Structured vs Non-Structured

We all probably have certain criteria or guide to wade through the enormous variety of bag choices we have today.

  • Structured vs non-structured
  • Bold color vs pastel color
  • Spacious vs compact
  • Design vs practicality
  • Luxury vs affordability

and this list goes on…

    Structured Bag

Credits French Connection & Weekend Designer.

At Veira, we have always been drawn to the structured silhouettes and inclined to design for bags with certain shapes for some known and unknown reasons. Perhaps it is time we look at slouchy bags for creative inspirations.

Well, ever thought thoroughly – what’s your criteria?

Stationery Lover

Summer 2012: A fun insight into the minds of those that have unique fascination of stationery.

We’ve always been avid fans of colorful pencils, neat folders, neon post-it notes, vintage brown jotter book  and more. Just like how Cinderberry (of stationeryfetish.com) puts it, “The ballad of irrational love of pens, notebooks, paper diaries, inks, quills and every kind of office supplies”. It is simply an idea on little things in life that make us giddy with joy.

Look out for classic silhouettes and combination of fun and vintage colors in our new collection “Stationery Lover’s Notion“. ~Coming soon, April 2012~

Wealth Wallet/Purse

What is auspicious for the wallet/purse?

1. Love for your wallet/purse

2. Three (chinese ancient) coins tied with a red cord/ribbon for never-ending wealth luck & prevent unnecessary expenditures (apparently, this is a pretty common recommendation by Feng Shui experts)

3. Keep wallet/purse free of clutter

4. Red packet containing three Chinese ancient coins stringed together

5. USD dollar note

6. Yellow citrine

I grew up in a family filled with all sorts of superstitions (including wealth related) but I’ve hardly given much thought or be bothered about them or even have any interest in Feng Shui at all. At a recent casual chat with other designers and industry people, they shared how some believe in auspicious success directions, attaching coins to the calculator etc. After all, if that works – everyone will be wealthy and prosperous, right? Then I thought about it, people like me will never know..because I simply do not practice such tips. What’s your view on this? Perhaps it’s about time to test some luck?

Off to shop for some Chinese ancient coins! Be right back with some (wealth) hopefully ;)

This is the mama’s secret to cleaning white fabric couch and she suggested the same for canvas bags (and any other type of fabric bags)

And she emphasized…that it must be the EXTRA Strength version.

Well, I am not too sure how much can odor eliminator do to remove dirt/stain but I guess worth a try…
