Go for it =)

before i settled for BV, i was looking at several brands. Prada, Burberry, LV, Gucci, Bally, AD. and I even went to the extend to do in-depth research about each brand, the feedback by users and the durability of their wallets.

Plus, BV design is not as loud as other brands like LV or Gucci, whereby the logos are imprinted all over the wallet (except for certain models...) only people who sees it, knows it. General public won't give it a 2nd or 3rd or 4th look. tested and proven when I went to countries like Thailand, Vietnam and Indonesia.



BV has a few shades of red. tbh, its best to head down to a BV boutique and personally see the colours by your own eyes. I totally do not trust the colour contrast in the BV website.

Here are some of the designs in red:







-----------------------------------------------------------------------

tbh, MCM is only big in Asia Pacific countries like HK and China. In europe, Australia and US, they are not that popular.

The only reason why we see so many asians sporting MCM bags is K-POP. don't forget that MCM is a Korean company, i am sure they must have spent millions and millions of dollars on getting those K-pop celebrities and K-dramas to endorse their products.
i see, no wonder so many tiongs sweeping that brand. u're right bro, the website colors for BV and the real color really lot of difference. shld head down to have a look/feel. i feel the best place to shop and look/see for branded is at dfs scotts, better service than AD.

seriously... I DON'T understand what's so great about MCM. although they have been around for nearly 40 years (37 yrs exact) but they do not have a signature design, which people can easily relate to.

like LV is to speedy, neverfull, Alma, Noe. Prada is to Saffiano. Chanel is to lambskin flip handbag. Hermes is to Birkin and Kelly.

-----------------------------------

DFS orchard is a good place for BV wallets. I can't say much about other brands though...

added info if you like good service with branded boutiques

Prada:
Recommend Prada @ Paragon. So far best service. Next is Prada @ MBS.
Blacklist: Prada @ ION. The filipino SA there are so suck up. one of them even kena one-time good one by me

LV:
Recommend: Taka
Blacklist: LV boutique at MBS when there wasn't much people a few months back around July. wanted to buy a LV wallet for my dad, because he lost his.
The SA who served me although was a local Singaporean, but he didn't really wanna strike a conversation with me, and gave me that "suck up" feeling. in the end, walked out and bought the LV wallet from Taka instead.

Burberry:
Paragon & MBS
- I had a great time in Burberry Paragon when I was there to buy a bag for my mum's birthday this year. The female SA was very friendly and more importantly, she was paying alot of attention to details, like my mum's skin colour, what clothing she usually wear, her height etc.
- MBS was when I wanted to buy a Burberry polo t-shirt for my younger sister because she just got promoted. great service too =)

Mont Blanc:
Taka

Gucci:
Paragon & MBS

Ferragamo:
MBS
