Q: Dear Bagaholicboy, I stumbled upon your blog and totally love it! I’m so proud that a fellow Singaporean has come up with such a brilliant bag blog! I am on the hunt for the perfect woman’s bag – one I can carry to work, after-dinner drinks, and even pair with jeans for the weekend. It should be medium-sized, understated, classic, and can be carried by hand or on the shoulder. Does such a bag even exist?
A: Dear Angie, thanks for the email. To be honest, I was stumped by your question since the day I got it. I could not, for the longest time figure it out till I showed your question to Olly. Almost immediately she muttered just one word. Coffer. And I realised I had the answer to your question. The Miu Miu Coffer is both functional and stylish without the extra fuss, which scores high in my books.
Because the bag is full leather, it is versatile enough for both work and play, you can either wear it over your shoulder or hand carry it. It also comes in a wide array of colours, but the one in Midnight-Blue above will work well with both corporate wear or jeans and a tee. Best bit, the Coffer generally costs around SGD2400 which is reasonable for a full leather bag that’s made to last. Or get the one I featured from Net-A-Porter, it only costs around SGD1875 or so.
