John's Phone

With iPhones, Blackberrys, and all the smartphones we have now, it's hard to remember a mobile phone that didn't do anything but allow you to call.

John's Phone is just that. Like their website says: "It's a no-nonsense mobile phone, it doesn't pretend to be anything more. no bullshit, just a phone to call, talk, and hang up."

Can I just say I love the call and end call buttons? Each model looks to have a different design. Aside from the black (Business), white (Snow), and pink (Sweet) pictured above, it also comes in gold (Bar), brown (Tree), and green (Grass). The back of the phone also has a flap containing an address book and a pen. Don't know about the lack of a screen though, it helps that you can double check the numbers dialed before you actually press call.

Retails €79.95 to €99.95 depending on the model. The phone is designed by John Doe Amsterdam and manufactured in China.

While I don't know if I can make do without the entertainment my iPhone provides (it's very useful when you're stuck in traffic or in a long commute), design-wise it's a pretty cool phone.

Sweatshirt Satchel

How adorable is this? It's the sweatshirt version of the Mulberry Alexa. Cute.

Found this bag at a Portuguese site, The bag is called "Bolsa de Moletom Cinza" (R$179) which loosely translated means "bag gray sweatshirt". And like the name says, it is made out of sweatshirt material with gold hardware and a floral print interior.

It's not the real Alexa but it's so darn pretty. It would be such a treat carrying this around. I probably won't stop running my hands all over. Might be a headache to keep clean though.

It's currently sold out on the site and can't really figure out if they deliver internationally.

Essex Scout by Kate Spade

Kate Spade SS2011 Ad

I was reading Bagaholicboy's blog when I came across this image on his Spring-Summer 2011 Kate Spade Ad Campaign post. At first glance I thought they were using bags from The Cambridge Satchel Company for their ad. But then I thought, Kate Spade does bags so why would they use another brand in their campaign?

Reading through the post more -- those bags are actually Kate Spade bags called Essex Scout. Here's a close up of the smaller version:

You have to admit, it may not look exactly the same but likely inspired by CSC's Satchel?

Longchamp Planètes

Longchamp Planètes, 12" version in black and clay (USD168)

Longchamp's more "famous" line, the Le Pliage is a love-it or hate-it kind of bag. Some of my friends love it while some find it too "shopping-bag" looking. I am definitely for the former. 

I personally love it's simplicity and the fact that it is so lightweight and storable. The weight factor is really the plus for me. With the amount of stuff I lug around all day, I need a bag that doesn't add on more weight to the already shoulder-breaking pounds my stuff totals to. Plus it's weatherproof (... I think), I don't worry if it gets rained on because it dries up quickly and doesn't leave a mark.

Anyway, the Le Pliage's signature look is the brown flap and straps. The Planètes by Longchamp series seems to be a step up. It has the same structure as the Le Pliage but it gives you a tone on tone design -- same color for the body, flap, and straps. 

The Planètes line uses a thicker coated canvas so unlike the Le Pliage, it is not foldable. But, like the Le Pliage, it has 1 main compartment with zipper opening and 1 small pocket on front in the interior.

I fell in love with the all black Planètes when I saw it at a Duty Free shop. And I now regret not buying it because I can't find it any store in the city (buying online is really a last option).

Yes, a Oui Ring by Christin Dior

Oui Ring by Christian Dior in gold and silver

So cute. This seems to be from an old collection (3 or so years ago?) so not sure if it's still available anywhere. Must peruse the Dior site soon.
