If you’re one of those men plying the Raffles Place/Tanjong Pagar MRTs to gleaming skyscrapers every morning, you could be in the market for one of these. From Italian label Serapian, the Evolution Slanted Edge Briefcase measures 42 cm by 30.5 cm, and is made of leather that’s both grained and water-resistant, much like Saffiano leather which is as hardy and durable as it gets.
What’s more unique about it is perhaps the fact that it expands towards the bottom, giving you much needed space if you ever needed it. Otherwise, it’s as slim as it gets, with the top handles ‘retracting’ into the briefcase when they’re are not required. It also comes with a shoulder sling, allowing it to go from briefcase to messenger in an instant.
Priced at around SGD979 via LUISAVIAROMA, it comes in 4 colours, two for ‘serious’ executives (Black and Grey), and two for those who prefer some colour and are a tad braver (Yellow, Blue). Hardy, slim (great for maneuvering with especially during rush hour) and rather affordable. All in all, it’s pretty decent, if you ask me.
