With National Day just around the corner, here’s another #SG50-worthy bag that you should most definitely check out. And before you make the face (because we’ve all been bombarded with horrid bags and accessories that have been slapped with the official SG50 logo just to cash in on the celebrations), here are 3 reasons why Fendi’s Petite 2Jours is the one for keeps.
Firstly, the bag’s not mostly red. In fact, as far as its colours go, it’s a gorgeous cacophony of blues, pinks, reds and whites on a black background, with red and white (Singapore’s national colours, for those not in the know) playing only minor roles. Secondly, the orchid print is gorgeous, one that Karl Lagerfeld first introduced as part of Fendi’s S/S15 collection. Thirdly (and perhaps most importantly), this bag will only be available in Singapore, with 16 pieces allotted to our tiny red dot in all of Asia-Pacific.
Priced at SGD3680 apiece, you’ll be pleased to know the Fendi has created a special #SG50 mould that you can hotstamp on the luggage tag, or if you prefer, just your initials hotstamped onto the tag in a variety of colours. Measuring 24 cm by 22 cm, the Petite2Jours also comes with a removable shoulder sling in case you get tired of carrying it by its top handles.
Available from this week at Fendi boutiques islandwide (and by islandwide I actually mean just Marina Bay Sands or Ngee Ann City), it’s also one of those few bags you can use over and over for years to come. Sans that commemorative logo, of course.
