Other Brands

IMAGE: GIVENCHY

Get in touch with your girly-girl side with the all-new printed nylon backpack from Givenchy that’s big on #flowerpower. And if you’re doing a double-take and finding the bag silhouette somewhat familiar, you’re right. Bearing similar dimensions to its canvas counterpart, this Nano Backpack from Givenchy comes in at 24 cm high by 17 cm wide. In other words, small, but one that will fit your absolute essentials most comfortably.

Besides being small, and cute, the backpack does possess other merits as well. For one, it comes in a nylon body which means it is water-resistant, primed to handle a few splashes of water on days when the weather decides to take a turn for the worse. Two, it can be used in a number of ways, as a backpack, over the shoulder, as a mini-tote, even doubling up as a comfy cushion when you’re travelling from one place to another. Three, it is an affordable piece, one that’s priced at just SGD1450. And finally, the good news. The Nano Backpack is available now at all Givenchy boutiques islandwide.

CHANEL STITCHED QUILTED ZIP AROUND WALLETS WITH TASSEL

Other Brands

Chanel-Stitch-Quilted-Zip-Around-Wallets-with-Tassel

The Chanel Stitched Quilted Zip Around Wallets is from the Pre-Fall 2017 Collection. There have been two styles with the same design. The first one is the WOC version and there is also a pouch version, which has the same shape like the Chanel O Case.

A new design, but it won’t be here forever. After the season is over, this bag might be discontinued. So here is a chance to grab a limited edition wallet.

The oversized quilted is not overwhelming, but it’s notable and eye-catching. The quilting is highlighted with vivid stitches. The interlocking CC logo is also a new design; it’s covered with little stripes on the edges. It’s refined with a boho-chic tassel with fringes. This tassel is attached to the zipper, which includes a leather zip in the same color as the bag.

Made from lambskin – even tough this leather is fragile, but it’s extremely soft. Lambskin is okay as long as you slip it right back into your bag, where it’s safe and sound. It comes in two sizes and different colors. Check out the details below:

Introducing Senreve Handbags

Other Brands

Back in February, we covered 10 brands to watch for 2017 and Senreve was on the list. Before that, I hadn’t heard much about this San Francisco-based brand, and that’s not surprising—Senreve is only eight months old. (I remember the brand’s age because it’s the same as Millie’s age!) In its short life, Senreve has already made its way into the hearts of many, myself included, and I’ve been talking with the brand to learn more about their designs.

Though based in San Francisco, Senreve bags are handcrafted in Italy by Tuscan artisans with 100% Italian leather. Senreve artisans have worked with top luxury brands for more than a combined fifty years, and it shows: the bags are incredibly well-made, the leather is sturdy yet supple and structured yet lightweight, and it’s also both durable and water-resistant.

When it comes to the final product, after talking to the founders multiple times, it stood out that one of their focal points is usability of their bags. Each bag, each compartment and each measurement is made with purpose. The idea behind the line is that a woman shouldn’t have to choose between a bag that looks good and one that works well.

crossbody in blush – $495

The exterior of each bag is clean, logo-free, and sleek while the interior is impeccably made and planned out as well. The pale blue stain-resistant microsuede interior is the perfect color to find all of your items (I find that black interiors are so hard to hunt around in). Many bags that have microsuede lining wind up being heavy, but these bags are far from that. Though the leather exterior and the microsuede interior seem like they could leave you with a cumbersome bag, it is quite the opposite. And the interior is all about usability and functionality. My favorite bag from the line, the Senreve Maestra, has an interior laptop compartment that fits my 13″ MacBook Pro perfectly. As far as the interior goes, there are 7 different compartments, including the padded laptop sleeve with a snap closure, and the other pockets can easily hold your other necessities in their own area.

maestra in creme – $895

The Senreve Maestra is my favorite of the bunch, and the company will soon be releasing a Mini Maestra as well. Each bag can be worn a variety of ways, including as a satchel, tote, crossbody, or backpack. I’m not a huge backpack gal (though in my mind, I’d like to be), but I’ve seen plenty of photos of girls carrying this bag as a backpack and it looks great. I love that the long strap is adjustable and I easily can carry this bag cross-body, which works really well while holding Millie. The design is simple and really attractive.

Senreve sent me the cream Maestra, and I’ve been using it for a week now and am looking forward to seeing how it works for me and holds up—light colored bags scare me about color transfer, but Senreve assures me their bags have been tried and tested! The Maestra is versatile and feminine, offered in a variety of colors and two types of leather: Pebbled or Mimosa (Mimosa reminds me of LV Epi Leather). The size is ideal for someone who is on the go and needs to carry a lot and have a functional (yet stylish) tote. Often, when a bag is trying to be functional, it winds up looking overly work-like, and that isn’t what working women are always looking for. Most women I talk to want a bag that is ladylike, modern, and easy-to-use, and this bag gets a check in each box.

doctor bag – $895

There are other bags and accessories as well, including the Doctor Bag, Voya Tote, Crossbody, Bracelet Pouch, Envelope Clutch, Card Wallet and Caddy. The Doctor Bag has an East/West shape, but also can be worn boxy by folding in the gussets at the sides. The Crossbody is a three-compartment bag that is good for weekends and nights out – cool thing about the Crossbody is there’s a removable bracelet pouch that you can unsnap and use by itself! The Envelope Clutch can hold a laptop and slide into the Maestra Bag or be carried separately. The two leathers offered, Pebbled or Mimosa, are both extremely durable and lightweight. The Pebbled leather has a softer finish (but is scratch resistant) while the Mimosa leather gets its long-grain texture from the treatment of machine pressing. Each bag and design is straightforward yet stands out. Prices range from $95 to $895.

