Bottega Veneta Messenger In Intrecciato Calf & Nappa

Other Brands


Menfolk, take note, there’s a new bag from Bottega Veneta in town and this is the one that might just catch your fancy. Known simply as the, erm, the Messenger, because that’s just BV’s way of calling a spade a spade without the need for all those fancy names, another thing you can be sure of is the ample use of their signature Intrecciatoleather.

And in the case of this bag, in both calfskin and nappa leathers. Sporting a straightforward enough design without all the bells and whistles (it’s Bottega Veneta after all), it’s simply a rectangular leather bag with a pair of zips on the top that serves as the opening and a long sling strap which will allow you to wear this bag either over the shoulder or across the body.

From Tomas Maier’s first-ever Early Fall 2016 collection from the Italian luxury house, this is also one bag that will never go out of style; you can use it for years and years to come because they all look somewhat similar. Which, in a sense, is what all the Kering siblings are doing these days, from flamboyant Gucci to rock and roll Saint Laurent, where all the seasons seem to flow seamlessly from one collection into another. In other words, good for the pocket too.

Céline F/W16 Tri-Fold

Other Brands


I’ll be honest, the first time I laid eyes on Céline’s F/W16 Tri-Fold, I wasn’t impressed. It looked too big, it looked chunky, it wasn’t even structured, all qualities that I don’t fancy in a bag. Bags I usually like are small, sleek and structured. Then I took a step back and deliberated again. And it hit me. The Tri-Fold wasn’t made to be a pretty little thing, one that would perch happily on the table whilst your girlfriends and you had tea. It was made to be a workhouse that a modern OL (you know, office lady) would find extremely useful without sacrificing on style.

A bag that’s still definitely Céline, what with her wide gussets and long leather laces on a semi-glossy leather body that’s very them, it’s also called the Tri-Fold because if you looked at the bag from the top down, you’ll see 3 very distinct compartments. The middle compartment comes with a zip that runs right across it, with a side compartment holding additional patch pockets for additional organisation.


In other words, you can comfortably fit in your laptop, your A4 documents, notebooks, a portable umbrella and even a shawl, along with your wallet, keys and other bits and bobs. And because I’ve even seen it hold that much in real life (yes @plumtr3, I’m stalking your IG account) and still look good, I’m even more convinced. In other words, it’s a modern day equivalent of Doraemon’s Obtaining Bag.

Priced from SGD4200 and up in Singapore, you’ll find the Tri-Fold in many colours too, from Black to Burgundy to Moss Green, just to name a few. A bag for every day, an everyday bag. What’s not to love?
