It’s been a while since we’ve seen the Balenciaga Le Dix Bag. This collection was created by Alexander Wang and it was the first-time that the house expanded their bag line beyond the popular motorcycle-inspired handbags. The Le Dix’s were made to be ladylike but chic and minimal. And for this new season, Balenciaga updated their Le Dix Bags with a softer side.

Montblanc’s Patron of Art Edition is a fitting tribute to Scipione Borghese

Other Brands


Every year as part of its endeavor to recognize and promote the contribution of selected art patrons in the world, Montblanc presents them with the prestigious De la Culture Arts Patronage Award. Along with it, a unique Limited Edition writing instrument inspired by the great custodians of yesteryears is also commissioned to them in their honor. This year the iconic pen manufacturer pays tribute to one of the greatest Roman collectors of Art from the 17th century- Scipione Borghese.


The 2017 Patron of Art edition draws inspiration from the legend’s great love for baroque art and his original legacy that lives on even today. Most of Scpione’s collections are displayed at the Villa Borghese in Rome as of today, which in itself is a divine monument of Roman heritage and art. Mesmerizing embossments on the cap and cone of the Patron of Art special edition 4810 fountain pen take inspiration from a Borghese Vase, wherein the top shape of the cap crowned with Montlblanc’s signature black and white and a precious resin is reminiscent of the cardinal’s hat, with the cone being motivated by the ancient coins featuring the cardinal’s face. Further, the Au 750 solid gold ruthenium-coated nib of the pen is enriched with an engraving of the Borghese family coat of arms.

On equivalent lines, the Scipione Borghese Limited Edition 888 recalls the artistry of the lavish Borghese Gallery, whereas the Borghese Limited Edition 89 plays a fitting example of the work that could be seen on a cabinet of curiosities. It’s Au 750 gold barrel is inlaid with lapis lazuli, mammoth ivory, paua shell and fossilized dinosaur bone, much like its muse. Lastly, the Borghese Limited Edition 3 comes with features such as an amber inlay, a skeletonized barrel, an intense red garnet at the base of the cone and a diamond encrusted cap top with a branch like clip, all reminiscent of the precious Baroque culture.

To compliment this elaborate collection, Montblanc has also created two unique pairs of limited edition cufflinks – one displaying a red gold and amber design with an onyx pearl and the other showcasing ancient silver coins framed in a red gold frame. For those fancying a purchase, the Montblanc Patron of Art Edition – Homage to Scipione Borghese is available in Montblanc boutiques worldwide

THE ULTIMATE CHANEL CLASSIC SHOPPING TOTE REVIEW

Other Brands

Chanel-Classic-Shopping-Tote

First introduced during the Spring Summer 2016 Collection, the Chanel Classic Shopping Tote is a new addition to the house’s classic line. The design resembles a lot like the Classic Flap Bag, but in a tote bag version. And it also reminds us of the discontinued Grand Shopping Tote.

Chanel Grand Shopping Tote (GST)

Chanel Classic Shopping Tote vs Chanel Grand shopping Tote

The Grand Shopping Tote is also known as the GST and it was discontinued in 2015. This bag was extremely popular due to its practical design and the reasonable price tag. When you need a shoulder bag, you went for the Classic Flap Bag. But when you wanted a tote bag, then it was naturally to buy the Chanel Grand Shopping Tote.

The Chanel GST came in two sizes; the large size was called the Chanel GST XL. This bag was crafted in soft diamond quilting and features a printed-version of the CC logo on the center of the bag. This logo created a sense of vintage while the woven chain strap balanced it with a modern touch.

The interior was large enough to store all your daily essentials and more. With woven chain strap, the bag could be carried on the shoulder, on the crook of the arm or just by hand. It was a very handy handbag. Besides being practical, the design doesn’t scream CHANEL at all, which makes it perfect to use as an everyday bag.

The Design

The design on the Chanel Classic Shopping Tote looks a lot like the iconic Classic Flap Bag. Just take a closer look at the features – the diamond quilting, the interlocking CC logo, the woven chain strap and it even comes with a back pocket. All of these components resemble to the Classic Flap Bag, which are inspired by Coco Chanel’s original 2.55 Bag.

The GST is made with double eyelets, linked to the woven chain strap. But the Chanel Classic Shopping Tote is made with just one eyelet on each side. In our opinion, the new design is more intriguing and heart-melting. And also, the printed CC logo is swapped with the interlocking CC, which changes the whole appearance from vintage to modern.

The Interior

The interior is secured with a quilted leather strap. The inside is crafted with one large compartment, featuring an extra zip pocket and few small open pockets for structuring your items. The size of the interior makes it an ideal shopping bag for the weekend or just for work. It’s an excellent substitute of the discontinued GST design and it can be considered as a collectable item.
