Valentino-Rockstud-Spike-Clutch-with-Chain-Bag

Valentino is bringing its A game once more when it comes to making rockstud bags especially with its newest Rockstud Spike Clutch with Chain Bag which looks every bit of a dream edgy bag!

Beautifully and elegantly crafted from crinkle-textured leather, the latest and newest silhouette in Valentino’s Rockstud Spike collection would be this versatile shoulder bag which transitions into a clutch design or vice versa whichever way you want it!

To perfectly complement its luxury tough look, the dark hardware did a great job! We love the quilted matelasse used in this bag that is later on filled with rockstud spike all over for that nice urban feel. A bag fit for the modern royal rebel, this bag proves to be more than just meets the eye with its functionality features.

It has a turn-lock fastening for security purposes and has a detachable chain shoulder strap so you can effortlessly transition it from being a hand bag/ clutch to a shoulder or cross-body bag.

Goyard Saigon

Categories:Other Brands

IMAGE: GOYARD

You asked, I answered. Yes, many of you have been asking recently regarding Goyard’s Saigon in Singapore, and because I haven’t done a post proper on this bag before, here goes. One of the first bags Goyard ever had when they came back into the spotlight, it is also the most reminiscent of Goyard’s trunks, what with its stiff structured body, the wooden lats that run down both sides of the bag and of course, that carved polished wooden top handle.

IMAGE: GOYARD

Available generally in 2 sizes, the PM and the MM which are sized 28 cm by 20 cm and 35 cm by 25 cm respectively, there’s also a newish mini size though I don’t have much info on that at the moment. Mostly covered in Goyard’s now iconic Goyardine coated-canvas with its sides and front flap finished in smooth leather, it’s a very proper bag. Handsome, in fact, something you’ll bring to state dinners and gala soirée if it were the ones that come in full leather, as well as an assortment in exotic skins.

But for the one with the Goyardine canvas, it’s pretty versatile, one that you can have slung over your shoulder (yes, it comes with a shoulder sling too) as you strut your stuff up and down Orchard Road over the weekends. Priced at SGD6210 and SGD8080 for the PM ones in classic and special colours respectively, while the MM in classic colours is priced at SGD7280, all of which you can check out now at Goyard Ngee Ann City.

IMAGE: GOYARD

Sadly though, the Saigon Mini is not available in Singapore, but here’s an adorable image of it anyway. An exact clone of its bigger siblings, the other difference (besides the size) is the absence of the two wooden lats on the front.

LOUIS VUITTON LUXURIOUS ROLLING LUGGAGE

Categories:Louis Vuitton

Louis Vuitton Monogram Eclipse: Travel With Horizon

IMAGE: JSK FOR LOUIS VUITTON

The Horizon, also known as the luxurious rolling luggage designed by Marc Newson for Louis Vuitton, is quite simply a sight to behold inMonogram Eclipse. Basically the Black/Grey rendition of Monogram Canvas(you would know this if you’ve read the first and second posts of this series), you could say it has come full circle as far the Horizon is concerned.

In honour of his late father Louis Vuitton, who started the business making travelling trunks for the crème de la crème of society, Georges Vuitton created and dedicated the Monogram Canvas pattern to him all those years ago. Today, it continues to adorn the luggage pieces of modern travellers, with this being one of them.

Only available in size 55 as far as the Horizon in Monogram Eclipse is concerned, it’s only an ultra-light piece of the luggage, the SGD4250luggage measuring some 55 cm by 39 cm by 21 cm is also the ideal carry-on size for most airlines. Framed by a cane handle that tucks away completely when not in use, the larger than normal handle isn’t big just from a design perspective, it also allows for eased manoeuvrability. And with the 4 compact wheels at the bottom, moving from point to point within the airport (even if you’re in hurry and with a full luggage) would be easy.

IMAGE: JSK FOR LOUIS VUITTON

On the inside you’ll find generous compartments that are also flat, which is possible only because the cane handle is positioned at the sides and not in the middle like most other four-wheeled luggages. Finished with a pull zipper closure padlock system that’s also TSA-approved, this is the perfect carry-on for the executive on the go, shuttling from city to city on an almost weekly basis.

For this, and more pieces from the Monogram Eclipse collection, you can follow this link to have a look. Better yet, pop into Louis Vuitton boutiques across the island, including ION Orchard, Marina Bay Sands and Ngee Ann City to see how tradition and modernity have combined to culminate in the most beautiful effect.

