If you are of a certain age, this bag would be no stranger to you. Known as the Cité bag (or ‘city’), it was a mainstay style back in the 90s before it was discontinued. And because you can’t keep a good bag down, it’s finally back.
Measuring some 26 cm by 16 cm by 11 cm, it still sports pretty much the same look. From the boxy rectangular shape to the longer-than-usual shoulder handles, there are only two minor cosmetic changes. Firstly, the addition of the leather strap detailing that extends below the zip pocket (and under the bag). The second? The inclusion of metal feet to keep the base off the ground at all times.
On the inside you will find a lining of microfibre, along with another zip pocket, which is always nifty to have. Wear it over your shoulder, or in the crook of your arm, and you’re pretty much set for the day.
Priced at SGD3250, you will find it online via Louis Vuitton’s e-comm site. Or just head down to the boutiques and ask to try it on. Because that’s still the best way to see how it will look/function on/for you.
