洪铭铧 报道

本地电视剧收视每况愈下,不复以往的今天,还有收视保证这回事吗?联合早报记者翻出过去11年来所统计的年度收视榜数据,从演员、题材、监制和故事人这几方面,尝试找出本地剧收视保证王牌。

首先是找出谁是收视保证演员。

记者根据每年收视三甲的戏剧,找出主角,再根据各剧排名依次给分,如收视第三名的主角,每人1分;第二名每人2分;第一名每人4分。第一二名的分数差距较大,是为了凸显冠军剧的重要性。

另外,记者认为,凡是重头剧或是大堆头演员为主的戏剧,演员将不得分。这是因为这类剧的预算一般较大,有较多动作、爆破场面,也动员众多演员演出,可以说,这类剧对观众的吸引力,不在个别演员身上。

另一方面,有若干家庭剧以群戏为主,主配角的戏份差异不大,一律不给分以示公平。这么一来,能够打进三甲的小成本剧主角获得分数,才能彰显出其演员的号召力。

从2015年追溯至2005年的收视前三名戏剧、主角、剧种、监制、故事人如下表。

综观12年来的三甲,总共有38部剧上榜(2013年有三部剧共享第三)。其中,16部可归类为大堆头演员的重头剧或以群戏为主的剧集,剩下22部有明显主角可以计分。

统计结果,黄碧仁毫无悬念地以10分(一部冠军两部季军)遥遥领先。接着是黄俊雄、彭耀顺各以6分居次,再来瑞恩、王沺裁和夏雨同得5分排名第三。

得4分和3分的有超过10人,郑惠玉和欧萱(皆3分)都在其中。记得在90年代郑惠玉的事业巅峰时期,她就是电视人口中的收视灵丹,凡戏有她出现,总能拉抬几点收视。不过她近年减产,每年一剧,如果“押错宝”,收视表现就很平凡了。

重头剧的特色

其实,花比较多钱摄制的重头剧,只有四部摘下冠军。

如果扩大去看38部上榜剧,其中16部或将近一半是群戏为主,似也反映出新传媒的主角收视效应不太够,大堆头演员演出气氛热闹,比较吸引观众。

那么,重头剧又最常用哪些演员呢?他们是白薇秀、黄俊雄、李南星、欧萱、戚玉武和瑞恩,都有三部或以上。根据一些幕后人的说法,这显示他们可能是受力捧或重视的小生花旦,所以容易在重头剧中卡位。参与重头剧的好处是,当它收视高时,演员们都能生辉,若反应不佳,则很难挑人出来扛责,比起小成本剧,风险不大,相对安全。

家庭剧最受欢迎

剧种方面,以家庭观众为主要对象的电视剧,最受欢迎的题材是家庭剧,可说是“众望所归”,38部剧中有15部可归类为家庭剧。

但是家庭剧拍多了,难免走入瓶颈,有人认为本地剧一度出现家庭剧泛滥现象,造成年轻观众流失。

在剩余剧集中,怀旧剧和警匪剧各占四部、三部,是本地观众较喜爱的剧种。随着人口老化,医护剧过去几年慢慢崛起,越来越符合年长观众的口味,也反映在三甲名单中。

姜是老的辣

监制和故事人方面,按照和演员的计算法(冠军剧4分,亚军剧2分,季军剧1分),也得出以下的“收视保证”名单。

最资深的王尤红以12分居监制榜首,其次是李宁强、谢敏洋各11分(两人皆已离职),苏美莲得10分居第三。杨锡彬被调任马来西亚新传媒负责人后,影响表现,但凭被调前的表现也有7分。

故事人方面,也是最资深的洪荣狄以20分排第一,接着是刘清盆的15分,谢俊源有12分。同样的,全方位工作室的8分加上哇哇映画的5分达13分,刚好可打入三甲。不过有故事人透露,最近新传媒改变制度,提呈某个点子或案子的故事人,最终未必会被分配负责编写故事,据了解新的分配制度不太受欢迎。

联合早报记者试图通过一套实验性的标准来测量“收视保证”,这未必是唯一的标准,但或可抛砖引玉。

With You

RBKD: “With You” is a supernatural story about Zhang Yang (Chen Han Wei), the ghost, who sought Zhou Wei An’s help (Adrian Pang) to help his wife, Ye Si Qi (Rui En), to get over her grief. Toggle said that the refreshing story material appealed to viewers and hence raked in strong viewership figures and became the top-rated drama of 2011.