Louis Vuitton has launched an innovative new line of rolling trunks for the 21st century traveler. Imagined by Marc Newson, widely acknowledged as the most influential industrial designer of his generation, the Horizon collection optimizes travel with sophistication and flare. 

Harking back to the original trunks, Horizon is the first four-wheeled case with a completely flat back shell which allows for optimized space. Every detail from the new line exudes innovation and lightness – from the new discreet TSA-approved lock to the most comfortable wheels ever designed by Louis Vuitton, the new trunks are on the cutting edge of travel. A range of special accessories have been created to pair with the luggage. All items are available at Aventura Mall at the end of September.

MEET THE FUTURE 001
The trunk comes in three sizes, mini 50 x 35 x 20 cm, cabin 55 x 39 x 21 cm and maxi 68x 46 x 26 cm.
MEET THE FUTURE 002
The new luggage comes in a variety of prints including: Monogram canvas, Monogram Eclipse, Damier Graphite, Taiga leather and are available in 7 colors all comprised of Epi and in natural cowhide leather.  At a later date an entirely laser engraved monogram titanium trunk will be added to the collection.
MEET THE FUTURE 003
The completely flat back of this Horizon 55 in Monogram Canvas provides for ultimate travel ease while four miniature wheels engineered to be as silent as possible offer 360 degrees of movement.
MEET THE FUTURE 004
The ultra-slim aluminum 3-digit combination zip-pull lock system is TSC approved and integrated with a single zipper pull, designed to reduce weight and avoid the usual stress points with double zip pulls in luggage.
MEET THE FUTURE 006
Make a statement with this Horizon 50 in Coquelicot, ideal for shorter trips.
MEET THE FUTURE 005

Travel in style with this Horizon 55 in Monogram Eclipse, which offers surprisingly large interior capacity for a cabin-friendly bag.


Louis Vuitton has collaborated with feted industrial design Marc Newson on a new range of rolling luggage trunks perfect for the 21st century traveller. Pictured: the new luggage in Louis Vuitton's Damier Graphite pattern covering


Louis Vuitton is launching an innovative new range of rolling trunks for the 21st century traveller, designed by Wallpaper* Power Lister and internationally renowned industrial designer Marc Newson.

Its core is moulded as a slim and elastic, shock-proof mesh matrix of self-reinforced polypropylene composite. To achieve the greatest lightness possible, Vuitton’s celebrated Monogram canvas has been slimmed down 50 per cent without compromising its original characteristics.

Unlike most rolling trunks, the extendable cane, engineered in lightweight anodised aluminium, has been relocated to the outside, adding structure and strength and removing bulky bumps and ridges from the interior, allowing for more packing space. A new transversal side hinge is built into the structure of the trunk, and the three-digit combination zip-pull lock system – with a single zipper pull – is designed to reduce weight and avoid the usual stress points of double zip pulls.

The new trunk comes in three sizes: mini (50 x 35 x 20 cm), cabin (55 x 39 x 21 cm) and maxi (68 x 46 x 26 cm). All three sizes are available in the classic Monogram canvas, Monogram Eclipse, Damier Graphite, Taiga leather and a rainbow of seven colours of Epi leather.

Newson and Vuitton worked rigorously to achieve some impressive stats: 36 litre capacity for the cabin size – an increase in internal volume of 13 per cent compared to a similar sized trunk – and a weight of a mere 2.7kg for the mini version and just 3kg for the cabin size. Development took around 18 months, although frequent flier Newson says he's ‘probably spent 20 years designing these things in my head, long before I knew that I was going to be doing this for Louis Vuitton’.

‘I think it’s safe to say that we’re striving to break new ground in terms of developing a product which is one of the lightest in the market, and from a technical perspective is one of the most rigorously designed and engineered,' explains Newson. 'I’m obsessive about packing everything into a bag of a certain size, which is why it was so important for me to design a product that could tick all of those boxes and be the perfect piece of luggage for a person like me, [who] won’t travel with anything more than is absolutely necessary.'

To accompany the launch, the French maison will offer shoppers who purchase their cases a 48 hour after-sales repair service in 14 global cities, which will also be integrated into the Louis Vuitton travel app.

