JumpFromPaper to Bag…

For those that follow me on Instagram already seen me rockin’ this new bag from Taiwan-based accessory brand JumpFromPaper. Created by designer duo Chay Su and Rika Lin in 2010, the line was based on the concept of playfulness with an attempt to fulfill everyone’s childhood fantasy. The design is a combination of 2D graphics and 3D illusion to create a truly distinct line of quirky bags. The philosophy of the designers, “Why take everything so serious? We are born to enjoy the life!”

When I was introduced to this line and saw the pictures, I had to double take as it was an optical illusion, very trippy. I wasn’t sure how to interpret the cartoon-like bags, I felt like the bags were “keyed’ into the photos, very interesting. When I finally received the bags, I was quite impressed with the quality and how it was constructed. But to this day, it’s still an optical illusion for me. People on the streets had to double take as I was strolling around with my bag, I’m sure they were all thinking if the bag was real or not. Really cute and fun bags.

The collection is also very affordable, prices range from US$39 for a wallet to US$169 for a backpack. You can shop the collection on jumpfrompaper.com, they ship worldwide, or shop at various locations near you.

With European Parliament vote looming, official urges bag restriction

Janez Potocnik, Europe’s commissioner for the environment, told the European Parliament April 15 that plastic shopping bags are a “highly visible environmental problem” and that their over-consumption and littering need to be addressed.

“Plastic carrier bags easily escape waste management schemes and accumulate in our environment, especially in the form of marine litter. For example, plastic bags accounted for 73 percent [of waste] along the Tuscany coast,” he told members of the European Parliament.

He said that the “huge and growing consumption rates of plastic bags – one hundred billion plastic bags are used in the European Union alone – also demonstrates a squandering of resources”. Plastic bags are a symbol of our throw-away society and unsustainable lifestyles, Potocnik added.

“We use them for a few minutes but their legacy last for hundreds of years.”

The European Parliament is to vote April 17 on a proposal calling for member states to reduce the use of shopping bags by 50 percent by 2017 and 80 percent by 2019.

Public opinion is strongly behind limiting their use but public behavior needs “a nudge”, Potocnik said. This is the clear lesson from member states, such as Ireland, which have shown that simple measures lead to big changes.

“The time has come for member states to take action across the European Union, building on the successful initiatives already in place.”

This is why environment ministers have called on the Commission to make plans and it is why in November last year it tabled a proposal, Potocnik explained. “It contains two main elements – first, it requires member states to adopt measure to reduce the consumption of lightweight plastic carrier bags. And second, the proposal provides member states with a range of instruments, such as charges.

“The parliament’s draft proposals clearly show that we share the same objective – limiting the consumption and littering of plastic carrier bags.”

Consumers are increasingly rich, if everyone can buy, I Chanel not valuable. (the above text from the catwalk net)

Fast fashion comments:

The price is the current situation the luxury of inevitable and necessary operation method. And, with the development of the world economy perspective, Chanel and other luxury prices trend still will last for a long time. Maybe you will ask: whether or not only up to the value and appreciation of luxury?

It seems, for the Chanel and each big luxury brands prices continued to rise, we cannot expect it to stop. Love of luxury, the only thing we can do is waiting for the right time to quickly. At the same time, said to myself: if you love a thing, why care about his price.

Nine strokes teach you easily distinguish LV Speedy true and false

 

Methods 1, veteran from the smell of

In fact, all the LV products have a unique skin, if you have a study on the LV, you in fact will know this handbag is genuine or fake. The taste is like the taste you enter the LV store will smell, is in a very special smell. But only to the sense of smell to analysis of the true and false, and not everyone can do, must have a certain skill.

Methods 2, see tread depth

Before many people think that as long as the resolution LV a bag bag pattern right will know true and false, but actually this kind of practice has been out, now those fake LV bags on the pattern has been done and really not much difference between, so this method has already can’t distinguish true false evidence. A comparison can see. If your eyesight is strong enough, you will find the true LV Monogram pattern is mixed color that Coffee, while the fake LV is completely full Coffee color.

Methods 3, check the car line

In addition, the car line is also an important clue. True LV car line is curved elastic very good fiber to do, so careful friends can find car line shows the willow bar, and is that kind of coarse grain; and the pseudo LV car line is an ordinary car line, so there will be no thick willow stripe.

Methods 4, check the internal cloth

Methods 5, on card number

When it comes to bag inside, with a piece of skin will be small bag in bag, top write a really unique number LV bags, fake LV won’t have, and location will be wrong. In addition, the true LV leather including the small skin always is the natural texture, but with a fake LV skin will not natural.

The bag outside is piece of paper, wrote “Louls Vultton Parls made in France”, should pay attention to is the true LV of the printed word quite shallow, but each word standard average. Instead of fake row spacing did not really standard average. Words per print not neat (such as LV and U word to be a misprint), this point is very important.

Xu skin part, even the metal buttons are true and false points. The true LV buckle key metal presents bronze, dull color, while the false will appear bright gold, reflecting a strong degree.

Methods 8, rivets have texture

There are really LV includes outside pan must be printed with “Louls Vultton” gold to write, if the pan is not, or seal is short, do not have to look at it is fake. In addition the pots really LV zip fastener nails will have a certain feeling of thickness.

Methods 9, list the handbag size

Finally, a secret, a lot of people may not know, on the back of the bag outside is printed “Louis Vuitton Paris made in France” leather Zi, so LV will be printed on the bag size, for example, the 30 inch bags. The skin of the back can see “30″ message, if it is fake words, will certainly not.
