Meet Our Latest Bag Crush: The Burberry Satchel in Indigo Leather
It’s no secret that Burberry makes some of the best classic bags around. While other designers are constantly trying to push their limits and reinvent the wheel, Burberry tends to stick to its roots, offering classic shapes in quality materials with impeccable craftsmanship. Burberry’s The Satchel in Leather is no different.
Artisanally crafted in Italy, this structured satchel is made of soft, supple leather with hand-stitched details. I love the contrasting calf leather strap, which is adjustable. This bag can be sized to fit everyone—short or tall! The classic shape is what really drew me in. I love the clean lines and subtle detailing. The buckled closure is pretty easy to get in and out of, and it’s my absolute favorite part of the bag. When I think Burberry, this is exactly the type of bag that comes to mind—classic and chic, with clean lines and simple details. The leather soaks up the color so well, and I am just obsessed with The Satchel in navy—or indigo, as it’s called on Burberry’s website. Navy is the perfect way to wear color while still having a bag that can work as a neutral.
When you open the satchel, there is a small outside pocket, which fit my iPhone (it wouldn’t fit the plus size, though). Inside, I fit my sunglasses in their cloth pouch, a small zip-around wallet, a chapstick and a lipstick. There is one interior slit pocket, which is perfect for a MetroCard or credit cards with an ID, if you’re the type to skip a wallet with smaller bags. While this bag is small, it’s mighty stylish, which makes it a great day bag for the girl who doesn’t carry much. Overall, the dimensions of The Satchel are 6.9″ x 2.4″ x 5.7″, which retails for $1,395 via Burberry.
