With the Lunar New Year just around the corner, it is time to take it up a notch with #BAGAHOLICBOYSHOPS, with not 1, not 2 but 8 bags and SLGs to help you usher in the Year of the Rat in style. Why red, you ask? It is THE colour that signifies prosperity as far as the Chinese are concerned, and these 8 all come in a fiery red that will get you all geared up for the new year, paired with shiny hardware for #maximumhuat in the coming year ahead.
Starting it all off with SLGs, the Small Pouch (SGD700) from Chanel that comes with a handy top zip closure that’s great for keeping coins and cash safely secured within. Celine’s Medium Strap Wallet (SGD940) has remained a cult favourite ever since Phoebe Philo was at the helm of the brand, and this version in full red gives a bright and bold pop of colour that will never get lost in your bigger bag.
Then there’s the In-The-Loop To Go Pouch from Hermès, a nifty little number that’s perfect when you’re on the go, priced at SGD2850. Lastly (as far as SLGS are concerned anyway), the house fave Zippy Coin House (SGD830) from Louis Vuitton that’s rendered in Monogram Empreinte in Scarlett that’s super lush.
Moving on to the bags, this list comprises a pretty wide range, such as the VLOGO Grainy Calfskin Pouch (USD1045) from Valentino’s online site that’s essentially a two-in-one. Lift the magnetic closure, and you will find a zipped change purse tucked within, which you can even take out and use on its own for the everyday. Then there’s Balenciaga’s Sharp S Satchel Chain (SGD2290), their modern take on a sling bag complete with vintage logo and thick gold hardware sling chain.
And if you would like to go even bigger, the classic Lady Dior (SGD5500) in Cherry Red Cannage and Saint Laurent’s Sunset Medium (SGD3390) in Eros Red will do the trick for most. Either bag is sufficiently sized to hold a good day’s worth of essentials and offers varied ways of carrying depending on the function and occasion. The Lady Dior is a sleek and elegant top handle bag that’s perfect for an afternoon tea or a formal evening dinner, while the Sunset is known for its easy-to-use slinky chain strap, which can be adjusted up and down as you please. What’s your pick?
