Über-chic "just because" gifts*

*Teddy bear shaped marshmallows dressed in chocolate by Sonia Rykiel make an adorable gift to the sweet tooth in your life - the bow tie is killing me! <3 

*5 Euro Coin designed by Karl Lagerfeld for the 125th anniversary of Chanel, which will definitely be sentenced to the piggy bank for life. 

*The cutest t-shirts poke sarcastic fun at the current financial crisis:

Karl, Marc, and John adoooooore the crisis. (it sold out)

The crisis and I are pals on facebook

happy giving!

"In the heat of the jungle, in the heat of the night, sat an African princess in the pale moonlight."

Spring 2009 trend: Tribal accessories. 

From Dior's shoes adorned with fertility goddesses as heels, to LV's Frafra warrior mask shoes, 'tis the season to go tribal! 

Dare to wear?

Quite a photo shoot, hmm?

In a country where 465 million citizens live off 1.25$ a day, here goes a debate as to whether or not Vogue India was being sensitive enough about living conditions of millions of Indians. The 16-page photo shoot above triggered the debate between Vogue India's editor and the Indian citizens. Vogue India defends its work by saying it reflects "the power of fashion", and that "fashion is no longer a rich man's privilege. Anyone can carry it and make it look beautiful." Arguments against the photo shoot include descriptions of it -in local newspapers-as being distasteful, tacky, and vulgar. 

Featuring a toothless old man carrying a Burberry umbrella, a child from a poor family wearing a Fendi bib, do you think Vogue India took it too far? Or does their photo shoot really send a strong positive message across? I seriously doubt the latter. Tres intriguing nonetheless.
