Perforated is the new black

Everywhere you look, there are perforated accessories. Designers are punching holes all over their bags this season, and the results are gorgeous.

I wasn't quite sure if I like Louis Vuitton's line of perforated Monogram Canvas at first, but certain pieces are really quite fun. Pockets of color peek through and add a rather alluring element to the bag. The cute but useless lock on the side of the pochette is just enough hardware to justify the price tag.

Marc Jacobs' Perforated Leather Brigitte has already been seen toted all over town by bag diva Jessica Simpson. I just love this bag, it's so elegant and the shape is a classic. Obviously, Marc borrowed freely from the LV Speedy here, but since it's so very lovely, he gets a pass on this one.

The Perforated Suede Flap Bag and Thong Sandal make yet another unbeatable duo from the great Jimmy Choo. The shape of this bag is instantly recognizable but the radiating diamond pattern with the metallic gold underlay is a fresh new take. This combo is just delicious, and underscores my belief that you can't go wrong with the Choo.

Bottega Veneta joins the party with this Perforated Leather Hobo. Tiny pinholes give a subtle new texture to the trademark woven leather, and the ruffled trim is a playful and unexpected touch.

My absolute favorite of the perforated purse parade would have to be the New Boogie Calfskin Bag from Celine. I love the refined femininity of it. It's an iconic shape updated with a delicate swirl pattern, it's simply stunning and perfect for spring.

    I love the Jacobs bag but the Celine bag is so perforated it looks like it might fall to pieces.

    Have you ever realized that when you buy readymade suits you get a choice of only a few colors & styles, also finding the perfect fit are quite difficult? Wouldn’t it be better to choose from over 2000 different British & Italian fabrics and get a tailor made suit at a similar price that you pay for readymade suits?

    We are a company based in Hong Kong and have been providing custom made suits & shirts since 1997. With representatives in major cities around the globe we can arrange to show you the fabric samples and take your measurements, or you can also place your orders online with the help of our measuring guide. There are over 2000 fabrics to choose from along with all the latest styles.

    All our suits and shirts are produced by highly skilled Shanghainese tailors in Hong Kong and delivered in about 4 weeks, express delivery can be made in 2 weeks at a minor extra cost. In case you are not able to find what you are looking for then please let us know your requirement may it be in words or by a photograph and we could arrange it for you.

    We also have an outlet at the Hotel Intercontinental Budapest where you are most welcome to visit us. Though we are not located in streets like Savile Row (London), we have still been able to offer made to measure suits to many VIP’s from around the world.

    Perforated accessories are preferred by many people nowadays. Designers punch many holes in the hand bags to give the bags a different look. When decorated with precious beads they have an awesome look.
