Cult Gaia Ark Bamboo Handbag

Other Brands

IMAGE: CULT GAIA

I’ve been seeing this float around Instagram for a while now, and for the longest time I couldn’t decide if it was a yay or a nay. At first glance it does look like an elaborate fish trap, the kind you place in the river overnight and come back the next day to see if it snared anything. On the other hand, there was something about the beautifully symmetrical shape that’s also very architectural that I was very fond of. Still, I wasn’t sold, and it sat in my ‘maybe’ box for the longest time.

All that changed when I spotted it on a Japanese lady in Tokyo, of all places, who like most Japanese women was fashionably chic in her long slip dress, a pair of two-toned Chanel pumps and this, Cult Gaia’s Ark Natural Bamboo Handbag hanging from her left hand. First thought? How good it looked in real life. Second thought? That although it’s made to look see-through, I couldn’t exactly make out what was actually inside her bag, which can only be a good thing.

Priced at USD128 for the Small and USD138 for the Large, you can buy it online via Cult Gaia where shipping is another USD48 for the bag to be shipped via DHL within 5 days. Not bad for a head-turner that will set you back by about SGD245 that you can use almost anywhere as far as our sunny shores are concerned. But if you’re keen but still not 100% convinced, I took the plunge and ordered one. So stay tuned to Instagram to see how it turns out once it arrives.

CHANEL CC BOX CAMERA CASE

Other Brands

Chanel-Quilted-Camera-Case-2

Looking for a stylish way to carry your camera but quite frustrated which brand to look for? Worry not for the bag fairy have heard your wishes! Introducing the Chanel CC Box Camera Case, which can be considered a diamond in the rough because it’s truly one of the most beautifuln bag I’ve ever seen.

Featuring a unique front leather strap with the CC logo hardware, which is partly covered with leather. This design is new and has been introduced not too long ago, but its already a big hit. The front leather strap functions both as a flauntable design as well as an added security for all your essentials. That’s because the bag also comes with a easy zipper, engraved with the house’s signature CHANEL, to ensure your items are all safe and sound.

Made from genuine lambskin, paired with silver hardware, this CC Box Camera Case is a quirky accessory to bring especially during your travels. It features the same thick diamond quilting which we absolutely adore and the interlocking chain shoulder strap so you can easily carry it over your shoulders. So what iconic elements is the CC Box Bag still missing?

Honestly speaking, this camera case doesn’t look like one as it can be easily mistaken as a different version of the famous Wallet On Chain bags. Because it’s also available in small size and when you sling it on your shoulder, it can be your ideal evening companion too. Now let’s look at the details:

The Bags (and Beyond) That I Love From Frye Spring 2017

Other Brands

FRYE’S SPRING COLLECTION GOES BEYOND ITS BELOVED BOOTS WITH PRETTY, PRACTICAL BAGS AND CASUAL SHOES TO ROUND OUT YOUR WEEKEND LOOKS

In collaboration with Frye.

In 1863, John A. Frye opened the doors to the first Frye shop in Marlboro, Massachusetts. In the 154 years since, Frye has solidified its place as the original craftsmen of American footwear and expanded to offer a beautiful range of handbags that showcase the same history and heritage in every stitch. Frye was born in the USA and is oldest continuously operated shoe company and second-oldest brand in America; the only older one is Levi’s.

While the shoes have always been front and center for this authentic heritage brand, the more recently added bags still boast the brand’s unrivaled craftsmanship. For Spring 2017, Frye launched its Modern Icons campaign to embrace its core values by using classic elements and weathered textures that pull from legendary Frye style. The end result is bags that I found myself loving and longing for (and, of course, the shoes make a perfect pairing).

THE ILANA SADDLE BAG

The bag that caught my attention first and continues to hold it is the Frye Ilana Saddle Bag, a classic-yet-relaxed shape and style that features smooth vegetable-tanned Italian leather that shows off the natural highs and lows of the color. There are four colorways, and I can’t decide which is my favorite, but I’m leaning toward Natural–it has a slight pink hue that is some kind of wonderful.

The interior is lined in suede, and the outer harness hardware helps this bag stand apart. After experiencing this bag in person and seeing it on countless people on Frye’s Instagram account, I couldn’t be more impressed.

Buy through Frye for $398.

THE HARNESS SADDLE BAG

The other shape I was drawn to is the Frye Harness Saddle Bag, which comes in two sizes. This bag’s sleek, streamlined style speaks to me, especially post-baby. I’ve been taking the advice many of you gave me and typically have one larger bag for Millie’s essentials, along with a compact bag that carries my own personal items, and this bag fits the ticket. The smooth, full-grain Italian leather is quite durable, and the distinctive stitching gives the bag some added dimensionality.

The shoulder strap is adjustable, which is a must for me, and I love that there are two sizes. (The regular size is 9.75″ H x 9.75″ W with a 21.25″ strap drop, while the small is 6″ H x 7″ W with a 23″ strap drop).

Priced at $398 and $298 in small.

Frye offers a couple strap options to change up your bags as well, and I really love what they created. While many brands offer very ornate straps, Frye knows its fan base and stuck to pared-down versions that meld seamlessly with the bags the brand offers. I really liked the Woven Raffia Strap, and it worked well with almost every bag I paired it with; I love how easily it transitions from bag to bag. Available for $128.

While the bags are our focus, we couldn’t get by without trying out some shoes as well. I have to say, every pair of shoes I tried out are now on my lust list. From the Ivy Low Lace leather sneaker, which works perfectly if you want a long-lasting cool leather sneaker, to the perfect-for-summer Gabby Perf Ghillie, to the Western touch on the Ellen Buckle Short boot, I am ready to add to my shoe wardrobe.

Frye Spring 2017 focuses on the Modern Icon, touching back on the roots of the brand while giving it a new edge, and the result is an incredibly wearable and covetable line of bags, shoes, and beyond.
