Editor-In-Chief Wilson Lim: The Padded Cassette
I’ve a penchant for small bags because I like to be handsfree and not have my pockets stuffed while I’m on the move. As an advocate of non-black accessories, the striking green of this one ticks all the boxes for the type of bag I would want.
Bonus point goes to Daniel Lee’s interpretation of the classic weave in a Maxi Intrecciato — people will be looking (and lusting), which is the whole reason why a big is being carried.
Digital Editor Bryan Goh: The Chain Pouch
I already own the classic Pouch and thought “hey, that’s enough — you should be buying cat food instead” but when I fiddled around with this beauty on set, I was #sold.
The addition of the chain now allows me to go handsfree to text, flag for a bus or to slap someone Annalise Keating-style and the best part? It makes a delightful jingling sound. That’s the sound of the coins I’m willing to part with.
Associate Watch & Features Editor Asaph Low: The Backpack
Adventure calls for a trusty companion that never fails you in the face of extreme and dire situations. The ruggedness of this bag is capable of taking a bashing while looking good doing it.
It doubles up as a plush pillow too when push comes to shove.
Fashion Stylist & Writer Manfred Lu
I’ve always had a fond liking for all things 1990s bags — the simple, off the shoulder, decently sized variants that holds nothing but your phone (which is fine for me considering that’s all I usually carry out).
This nappa leather crossbody that encompasses the brand’s iconic Intrecciato weaving technique is everything that era was great for, without all the unnecessary logo mania — which is why it’s the perfect bag for me.
