There are days when I am smug and confident of my taste in bags, and then there are days when I am completely off and fall for the weird and quirky. After attending the launch of Versace Jewellery in Singapore at Soo Kee Jewellery’s Diamond Pavé, we proceeded to Ngee Ann City for a spot of window shopping.
Coach as always was crowded (sale or no sale), as was Gucci (the SAs were unpacking loads of boxes and their sale starts 1 December!) and I caught sight of the Bottega Veneta Marble Intrecciato Nappa Vichy Bag which comes in Azur and Burnt Orange.
Strangely I was attracted to this particular bag even though it resembles checked PVC table coverings used by many households in the 90s. Perhaps it was the buttery-soft leather, perhaps it was the cute little size, perhaps it reminded me of my happy childhood sitting at the table eating my Mum’s home-made cheesecake, but all the feelings I got from just looking at it were good. Even if it costs SGD3930.
