Maison Héroïne Marlene Briefcase – Office Styling Tips

In the article ‘What Would You Do For Yourself’ I did not just share the leather handbag brand ‘Maison Héroïne’ but also introduced a shoulder bag ‘Tilda’ from this brand to you. For me, carrying a small crossbody bag means enjoying a casual movement without any stress. However, I always need a bag that is big enough to put everything in it, including my camera, lenses and my iPhone.

Therefore, I choose another handbag ‘Marlene Briefcase (in tablet size) from Maison Héroïne. I seldom carry a briefcase but a large handbag. However, the handles of my handbags get broken very quickly since my bags are always overloaded. On the other hand, it is also not easy to find any briefcases or bags in nice design in the market. Didn’t designers think about beautiful appearance and practicality, these two features at the same time when they design bags?

Maison Héroïne offers different sizes in each bag model. For example, Marlene Briefcase has four sizes. The design team makes sure that the bags are not worn out so easily when carrying our important items.

Are you an office lady or a freelancer as I am who need a well-designed handbag for our work and in daily life? In this article, I will not only show you this beautiful Marlene bag and the styling I created for photo shooting, but also some styling tips that might help you to look chic in your office look.

在前一篇What Would You Do For Yourself的文章裡,除了與你分享成立於德國柏林的包款品牌Maison Héroïne與品牌的設計理念外,也介紹Tilda這款小包。出門時背上小包對我來說意味著輕鬆、沒有工作壓力,完全進入「充分做自己」並且享受當下的時光。不過以現在的工作與生活模式來說,我也需要一個看起來有型、可以和衣櫃裡不同風格衣著搭配,同時在容量上放進工作上需要的相關物件的萬用包。

因此在Tilda小包之外,我另外挑了Marlene Briefcase平板電腦的尺寸來應付工作日的需求。我很少使用公事包,大多以一般大包款來應付;不過一直有個問題,那就是在包包把手負荷過重而磨損(因為一般的包包根本不是拿來練舉重的呀)。而且,一般公事包的設計實在很難讓人喜愛。我常常想,難道那些公事包設計師都沒有時尚的概念嗎,不然怎麼無法設計出讓上班族女性可以輕鬆駕馭的好包呢?

Marlene Briefcase有四款不同尺寸供我們選擇,依照十五吋、十三吋筆記型電腦,平板、迷你平板的大小讓上班族女性可以針對自己的需求挑選。同時針對包包把手五金細部特別加強,好握好背,也不容易壞。你是個上班族或是和我一樣是個自由工作者,需要一個別緻卻又符合品味的好包包來應付生活與工作場合上的不同需求?這篇文章不只介紹Marlene Briefcase的特性讓你了解,也與你分享不同體型的女子該如何挑選公事包款。另外,對上班族在造型打理上的需求也做出穿搭造型建議,不要錯過了這次精彩的議題內文。

As follows, I share with you some tips on how to choose a proper bag that fits your body shape.

  •  For plump girls : You need a bag that has an elegant shape such as the Marlene Briefcase in laptop size of 13″. The trapezoid shape gives a unique touch to the design. Moreover, the size of the bag gives a better proportion of your body. The bag in black or grey is ideal for ladies who have strict office outfit rules, whereas the bag in pink or gold is perfect for everybody’s daily uses.
  • For tall and strong girls : You need a bag that has a simple design such as the Alec Business Shopping. The minimal style of the bag will give you a better balance of the body. I especially like the bag in grey color, which is perfect for daily outfit.
  • For standard size girls : You can freely choose handbags from any shape or design, including the one I carried for photo shooting, the Marlene Briefcase in mini tablet size. This briefcase is 30cm width, which is only slightly narrower than the hips. It is suitable for women of general size.

接下來和你們分享如何挑選一只適合自己身形的包包;即使不是這個品牌的包款,也可以依照段落裡的建議挑選。

  • 豐滿體型:體型較為豐滿的女子們很適合強調線條感設計的包,比如說Marlene Briefcase十三吋筆電尺寸)。以梯形為主要線條設計的大包款式在視覺上很俐落,減輕大包包設計的壓迫感;也因為比例的關係,可以塑造出身型比包包窄小的錯覺感。黑色、灰色兩款很適合衣著打扮要求比較嚴格的公司,粉色、金色兩款包則適合在工作場合中沒那麼多穿著限制的女子。
  • 大骨架體型:身形較寬、骨架大的女子非常適合Alec Business Shopping這款包包;長型直筒的設計簡約俐落,可以柔化身形上的比例。個頭高的女子請將手提袋把手放長,小個子女生則調短手把長度,從視覺上來達到修飾的作用。
  • 一般至嬌小體型:這樣身形的女子很適合這篇穿搭照片中所搭配的包,Marlene Briefcase平板大小的尺寸,其中又以粉色、灰色、棕色以及新推出的金色更加適合。三十公分的寬度只比臀圍再窄一些,不會有視覺上的壓迫感,正好適合一般體型的女子。

How to choose a proper bag that fits your style

  • Alec Business Shopper : It is a bag that suits girls who like minimalist design. The neat shape and the matte leather give a unique touch to the bag. It is an ideal business handbag since you can easily put A4 size folders or even a laptop into it. You can also carry it as a daily handbag. Try to style the bag with your hoodie, jeans and a pair of sneakers. Your casual outfit will become stylish with this handbag.
  • Marlene Briefcase : Marlene is a bag for girls who are either elegant or outgoing. I chose the black color for photo shooting, but I also like the mini size in pink. Its matte leather surface makes it unique from other bags.
  • Tilda Crossbody Bag : Because of my job, I haven’t used small bags for a long time. Later I learned that I should sometimes relax from work and should not overload myself with a large handbag. I realized how handy this bag is. Tilda has two different sizes. You can put a cosmetic bag, a smartphone, and even a small digital camera into this bag. It is a bag for girls who are looking for a small yet handy bag.

