The name neo-classical describes anything inspired the art of Greece and Rome in ancient times. With the English trend towards lighter, more sophisticated jewelry, neo-classical soon overwhelmed Rococo. Within the broader neoclassical period, two separate sub-styles emerged. The first was the Adam Style, as created by architect and interior designer Robert Adam. The style went back to the symmetry of the earlier Baroque period, but with much more subtlety. Motifs in the Adam Style included pillars, flower wreaths, bows, ribbons, hearts, snakes, rams heads and other ancient symbols.
The other neoclassical style popular in both England was Regency. Regency style closely mirrored that of the Empire style in France. Although classical symbols were still popular, Greek motifs had largely lost out in favor of ancient Egypt. Compared to most neoclassical jewelry, Regency pieces were far more decorative and colorful. Not quite back to the styles of Baroque, but certainly bolder than Rococo. In order to separate Adam and Regency styles, Regency is often termed as late-Georgian. The name neoclassical is primarily a description for the Adam Style.
When choosing necklaces for necklines, you need to be conscious of the specific neckline. Different necklaces look good with different necklines. Inversely, some necklaces don’t complement certain necklines.
Be mindful of the pendant when deciding what necklace to wear. The pendant’s shape can make or break your look. The length and width of the necklace also draws people’s attention to a certain point.
V-neck necklines draw people’s attention to your chest or cleavage. Your necklace should do the same.The pendant of a V-neck necklace should be angular and match the shape of a V. The wider the V, the bigger the pendant you should choose.Choosing a rounded necklace with a V-neck makes your appearance look mismatched. With a plunging neckline, your necklace length should be proportionate to your chest.Stay away from necklaces that are too long. They will pull the attention away from your neckline.
Chokers pair best with strapless necklines. Choker necklaces draw the attention to your neck and away from your stomach.Go for shorter pendants. They’ll keep the attention on your necklines and collar bones. Shorter pendants can also accentuate your neck.If you want to de-emphasize your neck, wear a princess necklace. This will keep eyes drawn towards your shoulders.
Sweetheart necklaces emphasize your neck, shoulders, and sometimes cleavage. Your necklace should contribute to this effect.Choose a necklace with a wider pendant to balance the open space in your neckline, but not too big. Going for curves and soft angles instead of rigid, hard angles will balance the sharp angles of this neckline.Make sure your necklace length isn’t too long. Chokers and princess necklaces will keep the attention on your chest.
Shorter necklaces work well with crew necklines. A choker or princess-length necklace will emphasize your neck.Bib-style necklaces also complement crew necklines.Select a more curved pendant for crew necklines instead of angular ones. Rounder pendants go well with this curved neckline.

Today, Prada offers men’s and women’s leather goods, clothing, sunglasses, fragrances, and footwear, combining contemporary, cutting-edge sophistication with one-of-a-kind, artisanal flair. Each season, ardent fans, celebrities, and magazine editors can’t wait to see what Prada will unveil on the runways, but you don’t have to wait at all: Neiman Marcus has up-to-the-minute Prada collections you can enjoy any time of the year.
Prada changes things up so much from one season to the next on its runways that I didn’t have any terribly specific for predictions for what kinds of bags would grace the brand’s Spring 2018 runway, and if I had tried to guess, I would have undoubtedly come up far short of what Prada ultimately put together: a fun, aggressive, but not-too-serious slew of bags with punk details, inspired by the gritty world of comic book heroines.
The bags with illustrations (which will be immediate street style fodder, it goes without saying) are cheeky and very much in line with Prada’s occasional tradition of using artwork on its bags—most notably the fairy bags of the mid-2000s—but that’s not all the runway offered. There were also excellent, simple leather bags that the brand hasn’t shown before, as well as super-functional nylon pieces accented with studs and straps, bridging the gap between the brand’s longstanding lines and the seasonal bags. They looked like the kind of pieces the women in the illustrations might carry on their quests to stylishly save the world.Check out all the pieces from the runway below.
The duo’s comments angered some very high-profile people, including Sir Elton John and his partner David Furnish, as well as NBC’s Today Show host Al Roker, who both leaped to the defence of non-traditional families on social media.
Admittedly, this is an odd stance for to take. While the pair (who were themselves a romantic couple for over 20 years before splitting but remaining business partners) may have their reasons for wanting to promote what they perceive as the institution of a traditional family unit, in light of their comments, their Fall/Winter 2015-2016 shoe seems to take on an altogether different patina; one that is more socio-political commentary than homage. Some have even argued that if the duos believe that the family unit is indeed “not a fad”, it may perhaps not have any place being on the runway at all, making their campaign exploitative at best.
