There’s a new Prada tote bag coming to town and it looks like it is set to conquer the hearts of bagaholics! Introducing the latest Prada Bomber Tote Bag, which looks exquisitely stylish in all the right angles.

Let’s take a peek and walk down memory lane as we talk about the Bomber. Oozing the elegance and confidence, the Prada Bomber features a thick and pleated look of the exterior, adding a touch of chic and funk to your overall ensembles.

This latest Prada bag is crafted with Bomber-effect fabric that is made ultra stylish by pairing it over steel hardware. The bomber is famous for the smooth feel and also for its durable material. This means no more babying the bag or continuesly maintaince, and doesn’t that sound like the perfect everyday bag. The Bomber material is also very lighweight and you can stuff your bag without worrying that it will expand like leather. It also boasts the enamel triangle logo, which makes it easier to distinguish from all the other luxury bags out there. Altough it comes with double leather handle, you can also wear it as a shoulder bag.

Aside from these, the Prada Bomber Tote Bag also has a lot to offer when it comes to its interior features. It has three inside pockets, including one with zipper closure to keep your things organized and has one outside pocket with zipper closure.

It measures 24.5 x 15 (L x H) cm and is priced $1100 USD, €950 euro, £820 GBP, ¥144720 JPY via Prada boutiques.

Gucci P/F13 Bamboo Shopper Tote

Other Brands

gucci_pf13-gucci-bamboo-shopper-tote1One of the new bags from Pre-Fall 2013 Gucci Frida Giannini wants you to be lusting over is this: the Gucci Bamboo Shopper Tote. A recently reintroduced icon that’s now become a staple at the Italian house, you’ll be seeing lots more variations in the coming months but for now we’ll just focus on this.

And while the Bamboo Tote isn’t exactly a new shape either (I’ve seen vintage variations of the east-west tote online, including briefcases and totes), the P/F13 Bamboo Tote can be considered Frida’s interpretation of what’s current and now.

gucci_pf13-gucci-bamboo-shopper-tote2Available in a variety of finishes and sizes, the one in simple grained leather stands out the most for me, topped with a pair of curved bamboo handles and stamped with the words ‘Made In Italy By Gucci‘ in vintage script. Measuring 40 cm across by 29 cm for the large one (a smaller one comes in at 34 cm by 21 cm), it also comes with an adjustable/removable shoulder sling which is always a bonus.

Besides Black, you’ll also find it in Dark Red, Light Blue, as well as printed jaguar (how very Frida) and in an exotic python. Prices aren’t yet available, so do stay tuned for more updates.

Saint Laurent Sac De Jour Baby Embellished Leather Lace Purse

Lace is making a comeback. Lately, I have been hearing a lot about lace and how it has been experiencing a renaissance of sorts. The lost art of lace-making has been given new life over the last 5 years or so, with more and more companies discovering just how gorgeous lace can be. When it comes to lace though, I have mostly been seeing it on clothing. It is also starting to become more popular in the bridal scene. But not so much when it comes to handbags.

Sure the occasional formal clutch with a lace overlay pops up here and there, but lace has never been a really popular material for handbags. This doesn’t mean that lace-lovers cannot enjoy a lace like piece. I came across the Saint Laurent Sac De Jour Baby Embellished Leather Tote the other day and thought it was a great example of this. This iconic piece was given a makeover, complete with off-white leather and grommet stud embellishments. But it isn’t the embellishments alone. It is the lace-like pattern they create that gives this piece that lacy look and feel. The overall look is very light and airy and would be perfect for this coming spring season.

Gucci Turnaround Tote


gucci_turnaround-toteAnd the mystery is solved. What I referred to as the I-forgot-its-name tote last Saturday on Instagram, which I spotted at Gucci Paragon, is actually the new Gucci Turnaround Tote that’s part of the Holiday 2014 Gucci collection. Recently launched in Singapore, it is exactly what the name implies, a tote that can be ‘turned around’, or in professional speak, reversed.

Made almost entirely of leather (there’s the GG monogram on one side and a polished, slightly grained surface on the other in either Red or White), it is also extremely structured which keeps it always looking smart, super lightweight which is always a bonus and depending on which size you pick, you can either carry it handheld or over the shoulder.

The only downside? There isn’t a zip on the top, which could be an issue for those iffy about keeping their personals secure when they are out and about. The easy solution? Get a bag organiser to keep everything safe or do what I do and use a smaller drawstring dust bag as my bag-within-the-bag.

Priced at SGD1260, SGD1630 and SGD1870 respectively for the sizes in PM, MM and GM, I was so convinced by how easy it was to use, how fuss-free keeping it clean would be and of course, that gorgeous bright red, that an aunt with her birthday just around the corner will be getting one as a gift soon.

Rafe Macrame Hand-Knot Sam Tote

rafe sam tote

Straw totes are probably one of the most popular accessory items during the summer months. I can certainly see why. They are lightweight, casual, and they just feel “summery”. Whether you use one for the beach or for shopping at the local farmers’ market, a straw tote is something you simply shouldn’t do without. With so many styles to choose from though, this may seem like a daunting task. But I stumbled across a gorgeous straw tote today and I think the search (at least for me) is over. Check out the Rafe Sam Tote!

I think what initially caught my eye was the unusual color combination of this tote. The background is a traditional straw weave in deep navy blue. The overlay, however, consists of an open diamond weave in yellow and sage green leather. These colors are not something I would normally picture together, but after seeing it, I am in head over heels in love! The yellow and sage green pop against the navy blue, giving this piece both texture and depth. I also love the cross charm, complete with a tassel tail. The handles are thin and flexible, making this the ideal piece for toting around all of your summer-time needs. This tote would pair beautifully with everything from jeans and a t-shirt to a floaty skirt and straw hat.
