COS wool jumpsuit, Zara leather jacket, Nike AirMax 90s Infrareds and Costume National Parigi bag
My new Costume National Parigi bag is so big and so perfect. I think Costume National is one of those quiet, understated and underrated brands. Back in NY, a few of our perfect everyday bags were from Costume National and I always turned to them for the perfect black mid-size bag (some super old outfits here, here and here). Fast forward a few years, getting caught up with Miu Miu, CÃ©line and Alexander Wang had me forgetting CN UNTIL I spotted the gorgeous Parigi bag. It’s a large structured bag that has 3 main compartments, one with a large zipper fastening which is perfect to stash important things that you don’t want any Chinese sticky fingers reaching for. I am lucky to have the limited edition Asia exclusive Parigi, with just 90 pieces in the whole of Asia. The special pretty pony hair bag was inspired by Hong Kong, borrowing the color scheme of red and white from our HK flag. A piece of HK with me in Shanghai â™¥
With Costume National having opened two new stores in Hong Kong, now you can get your own Parigi and join me as well as some famous people you might’ve heard of like Anna Dello Russo, Cate Blanchett and Kate Lanphear who have all been lucky enough to receive an exclusive one-off Parigi bag specially designed for them by CN designer Ennio Capasa. My Parigi was perfect for a easy weekend out with Jason around XinTianDi in Shanghai and ending the night with a successful hot pot session at Hot Pot King. The big but manageable size of the bag is also PERFECT for traveling, which is what I’ve been having to do a lot lately (see here). It’s the perfect plane bag for carrying your essentials like passports and chargers but also roomy enough to shove some oreos and yakults in there too :)