As with many things in and around the fashion world, the true test will likely be whether or not customers are willing to embrace Dolce and Gabbana’s campaign. There is perhaps no better marker of how a collection is received than the popularity of its associated handbag line. The LaMamma handbag will almost certainly divide the crowd; its sophisticated shape and elegantly finished hardware are in stark contrast to the embroidered, childlike embellishments on the bag. With a price tag of nearly $3,000, we’re predicting that it’s probably going to be a tough sell. After all, the women (many of whom are mothers) that make up their core demographic are nothing if not pragmatic.
Dolce and Gabbana appeared to present a collection that was all about celebrating traditional Italian motherhood. Pregnant models walked the runway, while others carried babies and toddlers in their arms. It all seemed very heart-warming; a celebration of the circle of life with Dolce and Gabbana’s signature heavy-handed Italian spin. But that was before the interviews.
When asked about the collection in the interviews that followed, the pair responded surprisingly; they came out quite strongly against same sex marriage and non-traditional families. Dolce stated that “you are born to a mother and a father — or at least that’s how it should be. I call children of chemistry synthetic children.”
Just to recap, we are spending two posts to talk about some of the celebs and their designer handbags from fashion week in both New York and Milan. I am completely buried in photographs of celebs and their designer handbags, I don’t know how I’m going to get through them all! Good thing looking at designer bags (like Hermes handbags) is something that I love to do, so it really doesn’t feel like work to me at all. In the last post we talked about Prada bags being carried by celebrities spotted at the New York and Milan fashion week, and today we will be doing something similar, but talking about Hermes bags instead! I get so excited when I write a post which features Hermes designer handbags; I really hope you have just as much fun reading them!
Check out Cara Delevigne (above) who is carrying a Mulberry bag which might sound familiar! Mulberry handbags like to be named after fab people, and she is actually carrying her namesake bag, the Mulberry Cara Delevigne! (um, where’s mine, Mulberry!?) Next we have Louise Redknapp carrying one of my favourite Hermes bags, the Hermes Medor clutch (below) and we can see Kelly Osborne with her self-embellished Hermes Birkin bag. I don’t think I would do this to any of my Hermes handbags, but I guess Kelly doesn’t really need to watch her spending.
You know I like to end my ‘weeks of’ with a bang, and this series is no different. We were talking about art and designer bags all week, but you can’t have designer handbag art without Hermes handbags. Many artists have taken it upon themselves to use this designer bag in their art – some like to paint the bags themselves and some like to destroy them.
The juxtaposition of these masters paintings on a colorful backdrop somehow downgrades the collection in a way that makes it look like something purchased from a flea market vendor, and the addition of rhinestones, brand logos, and embellished lettering seemingly underscores this lowbrow vibe. While we wouldn’t go so far as to call it offensive, it seems to be equidistantly removed from both elegance and edginess, something that Louis Vuitton CEO Michael Burke has publicly conceded, albeit he has a slightly different take.
“I think we’re going to get some pushback. People are going to be upset about the sacred entering the realm of the profane. But we like to do things that can be perceived as politically incorrect. If we are getting flak, we think we are doing something right.”
Ever since Louis Ghesquiere took the helm at Louis Vuitton, the brand has flourished in a way that always happens in the fashion world when a fresh set of eyes breathes new life into a storied institution. But even the most visionary of re-brandings are not immune to the occasional stumble as they reclaim their cool-kid status. If the buzz in the fashion press is to be believed, the latest collaboration between Louis Vuitton and artist, Jeff Koons, is one such stumble.
The idea is not exactly revolutionary; Koons has used an edit of masters paintings as a backdrop for this collection of bags, and added what can only be described as embellished “captions”. The end result? Less than spectacular.
Givenchy was the ultimate celebrity fashion house. Among Givenchy clients were Grace Kelly, Jacqueline Kennedy Onasis and Duchess of Windsor.
Givenchy history is simple. This designer was born in France in an Italian descent family who was later ennobled. He studied in Ecole des Beaux Arts and in 1952 opened his own fashion house. He was a very progressive designer for his time, compared to Christian Dior. The muse of this designer was Audrey Hepburn for whom he designed whole wardrobe worn in movies, as well as a perfume. Audrey Hepburn became a symbol of the brand. Right now the famous fashion house is owned by Louis Vuitton Moet Hennessy. This brand has maintained its luxury status since the beginning and the luxus and chic accessories from this label are no exception. All of the handbags totes under the brand’s name are perfect in their shapes, have been made of best materials and using best quality hardware, they are very comfortable in their design and all of them could be called fashion handbags.
From recent collections the Antigona bag is offered in really captivating shades – deep burgundy and orange – the Antigona bag could become the next big thing. Also the Eden shoulder bag in attractive color palette looks very promising.
The House of Givenchy is a luxury French brand which features a collection of Haute Couture clothes and accessories, including a variety of luxury handbags.
Unlike many fashion houses Givenchy does not have just one iconic handbag for which it is most well known, instead the company as a whole is known for its style and modern vibe with a feminine attitude. Just look through the pages of our website and you will find numerous replica bags copied from Givenchy in all styles and all colours.
