Over the years, French luxury brand Goyard has quietly expanded its repertoire of bags and leather goods, even unveiling a special catalogue online for you to get a glimpse of selected pieces with all 11 colours (ranging from Black and Black/Tan to special hues like Sky Blue and White) to give you a better idea of how they look.
And because everyone wants to know what they should be spending their money on, here are 5 classic (or standout) designs that have consistently topped the charts in terms of popularity, all of which will be covered below with the latest prices in SGD. Yes, there has been a price increment lately, but if that doesn’t deter you, you should head down to Takashimaya Shopping Centre where their single standalone boutique is in Singapore.
01 – Known by many names, the Alto or the ‘hatbox’ (SGD6890, SGD8610), you can’t deny that this hard-sided case makes for a fancy bag for afternoon tea with the ladies. The top handle is a definite plus for carrying it like a dainty handbag, or you can always opt to attach the strap for a hands-free option.
02 – Next up, the Minaudière trunk (SGD5510, SGD6890) has gained its fair share of fans as well, thanks to the extra leather harness which can be kept on for shoulder carry (that’s where the shoulder sling is attached to), or removed so you get an entirely different look with just the clutch on its own.
03 – One of the newest bags available at Goyard today, the Petit Flot bucket bag (SGD2590, SGD3240) is equal parts charming and functional, with 3 different length adjustments that will give you several ways of wearing it. It’s also designed for easy access (no zips or complicated straps) thanks to the drawstring leather strap, allowing you to reach easily for your contents within.
04 – Who can forget the classic Saint Louis (SGD1770, SGD2210 for the PM size and SGD2070, SGD2590 for GM size)? Quite possibly the most popular tote ever at Goyard, the PM and GM are go-to options loved by men and women alike. Not only does it come in the classic range of 11 colours, but there are also limited-edition versions in special colours from time to time, so keep a lookout whenever you visit the boutique.
05 – Lastly, the Senat Pouch (SGD650 to SGD2340 depending on the size) needs no introduction, a zipped pouch with sizes ranging from mini to the GM size, each serving a different function, of course. The smallest mini size works as an SLG for cards and cash, while the bigger MM and GM sizes can both be handheld clutches whenever you need a simple case for a quick day out.
