As menswear continues to develop and evolve, more and more men are warming up to the idea of carrying a bag with them. In order to combat the stigma of the so-called “man bag”, designers are working hard to combine modern, edgier trends with the shape and design of classic formal bags.
With this new release from the AW12 line, Ted Baker puts a modern spin on the traditional leather satchel. Made out of high quality leather and complete with refined details such as contrast leather trim and a golden Ted Baker logo, the Skolday bag can instantly smarten up any outfit. These details, in combination with the bag’s strict lines, give it a masculine yet elegant look.
The satchel comes with a detachable shoulder strap, providing you with two carrying options. Keeping it on your back gives off a more casual vibe while clutching it as a briefcase is a more formal option. The flap and the detailed metallic buckles on the front secure your belongings, and so do the internal pockets – convenient for valuables like your mobile phone, iPod or wallet.
The Ted Baker Skolday comes in four different colours, with an elegant grey-brown being the most classic. The other three – dark green, burgundy and mustard yellow – hit home as the three hottest colors for the upcoming winter season.
This satchel would make the perfect start to a new bag collection as well as a welcome addition to an already established one. Its high quality leather will last many seasons, becoming more and more beautiful with age. The classic design of the satchel together with the subtle pop of colour ensures this a fascinating investment piece.
