Fashion darling Olga is back for another instalment of Bags For Chinese New Year/Valentine’s Day, which features another pair of my favourite bags this season. Looking chic in S/S13 RTW apparel from Loewe and Mulberry, the bags in question are Loewe’s Leo (left) and Mulberry’s Cecily (right) respectively.
A new offering from Spanish house Loewe, the Leo is a gorgeous full leather tote that’s also big on style. Crafted from smooth calf, it’s surprisingly roomy, with a detachable leather clutch on the inside that can be used along with the tote, or on its own. What’s more, each Leo (they are available in at least 6 different colours) is beautifully contrasted on the inside with brightly hued interiors in suede for a luxe finish.
Measuring 38 cm by 28 cm, you can check the tote that’s good for both work and play at Loewe Ngee Ann City and Marina Bay Sands where they sell for SGD1690 each.
On the right we’ve got the Cecily, which was also previously covered here. From Mulberry’s S/S13 collection, the one in Nude Silky Snake Print is chic and understated, with the right amount of bling without taking it over the top. Priced at GBP795 via Mulberry online, the 20.5 cm by 15.5 cm shoulder sling is great for weekends or a night out in town with the girls, safely tucked under your arm as you dance the night away.
And because it is the Year of the Snake, it’s just apt too that the bag is covered in Mulberry’s signature Silky Snake Print, right?
