THE ULTIMATE CHLOE FAYE BAG REVIEW

Categories:Other Brands

Chloe-Faye-Bag

The Chloe Faye Bag was first released in the Spring Summer 2015 Collection and it came right after the success of the Drew Bag. Just like the previous ‘IT Bags’, the Faye became one of the most popular handbags among bloggers and celebrities. Chiara Ferragni from The Blonde Salad, Chrissy Teigen and Eva Longoria were spotted carrying it not long after the bag hits the stores.

The Chloe Faye Bag was one of the last releases before the creative director Waight Keller left the company in 2017. The Faye Bag is still trending today and the line has even extended to the mini bag and other small leather accessories like wallets.

The Design

Chloe-Faye-Bag-design

The design of the Chloe Faye Bag is inspired by the spirit of the 70’s, which is also the decade when Chloe became one of the symbolic brands in the fashion world. Just like most of Chloe’s bag designs, the Faye is also a stunning casual chic handbag that matches perfectly with a winter coat. The size is also formidable larger than the Drew Bag and can store more essentials; making it an ideal bag to use for work.

While the leather is gorgeous, the focus lies in the centerpiece. Just right below the front flap, the Faye Bag is made with a large loop attached to the chain, which then is attached to the side. And whether the hardware is gold or silver, it’s shiny enough to attract plenty of attentions.

The shape of the bag depends on the size you choose; the medium sizes are crafted in trapezoid shape while the small size comes in squared shape. Both come with long shoulder strap to carry on your shoulder or cross body.

The Sizes

From Left To Right: Wallet On Chain, Small, Medium

The measurements:
Chloe Faye Wallet On Chain: 19 x 10 x 3 (W x H x D) cm
Chloe Small Faye Bag: 24 x 15 x 6 (W x H x D) cm
Chloe Medium Faye Bag: 32 x 25 x 10 (W x H x D) cm

For now, the Chloe Faye Bag is available in small and medium size. Even tough the important components are the same like the large loop, the shape and the interior is different. The small size is much smaller than the medium size. And while the medium size is ideal to wear for work, the small size is perfect whenever you don’t need to carry too many stuff.

The Leathers

Chloe-Faye-Bag-Leathers

From Left To Right: Goatskin, Part Suede And Calfskin

The Chloe Faye Bag is usually made with single colors and part suede/part leather. The part suede and part leather creates the most interesting look, because suede makes the color brighter and the leather makes the color sharper. Together with the big loop in shiny hardware, you can be certain that it’s a statement maker. For the single colors, the most popular leather available is goatskin.

The Colors

There is never lack in colors at Chloe, but there are certain colors that are popular and practical. The most picked leather by bloggers and celebrities is orange (usually in part suede and part leather), then there is black, beige/white, brown and grey.

GUESS Originals x A$AP Rocky Capsule Collection

Categories:Other Brands

IMAGES: GUESS

If you’re old enough to remember GUESS, you’re definitely old, which was the first thing that came to mind when I laid eyes on the GUESS Originals x A$AP capsule collection. Back then it was all about the sexy GUESS girls and boys in their tightly fitted jeans and almost everyone I knew had a pair. Or two. Along with whatever else they sold which pretty much sold like hotcakes back in the day.

You could say I’m feeling nostalgic (old people tend to do that a lot), but this particular collaboration sure brought back many memories, with the 35-piece vintage-inspired collection promising to have something for everyone. And the one thing that caught my eye? Those GUE$$ tees that come with $$ instead of SS which I think is all A$AP’s doing. Imbued with the vibe of the 80s (or is it the 90s), they are fun, they are colourful and they are definitely gay (and by gay I mean happy). Priced from SGD89 and up, they will be available in Singapore at 3 GUESS boutiques (ION Orchard, Marina Bay Sands and Ngee Ann City) from 8 July 2017.

And while your guess is as good as mine as to whether this will help the brand from sliding further into oblivion, I’m guessing many of you would get a tee (or two) just to take that walk down memory lane (see what I did there?). Because I most definitely am.

