Burberry Leather Satchel Bag
I was wandering around on the Nordstroms website today when I stumbled across this handbag you see pictured above. It is a new style from Burberry for Fall 2008 and it is simply referred to as “Leather Satchel”. How does everyone feel about this bag? Personally, I find this bag rather attractive. The funny thing is, it has been a very long time since I last saw a Burberry bag that I liked. But this bag doesn’t really look like a Burberry when you look at if from a distance, so perhaps that is why I actually like it. I love the smooth, pebbled leather and the inverted pleat in the center adds just the right amount of interest. The style is both sophisticated and elegant with it’s curvy, yet simple, shape. Best of all, this bag doesn’t scream Burberry (No Burberry check here!). The only thing that gives it away is the discrete Burberry crest in the form on a metal plaque. So if you are looking for a classic style that you can wear year round, this Burberry Leather Satchel would make an excellent choice.
The Burberry Leather Satchel is constructed of soft, calfskin leather. It measures 19″ x 10″ x 10″ and the double handles have an 8″ drop. The interior features zippered, cell phone, and PDA pockets. It is currently available in Tan, but I wonder if it doesn’t come in Black as well.
