on Ranjana Kahn

I have been a fan of Ranjana Kahn ever since I initially found her pieces on HSN (Home Shopping Network). She has now moved on the the likes of Bergdorf Goodman, which is where the featured pieces were taken from. HSN states that Kahn is not only a designer, but a stylist as well. Further stated, Ranjana creates an eclectic and unexpected collection that mixes metals and luxurious fabrics in a truly unique way. (HSN) The wonderful mix of stones, fluid chains and fabrics are beyond exceptional.

Scenes from Vogue Italia

(Coute Que Coute)

"Style from Stella"

What a shoot! I love the way that each picture is set up. Stella has more than proved that she is a force to be reckoned with in the design arena. I love her range...each piece is it's own; by that I mean that she doesn't create "clone" pieces that are readily and easily identified. One can tell that much time and thought goes into each collection.

Solid Crystal Clutch

With clutch purses having become so popular again, I thought I would share this "little jewel". It was designed by Lena Bergstrom and is called "handbag Gunilla". Created from hand cut crystal, it boasts a steel handle for carrying. While it doesn't look as though it will hold much, it is certainly beautiful and will command much attention. It retails for $6000.
