Stella McCartney for LeSportsac

I’d known about the upcoming Stella McCartney for LeSportsac collection for a while. I was reminded of it again a couple of weeks ago when a sales assistant spoke about it, saying that the Tokidoki for LeSportsac is discontinued and will be replaced with Stella McCartney and that prices will be very high.

When I was down in Singapore over the weekend, I happened to chance upon the Stella McCartney collection and snuck a picture.

lesportsac Stella McCartney for LeSportsac

The bags don’t feel like regular LeSportsac bags. The nylon is softer and there’s almost a satiny quilted feel to it which is nice. The collection seems to place emphasis on travel with a collection of travel bags and camera bags which also double up as handbags. The bag designs are unique and do not come in the regular LeSportsac line. Pity, because I’d have liked to see some of the regular bags come in the Stella McCartney print.

The Stella McCartney prints veer towards the pastel with one exception of the pop print, which is bright with splashes of orange and bright blue. It is the print in the picture above. Otherwise the others are rather muted. The bunny backpack is in the Posh Print.

I saw in my most recent Isetan mailer that the travel bag in the picture above is priced at RM1,800. Are you shocked? I am! Then again, its expensive for LeSportsac but cheap for a Stella McCartney so I guess its a toss up.

The Stella McCartney for LeSportsac collection is available at all LeSportsac boutiques and counters.

I have yet to see the Stella McCartney collection, but from the picture, it just doesn’t appeal to me. I was nuts over the Tokidoki collection, and I’m always kicking myself for not getting any of it before. Goodness me, RM1800 for that?!

Tine: Tokidoki is still available here and at discounts too!

S-Kay: Yep they look prettier online than in real life though it does feel nice – like a pillow LOL…

Nikki: Yes Stella McCartney is riding on her name but I associate LeSportsac with bright colours so this was a bit of a disappointment.

Stella McCarney did a collection on adidas…

Her designs were like… Hit and Miss. Some were good but the others were.. Ehhhhh…..

But it’s really expensive…

Plus the sports bags were brightly colored… Brightly colored sports bags are bound to get dirty and dull when you really use it for sports.

Imagine placing your expensive bag on the ground of the running track… Or shoving it into some pay-for-use locker… My heart will ache somehow. Haha!

Jojoba: Hehe… my mom just got herself a sling bag to travel with! But it was of a more sedate design.

Andie: You are right about the mummy mummy. Maybe that was the intention?

Ms. Blacklace: IMO designer gym gear are for the rich to throw around and for the rest of the masses to carry for NON-gym activities. As you said, you can’t put a designer gym bag into some horrid locker!

crazychick: Maybe LeSportsac will!
