A Close Look at Salvatore Ferragamo’s Colorful, Cool Bag Collaboration with Sara Battaglia

Other Brands


In collaboration with Ferragamo.

When I think of Ferragamo, I think of a classic, traditionally Italian approach to leather goods. In the world of designer handbags, when many brands are trying to grab attention and make the next It Bag by any means necessary, Ferragamo stays true to its core, focusing on expert craftsmanship and quality products instead of gimmicks and flash. When you buy from the brand, you know you’re getting a bag that’s sophisticated and elegant. Now, Ferragamo has teamed up with style star Sara Battaglia to chart new aesthetic territory with a new capsule collection.

The minute I saw this collection, I fell for it. I’m a Ferragamo girl at heart (also, can we talk about how the brand’s shoes are easily some of the most perfect-in-every-way designer shoes out there?), and I’m always looking for something new. In partnering with Sara Battaglia, who has her own handbag line and is known for her creative and innovative use of shapes, colors, and design (just as Salvatore himself was during the brand’s inception), Ferragamo has created a range of bags that immediately grab your attention.

Sara Battaglia brings her playful style to the line with two of Ferragamo’s iconic motifs: the zigzag and the House’s Gancio emblem. The end result is masterful craftsmanship that showcases geometric patterns in colorful combinations. From a small shoulder bag, to a tote, to a cool bucket bag, there is an option for everyone.

As far as the colors go, there’s classic black and white, black and green (which is an online exclusive and personal favorite), a white and beige with subtle touches of every color of the rainbow, and the combo I call fire, with its ombre red-to-orange-to-yellow combination. The colorways are bold and perfectly suited to each bag to create stand-out accessories.

Though there are many bags being offered in this collection, I have two favorites: the Ferragamo Zigzag Capsule Mini Flap Bag and the Ferragamo Zigzag Top Handle Bag. Both of these bags are oh-so-me in so many ways. First off, let’s talk about the Zigzag Mini Flap Bag. The green-and-black colorway is exclusive to Ferragamo.com, and this mini bag immediately stuck out to me (there’s also black/white and red/orange/yellow combinations, and each pack a stylistic punch).

Right now, I either carry an oversized bag with everything I need for Millie or I go bare minimum, and this bag would fit the times I want a small bag to carry. This bag measures 5.5″ x 6.6″ x 2.1″, which makes it a true mini bag. This is the ideal night-out bag that will work with any outfit and surely stand out with its bold black and green geometric zigzag exterior, along with the gold Gancio closure with a starburst plate. The shoulder strap has a long 20″ drop, and there’s an open back pocket, interior zip pocket, and leather lining. Buy exclusively via Ferragamo.com for $1,590.

My other favorite from the collection reminds me of a vanilla ice cream cone with colored sprinkles, and, I mean, who doesn’t feel happy at the thought of that? I am obsessed with this bag. The cream-and-white zigzag leather has green, blue, pink, red, and yellow piping along each zigzag, and this bag also has the coolest removable zigzag strap, which I’m obsessing over. The bag is still small in size, but larger than the Mini Flap Bag and easier to load up with a wider variety of essentials. This is one of those bags that isn’t too out there, color-wise, but still offers a fresh spin on classic Ferragamo style. The end result is a sophisticated edginess. Buy via Ferragamo.com for $2,100.

The collection includes plenty more bags that use the zigzag in unexpected and striking ways, including totes, buckets, mini bags and more. The Bucket Bag is a really unique design, as the body of the bag is structured and the handle is made of metal. Each melds Ferragamo’s heritage with its present point of view in a way that works so well, creating an impeccably made design with a twist. Shop the entire Sara Battaglia for Salvatore Ferragamo Collection on Ferragamo.com.

Chanel ‘GC’ Gabrielle Hobo

Other Brands


No stranger to this blog, I must say the Chanel’s Gabrielle Hobo just gets better and more interesting with each new season. The full leather ones were launched first, then the ones that came in suede after, as well as the one in metallic leathers after that. And for Fall-Winter Pre-Collection 2017, we’ve got this, the Chanel ‘Gabrielle Chanel’ Gabrielle Hobo in, you guessed it, tweed.

Which kinda reminds me of the one G-Dragon toted around when I was in Seoul for the Mademoiselle Privé exhibition. But while his was clearly one he customised himself (you can catch a glimpse of it here), this one, with the name of the French luxury house’s founder boldly emblazoned across it, has already been ‘customised’ for you.

