Affordable and then some. Presenting the Vanessa Bruno Athé Oversized Leather Tote which in my opinion looks almost like a twin of the Hermès Lindy. Like Hermès, Vanessa Bruno is also French, and both bags are similar in many ways. The bucket-shaped body, a pair of short structured handles, a removable shoulder strap, I could go on and on. But unlike the Lindy, the Athé comes with 2 additional side pockets that will come in handy for knick-knacks and the like.
But unlike the Lindy which will cost you quite a fair bit, the Athé in full leather only costs just USD247.50 (or around SGD345 or so) at theOutnet. Want to check out Vanessa Bruno for yourself in Singapore? Then head down to Undress at Mandarin Gallery (#02-28), which also stocks the French brand’s apparel, bags and accessories.
