I've always had a thing for folded bags, especially those in buttery-soft and supple leather.
I must admit that I ain't a messenger bag type, but a messenger bag does seem to be quite functional and versatile.
I certainly don't like the idea that it creases my clothes when I sling it across my chest, but it does allows greater movement for both my hands.
This messenger bag from the Givenchy Spring/Summer 2011 collection is luxurious yet understated. And I'd like to think that it won't be slung across the chest of just any random guy on the street. That's a total plus point. =)
