Hermès S/S16 Collier de Chien

This isn’t necessarily a new post on the Collier de Chien, and truth be told I did many of these posts before. And there isn’t anything actually new about it either, well save for the fact that it now comes in RGH (rose-gold plated) as well, which frankly already happened long ago. There’s also palladium (silver), gold (yellow-gold plated) and something called Permabrass (correct me if I’m wrong), a shade or so lighter than your regular yellow gold.

It comes in 3 sizes, XS, S, and L, with girls usually going for the first two sizes and boys opting for the last. And then there’s the leather they come in, which range from the smooth and suave Swift calfskin to the reliably grained Epsom calfskin that’s pretty good at warding off accidental scratches and nicks.

I guess the point I’m trying to make after everything I’ve said is this. While it used to be harder to spot (and buy) a Collier de Chien in the past (finding one in any store was akin to spotting a unicorn in the enchanted forest), increased production and decreased demand (again, I’m just guessing here) have made it easier to actually get the one your heart so desires, which frankly was unheard of in the past.

On Hermès’ UK online portal alone I found the 15 you see above, each one different, each one prettier than the last. Priced at GBP780 apiece (or around SGD1500 after conversion), I’ll sign off with its prices in EUR, USD as well, which are EUR975 andUSD1150, or SGD1495 and SGD1557 after conversion respectively.

Saint Laurent Baby Classic Sac De Jour

How small is small when it comes to Saint Laurent’s Classic Sac De Jour? From the regular SDJ that’s good for work to the Nano that measures a wee 22 cm across (there are 4 sizes in all, by the way), the size I’m adoring the most that’s small but not too small (yes, there is such a thing when it comes to bags, no?) is the one that’s appropriately named Baby.

One up from the Nano and coming in at almost 26 cm across, the Baby Classic Sac De Jour is in my opinion the one you’ll have to get if you’re looking for a good city-sized bag, one that’s big enough for the day’s essentials, but not too big until it becomes a convenient dumping ground for things you don’t need in the first place, which I have witnessed for myself when I poked around in some women friends’ bags, from three mini umbrellas (really, who needs 3 umbrellas?) to 7 lip balms gathered at the bottom of the bag.

Wear it by the sling or just use it via its top handles, the Baby Classic SDJ is priced atSGD3190. Yes, I know, it’s not cheap right? Then again, what luxury bag is nowadays, so you might as well spend your hard-earned money on something you really love, yes?

It’s available in grained or smooth leather variations, although I’m always partial to anything grained since in my books it would mean it would hold up to accidental nicks and scratches better. However, that would be your choice at the end of the day, as would be the colour you pick, be it Lipstick Fuchsia, Royal Blue and Yellow.