On the scariest thing about this drama: Toggle said nothing; they only felt pangs of sadness, a little joy, but no fear at all.

RBKD: Definitely a must-read for all fans! And a highly recommended article to the rest.

In this 14-page interview done in English with Rui En, we follow Toggle’s lead to revisit Rui En’s 14-year acting career journey in her own words. What a long ride it has been………

In this post, RBKD shares with you our after-thoughts and how to better appreciate this article, sparing you the exact details of the interview so that you may enjoy in its original state at Toggle. It’s like wine pairing you know? :P

Read on for those who prefer to read RBKD’s sharing first, and for those who prefer to head to Toggle first, click here.

一路走来不简单,谢谢瑞恩的坚持、你们的支持。超级红星奖或是里程碑,但肯定不是终点。有份一起看着她成长的你们,定会对此文章有所感触。献给你们。中英文都有,且内容都不相同;RBKD的简介也有另外的见解,建议都可阅读。

RBKD’s insights: Just scroll down :P

.

Pre-2007: The days of being ‘7 princesses’

Those were the days when “7 Princesses” were the talk of the town. Labeled as the “Ice Princess”, the association has always been a double-edged sword and understandably, non-conformist Rui En wasn’t comfortable with the labeling.

Still, what doesn’t kill you make you stronger; despite being ranked among the bottom few frequently back then, Rui En has certainly come a long way to her current state now.

Witty Rui En quipped, “who doesn’t love Elsa?” Indeed, now we know why even our young cousins adore Rui En? :p

Pre-2008: Before having a fanclub

Rui En described the years as ‘fuzzy’ and didn’t think she would have any fans or fanclub. We are really thankful to you peeps out there, for quietly supporting Rui En before RBKD came into the picture. Thanks for the love on our behalf :)

A role that got her on everyone’s radar: Metamorphosis (2007)

If each role was a generation, then ASP An Xiaoqian would be the predecessor of our beloved ASP Hu Xiaoman and INSP Ng Tze Keat. When you think of policewoman in local dramas, you think of Rui En. ’nuff said, we are thankful for that.

Post-2008: When RBKD came into her life

This page is diabetic and sugar overloaded. Warning: you may need your insulin shots.

Rui En shared with Toggle that everything changed when RBKD started. Quoting her, “they are everything to me and I’d not be where I am without them. That’s just as simple as that.”

Thanks Rui En, our lives changed when you entered ours too.

LOL at Rui En “complaining” to Toggle that RBKD sabotaged her. Who? What? When?! Read on as she shared more about her RBKD. :)

Xiaodong will always be simply special to fans. *wink*

.
The role she gained ‘acting enlightenment’: With You (2010)

Her first ever acting nomination, her first ever “Best Actress” award at Star Awards. Rui En said she was in a daze when she won, so were we. We are just glad and thankful, how Rui En has grown as an actress especially after this role.

.
The role that left everyone shell-shocked with her transformation: A Tale of 2 Cities (2011)

There were days when we were not used to seeing Rui En in heels and now there are days when we wonder how tall her heels have become. Her transformation and acceptance of more feminine appearance is just like her acting career, always changing, improving and open to changes.

Every role is a result of blood, sweat and tears and like reverse-horcrux, a part of every role will always live in Rui En. Just like Ya Le, just like any other role…..

The role in which she won her second and third best actress: Unriddle 2 (2012)

Fans, you get the answer you have been craving for.

Does Rui En want Unriddle 3? The answer is a big ‘Yes’. Read on to see how would she hope Xiaoman’s character would develop.

It is of course a pity, to note the harsh reality that Unriddle 3 is unlikely to happen any time soon (if it will ever happen) due to high cost and budget cuts. Never give up hoping ya?

Shoutout to Unriddle’s producer Paul Yuen and storywriter Phang Kai Yee, what say you? ;)

The first time people saw her in a comedic role: The Dream Makers (2013)

“Crane up, tilt down, zoom in. 最好有点王家卫的feel~”

Everyone loves Fang Tonglin; be it Tonglin on her own or with her bro as Fang Siblings (speaking of which, did you know that RBKD was the one who coined the term when reposting one of their selfies back then?) or with Zhanpeng and Jason. That’s why Tonglin gets the man! :p

From initial scepticism of being an over-the-top performance to eventual well-reception and love for a character so adorable, no wonder Tonglin makes it to Rui En’s Top 3 career-defining roles, after Siqi and Xiaoman.