Louis Vuitton has just launched the “Horizon” collection.  Designed and inspired by Marc Newson, widely acknowledged as one of the most influential industrial designers of his generation, Horizon is “Travel In Style” with a 4-wheeled cabin luggage, which offers surprisingly large interior capacity and feather like lightness.
Exceedingly practical and versatile, Horizon is the first four-wheeled case with a completely flat back shell, of which the storage space inside has been optimised thanks to the ingenious design. The object, whose appearance reveals at first glance a small suitcase in its simplest form, is actually a small jewel of technology. It took no less than eighteen months of development and filing of three patents. Every detail exudes quality, sleek styling and lightness: the discreet, secure lock, the smallest, quietest wheels possible, and a dedicated connected service within the LV Pass app (best addresses in the Louis Vuitton City Guide, personalised after-sales service, care advice, etc.)
Horizon exists in a Cabin size and a mini cabin version; it is available in the famous Louis Vuitton Monogram canvas, Monogram Eclipse, Damier Graphite, Taiga leather, in natural cowhide leather and a rainbow of 7 colours of Epi leather.
Marc Newson says “The process of travelling tomorrow could be a little more elegant and a little more seamless and a little more enjoyable.  I think the market has a real need for this type of product, both very technical and very sophisticated from a functional point of view. We set to work and we ended up with a result that has no equivalent on the market.


Travel is an integral part of my life both for work and pleasure. I have been in the market for new carry-on luggage for quite some time now. We have been using the Tumi line for the last couple of years, but packing and planning, especially for longer trips has been somewhat frustrating with my Tumi suitcases. I will explain why in detail now.

Obviously as PurseBop is my life, my laptop is almost always with me. When traveling, easy access to my laptop whether it be for quick removal at TSA or in-flight use is imperative. Now unlike most people that carry a laptop, I choose NOT to physically carry my computer in my hand or personal bag. Illogical…well maybe? But having my laptop in my suitcase makes the most sense for me. I am not leaving home without one of my favorite handbags, and as of late it is either a Birkin or Kelly bag. Since neither my B nor K is going to carry my laptop, it has to go in my carry-on suitcase. My Tumi carry-on does not have an outside pocket, so just imagine my frustration at TSA unzipping the entire suitcase to remove the laptop – or even more of a nightmare, trying to take out the laptop in-flight!

Global Entry/TSA pre-check has taken care of all domestic headaches, but I travel extensively internationally, in which case the TSA pre-check benefits no longer apply. The laptop must be removed and placed in a tray for X-Ray.

Ideally, my carry-on should have an exterior pocket that can accommodate my laptop and enough interior space for either a quick get away/light weekend trip amount of clothing. If I’m taking a longer trip, my carry-on should have enough interior space for all my additional handbags (of course, I make use of my efficient nesting technique (Read: Bag Nesting – How to Travel with Handbags). Since I never check-in any handbags, they must all fit in my carry-on luggage.

Whether I am traveling alone, or with Mr. PurseBop is an important factor that dictates my carry-on contents. If alone, my carry-on must independently meet all my needs. If traveling together with two carry-ons, there’s a little more leeway (which essentially means more space for me, LOL).

The search for a set of new carry-on luggage was on the back burner until the release of the new Louis Vuitton rolling luggage launch. You’ll quickly see why these new LV suitcases excited me!

Starting from the fashion house’s early days, Louis Vuitton was a malletier that produced custom luggage, like their iconic trunk suitcases, for the aristocrats and nobility among Europe. LV continues to live on as a luggage legend with the introduction of their new Rolling Luggage line by Marc Newson.

The Newson Luggage collection is a luxury traveler’s dream come true. Aesthetically, the luggage pieces in this collection are sleeker and more modern than past releases. In terms of functionality though, the New Luggage Collection is by far Louis Vuitton’s most well-designed and well-built set of suitcases to date.

Marc Newson is an influential industrial designer who has played a role in creating everything from furniture, household objects, bicycles, cars, and even commercial aircraft. Newson’s breadth of knowledge about object usefulness and practicality is definitely evident in the Rolling Luggage collection.

Designing the perfect suitcase can be tricky. With a lot of luggage, the extendable handle is often positioned in a way that obstructs the interior of the suitcase, which means some items can’t lay flat and you aren’t truly using your space in the most efficient way possible.

