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.

So what’s the changed besides the size?

This mini bag is small, but its iconic bamboo handle and elegant shape make it the perfect cocktail attire accomplice.

A simple name.

Just ‘Gucci Bamboo Daily Leather Top Handle Bag’, but the bag is not as simple as we might expect.

It’s a new style from the Fall Winter 2014 Collection and just like every gorgeous bag, the name has a meaning: ‘Daily’ – made to use as an everyday bag.

Oh yes, just a reminder. If you’re seeking for classic Gucci handbags, here’s another one:

The Gucci Jackie Soft Flap Bag, you remember?
