As if I don't already have enough bags (as my boyfriend would tell you), I've recently been made a BRAND AMBASSADOR of Tocco Tenero! *screams in delight*
For the next 6 months, I will be checking out Tocco Tenero's latest collections here and sharing with you what I know as heavenly little pieces of leathery goodness!
You will want to know these little delicious facts about Tocco Tenero's Bags:
❥ Nothing is priced above SGD200!
❥ All their bags are made of 100% leather! O.O!
❥ Their bag designs are very versatile. You can tweak it a little to give it a whole new shape (more on this later).
Tocco Tenero's Collections in-store April 2012!
As is necessary for every brand of bag, you'll find that Tocco Tenero has a great range of sizes and types for your every occassion. They have clutches, big carry calls, sling bags, shoulder bags, hobos, messengers, and most anything you can think of!
Let's check out what they have in stores now!
I wanted to feature this first cos I loveeee the lovely watercolour pastel colours and the fact that both bags (Pink and Blue) you see here are the SAME bag! You can fold it and sling over, or unfold it and ta-dah!! Another whole new bag! Retailing at $149.00.
Some of the shoulder sling bags. I like the straps! ^^
The purple bag at the bottom left corner is another wonder in itself. It can be used as a shoulder sling or as a backpack! So versatile to say the least! Only $199.00.
For a moment there I wasn't sure if these lovely prints belonged to a zebra or a tiger. -.-! Hahahaha! But these are lovely!! These are animal prints done right on a bag I say! I'll take the little cute hand-carry square bag (on the right) if I wasn't in need of a good carry all bag!!
Big carry all bags and some shoulder slings. All made of good quality leather.
They even had little pouches and wallets! In all designs as well!
See the top shelf's 3 bags? Those 3 bags are the one and same bag in different colous. You can adjust it a little to change its shape and you can also choose to hand carry, shoulder carry or put on the strap and sling it over your body! And yes, this is THE BAG. THE BAG that caught my eye!!
This bag is called "Leilani", retailing at $189.00.
It is a large satchel with dual tube handles. The bag's body is a red embossed "irregular granite" print trimmed with pebble grain cowhide. Front flap decorated with round mushroom studs. Bag features D-ring and clip to anchor the sides down, changing the overall shape of the bag and adding to its' versatility. Long leather strap included to provide additional options of shoulder or body sling. Light gold hardware.
Trust me the RED is BEAUTIFUL. I chose the beige bag cos perhaps it could match a larger variety of colours. But looking back at the red now makes me a WEE BIT regretful that I didn't get RED!!
My Style, My Needs, My Bag
I lean towards a classic look for work mostly but I'm trying to move my dressing style to a more vibrant feel lately. I always have too many things I need to bring so for this month, I'm looking for a good carry all bag that allows me to at least carry is comfortably on my shoulder. I will want a design that is classic enough to match vibrant colours and still look "professional" enough for work. I don't want something boring and corporate. I am looking for that OOMPH factor and Leilani did it all for me!
It had so many useful inner pockets and it could carry so many things that I had to stop myself from putting more in it for I HATE heavy bags!
If you ask me, do go check out Tocco Tenero's range. Good quality 100% leather bags (super important esp if you're like me, an unintentional bag torturer) at less than $200. It's a steal!
If you don't find anything you like, wait another month and check out their new arrivals or come back to my blog here to save yourself the trip!
