Here’s a quick rundown of what I’ve been obsessing over lately.
Loewe Papelle Collection
3 new sizes have been launched in Singapore, smaller and more manageable than the previous collection. Inspired by traditional paper bags, the Papelle is truly stunning in real life. Made of natural calf leather that’s smooth to the touch, the interior is lined in suede and retails from SGD1890 apiece. The one that I like, the Papelle35, retails for SGD2490. Check them out at Loewe Ngee Ann City.
Interesting isn’t it? From the F/W10 collection, this reinterpreted Classic Flap (SGD4450, expected to launch in October 2010) comes with a paint-splattered bottom, a top zip for fast and easy access and loads of attitude. I really want to see this for myself in person. Not for myself, but just to appreciate it and have an up-close feel. Because every Chanel bag is after all a work of art.
Givenchy Mens Nightingale
It hasn’t arrived in Singapore just yet, but the Givenchy Mens Nightingale has been giving me some sleepless nights. Besides being longer than the version for women, details have also been kept to a minimum, which is always good. Retailing for SGD1800, it should probably arrive here after October, but put yourself on the wait list at Givenchy Paragon just in case. Besides the Mens Nightingale, I’ve also been torn between the Pandora and the Céline Luggage Tote. Which will it be?
Apple iPod Nano
Nifty and tiny (it’s even smaller than a matchbox), the new iPod Nano (from SGD228) is seriously adorable. Use it to play your favourite tracks, listen to FM radio, fill it up with your most memorable snapshots; the things you can do with it just go on and on. Now, if only I can decide on the colour. Graphite?
