    4th Sep 2015 | Gnome & Bow's 2nd collection of bags stands testament to brand's vision of telling stories through clever details

    4th September 2015 – Founded on the notion that bags can go beyond functionality to tell timeless tales, Gnome & Bow further fosters this notion with the launch of their second collection of bags titled Jekyll’s Hyde, an extension of their wallet series of the same title that was released last Christmas.

    Jekyll’s Hyde explores and reinterprets the ideas of duality, change and acceptance, a modernisation of the Robert Louis Stevenson masterpiece. The range of bags and wallets were designed to showcase the two contending faces of human nature: the rational, reserved side versus the wilder, more spontaneous inner-self. The question is “Which side will prevail?"

    The duality of man is expounded by each bag’s reversibility. One side features a classic Midnight Blue or Forest Green nylon, which speaks of a distinguished Dr. Jekyll. When flipped, the bags reveal a custom printed cotton canvas in Khaki Maverick or Olive Maverick, each motif testament to the unconventional ways of Mr. Hyde. Both characters rival for control via a message that is inscribed on the inner leather base of the bag, a constant hint at the fine line that one might thread between the two contradicting personalities.

    The Jekyll’s Hyde bag collection includes:

    The bags are crafted in a combination of U.S. full grain leather, nylon and cotton canvas. Each bag comes in 2 variants - Midnight Blue or Forest Green.

    Prices range from SGD 245 for the Milton Crossbody Clutch to SGD 395 for the Clifford Backpack.
