Hermès Birkin: Refined Perfection
The HERMÈS BIRKIN BAG is finely hand-crafted by Parisian artisans and embodies effortless French chic, accentuated by its convenient function. Rich in heritage and history, Hermès divulges the manufacturing of the Birkin Bag to no more than 200 highly qualified leather workers each year. Situated in the French countryside, the expertise of the luxury brand once known for equestrian equipment has been passed on for generations.
As tradition and excellence are deeply rooted in Hermès’s values, each Birkin Bag is crafted by a single artisan. This process takes up to 40 hours, from first cutting the leather to the very last finishing touches. Only after passing rigorous inspection, the coveted and scarce handbags are released for sale. Every Birkin Bag’s journey begins with long-standing artisanal expertise – and it could end in the arms of your most favourite person.
Dior Book Tote: The Travel Essential
Introduced by Maria Grazia Chiuri, creative director at Dior, for the brand’s S/S 2018 collection, the Book Tote took over fashion-capital airports around the globe. The handbag has a capacious inside to fit all necessities for a weekend getaway. With its straightforward interior – no pockets, zippers or dividers – and made from sturdy calfskin, the Dior Book Tote is a versatile piece that seamlessly transitions from office bag to vacation tote. This model comes in monochrome black and with the signature embossed Christian Dior logo.
Hermès Kelly: The Forever Piece
Meticulously manufactured, the HERMÈS KELLY BAG is an iconic piece that unifies excellent craftmanship, feminine design and distinctive practicality. Whether you opt for SEASON-LESS BLACK or an exotic SIZE 28 OSTRICH KELLY BAG in vibrant fuchsia, the handbag’s retro aesthetic and sumptuous leathers make it an exceptional addition to any bag enthusiast’s wardrobe. Named after Princess Grace of Monaco, the Kelly Bag’s signature trapezoid shape, in concert with its diligently crafted materials, impart a hint of royal grandeur. As such, the Hermès Kelly Bag is an impeccable gift for appreciators of sophisticated taste.
Customised Chanel: Truly One of a Kind
Longing for a truly bespoke gift? Imagine the timeless design of the Chanel Jumbo Flap, garnished with a hand-painted Pierre stone pattern in shaded grey tones. As part of our SACLÀB Geometrica Collection, this unique specimen made of soft lambskin adds an artistic twist to an iconic handbag. Underlined by shiny metal hardware and quilted leather, our CUSTOMISED CHANEL JUMBO FLAP BAG is a work of art and wardrobe staple alike. As a token of admiration, this bag is just as unique as the person it’s meant for.
Hermès 2424: The Ultimate Office Bag
With a spacious, laptop-and-more-fitting interior, the 2424 perfectly meets the requirements of modern-day top dogs. Coloured in Capucine, a bright yet unobtrusive orange, the smooth Togo leather and slightly slouchy design turn this never-worn HERMÈS 2424 into a reliable office accessory for your loved one – whether a professional journey is just commencing or career goals have been successfully met.
Chanel 2.55 Reissue Rhomb: A Sharp Silhouette
Think cocktail attire, New Year’s Eve celebrations and bursts of glitz and glam: with its recognisable shape and coloured in festive metallic silver, the CHANEL 2.55 LAMB REISSUE RHOMB exudes edginess. This hard-to-get gem was part of the Chanel F/W 2008 collection and is most likely found on every connoisseur’s wishlist.
