Straight from the Fall Winter 2017 Collection, a new Chanel O Case has emerged. It’s inspired by the latest Golden Class Double CC design, which looks both modern and classic. Recently there are a lot of new styles created for the O Case Collection, but this version is one of the best so far.

The design
The main component of the Golden Class Double CC is the 3D CC clasp on the front of the bag. It would be very difficult to create this style without the flap. The 3D CC Clasp is supported by a golden plate, which has been attached to the bag with four screws.

Just like the Classic Flap Bag, this Chanel O Case is also embellished in diamond quilting. It’s made in grained calfskin, which feels luxurious but the leather is also durable. The Golden Class Double CC is feminine, chic and the double CC gives a modern impression. It’s available in classic colors like black and navy, which one would fits the best you think?

The interior
Just like the other Chanel O Cases, the inside is quite simple. It just features one large compartment to store your personal items. The essentials you can carry is limited.

The Chanel Golden Class Double CC O Case is measured 9.3’ x 13.8’ x 1.6’ inches. The size is comparable to the Chanel Large O Case. The style code is A84053 and the price is $1400 USD, €1420 euro, £1230 GBP, $2180 AUD, $2280 SGD, $11500 HKD, ¥11200 CNY, ¥117120 JPY via Chanel boutiques.

An In-Depth Review of the Senreve Maestra Bag

Categories:Other Brands


A few weeks ago, we brought you an in depth look at the new handbag brand Senreve. The brand let me pick a bag out to try for myself, and I opted for the Maestra. The designers behind the brand put a great deal of focus into usability and functionality of their designs, and since having Millie, when I carry a bag, it’s really important to me that it works well. I’ve found myself desperately needing an extra set of hands when I don’t have anyone around to help at places like the grocery store checkout line, and the last thing I need to be doing is rummaging through my bag while holding Millie and trying to get moving. I was really excited to put this Senreve bag to the test, and after using it for a few weeks, I’m back to give you an in-depth look at the Senreve Maestra Bag.

There are a ton of new handbag designers trying to get themselves noticed in an already crowded market, and although some of them may have a cool idea or high-quality materials, but if the design isn’t impeccable, the brand will never make it onto my radar, or they do, I pass on covering them. When I first discovered Senreve, it was the aesthetics that lured me in. I immediately loved the bag I saw (it was the Maestra) and then dove into the site to discover the rest of the bags. I love the appearance of this design—the lines are clean, the design isn’t busy, the bag is unique and the leather shows a bit of texture from afar and even more up close. This is a bag that looks beautiful and isn’t a clone of anything else on the market, and I love that about it. There’s a subtle logo on the gusset, but no loud logos that outshine beautiful leather that’s pieced together to create a very pleasing bag. Especially with a new brand, if the aesthetics are off, it just doesn’t work, but in Senreve’s case, the aesthetics are on point.

Usability and functionality are probably the biggest selling points for Senreve. I’ve spent a lot of time talking to the ladies behind Senreve, getting to know them and their brand, and I can confidently tell you they thought out everything when it came to these bags not just looking good, but also being really easy to use. The idea behind the Maestra is that you can carry it and truly use it as an everyday bag, even if that includes work. When we lived in NYC, I saw so many people who carried their handbag plus a work bag, and Senreve wanted to combat the inefficiency of two bags and make one bag that could be used for any and everything.

I don’t need a work bag, but I need a bag that can carry Millie’s must-haves (I have an extra baby emergency bag in my car at all times, but I carry Millie’s necessities in my everyday bag), plus all of my essentials. I’ve had to take Millie meetings with our developers and lawyers, so in those cases, I need to carry a laptop or iPad as well. The Prada bag I’ve been carrying has a relaxed look, and I love the Senreve Maestra because it holds all of the items I need but does so in a way that is very organized and easy to find.

The interior of the bag is lined in powder blue microsuede, which makes locating items incredibly easy. Though a black interior doesn’t show wear, it makes it really hard to see what you’re looking for, so this light blue lining makes every item stand out. The size of the bag seems just right – not too big to take up extra space and not too small that you have to stuff your items inside.

The laptop sleeve on the interior is of course great for an electronic device, but I don’t usually carry a computer with me, so I’ve found it perfect as another separated compartment (it fits diapers, wipes and cream perfectly without bulging). I love that the laptop sleeve has a snap closure—it’s a small detail, but it helps prevent the pouch from sticking out. The interior also has multiple pouch pockets, and their depth seems just right to put items in and easily remove them (like my cell phone), and there’s a zip pocket as well. I LOVE how the interior is set up—it’s probably one of the few times recently that I really found a bag that feels like it was well thought-out when it comes to the interior and what women are looking for. Plenty of bags offer pockets, but the dimensions can make them hard to use. This bag is really easy to use on the inside, and no part of it feels oversized or tiny—it’s just right.