With Newson’s collection, the extendable handle of the suitcase has been relocated to the outside and runs from the bottom to the top of the luggage, which means there are no awkward bumps and ridges in the interior space. This is a 4-wheeled suitcases, which allows for more mobility when walking through the airport.  Other new features include a three-digit combination zip-pull TSA lock system, which reduces weight and causes less tension than a double zip system.

Newson meticulously designed these suitcases to be user friendly, lightweight, and hassle-free.

The new, hard-bodied rolling suitcases, the “Horizon” model,  come in 2 sizes:

  • Mini (50 x 35 x 20 cm)
  • Cabin (55 x 39 x 21 cm)

Available materials include Monogram canvas, Monogram Eclipse, Damier Graphite, Taiga leather, and Epi leather.

Prices

Suitcase Model Price in USD
Horizon 50 $2,660
Horizon 55 $3,100

Interior of the bag is completely flat to maximize space.

After looking at the pictures of the new suitcases and reading the product descriptions, you can clearly see that there are still no exterior pockets on these suitcases. You may be wondering…wait a minute, PurseBop what’s all the fuss about? Don’t you NEED an exterior pocket? What about your laptop?

Well…even with this dilemma, new LV suitcases did manage to join our luggage collection!

Hermes-Kelly-Flag-Wallet

Everything-limited is certainly worth chasing, like the Hermes Kelly Flag Wallet. We were told that only 12 pieces were available in each store.

The Kelly Wallet is one of Hermes’s Classic accessories and needs no introduction – the beautiful Kelly Lock in the center is what we’re all craving for. The Flag Wallet edition is in bi-color blue and black or in bi-color red and burgundy.

The purpose of this post is to give you more details about this beauty. First, it’s covered in Epsom Calfskin. The interior is the same as the original Kelly Wallet, it features 12 credit card slots, 2 pockets for bills, central zip purse for change with Kelly Lock pull-tab. This bag is great as an evening clutch or a long wallet.

Measuring 4.5’ x 7.7’ inches, priced at $3650 USD via Hermes boutique.

Hermes-Kelly-Flag-Wallet-2


Never carried, this Hermès Kelly Long Flag Wallet is absolutely pristine with the protective plastic intact on the hardware.  The limited edition style is very collectible in a combination of Flamingo and Coral Epsom leather.  Known for its ease of use, functionality, and understated chic panache, the Kelly Long is both practical and beautiful.

Textured and durable Flamingo Epsom leather has a Coral center block and interior.  Accented with sophisticated Palladium twist lock belted closure.  Gusseted sides allow for easy management.  The interior is outfitted with twelve card slots, a central zippered coin compartment with padlock pull and multiple currency slots.     Made in France.  Blind stamped Q within a square.   Protective felt and Hermès box included.

Women’s Hermès Purses and Wallets

There’s something empowering behind owning a luxury made item. Whether it’s a flowing gown or a wallet that remains hidden in a bag, that feeling is present in every single item. Hermes has been the premier couture house in France ever since it was founded in 1837. The brand’s attention to detail, intrinsic designs and creative vision are executed flawlessly in every piece. When looking for wallet, Hermes is your trusted brand in elegance and style that will last a lifetime. From flawless materials to stunning hardware nothing quite compares to what Hermes brings forth with each one of their unique designs.

Hermes Kelly Wallet

I am always on the hunt for the perfect wallet because my wallet is the most important item in my bag (sometimes more than the bag itself)! I actually spend more time choosing my wallets than my handbags because there are so many conditions to be met, but today, the hunt for THE wallet is finally over. The latest style from Hermes, the Kelly Long Money Holder or Ligne Kelly (I prefer to call it the Kelly Wallet/Clutch) is the answer to my dreams! It is 7 inches wide (18cm, half the length of a 35cm birkin) and may also be used as a clutch, nothing like a two for one to get me excited! (More after the jump!)


I went through my list of requirements: chic style (it’s Hermes, it’s a Kelly, need I say more?), a color that will endure daily abuse (etoupe is the perfect shade of taupe gray that won’t show dirt or stains), adequate credit card/ID slots(12- I only use two credit cards but seem to have a dozen of other ‘cards’- ID cards for my son and I, insurance card, prescription card, membership cards, VIP cards to clubs, Gym card, Yoga card- the list is endless!), space for cash (two slots, you can fit a passport in one of them!), foreign currency/checks/receipts (there are two pockets behind the credit card slots which will fit everything from Chinese RMB to the Euro), and functional coin pocket (with an adorable miniature Hermes lock as the zipper pull which actually cinched the deal for me, who else but me would buy a wallet purely because the zipper pull is so cute!?!?).

