In case anyone gets confused, this isn’t one of the S/S13 bags Burberry Prorsum showed on the runway yesterday. But it is new, from the F/W12 collection that I just spotted yesterday while doing my rounds online. Called the Burberry Prorsum Sartorial Leather Tote, it’s a large leather tote which features a distinctive belted detail that goes around the bag that measures 45 cm by 42 cm.
On the inside, besides the prerequisite number of patch and zip pockets, the lining is interestingly composed of quilted satin which certainly gives it a few more points as far as the finishing department is concerned. And for good measure there’s even a detachable shoulder strap thrown in, a great consideration for those who want to be handsfree while moving from point to point.
Frankly, as far as this handsome duffle is concerned, one would be hard pressed to say anything negative about it. The only real issue would perhaps be the weight of it, given that it’s full leather, but that’s usually the case if one is in the market for a sturdy, hardwearing workhorse that will only age beautifully over time.
Available in Bright Tortoiseshell (shown above), the SGD4025 bag also comes in Black that’s specially catered to the less adventurous amongst you.
