Burberry hit a home run with the Pocket Bag, thanks to the archival-inspired silhouette that’s equal parts chic and functional, with bonus points for being totally user-friendly. All of that plus the fact that it comes in a pretty wide range of sizes makes it a worthy contender set to become an icon from the British luxury house, so if you’ve always wanted to own a piece of Burberry, this will have to be it.
The Pocket Bag family primarily come with a logo-graphic printed on the front pocket, signifying a new shift in focus from the checkered monogram prints that Burberry was often associated with in the past few years. They also come with price tags that won’t break the bank, especially with the Mini Pocket Bag that starts from SGD1650. Don’t be fooled by the size though, because it is anything but ‘mini’, measuring 26.5 cm wide and 23 cm high that’s great for a day out.
They also come in several canvas/leather options, with colours that work well with almost any outfit you have in mind. And with canvas being the primary material of the bag, it also remains lightweight when in use, so you can sling it effortlessly over the shoulder (yes, they are all sold with a detachable strap) should you prefer a hands-free look.
The good news is that previously sold out colours such as Black and Tan have recently been restocked online and in stores, so you can grab them now if you missed out on the initial drop several months back. Other refreshing new colours include Blush Pink, Orange, Pale Blue, and the tri-coloured combination of Black/Grey/Tan. There are also bags in raffia, as well as the latest introductions in latticed leather, along with the monogrammed canvas that’s one for the logo lovers.
Made for everyone, the Pocket Bag is a timeless piece that transcends seasons and trends. And because small is always beautiful, this should be the next bag you bring home.
