I met the most adorable bag in person today, and no, it ain’t the Céline Mini Shopper (SGD2550) that’s pictured above. But before I go any further, let’s backtrack a little. Though the now-famous tote needs no introduction (it has a come a long way since the day it was launched), there is still much confusion when it comes to the name and the sizes.
Officially referred to as the Luggage Shopper (or Luggage Tote), it has also been called the Boston Shopper, though I really do not know why, but for the sake of clarity we’ll just refer to her by her former name(s) here.
Now on to the sizes. The Luggage Shopper officially comes in 5 sizes, namely Medium (in Leopard Jute, SGD2650, shown above), Shoulder, Mini, Mirco and Nano. The one that I own (also the largest) is the one in Medium (38 cm by 40 cm). Next comes Shoulder (37 cm by 30 cm), Mini (30 cm by 30 cm), Mirco (26 cm by 26 cm) and last but not least, Nano (20 cm by 20 cm). I’ve also read that there used to be 2 more sizes (Large and Small), but they have since been discontinued.
What’s most interesting about the Nano is the fact that because it is so small, they decided to add a removable shoulder strap so that you can sling it across the body. I saw one in leather and canvas today during the S/S11 press presentation, and it was truly too cute to resist. Best thing, it will only retail for SGD1400 (no really, I’m not kidding) when it is released in the coming weeks, so best you go on down to their store at Ngee Ann City to wait list for it.
