Gucci Lilith Top Handle Bag

Other Brands

If you asked me what bag at Gucci today still epitomises the past and the present as far as their handbags are concerned, this would be it. Those familiar with the Italian luxury house’s bags of yore will find the bamboo handle familiar, a Gucci signature that’s still keep alive and well under the auspices of sitting Creative Director Alessandro Michele.

Having seen the process for myself when I visited their bag production facility in the outskirts of Florence some years back, I can tell you this much. As simple as it might look, each bamboo handle still has to go through hours and hours of skilled craftsmanship, a single artisan crouched over an open flame as he exposes the bamboo rods to heat, slowly bending them bit by bit before it takes its eventual curved shape. Layers upon layers of a special varnish are also applied to give it that shine, as well as to keep it in an almost pristine condition for years to come.

From the handle down, however, and it’s a different story. Obviously inspired by vintage references, Michele draws upon a new icon of house, the snake, and uses it to great effect on the Lilith. Named so because it’s believed to be the name of Adam’s first wife in midrashic literature (you know how the story ends) with the snake tempting both of them.

But beyond the name, the bag is also a beautiful example of vintage-chic that’s big at Gucci these days, the bag sold with two slings, one of leather, the other in grosgrain. The perfect bag for ladies-who-lunch, it also comes in at least 2 sizes at the moment, a Small (26 cm by 24 cm) and a Medium (33 cm by 22 cm) with both sizes now available at Gucci boutiques in Singapore, including the newly-opened flagship at ION Orchard.

Bag Review: Louis Vuitton Monogram Nano Dora

Louis Vuitton

As you get older like me (ouch!), you will find yourself wanting to carry bags with less weight. A month ago, I went to the Louis Vuitton boutique and saw the cutest mini bags. They are lightweight and easy to carry because of the shoulder strap which works for crossbody wear. Alongside the classic mini pieces (speedy, noe, alma), there was the mini version of the Monogram Dora.

NanoDora1

It is a very cute, structured nano bag. But woaah the price is already at par with that of a regular sized Speedy! Would you rather go with this adorable little bag or would you pay for the larger Speedy? 

The Monogram Nano Dora can fit a card case, your phone, a lipstick, a powder compact, and probably a pair of sunnies, though I won’t exactly push it only because I don’t know how squished it might get inside with all your other things. But it definitely fits 

NanoDora2

I would probably buy this bag if I have a lot of $$$, but hah since I am currently cutting down on the stuff that has cluttered my closet, I will just save my money for something else 

And speaking of clutter, I decided to put up a group on Facebook called THE CLOSET RAIDERS. This is an online bulletin board for everyone to post CLOTHES and SHOES (no bags or wallets please– if you have a designer bag *worth over PhP 10K, send me a PM on instagram.com/shopthebaghag for consignment) that they no longer use or wear. I have a lot of stuff I will post in the next month, after I get back from my fashion week travels. It is a closed group so please ask to be added

Flying with the Chanel XXL Travel Bag

Other Brands

I cannot believe I managed to cram 1 month’s worth of clothing and other stuff for fashion week in 2 suitcases in 5 hours lol!! Put it this way, I hope this time around, I don’t get any more surprises when I open my suitcases. Lol last season I don’t know how I ended up bringing 7 pairs of black shoes! Yup, this always happens. I am a last minute packer. A procrastinator. And when the time comes, I just find whatever clean thing I can find and stuff it into the luggage.

I normally travel with a cabin trolley and a bag but on this trip, I decided to travel with this Chanel XXL bag. Only!!! Haha this pack rat is officially proud of herself 

The bag is huge– it is 3x bigger (ok maybe 2.5x) than my head!
MaxichanelDubai

I have a laptop inside, with its charger, 2 mobile phones, my travel toiletries kit, monthly planner, scarf, medicine kit, passport and documents, and haha 2 bags of salted egg chips (guilty snacker here). The bag is a bit heavy, to be honest. But it has been a good onboard bag so far. And if you have a trolley, the bag will complement it because its back pocket unzips to allow the trolley handle to slip through.

Do I recommend this bag? Yes. Because unlike the smaller Chanel flap bags which have become so overpriced in recent years, this Chanel XXL’s price is quite reasonable.

Alright, time for breakfast! Will post an entry again soon! In the meantime, follow me on instagram: THEBAGHAG and watch my instagram stories/ Snapchat: The_baghag.
