Travel and fashion should be best friends. Who wants to wear track pants and carry a boring black carry bag on a flight, when you can be strutting down in Louboutins and tuck a colourful travel bag under your arm.
Australia’s favourite, Camilla Franks has saved the cabin baggage fashion disasters by designing a weekender bag, inspired by her beloved second home, Singapore.
With the motive to inspire Australians to shop the Great Singapore Sale (27 May to 24 July 2011), Camilla combines unique fusion prints in every rainbow colour, to give every girl her perfect travel companion.
It is big enough to pack for a five-day getaway and fly away to a land where there must be a shopping God. It comes with beautiful leather trimmings, a silk scarf and a removable envelope pouch for valuables.
“(This bag) is a representation of some of my favourite elements of Singapore and I hope it inspires Australians to stay-over in this fabulous city and scratch more than the surface,” says Camilla
“My top tip would be, travel over for the Great Singapore Sale and spend at least 96 hours. The sale is the perfect time to access the renowned premium shopping scene at a fraction of the price, and you don\’t just want to stopover as there are so many fabulous things in this city to explore.”
To be honest, I struggle to see how this would fit everything a shopping girl needs to take with her for FIVE days of shopping in Singapore and bring home her shopping bargains.
This limited-edition â€˜Singapore Weekender Bag\’ will be sold in Camilla stores from early May for RRP $550, or you can pre-book a piece on (02) 9140 1430.
