Reversed into a wall?…forget Sheila’s wheels.

Posted in Uncategorized by Gregory on April 6, 2010

Jump out of the car and sweep up those prescious pieces, they could be worth more than your car….well at least mine. Maison Martin Margiela and his Reflector-embellished clutch could be yours for just over £600.

Voulue designer handbagsMaison Martin Margiela, with a width 15″ / 37cm  x height 6″ / 15cm x depth 1″ / 2cm, leather body covered with acetate reflector pieces… is an eye catcher. I would have liked it to light up so I could warn people behind me  that I was stopping to shop.

This style also comes a little larger and in white acatate, but Ive not seen it in the UK. This Belgium house brings  not only a contemporary edge but and one of questionability about his work, take a look at this

Voulue designer handbagsDont try tearing this open, it will cost you over £400 if you do, either way, it will cost you over £400 if you dont… for this metallic clutch. Stamped with a the barcode and the weight of the bag, it could easily be mistaken for food packaging, so keep your witts about you if you buy one of these. Width 18″ / 46cm  x height 15″ / 38cm x depth 1″ / 2cm

Stella’s musical contribution

Posted in British Fashion Designers by Gregory on April 5, 2010

This is a hard one for me, I can relate with the musical connection and admire the engineering and design of the handbag. But, I am now struggling with the like or dislike choice going round in my mind.Like the Louboutin story, Stella McCartney’s bag has sold out very quickly. Is this because its a work of art, a collectors piece to be placed on a plinth and admired… and respected with a price of £1335.00.

Voulue Boutique designer handbagsStella has modelled this on the piano accordian, to get an idea of its size it measures: Width 10″ / 26cm x Height 7″ / 18cm x Depth 6″ / 15cm and a handle drop  of 12″ / 30cm. My first thought was my “lippy” will fall out 0f the gaps! Be reassured, if you are lucky enough to get your hands on one, it does come with a lining.

Voulue designer handbags, totes and purses.The lining is a removable antique-rose satin pouch , finished and secured with a gold-tone zip fastening. If you are a wiz with the needle I suppose you could make your own replacement linings to suit your outfit….NOT!

Louboutin-Monty Python…esque

Posted in Uncategorized by Gregory on April 4, 2010

Visit Christian Louboutin’s online site and you will be catapulted back to the end of the sixties and the start of the new decade in which Monty Python’s Flying Circus changed the World. Within his Pythonesque website you will find a few Summer sizzlers comming your way. Here is one… the Talita clutch, “I want one”….too late, many stores have already sold out, so we will all have to wait to see if  it becomes available again.

If you prefer a larger version, Christian has made a shopper out of this artisistic and somewhat Punk with its studs and tear effect. This bag shouts and shouts loud…..”LOOK AT ME….I MEAN BUISNESS” do you have the attitude to carry these Louboutins off with style?

Wine stoppers to totes

Posted in Uncategorized by Gregory on April 3, 2010

The versatility of cork….even totes, this is from Elie Tahara, as he seduced you with his latest releases in elegance for women? Here are a few more from his collection, the first model is carrying the “Sasha” tote, a sensual little number. Followed by a more formal “Beveley” with a bold herringbone pattern.

Would you carry any of these handbags from the established and renowned New York fashion house of  Elie Tahara?

Botkier Revisited

Posted in American Fashion Designers by Gregory on April 2, 2010

As promised here is part two from Botkier starting with the “Rivington” collection, with its draw string top and soft lambskin body allows you plenty of carrying options with the versatile and variable double adjusters.

Black lambskin,natural snake calfskin, nickel and this one pictured above is in saffron lambskin. The Rivington collection comes as small priced at £190 or large at £238.

Next in the Botkier range is the  “Bowie” with its distinctive pyramidal leather stapping with decorative D-rings giving added support to the body of the bag. This Hobo comes in two colours,  black or gold as seen below at £180.

” Bowie” also comes as a  satchel, but you are restricted in colour choice with only the camel colo4r, made from cowhide. With an  asking price of £238 , would this get into your wardrobe? Tell us what you think of the “Bowie”on our Voulue Facebook page.

For those of you who  prefer the crossbody style there is the “Brooklyn”  a little less costly at £158.00, but crossbody bags are not my favourite type, I find them a little uncomfortable so this “cement” coloured bag wouldnt be for me.Though I like the design of the threaded leather working its way through the slouchy soft material of the body.

Voulue handbagsFinally I chose the Venice satchel (£240)  with the strong horizontal zips and vertical pulls, they give this bag a stregnth of character that I like, and this blue appeals to me, giving me a sense of freedom and rather less urban than the cement colours Botkier offers.
