Fendi Kan I Leather Sling Bag

Categories:Other Brands

IMAGES: FENDI

Fendi calls this the Kan I, which honestly isn’t the easiest bag to describe. For starters, it isn’t just one bag, it’s many different bags that come in enough permutations guaranteed to make your head dizzy.

Let me explain. At its core, the Kan I is Fendi’s new boxy shoulder sling that comes in at least 2 or 3 sizes anchored by square pyramid clasps. Then there are the many styles, which range from the really basic (think straightforward full leather slings that come with the most minimal of embellishments) to the full-on Marie Antoinette (think scalloped edging, contrast embroidery and 3D appliqués in every pastel colour imaginable, for starters), making it a bag (or in this case, a selection of bags) that will truly appeal to anyone and everyone.

Made up of dual gusseted compartments separated by a stiff partition, the other thing to love about the Kan I are the slings it comes with, and depending on the one you pick, it might come with a long metal chain sling, or short leather top handles topped with, you guessed it, even more embellishments. In other words, whether you believe in #lessismore or #moreismore, there will definitely be a style just for you. And if the slings/straps that come with aren’t enough, just pick up more slings from Fendi’s Strap You collection (add in a fur charm or two) and make your bag a true one-of-a-kind creation, where it is only limited by your imagination.

3.1 Phillip Lim Alix Circle Leather Clutch

3.1PhillipLim_AlixCircleLeatherClutch

Phillip Lim celebrated the 10th anniversary of his numerically tweaked eponymous label over New York Fashion Week. With a Spring ’16 collection that’s equal parts sporty, streetwise, and feminine, and all parts fresh and modern, to say the designer has hit his stride is an understatement. And with bags like this, of course, he proves he is going stronger than ever.

As an innate trendsetter who’s never one to play the role of follower, Phillip has a keen sense of what’s right now. By the time others catch up, he’s already over it. That’s why we should always look to him when we crave something that’s ahead of the curve yet thoroughly wearable. Like this rounded, stitched-up little clutch that will inspire you to change it up. This may be a glorified coin purse, but it’s one that’s worth every penny. The handle reads like modern art, the details couldn’t be cooler, and when you carry it, the result is instant edginess with a sense of whimsy. 3.1 Phillip Lim bag

Bottega Veneta Intrecciato Leather Box Shoulder Bag

Categories:Other Brands

We are seeing a lot of boxy bags recently, but here is more of an approachable and softer hybrid. This Bottega Veneta has the look of a box, but it functions like a typical shoulder bag with an easy-access zipper-top opening. Think of it as a box for beginners, or for those who love the look of rigid structure (as well as Bottega’s classic weave) but don’t want to deal with the reality of rigid structure. It’s completely practical: the top unzips wide, the interior has an updated phone pouch to accommodate larger devises, and the outer slide pockets with tab closure are very handy. Finally, the cute size is perfect for the pert shape.

Bottega Veneta Intrecciato Leather Box Shoulder Bag

I, of course, love boxes, like our collaboration with Mark Cross, which is sold out! But I wouldn’t quite put these two bags in the identical category. The dressed-up Grace box is perfect for special occasions, while this Bottega can be worn daily by those with hectic lives. And don’t we all have hectic lives? Bottega Veneta Intrecciato shoulder bag

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.
