Pre-Fall shopping spree

Pre-Fall shopping spree

Shopping for pre-fall and updating your closet is the extra bonus you have to give yourself, but before you let the grandeur stores bewilder you and alternate your planning, we ventured out on a luxury outing to select, shortlist and polish your bag buy. BlabberCat goes for her inter-seasonal shopping spree and here are our top picks from Michael Kors and Furla’s Pre-Fall collection. 

Pre-fall, like the resort collections before it, is what you might call a seasonlet. The presentations are smaller scale and more mainstream than their fall and spring counterparts. the season changeover can be trying (for retail, especially) with spring items having gone on permanent sale while fall items haven’t yet been delivered.

Michael Kors – Not only a favourite among the celebrities, but since Michael Kors has opened it’s welcoming doors to Calcutta. Elegance is the most desired look fashionistas and grace comes with glory that is followed balanced accessorising. BlabberCat loved the watches and minimal jewellery at Michael Kors besides the spectacular range of feminine colours accented simply with gold-toned hardware. Our picks from the ‘MICHAEL Michael Kors’.

Savannah – Pastels are big 2017 and fashion houses are inspiring from these shades and structures from vintage palate. Celedon, Peach, Bisque and White Savannah large leather satchel (Rs 38,4500) were according to us the MICHAEL Michael Kors must haves. Our favourite was Celedon for it’s heady sea wave colour for this Monsoon from brunch to party hopping.

Cynthia leather satchels are available in large and medium. Both timeless and on-trend, this satchel is replete with sophisticated details, from its leather-trimmed chain-link handles to the convertible, buckle-fastened shoulder strap. An array of interior pockets and a top-zip closure keep all of your essentials organized and secure. Crafted from sumptuous leather that only gets better with time, it’s the ideal everyday bag, season after season.

Lady-like in dusty pink and prettily perforated Saffiano leather has it’s own place in our pretty hearts. This Ava crossbody gives a glimpse of what’s inside and is definitely working well for desi chicas who are thinking of pairing with all festive looks.

 

Furla – It has long been associated with candy bags and undoubtedly it’s irresistible and every girl deserves one Furla candy bag but this Pre-Fall BlabberCat selected three other style appealing to a completely different style and purpose.

Capriccio Hobo, Bluette, 30,000/-

One shade more dreamy than yesteryear’s colour trend electric blue. The boss lady need no look further for all her oomph is bundled up under this wide sharp strap.

Metropolis Sling, Rose, 23,000/-

An addition to your basic should be a Furla Metropolis in a colour that would compliment your wardrobe the most. If you already are accustomed to the metropolis slings then select a vibrant colour that would level up the glamour quotient in casual outings. Blabbercat’s favourite cross body was the rose – a romantic blush is every girl’s weakness and authoritative at the same time. A surefire game.

Minerva Hobo, Onyx, 43,000/-

Blue over black for designers this season but keeping daily functionality in mind the blue is just on the inside and yet visible enough to know the bag is a lot more. Simply striking and big spells out style in bold with this slouchy Furla hobo bag is crafted in pebbled leather and accented with logo lettering. Suede-lined interior with optional slim zip pouch. Wide leather handle and polished chain strap.

Added accessory: Bubble Bracelet, Lava, 8,000/-

Step out with the season’s most coveted handbags. In an easy ladylike structure, these pieces have taken the place of the once-ubiquitous slouchy hobos. Or even the redundant miniature slings. A raw street chic kind of fashion comes with this brand. This season, ‘stay ahead of the fashion pack’ is the new mantra and that’s why when I received Baggit’s bag from the pre-fall 2016 collection, I instantly identified it as my new travel bag. But over here, travel I don’t necessarily mean taking it only on flights; it would eventually go on to become my only utility accessory on outdoor work days. From shoots, to cafes or just hanging with the homies after the gym, my new Baggit is not bulky or fragile. Ample amount of space with segregated compartments, options of becoming a rucksack, sling bag and even a hand bag; my new Baggit is highly recommended. All denim could sound a bit high-schoolish but when just the visual texture of denim is added to electric blue leather with a subtle leather latch its then called – LAFFINITY.

The big fashion moments are usually an image, a colour or a silhouette that is powerful and striking, that captivates our attention and remains as an experience. It’s been a while since a plain coat and dress generated a jaw-dropping reaction in couture. At other times, we are drawn to the work of a designer our subconscious and it is less easy to define exactly garments which aren’t about first impressions alone.
