CH Carolina Herrera has introduced the next Spring 2016 essential to own, a bag for the new-age woman of the world who speaks the universal language of style. Taking inspiration and paying homage to the 18th Century explorer Jeanne Baret and her first voyage around the world, the Baret collection boasts an array of leather goods tailored to practical design philosophies made for the new womanhood and the multi-faceted lifestyles we now live as women.
Web Editor of BAZAAR, Aisyah Yusof channeled the gallant identity of the Baret Bag and shares her favourite BAZAAR covers and personal holiday images from a leisure vacation to St. Tropez and work stints in Singapore to cultural experiences of Sicily. The selected destinations are based on the colours and nomadic aura of the Baret Bag.
Destination 1: St Tropez
There is nothing like France in the Summer, from the small towns of Corsica in the South of France to hidden oceanic enclaves in Cassis, Marseille. Coastal utopia is aplenty and shades of blue and emerald is the iconic colour scheme. The Baret Bag is the perfect bag that will nest your essentials from La Môle, the airport of St. Tropez Airport to an upbeat and energetic Mediterranean lunch at Bagatelle Beach Club, Ramatuelle.
Destination 2: Singapore Sling
Singapore is a metropolis tailored for the hustle of fast paced professionals living in hyper-connected world. The Baret Bag in navy suede embodies style with substance and a natural fit to the expeditious work culture of the city. With the clever use of the Baret Bag’s interchangeable strap in a bright pop of red along with other accents of rouge in heels and a cuff bracelet from CH by Carolina Herrera, a stylish twist to your busy day is seamlessly sewed into the power ensemble of the working woman.
Destination 3: Sicily
“Sundrunk Sicily” as I termed it was a stellar show of eclecticism in personalities from the cuisine to the people and the sights and sounds of Sicilian culture. Whether trekking a languid trail to Mount Erice amidst Castellos or exploring the scenic sights of Palermo city centre with its multi-hued architecture, the tri-colour Baret Bag is a favourite for versatility and an excellent travel companion to uncover treasure troves and trinkets of Sicily’s capital city, Palermo.
