Are you desperately seeking a new “handle” in life but always seem to find yourself leaving the shops emptyhanded (And sometimes emptyhearted?) Cue Valextra’s newly launched bespoke service that makes finding your dream bag so much easier.

This special service is available at the brand’s Paragon flagship store, where you will be able to browse the in-store apps to help you discover your preferred style amongst all the bag designs offered. You can then have it customised by having it constructed in a specified type of leather and colour; you can customise the bag right down to its hardware.

It won’t be an easy to decision to make, though, as there’s a large array of colours available as well as a wide selection of luxurious materials ‒ from classic calfskin to exotic skins like crocodile, lizard and ostrich.

And the cherry on top of the cake? You get to further personalize your bag by embossing your initials on it, making the bag unmistakably yours.

Local socialite Kim Lim got a private consultation with Marco Scarpella, the Executive Director of Valextra, and picked a classic design in white with her initials hot stamped in gold.

The bespoke service is a reflection of the label’s proud ‘Made in Italy’ heritage, creating unique products according to the tastes and requirements of the clientele, thanks to the skillful hands of the Valextra craftsmen.

The Bespoke Service is a permanent service offered to all from mid-February 2015 onwards. The Fall Winter 2015 collection will arrive in-store in September.

The Valextra boutique is located at 01-03A Paragon, 290 Orchard Road, Tel: 6836 8315. For more information about Valextra, go to
