Dior unveils five new watches in celebration of its 70th anniversary

Categories:Other Brands


It’s been a high ride for Dior in the last few years. The iconic label has presented us with some top-notch horological beauties in the recent past and it’s back again to weave magic on our wrists with the introduction of five stunning pieces. Each of these exclusive watches spell class the Dior way and are a unique representation of the brand’s 70 yearlong existence.

Introduced specially in time for the label’s 70th anniversary celebrations, the watches each bear a luxe golden touch that draws a not so subtle reference to the iconic saga of Dior. As part of the new collection, the brand has introduced new versions of the La Mini D de Dior as well as the Dior VIII Montaigne. As for the former, the signature ribbon-bracelet pattern has been replicated again, only this time with weaves of a thousand gold fibers. The watch will appear in two variants, one with a classic gold dial and another in teal for a one on one U.S release.

Next, we have three editions of the Dior VIII Montaigne that also come in exclusive gold versions – each carrying unique geometric patterns in gold along with a smothering of diamonds. The trio carry a patterned leather strap and demonstrated use of herringbone, caning, and houndstooth patterns, all staple to Dior’s seven decades of operations. This indeed is a supreme way of bringing in the brand’s 70th anniversary. Care to partake in the celebrations?

Moynat: Singapore’s First Boutique To Open At Ngee Ann City

Categories:Other Brands

IMAGES: MOYNAT

I’m feeling all kinds of excited as I’m typing this, since the brand I’ve been following both online (and off) for at least the last 5 years will be opening her very first gallery in Singapore. Yes, boys and girls, French luxury atelier Moynat will finally be opening her doors to all next week (Friday, 28 July 2017) at Ngee Ann City.

Founded in 1849 and revived in 2011, Singapore will be only the 9th country in the world (and the first country in Southeast Asia) to have her own Moynat boutique. So what can you expect from one of my favourite brands that pride itself in using only the best of the best, from the dedicated craftsmen to the finest leathers (both of which I’ve witnessed firsthand)? Well, for starters, beautifully designed bags dreamt up by Artistic Director Ramesh Nair, taking inspiration from its founder Pauline Moynat who was (and still is) the only female trunk maker in history when she launched the label back in the 1800s.

At Singapore’s Moynat Gallery you’ll find trunks, bags, leather goods and textiles for both men and women (some of which you’ll see if you follow this link), along with the opportunity to customise your own bags and trunks. Even Moynat’s signature personalisation service, where an artist will hand-paint initials on your bags, will be available here.

Also, if you are keen to have a look at what Moynat has to offer (and find out more about what they do, how they do it and have an up-close and personal look yourself), I’ll be at the boutique on 28 and 29 July (and reliving my memories from being a Metro salesgirl salesboy), so if you want get a quick introductory tour from yours truly, simply leave a comment here, drop me an email or even DM me on Instagram and I’ll set the appointment up. See you all next week.

24 Sèvres: Shop Online With Le Bon Marché

Categories:Other Brands

IMAGE: 24SÈVRES

We at Bagaholicboy have been keeping tabs on 24 Sèvres for months now, eagerly awaiting its online debut and today we are happy to announce that it’s finally up and running! Touted to be the next big online shopping destination, 24 Sèvres is managed by Parisian department store giant Le Bon Marché that is owned by LVHM, which would also explain why you’ll be seeing leather bags from the likes of Dior and Louis Vuitton for sale online for the very first time ever.

Scanning through the list of designers, there are many brands now available online that weren’t previously available before, and besides Dior and Louis Vuitton, there’s also Miu Miu, Moynat and Prada. *squeal*

And before we start checking out stuff already in our cart *double squeal*, here are 10 things you need to know about 24Sevres.com stat.

01 – While it is true that luxury brands like Dior and Louis Vuitton are available for sale, they do not ship to Singapore at the moment (which you’ll realise once you change your location to Singapore upon checkout). Bah.

02 – There are, however, exceptions. Take, for example, Moynat, which has 7 pieces from their Mambo collaboration up for grabs. Baby steps, ok?

03 – And speaking of changing the location, once you do that, you’ll realise that prices offered online and in Singapore are not much different. Case in point? Loewe’s T-Pouch is priced at SGD926 (you’ll be charged EUR615) online but in Singapore it retails for SGD950.

