Written by John Hughes and directed by Howard Deutch, the 1986 movie ‘Pretty in Pink’ continues to be a classic. The film follows the story of Andie (Molly Ringwald), who grows up on the poor side of town. She has a crush on the rich kid Blane (Andrew McCarthy), and Andie must choose between him and her childhood friend Duckie (John Cryer).

Through it all, the film features a view of 1980’s teen fashion with a cool New Wave soundtrack. One of the most iconic style moments from the film comes courtesy of a prom scene where Andie shows up in a pink dress she made herself. So what was the story behind the iconic look? Costume designer Marilyn Vance sewed two dresses together to make the polka dot embellished piece. For more casual style, Andie embraced oversized proportions and playful accessories such brooches, earrings and hats. Discover more 1980’s fashion from ‘Pretty in Pink’ below.

DOLCE & GABANNA CHEVRON LUCIA SHOULDER BAG

Other Brands

Dolce-_-Gabanna-Chevron-Lucia-Shoulder-Bag

The Dolce & Gabbana Lucia Bag is not a recently-released handbag. But when we spotted this bag in Chevron Quilting, we stopped and pause. It’s actually quite impressive. Now, the Chevron Quilting print embellished on the Lucia Bag is an improved version for the Fall Winter 2017 Collection. If you start falling in love with this bag, perhaps you might want to read on!

The Design

Dolce-_-Gabanna-Chevron-Lucia-Shoulder-Bag-4

The Lucia Shoulder Bag has a sophisticated look but very modern and timeless. We belief this is an one-time purchase and forever-yours investment, because this bag will never get old.

The boxy shape makes it intriguing and the adjustable short handles are quite flexible. You see, you can adjust the short handles to your comfort – you can then carry the bag on your shoulder (with the short-handles) or just tote it by hand. But of course, it also comes with a long shoulder leather strap, which can be removed and also be adjusted.

What’s most fabulous is the Chevron Quilting embellished all over the body of this bag. Then it’s finalized with a sophisticated clasp surrounded by 7 studs.

Made from calfskin leather, which is a durable and scratch-resistance material.

The Interior

Dolce-_-Gabanna-Chevron-Lucia-Shoulder-Bag-3

When D&G creates a handbag, they think about the interior as much as the exterior. The space of this Lucia Bag has been maximized in order to help you store as much necessities as possible. Inside you will find two compartments, a zipped central compartment, a slot pocket and card slots. With so much compartments, it’s easier to organize your essentials.

The Sizes And Prices

Measuring 7.5’ x 10’ x 4.5’ (H x W x D) inch, priced at $2995 USD, €2250 euro, $3950 AUD, $22900 HKD, ¥319000 JPY.

CELINE BOWLING BAG

Other Brands

Celine-Bowling-Bag

If you take a look at Celine’s classics like the Vertical Cabas Bag or the Phantom Cabas Bag, then the style of this Bowling Bag is certainly matching. It’s minimal, so Celine and there is no bowling bag in the classic collection yet. The look and shape are very useful for many occasions; you can carry it for work, for the gym or when you need to travel during the weekends. The interior is roomy enough to carry a lot of stuff and it’s easier to transport on longer distance than a Cabas Bag.

The design

The Bowling Bag is shorter but bigger in width to make it easier to carry when you’re always on the way. The design is so flawless and timeless because it’s made in solid color and very minimal. There are no distractions other than the appreciation for the impeccable leather quality. It comes with two leather handles, but unfortunately no shoulder strap.

The interior

The inside is quite spacious and you can store a lot of stuff including your clothing. This bag is also perfect as a hand-carry travel bag. Open the bag with double zipper, the inside features two wide flat pockets with strap closure and two small flat pockets as well as one large compartment.

Made from calfskin, measuring 16’ x 10’ x 9’ inches, priced at $3400 USD, €2200 euro, £2050 GBP, $4350 SGD, $26500 HKD, ¥340000 JPY, ¥25000 CNY at Celine boutiques.

This bag is released for the Fall 2017 Collection.
