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.

Miu Miu Leather Totes: The Comeback

Categories:Other Brands

Miu Miu Leather Totes

What a great new shape for Miu Miu! Their entire Spring ’15 collection feels simultaneously nostalgically thrown-back in spirit yet so fresh, so invigorated. Which basically sums up this latest leather tote. There is definitely something familiar about this shape, almost comfortingly so, but it’s hard to articulate. It’s not exactly vintage, and it’s got a slight ’90s vibe, although I can’t quite put my finger on why.

The conclusion is…who cares?! I love it, and when you love something, you don’t always need to get to the root of your affinity. But I will explain it. The tapered top not only sets up a triangular structure, it gives the bag a real sense of distinction. And don’t fret over the possibility of bottlenecking. This tote opens up wide, so that won’t happen here. All that’s left to do is decide whether you want the oversized weave, which actually feels a bit Cole Haan-esque (and not in the greatest way) but does add more textural interest, or to go with smooth, all-black leather for ultimate versatility

Gucci Bamboo Shopper Totes in New Colors

Categories:Other Brands

Gucci-Bamboo-Shopper-Tote-7

The GUCCI Bamboo shopper tote do not need any introduction (especially from me), you see the bamboo collection exist for more than 60 years and is much older than me. So I probably should quietly sit down and let him amuse me with its stories and wisdom.

Okay, presenting the Gucci Bamboo totes in new spring colors – purple, orange, fuchsia, red and blue (the blue version is only available at Gucci, just for your info). Sixty years of refinement is the only evidence you need to verify its craftsmanship; with light fine gold hardware, natural cotton lining, the Gucci signature written on the front and making sure that everyone knows ‘it’s made in Italy’ (Yep, I got the message), it comes with a double bamboo handles.

The interior quite impressive, just let me say: ‘every girl loves things that are neat and structured’, so what can you find inside? Zip and smart phone pockets, zip compartment and snap pocket and a large empty space for your big-size essentials. For those who can’t live without a shoulder strap, that’s included too.

I somehow can fall easily in love with bright and shiny colors, it’s just make fashion more interesting and challenging. Let’s leave our classic black at home tomorrow, who is in? Measuring 13.5 x 8.5 x 6 in inches (W x H x D), at Gucci for $1,890.

Nina Agdal Celine Nano Luggage Tote

Here’s Nina Agdal, Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition cover model and professional bikini-wearer, on the beach in Miami with a charming, two-tone Celine Nano Luggage Tote. Nina’s probably in the area for Miami Swim Fashion Week, which is taking place as we speak. Megs recently gave her own Celine Nano the “Purseonal” treatment, and you can gauge her opinion of this uber-popular mini here.

If you’re wondering what other designer bags celebs are getting a little sandy this summer, feel free to take a look at what all kinds of different celebs carry to the beach. Or if you’re more interested in all things Celine, have a gander at “Celebs and Their Celine Luggage Totes: A Retrospective”, and its very necessary follow-up post, “Celebs and Their Celine Luggage Totes: A Retrospective, Part Two.”

Many Celebrities carry Celine Luggage Totes bags

Categories:Other Brands

Let’s start with the basics: The black leather Celine Luggage Tote was by far the most popular option in Hollywood, and it’s a perfect choice for a busy mom like Jennifer Garner – neutral, roomy, totally versatile. The frenzy over theCeline Luggage Tote has been at a fever pitch for seasons now, and somehow, it shows no signs of abating.

I believe the image is from London Fashion Week, but I could be wrong. At any rate, it’s two women standing near each other, but not together, with two Celine Luggage Tote that are nearly identical, save for their clearly disparate sizes. It’s like the big one birthed the little one. For those of you who are wondering, the little one is a Mini size. And when we say everyone, we mean it. Everyone from serious actresses to Kardashians to pop stars to models (especially models) has some Celine in their closet, and after careful research, here’s what we’ve learned: celebs like their Celinge Luggage Totes to be all or mostly black, they carry them pretty much 24/7, and the original design generally wins out over the crossbody Celine Nano Luggage and the ginormous Celine Phantom Luggage.

At this point, the Fashion Week onslaught from the industry’s media has turned into a furious din of show reviews and Anna Dello Russo pictures that’s starting to drive me just a wee bit off my rocker. I’ll catch up on Monday, I promise.I’m guessing a large, but these things are difficult to gauge from a single photo. The visual appeal of the bag is so contagious, in fact, that it has jumped from the fashion crowd straight to Hollywood. Not every It Bag translates that well to people outside of the industry, but Celine has found a way to catch lightning in a bottle. One can only look at so many street style photos and catwalk detail shots before one’s brain starts to leak out one’s ear. It’s Friday, and I’m going to pretend like fashion doesn’t exist for the next two days.
