I have a confession to make: I’m always on the hunt for a new bag. It’s an addiction which I readily admit but have failed to do anything to curb it. When I’m out shopping (or online shopping), the first thing I look for are bags. So to help track my addiction, I’m starting a new section for this blog where I’ll be looking at all the bags I want. I call it the ‘Search for the Perfect Man Bag’, and it starts with this holdall bag from iconic British retailer Paul Smith.
I’ve always loved Paul Smith how its unafraid to play with quirky details; what could have just been a classic slick textured-leather holdall, now comes with a accented midnight-blue handles. Also, I love the flash of purple – the brand’s favourite colour – in the interior and the great size it comes it. Measuring 17″ x 12″ 8″, this holdall has an internal padded laptop sleeve so you can bring it work. It’s also spacious enough as a gym bag. It comes with a detachable strap so you can wear it whatever way you want.
As with any bag I look for, this bag is made from premium leather, meaning it won’t go out of style. Overall, this holdall is a refined and contemporary offering from a classic British brand.
