They say good things come to those who wait and we truly believe on that ever since we’ve patiently waited for the newest Yves Saint Laurent accessory to complement our everyday and even glamorous outfits. Ladies, the wait is long overdue as the Saint Laurent Signature Monogram Earrings will be hitting the stores this January of the year.

These precious gems are the by-product of a genius mind and we are nonetheless talking about Anthony Vaccarello who will be gracing his first ever Saint Laurent collection. For those who don’t know about Anthony, he is an Italian-Belgian fashion designer who currently holds the title of creative director for Yves Saint Laurent.

Well, what is the fuss about these earrings? Mind you, they are not just ordinary earrings. They are the real deal for you will be wearing the YSL logo on your ears, which will truly capture the eyes and attention of onlookers due to its size.

Labelled to be the signature accessory of Spring/Summer 2017 of Saint Laurent, this monogram earrings can be worn in two ways either separately or by putting them together to recreate the logo and best reveal its beauty and grandeur.

There are several colors available. Which one tickles your fancy?

Loewe S/S17 Lantern Bag In Tan & Gold

Other Brands


With a brand like Loewe, you’ll sometimes need a sense of humour (preferably large), especially when faced with something like Spring-Summer 2017‘s Lantern Bag. It’s definitely not a conventional piece, but it will start conversations, like the one I had going in my own head when I first chanced upon it some weeks back.

The inspiration behind it is decidedly simple, a bag shaped like a lantern that’s almost gourd-like, it starts narrow on the top before it extends in the middle, and then tapering down towards the end. What’s more difficult was the thought process of making something traditionally crafted out of paper (or fabric) which is easy, but swopping that out for leather instead.

In other words, it must have been a huge exercise in applying everything Loewe had in their leather-crafting arsenal and know-how techniques just to figure out how to make it completely in a material that’s pretty tough to work with in the first place. I could only imagine the hours that went into moulding the shape needed to resemble a lantern, before the pieces are stitched together to form that distinctive shape.

Which is exactly what I respect most about the Spanish luxury house, their will to try something that’s not easy and honing their skills, instead of doing yet another simple shape with a sling or two and selling it for bucketloads of money.

And while it will not appeal to everyone (especially with its SGD8690price tag), this is proof that craftsmanship and ingenuity are alive and well at the Spanish luxury house.

Gucci, Yves Saint Laurent Prove Profitable for Kering

Other Brands

French luxury group Kering delivered a rise in 2016 profits and sales on Friday that surpassed expectations, driven by the revival of its biggest brand, Gucci, and strong sales at fashion house Yves Saint Laurent. Gucci, under the leadership of designer Alessandro Michele and Chief Executive Marco Bizzarri since early 2015, has revamped its stores and adopted a vintage "geek chic" look that has proved popular with customers and driven higher sales.

"We recreated the Gucci dream. In 2017 we will make it a booster of sustainable growth," deputy chief executive Jean-Francois Palus told a news conference. "Gucci is cashing in on a brilliant self-help program, which has brought back the brand on the map," said Exane BNP Paribas analyst Luca Solca. Gucci and Yves Saint Laurent now generate 50 percent of their revenue from the tech-savvy generations born after 1980.

Kering, who also owns the Stella McCartney and Puma brands, was upbeat despite what it described as an uncertain business environment. The group said 2017 would see a stabilization of falling sales at underperforming Bottega Veneta, whose exclusive positioning will be strengthened. The strong results provided further evidence of a recovery in the wider luxury goods sector, after rival LVMH posted record revenue and profits for 2016 and Hermes gave a confident outlook for 2017.

Chairman and CEO Francois-Henri Pinault was similarly optimistic, citing positive signals in Hong Kong and improving demand in China and the United States. Recurring operating income for the year rose 14.5 percent to 1.886 billion euros ($2 billion) while group revenue rose 8.1 percent on a comparable basis to 12.385 billion euros. This compared with expectations for 1.83 billion euros of profit and 12.28 billion euros of sales according to a Reuters consensus conducted with Inquiry Financial.

The performance was achieved despite Gucci's decision to stop discounting and some 85 percent of Gucci sales in the quarter were from its new Michele's collection. Yves Saint Laurent, which accounts for over 10 percent of Kering's luxury sales, continued to progress with new designer Anthony Vaccarello at the helm since April. Yves Saint Laurent sales rose 20.5 percent during the quarter while the recurring operating margin of the division jumped over the 20 percent mark for the full year.

Bottega Veneta remained a weak spot with sales down 8.6 percent in the quarter. The brand was hurt by a slowdown in Chinese tourist spending in Japan and Europe. There were, however, signs of an improvement in Chinese tourist spending in western Europe in the last quarter of the year, the group said.

German sportswear firm Puma had strong sales growth and gave a confident forecast for 2017 on Thursday. Pinault said the priority was to improve profitability at Puma, when asked if he had any plans to sell the brand.
