#BAGAHOLICBOY SHOPS: Need A Red Bag For Lunar New Year? Here Are 9…


Red leather bags are always around, but it takes on cultural importance whenever the Lunar New Year rolls around, especially when paired with gold-tone hardware. Believed to be particularly auspicious (which ironically is the reverse for red wallets), here are 9 different styles you can check out now from the major designer houses today.

On the first row (from left to right), your stellar line-up starts with Gucci’s GG Marmont Matelassé Mini Bag (SGD3090) in Hibiscus Red. Crafted from quilted chevron leather complete with an embossed heart at the back, the gold-tone hardware is the literal icing on the cake for those who believe in ‘more is more’.

For those who prefer something a tad larger, the Large Classic Handbag (SGD14,200) from Chanel in burgundy lambskin leather would do the trick for sure. At 30 cm wide by 19.5 cm high, this ‘classic of all classics’ is well-sized for most anything and will even fit a thick wad of red packets, whether you are a giver or a receiver.

Celine’s Small Classic Bag (SGD4600) is another style that you cannot go wrong with, returning in red Box calfskin leather with an adjustable leather strap that also can be removed if you prefer holding it as a clutch. Plus, the silver-tone clasp is a nice, modern touch.

The next row includes the Hourglass Small Handbag (SGD3450) from Balenciaga. A rising favourite thanks to the iconic curvilinear base, this new edition in red shiny crocodile-embossed calfskin is perfect for ladies who love to make a statement.

Loewe’s Goya Accordion Clutch (SGD2990) is exactly as its name suggests, opening to reveal a triple accordion-like interior which can be expanded to fit a tad bit more whenever necessary. Discreet with a touch of gold (on the hardware), this is another sleek option for the minimalist in you.

The Mount (SGD4190) from Bottega Veneta is no stranger to you, and this flirty pink Lollipop hue is extra charming, with a tinge of coral-red undertones, and made even more with its V-shaped flap and chunky gold chain detailing.

Scarlet Red never looked better on Moynat’s Camera Bag (SGD3700), as the casual crossbody was recently updated with a new option in Taurillon Blush leather that’s perfect for fans. Plus, it will double up perfectly as an everyday bag as well.

The Micro Lady Dior (SGD4800) from Dior might be one of the tiniest options of the lot, but it comes jam-packed with signature elements like the D-I-O-R charms and Cannage topstitching on the body. This cherry red colour is also delicate enough without being super in your face, and it works as a great option for fun weekends out as well.

Lastly, the Cassandra Medium Chain Bag (SGD3580) looks set on winning the Saint Laurent fans over with this Rouge Opyum hue in embossed leather. Two roomy compartments and a double curb chain amp up its versatility and function, allowing you to carry the boxy bag in numerous ways.
