The Material Boy #409
Mulberry Elkington Briefcase
The ladies have invaded our male bags territory with the recent influx of briefcase inspired satchels. Leading the way, of course is Proenza Schouler's PS1 bag and Mulberry's Alexa Bag.
But if both of these ladies bags still finds you (the guy) feeling queasy carrying female styles, then perhaps Mulberry's Elkington Briefcase is a perfect alternative! Measuring 27.5cm(h) x 37.5cm(w) x 7.5cm(d), it is compact enough for daily use but roomy enough for documents, or even small laptops. I love the schoolboy design but done in a more classic way for the guys. What's more, at a price tag of £525, this is easier on your wallet than any of the 2 women's designs.
I am smitten by the PS1 bag. But the extra large size is hard to track down outside of USA and costs an arm and leg (US$2350!).... so perhaps this Mulberry Elkington can just stand in as my 'male PS1 bag':-P
Comes in chocolate, black and oak colours.
Retail price: £525. Where to buy: www.mulberry.com or Mulberry Boutique at Hilton Hotel, Singapore
