Valentino is best known for its glamorous womenswear, but as their menswear is equally classic and timeless. This black leather briefcase from the Italian powerhouse is a modern interpretation on the traditional briefcase, with detailed studs at the bottom and a gold-tone embossed clasp fastening. The hanging fob detail breaks away from the banal feel of other work leather bags. The dimensions are not as long or wide as your average briefcase which is a positive – I often find briefcases inconveniently large and cumbersome. There’s an internal zip pocket for the important items and a spacious interior for documents and a laptop. Best for young professionals, although an older gentleman would find the minimalist touch appealing.