The first time she crossed over to the dark side: Against The Tide (2014)

“Darkness cannot drive out darkness, hate cannot drive out hate, only love can.”

Who can forget this? Need we even say more?

There are times, most of the time in fact, when we hope that Rui En can be duly recognised for her respective roles with acting awards. But there are roles, not confined nor defined by the rules of awards, but recognised and acknowledged by the yardstick of the common viewer. This is one of those. Always our Best Actress. :)

Where to from now: Rui En’s progression to mature roles

Sure, fans might worry how Rui En has entered the land of no-return after her first ‘aunty’ role in upcoming “If Only I Could…..”

But more than anything else, fans just hope that Rui En gets to try a myriad of roles, defined by their depths and not age. Just like how Rui En do not wish to trap herself to the pigeonhole of being an idol or just become known for a certain type of roles, fans hope that her willingness to try diverse roles can be matched by equally varied range of opportunities too.

Aunty? Woa. Policewoman? Awesome. Goofy? Why not?

As long as you can deliver (and we know you will), by all means, challenge us with your multitude of roles and acting. We have adapted pretty well over the years, haven’t we? :p

So what motivates Rui En and keeps her going today?

Yup, so now Rui En has 2 cats and Bingo has been renamed muffin. Why huh? :p

Rui En claims that reading interviews of actors and actresses she admires as the fuel to keep her passion burning. Thank goodness for these people, hence you are still here in our lives.

Rui En also gave special thanks to many, including “angels sent from God” and her “Hype family” for always being there for her. Indeed. If you are reading this, you know you are included, you have always been there for her. Thank you for that.

Rui En’s legacy: To be able to empower women and young girls

Awards do not define Rui En.

There are those who crave for awards and fame, and there are those who wish to use the awards and fame for greater good.

In Hollywood there’s Leonardo Dicaprio who lent his voice for climate change in his acceptance speech for the coveted golden man trophy he had waited 22 years for.

In Singapore, Rui En shares how she hopes to inspire and empower women and young girls through her acting and everything. Keep it up, girl!

洪铭铧 报道

究竟谁会在竞争中胜出?

新传媒电视8频道每年都推出两部重头剧,所谓重头剧,即演员阵容比较强大,制作预算也比较高。今年的重头剧是《信约:我们的家园》和《志在四方2》。不过因为今年又是新加坡独立50周年,媒体发展管理局特别拨款制作一部具新加坡特色的电视剧,最后哇哇映画以新谣为故事背景的概念,抢得这个制作机会,《起飞》这部剧也被新传媒列为重头剧之一,使今年的重头剧变成了三部。

三部重头剧的特色,是有浓厚的新加坡色彩。《起飞》讲的是新加坡本土音乐新谣,《信约:我们的家园》有我国历史发展,《志在四方2》则有真真假假的本地电视圈传闻,让今年的电视成了名副其实的“SG50”年。

不过,重头剧不一定是收视保证,往年,砸重本拍摄的重头剧演出滑铁卢,收视不如小成本制作多得是。

在三部重头剧推出之前,最受人瞩目的是黄碧仁继《三个愿望》后再演的剧集《虎妈来了》,它是家庭剧题材,也是最受家庭观众喜爱的收视保证。果然《虎》推出后,收视多度突破百万,暂时领先。许多人好奇,《虎妈来了》会不会如《三个愿望》夺下年度收视冠军。三部重头剧来势汹汹,会对它造成怎样的冲击?

