Anatomy of Le Sac 11 by Gior­gio Ar­mani

Supremely prac­ti­cal and el­e­gant, Le Sac 11 per­fectly cap­tures Mr Ar­mani’s love for Paris and the magic num­ber.

ORI­GIN

Le Sac 11 cel­e­brates Ar­mani’s 40th an­niver­sary and serendip­ity: the dou­ble digit is the date of his birth­day and the num­ber of the brand’s his­tor­i­cal head­quar­ters in Mi­lan. Talk about a happy co­in­ci­dence.

STYLE

While the camel calf­skin is clas­sic un­der­stated Ar­mani styling, this sea­son sees the ad­di­tion of beige, blue and red op­tions in deer­skin and pony hair for a touch of ad­ven­ture. The time­less boxy sil­hou­ette makes for a great roomy work bag and a dressy-enough evening op­tion.

TECH­NIQUE

Sub­tle fin­ishes round up Le Sac 11’s el­e­gance. Its hard­ware is muted and hap­pily scant, let­ting the leather shine and take cen­tre stage. The sym­me­try and bal­ance of the bag re­calls that of the num­ber 11, most no­tably on the softly tex­tured top han­dles.

DID YOU KNOW?

The bag is a spe­cial an­niver­sary project by Gior­gio Ar­mani and will be sold ex­clu­sively at only 15 bou­tiques world­wide. Ar­mani/ma­rina Bay is for­tu­nate enough to be the only store in South-east Asia stock­ing Le Sac 11, with only one piece in each colour and size avail­able.

LOVE

Mr Ar­mani chose not to plaster his name on the bag, opt­ing for a dis­crete la­bel on the in­side. The bag – an as­suredly time­less clas­sic – can speak for it­self, and we have a sneak­ing sense that it’s al­ready made its way into your closet.