以不同風格挑選合適包款

  • Alec Business Shopper:這款包很適合簡約俐落的女子。長筒型設計加上霧面皮革,以及在細部搭配上不同色系皮革,的確令人愛不釋手。這款包不只當作公事包很適合,可以把A4大小的公文件全部放進去,連筆記電腦都可以輕鬆攜帶。就算不當成工作包,配上休閒衣著、牛仔褲、球鞋也很適合。
  • Marlene Briefcase:優雅大方或是外向活潑的女子很適合拿Marlene這款包,以顏色、包款大小來挑選就可以搭配上不同個性與衣著風格的女子。在拍攝這套專輯時,特別挑選了耐看的黑色包來當成發揮的主角;Marlene的設計很細緻,試背之後就令人心喜。粉色系迷你平板大小的尺寸很適合一般上班族女子,手機、隨身相機、化妝包以及錢包都可以放進去;霧面皮革的設計也容易保養,不擔心弄髒。
  • Tilda Crossbody Bag:因為自己的工作與生活型態,有很長一段時間不曾使用小包包,後來才知道是自己背載了過多的工作負荷。一但認知到這個事實,才發現身旁好多女生朋友都是以一只小包縱橫天下。Tilda有兩款尺寸可以挑選,女生常備的化妝包、隨身相機都可以輕鬆帶著走。如果你也是出門絕對講求的女子,那麼Tilda最適合你了。

Office Styling Tips

  • How to look stylish in your uniform : Make sure that your uniform fits your body shape appropriately. If it doesn’t, ask your tailor to make it right. Plump girls should pay attention to some details such as shirt buttons, shoulder line or whether the zippers are too tight. Also, make sure you have enough garments for changing and washing. Smelly or wrinkled clothes give people an unprofessional feeling.
  • How to choose a uniform that fits your body shape : Plump girls should avoid wearing button down shirts. Instead, a simple one-piece top with a V-neck is more suitable. Girls in pear-shaped figure should choose a straight cut skirt or trousers and do not forget to show the skinniest part of your legs such as ankles. Also, a straight cut blazer will fit girls in pear-shaped body type perfectly, but it must be long enough to cover at least half of the hips.
  • Accessories : Good quality accessories are better than fancy ones. If you are not sure which style suits you, accessories in simple style is always a good choice.
  • Hair Style : I know it is not possible to keep a perfect hairstyle every day but try to make sure your hair looks as fine as possible, such as avoiding scalp and get a haircut regularly.

辦公室穿搭技巧總整理

  • 如何讓制服穿搭俐落有型:穿制服上班的女子們,請注意制服的合身度(尤其是肩線),必要時請裁縫師把腰圍、袖長、褲長、裙長等改到合適的尺寸。有些女子身形比較豐滿,也要留意襯衫鈕扣、外套肩膀以及褲子裙子拉鍊處是否過於緊繃;不合身的衣服往往給人廉價的感覺。另外,一個星期上班五天,請公司補助或是自費購買可以天天換洗、熨燙的襯衫(上衣)、褲子裙裝等單品,異味、起毛球、皺褶等小細節也會影響在視覺上的專業度。
  • 如何挑選適合自己身型的辦公室衣著:較為豐滿的女子,上衣(襯衫)應該避免傳統式鈕釦設計的襯衫,應該選擇帶有小V領、樣式簡單的一件式上衣(直接套頭的),可以平衡上圍比例。下半身豐滿的女子,應該以直筒的裙裝、褲裝來搭配,並且適當地露出腳踝部位。上身豐滿或是下半身圓潤的女子,都很適合沒有腰身的西裝外套,不過長度至少要蓋過臀部一半才可以修飾身材。
  • 配件的重要性:挑選配件的品味是大部分上班族容易忽略的細節。如果不確定哪種風格適合自己,以簡單為原則就不容易出錯了。
  • 頭髮髮型:女子們的髮質、髮色以及盤綁方式,還有男子們是否定時修剪頭髮、是否有頭皮屑等細節都是上班族應該注意的。很多上班族早上趕時間出門,整理頭髮時只顧前面自己看得到的地方,而忘了後腦杓,也應該多加留意呢。

A while ago, I talked to a lady who was responsible for a project we work together. She told me that she likes and appreciates how I cooperate with her team. On the one hand, I was flattered. On the other hand, I felt great that my partner praised my work. It cheered me up after a long working day. A beautiful thing does not come so easy as it needs effort and time to develop, same as Maison Héroïne’s high-quality bags.

某次工作結束後,我和負責專案的公關聊起工作上的細節,沒想到得到了這位女士的稱讚;認為我在溝通上的尊重、進度的掌控與內容上的專業讓他們覺得和我一起工作很讓人放心。這是很大的鼓勵與肯定;也讓那時候剛結束工作的自己感到振奮。一個事件的發生到完成需要無數細節的考量、安排與執行;好比Maison Héroïne在包款設計上的執著與考量,才有辦法達到令人欣賞、愛不釋手的品質。
