Values. Oftentimes, we are are being spoon-feed by massive fashion PR and campaigns that we forgot to look into the core values of companies that we serve our readers. I personally re-examined my motive for joining last night's Vogue Fashion's Night Out. If you live in one of the fashion capitals of the world like Milan, fashion can sometimes become so commercial. Having said that, I have looked into my heart and realized that I have to take responsibility on the information I disseminate amongst you and support only the brands that are dear to me and conduct in a manner that support their local community, as well. When I learned that Coccinelle custom-made a saffiano leather luggage tag for the event and part of the proceeds will be donated to redevelop and open a sports field in Quarto Oggiaro, I know I'll like to help on my little way. I have seen that youth center because I once live in that neighborhood. Last year, they also crafted a leather bracelet for the victims of the earthquake in the region of Emiglia Romagna. The tags come in different colors and priced at 25€, if you want to support this program you can still get one for yourself on your nearest Coccinelle store. On the other hand, you have seen me on instagram @themilanomode (make sure to follow me there to get some inside coverage of Milan Fashion Week) kissing the new "IT" bag of autumn/winter collection. My new favorites are the one's you can see below on the collage, the python-effect leather mini bags in black and brown. The snake-effect gives an exotic look and yet very neat and personal. Of course, this will teach you to edit the important things you want to put inside. But don't be trick as it seem rather small but you have two-closed compartments to secure your wallet, keys, ID's and phone and an open room for easy grab on marshmallows and caramels. I am sensing that this is gonna be one of their iconic bags as the brand describe it as "timeless, versatile and indispensable," just like the very person we wanted to be!
