Hermès Diabolo

IMAGE: HERMÈS

If you’re in the market for a card holder that makes all the right first impressions, look no further than Hermès’ Diabolo for that perfect pedigree. Measuring approximately 10 cm by 6 cm (or just the size for credit or name cards), it’s the one you whip out at that important business meeting or the one you use to keep your Centuarian safe. The choice is yours really.

Priced at SGD620 a piece in Singapore, the Diabolo comes in a variety of Hermès leathers like Epsom calfskin and Mysore goatskin in many different colours (you can even get the one in Noir just to match the aforementioned Centuarian), here comes the bad news. Because of its sleek thin design, you can only store up to 2 credit cards in each Diabolo, or up to 8 name cards, depending on the thickness of each card. But since we’re all about making that good first impression, it shouldn’t really matter, right?

Gucci Bamboo Top Handle Basket Bag

Categories:Other Brands

IMAGE: GUCCIUnless you’ve been living under the proverbial rock, you would have seen basket bags all over the place. On Instagram, along Orchard Road, even in your friendly neighbourhood hipster cafe. Yes, woven straw or rattan baskets are officially très chic again, and whether you bought them in Arab Street, Taobao or even the vintage store, you’re now part of the coolest cliques around.

Maybe it’s the collective conscious of wanting to do good (they are pretty environmentally friendly) and the whole living simply movement that makes them so desirable, or maybe it’s because they are generally affordable, hardy and great for everything else besides being a bag because you could also them to house flowers, store fruits or even as picnic baskets.

But if you’re looking for the one that tops everyone else’s basket bag, might I present this one from Gucci, the Bamboo Top Handle Basket Bag. New from their Fall-Winter 2017 collection, the 22 cm by 15.5 cm by 12 cm woven straw basket comes with the iconic Bamboo top handle, completing the look that’s part-vintage, part-hipster and all Alessandro Michele.

Lined with the prettiest of linen fabrics that come printed with tiny roses, the SGD2580 bag is now available at Gucci boutiques in Singapore. The good news? There are only 2 pieces for sale, which means you’ll be hard-pressed to see another with the same bag walking down Orchard Road.
