PHOTO COURTESY OF RSVP PARIS
If you’re all about classic good looks with a timeless silhouette, RSVP Paris is a brand to have on your radar. The Parisian design studio, known for marrying tradition and modernity, offers a selection of leather accessories, from bags and cardholders to luggage tags, which are all focused on French savoir-faire.
One of its creations that you’ll want to RSVP to is the Low Five bag. Inspired by the Veckla vase designed by Swedish artist Stig Lindberg for the ceramics manufacturer Gustavsberg in the 40s, the bucket bag is one chic carrier that encompasses form and function at a really good price.
Crafted entirely in leather on the outside and lined with suede microfibre internally, the bag measures 21 cm by 24 cm by 9.5 cm, and features four side pockets that ‘encircle’ the main bucket bag. The bag also comes with its own drawstring closure, great for those who prefer a tad more privacy away from prying eyes.
Finished with brass hardware plated in yellow gold, the carrier comes with an adjustable shoulder strap, and you can wear the Low Five across the body or over the shoulder for added versatility.
Embossed with the brand’s RSVP logo at the base of the bag and detailed with a small RSVP gold stud in the middle of the bag, each Low Five bag is based on the same principle of limited editions as the brand’s other creations. Only 500 pieces of each colour are available, each hot-stamped with a small serial number on the front right pocket.
And while you can’t choose which serial number you get, you can always make the bag all the more special by personalising it with a set of initials that will sit on the strap. Simply hit customise when making your order online and you’ll be able to add a maximum of three letters that will be embossed in 22k gold.
To tempt you even further, you can choose from grained or smooth calfskin leathers, with classic colours such as Black, Cognac and Forest for your choosing. Pre-orders are also currently open for soon-to-launch hues including Chocolate and Sand.
Better yet, it comes priced at SGD877, which is a great price for a bag that comes in full leather these days. Available to shop over at RSVP Paris’ online store right now, there’s also complimentary shipping to Singapore. Or if you’re jetting off to a VTL country soon, you can check out the Low Five bucket bag in the flesh at the brand’s stores in either Paris or Seoul.
