We all know that girls love accessories. Whether it’s a necklace, earrings, colorful bracelets or a wristwatch, the right accessories can make any girl look like a showstopper. Every girl has her own style statement and accessories can help them stand out. These are the five accessories that we loved on Duriana and would like to share with you. 🙂
Statement necklaces are making a trend this year. Whether you want to add a color to a mono color dress, add the unexpected to basics, make a white shirt look more fun or even dress up your office outfit, this statement necklace is perfect for all these situations. Check it out!
When it comes to all things designer, you don’t exactly have to spend top dollar every time, all the time. We compiled Duriana’s best luxury listings from a pair of pre-loved Chanel earrings to a vintage Hermes scarf! Find out what else we found…
Hermes Kelly S$16,900
This is probably Duriana’s most expensive listing ever but with reason, of course. Seller @AndreLau in Singapore is letting go of her Hermes Kelly 35 Gold Retourne bag, which comes in Togo leather and palladium hardware, for a steep S$16,900. And as her product description reads the offer is “slightly negotiable” — so don’t expect too much of a cutback!
Authentic Chanel Classic Earring, S$360
As far as luxe accessories go, a pair of Chanel earrings will glam up any outfit – even if you’re wearing a simple tank and jeans. The seller @SHOPPEScollection rates condition as 9.8/10, almost like brand new.
LV Speedy Monogram S$750
For those who love a classic design, this model by Louis Vuitton has most certainly stood the test of time. Seller @shopNBfab rates condition 8/10, comes with original no dust bag.
Prada Wallet S$690
According to Feng Shui beliefs, a red wallet energises success — and the money that comes with it. So, if you’re going to own a wallet in the colour of prosperity, it might as well be Prada.
Authentic Hermes Silk Scarf, USD165
Whether you use it as a scarf, bandana or to tie around the handle of your bag, Hermes scarves are the fanciest kind of accessory one can own. Although, its a little pricey (USD165) — just remember, it is vintage 🙂
We’re not playing around when we say the Duriana marketplace is a treasure trove of rare and quirky items you’ll probably never find anywhere else. Don’t believe us? Keep on reading then…
Tabletop Joystick Retro Game
Who remembers Alien Attack? A tabletop arcade game from the 1970s! This console is fully functional, works like a brand new game and is also in mint condition. Priced at SGD 150.
M&Ms Candy Dispenser
For those with a penchant for candies, you’ll go gaga over this listing – an M&Ms Candy Dispenser! Great little addition to any kitchen for candy lovers of all ages. Fancy hearing another interesting fact? Seller @Ameliachiang bought it from New York City! Yes, you won’t be able to find it in Malaysia!
Vespa Super 150
It is no secret that the Vespa is the most classic motorbike model in history – used regularly as a starring prop in countless movies from the golden era of European Cinema. Duriana seller @apekaiman129 is selling his for a cool SGD850.
An Autographed No Doubt T-Shirt
Seller @nightsurferules walked away with this SIGNED No Doubt t-shirt during a contest, and is now selling it for RM60, which is a real steal if you ask me. It is a Return Of Saturn t-shirt, which is the band’s fourth album, but first as a quartet following the departure of their keyboardist Eric Stefani. And, it was released 14 years ago! Wow… talk about a piece of music history!

Are you lover of all things vintage? We’ve got the 411 on where you can shop for rare items you never knew even existed
TF001 3rd Floor, BB Plaza, Jalan Bukit Bintang
Tucked away in the quiet BB Plaza (next to Sungei Wang) is Buntil, a two-lot shop, which will appease the most seasoned of vintage collectors. Here, you will find a large collection of letterman jackets, vintage denim jackets, jeans and an impressive lot of official concert tour tshirts from the likes of Queen (RM689), Bruce Springsteen & The E Street Band (RM689) and Michael Jackson’s notable Beat It Tour (RM500).
With 15 years of experience under his belt, owner Lan (photographed in feature image) usually buys his bundles from Thailand. A bit like US reality series Storage Wars, the contents of the bundle are unknown until after the purchase. “When you buy a bundle. You don’t know what’s inside. The stuff you get is collected from US, Japan and around Asia,” he explains. And what was the most valuable bundle purchase he’s ever made? “It was a bundle with an original Levis jacket from 1947 worth RM7000.”
Lot 24, Level G2, Publika, Jalan Dutamas 1, Solaris Dutamas
At first glance, Hariz Vintage looks like an assuming furniture shop, stocked with wooden furniture, however, upon closer inspection, you’ll find a collection of national treasures from a framed jacket worn by the young prince of Nusantara to old official press photographs and locally printed magazines you never knew existed.
Walking through the store, you almost feel like you’re being treated to a history lesson in Malaysian heritage. But don’t get me wrong; the shop also has its fair share of western memorabilia – an old LIFE Magazine with the legendary Winston Churchill as its cover boy, Daily Mirror newspapers from the late 1940s and records from the 60ss and 70s are just some of its incredible memorabilia up for sale – worth a visit for both collectors and inquisitive minds alike.
Yes, its true that brick and mortar stores allow for the touch-and-feel factor but mobile marketplace apps are on-the-go, which ultimately bring that fleamarket thrifting experience to the palm of your hand. Enter, Duriana. A new social selling app which leverages all kinds of vintage sellers, connecting likeminded collectors on one platform. A simple search of ‘vintage’ which allow you to discover a world of rare items from an old vintage Yashica camera to eclectic collection of rare toys.
With the first and second day over and out, we look towards the final day. Here are three festival essentials you may want to bring along to the “jungle”
Capture all your moments on video or film. Yuna, Pharrell Williams, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Rudimental are set to hit the stage today. Forget your iPhone, arm yourself with a DLSR.
With over four stages, expect to do a fair amount of walking in between. You will have a lot of ground to cover. In order to catch all your favourite acts, you will have to manage your time wisely. Make sure your shoes are comfy!
Avoid carrying clutch bags. With a crowd of over 50,000 expected, there will be pushing and shoving and the last thing you need is another bag to worry about. Pack your things in backpack or strapped bag and sling it across your body. Easy.
Immortalized by US-based streetwear brand Joyrich, Bart Simpson is now the face of a new craze that has swept Hollywood and beyond
No one does quirky prints better than Joyrich, a streetwear brand worn by celebrity A-listers and supermodels. Early in the year, they teamed up with the creators of the Simpsons to celebrate the show’s iconic 25th anniversary. The result? A sartorial homage to the long-standing Matt Groening series which comprised of bold Bart Simpson graphics sprawled across bags, tees and varsity jackets.
If you’re not willing to drop a few hundred on the collection, here are a few replicas that cost significantly less.
