Yes, Mother’s Day is almost upon us, and for everyone’s who ready, #highfive.

For everyone else, good luck and start reading this post. It’s going to be a long one, but at least I can safely say you’ll have enough options to mull over before deciding which would be the best gift for Mummy Dearest.

And because it’s going to be a long post (ok, the truth is I’m still finalising all the gift options), here’s the first one, For the Mum Who Adores Anything Cute. Which I’ll then follow up in the coming days with For The Mum Who Wants A Tiny Number (Bag), For The Mum Who Needs A Workhorse Wallet, For The Mum Who Likes Her Bling and of course, For The Mum Who Already Has Everything Else.

Without further ado, here’s today’s post. Enjoy.
For the Mum Who Adores Anything Cute
Yes, Mummy might not be young anymore, but she’s young at heart and you know, has a good sense of humour too. And because which mother doesn’t love tea or remember the days when Wrigley’s chewing gum was freely available in Singapore, the first two picks are both clutches, the first from Kate Spade New York, their new Down The Rabbit Hole English Tea Clutch (SGD570, buy online via Kate Spade) that’s mostly metallic PVC with 14K gold-plated hardware. And then there’s Anya Hindmarch’sWrigley’s Spearmint Gum clutch that’s now 60% off over at THEOUTNET. WasUSD1595, now USD638, which also makes it a good deal, no?

Yes, this is still gift ideas for the Mum who loves anything cute, and nothing can be cuter than Fendi’s bug-eyed wallet. Measuring 19 cm by 12 cm, it’s basically a wallet-on-chain with enough card slots, zip compartment, patch pockets and a long metal chain that’s actually the sling (USD1102, buy online via Net-A-Porter). Then there’s the Powerpuff Girls iPhone cases by Moschino. Yes, I know, too cute, right? Still, it’s guaranteed to bring a smile to most anyone’s face, and beside the one in Blue you see above, Moschino Paragon also has the ones in Green, in both iPhone6 and iPhone6Plussizes. And at SGD90 each, you really can’t complain.

And for something really affordable, the cutest post-its I’ve ever seen, the EUR14 a box Paperways sticky notes that you can get from Colette. If you’re really getting the cheap post-its, make sure you get a nice card too, like this one from The Paper Bunny which costs just SGD5.90.

For The Mum Who Loves Her Bling
As promised, here’s part two of the 5-part post. And no, you won’t go broke trying to please Mum either. From the small and the classic to the large and the modern, here are 5 icons from the world of fine jewellery that even the fussiest of mothers will love.

Choose from Cartier’s Juste en Clou pink gold beauty (SGD5500, view more online via Cartier) to these lovely new Infinity rings from Tiffany & Co. in 18K rose or yellow gold (SGD3600 each), all of which come with a nice tiny sprinkling of brilliant diamonds for that added bling. Then there’s the Perlée rings from Van Cleef & Arpels (another favourite of mine, by the way) that are true classics in their own right, which can be worn singly or stacked, and depending on your budget, you could easier get her one or a pair (SGD1850 each).

For mums who prefer chunkier pieces with a little more heft, there’s Bulgari’s newB.zero1 ‘Perfect Mistake’ 3-gold ring, a stunner that retails for SGD4010. Last, but by no means least, for the mother who loves everything Chanel, how about the new Coco Crush rings that come in Beige Gold? Available in 2 different widths, these start fromSGD3080 apiece, with its signature look being all about the quilting you see on the rings.

FENDI WILL SOON SELL BAG STRAPS FOR AROUND $1,000

Categories:Other Brands

Fendi-sell-bag-straps-1
Luxury brands have been selling us frivolous knick-knacks for a while now at exorbitant prices (we’re looking at you Hermès) but Fendi’s latest might just take the cake. Reportedly the brand will launch a collection of individually sold bag straps in November with each one priced at a whopping $1,000. For the sake of comparison, you should probably note that Gucci’s Interlocking Shoulder bag is priced at about $2,100 and that is a strap with an actual bag attached.


Fendi-sell-bag-straps-2
Titled Strap You, the collection will feature nine different strap styles ranging from classic leather to exotic skins and studded variants. The straps will be two toned and customers can choose whether they prefer gold or silver hardware. You can have the strap monogrammed too.

As ludicrous as the prospect is to some of us, we’re sure that there are few Fendi fans out there who are anxiously anticipating this new accessory collection (isn’t buying a designer strap for yourhandbag a bit like accessorizing your accessories?). For us, this begs the question: Have we been paying $1,000 for handbag straps all this time? Next time can we get a discount if we forego the shoulder strap?