04 – Express shipping to Singapore will only take 2 days and set you back by EUR20. Not bad, not bad at all.

05 – Brands you can buy online if you are based in Singapore? Lots. There’s everyone from the likes of Chloé to Gucci, alongside Givenchy, Loewe, Miu Miu, Prada and Valentino, just to name a few.

06 – Offerings now are on the scant side, but since this is still the soft launch we are pretty sure more will be added to their online inventory in the coming months.

07 – Also, everything offered online now is skewed towards women, so boys, you got keep those fingers crossed and just wait a little more.

08 – As with every good online shopping destination, there are exclusives to be found nowhere else. From a very special seasonal Hammock Bag from Loewe (SGD7096) to a pair of blue striped Roger Vivier flats (SGD7000), there are gems to be found if you look hard enough.

09 – Besides bags, you’ll also find RTW and shoes, alongside beauty offerings from brands we’ve never even heard before. Ever heard of Casanera? Or Granado? Maybe Phebo? Well, they are all available online at 24Sevres.com!

10 – Sadly though, there’s no sight of Céline, even though almost every other luxury brand under LVHM’s marque has made an appearance already. Still, a girl (or this boy) can dream and hopefully they will be offered online (and to Singapore) soon enough.

VALENTINO RESORT 2018 RUNWAY BAG

Categories:Other Brands

Valentino-Resort-2018-Runway-Bag-Collection

As Valentino Garavani beautifully summed it: “Elegance is the balance between proportion, emotion, and surprise,” the same thing can be said with the latest Valentino Resort 2018 Runway Collection. Exquisitely beautiful with its divine and dreamy artistry with a focus on romanticism, hiphop and punk, it looks like this Italian fashion house perfectly nailed its Resort 2018 Runway Collection.

Valentino-Resort-2018-Runway-Bag-Collection-8

Weaving its magic, we couldn’t help but gush and let ourselves be drawn by its theme. The bags on the other hand are another thing for they are exceptionally stunning as well. Take a look at this eccentric bubble gum pink colored purse which screams feminine punk at its finest with its thick diamond quilting paired with stark white-toned rock studs. As you can see, it boasts of a flap top with a flip lock closure for an added sense of security. It also has a top handle and a chained strap for effortless hand, shoulder, and cross body carrying. Lastly, it features a nametag.

Valentino-Resort-2018-Runway-Bag-Collection-29

Another bag that appealed most to us would be this elegant black shoulder bag with a feathery accent at the topmost part. Made from genuine leather paired with gold-tone hardware, this beauty of a bag is a perfect day-to-evening companion. It features a chained shoulder strap for easy hand, shoulder, and cross-body carrying.

Dior #DiorAddict Medium Flap Bag

Categories:Other Brands

IMAGES: BAGAHOLICBOY

If this bag were a fragrance, it would be a heady mix of brass and leather, given that combination of aged gold-tone hardware and soft supple lambskin that’s simply too irresistible to resist. A new offering from Dior’s Pre-Fall 2017 collection (you can follow this link to see more) that’s part of the #DiorAddict line of bags, it’s also the one that has my heart.

Let me elaborate. Measuring some 24 cm by 16 cm (this is for the Medium size), the DiorAddict Flap Bag is quite simply one of the most beautiful creations from Maria Grazia Chiuri’s design team yet. Not exactly a new shape, but when paired with that vintage-inspired clasp that’s topped with DIOR, it’s a combination that works. Coupled with the stitched Cannage leather that’s a Dior signature, you can wear the bag long or short, depending on how you adjust the long sling.

IMAGE: BAGAHOLICBOY

On the inside of the bag you’ll find suede, with a single gusseted body that allows you to put as much as you want (or as little as you need) without ruining its shape. There’s also the pair of pockets on each side, one a patch compartment, the other a zip pocket for those things you prefer to keep out of sight.

Priced at SGD4500 for the Medium (or SGD4200 for the Small that measures 21 cm by 13 cm), it’s a classic-in-the-making from the French luxury house that you should buy for the following 3 reasons. Firstly, it won’t date anytime soon, secondly, it’s much more affordable than other similarly shaped bags on the market today and lastly, this little darling is really easy on the eyes which is always a good thing.