The leather is really sturdy, but still extremely luxurious. The reason I opted for this cream bag was the ladies of Senreve told me they’ve used these bags and believe they’ve found a white leather that won’t pick up colors. It is one of my handbag fears and biggest annoyances: buying a light-colored bag that then picks up color from my jeans and ruins it. For that reason alone, I don’t own many light colored bags, but I like how they look. I want to carry them and still wear my denim and not be constantly worrying about color transfer. So far, this bag has not picked up any color from my dark denim, and that is all kinds of amazing when it comes to a light-hued bag.

This bag fits right in with my other designer bags, but the price is under $900, and I feel like there is a lot of opportunity for a brand like Senreve at this price point. There are a lot of designers that fit into the under-$500 category and plenty well over $1,000, but Senreveentered this sweet spot while offering an Italian-made luxury bag and not marking the price well into the four figures. The bag is 100% made in Italy, and the pebbled leather on my cream Maestra is water-resistant and scratch-resistant while remaining smooth and durable.

I’d never been so aware of a bag having to look great but also be incredibly functional until I had Millie. I used to always preach the need for a long strap that allows you to be hands-free, but that is now truer than ever for me. I carry Millie a lot, and when I run into the store for a quick errand, I rarely take her in her stroller (though I probably should, she’s getting heavy and I’m feeling old!). You can hand-hold this bag, carry it over your shoulder, wear it as a backpack or carry it crossbody. The Senreve Maestra is now part of my handbag repertoire, and I’m so glad I found this brand.

Instagrammers Just Can’t Get Enough Saint Laurent This Summer

Saint Laurent Medium Bellechasse

Categories:Other Brands


New month, new bag from Saint Laurent and today’s focus is squarely (and quite aptly too) on this versatile little number known as the Medium Bellechasee that is equal parts chic and sharp in a smooth calfskin exterior that’s full on function and style.

This variation, which comes with a top handle, will remind you of a traditional briefcase/satchel that can be carried two ways. You can wear it across the body (or over the shoulder) or use it as a clutch. On the inside, you’ll find a roomy compartment that comes with its own interior slot pocket, as well two inner flap slots for all your important bits and bobs. In other words, enough space for most everything you need on any given day while you’re out and about with this little one.

What sets this chic satchel apart from Saint Laurent’s extensive line of bags? Besides its minimalist/vintage good looks (yes, you could argue it one of two ways), it would be how ‘plain’ it is, no large YSL logo on the flap, nothing gold or shiny, just the square clasp featuring brushed silver-tone hardware etched with the smallest of Saint Laurent logos.

In other words, simplicity is what makes this bag a winner when the criteria is all about quiet good looks. Available in Black (shown above), Dark Red and Navy, the 22 cm by 16 cm Medium Bellechasse retails for SGD2750 and will be available in Singapore this month.

Gucci New Ace (With Patches) Sneakers

Categories:Other Brands


Cool and coveted, Gucci’s Ace sneakers have given a fresh update as part of its Pre-Fall 2017 collection. New designs? Not really. More colour combinations? Well, not exactly. Customisable with detachable patches? Yes, yes, yes. Updated with laminated snakeskin heel tabs, these New Acesneakers now sport snap buttons as well, which means you can snap on (or take off) the designated embroidered patches that each pair comes with. And if you get tired of the patches you’ve already got? No worries, more patches are available for purchase separately, so you can pretty much mix them up any which way you like.

Available in variations for both the boys and the girls, ladies will have 6 styles that they can buy off-the-rack that come featured with patches ranging from animals and words to the all-important pineapple (because #huatah) and even a fully embellished crystal bow that’s not for the faint-hearted. All standouts in their own right, you can customise these sneakers further by interchanging them with even more patches that include motifs like bees, bows, flowers and snowflakes, just to name a few.

Boys will get to choose from 5 styles, from Angry Cat (who doesn’t love Angry Cat), panthers, even a dragon paired with the UFO. Customise them further with patches that include a beaded heart that’s pierced with a sword, more animals, even a pearl-adorned numeric 25.


And because Gucci’s big on packaging, each pair of sneakers will come in a specially designed box with a black satin dust bag and a paper bag that’s adorned with a rainbow. Priced at SGD990 to SGD1430 a pair for the ladies (while shoes for the boys range from SGD990 to SGD1090), extra patches will set you back by SGD330 to SGD490 (depending on the design) which is pretty reasonable considering the fact that just by changing the patches you get a whole new pair of shoes altogether. Now available at Gucci boutiques in Singapore, excuse me while I head down to get my pair before everything is sold out.
