Introducing Goyard

Handbag addiction is a scary thing indeed. Still we love to love handbags! And now, I’m sharing some of my favorite Goyard pieces. For those who aren’t familiar with the label, here’s a brief background on Goyard.

La Maison Goyard was founded in 1853 in Paris. Edmé Goyard worked as a malletier for a company then known as Maison Morel (founded in 1792), which his son, François, bought out in 1853. At that time, the company was renamed Goyard. In the past, the Grand Duke of Russia, the Maharajah de Kapurthala, The Duke and Duchess of Windsor and many aristocratic families, all travelled with Goyard luggage; and their special orders have always been an important part of Goyard’s reputation. Goyard is known for its hard-sided trunks and small accessories. All pieces are covered in a signature hand-painted patented chevron canvas made of cotton, linen, and hemp and displayed in various colors. The chevron canvas was created in 1892; and was traditionally produced in black and red. Other famous clients have included: Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, Madonna, Karl Lagerfeld, Gregory Peck, Pablo Picasso, Gary Cooper, Debra Messing, Kanye West, John D. Rockefeller, and Lupe Fiasco. – from Wikipedia.

I personally love the Saint Louis and Jeanne women’s handbags. I also love their steamer, jersey, and croisiere luggage bags. Croisiere is like the LV Speedy bag or the LV Keepall luggage. The size 18 or 35 of Croisiere is great for daily use… On the other hand if you’re going to need an all-around everyday bag, I suggest the Saint Louis. My favorite colors of the Saint Louis are the ones marked with a check… I know I checked a lot… hehe… If I can only afford all those… haha. Mind you, the Saint Louis GM is priced at about $1,000.

The Latest News on Louis Vuitton

Fashion Juice apologizes for the “lateness” so to speak, of this post. I have four updates to share in the world of Louis Vuitton.

 

Previously, I have featured the Louis Vuitton Watercolor Speedy handbag and LV Aquarelle bag. Now, we have the exact date. It will be released May 1! And dear readers, if you are among those who plan to purchase the watercolor speedy, you must make a reservation now. There’s a long wait-list!

 

Next, we have new line of bags in canvas… the Louis Vuitton Tahitienne GM and PM bags. Both are available in four colors: pink, lilac, sandy, and menthe (pink, purple, beige-y khaki, and green). In the US, the GM sells for $1,160 and the PM sells for $1,000. In the UK, the GM is $25 less while the PM is $15 less. It’s cheaper to buy LV’s in Europe.

Third, the new Galliera bag is out! There’s the Galliera PM and GM bags, $1,180 and $1,360 respectively.  It’s the one you’ve probably seen in the magazines and ads for quite some time now.

Last but not the least, a new XS bag in Mahina leather gives that soft touch of black leather in a great style. It’s sold at $2,780. Ouchy!

New Trends in the Beach

Back in the old days, there was a time when swim suits were just swim suits. One piece, plain, basic colors or black, and round neck are some of the adjectives to describe them. Then somehow designers became aware that women still need to be fashionable when going to the beach. After all, people spend more time lurking, hanging out, or enjoying themselves by the shore than in the water (right?). Thus, the multitude of fabulous prints and cuts were born. In recent years, one piece yet sexy swim suits boomed. It was also matched with exotic and metallic colors. This year, Vogue tells us that flirty swim suits are HOOOOT!!! Check these out.

Zebra Print is HOT!

Each year, the warmer months are the best seasons to sport prints of all sorts. You’ll find spring and summer dresses in floral prints, abstract prints, splash of water and sky prints, and then there are the animal prints… Let me make it clear though, animal prints are great for any season! However, this spring and summer season, it’s all about the ZEBRA print! It is one of the HOTTEST prints you can score! Just check out the Antonio Melani bag and Jones New York dress from Dillards below. And how about my previous post about the Dior Zebra Flap bag? So if you’re planning on getting some bold prints for the season, the zebra print is the way to go!

Back to Posts + Shoes

Thanks to all the Fashion Juice readers who have been patient with the new website transformation. Though I still have some tiny bits to fix, I am now ready to post new entries here in the site. But before anything else, notice that I used the same photo in the About Me part of sidebar. Since a lot of readers have been familiar with that photo, it has somewhat been part of the Fashion Juice branding. So if you’re wondering why I still used the old photo, now you know why… On to my first real post after the revamp…

Last week, I was able to acquire (using “acquire” to lessen the guilt of too many “shoe” purchases the past few weeks) two pairs of shoes. One being a pair of peep toe pumps and one being a “sort of gladiator” sandals. The first is a Fioni Peep Toe Pump in like a blush metallic color. What I like about it is its faux crocodile print leather. The moment I saw it, I fell in love. I actually forgot that I made a post about it a few weeks back. Am I getting too old? haha. I checked my previous post and it was on sale for $12 during that time. But lucky me coz there was one pair left when I went to Payless, in my size!!! So I got it at a marked down price of $10! Yipee! Here it is:
