The maneki-neko (which is quite literally known as the ‘beckoning cat’) is loved the world over as a symbol of good luck for the owner. Originating in Japan, it is apt that Kate Spade’s Hello Tokyo capsule collection features the adorable cat in the form of clutch. Measuring a wee 11.5 cm across by 13 cm in height, the wee bag also features a zip compartment in the middle as well as a long sling which allows you to wear it across the body or over the shoulder.
Priced at SGD480 and now available at Kate Spade boutiques locally, this would be the kind of bag I would bring along to the casino for luck (not that I do) or the kind of bag I would use to store my lottery tickets for luck (not that I buy). Then again, one doesn’t need any reason when faced with cuteness this adorable.
