Vogue November

At the end of the past weekend I sat down at a coffee shop and got my hands on the November Taiwan edition of Vogue.
The monthly featured Patty Hou - the co-host of Sunday evening's Golden Horse Awards in Keelung. She's not really my type, but I just mention her in passing, because she's like the person of the month in the magazine.
Far more interesting is a review of trends for the winter, which today has finally arrived in Taiwan, with rain, wind and below 20 degrees Celsius temperatures. Vogue mentions ruffles, fur, and fruit designs on necklaces as the first trends. More important, the animal of the winter is the crocodile, as in crocodile handbags, shoes and boots, and even a Dior coat in crocodile leather. Looking beyond winter to the early spring, jeans with the Christian Dior logo are the hottest topic, according to Vogue. Maybe that has already arrived, because near the Idee department stores today, I saw a lady carrying a Dior logo denim handbag.
Vogue also features a garden look - for clothing that is, dresses and skirts with colorful checks, floral and tree designs, and a British country flavor.
And if you like shoes, well, the November Vogue is for you: it has pages and pages of all kinds of shoes, high-heel, flat, with brand logos, boots, any kind you can think of. 365 fetish, they call this series of pictures showing shoes.
