Prada is the Latest Brand to Court the Affections of Cat Ladies

Other Brands

Prada’s handbags tend to be overwhelmingly staid; the brand has positioned itself, season after season, asthe source for work-appropriate power bags for women with corner offices (or corner office aspirations), and although Miuccia allows for an artistic departure here and there, whimsy is usually not her stock in trade. With that in mind, I have no explanation for the Prada Mink Fur Cat Pochette.

Kitschy, literal bags are a huge trend right now (as is weirdness in general, and as are cats), and Pradawill bow to pretty much any accessories trend that becomes strong enough, even if it isn’t totally on brand. (Gotta sell bags, after all.) This cat’s jeweled eyes and nose relate the clutch back to Prada’s visual signatures for accessories, but other than that, it just doesn’t feel like much of a Prada bag; if you had told me it was Charlotte Olympia, I’d have believed you without question, and that’s a brand with which Prada’s general aesthetic just doesn’t overlap. That’s not necessarily a complaint–the bag is super cute.

Prada’s previous ventures into literalness that haven’t been either purely artistic or plainly political have generally involved very small accessories, like teddy bear bag charms. As much as I love Prada’s general handbag aesthetic, it’s never bad to see a brand have a little bit of fun. Apparently, I’m not alone in this approval – the bag sold out at Bergdorf Goodman in a matter of days. If you want, you can still visit its product page, though.

LONGCHAMP LM CUIR SHOPPING TOTE

Other Brands

Longchamp-Lm-Cuir-Tote

We know Longchamp for their famous Le Pliage Tote – not expensive at all and very classic, it’s even rain resistance. And I just recently read that a lot of women use the Le Pliage bag to store their expensive bag in rainy days. It also need low maintenance and can be tossed in the washer to get rid of all the germs, easy right?

Recently I have discovered something new from Longchamp, it’s from the Lm Cuir Collection, meet the Lm Cuir Shopping Tote. This bag represents the artisanal work of Longchamp craftsman, it’s smooth and elegant, inexpensive and made with supple cowhide that’s gently embossed with luxurious quilted patterns.

The black is so classic, but for the summer, you want to move toward the color Lagoon or Pink. It’s embellished with a tag on the front and refined in either golden hardware or silver hardware. The strap can be entirely adjusted to your comfort level. Its generous space can store every daily essential you need, take it from day to evening.

I love the simplicity of a single colored bag, but also the sophisticated pattern that adds a touch of luxury, and at the same time, the price is not overwhelming or mind boggling. For a gift, like today – moms day is ideal.

This shopping tote comes in two sizes, the medium size is 12 x 10 1/4 x 5 1/2 inch and priced at $585 USD or €415. The large size is 14 1/4 x 12 1/2 x 5 1/2 inch and is priced at $675 USD or €480. At Longchamp e-store.

Spring-Summer Womens LeSportsac Ad Campaign

Other Brands

Sunny, breezy and colourful is perhaps the best way to describe LeSportsac’s S/S13 ad campaign, which in Singapore’s context is especially relevant since we are sunny (and humid, and hot) 365 days of the year.

And after you’re done enjoying the video that accompanies the ad campaign, you’ll find I’ve listed the retail prices of whatever I could find on these fun pieces that are not only affordable, but lightweight and sturdy, making them great for the beach, the gym or even while you’re travelling.

lesportsac_ss13-womens-ad2Retailing from SGD160 to SGD265, you’ll find everything from wallets that can be slung across the body to backpacks galore. And then there’s the Medium Weekender in Jamboree print that retails for SGD210.

lesportsac_ss13-womens-ad1These styles sadly will not be available in Singapore, though I’m hoping something from Harbour Dot print (that’s the tote on the right) will be available.

lesportsac_ss13-womens-ad3Last but not least, the Colorburst Voyager Backpack that’s bright and cheery at justSGD240, and on the surfboard, the SGD160 crossbody wallet I was talking about earlier.

Sunny, breezy and colourful. Get them at LeSportsac boutiques and counters islandwide.

HERMES VICTORIA II TOTE

Other Brands

Hermes-Victoria-II-Tote-Black

By now you’ve visited all the Hermes store that you possibly can. You are sick and tired of hearing the same disappointing news: ‘We do not have the Birkin’.

You start to doubt: ‘Do they actually still produce the Birkin?’

In other words: how come I can’t find them anywhere?

You squeezed every drop of information from Google and tried every technique or recommendations, but no success so far.

And you’ve even tried to ask your friends and family, your network, but you get the same useless answer.

Well then, there must be a point that you should say the magic word.

Huh?

You know!

If you do not dare the say it, then I will help you: ‘F* The Birkin’.

You can live without it. Perhaps that’s not true. Allow me to correct it – you can temporary live without it.

There are many more Hermes choices, with the same fine quality and craftsmanship, made from the same leather type.

The Birkin is kind-of streamlined and easy, but sophisticated in the details. Consider the Hermes Victoria II Tote, which has inherited some DNA.

Hermes bags do not need to yell for attention through exaggerated colors or oversized logos, an authentic Hermes bag has a built-in charisma and will attract eyes automatically.

A long feminine handle, linked to a simple tag. On the top you will find an iconic Hermes lock – it closes two zippers to secure your essential. The interior appears to be simple, one large room to store your daily things, but unless you feel it with your own hands, you will not experience the Hermes quality.

Measuring 9″ x 13.8″ x 6.7″ inches (H x W x D), in Taurillon Clemence.
