Sit with us, bag a seat.
She does not judge when you’ve put on weight, gotten a bad tan, or come out of a bad relationship. She is your cheerleader during your job interview, a reliable travel companion as you see the world, and a trusted keeper of secrets. She defines and completes your style statement. Whether she is your workhorse bag, celebratory trophy, or special occasion clutch, you know exactly what each bag in your wardrobe means to you.
Some of us buy bags based on love at first sight. Those of us who rationalise our purchases may choose based on design, function, brand, and the totally legit cost-per-wear considerations. This Spring, we’ve curated 9 beautiful bags of the season, casting the spot light on the special features of each bag, and showing you how they look – as-worn and sitting pretty. Because we value diversity in fashion, the selected styles are as varied as your tastes and lifestyles. So come sit with us, and let’s talk bags.
If you have just joined us, the chair is held by the Louis Vuitton Dauphine backpack today.
The original Louis Vuitton Dauphine bag (in classic Monogram canvas) was first produced in the 1970s. Inspired by the style, Artistic Director Nicolas Ghesquière reimagined the historical classic model for the Maison’s Cruise 2019 Collection. The new Dauphine bag features an updated metallic LV closure, hexagonal chain strap, and an adjustable leather strap that can be worn two ways. I particularly like the combination of the classic and the reverse monogram, which is truly a modern twist on the House signature motif. The successful uptake sees the bag returning in the Spring-Summer 2019 collection, in different fabrications, sizes, and shapes (belt bag!). The range also expanded to include shoes that bear the “new Dauphine” LV buckle.
This Spring-Summer 2020, Ghesquière has reinterpreted the timeless Dauphine bag as an on-the-go backpack, with functional features like adjustable straps, and a secure magnetic lock. The Louis Vuitton Dauphine backpack retails for SGD 4,000.
