Take your mind off the global chaos and feed your fashion obsession for a hot minute.
As the crisis keeps us on our toes, it might be helpful to have a reminder that your hands are for more than just Lady Macbeth levels of hand washing. In a parallel universe, you could be toting a new arm candy find. Frivolous? Perhaps. But if you’re feeling a little off-kilter from the news, a smidge of fashion escapism can be a much-needed distraction. Let’s take our mind off the doom and gloom for a second by jumping into these new designer bags, fresh off the Spring Summer 2020 collections.
Chloe Daria Bag
Chloe strikes again with another chic beauty that might well be its next cult classic (remember Nile, Faye and Drew?). New grain and shiny calfskin, a braided top handle and an Art Deco-inspired jacquard inner lining are the Daria’s key features. Teamed with classy gold hardware, the result is a sophisticated and structured number that wouldn’t look out of place on the arms of a boss lady.
Tory Burch Kira and Fleming Bag
Tory Burch has re-launched its Singapore e-shop and the latest Spring Summer 2020 drops are on it too. We’re saying a resounding yes to florals for spring if they look as good as these gems – and how could they not when they’re inspired by the one and only Princess Diana? Channel your inner fashion icon by taking home these elegant designer bags with timeless silhouettes and English garden-inspired florals.
Loewe Balloon Bag
Say hello to the bucket bag’s rounder cousin. Loewe’s Spring Summer 2020 Balloon Bag is an update on its original debut last year, and we find the raffia iteration particularly fetching. Maybe it’s our island vacation dreams calling, but what’s not to like about a roomy, resort-style bag that you can chuck all your essentials into?
While we’re confined to our abodes for now, there’s no reason not to prep for the day when we can (finally) go on weekend adventure or a shopping spree with the pals. For this endeavour, look to Fendi’s latest Sunshine shoppers, which sport a tortoiseshell effect on the handle and FF gold metalware. You just have to decide between the classic Vichy Pequin fabric or the brown leather stamped with a Fendi Roma motif.
Bottega Veneta BV Banana Bag
We haven’t been sporting hobo designer bags for a while and Bottega Veneta is out to change that. If slouchy carriers tickle your fancy, the BV Banana Bag will make you happy. Intricately woven by hand, the paper calf shoulder strap is comfortably chunky, with the signature triangular buckle to tie it all in. Whether the internet will ditch its obsession with The Chain Pouch for this number remains to be seen…
Burberry Pocket, TB and Lola Bag
Burberry has a load of new launches you’ll want to bag. The Pocket Bag is an overriding fave: A canvas and leather beauty inspired by the brand’s archival designs. We’re digging its equestrian and military influences that make this functional yet edgy. And if you’ve lusted after the TB and Lola bags, Spring Summer 2020 will tempt you with new iterations of these silhouettes. Think antique illustrations on the TB, taking cues from the animal themed runway, and a latticed leather Lola bum bag punctuated by the Thomas Burberry monogram.
