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.
We would like to start the Boxyz conversation with the inspirations Creative Director Paul Andrew drew on, when he created the new house icon. He shared:
“Selecting a handbag that will be with you every day is an intensely personal choice. So, when I set out to create a bag worthy of carrying the most essential and cherished items in a modern woman’s life – as well as becoming one of those items – I started by asking the many important women in my life what they care about most in a bag. Every response was as different and diverse as the women who shared them, but there were some common themes; privacy, convenience, strength, beauty and boldness. The Boxyz is designed to answer these needs down the last letter – a portable and precious safe space crafted with Ferragamo’s heritage expertise.”
To that end, the Boxyz is materialised with a unique-to-each-bag lock and key – think personal portable treasure chest – with functional efficiency of the two compartments, one zippered for security, one open for convenience. Choose from three proportioned sizes, (17.5 x 9 x 17.5 cm, 22 x 10 x 20 cm, or 27 x 11.5 x23 cm), featuring both top-handle and adjustable (and removable) shoulder-strap.
For the cognoscenti, the signatures of Salvatore Ferragamo, be it the Gancini-shaped top-handle and clasp closure, to the distinctive chisel detail at each bottom corner of the front flap constructed and crafted by Salvatore Ferragamo artisans are proud nods to the heritage of the Italian house.
When the boxyz was launched last year, it was first made available in ten colours and four materials – calf, tweed, ostrich and lizard – followed shortly afterwards by special print-lined editions.
The new Boxyz for the season presents a precious fabrication, where knots are created by hand weaving nappa leather for a “cord” effect to resemble wicker on the body of the bag. A special touch to finish is the varnished tonal hardware. The Ferragamo Boxyz retails at SGD4,450.
