My Bag Collection #31
Helmut Lang Canvas Doctor's Bag
Helmut Lang...a name that almost been forgotten until the resurrection of the brand recently with a new collection by a new creative team. So I thought I should do a post on this bag, which fortunately was acquired when Helmut Lang, himself was still in creative control. Helmut Lang is known for his well cut clothing, simple and yet provocative modern clothing. As does his clothing, this beautiful canvas Doctor's bag has an understated charm without being too flashy or trashy.
I love the colour of the bag. The beige canvas with the tone-on-tone Beige leather handles and magnetic buckled closure tabs makes this a very gorgeous daily companion. The top of the bag is reinforced with metal frames, similar to a doctor's bag and features internal pockets and base metal studs. The handy size could drop in quite a handful of your belongings. But I doubt the handles is made for carrying laptops. I dare not try!
One flaw about the bag is it is made of soft canvas and with a metal frame for the opening, that means the bag is slouchy when not filled and the heavy top keeps drooping down when you open the bag to get the contents. Fortunately, I found I can live with that small inconvenience so the bag is still a charmer to me.
Retail price: Approx. SGD $800. Where to buy: Helmut Lang Boutique at Pacific Plaza (Now Closed)
