I first covered the Burberry Large Lowry Canvas Bag as a response to my reader’s query. She loved it and ask me what I thought of it. It was love at first sight for me, I loved everything about it and told her to go for it. Sadly she told me it was much too big for her, which also piqued my interest. If it was too big for a girl, perhaps it would be just right for a guy?
Yesterday while I was at Ngee Ann City I decided to check it out. Amongst the mad crowds and sale bags, I spotted it, sitting alone on the top shelf. It was huge, but strangely just right for me. I tried it on and it was perfect. I loved the check canvas against the dark rich leather. It was one of those bags that sat upright on the table (all stiff and hard), and its bottom had feet to protect the leather base.
I loved the interior as well, roomy with loads of side pockets, some that came with zips. The long engraved pewter tag was charming as well and I was so obsessed I went later to their boutique at Paragon just to check it out again a second time. Right now, I’m torn. If I do decide to get it, Net-A-Porter would be my choice since it only sells for SGD1860 there. In Singapore, it costs SGD2600. But with my big spend on the Graffiti Keepall coming up soon, can this extra bag purchase be justified? Decisions, decisions. And Ah Weng, yes that’s me you saw at Ngee Ann City’s Burberry boutique. My Goyard must have given me away. Next time don’t be shy and do say hi ok?
