Victoria Beckham Harper Textured-Leather Tote: Perfection, Perfected

This Harper is way more serious looking than Beckham’s baby but I can see why Posh would name this bag after her. It is sheer perfection. A bag for all times, the classic appeal cannot be over stated. It is basically a Birkin shape, if you look at it from the side, you will see the resemblance, but dare I say, she has made improvements on the Holy Grail of bags. The simple flap and pared down hardware obviously makes things easier but those patch pockets are life savers. The interior also has major organization – dedicated phone pouch, etc. I am sure her inspiration came about because like everyone who loves the Birkin still laments, “Damn, I wish this bag was more functional!”. Another huge plus, the price tag is actually manageable. At Net-a-Porter for $2700.

  1. Absolutely stunning! But I worry that it might have the same problem as other bags where the carry-handle is on the top of the flap — you have to set the bag down to open it or else it just flops open & it’s awkward to get into. Please tell me that it’s just the photo that makes it look that way?? Otherwise, it’s just perfect!

  2. My “Harper” was just delivered thanks to Net-a-Porter. It’s really perfection. Beautifully structured, luxe leather, right size. One can see that a lot of thinking about what (business) women need in a bag.
