Ever so often it comes back to haunt us. Yes, I’m talking about bright fluorescent neons, the ones that come out of fashion graveyards ever so often with their seasonal visits. CdG Homme has a collab with Nike now featuring the Air Max 180 in bright pink neons. Balenciaga’s collaboration which just launched on NET-A-PORTER and Mr Porter features some leather goods in bright neon yellow. And if you walked past any Burberry boutique lately, you would have seen their latest collection that also comes in the brightest of neons.
More specifically, this pair of Doodle Print Leather Frame bags that come in either bright pink or green and covered with lots and lots of doodles. Or in Singapore-speak, graffiti. Topped with a pair of orb-shaped clasps that’s actually pretty cute, the 19.5 cm by 14 cm bag is made of 100% calf leather, comes with its own removable sling and will set you back by SGD3095.
In other words, no.
Go instead for the Embossed Leather Wallet that comes with its own leather strap. Priced at just SGD1450, it’s easier on the eyes (really), works well as a WOC (wallet-on-chain) and is something that’s actually functional as well.
