Hermès Enveloppe Trio

Categories:Other Brands

IMAGE: HERMÈS

I was beginning to think that this was a figment of my imagination, something I dreamt up that couldn’t have possibly existed since I couldn’t remember where I had first seen it. Till I started trawling through Hermès’ online site (yes, it is still one of my favourite things to do after a long week at work) and bingo, it was just sitting there staring back at me.

Simply known as the Enveloppe Trio, it’s simply 2 zip pouches that come housed within an envelope ‘folder’. And because it’s from Hermès, every item in this 3-piece set is naturally made of leather, Mysore goatskin, to be exact. Measuring 20.5 cm by 15 cm for the largest piece, this would function like a wallet for me, and I’ll use the smaller zip pouch for credit cards, the larger zip one for cash and other bits, and house both pieces within the envelope. Or I’ll use them separately, depending on what I need for that particular day, which I guess is the beauty of this mix-and-match leather suite.

Priced at GBP920 (which would make it easily over SGD2000 locally), no word yet if they are available in Singapore, or if they will come in more combinations for us to choose from. My dream set? Something in deep green, another piece in maybe a dark blue and housed in either a grey or black envelope. How about you?

The Balenciaga Papier Triple Zip Around That Rivals the Céline Trio

Categories:Other Brands

When the Céline Trio became one of the most sought-after bags around, it was kind of funny to me. Don’t get me wrong; I bought into the hype and purchased two Céline Trios and really love the bags, but it’s also incredibly simple–almost too simple. I guess it showed up at the right time, when many shoppers wanted an easy, simple bag that could actually fit a bunch of stuff. While I still carry my Trios (they are great for travel!), I want a little something more, style-wise.

When I got my hands on the Balenciaga Papier Triple Zip Around Bag (sometimes called the Envelope Bag or Crossbody Bag), it was love. The bag rivals the Trio, as it also offers three compartments, but there is a much more distinct style and edginess to the design.

Similarly to the Trio, the bag has a long crossbody strap, but I’d venture to say it might be a tad more spacious than the Trio. I should have done a What Fits side-by-side comparison, so next time I grab this bag, I will do that for you. The leather is a durable calfskin, and there is a triangular flap on front that is very Balenciaga. The bag’s dimensions are 11″H x 12.6″W x 4.7″D and you can buy this bag via Neiman Marcus for $1,335.
