Goyard-Byblos-Bag

This summer, the luxury hotel Byblos partnered with Goyard to design a limited edition handbag that’s only available this summer. This exclusive release is to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Byblos. The Goyard Byblos is a large shopping bag, crafted with the logo of Byblos in the center including the year of establishment. The top is crafted with leather handles and it’s designed with the famous Goyardine Canvas, decorated vertically on the bag.

The Goyard Byblos Bag will only be available at Le Byblos in Saint-Tropez from 28 May to 10 October 2017. Only 50 bags will be available, each one individually numbered.

You asked, I answered. Yes, many of you have been asking recently regarding Goyard’s Saigon in Singapore, and because I haven’t done a post proper on this bag before, here goes. One of the first bags Goyard ever had when they came back into the spotlight, it is also the most reminiscent of Goyard’s trunks, what with its stiff structured body, the wooden lats that run down both sides of the bag and of course, that carved polished wooden top handle.

Available generally in 2 sizes, the PM and the MM which are sized 28 cm by 20 cm and 35 cm by 25 cm respectively, there’s also a newish mini size though I don’t have much info on that at the moment. Mostly covered in Goyard’s now iconic Goyardine coated-canvas with its sides and front flap finished in smooth leather, it’s a very proper bag. Handsome, in fact, something you’ll bring to state dinners and gala soirée if it were the ones that come in full leather, as well as an assortment in exotic skins.

But for the one with the Goyardine canvas, it’s pretty versatile, one that you can have slung over your shoulder (yes, it comes with a shoulder sling too) as you strut your stuff up and down Orchard Road over the weekends. Priced at SGD6210 and SGD8080 for the PM ones in classic and special colours respectively, while the MM in classic colours is priced at SGD7280, all of which you can check out now at Goyard Ngee Ann City.

Sadly though, the Saigon Mini is not available in Singapore, but here’s an adorable image of it anyway. An exact clone of its bigger siblings, the other difference (besides the size) is the absence of the two wooden lats on the front.

Goyard Saint Louis Junior

No, your eyes aren’t playing tricks on you. This bag truly exists, which brings us to my own experience with it. Having dinner one day along Kallang River, I spotted a pair of Japanese ladies, one of whom had a bag that was exactly this, in this exact size. At first I thought it was counterfeit, but upon closer inspection (she was sitting at the next table from where I was), I decided it wasn’t so. Then I thought, could she have bought a much larger size (like a PM and GM) and then had someone cut it down (and re-sewn) for her, since customisation specialists are more and more common these days.

I was definitely confused, yet most intrigued.

Having done a little more snooping online, I’ve come to realise that the Saint Louis Junior isn’t an urban legend. Goyard did indeed make miniature versions of their iconic Saint Louis tote bags exclusively for the Japanese market. Yes, you read that right. Measuring just 28 cm by 19.5 cm, it has the same top handles as well as the additional button pouch, albeit sized down a tad smaller.

Available only in limited quantities which have since sold out (no surprise there), it was launched in only a handful of special colours, including the Pink one you see illustrated here.

It’s adorable, it’s tiny and it’s a bag that no woman cannot love. I mean, who wouldn’t want to add this little darling to their collection, right? And if anyone is eyeing it, I might have found one online for sale, so leave a comment below and I’ll email you the details ASAP.

Are You a Goyard Person?

PurseBlog Asks Goyard

Last week, Chavie Lieber of Racked interviewed me for an in-depth look at the cult of Goyard. It’s a brand unlike any other we cover; even Hermès, in all of its tradition and conservatism, still debuts seasonal collections at Paris Fashion Week, sells a portion of its product line on its website and has boutiques in all the world’s major luxury markets. Goyard, on the other hand, does none of that, but it retains an ardent following and seems to attract new, younger customers, despite no advertising, an extremely limited retail presence and as little interaction with the media as you could imagine. What gives?

When Lieber asked me why I thought Goyard continued to attract customers despite its general rejection of all commonly used methods of doing exactly that, I balked. Having never found any of Goyard’s bags particularly compelling, it’s not a question I could answer from personal experience with my own shopping urges, and it’s not one I’ve ever seen Goyard’s loyal horde of customers discuss in any detail. If you’re a loyal Goyard fan, we want to hear from you.

What first attracted you to Goyard’s products, and how did you learn about the brand? Goyard’s website proudly proclaims that it doesn’t make seasonal products, so how does the brand hold your interest? Does celebrity affection for the brand, particularly the lightweight St. Louis totes, help or hinder your love for Goyard? Do you wish that the brand provided more variety, or is the brand’s ultra-traditional approach and distaste for the spotlight part of the magic?

Hilary Duff Doubles Up with Bags from Louis Vuitton and Goyard

Hilary Duff Louis Vuitton Empreinte Speedy Goyard St. Louis Tote

Here’s Hilary Duff, leaving a fitness studio in West Hollywood, carrying a Louis Vuitton Speedy Empreinte 25 Bandoulière Bag and a Goyard St. Louis Tote. Strangely enough, we’ve seen Hilary carry both of these bags before, which is a definite first/sign of the end times. We know from extensive research that Hilary uses her many lightweight, durable Goyard totes as diaper bags and gym bags fairly frequently. Goyard doesn’t sell its bags online, but you can find Hilary’s Speedy for $2,840 at Louis Vuitton.

Hilary Duff’s handbag collection seems to expand exponentially with every passing season. If you feel the need to keep abreast of every Duff acquisition in recent history, you’ve certainly come to the right place. Though, be warned: it’s an alarming amount of handbags. Check out“The Many Bags of Hilary Duff” and “The Many Bags of Hilary Duff, Part 2.”
