Gabriel*Martel Tocca Di Lusso Collection Launch

Before I left Manila, I was invited to the Gabriel*Martel Tocca Di Lusso Collection Launch at Prive Luxury Club. Normally I tend to shy away from huge affairs because I prefer intimate, mingle-heavy events, but I was willing to support my friends over at ARC and check out Celine Gabriel's newest bag collection.

The elusive collection is a collaboration between Celine Gabriel and Andrea Martel and consists of intricately designed minaudieres, the latest "it" luxury accessory painstakingly handcrafted with natural materials such as eggshells, ostrich leather, stingray and wood. The whole collection is dubbed "Tocca Di Lusso" which is Italian for "touch of luxury".

I'm glad that I was able to hang out and chat with Shen and Jenny as well as get to know some of the new bloggers.
