Balenciaga F/W17 Triangle Duffle

Other Brands


I know what you’re going to say, Balenciaga has been making the strangest of bags lately. But think of it this way, better be strange and unusual than cookie-cutter boring, right? And while this bag might not be everyone’s cup of tea, there’s really no harm taking a closer look either, especially when it will definitely remind you of, say, a samosa (a triangle-shaped pasty that’s often deep-fried and filled with savoury bits).

From Demna Gvasalia’s F/W17 collection for the French luxury label, the Triangle Duffle is quite literally, in a shape of a triangle (seriously Alvin, was that the best you can do?). Available in at least 2 different sizes, each of these sizes come with a pair of top handles, along with a long shoulder sling that allows one to wear it any which way you prefer. There’s also a much smaller version sans handles and sling that’s a clutch, which is adorable too but we’ll save that for another post at a later date.

Priced at SGD2070 and SGD2940 in Singapore for sizes Small and Medium respectively, it comes in Black, it comes in Gris, it even comes in a tasty golden Beige Caramel that really looks like a freshly deep-fried samosa. Sorry, I couldn’t help myself.

The Camellia Flower is a part of Chanel’s tradition due to the love story of the original founder Gabrielle Chanel. The story of the camellia flower started when the man she loved so dearly gave her a single flower and a gift. This man is Boy Capel and he is the love of her life. Even tough their love affair was short and ended sadly; it left a mark in the heart of Gabrielle.

And now meet the latest Chanel Camellia Edge Quilted Bags from the Pre-Fall 2017 Collection. Gabrielle’s love story lives on through this design as the Camellia flower is stitched beautifully on the left side of the front flap. The combination of the colors black and white is what makes it unique. A big part is crafted in black diamond quilting while the edge is made in white smooth leather. The white camellia flower is highlighted by putting on a black fabric. The Camellia flower represents femininity and it makes the bag look chic and ladylike. The top is finished with the iconic woven chain strap.

This is a rare fashion piece as it’s only available in the Pre-Fall 2017 Collection. Once the collection ends, this bag might not return anymore. So if you want to carry a part of Chanel’s love story or wants to sling a gorgeous bag that not many people carry, this is your opportunity to grab one.

We don’t have the style code, sizes or the prices yet. Check out at the Chanel boutiques for more details.

So what’s new comparing to the shoulder bag edition? Just like it name says; it comes with an extra handle, so it can be converted into a smart tote. The handles are crafted in round curvy shape, perfect for the modern woman. The Dio(r)evolution Bag is stunning because of the multiple way you can carry. It also comes with long leather strap for shoulder carry or cross body. This leather strap be removed or adjusted to your comfort. Then there is a slot handclasp on the front flap. This handclasp is beautified with the house’s signature; DIOR. When you have removed the leather strap, you can use this part to hold the bag as a clutch. Clever right?

This Dio(r)evolution Handle Flap Bag is made to with crinkled calfskin to look vintage. Then it’s added with aged gold-tone metal hardware. It’s a different look than the classic Cannage Stitching.

The interior is roomy as well, there is a small pocket on the front, then a large compartment at the back to store all your stuff. The inside is certainly bigger than shoulder bag version. The bag measures 25 x 16.5 x 6.5 cm and is priced at €2700 euro, £2400 GBP, ₩4,100,000 WON via Dior boutiques.

Just recently, Dior held an I Feel Blue exhibition in Shanghai and naturally it was all about the blue color. However, the event was also an opportunity for Maria Grazia Chiuri to showcase their ready-to-wear Fall Winter 2017 Collection. During the event, she was also introducing three new embroidered Lady Dior Bags. These bags are all developed with the same themes and techniques like those in the fashion show.

The three different embroideries are called I feel blue, The moon in my eyes and Astrology. The names fit perfectly to the figurative motifs on these bags. The I feel blue Lady Dior Bag is designed with gold but notable blue threads. It’s also crafted with the new modern DIOR charm and vintage golden hardware.

The other Lady Dior Bags are all boasted with golden motifs in black color. This work of art is also extended on the large shoulder straps. And now check out these new bags here:
