Another new bag that’s just hit Singapore from the Spring-Summer 2009 Womens Kate Spade collection is the Kate Spade Au Revoir Griffen (measuring 36 cm by 33.5 cm), basically a very simple tote bag that’s great for files and a laptop. What I like more is the print it comes in, depicting beach holiday inspired graphics which includes lobsters, beach umbrellas, coconut trees and the like.
The graphics are printed on a coated canvas, and it’s not PVC covered unlike some of the previous Griffen bags, which means 2 things. It does look better without the plasticky PVC, but because there is no PVC cover, it is also more prone to ink marks, scuffs and stains. Retailing for SGD370, check out its sunny disposition at their boutique at Raffles City Shopping Centre. They also come as cosmetic pouches (also known as the Heddy) in Large (SGD180) and Medium (SGD150).
