I've moved on...
...to a different domain. Why, what were you thinking? The truth is, I just woke up one day and decided it's time for a change—a metamorphosis, if you will; or, in layman's terms, if Britney can shave her head, then maybe so can I? Nevertheless, it's been a rather handsome 10 years of talking to you, and thank you for putting up with all my moodswings and terrible dad jokes. Fear not! The hormonal imbalance and jokes are more terrible on CUBICLE, see you there.

Ask me ten years ago if I’d like a bag version of that bus handle I’d gotten to know so well – the circular, plastic reminder that once again I am on the late bus to school and we are one violent swerve away from swinging smack right into someone’s wet armpit. (My glasses would have permanent stains from arm-pubes during exam weeks) If you’d asked me then, I’d have raised an eyebrow, nay, even laughed, at the prospect of a bag that looks like a bus handle ring.

Seemingly, it takes exactly one decade for body cells to turn over, metabolism to slacken, for awkward ideas to become… well frankly, awesome. While my grip on the ring of SAVAS clutch take a familiar, ferocious grasp that one 18-year-old’s good morning relied on, it’s a heck of a stunner – a statement, even. Goes with practically everything, but best seen with puffy, foamy layers and monochrome co-ords as worn in this digitorial for Farfetch.

  15. Who would’ve thought that we would look to bus handles for inspiration – I suppose it was inevitable but either way I am loving it. The monochrome with the metallic accents makes it a sure favourite for fall – plus it doesn’t come with arm pit stained glasses!


  16. YESS such an inspiration, I love these photos and the colors (that red is gorgeous).

  17. Love that bag, amazing presentation.


  18. Dude, these photos are CRAZY beautiful. I love the styling. It’s all a bit exaggerated and undone but still looks perfectly put together. I’m in love.


  19. Aside from the bag, that I have been wanting despite the weirdness of the circular handle….I’m dying over those Bally shoes. Now that you brought up the bus thing I don’t think I can get it out of my head haha.


  20. Love that shot of you on the stoop! And all of the other ones, for that matter.

  21. Killer! As always!! Love it, Shini! Great job!

  29. Running short of finding something smart to say, you’ve outrun everyone Shini and having had a look at the Lavender fields video I am just wondering, What Would You Do IF You Had A Bigger Budget from your advertisers?!!!?!!!

    Keep at it Parkowska! You’re the Leader, ring or no ring.

  30. You are very funny in your description of the bus handle. You made me think of going on a bus and hold myself on to the handle. However, I think the purse is elegant and I would definitely wear it! Thank you

  31. Veryyyyyyyyy coool clutch!! and love all the expressions in your photos.
