Saint Laurent Beach Shopping Tote

Categories:Other Brands

I’ve seen this in stores, I’ve seen it online, but why I never featured this earlier still escapes me since it is a pretty functional piece that’s built to last a lifetime.

Simply known as the Saint Laurent Beach Shopping Tote, though I think the name should actually be beach AND/OR shopping since you can use it for both scenarios, it’s officially also one of the handful of bags from Saint Laurent today that you’ll find made almost entirely of thick canvas.

Measuring almost 40 cm in height by 34 cm across, all you get is small bits of leather where the handles are, a magnetic snap button closure and the words 24 Rue de L’Université printed under the Saint Laurent logo (a reference to the French brands’s reinstated Left Bank couture house), which has a slight tinge of irony since the canvas tote is hardly couture to begin with. The thing is, with Hedi Slimane’s departure, we’ll never know the backstory on why these exact words were placed so prominently on a bag like this, but it doesn’t matter anymore either.

Priced at GBP470 online (or around SGD840 after conversion), this unisex vertical tote also comes with a sister that takes on a more horizontal form (wider than it is tall), which means you’ll just need to decide which shape works better for you.

Update: 26 July 2016
For those of us in Singapore, this Beach Shopping Tote will retail for SGD1190, and it’s available at both Saint Laurent at ION Orchard and Marina Bay Sands.

Chanel Makes the Most Luxurious Beach Bag and Towel Set Ever

Categories:Other Brands

The very wealthy are both just like us mortals and not like us at all. They’re like us in that they want to have cute stuff to take to the pool with their friends or on their next beach vacation, but they are not like us in that their next terrycloth beach set might be from Chanel.

The beauty of Chanel’s size is that it can afford to manufacture the kind of fun, idiosyncratic, small-audience pieces that would put a financial strain on a smaller brand. That frees Karl Lagerfeld up to get a little bit funny, and he’s done it with everything from ping pong paddles to surf boards, which fashion obsessives are known to use as home decor. In this case, he’s taking his talents to the beach.

The set, which is part of the brand’s Metiers d’Art 2016 Paris in Rome collection and in stores now, will set you back $1,650 for the towel and tote together. The pair are made of cotton terrycloth patterned to look like classic Chanel tweed, and the material and color variation mean that they’d actually make a pretty functional pool set if you wanted to use them for their intended purpose. If you’re gonna drop the money, you’ll probably end up leaving them safe in your fabulous cabana, though.

The summer is around the corner and that means…

It’s time to invest in a summer bag – one that is easy, comfortable and immune against the sun. You know that leather bags and the sun are not the best combination, right?

The summer bag needs to fulfill some requirements; starting of with ‘light weighed’, ‘easy-to-clean’, ‘stylish’, ‘distinctive’ (important!), ‘great as a beach bag or for picknick’, ‘doesn’t complain when we go on a city tour’.

We think we got it.

Hermes presents the Leopard Beach Bags in different beautiful colors. The brand is again using artful prints like a leopard with jungle-like plants drawing.

Made from cotton, the handles are very comfortable and the bag extremely durable for carrying all your personal items and summer essentials. It’s a like a luxurious tote bag with its timeless design.

The Hermes Leopard Beach Bags come with a removable pouch inside, it’s available in fuchsia, blue and beige. Priced at $2175 USD via Hermes store.
