Victoria Beckham Fall 2011 Bag Collection

Yesterday I attended the Victoria Beckham press day in London.

I was really curious to see the bag collection up close, and see if the prices are really justified.

The quality is impeccable as the Italian made collection is made from the finest leathers with attention being paid to the smallest detail.

I saw a variety of different styles including an updated ‘Victoria’ bag, plus the Travel cases and hexagonal chain bag in additional colours. These styles appear to be the signature pieces.

The collection had some new additions including iPad cases, blackberry cases, plus totes and duffel bags which didn’t have Victoria’s signature structure.

For those of you were turned off by the structured bags, this collection included a variety of bags with a softer silhouette. Slouchy cross body nomadic bags – which David Beckham has been sporting – were included in this collection so there is something for the fellas too.

I got totally sucked into this collection I have to admit.

I fell in love with the two tone mustard bags. The convertible bag which can go from a shoulder bag to a clutch is too die for, as is the ‘Victoria’ soft suede tote in the same colours.

I’m hoping they are added to Net-A-Porter.com, but I’m sure they will sell out before I can get my Amex out of my purse.

Prices for these bags start from £900 for the shoulder bags up to £8,000+ for the ‘Victoria’ crocodile bag.

River Island Summer 2011 Press Day

Yesterday evening I was transported to Marrakesh courtesy of River Island.

The press day showcased their Summer 2011 Moroccan inspired collection which included maxi dresses, palazzo pants, kaftans, embellished sandals, heart-shaped sunglasses, bags and other accessories including earrings, necklaces and bracelets.

The colours, tones, prints and fabrics were amazing just like you’d expect to see at the souks in Morocco.

This spicy collection would look great at summer bbq, on vacation or summer festivals.

After viewing this collections and drinking the delicious cocktails on offer I immediately wanted to book a vacation.

At the press day we were treated to a live look book photoshoot.

The models were undeterred as we watched them strike several poses for the photographer.

The live images were projected on a huge screen and on iPads for live selection of our favourite pictures.
