Prada’s Raffia Tote Bag
For subtly showing off everything you own
Raffia is the name of the game this summer, but for those who still want to keep it sleek, Prada’s deconstructed tote in black might just be the perfect choice. The classic holiday silhouette is given a contemporary touch, while still retaining just enough of the vacation vibes to accompany you wherever you go — be it a remote island, or brunch in the city. The classic Prada logo is embroidered across the front of the accessory, for the perfect beach bag with a sophisticated touch.

Mulberry’s New Sadie Silhouettes
For something young and fun
This Summer 2022, Mulberry gives its popular Sadie silhouette a different spin, featuring youthful designs and bright, popping colours. From the playful Mini Sadie — a smaller iteration, available in a range of vibrantly coloured leathers — to the boxy Sadie Square and Sadie Rectangle, each design makes a statement while retaining a carefree aesthetic perfect for everyday use. We especially love the multi-functional aspect — an adjustable shoulder strap and top handle chain offers multiple wear-ways, while each design is perfect for day-to-night use. Colours include Lawn Green, Coral Orange, and Mulberry Pink.

The Fendace Collection
For the boldest of both worlds
Versace and Fendi made waves in the fashion scene this season, with the announcement of their new collaboration, Versace by Fendi. Celebrating women, friendship, and the positive energy you get when supportive females come together, each ‘Fendace’ design is bold, brave, and filled with love. The tote, in particular, is perfect for those looking to truly make a statement. Fendi’s iconic logomania is brought together with the Medusa symbol that defines Versace, making it the perfect companion for those who aren’t afraid to express themselves.

Bottega Veneta’s Salon 03
For the cute and compact
We were first offered a glimpse of Bottega’s Turn Pouch lineup in Wardrobe 03, as a part of the small leather goods collection, and even then we couldn’t wait for more. Now offered in new sizes, colourways, and materials, Salon 03 sees new iterations available in both small and medium sizes. Designed to be ad once edgy and playful, a gold metallic sphere holds the bag together, transforming the pouch into a half-moon that fits snugly around the shoulder. A unique little statement, the silhouette manages to complement any outfit, and comes in parakeet gold, lantern gold, acid kiwi gold, black gold, and white gold.

Tod’s T Timeless
For getting things done during summer break
While we’re all for weekend bags and summer fun, there are times when you simply feel in the mood to buckle down and hustle. If that’s how you’re feeling, we recommend Tod’s T Timeless bag. Elegant and sophisticated, yet coming together in a soft form, the design offers an effortlessly chic look that’s perfect for anything from casual lunches to a client meeting. Colourways include classic hues such as brick and brown, accentuated by bright notes of yellow, turquoise, and bright red.

Dior’s New Vibe Line
For the fit (… and the soon-to-be-fit)
Dior takes to sportswear this season, unveiling a modern wardrobe inspired by the outfits of athletes — think biker shorts, polo shirts, and jackets. What we particularly love is the new Dior Vibe bowling bag. Coming in three size options — a yellow and blue small version, naturally-hued medium version, and cerulean blue hobo version — these bags are perfect for the fit and active, or those who are planning to shift to an active lifestyle this summer. For something even more versatile, the clutch bag also makes for a must-have.
