Fans of Burberry are genuinely spoilt for choice when it comes to the British luxury brand’s perfectly round Louise Bag. What started as a single design in Burberry’s printed logo graphic has now expanded into a total of 4 different variations. There are two which come in e-canvas, one featuring the brand’s iconic stripes and the other coming in Bridle Brown TB Monogram. The third version comes in full black leather, save for a teeny-tiny logo at the bottom, which is excellent for those who love a minimal-looking piece. The fourth features the large graphic logo on a canvas body, while the fifth (and newest) design would be the Monogram Motif Canvas & Leather Louise Bag (shown above), one that features an oversized TB motif in blue outline, paired with lovely shades of cream (canvas) and white (leather) for a fun summer look.
The bag was named after Queen Victoria’s daughter, Louise, who was an artist and advocate for gender equality, which explains why Riccardo Tisci and the team have designed the bag for both men and women. Measuring 17 cm across, the versatile Louise Bag comes with two zippered compartments for your daily essentials, as well as two interior card slots that are perfect for your ID and go-to credit card. Another plus point? That shoulder strap can be adjusted to a wide range of drop lengths (from 25 cm to 55 cm), so you can sling it easily over the shoulder or carry it across the body.
Priced under the two grand mark (which is honestly the benchmark these days for crossbody bags from luxury houses), you can find the Monogram Motif Canvas & Leather Louise Bag (SGD1790) over at Burberry’s online store. Alternatively, you can head down to Marina Bay Sands, because trying it in person and modelling it in front of the mirror will definitely speed up the decision-making process.
