Gucci Lilith Top Handle Bag

Categories:Other Brands

If you asked me what bag at Gucci today still epitomises the past and the present as far as their handbags are concerned, this would be it. Those familiar with the Italian luxury house’s bags of yore will find the bamboo handle familiar, a Gucci signature that’s still keep alive and well under the auspices of sitting Creative Director Alessandro Michele.

Having seen the process for myself when I visited their bag production facility in the outskirts of Florence some years back, I can tell you this much. As simple as it might look, each bamboo handle still has to go through hours and hours of skilled craftsmanship, a single artisan crouched over an open flame as he exposes the bamboo rods to heat, slowly bending them bit by bit before it takes its eventual curved shape. Layers upon layers of a special varnish are also applied to give it that shine, as well as to keep it in an almost pristine condition for years to come.

From the handle down, however, and it’s a different story. Obviously inspired by vintage references, Michele draws upon a new icon of house, the snake, and uses it to great effect on the Lilith. Named so because it’s believed to be the name of Adam’s first wife in midrashic literature (you know how the story ends) with the snake tempting both of them.

But beyond the name, the bag is also a beautiful example of vintage-chic that’s big at Gucci these days, the bag sold with two slings, one of leather, the other in grosgrain. The perfect bag for ladies-who-lunch, it also comes in at least 2 sizes at the moment, a Small (26 cm by 24 cm) and a Medium (33 cm by 22 cm) with both sizes now available at Gucci boutiques in Singapore, including the newly-opened flagship at ION Orchard.

Chanel Pre-Spring 2017 Flap Bag With Top Handle

Categories:Other Brands

IMAGE: CHANEL

You know the problem with bags these days? Innovative, new and sometimes strange. Which, to be frank, isn’t all bad, but when you’re faced with the decision of what to spend your hard-earned money on, it’s not necessarily the best thing, especially if you can only carry that beautifully-odd-yet-quirkily-fun bag for less than 6 months because it is just too much of a seasonal piece.

The solution? Look for something that’s classic and simple, much like this quilted number from Chanel’s Pre-Spring 2017 collection. Crafted out of soft lambskin leather, there’s nothing more reassuring than a beautifully-quilted piece that’s been given a minor reinterpretation of sorts. Shaped like a trapezoid with rounded sides, there’s the metal-laden top handle that’s quite vintage-chic, along with a long leather sling which can be used on the bag or completely removed if you prefer a cleaner look.

Measuring 24 cm by 14 cm, the SGD6190 leather Flap Bag isn’t exactly entry-level as far as its price is concerned, but for something you can use for years and years to come (as opposed to just 6 months) it is probably worth the money, don’t you think? Just do the math.

Available in Dark Blue as well as Black (shown above), you can check it out now at Chanel boutiques in Singapore as we move from the Cruise 2017collection into the Pre-Spring 2017 line-up.

And for those who prefer something that’s a tad more squarish in shape, there’s also this, a 25 cm by 18.5 cm beauty in white lambskin leather (SGD6410) that’s also pretty divine. Truly.
