Even though this outfit itself best exemplified effortless chicness, it was Rosie Huntington-Whiteley’s newest bag that caught my eye–her enviable Givenchy Obsedia. This beauty showed up in the house’s spring/summer 2014 collection. Besides the timeless yet modern color combinations, I love how practical it is. It has a detachable and adjustable shoulder strap, two compartments (one at the front with branded twist lock closure, one at the back).

My favorite part? The front flat can be tucked in for a whole new different look, which also means that you can carry it with the logo or logo free, kinda like the Luis Vuitton Capucines, but costs less than half as much. And does the sophisticated palettes remind you of Celine Trapeze?  Will ‘Obsedia’ be the new ‘Antigona’?

In Chinese: 今天的这个造型简约随性又不失女人味,但最吸引我的还是罗西·汉丁顿-惠特莉(Rosie Huntington-Whiteley)的新款手袋:来自纪梵希2014春夏系列的“Obsedia”。一露面就迅速打败“Antigona”,成为了我愿望清单里排在首位的包包。它的造型和色彩兼具古典和摩登气息。可拆卸也可以调整长度的肩背带以及前后两个隔间大大提升了它的实用性。

最让我倾心的设计细节是它前面像信封一样的翻面可以折进去,不但有了完全不同的新感觉,而且提供了显示品牌标识和不显示两种选择,对于我这种不喜欢Logo, 在很多场合更不想让包包识别度太高的人来说再合适不过。这个设计非常像路易·威登的‘ Capucines’,但价格还不到一半。另外它的优雅的拼色设计也让我想起了另一款总是被一抢而空的IT包–赛琳的‘Trapeze’。你觉得这个包会成为下一个炙手可热的’Antigona‘吗?

I'm Helen. In the huge fashion world, what attracts me the most is the way different people accessorize themselves. Our daily outfit choices are not just about the pieces we pick, they relate to something lurking deeply within our hearts: how we feel about ourselves, how we express ourselves to the rest of the world, what kind of people do we want to be and what kind of life do we want to live. Following my passion for fashion, I immerse myself in this bizarre world and try my best to share what I learned with you!
