Burberry Ramadan Patchwork Collection

Categories:Other Brands


To celebrate the month of Ramadan, Burberry is launching a special collection just for the Middle Eastern markets, and while us here in Singapore (and the region) won’t be getting any, I am taking this opportunity to showcase Burberry’s Patchwork, their bag-of-the-season that’s a true gem in all senses of the word.

Small as it might be, from its accordion-gusseted body to the oversized buckle on the front of the bag. Then there’s the sling, which is thick and chunky, and you could even say it’s out of proportion with the bag proper, but I guess that’s why this juxtaposition works. And because it is as thick as it is, it does sit comfortably on the shoulder. Or you could just remove the sling and use the bag as a clutch, but I would prefer to just leave it be and let the sling hang ever so nonchalantly at the side.

It’s a head-turner, it’s a statement bag but the best thing about it is the fact that each piece is also a one-of-a-kind. Instead of making one bag many times, they made the Patchwork in over 3000 variations, which means you’ll never (and I repeat, never) spot the same bag on Mrs Tay who’s having dim sum with you and the gals at the same table during your society get-togethers.

Priced at SGD3795 apiece, which in my opinion is quite the steal as well, considering how much exotic snakeskin they use on each Patchwork bag, you can head on down to Burberry stores in Singapore or online to view what’s available before deciding on which one you love the best.

The Burberry Fringe Suede Bucket Bag is inspired by the 70’s. The bag is so very bohemian with its layered fringes. Big enough to fit your daily essentials for work with a small detachable leather pouch to store loose change, the Burberry Bucket bag is available in chocolate brown, tan and black.

Burberry Large Bridle House Check Hobo

Categories:Other Brands

burberry_large-bridle-house-check-hoboEver so often I’ll get an email or two, asking about Burberry totes and hobos from a particularly season. And if I recall correctly, it was the same season when I was in London for the runway presentation, my first ever, many years ago.

The bags in question looked similar to this, the Burberry Large Bridle House Check Hobo, and with its thick bridle detailing, House Check coated canvas body, large and roomy disposition, it’s certainly not hard to see why it’s so memorable. Priced atSGD1995 and measuring 36 cm by 37 cm, I would often direct those queries online, and tell them to check it out in Dark Tan or Black (shown above).

And if the one here is much too big for your liking, there are others to choose from in many other shapes and sizes, including totes, bucket bags and clutches in the sameHouse Check/bridled leather detailing.

Burberry Prorsum Metallic Leather Tote

Categories:Other Brands

burbery_prorsum_metallic-leather-toteIf I had to pick just one colour from the trio of hues from S/S13’s line-up of metallic leather totes from Burberry Prorsum, it would have to be this one in Metallic Petrol Blue. Measuring 40 cm across by 42 cm in height, the calf leather tote is laminated with a layer of foil, naturally explaining the metallic sheen that while bright, isn’t blinding, which can only be a good thing.

Besides being a great bag to carry around especially in the dark of night (I’m pretty sure it’s reflective too, no?), the fact that it comes with a large zip pocket and 3 rooomy-esque patch pockets on the inside can only be a bonus, especially for those with organisational issues.

And for those wanting something a tad more ‘eye-catching’, it also comes in Metallic Cowslip (a nice summery yellow) and Metallic Blue (which is simply, well, blue). As for myself, I’m sticking to the one in Metallic Petrol Blue, which reminds me of the colour of the sea, mint ice cream and greenbacks. All good, if you ask me.
