While 2019 was the year of #ThomasBurberryMonogram, with the motif appearing everywhere from beanies and caps to an entire assortment of bags, RTW and even yoga mats (yes, you’re reading it right), Burberry’s archival Vintage Check pattern will be taking centrestage soon, a huge return for both men and women. In fact, you will be able to find an entire section on Burberry’s online store right now, all ready for you to usher in the new decade.
A standout piece in the collection would have to be the Vintage Check Two-Handle Title Bag, one that’s the perfect amalgamation of old-meets-new. What’s old? The Vintage Check, an iconic pattern of the house originating back in the 1920s as an inner lining for Burberry’s rainproof trench coats. Today, the pattern forms the exterior of the bag, complementing perfectly well the brown leather trims and handles. What’s new then? That would be the trapezoid-shaped Title Bag which was created with the contemporary woman in mind.
Measuring 32 cm by 25 cm, the bag comes with double top handles and an extra shoulder strap which offers multiple ways of carrying. It also opens to two roomy interior compartments that will house a good day’s worth of essentials, and can even be considered a great work bag thanks to its rigid structure and sleek-looking silhouette. Finished with hand-painted edges and polished metallic hardware, you can be sure it is also one that’s set to become a timeless classic in the years to come.
Priced at SGD3050, the Vintage Check Two-Handle Title Bag is now available at Burberry boutiques in ION Orchard, Marina Bay Sands and Paragon Shopping Centre, as well as online here, where it will reach you within 2 to 4 working days upon order.
