The Material Boy #261
Polo Ralph Lauren Pieced Canvas Tote
I finally decided to give my 'shopping ban' a break after working like a horse this whole week. Waiting sometimes is much more hard work than actually doing anything. :-P
So with the new business pitch progressing at last, and incoming weekends going to be invested in the office, I decided I deserve a break and reward. So what better ways to achieve that goal than to hit the stores in Orchard Road. I shop in the 'name' of my readers!:-P Aren't I that 'noble'?:-P. Okay okay, before I hear rotten eggs flying my way. Here's something I spotted during this evening's shopping expedition.
Presenting my latest discovery of a bag 'gem', the Polo Ralph Lauren Pieced Canvas Tote, with a equestrian feel:-) Bagaholicboy recently blogged about Hermes range of canvas bags (Country Lane Collections) that is perfect for the horse riding gentlemen of countryside manors and huge lush estates. And if Hermes is out of your price range (seriously I think the range is insanely overpriced and not worth it. It's canvas afterall) , then this Polo Ralph Lauren Pieced Canvas Tote could serve the 'Baron' in you well. Crafted with patchwork canvas, embroidered with emblems (like some gentlemen's alumni club), this tote also features a tan leather base and handles. Very colourful and well shaped, a piece of bag candy that works great with polo tees and shorts for an elegant and sporty look.
There are 2 versions available at the Polo Ralph Lauren store in Paragon. The version inside the display window is my preferred, having more intricate patch work and a more pleasant colour combination. Me love! (I think only one piece of each is available...so you know what to do if you are interested!)