envelope in pebbled coral and mimosa bordeaux – $245

I was introduced to this brand at the perfect time, just as I was feeling like a new designer needed to break into the handbag world. As handbag lovers, we have so many options when it comes to established brands, but I am always excited to see a new brand that I believe has great products and can make a space for itself in the market. The founders of Senreve are handbag lovers like us and wanted to fill a void they saw in women’s closets. When talking to them, I can hear their passion for their craft, and it was evident when I saw the bags in person. This might be our first in-depth look at the brand, but it won’t be the last. Shop all Senreve bags via the company’s website.

THE ULTIMATE CHLOE FAYE BAG REVIEW

Other Brands

Chloe-Faye-Bag

The Chloe Faye Bag was first released in the Spring Summer 2015 Collection and it came right after the success of the Drew Bag. Just like the previous ‘IT Bags’, the Faye became one of the most popular handbags among bloggers and celebrities. Chiara Ferragni from The Blonde Salad, Chrissy Teigen and Eva Longoria were spotted carrying it not long after the bag hits the stores.

The Chloe Faye Bag was one of the last releases before the creative director Waight Keller left the company in 2017. The Faye Bag is still trending today and the line has even extended to the mini bag and other small leather accessories like wallets.

The Design

Chloe-Faye-Bag-design

The design of the Chloe Faye Bag is inspired by the spirit of the 70’s, which is also the decade when Chloe became one of the symbolic brands in the fashion world. Just like most of Chloe’s bag designs, the Faye is also a stunning casual chic handbag that matches perfectly with a winter coat. The size is also formidable larger than the Drew Bag and can store more essentials; making it an ideal bag to use for work.

While the leather is gorgeous, the focus lies in the centerpiece. Just right below the front flap, the Faye Bag is made with a large loop attached to the chain, which then is attached to the side. And whether the hardware is gold or silver, it’s shiny enough to attract plenty of attentions.

The shape of the bag depends on the size you choose; the medium sizes are crafted in trapezoid shape while the small size comes in squared shape. Both come with long shoulder strap to carry on your shoulder or cross body.

The Sizes

Chloe-Faye-Bag-Sizes

From Left To Right: Wallet On Chain, Small, Medium

The measurements:
Chloe Faye Wallet On Chain: 19 x 10 x 3 (W x H x D) cm
Chloe Small Faye Bag: 24 x 15 x 6 (W x H x D) cm
Chloe Medium Faye Bag: 32 x 25 x 10 (W x H x D) cm

For now, the Chloe Faye Bag is available in small and medium size. Even tough the important components are the same like the large loop, the shape and the interior is different. The small size is much smaller than the medium size. And while the medium size is ideal to wear for work, the small size is perfect whenever you don’t need to carry too many stuff.

The Leathers

Chloe-Faye-Bag-Leathers

From Left To Right: Goatskin, Part Suede And Calfskin

The Chloe Faye Bag is usually made with single colors and part suede/part leather. The part suede and part leather creates the most interesting look, because suede makes the color brighter and the leather makes the color sharper. Together with the big loop in shiny hardware, you can be certain that it’s a statement maker. For the single colors, the most popular leather available is goatskin.

The Colors

Chloe-Faye-Bag-Colors-1

From Left To Right: Black, Brown, Dark Brown, Pink

Chloe-Faye-Bag-Colors-2

From Left To Right: Burgundy, Green, Orange, Light Grey

Chloe-Faye-Bag-part-colors

From Left To Right; Part Suede & Part Leather Line: Black, Blue, Grey

Chloe-Faye-Bag-part-colors-2

From Left To Right; Part Suede & Part Leather Line: Brown, Orange, Red

There is never lack in colors at Chloe, but there are certain colors that are popular and practical. The most picked leather by bloggers and celebrities is orange (usually in part suede and part leather), then there is black, beige/white, brown and grey.

GUESS Originals x A$AP Rocky Capsule Collection

Other Brands

IMAGES: GUESS

If you’re old enough to remember GUESS, you’re definitely old, which was the first thing that came to mind when I laid eyes on the GUESS Originals x A$AP capsule collection. Back then it was all about the sexy GUESS girls and boys in their tightly fitted jeans and almost everyone I knew had a pair. Or two. Along with whatever else they sold which pretty much sold like hotcakes back in the day.

You could say I’m feeling nostalgic (old people tend to do that a lot), but this particular collaboration sure brought back many memories, with the 35-piece vintage-inspired collection promising to have something for everyone. And the one thing that caught my eye? Those GUE$$ tees that come with $$ instead of SS which I think is all A$AP’s doing. Imbued with the vibe of the 80s (or is it the 90s), they are fun, they are colourful and they are definitely gay (and by gay I mean happy). Priced from SGD89 and up, they will be available in Singapore at 3 GUESS boutiques (ION Orchard, Marina Bay Sands and Ngee Ann City) from 8 July 2017.

And while your guess is as good as mine as to whether this will help the brand from sliding further into oblivion, I’m guessing many of you would get a tee (or two) just to take that walk down memory lane (see what I did there?). Because I most definitely am.
