About two weeks back I had the opportunity to sneak a peek into the future….
The bags of 2013!
One of the function rooms of The Gallery Hotel was turned into a bag heaven, literally. 5 exciting Italian labels were showcased – Braccialini, Gherardini, Gabs, Araldi (Men’s) and Tintamar. I probably can’t talk about everything otherwise this post would go on forever, so I’ll show you bits and pieces and what I really dig!
– Gabs –
What do you feel like today? Sexy, or modest? These “Transformer Bags” from Gabs turned me into a kid in a candy store. Not only can you change the “designs” on the bag, they also morph into three different shapes with a few snap buttons! (See my video at the end of this post as I TRY to show you the different shapes)
Two of my favourite bags from Gabs! I soooo want one, but they’re only out next year! :(
How can you resist that adorable puppy face?
More Gabs bags!
And the smaller things. Color me happy indeed!
Totally loveeeeee the Holga clutch! Perfect for photos where you want to hide your face. Can you tell I’m already being really biased? The Gabs Collection topped my favorites list! The fact that it’s “Gabs” probably contributed to that too… Gabs, Gabrielle… get it? ^_^
– Tintamar –
Tintamar bags, in a word – FUNCTIONAL.
That grey bag on the right is 3 bags in one. A day bag, a detachable laptop carry bag, and an evening clutch. Now that’s what I call functional.
The range boasts of all sorts of bags we need to stay organised, including bag organisers in super candy colors. I LIKE.
– Gherardini –
These, are by Gherardini. More suited for the mature woman, I’d like to think I am not suited to rock these just yet. Nonetheless, a simple yet chic collection for mummies with good taste. There are more bags I need to show you!
– Tua by Braccialini –
These bags were made for the young, and the young at heart. This puppy messenger bag was another one that made me go AWWWW. Perfect for the creative girl on the go! If you like your bags bold and quirky, you’ll love Tua.
Fancy a scene?
Braccialini Temi Collection – SS2013
While Tua features more quirky bags, the Braccialini range is rather different..
I particularly love this simple leather tote. Simple, chic, no messy details, just a nice neat tote that’ll fit everything. Another one on the “WANTED LIST”.
– Araldi for Men –
Araldi – dubbed as the “Belt Heaven” will be hitting local shores in Dec 2012 / Jan 2013. This novel concept will be a first in Asia with over 250 ‘mix-and-match’ options for luxury offerings for men’s belts, shoes and bags, tailored to the needs of the stylish modern man.
They say an Italian man’s shoes must always match his belt…
Now remember the video I promised? Here it is. Please forgive my incredibly amateur “editing”. I don’t even know if the annotations were saved properly but oh well, knock yourselves out!
And there it is… your sneak peek into 2013! And this was probably my longest post with the most photo content. I hope you enjoyed every bit of it! Enjoy the long weekend! :) xx
