You may or may not have heard of Leghila, an Italian brand that manufactures washable (yes, you read that right!) - just toss them into the washbag that they come with, and throw that into your washing machine - bags that are made of neoprene (wetsuit material). They're fairly new in the market, and some have commented that the brand is a little pricey for neoprene, but personally, I think it's quite alright because their designs and colour combinations are fab! And if you think about it, Vuitton had a range of neoprene bags some years back, and the price point for those babies were RM 6000+ so, Leghila is certainly much more fairly priced in comparison.
Here are 2 of my favourite styles by Leghila:
First up the G Bag 782. It's definitely true that this bag looks very similar to the Birkin, but I just love the studs on them! Haha, yes here I go yet again with my studded bags or just simply studs in general, but this Turquoise colour is just divine! If you're not a fan of this colour, it's available in 60 different colour combinations in total so you can take your pick! However, since this style isn't available in KL, I do have to say that I don't know how the studs are secured onto the bag, and therefore cannot guarantee whether it will come off when you actually dunk it into your washing machine.
|Available in Large size, for 450 Euros|
The other style that I like takes the shape of a Boston Bag. Called the G Bag (not to be confused with Tod's!) I found these 2 colour combinations the most interesting out of the myriad colours available.
|Available for 195 Euros each|
To view the other styles (there are many others!) and colours head on over to Leghila to check it out! And I have good news for you lot! Select styles are available at the M Store at The Gardens Mall. I have a personal favourite (which isn't featured on the website which is why I didn't include a photo!) at the M store, which basically looks like a flat square tote, but woven ala Bottega Veneta. Priced at RM 1250, I love the purple one and the turquoise + lime bicolour version! If you prefer the G Bag and the B Bag (without the studs), then it's available via Singapore-based e-tailer, Doorstep Luxury !
