I am in love with the simplicity of this wallet. It is uncluttered, elegant and beautifully made in a smooth leather. The wallet was made by Lefott but unfortunately I wasn't able to find a place to see it in person so I will have to stare at the picture and appreciate it for what it is, a beautiful wallet.
Here is a brand that know a thing or two about luxury leather bags and refreshing new ideas. Every piece in the Entermodal collection is unique, for example the duffel bag above is made out of one big piece of leather. The wallet above has a fun opening feature, the wallets have a cover that rotates from the bottom corner and the allow the wallet to fold out. Every piece made at Entermodal is made with really rich leathers and in very elegant colors. To see more click here.

A new year calls for a new day planner from Smythson! This one is one of the most luxurious brands out there. Smythson was started in 1887 by Frank Smythson. The company started in London and now has flagship stores all over the world.
Its long standing reputation for high quality goods is still what keeps them on the top of the list. They also make stationery, travel goods, handbags and other small leather accessories.
I browsed throughout their website for hours and their design, colors, and customizing options made things even harder. This purple collection is my favorite, the blue pages go so well with the leather!. Visit their website here.

Initial, Causeway Bay
Initial is a wonderful shop located throughout Hong Kong, I usually visit the store off the Causeway Bay station. They carry a wonderful variety of clothing for men and women that feel thoughtful and luxurious. My favorite part of their offering is their leather shoes and bags, they carry simple and very wearable desgins made with super soft and carefully finished leathers.
All of their stores focus on the details when it comes to creating a peaceful and cozy environment.
Dominoes Set By Hermes
Second stop, the Hermes store in Hong Kong. While I was there this small dominoes set caught my eye. The pieces are engraved thin wood chips and it comes in a beautiful leather case. The case is about the size of a business card. A good travel size game but it comes with a $365 price tag, it's a little too much for my taste.
Back From China And Ready For Hong Kong.
I was able to spend Saturday afternoon and the whole day Sunday wondering around in the wonderful Hong Kong. I will take you through my favorite shops and some of other interesteing things I saw on my journey.
First stop was Lane Crawford at the IFC Mall. This mall is enourmous, there are hundreds of stores. Lane Crawford in IFC contains the largest assortment of designers brands in greater China, the store is modern but yet welcoming and cozy. This is a great place for inspiration and to see all of the high end designers' work in one place. Lane Crawford in IFC has the best collection of women's shoes I have ever seen. If you are in Hong Kong, I recomend you make a stop here, take the subway to Central and follow the signs.
Standard Bags By Slow And Steady
Slow and Stead Wins The Race created a collection of handbags inspired on the already existing plastic and paper bags. I thinks this is a great idea, the designs are proven to be functional so why not take them a step further and make them in leather and suede? I am a fan of the Kraft Carrier (top two) because of it's construction and choice of materials. The grey color uses leather and the brown color uses suede. There is also the Bodega bag made in Black Leather and the Drawstring sac made in Suede.
Slow And Steady Wins the Race also offers men's and women's apparel, accessories and other handbags. Visit their website for more on this great brand.
J.Crew X Dell’Ga Leather Suitcase
This is a beautiful piece of luggage from J. Crew. The design lines are reminicent of those from the 60's; it has a vintage flare with the luxury of white supple Italian leather and silk lining. The luggage collection is made in Italy as part of a collaboration project with Dell'Ga. The collection also includes a Valise and a Garment bag. The whole collection can be bought online at J. Crew
Denna & Ozzy Split Tote
I saw this bag on the Urban Outfitter website and the color blocking caught my eye. The bag is made of canvas and synthetic leather but I like the hardware, size and use of color. This is an affordable way to make a statement with a handbag. You don't need a fortune to have style.
Slow & Steady Wins The Race
This is a gorgeous leather bag I found at Opening Ceremony. If you look closely at the bag you can notice that it has 4 handles which gives a unique feature to a classic bag. This birkin bag is only available in caramel and you can buy it by clicking here.
This is simply beautiful and if it wasn't $1,150 I would have bought it already.
Gauntlet Gloves By Judi Rosen
Even though summer has arrived I wanted to show you these stylish gloves. They are made out of super soft leather and have a folded cuff.
They come in a number of colors and also in two tone combinations too. This gloves are made by Judi Rosen in New York and they have so much personality that I can't wait for the cold weather to start so that I can wear them.
