Website & Product Review: American Swan

Website & Product Review: American Swan

Hi Everyone!

As you know, I love styling the western wear and sometimes doing a fusion with Indo western outfits. So, for selecting outfits for the shoots and going through various different stores is a hell of a task for me. At that time, online stores always come to a rescue.

I was going through various different online stores when I found the website for American Swan (Website:http://www.americanswan.com/). Going through their website what strike me, was the quality of products they have both for men and women and that too in a very affordable price. So, I decided to write a review about their products and website.

About the Brand:

American Swan is an International online Fashion & Lifestyle brand that combines Urban American Lifestyle with a quintessential Youth-oriented Fashion: its Spirit, Energy and Authenticity. The brand offers an invigorating twist to the genre of preppy fashion, offering an authentic casual wear range to the youth who seek occasion-led collections.

Product Review:: Leather Handbag Brand – PHIVE RIVERS

Product Review:: Leather Handbag Brand – PHIVE RIVERS

Hi Everyone,

Today’s post is about a new brand called the ‘PHIVE RIVERS’. It is a celebrated Italian brand offering a wide variety of handbags for women and men. The brand uses high quality imported leather for their product and it is their aim to stay abreast with the latest trends and providing products that create a style statement.

Phive Rivers understand the need of today’s generation and lays its emphasis on creating handbags which go well with every season and occasion. The designer for Phive Rivers is ‘Valentino Buffoni’ who believes an inner soul must enliven every object and continues to develop a lifelong passion for luxury leather handbags and accessories. His designs are ductile and diversified, plain and simple shapes combine with modern and assertive forms to create luxurious handcrafted leather accessories. The brand quotes that the designs of their luxury handbags are a mirror image of Valentino’s style and hence draws strong inspiration from his work.

What I like about Phive Rivers is that these handbags are mancrafted. Every piece is stitched by hand, in their own distinct style, with a delicate finesse that moulds separate pieces of leather together as one, giving that unique look. Also the best part is that it is only available online so you can go through the wide variety of handbags offered by them in varied alluring colors and exquisite designs.

Also the exciting thing about Phive Rivers is that they make handbags on order which means you can get your handbag made especially for you hand crafted by their five artisans to achieve the perfection that machine cannot. And since the handbags are custom made, it takes around 5-6 days for the product to get delivered. Also the pricing of their products ranges from 6000-30000 depending upon the leather.

I also got the chance to meet Mr. Mohit Gill (Marketing Head, Phive Rivers Retail India) who enlightened me further about the vision and policies of the brand. One thing that caught my attention was the willingness of the brand to not only provide customers with high-end products but also with impeccable after sales service which they take quite seriously. So if you have any problem with any of their product, they will return it. Also they are planning on bringing on some exclusive range from time to time, information regarding which will be uploaded on their website .i.e, http://www.phiverivers.com

You can see waist length cardigans, oversized cardigans and boyfriend cardigans available in many stores. If you want to wear a waist length cardigan, then wear it with high waist skirts, flare dresses or any body-fit dress. They look perfect for work wear. If you want to pair an oversized cardigan, wear it with your shorts or the skinniest pair of leggings or jeans. Pair them with boots to give it a very edgy look.

When pairing a cardigan always remember, if you are pairing a body fit cardigan, then you should pair it with something loose like flare skirts or maxi dresses. If you are pairing an oversized or long cardigan wear it with the fitted clothes you have to give your figure the correct balance.

It is not always that you will look like a mom if you will wear a cardigan. If you pair it right and according to your body type, you can definitely look great.
