It’s no secret that us in Singapore love a tote bag. One brand that seems to be on everyone’s arm now is the Gentlewoman tote.
Peep the viral Instagram account @Gentlewomanbaginsg, and you’ll see numerous sightings (complete with amusing, snarky captions) of women carrying the now ubiquitous shopper tote in all its various shapes and sizes.
It’s not hard to see why the Gentlewoman tote bag has taken the Singapore fashion scene by storm. Its sleek and minimalist design, combined with super affordable price point that start from US$12 (S$16), make it a perfect blend of style and functionality. Chic, lightweight, roomy and affordable. What more could you ask for?
If you’re after one of these bags, it’s available to buy online on the Gentlewoman website, but be aware shipping is an eyewatering US$22 (S$29). There are plenty of options available on Shopee, but it’s hard to tell which are the authentic bags. Also, as with every trend that reaches its peak, the bag could well be on its way to being overexposed.
