The season of gift-giving is just around the corner. What better way to celebrate it than picking out something truly special, not only for your loved ones, but also for yourself? With all the hard work you put in throughout the year, and the obstacles that you overcame, you certainly deserve to give and receive something that will remind you of all the job well done this 2015! Even better than that, you can look fab and grand while at it, too.

Here we have three fashionable brands that will surely get you the most wonderful Christmas in a bag!

SAMSONITE – There’s no reason for you to miss out on the Yuletide offerings of this well-loved brand as they are bringing in not one but two brand new House of Samsonite multi-brand concept stores!

For our readers in Singapore, one is in Jurong Point, and will be open in time for the mad holiday rush in December 2015. For those who simply cannot wait to get their hands on their favorite Samsonite brands, such as Samsonite, Samsonite Black Label, Samsonite RED, Lipault, American Tourister, however, you can go on ahead to Suntec City instead. Each branch of the concept store also has an exclusive offering of brands: Hartmann for Suntec City, and High Sierra for Jurong Point.

As varied and plenty as those choices are already, though, there is so much more! As you know, Samsonite has always been committed to inspiring and showcasing creativity from acclaimed artists and design houses. In line with this objective, they are proud to announce their fun and colourful new collaboration with the house of world-renowned artist Keith Haring.

Stand out with style as you bring with you the traveler favorite of Inova spinner all livened up in Keith Haring’s signature graffiti print, both inside and out. Get it in either 55cm or 69cm sizes—regardless what you choose, it will surely bring you not only attention, but also convenient travel, thanks to the luggage’s ergonomic 360-degree easy-pivot mobility wheels, flat handles, and the lightest high-tech Makronlon® polycarbonate material for high impact resistance.


With the Keith Haring by Samsonite collection, you can be sure that your trip is going to be every bit of fun.

LONGCHAMP – If you’re instead looking for something that you can bring to your every day travels in the city instead, you can choose from a vast selection of new Longchamp bags, both for men and women.

With their timeless and classic pieces that Longchamp is well-known and loved for, and the more updated and modern designs, there’s something sure to fit your style and personality.


For the ladies, the Longchamp Le Pliage collection remains to be one of the hot ticket items. From sling bags to purses, and even updated backpacks, you can step out of your house confident in yourself and your sense of fashion.


Of course, there’s something for the men, too. We all know how much men love their leather, and Longchamp certainly doesn’t come up short in that department. Tote bags, messenger bags, backpacks, and even iPad cases all can easily be the perfect Christmas gift for him.

VALEXTRA – For the classy and fashionable him, Valextra’s Fall Winter 2015 collection is sure to add a dash of dapper to his ensemble. Iconic bag icons of the brand have been re-imagined to incorporate modern designs, perfect for the modern needs.


The ever-popular “Pilot bag” continues to be a must-have choice item. Formally known as the Avietta, no other hand luggage can ever come close to its stylish functionality. It is designed to hold clothes for as much as two days’ worth, and slim enough to fit the overhead compartment. Its double zips also allow easy access into the bag, as well as two large external compartments to complement the several other smaller ones inside.

Valextra also introduces the brand new Triennale Briefcase, presenting a visual wonder with its asymmetries on the frontal flap. You can choose from two variants: one with a single compartment, and the other with a double gusset.

Valextra Travel Wallet

Meanwhile, there’s also the All in one Travel Wallet that can house not just bills but also credit cards, bank notes, and even personal documents and passports. This is one wallet you would not want to lose, whether it is empty or not.

Don’t dilly-dally! Catch these fabulous Christmas bag finds and have yourself a very merry Christmas, indeed!
