Are you a fan of durable Italy-made leather bags that won’t go out of style?
So are celebrities like Lady Gaga, Priyanka Chopra, Emma Roberts and Jessica Alba, who have all been spotted with a bag of Senreve. The San Francisco brand has become a favorite with Hollywood celebrities and fashion insiders over the past two years with its line of functional luxury bags, which have finally arrived in Singapore.
Senreve launched its first pop-up store here at Takashimaya Mall, offering the full collection of its best-selling handbags. In the chic pastel-hued space, you’ll find everything from the sleek Voya tote that was seen on Angelina Jolie to the Mini Maestra all-in-one that many have compared to the Celine belt bag.
You will also get to see the high quality craftsmanship of Senreve bags up close. Each is handmade in Tuscany by artisans who have worked with luxury brands for over 50 years. Bags are made from water resistant, stain resistant Italian calfskin and scratch resistant. Inside, they are lined with micro-suede, just as resistant.
And because they’re designed for working women, Senreve bags are incredibly practical. You will find several pockets and zipped compartments inside and outside. They’re also perfectly sized to fit your favorite devices. The Aria Belt Bag and Alunna Bag, both of which had waiting lists with thousands of buyers before their launch, can carry your iPhone XS Max and Kindle respectively. The Maestra bag, on the other hand, is large enough to hold your 15-inch MacBook.
But the best thing about Senreve bags by far is their versatility – there are many styles that can be worn as a backpack, crossbody, crossbody bag, or clutch. Some models even come with removable leather straps that can be easily replaced with a metal chain, instantly transforming the accessory into a suitable accessory for a night out.
The only problem you will have is deciding which bag to buy. The Takashimaya pop-up has all the Senreve bags in their rainbow color wheel. Beyond classics like black, white, navy and brown, there are also limited edition shades introduced for the season, like light pink and sky blue. And, to mark Senreve’s launch in Singapore, the new Alunna and Mini Alunna bags come in Pebbled Cream, a style only available in Asia.
Colors aside, there are four different types of leather finishes to choose from, such as pebble, smooth, and dragon, which is Senreve’s answer to crocodile skin. Eco-conscious shoppers can even look to the brand’s vegan leather collections, which are made without any animal by-products.
What if you don’t see the bag you want because it’s (predictably) sold out? You can pre-order it at the store itself and expect it to be delivered to you within a week.
Of course, all good things come to an end, and in the case of the Senreve pop-up, it won’t be in town until November 10, 2021. After that, you’ll have to hang your favorite bags online, complete with thousands of items. ‘other buyers around the world. Unless you want to be on the waiting list, we recommend that you get to Takashimaya as soon as possible.
Senreve is located at No B1-41, Takashimaya Shopping Center, Ngee Ann City, 391 Orchard Road, Singapore 238872.
