The Zumi bag is named after Gucci’s new muse, Zumi Rosow. She’s a model, experimental musician and actress. Rosow carried the Zumi while she strutted down the runway of Gucci’s spring summer 2019. It comes in a variety of skins but the adorable strawberry-printed ivory leather has our eye. It also comes with hinged locks on both ends for easy access to your compartments.


Chanel Side-Packs

The Chanel spring summer 2019 show opened with a model sashaying fiercely down the sandy runway armed with the Chanel side-packs. The double lambskin pouches sit nicely on the model’s hips, secured by chains looped around the front and back. This new way of wearing a bag is at once refreshing and liberating, introducing new ways to style up your look. Since there aren’t any hard rules, we’re excited to see the different experimental styles on the streets soon.

Luxury is redefined as the latest Bottega Veneta Maxi Cabat, featuring a scaled up version of the brand’s signature intrecciato weaves. If size matters, the spacious bag will fit your laptop, jacket and all your daily necessities while still offering excess space. Additionally, its 4cm wide leather weave creates a graphic yet understated elegance. Go for the green and black combination if it’s a bold statement you’re after.


Dior Oblique Saddle Bag

The “It” bag from the early 2000s just got a refresh. Each bag is meticulously crafted by Dior’s artisans and put together with quality construction techniques. The Dior oblique saddle is a classic that’s hard to miss thanks to its monogrammed canvas and D-shaped gold clasp. It’s available in blue, burgundy and green — so pick a hue that would compliment your style.


Givenchy Whip Bag

The whip bag received its name from the long strip of leather coiling tightly around the handle of the bag. Its sharp angular form and stylish outlook is befitting for a confident and sophisticated individual. The whip bag celebrates Givenchy‘s aesthetic by fusing modernity and dark romanticism. It also comes in smooth leather and a variety of exotic snakeskin.

Miuccia Prada is constantly playing with the unexpected and loves combining opposing elements in her designs. That’s no exception when it comes to designing her bag line. The Prada belle — boxed shaped while complimented with round edges — is contrasted with whimsically shaped metal hardware and a chunky chain, fusing timeless elegance and quaint design.


Louis Vuitton Trapeze

The Louis Vuitton Trapeze has a quirky retro design and it comes in light grey and pistachio green leather. It sports a geometrical ensemble with a triangular flap, making the bag an outstanding seasonal piece. A great addition to your collection for posh looks.


Celine C Bag

This minimalistic design can do no wrong. The Celine c bag is available in small and medium and comes in quilted calfskin, crocodile and python. Its iconic yet classy metallic closure sets it apart from the other bags. Its side sliding chain allows two strap length options that makes carrying it out versatile and effortless.
