Mark Cross Grace ‘Galaxy’ Bag

Other Brands

IMAGE: NET-A-PORTER

If you’re first thought was Fendi or Prada, well, not quite. This cutie of a bag belongs to Mark Cross, an American luxury label that I wished I was more familiar with. As far as know, they’ve been making tiny luggage style bags that also are shoulder slings, complete with top handle and a little luggage hangtag. This one, from their Pre-Fall 2016 collection and now available via Net-A-Porter comes with its very own robot face, made up of cut-outs and leather appliqués for that contrasting 3D look.

Measuring 21.5 cm by 18.5 cm with a depth of 11 cm, this little fella is now available via Net-A-Porter where it is priced at GBP1750, or around SGD3000 after conversion. Not exactly cheap, but do remember it is full leather after all, and on the inside there’s even an additional zip pocket to keep the personals safe. Besides, how does one say no to a face like that, right?

The Best Fall Bag For Your Zodiac Sign

The Best Fall Bag For Your Zodiac Sign

When choosing to invest in a new luxury item, we think there’s no better way to treat yourself than with a new handbag. With Fall in full swing and the memories of Summer slowly (and sadly) fading, it’s the perfect time to invest in a pick me up guaranteed to brighten your spirits. As an extra bonus, the handbag trends for this Fall include favorites like saddle bags, fringe, backpacks, and boxy bags.

Whether you’re a woman on the go who prefers a functional bag or a workaholic looking for a multifunctional, understated item, there’s an investment handbag out there for everyone. In fact, that’s part of the problem — there are so many options that it can often be difficult to choose which bag is worth dipping into your bank account for. Especially with a bag you’re going to splurge on, you want to make sure you’re picking the right bag for you — one that’s sure to give you your money’s worth.

To help you narrow down your options, we’ve combined Fall style trends with one of the most reliable ways of determining personal style and taste: zodiac signs. While horoscopes can speak to the unique relationships and personalities of the various signs, they can also help you better understand your fashion sense! If there’s one thing bold Arieses, unpredictable Geminis, and classic Cancers can all agree on, it’s the importance of finding the right handbag.

Aries

Aries

Bold Aries will love the bright color and stud detailing on this MARC BY MARC JACOBS biker backpack. As Aries are typically adventurous and independent, the function of a backpack (one of the top Fall trends) makes this the ideal choice for an investment purchase.

Taurus

Taurus

Understated and sensual Taurus will fall in love with the “dusty rose” color and useful functionality of this Grace Atelier De Luxe bucket bag. We’re seeing the bucket bag trend make a serious comeback this Fall, and this version is perfect for a Taurus looking for a versatile investment.

2 / 12 

Gemini

Gemini

The geometric pattern, colorblocking, and structured shape of this Valentino handbag  makes it an ideal choice for the intense, unique, and explorative Gemini. Gemini’s unpredictability is matched by the functionality and understated-yet-bold colors of this bag — no matter where the day may go, this bag will meet Gemini’s needs.

3 / 12 

Cancer

Cancer

One of Cancer’s most signature traits is right in the description of this bag: classic. The compassionate and romantic Cancer is well-suited for this Saint Laurent monogram bag 

4 / 12 

Leo

Leo

Radiant Leo loves the limelight, and this bag’s unique pattern is certainly a head-turner. This boxy shoulder bag from Paula Cademartori is reminiscent of times past and the various pockets provide function as well as stand-out style.

5 / 12 


Virgo

Virgo

Confident Virgo could pull off a bold style, but their stable and supportive nature leans towards investing in a bag that can be put to everyday use. This Fendi tote  is the ideal combination of both of Virgo’s sides: classic design and neutral color, but pops of flavor in the patterned detailing.

6 / 12 

Libra

Libra

Blue is Libra’s power color, so this bright Givenchy handbag  will give this sign a sense of empowerment and strength. The bag’s design fits with Libra’s desire for structure and harmony, and will turns heads without being overly flashy.

7 / 12 

Scorpio

Scorpio

Resilient Scorpio will love the “sour and sweet” balance of this box clutch’s delicate crystal design and iconic skull clasp. The impact of this Alexander McQueen bag matches Scorpio’s notorious sense of power.

8 / 12 

Sagittarius

Sagittarius

Optimistic and adventurous Sagittarius will adore the red on this Balenciaga cable leather tote. Though the color is on the bold spectrum, the style is classic, speaking to the honest and loving side of this sign.

9 / 12 

Capricorn

Capricorn

Capricorns are typically sophisticated achievers — thus this Chloé shoulder bag speaks to this sign’s classy soul. Since black matches with everything, the color choice will appease the part of Capricorns that seeks (and provides!) reliability.

10 / 12 

Aquarius

Aquarius

Trendsetting Aquarius is bold, eccentric, and not afraid to draw some stares. This gold Moschino “mini boom box” bag is just fun enough to match Aquarius’s wild side.

11 / 12 

Pisces

Pisces

Sensitive and mysterious Pisces will love the smooth, tanned leather and bold-yet-subtle look of this Coach Ace Satchel .As a water sign, the uniform, deep green coloring of this bag will please Pisces’s oceanic side.

Chanel Pre-Collection 2016 Small Shopper

Other Brands


IMAGE: CHANEL

As if there aren’t enough bags coming out in the new season to distract us (I have at least 5 on wait list now, and another 5 on my wish list), Chanel gives you one more reason with this bag from their Pre-Collection 2016 line-up. From the same collection as this one, the Caviar Grained Calfskin Messenger that many of you loved (and I’m happy to add, some of you bought), this one, the Small Shopper, will have many falling hard as well.

Measuring 30.5 cm by 20.5 cm, this quilted calfskin darling that’s slight bigger than A4 should be able to hold your work essentials, which besides your wallet, keys and make-up essentials, should also be able to hold an iPad and a couple of work files, especially useful for those who work on the go. It’s finished with aged, slightly tarnished gold-tone hardware that’s love, love, love. Priced at SGD6340, you can now find it at Chanel boutiques in Singapore, so I would suggest heading down soon to have a look if this one also happens to be on your lust list.

If you like the style of the Small Shopper but want something that’s less OL (office lady), why not check out this pair of Flap Bag options in the same collection. Seasonal pieces that come in 2 sizes, the smaller one measures 25 cm by 16 cm while the larger one, in that deep gorgeous Dark Green, comes in at 30 cm by 18.5 cm. Priced atSGD5410 and SGD5970 respectively, they would be the bags if you already have theClassic Flap bags and want something else to add colour and variety to your bag wardrobe.
