Gucci Lilith Top Handle Bag

Categories:Other Brands

If you asked me what bag at Gucci today still epitomises the past and the present as far as their handbags are concerned, this would be it. Those familiar with the Italian luxury house’s bags of yore will find the bamboo handle familiar, a Gucci signature that’s still keep alive and well under the auspices of sitting Creative Director Alessandro Michele.

Having seen the process for myself when I visited their bag production facility in the outskirts of Florence some years back, I can tell you this much. As simple as it might look, each bamboo handle still has to go through hours and hours of skilled craftsmanship, a single artisan crouched over an open flame as he exposes the bamboo rods to heat, slowly bending them bit by bit before it takes its eventual curved shape. Layers upon layers of a special varnish are also applied to give it that shine, as well as to keep it in an almost pristine condition for years to come.

From the handle down, however, and it’s a different story. Obviously inspired by vintage references, Michele draws upon a new icon of house, the snake, and uses it to great effect on the Lilith. Named so because it’s believed to be the name of Adam’s first wife in midrashic literature (you know how the story ends) with the snake tempting both of them.

But beyond the name, the bag is also a beautiful example of vintage-chic that’s big at Gucci these days, the bag sold with two slings, one of leather, the other in grosgrain. The perfect bag for ladies-who-lunch, it also comes in at least 2 sizes at the moment, a Small (26 cm by 24 cm) and a Medium (33 cm by 22 cm) with both sizes now available at Gucci boutiques in Singapore, including the newly-opened flagship at ION Orchard.

HERMES OXER TOP HANDLE

Categories:Other Brands

Hermes-Oxer-Bag-3

Meet the Hermes Oxer Top Handle Bag, inspired by the Hermes Horse Saddle if you want the details. Though we do not know the destination of this bag; ‘will it be an iconic or not?’, but we can say with confident that ‘almost everything Hermes touches turn to gold’, meaning – Hermes got a lot of famous bags in stock, and most of them are wanted and hunted.

So it wouldn’t be a surprise when the Hermes Oxer Top Handle Bag becomes the next big thing. Crafted from quality beyond our expectation, it’s a grown-up bag with generous space. And the shape is quite unique, which how it separates itself from the others.

Last week, we wrote a review about the Hermes Oxer Top Handle Ad Campaign, we revealed the Oxer Bag in Mat Crocodile Leather, which is delicious. Today we are going to show you two more designs from normal leather (Taurillon Clemence and Barenia Calfskin). And also in two different colors, just to give you an accurate feel of what to expect.

For those that are interested, the colors available will be; green, white, black, fauve, white and brown. The medium size is measured 15’ x 7’ x 11’ inches.

Tory Burch Small Cage Top Handle

Categories:Other Brands

tory_burch_small-cage-top-handleBecause it takes a lot to amaze me these days as far as new bags are concerned (I’m blaming it on the constant barrage we see online every day), today’s #bagoftheday is a real treat.

From Tory Burch comes the Small Cage Top Handle, a ‘strange’ bag in a shape you don’t see every day. A cross between a bird cage and an ice bucket, this is also the style of bag I predict we’ll all be using in 2041, its matte polished metal frame underlaid with a layer of grey flannel that’s topped with a single top handle.

Sure this isn’t the bag for everyone, more suited for those young hipster types who take their coffees black, have wardrobes made up of black, white and every single shade of grey in-between and insist on running all their Instagram shots through VSCO Cam’s T1 filter.

Priced at USD495, the bad news is that you won’t find it here at Tory Burch Wisma Atria. You could instead buy it online and get it vPost-ed to Singapore.

Valentino Rockstud Double Handle Bag

Categories:Other Brands

valentino_rockstud-double-handle-bagWhenever I’m at the airport, I have loads of time on my hands, especially once my errands (change-money-check-out-bookstore-shop-at-Hermès) are done. Then I’ll do my next favourite thing, people watching, or more specifically, watching the kinds of bags people are carrying as they make their way to their flights. And one bag I’ve been seeing loads of lately is the Valentino Rockstud Double Handle Bag, with the one in the smallest size (but of course, right?) being the most common.

Valentino’s take on the bag-with-wings style that’s still all the rage now, the 23 cm by 20 cm leather bag comes adorned with studs on the sides and on the sling. And instead of the usual flat leather straps most Valentino’s bags come in, these ones come with stiff rolled leather handles, which are by far more comfortable, and easier on the eyes, standing in place nicely as opposed to the former that just flops over.

Ladies who I’ve observed carrying this bag are also younger, from the blonde in jeans at Malpensa with her Rockstud Double Handle Bag in a bright hue of red, to the Chinese chick at HKIA with her stunner in deep blue with silver studs. Priced atUSD1960 via Valentino online, you could order yourself one via the site which ships internationally and be the next girl I spot the next time I’m boarding a flight.

Frugal Friday

By the time Friday rolls around (and it sure took its time), you feel tired and frazzled, but much like the weekend, another bag is always waiting to offer you a sense of renewal. Plop down that less-organized-than-it-was-on-Monday work tote and get yourself one of these ladylike top handles. You can’t help but feel sophisticated and put-together with polished accessories like these – even if you’re in your sweaty yoga pants. Though almost all come with a shoulder strap (because, function), carrying them delicately by their top handles is the best way to remind yourself to slow down and savor the feel of a gorgeous bag. Best of all? These little luxuries come in at surprisingly low price points. Ladies know that being frugal is a virtue; just because it’s payday doesn’t mean you need to spend it all at once!
