New lease of life

Something old, something new — rediscover your arsenal of bags with the season's It-accessory

All bags have their prime in their wearer's eyes no matter how beautifully constructed they are. That's just human nature — we get sick of things once in awhile. But instead of constantly handing over a pretty penny for yet another purse, why not dip into your well curated stock pile and retrieve an old favourite? 

Straight from 
Valentino, Prada, and Rebecca Minkoff's runways, these embellished and embroidered interchangeable bag straps that topped our mental to-buy list during the show season have now hit their retail stride. Inlcuding, the adobrable candy coloured and animal printed versions that Louis Vuitton has just launched. Titled the Bandouliere, the range of bag straps are available epi leather, python skin and the maison's heritage logo print — take your pick from the exotic and whimsical to show your old bags some love.

All functioning with a straightforward clip-on and off mechanism, get creative with mixing the brands and you'll end up with a personalised bag that's one-of-a-kind. A black Prada tote paired up with Louis Vuitton's colour-blocking? #GoForIt. Pick from the rocker chic, Navajo inspired, and undeniably sweet. Whichever you prefer, there's something in store for everyone.   

The Louis Vuitton Bandouliere collection is available in Singapore at the Louis Vuitton Island Maison located at Marina Bay Sands,  and the Ngee Ann City boutique.
