Gucci Dionysus Super Mini Bag

Gucci

You don’t typically see the words ‘super’ and ‘mini’ in a same sentence, for the simple fact that they are polar opposites of the other. But place them one after the other and you’ll get a completely different context with ‘super mini’, one that simply means exceptionally mini. And that’s just what the folks at Gucci had in mind when they came up with this bag (well, it’s more of a wallet-on-chain) under the Dionysus family of small leather goods.

Identified by the textured tiger head closure which references the Greek god Dionysus, these mini bags take come in at an adorable size of 16.5 cm by 10 cm. Yes, it’s that small, which only adds to its oh-my-god-I-can’t-resist-picking-this-up allure.

Unsnap the closure and you’ll find a single inner compartment that easily fits an iPhone7 (sorry if you have anything bigger), with a bit of room left over for the most essential of cards and a small stack of cash. Oh, let’s not forget your keys, which you can attach onto the inner keyring within. While that might not seem much, technically that’s all you ever need for lunch, an afternoon tea, or a night out with the girls, right?

Finished with a 60 cm chain strap drop, you can sling this little wonder over the shoulder or across your body comfortably, keeping you hands-free as you shop with that cup of Boost Juice (or Gong Cha, or Koi) in hand. Priced at SGD1010 for the one in GG Supreme Canvas and SGD1060for the ones in leather and embellished with Swarovski crystals adorning the textured tiger head, Gucci’s Dionsyus Super Mini Bag is now available over at Gucci boutiques at ION Orchard, Marina Bay Sands and Paragon.

‘Rear Window,’ Great Closet

Fashion

ALL PAIR MAGNIFICENTLY WELL WITH A SET OF BINOCULARS FOR SNOOPING

Because I had two soft serve cones with sprinkles last week, it means it is practically summer now, which means summer is practically over (not how it works, but not nothow it works), meaning I need to sort out my inspirations for what I’ll be wearing when I step out of the hell tunnel that is my morning commute. Luckily, I have an arsenal of style inspiration for every occasion.

Which brings me to style queen Grace Kelly’s character in Alfred Hitchcock’s Rear Window. A perfect example of a perfect wardrobe in a perfect movie set in a perfect Greenwich Village apartment in the perfect summer season circa 1954.

Quick synopsis: Lisa Freemont (played by Kelly) and her boyfriend male lead (Jimmy Stewart) begin to suspect their suspicious neighbor is a murderer after spying on him through the rear window of their apartment. In the film’s climactic confrontation with the killer, Lisa is the one scaling the fire escape and breaking through windows and getting shit done. All this while wearing a fitted floral-print dress.

That’s a statement I can get behind. I can also get behind a celery-colored skirt suit for reasons I haven’t quite come to terms with. Some things just feel right.

Here are some outfits I plan on stealing, reimagined for Lisa Freemont as reincarnated for summer sixteen. She’s looking looking looking looking for revengeee. Playing dirty not clean.

1. Opening outfit:

Rear-Window-Grace-Kelly-Man-Repeller-21
Her original dress has peacock feather detailing, but today she’d relocate the bird motif to her accessories: these Etro flamingo earrings keep glamour alive and well. As does a strappy body suit or lace top with a white statement skirt (or this one or this). These Valentino strappy sandals with the feathers are a godsend for convincing her boyfriend that she could, in fact, go with him on his photo safaris. Dare I suggest a skirt swap for a killer pair of white pants? YUP.

         

2. The celery suit.

Rear-Window-Man-Repeller-20

Leave it to a flight attendant’s daughter to be super into this outfit, pillbox hat and all! Unfortunately, a polyester wool blend ensemble isn’t a realistic summer option, but I’m into some weird greens reworked. Change the skirt suit to a swim suit (bikini version) plus astraw hat. (Also, adding these sunglasses can’t hurt…) For a night out, this dress with the same halter-vibe as the film, and for any weekend emergency, these pumps.

         

3. A négligée

Rear Window Man Repeller 17

Lisa Freemont would surely be surprised to know that in 2016, not only can she sleep at her boyfriend’s place without telling his landlord (the fifties sucked!), but the lingerie she packed in her overnight bag is welcome on the streets. We can now rise straight from bed in our satin slips and walk to the bagel shop. What a world!

I’m thinking: these crocodile slides, a satin gown or slip and this Mark Cross “Grace” bag, which is the perfect size for her sleep mask and toothbrush.

     

4. A yellow floral dress is so iconic.

Rear-Window-Man-Repeller-19

As much as I’m into it, I’m also not a huge yellow person. This dress changes up the silhouette and color. Adding ballet flats (and even a floral embellished bag — how bold!) makes it a little more contemporary, but someone could still rock a covert operation in apartment courtyard at night in this. No?

     

5. For weekend lounging, any ol’ cotton blouse orshirt dress (heaven!) will do. Magazines required.

Rear-Window-Man-Repeller-18

     

Dreamy, right? Much more stylish than the weird 2008 Shia LeBouf remake, Disturbia. (Not that I don’t love that movie.) Thank you Edith Head for costume design so fabulous it still shines fifty years later.

Any other style inspos we should consider? What are you wearing in the heat? Spying on neighbors? Keep your eyes peeled.
