Everyone from big name influencers to the girl sitting next to you at the hipster açaí joint is probably carrying Staud’s Mini Shirley PVC Tote, a top handle PVC bag that’s all the rage right now. Sure, it is a chic and affordable piece that’s available at sites like NET-A-PORTER, but if you’re all for standing out from the crowd with an equally good (if not better) looking piece, you can definitely consider this gem of a bag from Mlouye, an up-and-coming brand that focuses on quality (both in design and craftsmanship) over quantity.
The Small Chequer Tote is made from a clear PVC body that’s contrasted with a D-shaped leather handle, finished with leather cut-out panels on the exterior which form a cool checked pattern. The open-top format is great for those who love a bag that’s all about the quick access, measuring 26 cm by 21 cm that’s big enough for several daily essentials. However, if you’re worried about security, there’s a small zip pocket on the interior which is perfect for keeping your phone, mini cardholder and even keys secured within.
As far as the colours are concerned, you will be able to find 5 different combinations which comprise Brown, Coral, Green, Lilac or Yellow, all of which can be carried all year round. Priced at USD245 each (inclusive of duties and taxes), you will be able to find the Small Chequer Tote over at Mlouye’s e-store over here, which offers complimentary shipping to Singapore. It also helps that the brand believes completely in product satisfaction, and if you have second thoughts about your purchase, you can easily do a return by contacting the support team within 14 days of delivery. In other words, fuss-free shopping!
