The Archive-Inspired Mini Pocket Bag

Through the years, Riccardo Tisci has shown himself to be a formidable force in luxury for each new young generation. An Italian designer at a British house, Tisci’s successful revamp of Burberry proves that in a time of relentless globalisation of style, one’s cultural roots don’t matter. He continues navigating the Englishness of Burberry by diving into the brand’s archives, taking out an old silhouette and making it new again for the latest object of desire — the mini Pocket Bag.

It’s quickly rising as an essential for creatures of style this summer, owing much, no doubt, to the designer’s natural instincts when it comes to fashioning haute streetwear. With a rectangular body in white canvas and a black topstitched leather trim that runs toward reinforced round handles on top, the chic micro briefcase is stamped with the Burberry logo in front. The front flap pocket and internal slip pockets offer ways to organise your essentials, while a complementary detachable, adjustable shoulder strap allows more than two ways to wear the piece. Its classic colour scheme and functional design makes it possibly one of the chicest fashion objects to accompany you out on the town once you can leave the house.
