The Kaiser's playful side in Belle Brummell.

Kaiser Karl, sent out these eye raising and charmingly playful and youthful bags on the Chanel Fall 09 runway show tagged as Chanel Belle Brummell. I wonder if these bags will find their way into the stores, and if we'll see any home grown fashionistas carrying them. Perhaps it would be well advised to carry all your confidence with this bag.

Ditto and Bowles

Please view this video of the Gossip's performance at the Fendi party recently at

This is what Mr. Hamish Bowles had to say: "Having brought the house down with the spectacular 'Standing in the Way of Control,' Beth decided to execute a celebratory stage dive, a move that I can only describe as ill advised with a mosh pit comprising various supermodels and sundry fashionistos in aching want of a square repas[t]. In fact, as far as I could determine, there was a parting of the waves as the svelte and deeply panicked hordes flung themselves out of the oncoming path of the potential weapon of mass destruction that is la Ditto, and there was something closely resembling a resounding thud in place of the expected slap of flesh on expectantly upraised palms."

I just couldn't match Bowles' witty repartee. Little wonder that he won UK Vogue's talent contest back in the day.

Balenciaga shell back coat.

I can't decide if i love or hate the shell back / egg silhouette coat for men that Balenciaga did for fall 08. On the one hand its so nice to see boundaries being pushed, the freshness, the originality is so seductive; but on the other hand I just don't know if you average Joe can make this work. But then a Balenciaga coat is not for the average Joe. Can even the most fashion forward waify androgynous slimane-esq model boy thing pull this off?