Montblanc’s Patron of Art Edition is a fitting tribute to Scipione Borghese

Categories:Other Brands


Every year as part of its endeavor to recognize and promote the contribution of selected art patrons in the world, Montblanc presents them with the prestigious De la Culture Arts Patronage Award. Along with it, a unique Limited Edition writing instrument inspired by the great custodians of yesteryears is also commissioned to them in their honor. This year the iconic pen manufacturer pays tribute to one of the greatest Roman collectors of Art from the 17th century- Scipione Borghese.


The 2017 Patron of Art edition draws inspiration from the legend’s great love for baroque art and his original legacy that lives on even today. Most of Scpione’s collections are displayed at the Villa Borghese in Rome as of today, which in itself is a divine monument of Roman heritage and art. Mesmerizing embossments on the cap and cone of the Patron of Art special edition 4810 fountain pen take inspiration from a Borghese Vase, wherein the top shape of the cap crowned with Montlblanc’s signature black and white and a precious resin is reminiscent of the cardinal’s hat, with the cone being motivated by the ancient coins featuring the cardinal’s face. Further, the Au 750 solid gold ruthenium-coated nib of the pen is enriched with an engraving of the Borghese family coat of arms.

On equivalent lines, the Scipione Borghese Limited Edition 888 recalls the artistry of the lavish Borghese Gallery, whereas the Borghese Limited Edition 89 plays a fitting example of the work that could be seen on a cabinet of curiosities. It’s Au 750 gold barrel is inlaid with lapis lazuli, mammoth ivory, paua shell and fossilized dinosaur bone, much like its muse. Lastly, the Borghese Limited Edition 3 comes with features such as an amber inlay, a skeletonized barrel, an intense red garnet at the base of the cone and a diamond encrusted cap top with a branch like clip, all reminiscent of the precious Baroque culture.

To compliment this elaborate collection, Montblanc has also created two unique pairs of limited edition cufflinks – one displaying a red gold and amber design with an onyx pearl and the other showcasing ancient silver coins framed in a red gold frame. For those fancying a purchase, the Montblanc Patron of Art Edition – Homage to Scipione Borghese is available in Montblanc boutiques worldwide

THE ULTIMATE CHANEL CLASSIC SHOPPING TOTE REVIEW

Categories:Other Brands

Chanel-Classic-Shopping-Tote

First introduced during the Spring Summer 2016 Collection, the Chanel Classic Shopping Tote is a new addition to the house’s classic line. The design resembles a lot like the Classic Flap Bag, but in a tote bag version. And it also reminds us of the discontinued Grand Shopping Tote.

Chanel-GST-vs-Chanel-Large-Classic-Tote

Chanel Grand Shopping Tote (GST)

Chanel Classic Shopping Tote vs Chanel Grand shopping Tote

The Grand Shopping Tote is also known as the GST and it was discontinued in 2015. This bag was extremely popular due to its practical design and the reasonable price tag. When you need a shoulder bag, you went for the Classic Flap Bag. But when you wanted a tote bag, then it was naturally to buy the Chanel Grand Shopping Tote.

The Chanel GST came in two sizes; the large size was called the Chanel GST XL. This bag was crafted in soft diamond quilting and features a printed-version of the CC logo on the center of the bag. This logo created a sense of vintage while the woven chain strap balanced it with a modern touch.

The interior was large enough to store all your daily essentials and more. With woven chain strap, the bag could be carried on the shoulder, on the crook of the arm or just by hand. It was a very handy handbag. Besides being practical, the design doesn’t scream CHANEL at all, which makes it perfect to use as an everyday bag.

The Design

The design on the Chanel Classic Shopping Tote looks a lot like the iconic Classic Flap Bag. Just take a closer look at the features – the diamond quilting, the interlocking CC logo, the woven chain strap and it even comes with a back pocket. All of these components resemble to the Classic Flap Bag, which are inspired by Coco Chanel’s original 2.55 Bag.

The GST is made with double eyelets, linked to the woven chain strap. But the Chanel Classic Shopping Tote is made with just one eyelet on each side. In our opinion, the new design is more intriguing and heart-melting. And also, the printed CC logo is swapped with the interlocking CC, which changes the whole appearance from vintage to modern.

The Interior

The interior is secured with a quilted leather strap. The inside is crafted with one large compartment, featuring an extra zip pocket and few small open pockets for structuring your items. The size of the interior makes it an ideal shopping bag for the weekend or just for work. It’s an excellent substitute of the discontinued GST design and it can be considered as a collectable item.
