Amilna Estevão stars in Tom Ford’s spring-summer 2017 campaign
Tom Ford photographs his namesake brand’s spring-summer 2017 campaign. Although the designer has captured his advertisements before, this marks the first time in several seasons that the fashion icon has returned behind the lens. This also marks the brand’s first see now, buy now collection which is available for purchase on Ford’s site.
The new advertisements feature models Grace Hartzel, Amilna Estevão, Valentine Rontez and Federico Novello. Captured against a black backdrop, the models wear tailored jackets and sequined dresses in the snaps. With a focus on accessories, large, retro inspired sunglasses and oversized handbags take the spotlight.

This perfect half-moon shape you see here, done in true Chloé style, no less, is the Nile Minaudière, which is essentially jewellery-inspired thanks to a number of gold-toned metallic elements on the bag. The main star, the handle, is actually a bracelet – you can ‘hang’ the bag on your arm through the bracelet-handle which might feel silly at first, but give it time and it will feel most natural. It also means you’re hands-free, which is always a good thing, especially when one’s clutching the smartphone while the other is holding a hot latte. It also comes with a long sling, which means you can also wear it over the the shoulder or across the body.
Don’t be fooled by its small size though; the bag’s big enough for a mini cardholder/wallet and your core essentials. There’s also a back pocket for you to slide cards in. EZ-Link? Check. The perfect combination of form and function, it’s also a unique enough design that ensures you won’t be bored after one season.
For those who want more, the Nile collection extends to Small and regular sizes. And although they lose that perfect half-moon shape, the fuller bag is still classically Chloé (looks a little like the Marcie, no?) that comes anchored with the stunning bracelet loop. Which is the highlight of the Nile after all.
Currently sold out on MATCHESFASHION, you can find the Small Nileon Net-A-Porter where it is retailing for GBP1055. In Singapore, you’ll find the Nile Minaudière in White retailing for SGD2180 at On Pedder Ngee Ann City. The Small Nile in Black will also be available soon and will be priced at SGD2380. In other words, go have a look and see if this little darling is for you.
And if you’re a fan of Chloé, I hear they might be coming back to Singapore with a proper standalone store sometime in May 2017, so watch this space for more updates.Other Brands
Chanel is once again leading the flap bag game in the fashion industry. Released for Chanel Spring Summer 2017 Collection Act 2, this bag is the only thing you’ll be needing to further accessorize your outfits. Take a deep breath and fall in love with this Chanel Transparent Tweed Flap Bag.
It is like the Chanel Classic Flap Bag reinvented. This bag offers transparency, which proves to be handy especially if you want to easily reach for your smartphone or your favorite lipstick. It’s also easy to flaunt the accessories you have in the interior – think about your latest smartphone, your favorite Chanel Wallet or earrings.
Chanel fans out there could easily point out the similarities it has with the Chanel Classic Flap Bag, but the differences are quite discernible as well. If you look closer, this newest Chanel flap bag is in a transparent version and has ‘Tweed detailing’ on the edges for an added style and panache. The CC logo on the other hand is prominently displayed in the middle. We also love the fact that it comes with the same-chained shoulder strap that we’re accustomed to!
So what do you think about this ladies? Is it a yes or a no?
