If I had to pick just one colour from the trio of hues from S/S13‘s line-up of metallic leather totes from Burberry Prorsum, it would have to be this one in Metallic Petrol Blue. Measuring 40 cm across by 42 cm in height, the calf leather tote is laminated with a layer of foil, naturally explaining the metallic sheen that while bright, isn’t blinding, which can only be a good thing.
Besides being a great bag to carry around especially in the dark of night (I’m pretty sure it’s reflective too, no?), the fact that it comes with a large zip pocket and 3 rooomy-esque patch pockets on the inside can only be a bonus, especially for those with organisational issues.
And for those wanting something a tad more ‘eye-catching’, it also comes in Metallic Cowslip (a nice summery yellow) and Metallic Blue (which is simply, well, blue). As for myself, I’m sticking to the one in Metallic Petrol Blue, which reminds me of the colour of the sea, mint ice cream and greenbacks. All good, if you ask me.
