Gone are the days when vanity cases were meant to be used solely for beauty products, because the chic top-handle style works equally well as a handbag, roomy enough for daily essentials (from cardholders to wallets, as well as mobile phones and portable chargers) that can all be stored comfortably within.
Now, before the era of ‘mini vanity cases’ came into play, the larger ones were often selected for their size and versatility, and even if you aren’t in the market for any of them right now, it still would be great to have a read to find out what the fuss is all about…
01 – Chanel’s Classic Vanity Pouch (SGD3020) has always been a frontrunner where vanity cases are concerned, with the current #CHANELSpringSummer version coming in buttery soft lambskin detailed with gold-tone CC logo and zips. Measuring 21 cm wide and 15 cm high, the vanity pouch opens to a water-resistant quilted interior, making it easy to do a quick wipe-down at the end of the day.
02 – Next up, the DiorTravel Vanity Case (SGD3700) comes in the elegant blue #DiorPalms motif, truly exemplifying the house’s Toile de Jouy technique to perfection. While the 24 cm by 17 cm bag is sold without a strap, you can get creative by attaching one of your own on the metallic buckles on top, converting it into a crossbody bag to keep your hands free whenever you’re out and about.
03 – Gucci’s GG Marmont Cosmetic Case (SGD1230) is not to be missed if you’re a fan of the brand’s signature matelassé chevron leather. Finished with their signature GG detailing, this stylish case is the most compact of the lot, measuring just 18 cm wide and 13 cm high that makes it cute as a button.
04 – Lastly, Louis Vuitton’s Nice BB (SGD2030) comes decked out in a gradient beige Monogram Giant canvas, part of the ‘Summer by the Pool’ line-up that’s all about bright and vibrant colours for the season. There are several flat pockets on the inside to store cards and notes, and another ‘hidden’ zipped pocket tucked right under the flap that gives it extra points in terms of utility.
