It’s not exactly a surprise that luxury goods are no longer dominated solely by women, with more and more brands catering to the needs of the menfolk, because the men clearly now do get it. Yes, shopping for himself. From the street style hype to the luxury brand must-haves, there’s no stopping him in his quest for the new and the well-made. Which is why brands like Goyard are great, because they’re constantly expanding their offerings for men, such as this all-new Capetien (pronouced cap-pee-sion), a cool, roomy messenger that’s pretty much perfect for the everyday.
Like an upsized yet more casual take on Goyard’s Belvedere, the Capetien is available in a single size that measures 38 cm wide and 28 cm high, and opens via a single leather tab that’s hidden behind the front flap. The bag is spacious enough for all your A4 documents, and will even fit a 13” laptop comfortably within. There are also two pockets in the interior that will fit other essentials like your cardholder or wallet, just to keep things a tad bit neater within. Shut the flap down and turn it around, and you will find an extra slip pocket at the back.
The other plus point about the Capetien is that it’s incredibly lightweight in nature, coming in Goyard’s signature coated canvas that’s known for its sturdiness and strength. It’s also furnished with a canvas shoulder strap that can be adjusted and worn over the shoulder or across the chest, one that’s catered for multiple body types. How much? Classic colours like Black or Black/Tan are priced at SGD2790, with special hues like Green, Grey or Navy priced at SGD3630 each. Keen to find out more? The Capetien is now available at Goyard’s standalone boutique at Takashimaya Shopping Centre.
