Zatchels + Hello Kitty Polka Dot Saddle

Categories:Other Brands

zatchels_hello_kitty_polka-dot-saddleIt’s time for your weekly dose of cutesy, and for those looking a bag that’s small, fun and affordable, this officially licensed Zatchels and Hello Kitty Polka Dot Saddleshould do the trick.

While this isn’t exactly new, I thought it would be good to feature this in case anyone missed it previously. And with all the doom and gloom in the world lately, the iconic mouthless cat should bring a smile to most of your faces. Priced at just GBP65 online via Zatchels for the small one (23.5 cm by 19 cm), and GBP75 for the large (29.5 cm by 22 cm), it’s a keeper as far as Hello Kitty fans are concerned.

Check this out, along with more saddles (and satchels) in different designs and sizes. Zatchels also ships internationally, so there’s really no reason not to.

Loewe + Junya Watanabe Collection

Categories:Other Brands

loewe_junya_watanabe_amazona-collection5Here’s a quick run-down of the next Loewe collection that has already created quite a lot of buzz since its runaway debut in Tokyo last month. While it’s not going to be officially released for sale for another few months, you can, however, ‘pre-order’ the bags online now if you’d like.

A collaboration with Japanese fashion wunderkind Junya Watanabe, it marries the best of both brands, Loewe’s expertise in leather and Junya’s love of denim, resulting in RTW, bags and accessories that feature both leather and denim.

loewe_junya_watanabe_amazona-collection2Take for instance the trio of pouches and clutches that you’ll be able to reserve now that range in size from 12 cm to 21 cm across. Priced at SGD450, SGD550 and SGD750for sizes coin pouch, the medium pouch and the large pouch respectively, you’ll find it all leather on one side, the other, a patchwork of denim courtesy of Junya Watanabe.

loewe_junya_watanabe_amazona-collection1Because no Loewe collaboration is complete without an Amazona or two, you’ll find a total of 6 variations in this line-up. Besides the Amazona Corto (35 cm by 18 cm,SGD3390) and the Amazona Alto (35 cm by 27 cm, SGD3690) in Blue Denim, you’ll also find the Amazona (35 cm by 22 cm, SGD3590) and the Amazona 24 Hour (44 cm by 28 cm, SGD4190) in Black Denim, which is the one that’s shown above and also the one I’m lusting over at the moment.

loewe_junya_watanabe_amazona-collection4Here’s the Amazona Corto in Blue Denim that’s no less shabby if you ask me.

loewe_junya_watanabe_amazona-collection3Check out Loewe online for the rest of the bags (yes, there’s an Amazona in full leather as well, shown above, along with a vertical tote) and put your name down to reserve a piece or two if you’re interested. Or head down to Loewe Marina Bay Sands or Ngee Ann City and do it in person.

Inspired by Greece’s Hellenic Heritage: Zeus + Dione Attiki

Categories:Other Brands

Zeus + Dione Attiki Bag

Before today, I had never heard of Zeus + Dione handbags. But when I saw the Zeus + Dione Attiki Tasseled Bag on Net-A-Porter, I figured I should do a little investigating in to this designer. According to their biography, Zeus + Dione celebrates Greek tradition through a combination of craftsmanship and contemporary design. They are renowned for their collaboration with skilled artisans and local workshops. I could have probably guessed that. Zeus and Dione are pretty well-known names in Greek mythology. From what I can see though, there is a lot more to this brand than its name.

Inspired by Greece’s rich Hellenic heritage, Zeus + Dione’s Attiki handbag is named after a neighborhood in Athens.

When I look at the Zeus + Dione Attiki Tasseled Bag, I cannot help but marvel in its simplistic beauty. The shape of this bag really calls to me. The structured shape and sharp lines make this bag feel very sophisticated. Yet there is also a bit of a playful side thanks to the large tassel dangling from underneath. I love the little details too like the waxed thread stitching and wide shoulder strap. They really show the care that was put into making this piece. The plum (reddish brown) color is gorgeous too. It would be perfect for fall!

Kapok + Teddyfish Limited Edition Totes

Categories:Other Brands

kapok_teddyfish_limited-edition-totesWhile Kapok needs no introduction (you’ll find them at Robinson’s Orchard, TANGS Orchard and most recently, their very own flagship at the National Design Centre, where they have the sharpest curations of indie designer merchandise around), Teddyfish might draw a few blanks. Established in 2010 in France, they work primarily with cotton canvas, with a keen focus on having most everything they make by hand, producing only small quantities and creating functional everyday objects, resulting in pieces that are built to last, robust, yet simple.

Put them both together and you’ll get the Kapok + Teddyfish Limited Edition Totes, a pair of handsome bags that come hand-printed with leaves, said to be those from the kapok tree, which is where the Hong Kong-based indie emporium gets its name from.

Measuring 38 cm by 38 cm (it’s almost square in shape), the cotton canvas tote comes printed with the leaf motif on one side along with the single snap button in red, now a Teddyfish signature. Use it with or without its additional shoulder sling, you’ll also find a zip pocket in the interior, which is always useful. Priced at HKD2990 (aroundSGD478/USD385 after conversion) and available in 2 colours (Forest Green, Navy Blue), you could just buy it online via Kapok where international shipping is free.
