Sara Battaglia might not ring a bell for the uninitiated, but news of her bags in store at On Pedder will have those in the know perking right up. Best known for the luscious fringing and embellishments that adorn her bags, the fashion forward succumbed to the general ornate aesthetic of her designs despite the defining normcore movement at that point in time. Equally impressive is the anecdote of Battaglia crafting her first bag at age six — more advanced for her age than any of us can speak of.
Making an entrance in Singapore (and also Hong Kong) with her fall/winter 2015 collection, the Teresa shoulder bag and Jasmine bucket bag will probably not stay on the shelves for long, with its seasonal update of amped up fringing. The best way to tote the Battaglia favourites? A crisp shirt and relaxed denim that will let the fancy fringing take the spotlight. Other designs like the Amber, David Backpack and Teresa Clutch offer a more conservative — but still outstanding — take on the iconic fringe for the less gutsy.
Sara Battaglia bags will be available at the On Pedder boutiques in Hong Kong and Singapore from the 9th and 13th of July respectively.
