#2 looks like McQueen, no?
The nautical theme is no doubt kinda played out, especially in resort/cruise collections. However, the good folks @ Vuitton has rendered yet another near flawless collection. Unlike their fall collection, where the actual garments stole the show, this cruise collection belongs to the accessories. I urge you to take a closer @ the shoes, the bags, the jewelry and sunglasses. Enjoy!
More and more designer collections are using rock n' roll details to toughen up a soft look. In the case of bags, an easy way to give your look a sharp edge is adding something embellished with strong, bold hardware likes studs or grommets. Here are some options.

CAUTION: This trend is best in small doses. No need to pair a studded bag with boots and a biker jacket. I'd recommend flirty dresses in soft colors and fabrics as the best complement.
Silky smooth satins and lack luster leathers can get boring. Create interest by adding something with texture. Whether it's silver python by McQueen, or degrade wool from Burberry, you'll see (and feel) the difference.
