Red Carpet Inspiration

Red carpet look
Looking for fashion icons and celebrities to inspire your own formal affair events or weddings? This month we have received many inquiries to custom made dresses from our clients favourite designers. Some may not have the budget for these luxury dresses, we can still take inspiration from those stunning looks.

Can’t get enough of her (wink)!

It’s always best to scour magazines and websites for dress ideas and pick a theme or look for the event. Your theme can be based on a colour, such as glamorous red or chic black, or can be centred around a celebrity's style you admire (my personal favourite style icon – Kate Middleton). If you prefer and settle on classic simple dress with clean cut lines, then refine your style to Audrey Hepburn’s look.

If your event is being held at a place with a bright colour palette try and blend with the most dominate colour. The ‘less is more’ red carpet approach works better for some, however there is nothing wrong to go ‘all out’. Never stop yourself because you think that something is too much. The best thing to ask yourself is if something looks good on you or not.

Most importantly, if you have a formal event coming up, plan well in advance. Don’t leave it to the very last minute, custom made dress will take at least 1-2 months to complete. Make alterations and practice wearing your dress and heels. Many women opt for dresses that they typically do not wear for night time events. As such, not only does the dress usually need to be tailored, but you need to practice moving, sitting and walking comfortably in the dress.

Longchamp Le Pliage Cuir

Longchamp Cuir
The most popular Longchamp Spring Summer 2012 bag, the iconic Le Pliage incarnated in a new leather version, “Cuir” is already making its mark to all fashionistas around the world. Earlier March this year from the launching of the Le Pliage® Cuir line, the vibrant colour palette for Spring/Summer really shows its versatility and definitely an absolute must-have for this season.


The lovely bags were placed securely inside the dust bag

Love the fresh smell of ‘Metis’ leather

Available in 8 different colours for medium size Le Pliage Cuir

In our recent short trip to London, we managed to get our hands on to the most sought after colours of Le Pliage Cuir – Orange and Cyclamen (booking was made few weeks before, pheww!). Those who love to own a versatile and practical ‘leather’ bag, this is the perfect everyday bag and I LOVE the fact you can fold it to be your neat little bag fits into your carry-on luggage (good investment for travellers) plus it comes with removable shoulder strap. Yes, I know it’s irresistible!

The Orange and Cyclamen smallest Le Pliage Cuir (25x23x16 cm)



Tadaa, now we can hook the shoulder strap!

Longchamp created this bag as a carry-anything flexible day bag and this new updated Le Pliage version is made from a unique soft leather ‘metis’ (means mixed race). It’s flexible and durable, which is why these bags can be folded repeatedly. The smallest Le Pliage Cuir comes in 3 dazzling colours – Cyclamen, Orange and Red, and you will be spoiled by more different sizes and colours too!

Jacquard tan fabric interior


Irresistible delicious colour!


We love the Orange Le Pliage Cuir too, a trendy colour for this season!

You can see the design of Le Pliage Cuir is similar as its predecessor, the Le Pliage canvas having the same flap, zip closure, double handles and nickel hardware. These bags available in 8 delicious shades, and 5 sizes: travel bags, two totes, shopper and pouch. It has soft leather removable shoulder strap and a Jacquard printed lining.

While the Le Pliage Cuir is perhaps slightly heavier than the canvas ones, it is definitely lighter than many other full leather bags. It’s time to get your new iconic bag in leather now, what will be your favourite colour? For more information and orders on Longchamp bags, please contact us at or click here to send us inquiry. Enjoy the vid folks!
