My latest score is a brand new "Angel" messenger bag in dark grey by Francesco Biasia pictured above (pardon the fuzzy iphone pics). It is part of the Biasia fall/winter 2009-2010 collection. Found this gem at the Shoe-Inn Warehouse Sale today. Details include:
- genuine polished italian calf leather
- gunmetal colored hardware
- 2 exterior side slip pockets
- 1 large exterior zip pocket
- top zip closure
- dual handles
- cross body strap for versatility
- lined with a graphic print material
- 1 large interior zip pocket
- 2 interior slip pockets.
The reason I chose this one? I've been thinking about getting a messenger style bag for some time because as the cold weather remains and as February snow days and the threat of icey sidewalks loom, I wanted a bag that would keep my hands free when I'm navigating around the city. It has nice detailing and has a touch of "slouch." Not to mention that longer hangbag straps are back in vogue. This was exactly what I needed. The grey leather works well with just about any color, the leather is soft and the bag is spacious enough for all my necessities, a magazine, paperwork or an extra sweater. I'm excited to wear it to work tomorrow!
