Mother’s Day 2020: The best gifts for the bag-obsessed mums
Shower your love
It’s that time of the year again, where we celebrate mummy dearest and shower her with (extra) love and affection. Amid these difficult times, it’s more important now than ever to show your appreciation! If you have no idea where to start, we’ve got a list of florists that can deliver fresh blooms to your doorstep, breakfast-in-bed ideas if you’d like to whip up a special meal this Sunday, and a wide range of gifts that will appease the fussiest of mums.
But if the queen in your life, like ours, loves bags, as most luxury boutiques are re-opening its doors under the CMCO, you can also spoil her with the latest Spring/Summer 2020 drops that will make a stylish addition to her closet. Gift now,
steal borrow later. *wink*
Check out our 11 top picks below:
Giorgio Armani La Prima bag
First introduced back in 1995, Giorgio Armani’s La Prima bag was reinvented and revived late last year. While retaining its squarish shape and the distinct pleats at the bottom, the updated version includes an adjustable shoulder strap that can be elongated or shortened, and three compartments on the inside for you to store your cardholder, mirror, and lipstick. The classic Armani red is, needless to say, our top colour pick.
Gucci 1955 Horsebit shoulder bag
Looking for more designs that are a blast from the past? The Gucci 1955 Horsebit was recreated from an archival design from—you guessed it—65 years ago, and it continues to highlight the double ring and bar details with a modern spirit. This small flap design comes with a leather lining that gives the monogram canvas a polished contrast.
Dior Book Tote
Dior’s Book Tote is arguably one of the most sought-after designs in the past two years, and this season, creative director Maria Grazia Chiuri has introduced an updated version in smooth Rose des Vents calfskin leather with a tonal embossed logo in front. The understated design is perfect for minimalists, though we suggest personalising it with your choice of scarf.
Burberry small TB bag
If your mum loves classic carriers that can withstand trends and seasons, the TB bag from Burberry is it. Featuring the Thomas Burberry Monogram clasp, the bag comes in a super sleek design makes it an ideal day-to-night carrier.
Fendi Mini Baguette bag
You can never go wrong with a Baguette, but the mini version—in the prettiest baby blue—has our full attention. This design features a top-handle leather strap and a leather-chain handle, which can be removed according to your preference.
Louis Vuitton Twist Mini bag
If you’re looking for something that’ll be a punchy addition to your mum’s classic wardrobe, the Louis Vuitton Twist mini in neon is the perfect pick. A smaller interpretation of the classic LV Twist Lock, the carrier is made from the same Epi grained leather and features a silver-tone chain.
Loewe Pochette drawstring bag
What if we told you you can pamper your mum and contribute to a good cause at one go? Between April to August 2020, with every product sold from Loewe’s latest Paula’s Ibiza collection, the brand will donate 40 Euros to educational projects for children affected by COVID-19. This Pochette drawstring bag that’s made from three different materials—raffia, canvas, and calfskin—will stand out against a sea of plain straw bags.
Chanel mini flap bag
A bag wardrobe is never complete without a Chanel flap, and if your mum already owns the classic colour(s), step things up by gifting her Maison’s latest design in its signature tweed. The eye-catching combination may seem like it's hard to style, but trust us when we say it’s more versatile than you think.
Salvatore Ferragamo Trifolio Top Handle bag
The roomy Trifolio top-handle bag from Salvatore Ferragamo is great for working mums who are all for roomy options. The simple colour-block amps up the allure of the otherwise plain bag, while the brand’s signature Gancini hardware seals the design with an elegant touch.
Saint Laurent Jamie bag
The Saint Laurent Jamie bag is roomy, trendy, and chic all in one—what’s not to like? This fail-proof pick in black is finished off with the brand’s signature metal initials and chain-strap that can be adjusted to become a crossbody or shoulder bag, and it’s another great everyday bag on our list.
Versace Virtus Western clutch
Versace’s Virtus bag has also been gaining steam as of late, and the one on our list is in a clutch form that comes with a removable chain. We love how the studded acanthus-leaf details complement the Barocco ‘V’ clasp, and the combo of gold-and-black hues that'll never fail.