匿名发表看法

四剧火并,谁会胜出?本报邀请四部剧都没有参与的艺人陈泂江、黄俊雄、刘子绚、向云、雅慧、郑各评、周初明、朱厚任等八人预测收视排名。为了做到诚实、公正与客观,避开敏感性,本报允许艺人匿名发表看法。

新传媒品牌与宣传副总裁陈国明也受邀作预测,不过他婉拒,理由是“这四部剧的剧种和目标观众群都有所不同,很难单凭戏剧本身的风格或品质预测收视。我觉得我不便在两部剧已经播完、一部剧正在播映、和一部剧尚未播出之前对收视作出揣测。”诚如他说的,一部剧的收视会受到各方面影响,包括播映期是否碰上考试、假期或其他重大事件等。不过,如果单从天时、演员阵容、题材、宣传噱头等来作预测,未尝不可,从演员们的看法,也可以看出各人对本地观众收视喜好与习惯的观点与了解,有一定的趣味。

被八名艺人排在首位的戏剧得4分,次位3分,以此类推。经过综合排名,《志在四方2》以七个第一、一个第二,共31分排名第一。《起飞》《虎妈来了》《信约:我们的家园》以19分、16分、14分,依序排第二、三、四名。

《志在四方2》受到各方看好,主要是因为第一集已建立良好口碑,其次是陈莉萍、陈汉玮、陈泓宇、林慧玲这回换来刘松仁、陈美凤、黄碧仁、李南星等新港台兵团,明星效应不减反增。不少艺人觉得,《志2》以娱乐圈和其中的八卦、幕后秘辛为主题,对观众别具吸引力。此外,剧本平均发展各线,别具看头,也会引起收视兴趣。四号艺人妙语:“现实中的明争暗斗往往看不清楚,在戏剧里可以看个分明。”

《起飞》打着哇哇映画过去几年优异制作的招牌,有李铭顺、郑斌辉、郭舒贤、郑秀珍等具演技实力的阿哥阿姐,多年后首度合演,有一定号召力,且又结合戏剧与新加坡人的集体回忆——新谣,充满新鲜感。该剧还首创现实版戏中戏——把剧中的演唱会搬到戏外举办,并在社交媒体上分享新谣歌曲视频。

五号艺人认为《起》创新并具代表性,是他心目中的年度最佳电视剧,但叫好不叫座在预期中,显示本地观众的欣赏水平有待提高。三号艺人特别欣赏剧里的“优质老姜”,但认为剧情穿插太多回溯过去的片段(flashback),不容易讨好没有思考习惯的安娣观众。

《虎妈来了》是家庭剧,收视基本盘已在,题材是金牌故事人洪荣狄所拿手,从一个准后母的角度出发,看她怎样“拯救”一个“问题家庭”,是本地剧前所未有的尝试。另外,请来黄碧仁坐镇,已是收视保证,新鲜点是“虎妈”的年度热门话题。不过有些观众小看家庭剧的威力,有三名艺人觉得家庭剧看得多了,把它的收视排在最后一名。五号艺人说《虎》通俗热闹,老少咸宜,黄碧仁挟《三个愿望》气势演出,更添号召力。

《信约:我们的家园》是三部曲终结篇,排在年中播出,故事讲到独立后的历史,一些重大事件如油槽船爆炸、新世界酒店倒塌等,也写入剧情,会触及中年观众的记忆,引起共鸣,同时因应独立50年及国庆的热烈爱国气氛高潮,有所加分,新生代组成的演员阵容也可观。不过几名艺人认为年轻一代演员撑不起大局,也缺乏年代感和角色说服力,此外剧本也较前两集逊色。



从过去五年收视排名探测观众口味

这里回顾过去五年本地剧收视排名三甲,探测观众口味。

2010:
1.《我在你左右》【瑞恩主演】 2.《红白喜事》 3.《爱》(台剧) 4.《过好年》【瑞恩主演】

2011:
1.《四个门牌一个梦》2.《警徽天职》3.《行医》

2012:
1.《我们等你》2.《对对碰》(重头剧) 3.《花样人间》(重头剧)【瑞恩主演】

2013:
1.《警徽天职2》【瑞恩主演】 2.《志在四方》(重头剧)【瑞恩主演】 3.《信约:唐山到南洋》(重头剧)、《好运到》、《曙光》(并列)

2014:
1.《三个愿望》2.《警徽天职3》【瑞恩主演】 3.《Missy先生》4.《信约:动荡的年代》(重头剧)


从以上排名看来,本地观众的口味偏爱警匪剧,《警徽天职2》系列都打入三甲。该系列虽不被列为重头剧,但有警方赞助及协助拍摄,预算充足,演员阵容也强。

说到重头剧,收视表现时好时坏,看剧本、监制,也看剧种。

2010年,《红白喜事》高居第二,但《破天网》在五名外。2011年,《阿娣》和《星洲之夜》徘徊十大边缘,不受观众青睐。隔年,《对对碰》和《花样人间》双双打入三甲。2012年,《志在四方》再携《信约:唐山到南洋》进前三名。但去年,《信约:动荡的年代》只排第五,《球在你脚下》硬碰世界杯足球赛也栽在球下。

