One Language totes, now at

The story:
“Another canvas bag?” ……….Yes and no.
One Language was created by two sisters based in New York City.
Their goal: to create canvas bags that are chic and modern, sophisticated enough to wear as just a great bag.

The sisters, one a Cornell University graduate (the business orient) and the other a Parsons School of Design graduate (the design junkie), have both worked for some of fashion’s biggest names (Hermés, Oscar de la Renta, Lanvin….and that’s just to name a few), and couldn’t understand why most canvas bags were either given out for free or not taken seriously?

And so, with classic / simple designs, they designed a fresh line of canvas bags that combine everyday function with effortless style.
Each One Language bag is made of natural cotton canvas and lined with handwritten inspirational quotes that come straight from the designers’ sketchbooks.

One Language is a personal and a direct reflection of the girls’ carefree attitude and modern spirit, mixed with serious style.

Awww! I missed it as I was in Hong Kong for work.
See how Swatch Zebra Day was celebrated in Covent Garden

SWATCH ZEBRA Day 1st April 2011

In Jakarta

and Singapore
Zebra Dancing Swatch

In the Philippines, the event was held at the Power Plant Mall and I heard, a huge success.
To think this was all planned rush-rush by Tita Virgie Ramos with a huge assist from Rowell Santiago and of course, Chel Peña.
Hats off to you!
(Heard some smaller kids were scared of the human zebras and had to hide inside the shops, but judging from this video, it looked like a lot of fun.)
Congrats Tita Virgie!

I know right. I need a bigger house. I need a bag room and a bag nanny like my mom has.
Last night I was checking out these fluorescent satchels at Dover Street Market’s E-shop, and they’re all sold out, except for the green.

You can even have them monogrammed = trouble!
