T Picks: The Best Bags of 2019

By T: The New York Times Style Magazine Singapore

Bottega Veneta Padded Marie Bag

Bottega Veneta has, over the decades, built itself a reputation as a purveyor of leather craftsmanship. This season, the Italian maison continues to hold on to its laurels as it expands its vocabulary with its Padded family of carryalls — conceived through the employment of a high-frequency heat-sealing technique. Bottega Veneta Padded Marie bag, S$6,920.

Burberry Lola Bag

The Lola bag continues to write the narrative established at Burberry by its newly instated chief creative officer, Riccardo Tisci, with the debut of the house’s TB bag. The initials of the house’s founder, Thomas Burberry, rendered as an identifiable logo hardware sit front and centre of the carryall, paying homage to the maison’s longstanding heritage. Burberry Lola bag, S$2,590.

Tod’s Micro Bucket Bag

Since its introduction in the 1970s, Tod’s rubber studs that initially adorned the sole of its revered Gommino loafer have become a house icon. This season, the distinguishable studs lend a subtle edge to the house’s line of bucket bags. Tod’s micro bucket bag, S$1,370.

Hermès Bag With Barrel-Bolt Clasp

In the business of leather craftsmanship, Hermès sits on a high pedestal. This season, its unmatched prowess shows its form in the maison’s trapezoid carryall — seamlessly crafted from a combination of three different types of leather. Hermès bag with barrel-bolt clasp, S$9,400.

Coach Tabby Shoulder Bag

Coach’s Tabby shoulder bag is a timeless nod to its revered heritage. Its design is pulled out from the 1970s archives and hardware and takes its cue from the house’s long-established signatures. Coach Tabby shoulder bag, price on request.

Longchamp La Voyageuse Bag

Navigating luxury on its own terms, Longchamp, for the first time in its 70-year-old history, introduced its LGP monogram earlier this year. The distinguishable pattern demarks a new chapter at the French maison as it lends its graphic appeal to the house’s debut line of La Voyageuse carryalls designed with the contemporary woman-on-the-go in mind. Longchamp La Voyageuse bag, S$1,500.
