After ranting about how all bags these days look the same, it’s nice to come across something that can straddle the line between classic and unique. The grainy leather gives this Burberry a worn-in look, but the structured shape shows that it’s a positively modern design. Without going into novelty territory (i.e. Maison Martin Margiela’s circular clutch), the hybrid tote/bowler offers a dash of spunk to wind you up. This is the professional black bag you need for work – big enough for your iPad but not so large that it’ll weigh you down after a long day. Plus, it’s always tempting when Burberry goes san tartan. A cute labeled luggage tag replaces the iconic check as their identifier (that and some logo-engraved hardware at the top – they couldn’t be too subtle, could they??). Available at Neiman Marcus for $1,495.
