A frequently recurring design since it was first launched back in S/S10 (yes, I do make it sound like it was launched eons ago, don’t I?), the Burberry Prorsum Vintage House Check Tote from the Pre-Fall 2011 Womens Burberry Prorsum collection has been given a quick makeover, with leather trim in bright tangerine, which is keeping in line with the main collection that also features trench coats and puffy vests for both men and women.
Composed of 80% cotton and 20% calfskin, the tote is generous, roomy and lightweight too (I would know, I took the original out for a spin when it was first launched). Priced at SGD2195 and available now at Burberry boutiques island wide in Singapore, it is one of those colour combinations that’s always suited for our locale come what may.
It would make a great weekender, or a good baby bag, just be careful with all those leaky milk bottles. On the other hand, the tote already comes treated with water repellent so you can afford to be a tad less careful.
If however the one in Tangerine is not your thing, they do have some other similar designs (in the form of hobos and smaller totes) online at Burberry where you can purchase directly from as well. Only thing is, I’m not loving the trims in Dark Red. Or check out the originals, they’re still available as well.
