Coach S/S16 Rouge

If you’re looking for a soft slouchy number that’s good for both work and play, then why not consider Coach’s new S/S16 bag that’s also easy on the eyes and pretty affordable as well. Named the Rouge, it’s a boxy one too, the 32 cm by 25 cm body packing in a lot for a bag this size. Besides a trio of interior compartments, of which two are lined in suede, there’s also a main compartment where most of your stuff will go into, with a zip pocket on one side, a French clasp purse pocket on the other, as well as a leather key loop that’s great for latching your keys onto.

On the outside you’re looking at a pair of top handles, another pair of sling handles that allows you to wear the Rouge comfortably over the shoulder (these can be removed as well, by the way), as well as a really long leather zip closure that is purely there for aesthetics IMHO. Packing other details like a mini padlock, a leather key fob to hold said lock’s key and a special hangtag, deciding on which colour you actually want would be the hardest bit.

Besides the two colours that you see above (Hay and Cornflower), prices start from justSGD1600 for the regular Rouge in leather. And if you fancy something with a little bit of exotic leather, there are the Rouge bags that come with either ostrich or python leather wrapped handles. Priced at SGD2300 and SGD1995 respectively, all these variations in various colours are now available at Coach boutiques islandwide, but if you want all the options, the flagship store at Wisma Atria would be your best bet.

Louis Vuitton Monogram Rouge Noir Petite Malle Souple

Categories:Louis Vuitton

louis_vuitton_monogram-rouge-noir-petite-malle-souple-gmAs promised, here’s another post on Louis Vuitton’s S/S15 collection that features not only a new bag, but a new ‘colour’ as well. Given Nicolas Ghesquière’s update for the new season, he has taken the traditional brown/beige Monogram Canvas and updated it into a black/red combination that’s actually quite stunning. Called Monogram Rouge Noir, this coated canvas will be making an appearance on a selection of bags, SLGs and even shoes, including the one shown above which I’ll get to next.

One of the pieces I fell hardest for when I previewed it last year during the press presentation in Bangkok, it’s a squishy soft-sided take on the Petite Malle which has done very well for the French luxury house of late. Looking almost exactly like its predecessor right down to its leather trim and front clasp, it’s topped with a zip that runs right across the bag for easy access.

Available in 2 sizes (the MM and the GM), the unisex Petite Malle Souple will also come in toile and calf leather, but for now, let’s just focus on this beauty. Besides being easier to handle (it’s squishy, remember?), it’s also a tad (just a tad) easier on the pocket, with the MM and GM retailing for SGD4800 and SGD5650 respectively.

To be released sometime in early March 2015 (late February if we’re lucky), there are only 2 things you need to do right now regarding this bag. Save. And wait list. Which is what I’ll be doing as far as this baby is concerned.