家庭剧题材被视为安全牌,毕竟主要的电视观众是家庭妇女,但题材拍多了,收视要突破冲高不易,2011年《四个门牌一个梦》结合新移民题材引起话题,在不受看好下夺得冠军。2012年,《对对碰》以少数被封重头剧处理的家庭剧题材,拿下第二名。2013年,《好运到》爆冷打入三甲。去年,《三个愿望》融合奇幻元素,成功称冠,也是历来制作素有口碑的哇哇映画首个收视第一。

虎妈和信约气势汹汹

《虎妈来了》《信约:我们的家园》已播毕,前者平均观众人数近102万人,20集中有一半集数观众破百万;后者平均观众数近99万人,30集中12集观众破百万。

《起飞》播映至今,仍无一集破百万。换句话说,三剧的排名是《虎》《我》和《起》。

RBKD: An interesting article by Xinmsn which hopes to see Rui En attempting 6 different types of roles based on pre-existing characters from past dramas and movies. These roles include:

a) Dual roles of a wrongfully murdered ghost and her living daughter in Shadows in the Dark

Rui En has never attempted horror dramas and it would be refreshing to see her balancing these two roles.

b) Indie musician in Begin Again

It’s been quite some time a music drama has aired and this role is ideal for Rui En who had released two full music albums and a few singles in her career.

c) Top actress falling from grace in You Who Came from The Stars

Even though this character is similar to Zhang Ya Le in A Tale of 2 Cities but nature is different. It’d be fun to see Rui En play an aloof trend-setting fashionista with a caustic tongue for once.

d) Doctor in Good Doctor

It’s an occupation Rui En has yet to try onscreen.

e) Hockey Player in Pride

Perfectly suitable for Rui En as she herself is a true blue hockey player during her schooling days.

f) High School teacher in Gokusen

Rui En’s an influential personality in her own right (trended worldwide on Twitter a few times) and it would be interesting to see her as an inspirational school teacher.

Share with us what do you think of Rui En in these roles and what other roles would you like to see Rui En attempt: forum

Actors turn down roles for a host of reasons.

Who: Rui En
No to: Kissing & intimate scenes

Call Rui En a prude or unprofessional but the local actress has openly voiced that she does not do kissing or intimate scenes. Oh, and she doesn’t give a rat’s a** about what you think either.

In 2008, the actress reportedly turned down the lead role in TV drama The Defining Moment due to a rape scene in the script.

While her refusal to compromise might limit her opportunities, it does not seem to have hurt her popularity or career.

The 32-year-old has bagged Best Actress trophies every year since 2011 – twice in the Star Awards (2011 and 2013), and once in the Asian Television Awards (2012) – and has made it to the Star Awards Top 10 Most Popular Female Artiste list (decided by public voting) every year since 2005.

You might say she’s got attitude, we prefer character. Stick to your guns, Rui En. Why join them when you can beat them?

张启怀报道

本地演艺圈刮起一阵改名风潮,你是不是也被艺人们的新旧名字搞得有点乱了呢?

事实上,艺人改名已不是什么新鲜事。有些艺人为了增加人气这么做,有些为了健康,也有些纯粹觉得新艺名更好听、更亲切。

不过,改名是否真的就能够改运吗?

xinmsn盘点改过名字的本地艺人,有谁改名后演艺表现突飞猛进,又有谁星途始终不见起色?

芮恩 〉瑞恩

改名几次: 2

改名改运: 3 颗星

瑞恩2002年出道时,公司替她取了艺名芮恩。她曾以芮恩之名发行了一张同名专辑,但在乐坛表现平平,之后却在本地电视圈闯出一片天。其冰冷公主的鲜明形象,让她在一众公主花旦中出位。

2008年,累积了一定演技与人气的她,宣布改用自己的本名瑞恩,并再度发行中文专辑。

瑞恩当时表示,一直以来自己好像穿着不合身的外套,这次改用本名,有着将最真实的瑞恩呈现在观众与粉丝面前的意义。

xinmsn 讲评:

有趣的是,瑞恩的运势似乎随着改名,有了明显的进步。2011年,她凭《我在你左右》夺得“最佳女主角”;2年后,再度以《最火搭档II》拿下此奖。

同时,瑞恩的粉丝团“瑞不可当”也是本地粉丝俱乐部当中规模最庞大的之一,举凡任何投票有关活动,粉丝都会铆足全力为偶像投票,瑞恩也几乎每每都榜上有名!

