Remember how Comme des Garçons’ Kraft Paper PVC Tote stole the hearts of fashion-obsessed folk back in the day? It came in a ‘clever’ paper bag design furnished with a PVC outer coating, fully lined with a canvas material that made it sturdy enough as an everyday tote bag. Today, the CDG family of totes has expanded to include new designs season after seasons, such as the Multicolour version made to look like your favourite IKEA shopper and the hot favourite collaboration with Gucci that was only available in limited quantities worldwide.
Recently, Comme des Garçons ventured into simplified versions crafted from lightweight PVC. These tote bags can be easily folded when not in use or kept within your other handbags in case you need a handy tote for grocery shopping or when you’re out running errands. The size is pretty decent as well, measuring 36 cm by 36 cm that’s a perfect square when viewed from the front, guaranteed to hold all your bits and bobs with ease. Each tote comes with black leather handles that have a drop length of approximately 16 cm, which means you can hold it easily within the palm of your hands, or slide your arm through if you prefer a hands-free look.
Comme des Garçons is known for their tongue-in-cheek designs, evident in the Doughnuts & Cupcakes print that comes in turquoise green on one side, and a deep purple on the other. Priced at SGD118 each, you will find the Doughnuts & Cupcakes PVC Tote available at MRPORTER, which offers free shipping to Singapore. Do note what while the site has just recently resumed operations, orders might still take a little longer to reach you. Do act fast though, because these totes always fly off the shelves the moment they launch.