Made of ultra durable and lightweight Chevre Mysore (Goatskin), the Kelly Ligne is the best Hermes wallet I have ever owned. My Hermes Dogon and Bearn wallets lack sufficient card slots and they do not close properly when the coin pockets are full. The Kelly clasp allows me to stuff as much as I want without worrying about closing it! Plus I love being able to open it and look down to see everything I have in there at one glance. The best part, though, is its double function as a clutch (I put my cell in there and it fits!) and you don’t have to worry about a wallet for your credit cards or cash because it’s already built in! There is a wait list for the Kelly Ligne wallet so you must call your Hermes SA immediately. It is available in multiple colors but I absolutely love the etoupe, it is so chic and sophisticated. At Hermes Boutiques worldwide.

Each year, Hermes changes the leather and exotic skins you may order from depending on availability. Here are the skins available this year if you are one of the lucky ones to be on a permanent list.

EXOTICS

Porosus crocodile from Australia– Most commonly found on Northern shores of Australia, New Guinea and Indonesia. Hermes does not glaze the Porosus croc skins so they will never peel. This skin is polished with an agate stone and the skin has to lay flat under the machine so once it is made into a bag, you will never be able to polish it again! I’ve ordered mine in Graphite (it turns gray, black or brown depending on the light) and am anxiously waiting it’s arrival. The Rouge 95 is also amazing and gorgeous!

Niloticus crocodile from Africa– the ever popular matte croc is rich and sumptuous. (All crocs have to be at least 10 years old to meet Hermes standards)

Mississippi Alligator– the best ‘gator skin in the world is from the US.

Lizard from Africa– Available in size 25cm or smaller due to the small size of lizards.

Ostrich from South Africa – Hermes uses the most incredible ostrich skins with flat quills. My White ostrich Kelly is from the ’60s, older than me, and is still flawless.

LEATHERS

Veau Swift– Veau means calf in French, the word after it is usually the way the calf skin has been treated and/or stamped. This is a soft and sturdy calf skin.

Veau Togo – One of the most popular skins from female calf skin, tumbled and printed. I was told it is being phased out, what a shame as I just love Togo!

Veau Box – A stiff calf skin that wears to a beautiful patina but scratches easily.

Veau Epsom – Calf skin that has a smoother grain and is very stiff, I like this for the white Hermes bags.

Troika Calf hair– A delicate and gorgeous skin but it will wear around the edges. Not the most durable.

Vache Liege– Vache means cow in French- you’ll see that cow skin is also thicker than calf skin. Liege is the way it is treated and stamped.

Vachette Crispee Fjord – Cow skin in a heavy and looser texture.

Chevre Mysore– Goatskin is becoming increasingly difficult to find at Hermes quality so chances are you won’t be able to order one this year so if you see one ready made at the boutique, grab it!

Taurillon Clemence – The softest and most durable of skins made of Bull leather. The grain is looser than the Veau skins.

Buffle– Buffalo skin is as tough as you can get. This is usually used for luggage.

This is it for orders made in 2008. I told myself I would not order any more leather Hermes bags and would focus on exotics but couldn’t resist ordering the Taurillon Clemence in Olive. The color is so urban and cool! If I have time later, I will post another entry on the colors available in each skin.

A serious Hermes collector does not merely buy birkins. There are so many delectable items to be had and treasured. I bought a photo album and journal in Blue Jean Veau togo when my son was born, I’ve been keeping the journal and album with all of his “firsts” and will give both to him when he has his own child. My own Hermes bag collection consists of Birkins, Kelly bags, mini Kelly pochettes, the Lindy, several wallets, and a couple of vintage bags in a mix of exotics and leathers. I also collect Hermes enamel bangles, belts and scarves. (Forgot to mention JPG’s Hermes ready-to-wear are funky classics that I adore, I especially love the silk tops and crocodile platform shoes). Yes, I am sick and my obsession runs deep but Hermes is the only luxury brand that does not lose its value (even Chanel does not hold its value once it’s left the boutique), in fact Hermes bags increase in value with time so at least I am not squandering away my child’s inheritance! Actually, I view my Hermes collection as heirlooms to be passed down to my future daughter or granddaughters.