It comes as a surprise when actress Rui En says some of her favourite bags are brand-less canvas totes, and that she used to be a tomboy who hated dresses.

After all, the 32-year-old was dressed in a flattering and slinky Grecian-style toga dress for this interview and photoshoot.

And who can forget the beautiful plum Christian Dior tulle gown she wore at the Star Awards show in April, where she won her second Best Actress award. She also won that night for Favourite Female Character and Top 10 Most Popular Artistes.

“It was an Academy Awards-ready gown, I chose it just three weeks before the event, and I looked forward to wearing it.”

“It was ‘princessy’ but the dark colour made it classic and ‘me’.”

She admits she could have handled the dress more elegantly that night. She had seemed exasperated at times when she had difficulty moving about in the gown.

“It was lightweight but there were so many layers of fabric and I was kind of wrestling with it,” she says.

“But I promise I will get better at this.”

This disarming honesty and lack of pretension, on top of her pretty girl-next-door looks and acting chops, have won Rui En fans, as well as the attention of marketers.

In May, she was named one of the faces of the L’Oreal Paris Youth Code skincare range. She joins a roll call of A-list international celebrities, such as Gong Li, Li Bingbing and Fan Bingbing, who also front the range of skincare.

The ambassadorship is apt as Rui En is a self-professed beauty junkie. She loves trying new skincare products and make-up and uses a different mask every night on her dry and intolerant skin.

To keep healthy and give her face that extra glow, she works out religiously with home videos. And every morning, she downs green detox drinks made from recipes she found on the Internet.

Rui En started her career in show business when she was 20. But the industry started to take serious notice of her only in 2011 when she won her first Best Actress trophy at the Star Awards that year for her role as a widow in the drama serial With You.

Rui En says the nomination in 2011 made her pay more attention to her clothes.

“It was the first time I had to dress up properly for an event and I had so many choices. I felt very lucky but confused too.”

“My sense of style was not set then, so it was just a whirlwind of trying on all sorts of outfits and just seeing what worked for my image.”

In the end, she picked a steel grey Hermes pantsuit, with a black belt tied stylishly and provocatively around her neck.

These days, she knows instinctively what she likes: “Nothing revealing, but classic, simple, clean and accessorised with diamonds.”

7 things in her bag

1. Soul by Ludacris headphones

This was a Christmas present I received last year. Its sound quality is good and it blocks out noise. I love music, and listen to everything from country to K-pop. When I’m travelling, I’ll plug into this and be in my own world.

2. Museli bars

I eat these when I am shooting and have to be constantly on the go. They are quite sweet and taste good, and they keep me from bingeing on the unhealthy stuff.

3. L’Oreal Youth Code prodigious rejuvenating pre-essence

I apply this essence on my bare skin and it helps everything else that I use later, such as serums and moisturisers, to be more easily absorbed.

4. Insect Repellent

This is an insect repellent soldiers use; I bought it from the army market in Beach Road. It is a must whenever I’m filming outdoors. It does not smell but is so potent that it is not safe to be applied on the skin. I apply it on the hem of my clothing instead and the mosquitoes do not come near me.

5. Memoirs of a radical lawyer by Michael Mansfield

I’m currently reading this for research purposes as I play a lawyer in the upcoming Chinese legal drama Sudden. Whenever I take on a new role, I will read about the character’s occupation as it helps me with my acting.

6. Creative electronic chinese dictionary

A friend gave this to me as a birthday present two or three years ago. It tells me how to pronounce Chinese words I’m unfamiliar with and their meanings.

7. Scripts

I feel naked without my scripts. This is for Sudden, which I am currently working on and which airs in September on MediaCorp Channel 8. I prefer physical copies because I can make notes in the margin.

Her bag

A fan gave this to me. I own about 20 to 30 canvas tote bags. I carry them around when I am filming or not working. For designer bags, my favourite is the Balenciaga Motorcycle bag because it is very versatile.
