Burberry’s D-ring family of bags isn’t an entirely new line per se, but one that’s been reintroduced in different shapes and materials season after season, a move that only affirms its popularity amongst fans of the box-style bag characterised by the iconic ‘D’ shaped fastening. What’s new, however, is the introduction of the Mini, a size which comes with a smaller ring clasp, along with the vintage check print decorating the front flap.
Measuring 17.5 cm by 12.5 cm, the Mini version opens to a roomy inner compartment that’s fully lined in leather, with another zipped pocket if you need extra security for cash, important notes or keys. All about carrying your bag without a wallet? There are three extra card slots within that’s more than sufficient for a day out, leaving you extra space for makeup essentials, mobile phone and even a portable charger.
The chain-link shoulder strap provides extra flair and is perfect for wearing over the shoulder or across the body if you so wish to. Better yet, the strap is also removable, so you can detach it and carry the bag like a chic clutch. For a bag that’s totally functional, finished with hand-painted edges and made in Italy, it does come as a surprise that it is only priced at SGD1580. While it has yet to launch in stores, it will be available soon, so all you have to do is to head down to their boutiques (ION Orchard, Marina Bay Sands and Paragon Shopping Centre), leave your name and be informed the moment it arrives.
