I very well know that Filipinas are silent bag hags. Bags are oftentimes that guilty pleasure we simply cannot let go. So you could just imagine how excited I was when I recently got wind of a piece of exciting news! So here you go —Good news to all Filipino fans of bags, totes and satchels! KLutched, one of Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia‘s most talked about brand, is finally here in the Philippines! Yes, yes, yes! KLutched is finally available in the Philippines!
Created by the young and very talented Ung Yiu Lin, who also owns the brands ShoesShoesShoes and Idylinn, KLutched promises gorgeous bags – from slouches to totes to miniaudieres to satchels and yes, to clutches! (KLutched…clutched…get it? Plus the “KL” can also mean Kuala Lumpur! Cool branding, huh?) – made of exotic skins and leathers. How exotic, you ask? KLutched uses glossy sting ray, metallic python, ostrich leg leather, lizard on cowhide and lamb skin. It’s all about texture!
Here’s one of KLutched’s many fans — Malaysian actress Carmen Soo (who has captured the hearts of millions of Filipinos when she first appeared on Philippine TV via the teleserye “Kahit Isang Saglit” which later on earned an International Emmy nomination)