Measuring 28 cm across by 21 cm in height, it is also much younger and definitely more fun, a huge difference the previous ones that were whilst elegant, could also have bordered on mature. In other words, if you want something casual, fuss-free and colourful without being overly loud (and yes, that embroidered detailing is seriously cute too), this SGD5460 bag could be the one for you.  Yes, it is also a tad more affordable than the full leather ones, which makes it a steal really.

Saint Laurent Fall 2017 Tuxedo Box Bag

Other Brands


No stranger to this blog, the Tuxedo Box Bag makes its comeback for Fall 2017 with all new colours and textures, plus patchwork details that definitely jazz up its otherwise simple, straightforward boxy shell.

Each bag’s patchwork detail differs from the next, so it all boils down to which of the trio catches your eye, each with its exotic skin design and pattern. For starters, there’s the lizard skin Tuxedo Box Bag that essentially features a patchwork of vintage cars in predominantly red, black and grey, that’s also embellished with round metal studs. With the hardware in oxidised nickel working perfectly against its edgy print, it is well-suited for the cool Saint Laurent girl that carries it.

The other equally snazzy print comes in a snakeskin (python, to be specific) body that’s mixed with colours like beige, black, blue and green all juxtaposed beautifully into an animal abstract; there’s a panther and what looks like a snake on the front. Last but not least, there’s one in matte black that features a star patchwork print with a mix of croc and leather that’s no less alluring.

With a 53 cm drop sling strap on the 20 cm by 17 cm box clutch, they will retail for SGD5580 each in Singapore. A pretty penny no doubt, but when you factor in all the exotic skins carefully cut and assembled by hand onto each bag, and the fact that they are definitely more collector’s pieces than just casual bags, you’ll understand why it costs this much.

At the house of Chanel, there are endless types of Chevrons. We have seen a lot, but there will be more to see because fashion is endless innovation. In the past, we’ve spotted Chain Chevron, Chevron Stitching, Multicolor Python Chevron and for the Spring Summer 2017 Collection Act 2, Chanel presents the Large Chevron Quilted Flap Bag.

This is a unique contemporary bag because it’s different than what we’ve seen in the previous seasons. This Chevron Quilted Bag is made with a V shaped Flap, which matches perfectly to the Chevron Quilting. The other parts are inspired by the iconic designs like woven leather chain strap and the interlocking CC logo, resembling to the Classic Flap Bag. What’s more, it has a timeless squared shape, which makes it a good investment.

The top and side is a bit curvy, which is ladylike and flexible. And what you also need to know is that it’s made from calfskin – a durable and scratch resistance leather, but it’s not as hard as the caviar leather.

Carry the bag on your shoulder or cross body; with pride of course because you’ve got a bargain. The medium bag has almost the size like the M/L Classic Flap Bag, but it’s less expensive. For those who have almost given up buying Chanel, because they cannot keep up with the prices, now it’s your opportunity to shine.

A little calculation: the M/L Classic Flap Bag is priced at $4900 USD, but this medium sized bag is priced at $3300 USD, which is a huge difference.

If you’re interested, we have all the details below.

Every once in a while, there is a heart-melting handbag wandering around at MyTheresa. This new Prada Clutch Saffiano one of them. Now, we know what Saffiano stands for, because we’re familiar with the forever-famous Saffiano Lux Tote. The Saffiano is patented by Prada and is one of the most luxurious and durable materials in the world. Basically, when you decide to purchase this purse, it will be a lifetime investment.

The design looks simple and timeless. It’s made in single color with a boxy shape; the front features the brand’s iconic logo ‘Prada Milano’, in gold-tone metal. The reason why this bag is called a Clutch Shoulder Bag is because of the snap closure on the top. This type of snap closures are usually crafted on clutch bags, but this is not a clutch. This is a full shoulder bag.

The golden hardware on the logo and the clasp on the top create the ultimate luxury appeal. It also comes with a long leather strap that can be adjusted anytime. And given that this bag is only exclusively available at MyTheresa, you will own a limited fashion piece.

Measuring 6.5’ x 8.5’ x 4’ (H x W x D), priced at $1970 USD, 1835 euro, $15300 HKD, $2820 AUD
