Gucci Queen Margaret Quilted Leather Backpack

Categories:Other Brands

IMAGE: GUCCI

‘Old meets new’ seems to be the buzzwords of choice over at Gucci now, with more and more new bags that are infused with the old. Take the Queen Margaret for example, which to me is the perfect combination of both (and also my personal favourite as far as the Pre-Fall 2017 collection is concerned).

With the giant bee that’s embellished with crystals and pearls inspired by an archive find from the 70s, along with the addition of Gucci’s most iconic bamboo handles (I still get shivers down my spine whenever I recall my trip to Florence where the craftsman showed me exactly how it was curved and varnished), this variation in the form of the backpack is the best of both worlds as far as form and function are concerned.

Besides using it as a backpack, you can also tote it via its top handle, which satisfies the functional bit. Measuring some 25 cm by 23 cm, it isn’t exactly a tiny bag, so fitting in most of your daily essentials won’t be an issue either. Lined with a suede-like fabric, the bag itself is made up of soft quilted leather, which also means it won’t be overly stiff.

Available in a full black version (shown above) that’s priced at SGD3970and one more in multiple colours (SGD4360), you can check them both out now at Gucci boutiques at ION Orchard, Marina Bay Sands and Paragon.

But if backpacks aren’t your thing, don’t fret. The Queen Margaret also comes in the form of a top handle stunner with a sling (shown above), as well as a smaller sling bag (known as the Broadway) that you can wear across the body.

Hermès Curiosite Leather Bracelet Cuff

Categories:Other Brands

IMAGE: HERMÈS

If you have been saving for the Passant long wallet from Hermès I just covered a couple of days ago, here’s something else for you to lust over. Also by Hermes but I’m thinking it’s something that hasn’t quite hit our shores yet, here’s the Curiosite Leather Bracelet Cuff, a new addition to the French luxury house’s repertoire of leather jewellery.

So what’s so different about this one? Well, to be honest, not much really, save for the addition of the hanging charms that come with each bracelet. One’s a horn, the other, a lantern (is there some hidden meaning here?) that I’m assuming can be removed as and when you like. Made of palladium-plated hardware for the ones in ‘silver’, to permabrass for the ones in ‘gold’, the charms aren’t tiny tiny either; they average about 3.5 cm in length, which is quite substantial to say the least.

Besides Epsom calfskin, you’ll also find the Curiosite in Barenia calfskin, which I’ve placed together side by side for easy comparison. I’m biased towards Epsom (shown right), but for those who prefer their leather cuffs lush and smooth, Barenia (shown left) is the one for you. Now for the prices. They are retailing for USD715 for the ones that come with two charms, and just USD570 for the ones that come with a single charm, which will be the one which comes with the lantern. It also looks to come in only a single size, and once I get any more information, there will be more updates.

THE NEW CHANEL REISSUE 2.55 NUDE BAG IN SOFT LEATHER

Categories:Other Brands

The-New-Line-Of-Chanel-Reissue-2.55-Bag-in-Soft-Leather

It looks like the House of Chanel is going to re-live the glorious days of the famous Chanel Reissue 2.55, a bag personally designed by Coco Chanel herself. It’s the classic flap bag that never goes out of style, talk about creating lasting impression in the fashion world.

History has it that sometime in the 1920’s, Coco was fed up of carrying her handbags in her arms so she decided to design her own handbag that freed up her hands. Finding inspiration on soldiers’ bags, she found an ingenious way to add thin straps and introduced this timeless bag to the public in 1929. The said bag made its triumphant comeback in 1954 and Chanel further updated the said handbag. The finished product is now known as the 2.55 Bag named after the date of its creation, February 1955.

Karl Lagerfeld, the brains behind Chanel reintroduced the 2.55 Flap Bag and later became known as the ‘Reissue’. Apparently, Chanel is going to introduce a new line of bags that require appreciable technical expertise in treating the leather which gradually acquires a patina that gives each bag its unique appeal. Voila! And now you have the Reissue 2.55 bag in soft leather.

Now let’s take a good look at the new Chanel Reissue 2.55 Bag in Soft Leather. At first glance, it looks quite the same with the original bag but looking closer, there’s actually more to see. The new 2.55 bag’s bottom is crafted in red/burgundy color and if you really pay close attention to details, you’ll definitely appreciate the added elegant chain which more looks like a necklace’s chain to us. These are new changes that Chanel lovers would undoubtedly be smitten with.
