One of the challenges I give myself is to seek out brands that have never seen light of day on this blog, instead of always blogging about the usual few, because variety is, indeed, the spice of life. And if the brand has bags that are well-made, functional and of course, look good, that would be a bonus.
Which brings us to the S/S13 Max Mara Giubilo, a new shape from the Italian house that’s perhaps more well-known for its womenswear. In essence a shoulder bag with a rolled leather/chain-link strap, the 24.5 cm by 21 cm bag comes with dual compartments, a roomy one that forms the bulk of the bag, as well as an additional flat patch pocket in the front for smaller essentials.
Chic, clean and good for both work and play, it also comes in Cream/Tan and sells for SGD1249. And while you’re at Max Mara ION Orchard checking out the Giubilo, do also ask to see the Max Mara Hollywood as well, a smartly structural tote that costs just over SGD3000 and comes swathed in lush pony hair that makes a luxe alternative to the boring work bag.
