With 2020 being the Year of the Rat, you can expect to find some of your favourite designer brands creating special pieces themed after the critter, while others have opted to collaborate with big-name animated cartoons in an entire capsule range that’s equally covetable. Kate Spade took the second approach, teaming up with Tom & Jerry (well frankly it’s just Jerry since Tom is nowhere to be found), with an entire assortment that includes everything from phone cases to wallets, along with bigger-sized accessories like backpacks and totes.
But if there’s just one must-have piece to get your hands on, the Tom & Jerry Canteen Bag would be it. Measuring 19.5 cm wide and 18 cm high, the bag’s perfectly sized for the weekend out with your girls, with a fully lined interior that’s furnished with 2 card slots and a snap-tab slip pocket for all your bits and bobs. Besides being really easy to use (the zip-around closure goes almost all the way around), the bag is also equipped with a structured top handle and comes with an adjustable shoulder strap, which gives you multiple ways of carrying it.
Besides, the bag is constructed with a faux leather exterior (+1 for being stain and scratch resistant), which is further decorated with Kate Spade’s floral motif and finished with little Jerry looking super happy with his slice of cheese on the back of the bag, while he peeks out of his mouse hole on the front. In other words, it’s the perfect mini bag for the holidays and one that you can bring along with you to your house visits (yes, it will store a good deal of red packets) in the upcoming Lunar New Year. Priced at SGD540, Kate Spade’s Tom & Jerry Canteen Bag, along with several other pieces from the capsule collection, is now available at boutiques islandwide. #happyshopping
