Alexander McQueen in London Fashion Week 2013 Men Collection

Alexander McQueen, one of the most iconic contemporary fashion brand from the UK. I really admire McQueen’s design despite its astonishing price tag. And Alexander McQueen men collection met with the public, I uploaded the Autumn / Winter 2013 today and the rest of the collection will be uploaded in following days.

Regarding to men collection of Alexander McQueen, there is one thing is eye-catching; double pocket in the right side of the jacket. Or you can call it double deck pocket. In terms of uniqueness and making the collection different, I liked it but is it practical? Some of the designs may look amazing like Aston Martin cars but they may not be that good when you start using them everyday! (Aston Martin does not offer very high level of comfort.) And also, having two pocket in your left side is a great short-cut to lose your things in your jacket :)

Stylish and Luxury Escape on 21 December 2012

21 December 2012, according to Mayan calendar, the world will end. Some people do believe and some people don’t. However there is one thing is obvious, everyone wants to know what will happen on 21 December 2012.

If you believe the world will end up 21 December 2012, I have some luxury and stylish tips for saving your life. I would like to start from the car, you may go for Mercedes G-Class, Toyota Land Cruiser, Range Roverand Nissan Patrol. All of these SUVs are the best of the best on off road and any type of adverse terrain.

However, I need to pick one! And I am going for Toyota Land Cruiser. Land Cruiser is one of the toughest SUV on market, it is preferred by governments, diplomats, militaries, explorers. Land Cruiser does look quite but it may not offer the same level of Range Rover luxury. But, keep in mind our main aim is to survive! So, Land Cruiser will not break down, it is capable of going over any type of obstacle and Land Cruiser has its own coolness! Land Cruiser is rare, tough and cool. And Toyota Land Cruiser is the only SUV, which is gloves friendly. All the interior is designed to be operated by gloves!

Toyota Land Cruiser V8 is powered by 4.5-lt turbo diesel engine with 286 PS of power and 650 Nm of torque with 6-speed automatic transmission.

Now what to wear on 21 December 2012! For women: The coat is Mulberry Mongolian goat hair and leather coat. It is made from goat hair and promises to keep you warm with organic materials. You can wear whatever you like inside the Mulberry coat, because it will keep you warm at any condition. The bag is Bottega Veneta Intrecciato leather tote. It is big enough to accommodate many things inside, secured by the zipper. The bag should offer as much space as possible and it should be secured easily.

And for the boots, Alexander McQueen Shearling and leather ankle high heeled boots. They are matching with the Bottege Veneta bag and also the fur matches with Mulberry coat. Alexander McQueen boots offer great traction thanks to its chunky soles. And the last is the gloves, Causse Gantier Shearling gloves will match the coat and keep you warm. The rest of the collection is based on your taste.

For men: The coat Alexander McQueen Double-Breasted Shearling Coat, honestly with this coat you can start living in north pole! The bag, you need on as you will be in case of emergency, Yves Saint LaurentFull-Grain Leather Holdall Bag. This is similar to tote bag but way more masculine. For the boots, I am going to the classic Mark McNairy Timberland Chunky-SoleSuede Boots! They are not that aesthetic but they will do their job. And lastly the gloves, Mulberry Sheepskin Gloves. You can easily drive the Toyota Land Cruiser with these gloves, don’t worry!

Matte Red BMW X M50d with Designer Collection

Matte Red, the colour of passion! And the colour of BMW X5 M50d.. The most powerful diesel X5 ever produced! M50d is powered by a 3-lt tri-turbo diesel engine with 381 HP and 740 Nm of torque. And M50d needs 5.4 seconds to reach 100 km/h (62 mph) with the limited top speed of 250 km/h (155 mph). When you consider the size of the BMW X5, these figures are ground breaking. However, I already wrote about M50d, why again?

This BMW X5 M50d is painted to matte red! Quite unusual to see an SUV in this colour, except it is ordered by fire brigade. And regarding to responses from Instagram and Facebook, I decided to create a story about it and try to make the story interesting for women readers.

As the colour of BMW X5 M50d is quite sexy, so I decided to give you five different dress, shoes and bags that offer the same colour as the X5.

If you are planning to buy this X5, you may easily can afford to buy these collections :) And this BMW X5 is available in BMW Park Lane, London dealer.

Alexander McQueen Dress for £12,415!

Alexander McQueen, the iconic British fashion brand. I always love to write about the McQueen, it is one of the very rare fashion brands that are capable of pricing the collection as expensive as a second hand car.
I did a very comprehensive research on internet to find out the price of Alexander McQueen’s latest collection. And I found it, Embellished silk-chiffon and lace gown dress designed by Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen’s Summer Spring 2012 collection with the price tag of £12,145 (~ $20,000 or ~ €15,000)
I can imagine the thoughts that are going round inside your mind! Who is going to pay this amount of money to Alexander McQueen’s dress and let me answer! Only size 40 is available; 38, 42 and 44 are sold out! If you were planning to buy this dress and you are not in size 40, sorry it too late! But don’t worry, I have a solution for your problem :)
Let’s connect this fashion topic to cars, for this amount of money you can easily buy a second hand Ford Mondeo, BMW 3-Series, Audi A4, Volkswagen Passat, BMW 1-Series, a bit old Range Rover and many more!
And in my opinion, net-a-porter should offer insurance service to dresses like this. I am definitely sure that if someone could pay £12,145 for an Alexander McQueen dress can easily pay the monthly insurance :)
And here is the technical details of Alexander McQueen Embellished silk-chiffon and lace gown.  I am just referencing it, because it is too complicated for me :)
“Raw-edged and plissé silk-chiffon gown is spliced with intricately beaded lace, with both fabrics cascading into a beautiful sheer skirt and train. The high neckline and cutout bodice are hallmarks of this acclaimed collection, so be sure to showcase them with a neat updo” (Net-A-Porter, 2012)

I have habits from taking cars pictures but they are not ideal for taking pictures of models :) 
And this year, the event was sponsored by Infiniti, and there was FX35! I hope to see more car brands involved with fashion event. Please, next time let us know before the event ;)

How to wear a BMW 5 Series ?

Today on Twitter, some people mentioned about the lunatic pricing strategies of fashion brands. With this motivation I did some research on internet, basically on Net-A-Porter website. And I found very interesting things!
Thanks to fashion brands, now you can wear a BMW 528i model on your body. I am not joking, there is a possibility to wear a BMW, thanks to fashion designers finance departments. BMW 528i is a 3-litre petrol engine which produces 258 horse powers with the top speed of 250 kph (155 mph)! This BMW is not an entry level model; it offers leather seats, lots of airbags, brake energy regeneration system, lots of electronic systems, air conditioning, heated seats, central lock and etc. And all these things are only costs £34 455 (€40 490, $55 145).
And let’s talk about the BMW 528i which I made on Net-A-Porter.
The dress; Alexander McQueen Embroidered silk-jacquard cape with a price tag of £28 660 (€33 680, $45 870)
The shoes; Gucci Python ankle boots with a price tag of £1 190 (€1 398, $1 904)
The handbag; Chloé Emma alligator shoulder bag with a price tag of £5 805 (€6 821, $9 290)
And the total is £35 655 (€41 900, $57 066)
As you can see, it is very easy to wear a BMW on your body. You don’t have to be very strong to handle the weight.
I did not add any jewellery or anything else, I did my best to match the colours :)
