The arc of fashion trends these days is leaning heavily towards a ‘90s redux. It’s a fun decade that’s defined by a whole range of styles and aesthetics cross pollinating. Think goth meets grunge, glamour meets athleisure, and minimalist meets romantic. One accessory that really ties it all together, though, is the handy pochette style of bags.
This season, the French brand Maje has its very own take on the style in the form of the Stick bag which is available at the brand’s boutiques in Ion Orchard, Raffles City Singapore and The Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands. It comes in a sleek gently curved rectangle silhouette and an embossed croco leather pattern on the body for some textural kick.
The Stick bags comes in a version with fringes (middle) too.
If you’re into some rock ‘n’ roll flair, check out the versions with fringed sides that are available exclusively at the Maje boutique at Raffles City Singapore. In addition to fail-safe colours like black and white, the Stick also comes in trendy pastel pink.
The Stick also succeeds on a practical front. It’s got plenty of space on the inside to fit your going-out essentials: phone, keys, wallet, lipstick, hand sanitiser, and perhaps an extra mask. Hot tip: pair the Stick with a matching card case (sold separately), which can easily double as a slim and compact wallet.
You can pair the Stick with a matching card case on a chain (sold separately) that doubles up as a wallet.
The versatility of this bag, however, is what really makes it an essential accessory. Because of its size and straightforwardly fashionable design, it pairs effortlessly with and brings together virtually any outfit you wear it with. Now that’s what you call a perfect bag.
