In 1856, Thomas Burberry created a powerhouse of fashion which still remains strong to this day. For over a century and a half, Burberry has been producing aesthetically pleasing items of clothing manifested with a true luxurious feel. In recent times, the brand has branched out into sub-brands aimed at various different sectors of the fashion market, creating clothing lines such as Burberry London (that facilitates a more dressed up, formal market) and Burberry Sport (which has a younger target audience).
Even considering the mass expansion of this brand, Burberry Prorsum is still the high end, luxurious sub-brand portrayed around the world at various prestigious fashion events. Many fashion shows courtesy of Burberry have encapsulated the very definition of sartorialism – their spring/summer 2012 show in Milan was no different.
One of the key items which caught my eye from this fashion show was their woven leather tote bag. Although many leather tote bags have been on sale before, not many have incorporated a woven construction; a design technique that has also been seen on footwear this season. This bag will most surely add a touch of class to any outfit whilst also offering you a unique tactile element that can be played upon through your choice of surrounding fabrics.
Even though the price tag may seem expensive, one must consider that this bag may potentially last you a lifetime if proper care is given. Will Colman has already provided you a detailed guide to caring for your leathers.
This bag has a huge capacity of 22 litres, two top handles, a pouch pocket, external and internal zip fastenings and it is available in two different colours. Along with all this, the bag is finished off with taupe stitching, which only adds to its luxurious nature.
Overall, this is a high end, highly recommended, well designed piece of Burberry perfection.
